Hi!
Thought we could play a game I recently saw on Reddit .. describe one or more video games with a short description, a quote from the game, a single word, a poem or whatever funny way comes to mind. The other posters can try to guess which game it is ;)

I'll start with a few ones:

1. A blue butterfly on a bucket makes a great image
2. Time to make history reeeeeal!
3. somehow I can make more damage when I stick to a random local teenager dress code
4. "Shaaaauuuuun!"
5. go explore the world to find more inhabitants for our village, but don't forget to take this oddly swan-shaped mobile toilet with you, otherwise your partner might get unhappy

5. go explore the world to find more inhabitants for our village, but don't forget to take this oddly swan-shaped mobile toilet with you, otherwise your partner might get unhappy -> Digimon World Next Order

I understood the reference because an Abridged series made reference to it. Otherwise, I'd never have gotten it.

Yes.

1. Yes
2. No, but that is a good answer. The key here is metaphorical, as Fire Emblem is pretty much literal Chess +. Kingdom Hearts III was the answer, with obvious chessboard motiph.
3. Exactly correct.
4. Yep.
5. Yep.
6. Correct!
7. Overwatch. Winston being a talking gorilla and all. "Satan" is the nickname players give to Mei for the sinister way she freezes and kills opponents. Tracer is lesbian.
8. I'm not sure what that game is. I was thinking either Cuphead or Hollow Knight. Cuphead for difficulty and Hollow Knight for atmosphere and loose storytelling themes.
9. Yes.

You got most of them right!

---

Not sure about the quiet psychopath thing. Hmmm...

I'll have to think of more later, I have work to go to.

Ah, the metaphorical chess. Kingdom Hearts was too close to a KH forum that I actually didn't believe that was it. Lol.
Salt and Sanctuary is the most literal version of Dark Souls.. the salt is basically Souls and the Sanctuarys are bonfires. The game is so much Dark Souls that it doesn't even really try to hide it, it even got the "dark" aspect going. Check it out if you like games like that - personally, I found it to be too much like Dark Souls and too little its own thing, but it's generally well-received, I believe.

Uhm, Assassin's Creed? Thief?

Mine are:

1. Too bad America got nuked, luckily I'm the president of the United States and got out of this by magically being beamed into a colorful fantasy land where I'm gonna help a kid conquering the world by forcing peace contracts on people.

2. Since I was chosen by a magical tattoo, I have to travel the world to find a tree that's supposed to tell me who even my enemy is and what the heck I'm supposed to do when I know.

ono Dammit, I didn't realise I'd be on a time crunch to answer these cuz people were gonna provide the answer sheet to their own descriptionssss... [scrambles around]

2. Hogwarts simulator but some other stuff happens next 5 years
Fire Emblem the new one Three Houses?
8. Like Saw but on the Titanic & more educational than anything Broderbund ever made.
9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors... is all I can think of for this one but of course that was on the Gigantic, the Titanic's sister ship that was turned into a hospital ship during the war and I think it sank too, I should really play this game again for the dozenth time...
2. Since I was chosen by a magical tattoo, I have to travel the world to find a tree that's supposed to tell me who even my enemy is and what the heck I'm supposed to do when I know.
the tree part's throwing me, otherwise I'd answer Final Fantasy XIII...?


1. Cure amnesia by researching urban legends. Or die. It's up to you.
2. Travelling the road of life to find LOVE~
3. If Spirited Away were a Laika production.
4. Butterflies + mental illness + cannibalism = "Sounds like a good Friday night!" ☑ Until Dawn (answerer: Veevee)

There is no time limit. I just figured that mine were a bit too obscure and just answered them.

Correct. They kinda suggest that at one point the 2 ships switched names so technically it was the Titanic they were on, but that's up to personal judgment.

The road of life might be Shadow of the Colossus?
