Here are a couple.


Doom (2016)

Subtitle: The Road to Hell

Reasoning: Thus far, there have not been many main series Doom games. Entries have mostly either had a number (Doom 3) or a single word modifier (Final Doom). The chief exception is Doom II: Hell on Earth. "Hell on Earth" carries a double meaning, since it both refers to a bad situation and the game's actual plot, where demons invade Earth. The Road to Hell would do something similar. Not only does it literally describe Hell and methods of going there, it is part of the idiom "The Road to Hell is filled with Good Intentions." This references the game's plot, where well meaning researchers try to solve the energy crisis using Hell Energy.


Mortal Kombat (2011)

Subtitle: Shao Kahn's Legacy

Reasoning: The premise of the game is that Shao Kahn, the recurring antagonist of the series who was largely absent at points, has emerged victorious, forcing one of the protagonists to go back to the era of the classic games. Not only is he the main antagonist in this game, but the game hearkens back to the height of his prominence. So this game refers to Shao Kahn, the force behind the story, and the "Legacy" of the series, particularity its roots.


Tomb Raider (2013)

Subtitle: Origins

Reasoning: I'm a bit unsure about this one. It's a reboot that goes back to Lara Croft's early days, so Origins should be an obvious pick. But this isn't even the first reboot of the series. The previous one was about seven years earlier! Put this one down as tentative.

Love and tolerate.
