"Future Soldier" sounds really dumb

Is it just me, or is "Future Soldier" a really dumb name? It's 2010, y'all. "Future Soldier" sounds like an 80's NES game.

Right you are. Especially for a game already taking place in the future (In past iterations).

I dont see your point, H.A.W.X. has an 'X' in it so it is both awesome and extreme ! 
But yes it seems the people at Ubisoft have a problem giving their games good names... *cough* R.U.S.E.

Does what it says on the tin, it's a good name.
 
Saying that, GRAW was set in the mid 10's so really that's the future.

There's so many dumb names in video games, I don't find it worth pointing out anymore.

Everytime I see Future Soldier I think of this

You'll get used to it, just like 'Modern Warfare'.
 
'Ghost Recon' is still a great title on its own.  All of this near-future stuff is garbage anyway.

What happens if they make Future Warfare? 
 
Yeah I would rather have them name it "Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 3" than "Future Soldier" sounds like a name that would be used on an 8-bit game.

Should have been Future Soldier X, right?

To think this game was actually ghost recon. Ubisoft really fucked this series up,same with Rainbow Six. Theres like no good tactical shooters anymore.,or am I just not looking hard enough.

Glad someone else understands. And to think I has some sliver of hope for this game.  
 
Guess I'll keep playing Ghost Recon 1.

Dude are you kidding me? GRAW 1-2 are amazing tactical games. and Rainbow 6 Vegas 1-2 are also really really good.

I agree, GRAW 1/2 are both very, very tactical. Rainbow Six is good, but I prefered RS3 and Black Arrow.

It could be worse hopefully the characters are not as dry as the previous games
