The Monkey Island abbreviations

posted by Victory63 on - last edited - Viewed by 472 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.

  • Announcing acronyms for people to use is never going to work unless you have some authority over the title (e.g. if Ron Gilbert declared acronyms for the first two). I'm certainly going to continue using TMI. I think I've been using MI:SE and MI1 too, but I won't necessarily stick with those.
  • What the above poster said! Everyone has their own abbreviations. As long as they're not something stupid like, MILR for MI2, people will understand them. People just need to keep in mind that if they abbreviate something they have to be aware of what the other person might interpret it as!

    Person 1: I like how you have to use the pink frilly pants in MI3D
    Person 2: Pink frilly pants? That is TMI!
    Person 1: But that's what you have to do!
    Person 2: What?
    Person 1: Eh?
    *MAJOR CONFUSION*
  • Yeah. Don't see the point of this. I have to join other people in saying:

    That's cool, that's fine. It's not like I'm shoving it down your throat at gunpoint lol.

    Just that these abbreviations could be used like many POPULAR games have their abbreviations used alot and we want to give the Monkey Island series that full treatment. :D
  • But we HAVE been using these abbreviations for almost 20 years!

    And the Monkey Island games ARE popular, they just haven't been around in a long time. How do you think it managed to take down the Telltale site on release?
