I'll Name That Game In Five! (The Return!)

Post by Alex79uk »

Hello! I was just searching for something and stumbled upon a thread I made several years ago. The game is that I will describe or give a clue for several games using exactly five words, and you have to guess what they are. It's a good game, ok!? When they've all been got, someone else can have a go at setting ten more games. Join in, it'll be fun!

But you can't have fun without rules. So here they are.

- 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.


That's all! So, your starter for ten. Some are harder than others...

1. Grotesque baby shoots deadly tears

2. Gathering party before venturing north

3. Multicoloured arcs? Platforms and weapons!

4. Mud. Grime. Grit. Gravel. Quadrupled!

5. Foggy, unnerving survival horror classic

6. Remove doors! Watch them starve...

7. 3D Metroidvania. Swipe those limbs!

8. Neon drenched, violent murder simulator.

9. Robert Louis Stevenson's favourite breakfast?

10. Wobbly walker, but climbing? Excellent!

OK so there you go, some are really easy, none are too hard.

1, Binding of Isaac? I've never actually played it though so I'm probably off.

2, Baldurs Gate 1/2

6, The Sims

8, Hotline Miami?

9. Robert Louis Stevenson's favourite breakfast?

The Secret of Monkey-Bread Island?

I looked up a link for 50 Best Breakfasts and Monkey Bread was the first recipe, I kid you not. I don't even know what it is.
I'm intrigued to see the answer to this one.
