Title: Song Title Meaning
Post by: Meztli72 on June 12, 2014, 23:05:17
Please help me to find the meaning of this song title: the module is made by Lateq and the title is "GG Micoser \o/"... is it a Finnish programmers/developers/computer company?  :)

Looks like a small local computer shop. My guess is lateq experienced some fuck-up on their part and vented with a happy song sarcastically thanking them for a good game. Or it was the opposite and he was genuinely happy but you know, Finns.

Thank you very much for the clarification! ^^

Sorry, I didn't realize Lateq's website, because the last time I saw his profile there wasn't any website link yet :)

I mean his profile page (the website link is dead anyway). This is one of the things the shout wall is useful for, after all.

So GG=Good Game??? If true, that's kinda cool ^^

Erm... I searched the Internet and I can guess that probably GG in the songtitle means "get good" as a sarcasm instead of "good game" for online competitive sports gaming ^^ Thanks for the help!  :)

Again, I don't have facts but that sounds unlikely. GG as in "good game" definitely came from online gaming but in some circles it became a meme and crossed over to other activities and social interaction where it was mainly used sarcastically, roughly around the time the mod was uploaded to TMA.

So the songtitle remains a bit mysterious... cool fact ^^

Yeah, it will remain "mystery" if you don't ask the author directly.  But then again, why would it matter anyway?  If someone was to ask me where my song titles come from or why I gave a particular name to a specific module, the answer would be "it's completely random and has no specific meaning" in almost all cases.
