Usually scrapers can be modified with new patterns/expressions, maybe that is a more efficient way to do it?

Not really. There's no way to extrapolate the real names from the cut down versions used here, either because it's impossible to correctly recreate the spaces (you could try putting spaces before each capital letter, but then anything with initials in the title won't work) or because other names are simply missing a large portion of the name, e.g. "MonkeyIsland" should be "The Secret of Monkey Island".

In short, no, there's no way of automatedly fixing the names. I tried which got me a lot of the way there, but it still required a large amount of manual edits. Without the correct name, you're going to be taking too much of a liberty when it comes to matching names.

It's done now anyway, so it's somewhat moot.
