View Full Version : Name that Game

This game is simple, but I have done my best to make it excruciatingly complex.

There are 25 screenshots from LucasArts adventure games below - All you have to do is name what game they come from, and give a brief description of the location of the screenshot. You get a point for giving the game, and a point for giving the location.

However, there maybe a few Non-LucasArts titles down there - you'll get a point for spotting the frauds, and a point for naming them.

Oh, and to make things extra wrong, you get a point taken away for every incorrect answer. ;D (Apparently it's too hard)

The winner shall receive as many points as I can muster from Jake or Met (hint: 1,000,000¬), as well as the pride that comes with knowing you're better than everybody else.

Okay, PM me the answers now (http://www.lucasforums.com/private.php?s=&action=newmessage&userid=12423), stop messaging me when Saturday turns into Sunday.

What a great game! I was pretty sure for most, but a few had me totally stumped.

This reminds me of "Spot the Shot" in Amiga Format. I was rubbish at that, too.

Yes! thats exactly what I thought when I saw the game too.

Ok! Submitted my answers... DAMN, that's tough! :(

I'm sure some of them are from non-LA games, but I guess I'll just have to see!

So how'd we do?

scabb

And the winner is...

RemiO! ;D

The results are as follows:

1. RemiO: 40/50 = 80%
2. Thunderpeel: 38/50 = 76%
3. LucasTones: 31/50 = 62%
4. bgbennyboy: 29/50 = 58%
4. Boojaka: 29/50 = 58%
5. Carl Shutt: 20/50 = 40%
5. Andi Wan: 20/50 = 40%
6. Alien426: 19/50 = 38%
7. Mort-Hog: 7/50 = 14%
8. Spaff: 0/50 = 0%


If anybody is curious as to what a particular screenshot was, then I have a list of answers that I don't really feel like posting (Because I may have marked one or two a tiny bit incorrectly, and I'll get picked on, and also because I enjoy being a bastard of sorts) - so just ask! Sadly, I don't have screenshots, but I may be able to get them.

Cuss all of you who didn't enter, particularly Huz.

Oh, The non-LEC were 17 (The Longest Journey) and 18 (Broken Sword).

Bonus fun - 25 is from the concept art. (or so I think ¬)

elTee
06-15-2003, 11:36 PM
It isn't. Well, I mean, it might be. But I haven't seen the concept art and I got that one, its definately in the game.

scabb
06-16-2003, 11:40 AM
It's not from the concept art, I took the screenshot myself :~

And Thunderpeel is right (¬). That is actually outside Snuckeys. So many people put Outside Sam & Max's place that my fragile brain got broken somehow :~~

Also, I did PM the answers to anyone who really wanted them, but I also asked those people not to post them up ¬

And #15 is from the 256 colour version of Zak.

Andi Wan
06-16-2003, 02:33 PM
Dammit. I second guessed myself on a couple of questions and got them wrong (like 3). Oh well, I had no hope any way.

Congrats Remi. You officially spend too much time playing computer games:D .

MrManager
06-16-2003, 02:42 PM

Since RemiO is the winner, I propose that you all donate your points to Thrik (http://www.lucasforums.com/store.php?action=donatemoney&donateusername=Thrik), so we can participate in immature threads like this one (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=102086).

Thrik
06-17-2003, 02:07 PM
Hehehehehe.

Don't worry everyone, I will keep your credits nice and safe. I took a vow to never spend a single credit again, and I intend to keep it. :D

Before you employ this policy, you should change your name to Scrooge McThrik, or similarly amusing name.

Then you can spend the rest of your days swimming in your piles upon piles of credits!

But Thrik needs more credits though people. Go to your stores!

Please donate, and make a difference in the life of a fellow poster less fortunate that yourself.

ThunderPeel2001

I felt so guilty having so many points when people like Thrik suffer, so I donated them all to him. I suggest you other sinners stop living in shame and do the same, it's the only way to save your souls!

PS - We should start a similar thread in another forum, since everyone here already knows the 'joke' ;)

There was one here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=102086) but it got all closed and split up because we're all immature and stuff.

But check here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=1192993#post1192993) ;-

It's only a matter of time before they catch on..

This whole thing reminds me of the time Sheaday6 and I tried to invade the Galactic Battlegrounds Forums, we just wanted to have some fun, and were shunned for it, except by our fellows in the Sam and Max boards who were behind us the whole time.

Also, does Thrik have a goal in number of points? I think 1,000,000,000,000,000 is a good start personally.

and youll be shunned again.

what the h3ll is wrong with you people giving your money to a worthless brat like thrik who doesnt even use them! other people need it more than him.

I would argue that nobody needs them at all.

better?

The verbalization is better, but you can't convince us of the need for a glowy name or one of those damn sig pics. They are annoying.

I enjoyed shunning you. :)
It'd be my pleasure to do it again...no charge ;)

BTW, I marked that down in my WTF journal...it's one of the more memorable parts. :D

woops...seems this thread was closed...ah well...routine accident
