Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

This month we have some video game titles. The problem is, someone took all of them and opened up a thesaurus before sending me the list. Your task is to figure out what they are! Remember that a thesaurus gives you both synonyms and antonyms. :P

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's prize is sponsored by me.

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "September Competition Entry"

Make sure to number your guesses, and submit them in the following format;
1) Game – System
2) Game – System
3) Game – System

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive three points for guessing the correct game and 2 points for naming the correct system that the game was originally released on. If the game was released on multiple platforms, then any of them will work.

Prizes are:
1st Place: One $20 Gift Card (Your Choice) or 40 karma
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

The exception to the above is the $20 prize, if you win this prize, you will not receive the Karma prize.

The order is unchanged.

There is only one with a different word count. Number 11.

All based on US names.

Thanks for the information. Another question: do the plural/singular words have to be kept plural/singular in the correct name too? Because there is one entry that I think I got, but the second word in your list is plural while in the game I have in mind it is singular.

Btw, one big problem that I have noticed and wanted to report is that, on thesaurus.com, there are some words where the word you want doesn't appear in the list of words when you enter the word that was provided. If you somehow figured it out and entered it, the word that was provided does appear, but not the other way around. There are complete game names where not a single word you want appeared when you entered the words provided. I can provide some examples via PM if you want.
