    The Game Screenshot Challenge

    No idea if it'll actually work in here but the other versions have been popular, so why not try.

    This operates on the same principle as the album cover challenge and the movie poster challenge in the other parts of the board. There are 9 different game screenshots represented in the image below, each numbered - from top left (1) to bottom right (9). You just have to guess the game. It's no more complicated than that. Setter's word goes in the event of a dispute. Whomever gets the most right sets the next challenge.



    1. Perfect Dark (Gooner)
    2. Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Gooner)
    3. WWF Super Wrestlemania (Gooner)
    4. Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back (Gooner)
    5. Street Fighter 2 (Degenerate)
    6. Civilization III (Degenerate)
    7. Super Mario Bros. 2 (Degenerate)
    8. Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (Gooner)
    9. ISS Pro Evolution Soccer 2 (Pringle)

    Yes!! I had a thought of bringing it to the Games forum, but forgot. Let's see.... I'm assuming you need the exact version (i.e. as an example, GTA = wrong, GTA: Vice City = right?).


    1. Perfect Dark
    3. WWF Super WrestleMania??
    4. Crash Bandicoot

    Recognise them all to be fair, but the versions will make this tricky I think

    That's how I was thinking of doing it, yes. I figure having to be exact takes the game from a bit too easy to quite challenging. But it's also always at the discretion of whoever sets the challenge.

    That's 2/3, by the way.

    Gotcha.

    In that case... 4. Crash Bandicoot 2

    In the interest of fairness, probably best to only allow one guess at a time for games with sequels.

    Oh yeah. I mean I think no one has been accepting answers if people make more than one guess in a post anyway. If you tried to hedge it by saying 'Well it's Sonic. Or Sonic 2, Or 3.' then I know I wouldn't give it to you.

    I can't confirm or deny whether that's the right answer until I get a full title....

    I think #9 is the greatest football console game ever made, ISS Pro Evolution 2?

    I think #5 is the Ken Stage of Street Fighter 2?

    #7 is Super Mario Bros. 2 / Doki Doki Panic.

    Ah, I think I recognize #6 now after looking at this again although I might get the version wrong - is it from Civ III?

    Correct - two chances left to win it, and the score is tied.

    I think I know 2 now. Alex Kidd in Miracle World? Think it came out on the Sega Master System

    Correct - so unless Degenerate can get number 8 Gooner wins the first one.

    I'll take a stab at 8 too, though I'm not entirely confident.

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

    OK here we go. Hope it's not too difficult or easy. There is a theme, which is in a way the same theme as the one I'm currently running in the movie thread. I will need the full title for it to be classed as correct. (i.e. for example, Mario Galaxy is not the correct answer for a screenshot of Super Mario Galaxy)

    1 Silent Hill 1 - Degenerate
    2 Pandemonium! - Wilkimania
    3 International Track and Field - Wilkimania
    4 Driv3r - Sean
    5 Enter the Matrix - Sean
    6 Resident Evil: Code Veronica - Sean
    7 Motorstorm - Wilkimania
    8 Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag - Sean
    9 Ninja Gaiden 3 - Sean

    Apologies for the double post, but think it may be time for some clues:

    Theme - each row has it's own mini theme, with all nine sharing a bigger main theme.

    1 - A 90s classic that spawned several sequels in the horror genre.
    4 - A dumbed down version of GTA, this game tanked when it came out and largely ruined the franchise.
    5 - The game takes place in the middle of a blockbuster movie that made a huge impression in the mid 00s, therefore providing further insight into the universe that it created.
    6 - A side-sequel of another horror franchise that has spawned dozens of games of varying quality and a fairly long film franchise of dubious quality.
    8 - Perfected the art of ship battles perhaps more than ever before, at least on home consoles.
    9 - Critically acclaimed game known for it's difficulty and gore, where you portray Ryu, but not the one you might be thinking of.

    My guesses, might have the versions all wrong since I didn't pay much attention to gaming during the time of most of these games:

    1) Silent Hill 1
    6) Resident Evil 2
    9) Ninja Gaiden Black

    The others look vaguely familiar - I'll have to come back to this thread and check those out again.

    Degenerate - Silent Hill is correct, but the other two aren't. Same as before, right franchises but not the correct versions

    Sean - 3 for 3.

    Maybe the theme (themes?) are a little more apparent now?

    Sorry, it's not Sigma. At the risk of giving it away... you were closer with Ninja Gaiden 2...

    Correct

    Seeing as we're one away; each row has games released on the same console (not necessarily exclusive to that console though). Row 1 - PS1, Row 2 - PS2 and Row 3 - PS3.

    Yeah I'll give it to you, Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag.

    Not sure if anyone noticed, but the second part of the theme has been revealed. First letter of each game points to an upcoming PS4 game. This knowledge will prove useful for the movie challenge I'm running at the moment (wink wink!).

    Sean you're up!

    I'm rocking a Chromebook, which doesn't allow me to use graphic making programs. Unless there's a super special way to do so, that I have yet to find, haha.

    So, I'll take the victory and let you choose the next person to make the next set!

    In that case perhaps the second placed Wilkimania?

    I won't have much time to create anything for this so feel free to pick up on it, Gooner. I'll make one down the road, eventually.
