The Cryptic Name The Game Quiz

Ok, I thought it would be fun to have a video game related quiz.

To keep the game free-flowing, anyone can post one or more questions at any time.
Likewise, anyone can answer any previous question that hasn't already been answered.
When a question is answered correctly, the original poster of the question edits there post and turns it red and writes the first person who got it right under it. (so that people can quickly scan to see what ones have/havnt been answered)

The clues can be anything you want,allthough they have to be numbered after the last question so people can say what question they are answering.

Short cyptic clues are the most fun imo;


For instance an example question post could be;

0. "Ministry of Silly Walks approved"

And answer post;

Answer for question #0 is "Little Big Adventure"


(each clue refers to a different game)

I hope I have been clear, it will get more obvious as we play.
Perhapes see who can get the most right answers by June7th


jump start to the current questions >>

So heres the starting questions;

1. Groundhog 3 Days
*****Assassin gets a point!*****


2. Because Always Summer Days just wouldn't have as sounded cool.
****Ricochet gets a point!*****


3. Marcus Brigstocke used this game as an example as why children arnt affected by video games.
******El_Muerte gets a point!*****


4. What game of the last 5 years ends with the same sentence as it starts with?


(and new questions posted will be numbered onwards from 4, obviously)

Not that I understand this, at all, but normal members (not mods/admins) can't do:

I don't understand why "Ministry of Silly Walks approved" is LBA, maybe I misunderstood something though. This seems like a fun game though, once I know what's going on!

2 = Neverwinter Nights. I believe.

Well, not if they leave it too long, but I hope the game moves quicker then that.

Yup, Correct

Ministry of Silly Walks is a monty python reference, and LBA does have a lot of silly walks in it.

Well, I was trying to emphasise the crypticness, but maybe that was too lose.

Anyway, heres some more.

5. In this game, you get rewarded for serving evil well by getting tattoo's.

6. The perfect game for people with exactly a 5 second attention span.
*** Assassin gets another point!! ***

7. "Many moons have passed since the ___ went to war. Onwards and upwards. Bigger weapons then before"
*** El_Muerte gets another point!!! *****
