I feel like this an issue with many modern games that have a more realistic look... it doesn't stand out and is harder to tell apart. There's not much UI this time either (apart from 4, 7 and 10...) that might have helped otherwise. Let's see what you can do this month, and I promise a return to Retro and Pixels for June.(...) the shots often don't give much for hints on stuff to search by it kind of falls into either "you know it or you don't" territory.
Glad to hear it! The first dozen player entries tell me this round is more difficult that the Veggies.This might be an easy month for me. Got 23 so far!
Funny enough I tend to prefer more polygonal and modern games in your quizzes just because I usually do better there. But since this one has no genre theme, and a bunch of characters kind of just blend together, many of them just go into a generic "fit white male" sort of bucket in my head. Like I'm sure I've played or seen #11 but that dude is giving me nothing in my brain to remember who he is or what game it's from. But I'm sure once I see the answer I'll think "Oh yeah, of course". But also it gives me nothing to try to Google. "White man end boss" is too many games!I feel like this an issue with many modern games that have a more realistic look... it doesn't stand out and is harder to tell apart.

Every point count! It'll help put MC among the top-scorers at the end of the year. So yeah, the more participants we have every quiz, the better.I think I'll continue carrying the banner of least points once again.
It's because that's like the least Cyberpunk looking shot you can find. It's in daytime (which is anti-Cyberpunk settings), looks like a regular wooden slatted house or whatever behind the fellow with nothing really "future" in his surroundings, the tattoos don't look sci-fi and would fit some trashy character from a GTA game, and even when zoomed in it's just confusing what's on his face. I assumed it was just some sort of wrestler mask sort of thing that I wasn't understanding. It honestly just didn't make any sense to look at his face. And the guy isn't some main character that's been in marketing or anything that I recognize.But I have to ask you a question: Why was "Cyberpunk 2077" so hard to guess? Less than half got it right, even though I gave several hints about it (AAA, open world, this decade, first-person perspective, lots of press). Also the picture shows the implants on the arms and the "facial stumps" which I only know from Cyberpunk. How come I have misjudged this so much?
Many people wrote lengthy explanations, but I like this one the most. Thank you!It's because that's like the least Cyberpunk looking shot you can find.
No, number 17 only had their answer pic changed - I wanted to show the player character of that GTA DLC to make it easier to connect.Both 17 and 18 had their pics changed, right?
Number 18 changed? Didn't it always show a half naked dude with red shorts from the early hitman games?Didn't 18 show that CIA agent that 47 keeps rescuing in each game?

He explained it before in here when someone asked and I know I always think it has to do the timing of when the response was sent in. But for some reason I thought there was an alternate way of slight score differences (like teeny fractions of a point are added for exact answers vs just getting the series?). Mostly I think it just means you submitted yours right before I did.Lol, curious to know how I ended up getting that 0.0007 score.
Better luck next time, Wibble.

Yes, the timestamp theory was true for the first few seasons, that's probably why it is such a persistant misconception today.He explained it before in here when someone asked and I know I always think it has to do the timing of when the response was sent in.
Ahem, if my work didn't have frequent long gaps of waiting for coworkers, you wouldn't get the quiz results on the 1st or 2nd each month. Luckily shuffling numbers in excel looks the same for every industry - or hobby.(...) and since I was doing this quiz while working (don't tell anyone!)
I don't remember if I've ever drawn a really big map, but La-Mulana 2 is probably the last time I mapped stuff out in a more serious manner.Well, when was the last time you drew a map yourself in a video game? I think my last really big dungeon map was in the RPG Ishar 2 in the 90s, in my old math exercise book... after that, small stuff at most.
