The Monkey Island abbreviations

posted by Victory63 on - last edited - Viewed by 473 users
Knights of the Old Republic have them, Vampire the Masquerade have them and now Monkey Island have them. Well technically they've had them for a long time though people haven't used them much ...... UNTIL NOW!
Here they are:
SMI - The Secret of Monkey Island
MI2 - Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge (gives that Terminator feeling T2 lol)
CMI - The Curse of Monkey Island
EMI - Escape from Monkey Island
ToMI - Tales of Monkey Island (pronounced Tommy lol)

and my favourite:
SMISE - The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition

So now that you know the abbreviations for each, use them alot in chat and on here but use them wisely my padawans lol.
Beat that KoTOR, VTMB, COD and WOW. Feel the might of SMISE.

So spread the word of these abbreviations to all Monkey Island communities and what not.

  • Why is ToMI not TMI if CoMI is CMI?

    (that question DID make sense...)

    It's definitely TMI to me even if that could mean "too much information". Blame Curse's THX parody for that.

    And SMISE should be SMI:SE in my opinion (IMO)

    SMI
    SMI:SE
    MI2
    CMI
    EMI
    TMI
  • I just call them Secret, Secret SE, Revenge, Curse, Escape and Tales. Longer but more natural :D
  • Yeah, I sometimes call CMI, Curse and TMI, Tales. Not really sure what I call the other ones in that format XD
  • Didn't Dave Grossman said it was funnier to abbreviate CMI with "COMI"?
  • I know it's funnier to abbreviate Tales as TMI.
  • As long as you don't abbreviate the fourth game as EFMI. One time, my friend asked me what game I was playing, to which I replied "Eff me". He gave me this bewildered look until I had realized what I'd said.
  • I still call SMI, mi1.

    MI2
    CMI
    EMI
    TMI
    Call it whatever you want. The fact is to abbreviate it.

    Yeah, they have. SMI / MI1, MI2, CMI and EMI are well established abbreviations for the MI games.

    Why would you ommit the "o" in SMI and CMI and the "f" in EMI, while keeping the "o" in TMI?

    Well it's better ToMI than TMI since ToMI comes out as "Tommy" which is pretty nifty. Like with The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition is SMISE which sounds like some tight rich dude lol.
