An exercise in naming

This reddit thread is beautiful. The rules are simple: remove one letter from a game title, what's the new synopsis? One example: "Ass Effect: an open world ass simulator. You have can choose of of three characters to play as: a donkey known as wild-ass, a jerk known as jerk-ass, or an an anthropomorphic butt known as Ass-ass.You can explore the world by trotting, walking, or gas-propelled rolling, respectively. Each class has a different interaction wheel, each having 3 choices. Wild-Ass: you can either bray, kick, or bray and kick. Jerk-ass: flip off, key car, or insult. Ass-Ass: poo here, poo there, or poo EVERYWHERE."
