I'll Name That Game In 5! (Part 3: Electric Boogaloo)

Post by Alex79uk »

Good morning! I'm bored. Ages ago I made up a game where we had to describe a game in five words and other people worked out what it was. It seemed fun. Then, less ages ago, we played it again. We'll, it's back.

There are rules. You have to have rules. And what are rules made to be? Not broken.

- Clues use five words. Not four. Not six. Five.
- Please post your answers with spoiler tags
- Games can be from any system, any time, ever. If it's a computer game, it's fair game.
- You may not use any word from the games title, nor any character/location name from the game.


Here are ten to start you off:

1. Like Twin Peaks: The Game.

2. Unfairly dismissed as spreadsheet simulator.

3. Investigate non linear video interview.

4. Passport? Socks? Watch? Let's go!

5. Twisting, turning, vanishing. Many people!

6. A flattened mascot taking turns.

7. Nocturnal hero, one crazy night!

8. Plod around investigating. Or don't!

9. Square beats circle beats angles.

10. It's my favorite game ever!

OK, so number 10 is a bullshit clue and totally unfair. But tough luck :lol:

Come on then!

Haha. All except one correct so far, Ksub. The Nocturnal hero one. Although you might still be technically correct, I'll have to look it up! (But it's not the specific one I was thinking of...)

Just looked at Ksub’s answers and see I’ve got some of them right and some wrong.

Had no idea on the last one!

Absolutely love this Alex.

OK, so, regarding my clue #7, Nocturnal hero, one crazy night. It seems, although I can't be 100% sure, that all the games in this series take place over one night. (Despite the fact I put almost 80 hours in to the last one haha) so I'll have to take any from that series as a correct answer. (But I was thinking of the third one - the one most recently covered by CaR).

You got 5, 8, 9 and 10 wrong. Although you gave a correct answer for 8, but for a different answer! :lol:

Number 4 correct answer was your second guess.

Yeah Ksub got number 10 correct. Nobody has number 5 yet.

If I changed the last word, I think you'd get it straight away. It's only a slight change...

5. Twisting, turning, vanishing. Many players!

I can't think of one, my minds dry, it's spinning on empty. It's too much pressure. I'll catch myself off guard and think of one when I'm not expecting it.

Hang on.
