Description (last modified by aquadran)

I first noticed this a long time ago when adding certain games in ScummVM that they aren't listed by their official names. Note that this report concerns English titles only.

There are several examples, with the most notable ones being the Simon the Sorcerer games.

The first game is listed as "Simon the Sorcerer 1" instead of just Simon the Sorcerer". The second game is listed as "Simon the Sorcerer 2" instead of its official title "Simon the Sorcerer II: The Lion, the Wizard and the Wardrobe"

Then there's the two Sherlock Holmes games, listed as "The Case of the Serrated Scalpel" and "The Case of the Rose Tattoo" respectively. Both should have "The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes:" in front of those titles.

There there's the first enties in Sierra's Quest games with "I" added in, like "Police Quest I: In Pursuit of Death Angel" where the "I" really shouldn't be there.

the affected games seem to be:

Police Quest (AGI), King's Quest (AGI & SCI), Space Quest (AGI & SCI), and Quest for Glory (original & VGA)

Lastly, there's the second Laura Bow games, which is listed as "Laura Bow 2: The Dagger of Amon Ra". Now, I think the official title is just "The Dagger of Amon Ra" so should there be a middle ground as list the game as "Laura Bow: the Dagger of Amon Ra" or something similar?
