I'm not sure I understand why Fake 64 should qualify as a concept. Yes, people commonly refer to the N64 Superman and Castlevania games as Superman 64 and Castlevania 64, but such a colloquialism isn't really worth a concept, is it? And I never hear anyone refer to Ocarina of Time (the only other game attached to the concept) referred to as Zelda 64. What this concept is saying is basically just, "Yo, sometimes people call these games _______ 64 even though 64 isn't in their names," which seems like a really flimsy argument for a page.

It's easily verifiable, though, and does occur in some games. It may not be a lot, but there are concepts with less games attached to them than this.

Agree with Hailinel. This is one of the dumber made-up concepts I've seen. Delete.

That doesn't make it a good concept.

I have never heard about Ocarina of Time 64, Zelda 64 or Castlevania 64. I have heard about Superman 64 though. The games already seem to have those as aliases though.

Is there a similar concept for adding a "One" to the name of the first game as soon as a sequel is released, even though there's no confusion since the other game is called 2 or something else?

I don't think it's necessary to keep it seeing as how we already have a thing for "this game is being called/culturally known as something else" in Aliases.

Zelda 64 was what you called OoT before it got its subtitle. But that's why it's an alias on the OoT page. This is a really dumb concept with absolutely no use to anyone.

I say kill it with fire.

Stupid concept. Someone at some point has probably done this for every franchise that has had an appearance on the Nintendo 64. How do you judge the popularity required for attachment on the page? If it really is commonly referred to Something 64, that's an argument for an alais, not a concept.

Agreed. A common mistake is not a concept.
