Talk:Simon's Simulations

Name

In the article, including the title, it is said that the name of the game is the Mysterious-Dungeon Simulation Game, however, where it says that it sounds like it is merely describing the game, rather than titling it. "His mysterious-dungeon simulation game ..." not even capitalizing the words. Simon calls it "Simon's Simulations" in capital letters, signifying that this is indeed the title. I say a name change is in order. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zenox (talk) 09:30, 23 November 2010

I'm not too sure. It seems from the reference that he is refering to the actual building or service as "Simon's Simulations", not the game itself; that's the vibe I've always felt from people that say "Welcome to _____". If that's the only quote we have evidence for, I say we keep the name as is, despite its lack of "officiality". As such, I feel the article is poorly written; it assumes that from the ambiguous quote the game itself is titled "Simon's Simulations", not even taking into account that it may be the building's name instead. And sign your posts, dude! XD User:Cipriano 119/sig 11:50, 23 November 2010 (EST)
If anything, this article should be moved to "Simon's Simulations" if that is the actual name of the place, and the game should be a subsection in that article. User:Cipriano 119/sig 11:52, 23 November 2010 (EST)
Which, of the two names, is the most mentioned? I mean, is one of the names mentioned more than once? That would help to determine which is the proper name. --User:K2L/sig 12:14, 23 November 2010 (EST)
Both are only mentioned once, but just look at the context:
"Ho ho! Here we are! You've come to the fabulous Simon's Simulations!" - Simon
"His mysterious dungeon-simulation game is very popular in Hyrule. It gives players the illusion of fighting real monsters in real dungeons." - Figurine Description.
To me, the latter just seems like it's describing the store. Again, it's not capitalized like the former is. To me, there's no doubt about it, the store's named Simon's Simulations.ZENOX T C 17:30, 27 November 2010 (EST)
