Mario Cart 2
The name doesn't make sense but not in the way you think. Mario is in a trolley because they're called shopping carts in America. Mario Cart 2. You see? But then the '2' implies that there's an original and from what we can tell… nope. No Mario Cart exists. So erm. What?

Doctris because it's a combination of doctor and Tetris. Nothing to do with Dr. Mario though. Nope. Who is that guy anyway.
