The Greatest Engrish in Gaming History!

Video Game Engrish

There are some doozies out there.

Video games are developed all over the world. When a company wants to localise their game for a new market, they’ll either outsource or do it in house. However, English isn’t always the first language of those chosen to do it.  Leading to some absolutely hilarious mistakes or grammatical errors. Nowadays, this is less of a problem but it was a widespread issue in gaming’s history. Here are some of the best and greatest examples of “Engrish” in gaming history!
