So I watched a couple "Guess That Video Game" videos a few days ago and had this idea, the name uses that title but also takes some wording of a different thing entirely that I saw on another forum once. You describe a video game in the most cryptic/clever/funny/obscure way you can, and I attempt to guess which one you're talking about. You don't technically have to do video games, but to start with we'll stick with those, I may expand to TV shows and movies after this generates a good amount of activity.

Some ground rules/guidelines:
  1. You may guess other people's submissions, but spoiler tag them so I don't see them before I make my guess.
  2. Since there's a greater degree of interactivity, you may and are encouraged to say what the answer is after I submit my guess. Probably also put it in a spoiler so anyone playing along isn't spoiled.
  3. Try to quote things you are responding to, as this thread will likely have a lot of crossed communication.

Here is a sample clue and answer for anyone wondering how to do this

The ClueIt's amazing how the idea of going out and catching bugs turned into this grand game, now with a large focus on the concept of professional sporting!

Spoiler: Right, or Wrong?
Not the game I was thinking of. At least in later games in the series, you can be shot at in areas that aren't pavement - if that's true of the first, I'd say no. Guess again, or take the answer?

Spoiler: The Answer
Street Fighter II. (Or pretty much any of the Street Fighter games, although I was specifically thinking of Dhalsim with regards to getting "fired", and I'm not sure which ones he's in, or if other characters use fire-based attacks.)

Spoiler: Answer
I was going for Minecraft — you colonise a new world each time, and the squared bit was meant to be a clue to the block-nature of the game. Idk if that was too obfuscated tho

A CLUELiquid containing vessel battles through difficult fights to defeat deity. NO, NOT CUPHEAD!


Spoiler: answer
Hollow Knight. Your character (the Knight), as well as the Hollow Knight and Vessels in general, are made into containers for Void, which appears liquid when intert. The 'true' ending involves defeating the Radiance, a god wreaking revenge on the Kingdom of Hallownest through dreams and the Infection. The difficult fights are self evident.

I picked this one because it's my favourite game and I saw a lot of "best indie game" discussions for that year being between Cuphead and Hollow Knight.

Idk anything not Cuphead to answer for that (I didn’t say my knowledge of games was exceptionally broad)

Btw please don’t post the answer alongside the clue, as I can potentially see it on accident when quoting
