FORUM GAME: Guess That Game!

MikeBMikeB MMORPG.com Community ManagerQueens, NYPosts: 5,724Administrator Uncommon

Hi guys,

I just read this thread over in General Gaming and got an idea for an on-going forum game we can play here. It's pretty simple. One user thinks of a game and provides a number of clues, and the first person to guess the game correctly then does the same, and on and on we go! :) It can be a game from any genre or any platform and from any date, but it has to be a video game.

Sound fun? I'll start with something simple to get the ball rolling.

The setting for is a fantasy world beloved by gamers old and new. This particular entry in the long-running series concerns a young elven boy who follows his uncle through a rainstorm one night, only to get caught up in an adventure to save the land's princess from an evil wizard.

Could I be more obvious? Probably, but I just wanted to get the ball rolling. :)

EDIT: It's the responsibility of the person giving the clues to call out the first correct answer and pass the torch over to them before clues for the next game are offered.

e.g. "Bob is correct! Your turn, Bob!"

    I think it's more that this (the Off-Topic forum) is where we come when we prefer not to talk about games on this site. Oh, and the answer is the left handed Link in the Legend of Zelda series. "WTF do you mean she's not in this castle!?! How many damned castles do you have!?!"

    You'll need to come up with the specific game name. ;)  I'll move this to General Gaming to see if we get more bites!

    I have an old game we use to play on the Commadore 64.   There was a temple complex you would explore looking for loots and the inhabitants were mostly ants and bugs.  What game was it?

    Oh wait, you were trying to answer MikeB's "guess what game".  :(  Sorry.    I thought the other poster called it all ready.  Maybe we can start this whole thread again...how about it MikeB.  This sounds fun.   Have a meeting I need to go to, so I'll get back to this thread later.

    Correct! Your turn. :)

    So now Sepulcher gives you all clues to a game and is responsible for calling out the correct guesser to continue!

    I will keep mine short and sweet:

    In a land of right angles one square rises to the challenge slaying dragons, lifting bridges, unlocking doors with giant keys, and getting the chalice from the castle.

    even though I really have no clue, I'm going to guess World of Warcraft

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    To keep the thread moving Ill post mine before bed:

     

    The story of a blue ball determined to rescue the pink ball of his dreams no matter how many harmless snakes he must pass and no matter how many tower floors he must ascend

  • teakboisteakbois Parlin, NJPosts: 2,154Member

    That is Adventures of Lolo, or so I am pretty sure it is. Since the thread has gone kind of cold I am going to press forward on the being right assumption, hope you dont mind.

     

    Using deception is the whole basis of this game. Abducted at youth, and grown to fend off all sorts of invaders. Trick your opponents into their doom. There are so many possibilities! Possibly one of the best games of the millennia for the forward thinking gamer. You would have to be a bunch of loons to not like this game. Give it a try, you might find yourself happily snared.

    You are correct, and I know yours but I wont say it.  Twisted, awesome series of games.

    Heres one that I don't think anyone will get:

    A free sidescroller where almost everyone chooses the dreadlocks + dogtags in character creation because they just look so cool as they flip and turn in all directions as you launch across the screen, bunny hopping and using your jet-pack shoes towards the enemy teams flag.  /smoke
