Quiz: Guess who?

Fien -

You know, you could do another one. Lots of FMV adventures you didn’t use.

Well, here’s another one. Tongue (and there’re STILL a lot of adventures I didn’t use) Sure, not all these titles are full FMVs, but what the heck! 


The Script: Due to popular demand, please guess by PM only like in previous quizzes by chrissie&HandsFree;! Feel free to send as many PM’s, but I’m not giving points for: “Number 16 is a Carol Reed game!” (that’s exactly why Bigge isn’t (unjustly) again featured in the quiz. Grin)

Program Schedule: The quiz will run until Wednesday, March 20th (first day of spring! yay!) 9:00 pm (CET)

Friday, Saturday, Sunday (15th, 16th, 17th) - “All you can guess!” days. No hints here.
Monday, Tuesday (18th, 19th) - “Hint days” festival. I’ll give mild hints on Monday, and some more obvious hints on Tuesday for unguessed pics.
Wednesday (20th) - Final day, Oscars, The Closing Ceremony and after-party!

Behind the Scenes: You’ll find that some of the games in this quiz already featured in 4 previous FMV quizzes - FMV quiz, FMV Quiz: People, FMV Quiz: Vamp or Vampire? and FMV Oasis quiz, but some didn’t. Also, the same game can appear more than once in the quiz.

It looks good, Diego.  Do you just want the names of the games or the characters’ names as well?

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Lovely quiz, Diego! My beloved FMV. I’m shocked, once again, at how few pics I recognize at first glance. Faces should be easy, right?  But I’m going to give my best shot.

Aw, guessing by PM is no fun (I like being wrong, and others being wrong). And I don’t know if someone else has guessed something already.

Still, impressive quiz, quizmaster diego Smile

Thanks, everyone! As for the list of guesses, there will be a daily update showing number of guesses for each of the pics, for example:

1. Two right guesses
2. One right guess
3. No guesses
etc.

and on Wednesday I’ll rank players by correct guesses, and of course, reveal the answers.

Just the names of the games is enough!

Smart move. You won’t believe how many times I guessed a game in a PM quiz simply by seeing who had already guessed it (and knowing their preferences).

P.S. Even a number of people who guessed a game is a giveaway: whenever there’s a crowd of people who have guessed something you know it must be a well-known game (not an obscure one). The more popular the game - the bigger the number of correct guesses.

I was thinking that guessing by PM wasn’t very fun either. I like seeing what everyone guesses, and then I know if it is already used. I think it takes away some of the “competitiveness” of the quiz, IMO.

^ This.
Not knowing is more difficult. And perhaps more fun. Tongue

It’s a lot better than having to be the fastest, and seeing the quiz end in a few hours. Usually by the time I get to participate, all the screens I recognized have already been guessed.
The PM system allows me to play the quiz proper. Plus I get to spend more time doing research for screenshots, which has actually improved my overall adventure game knowledge.
PM quizzes all the way for me! Grin

Diego, I’m confused. Are you going to reply to PMs, so that we know which guesses are correct?

I agree, none-PM quizzes have its advantages (just like PM quizzes have its own) and I’ll continue to do those also

Yess! Tongue (quizmasters have to sleep, also Smile)

Then, you can just look at it like a hotspot-highlighter in an adventure game - if you don’t wanna use it, just don’t look at the list. Tongue

Ok, those are already two votes against the “guessing tracker”. Fine with me, less work to do. Grin But I think the players still need an information about which games are unguessed yet, because either way I’ll give hints for those on Monday/Tuesday. What everyone says?

I want a guessing-tracker! I want a guessing-tracker! Don’t pay any attention to Zobraks, he’ll end as one of the top guessers whatever you decide. But it makes a lot of difference for Fien’s fuzzy memory.

The quiz would be more fun without the guessing tracker (I’m only human and I would check the GT if you post it) and without hints, but you’re the boss; it’s your quiz, you should make the rules, not “cater to the small elite” (as a friend of mine once put it).

P.S. I already guessed Fien’s favo(u)rites featuring in this quiz , so the GT won’t do the trick for me (at list not when Fien is concerned).

P.P.S. “First-come, first-served” quizzes are way much better for padding one’s post count.
PM quizzes suck in this regard.

You have no idea how much this annoyed me. Not kidding.

BTW, I’m still impatiently awaiting YOUR first quiz, Mr. Zobraks.

PS: And how do you know you haven’t missed one or two screenshots, hm? A game can feature more than once in this quiz.

I’m not catering to the small elite - I’m catering to the wish of my contestants. Wink
