FF for Final Fantasy, Fatal Fury, and Final Fight always stands out to me when people want to abbreviate everything. Add Soul Calibur and Starcraft for that matter, since for both series I think SC2 is considered the most popular.
If life was meant to be easy, then everyone would be doing it.

How did you miss Mario Kart for MK?

I dare anyone to find out what I'm talking about when I mention AC.

Ha, glad people are enjoying this. Thanks for the additions.
I used to love Mario Kart. Been so long, I forgot about that.

I don't know who Michael Kors is but I know "mk" is short for "mmkay" too.

I've seen TK used for Tekken and that can also mean "team kill" in squad games.

Not fighting games but SMB for Super Mario Bros/Super Monkey Ball/Super Meat Boy has tripped me up, too.

Edit: P4A was confusing because it could be both Persona 4 Arena -and- Persona 4 Animation, but most people abbreviated it P4U for Persona 4 Ultimate, based on its Japanese name...but then when Persona 4 Ultimax came out, P4U became ambiguous, too.
I solemnly swear that I aim to misbehave.

Add Firefox and Fatal Frame to that.
