Rules

1. The game MUST be a Live-enabled game (i.e. can be found on TrueAchievements).

2. Any image used must be hosted on an image-sharing website (e.g. http://imgur.com/).

3. After guessing right once, allow at least one other person to win before guessing again (unless everyone is still stuck after 2 days).

Guidelines

Any image used should either be a screenshot or a clue depicting the game.

Try not to post anything that may be a spoiler. This is especially important for newer games.


Original Post:

Simple premise - post a clue to a game and the person who guesses it correctly goes next.

Screenshots are the norm, but if you feel like linking to a piece of music or writing a synopsis or what-have-you, feel free - as long as it's getable!

Try to avoid major spoilers (e.g. by posting a picture of the final boss when it's a character who used to be an ally.)

If you're 100% sure you're right then post your clue to the next game, otherwise wait for confirmation by the original poster. Beware of series' as a particular entry may be required (e.g. a specific Tomb Raider game.)

Be sure to hide game names on any links, by renaming files, etc.

Normal protocol is that after you have posted a clue and it has been guessed you don't immediately win the next round, to give everyone a fair shout, and you only take one guess at each go between other people having a stab.

Alright onwards - fairly easy one to begin with:

Oh, that's http://www.trueachievements.com/ENSLAVED/achievements.htm

I'm going to wait, even though I know it's right. With a reply, this board should gain traction.

I'm gonna say that is one of the Call of Duty games. Though since i've never played any of them (except the ones on PS2), i'm gonna say that one is Call of Duty World at War.

EDIT: Also for the rules for this game. Or we limiting ourselves to 360 games or is it any game, on any console, from any generation, and from any region?

Yeah, it's W@W.

I too was wondering if we could post other games, but let's wait for this thread to get more activity before we do that.

Anyway, it's your turn.

Yeah, I guess stick with 360 games for the time being. See what the general consensus is if the thread gets rolling.

If it does I'll also add the rule about not taking a go straight after putting one up yourself, to give everyone a chance.

See how we go, though!

Ooooh, cool! I'll get some stuff ready for if I ever win. And to me, it would seem like a cool idea to add some retro stuff smile

Posting to keep an eye on the thread may be a bit easier then say the screenshot thread.

Is that how you play these games?! Man you're organised! I play, and then when I win I run around frantically trying to find one!

Wow really, and that was just a guess. Anyway, here is a new one:

And as far as retro games going, technically XBLA would be 360 games. And their are quite a few retro titles there.

Crap if it was DOS based games, I think their are only a small few of us that would be able to identify them, seeing as the majority of them were all text based games, and no actual visual images. If you were to post a screenshot of Wizard's Castle and more then 3 people were able to identify it, I would be surprised. Damn I feel old knowing that my first computer was a Tandy 286.

OT: I know I've taken him down, and I recognise the arena. Lost Odyssey?

DOS text based? I think all those Lucasarts point n click games would count as DOS, and pac-man, and Tom & Jerry Cat-astrophe, and Missile Command, and Asteroids...

Yes Ojotango, you are right. It was indeed Lost Odyssey. Its the first actual boss you fight in the game. You're up.

I'll try the image again later.

Hmm... first time I tried it said the site was doing maintenance... now it loads again, though, so give it another go.
