Name That Game #1 [Update]


TimWelcome to 2P START’s, ‘Name That Game’. This is something I thought up recently and I hope you enjoy it. If you all like it well enough, I may make it a regular occurring blog post here. So here’s how it works: Above, you’ll see a small portion of a much larger picture. This picture is some sort of official artwork for a videogame. It could be a screenshot, or box art, or a flyer, or anything the publisher put out related to the game. Your challenge is to figure out which game it’s from. If no one guesses correctly in a reasonable amount of time, I’ll expand the window a bit and let you see a little more. This is a ‘just for fun’ contest, but I may include winner’s names and past contests in our Contest section alongside the Trivia for You winners from the podcast. So without further ado, can you Name That Game?

[Update]: It is indeed Pac-Man! The artwork is from the side of the cabinet from the original arcade version of the game. Great job Jared (and the others who guessed right)! I’ll have another up in a day or so, so check back soon!

    Hey! I think this is a great idea! Oughta be fun. I think it will take me some time to divine the answer, though… Still, I thought I’d put my two cents in just in case I can’t figure it out.

    Samba De Amigo?

    I believe the answer is Pac-Man.

    I can’t help thinking it’s from one of the Mario games, but I have no idea which if it is.

    Great concept for a contest. Unfortunately, I can’t come up with anything for this one.

    It’s the blue ghost from pac man, most likely the art on the side of the ms. pac man arcade machine.

    It’s OBVIOUSLY from Halo. Gosh. Yeah, I have no clue where it’s from.

    Viewtiful Joe maybe.

    Like the new contest idea, also gives people a chance to win a contest if they don’t jam the podcast. I hope when you start putting winners of “name that game” on the contest page you’ll make a second column for it. But I’m sure that you already knew that :mrgreen: .
