Should this game've been called Ms.Pac-Man Championship Edition?

I don't know how to make polls!

Do people really have that big of an affinity for Ms. Pacman? I think the title is fine as it is.

I always referred to both games as Pac-Man so there's no love lost on my end.  In fact, I think adding in Ms sounds hokey.  The name is already long enough imo.

Ms. Pac-Man wasn't an official Namco product. Ms. Pac-Man was a rip off by Midway. Midway later gave the Ms. Pac-Man brand to Namco because they were afraid of a lawsuit, but she's still not an original Namco creation, and she still feels really out of place when used by Namco. So no, it shouldn't have been.

Wouldn't the idea of a huge chain of ghosts chasing Ms. Pac Man be far more... rapey?

Cos Ms. Pac-Man was a weird upgrade / modification on the first game, which is exactly what this is.
