Default "Guess the Games" Contest

Hi all,

There is a contest going on now at Techgage, where you have to guess as many games out of the 20 given. So far there is -little- reaction, since most people have only been able to guess 2 or 3. So, if you are an old school gamer or are a self-appointed game guru, it should be rather easy for you.

http://forums.techgage.com/showthread.php?t=1544

Up for grabs is a 2GB kit of OCZ Flex XLC ram.

If you can't guess many yourself, get friends/family to help!

All over that sheeeeat!

Well- I was just there and I can tell you now that It's not going to be ol' Babrbarossa that wins the RAM- I'm not the biggest gamer for sure, but I'm flabbergasted as to how few I recognise, and even then, I'm not sure about the name. I'll bet sswilson knows a bunch of 'em.

Bump for those interested. I've added a new contest, but it may not apply to everyone here. It's tentatively called the "Ugliest Case" contest ;-)

Heh.... I'm not that big of a gamer either. :)

I tend to find one or two games I like and then play them to death for a year or so.... :)

The cga one is driving me nuts though (The one with the "wilderness" descriptor on the bottom). I'm sure I played it, but it's probably on a slightly different platform.

I was expecting to see some balder's gate/wizardry/might and magic shots.... :)

1st row, 3rd from the left: Descent
2nd row 1st on left: Top Gear 2 (I think)
2nd row 2nd from the left: Kings Quest
3rd row, on the right: SimCity 2000 (can't wait for the next one to come out)
4th Row, on the right: Syndicate Wars

That's what I've got so far.

I'm a MASSIVE fan of the series. I even parted with $150 two years ago just to get my hands on a sealed copy of Freespace 2 off of Ebay. Worth every penny....

I played with the demo when it first came out.

The full 3D range of movement was making some folks queezy, just imagine what it would be like on a 3 monitor "surround" setup. :)

I don't know many of those games. Apparently one person has guessed all 20 already though.
