My prefix is simple, though often confused,
It's to put down an object; one other than you.
My infix, not truly a word, but is slang,
once seen when teens were late to hang with the gang.
My suffix, spelled stately, means 2000 pounds,
but alternate spellings and meanings abound.
Though many people and places share my whole as a name,
in this case the title points you to a game.

Note: You only need to find the word the riddle refers to; you'll know the game if you get it.
