Sit and digest the new Dissidia game's title for a second - DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim]:  Final Fantasy

We don't think we're exaggerating when we say this is truly the worst name for a video game ever conceived. But then, we expect nothing less from the publisher who puts the 13th iteration of their franchise under the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" banner. Cut it out Square. It's dumb. Not so..
