    Umbrella is now a real world company, They even have the rights to the logo.

    This sucks. I thought these were supposed to be THE most famous, not just a few he got off google images. Out of all of these, Umbrella Corp and Nuka-Cola are the only ones that are even close to being famous. If you're gonna do Borderlands, Hyperion is the only one that is famous as they are the only reason vault hunters are there. Brands that are ACTUALLY famous would be Shinra from FFVII and Silph Co. from Pokemon.

    Nuka cola plant is in DC, Sunset Sasparilla is in NV, and the varients of Nuka Cola are in NV

    Sorry, bothersome - PSO didn't have the Pizza Hut crap. I do believe you're looking towards Phantasy Star Portable. 2. And potentially PSZero.

    Nobody noticed the blue colour of the ship and the companies name close resemblance to the manufacturer of a blue pill? How did you miss that but picked up on Sprunk?
  • Claycrow17 - August 10, 2014 6:42 p.m.

    Really? Zombrex isn't on here?
  • brandon-sanders - July 6, 2014 9:31 p.m.

    I find it strange that the author would include Sprunk from GTA and not Ammunation or Pay and Spray/ Los Santos Customs

    There are so many fleshed-out brands and companies in the GTA world alone that you could probably do an entire article on just that. From car companies, fast food chains and various media all the way down to liquor stores, cigarettes and lottery tickets. Even most of the little "throw away" shops and restaurants that are just there for filler often have clever names, slogans and/or displays. Many of them cleverly subtle with the joke or reference, as well.

    no kidding, man
  • Cloak_and_Dagger - June 10, 2014 1:56 p.m.

    I'm somewhat surprised that Gadgetron or Megacorp from the Ratchet and Clank games aren't on here. Or one of the many corporations from the Armored Core games (Kisaragi being one of my favorites).
  • Cloak_and_Dagger - June 10, 2014 2:08 p.m.

    (Stupid cat made me send that before it was finished.) Anyway, if Aperture is on there, Black Mesa should be, too, or maybe the player driven corporations of EVE Online... I can think of so many corporations that I believe should be on there, but I think I'll leave it to other people to point them out, since they're doing such a good job already in the comments down here.

    First of all, the nuka cola factory wasn't in the Mojave Wasteland, it was in the Capitol Wasteland. Secondly, all bottle caps are used as currency, the blue star caps are from a different brand, Sunset Sassperila, and further more can't be used as currency, because they're part of a quest. Get your shit straight.

    Did you even play BioShock? Fontaine is the one that started the plasmid business. Ryan "took it over" when he had Fontaine killed and his gang put inside Fontaines Department store, which was then sunk several hundred feet lower than Rapture herself. Because Fontaine was a crook

    There is one serious flaw in this post. WHERE ARE THE WUNDER-FIZZ DRINKS???!!!! Personally I probably drank more jugger-nogs than nuka-cola's for that matter. And Speed cola was an essential in call of the dead!

    If you are a fan of "How I met Your Mother" you might remember an episode where Barney wanted Marshall to fire a guy because Barney found him annoying. Marshall relented and fired the guy. The guy was OK with it because he said it would give him time to work on his real passion, craft beers. A short time later the fired employee came back to be rehired but he had clear bottles with yellow liquid in them. Come to find out the mans name was Peter Wasserman and had brewed his best beer yet, and thought he names it after himself. The beer's name? You got it "Pisswasser". Instead of explaining to the guy what Pisswasser meant, Marshall opened. Beer, took a big drink and said, "I can't hire you back, this is the best Pisswasser I've ever had! Go out into the world and sell your Pisswasser to everyone!" Even the bar they hung at had a Pisswasser sign at the end of the bar. Maybe this guy went on to make his fortune all over the GTA universe with his "Pisswasser" beer!

    What about Virility from DMC?
  • JachAnen - January 31, 2014 12:21 a.m.

    tw@ is not sexual unless YOU want it to be. It actually means the more logical "twat", that's what they were going for, although it does have other meaning in the real world too which the article was hinting at, but it makes less sense and again wasn't what they were going for when they started it in GTAIII.
  • jozef420 - March 17, 2014 4:48 p.m.

    what exactly do you mean the more logical "twat"? the @ symbol doesn't really have a name even, it's just referred to as the "at sign". They either meant it sexually or the British derogatory slang. i think the sexual innuendo is probably more accurate, based on their style.
  • Smoky_the_Bear - August 7, 2014 6:17 p.m.

    I'd disagree to be honest. I think it is meant in the derogatory slang way. It's a dig at pretentious "trendy" coffee shops/internet cafes and the equally pretentious hipsters who sit around them all day with their laptops thinking they are cool. It's calling them a bunch of twats essentially.
