While we all know what BFG stands for, I think that "technically" it's Big Fraggin' Gun, as that's the acronym mentioned in the [http://www.gamers.org/docs/FAQ/doomfaq/sect1.html#3-10-1 Official Doom FAQ].  I don't think the term used in an internal design document should be considered the "real" name any more than the Doomguy is named Buddy Dacote or something.

Alternative BFG names

I think with the list of "alternative BFG name expansions" we're in danger of ending up with a list of every single expansion that someone once made up in school one day. It might be a good idea to find citations for the existing expansions to determine their notability. Fraggle 08:14, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

A few are mentioned in the BFG FAQ, although AFAICT the concept there is "here's a few representative examples" and not "we searched Usenet exhaustively and these are the three/four most notable expansions we found".    Ryan W 18:00, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Citations for "homages" section

The wikipedia article creates a bibliography by simply linking to its own articles about the works cited, so I'm not sure we need to do more.  The last item I copied seems to be obscure, however (at least in English-language sources), so here are a few links: [1] [2].    Ryan W 23:34, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Big Fucking Gun

While we all know what BFG stands for, I think that "technically" it's Big Fraggin' Gun, as that's the acronym mentioned in the Official Doom FAQ. I don't think the term used in an internal design document should be considered the "real" name any more than the Doomguy is named Buddy Dacote or something. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.80.164.251 (talkcontribs) .
