Default The Video "Game"

I created a similar thread on a different forum and it went over very well (although the concept wasn't mine, I just took it and applied it to video games).

It's simple: whoever is the holder of the turn comes up with a video game, then he or she gives out clues until someone correctly guesses the game, at which point that person is now the holder of the turn.

RULES (read and heed)

1. NO CHEATING. The people guessing are not allowed to use google/wiki/the internet or other sources to figure out the game. You must simply go off what you know and what your experience is. This keeps it fair and makes it more fun. So don't cheat; don't be that guy (or gal). Also, no editing posts to try and update your guess. Make your guess and stick to it.

2. ONLY ONE GUESS PER CLUE, PER INDIVIDUAL. What this means is when a clue is given, you are allowed to make one guess only. You can't be like "It's this!" and then in the next post be like "or that!" However, when the next clue is given, you are allowed another (single) guess. So on until the turn changes.

3. NO PORN GAMES. Or really any other super obscure games for that matter. Now, a lot of people know a lot of things about video games on this forum so inevitably some obscure stuff is going to come up, which brings me to the next rule...

4. KEEP THINGS MOVING. Depending on how the turn is going, as the turn-holder, you should probably provide at least a couple clues per day. It is up to the discretion of the turn-holder how many clues he or she will provide, but if things are just standing still, throw out another clue to keep people guessing. Holding onto a turn for three or four days is acceptable, but anything longer than that is starting to stretch it. Which leads right into the next rule...

5. YOU CAN OPEN THINGS TO SEARCHING IF THE TURN IS LASTING TOO LONG. Again, this is up to the discretion of the turn-holder. If you've provided many clues and and you've held onto the turn for many days, and still no one has any idea what you're talking about, then as the turn-holder you are allowed to open it up to internet/outside searching. This is the only time it is acceptable to use outside resources and again, it's up to the turn-holder when or if he or she will allow it. As the overseer, I will kindly suggest it if things have dragged on for too long.

6. NO CHIT CHAT. In order to keep the thread from getting cluttered, keep chit chat and conversation out of it. Now, of course you can elaborate on your guess, explain your clue, comment on a guess, etc., whatever, but if you're posting in this thread your post should either contain a guess (if you haven't already guessed yet for that clue) or a clue if you're the turn-holder.

Other general rules of conduct and good advice are be sure you're keeping up to date if you're involved. If you correctly guess a game but you're going to be too busy to provide clues and check back on the thread, go ahead and give it to someone else, or leave it open for anyone to grab. Up to the discretion of the turn-holder. Also, try to keep your clues specific. Try not to use clues that could apply to an entire franchise, or if you do, be sure to include other clues that are game specific. For example if you use "the covenant", it's going to bring in a whole slew of guesses from different people, and really no one would be wrong: Is it Halo? Halo 2? Halo 3? Halo Wars? Halo ODST? Halo Reach?

Did I mention no cheating? No cheating.

So I'll take the first turn. Here goes.

1. You punch and kick a lot of things in this game. Like a lot of really random things...

Nope.
(you don't have to provide clues after every incorrect guess but I'm feeling generous right now)

2. This game has pretty enormous sprites.

No sirs. Things you're punching/kicking (or trying to avoid) include stones, sticks, knives, guys in hooded robes, plates, fans, fireballs, nunchucks, arrows....

Oops, sorry. Got distracted by work and stuff!

1. The toughest enemies in this game are the embodiment of e pluribus unum.

EDIT: I misread the hint, so I'll go ahead and forfeit my turn.

No idea what e pluribus unum is so I'm going to guess Metroid.

It's Latin for "out of many, one." It's the unofficial motto of the US, and it's written on all US currency.

When you think about it, that makes Metroid a pretty good guess.

I'm going with Mass Effect. Reapers and the Geth and all that.
