Name That Game

Yep, it’s that time to play Name that Game again. Last two games I made were nostalgia driven with screen shots of old but awesome games I grew up playing. This time I decided to stick to modern titles. Some of these are new games and some have few years under their belt but they are recent. Well… 12 is an exception. I discussed most of these games on this blog, but there are few here that I have yet to write about. Some are games are blatantly easy to recognize, but for a few I tried to play dirty and picked an odd screen shot. So for example you can see a panoramic view with the characters cropped out, or a custom-created character instead of the recognizable stock hero of the game.

For those of you who have not been lurking long enough to see one of these the rules are simple: try to guess the titles of as many of the games you see in the picture below. The screenshots are numbered for your convenience.

Also, perhaps this time I will try to hold off acknowledging right answers right away. Instead you can try to feed off what other people said before you and discuss it amongst each other. Whoever posts a list of titles that is completely correct first wins. Otherwise the win goes to the person who got the most titles right. The prize is a coupon for one free internet (void where prohibited).

    I don’t play console games, maybe that’s why I’m missing #7 and #11?
    #2 and #16 are really perplexing.

    @ IceBrain:

    MUGEN is indeed awesome. I remember browsing MUGEN Army website and constantly hitting lings that would drop you on some foreign language websites. This wouldn’t be so bad if they linked you directly to the page for the character they were claiming to link to. But no they were like “here is some dudes home page. The character is somewhere there – good luck finding it”.

    Oh, and some are ridiculously broken too. I once downloaded a “Superboy” who had basically no delay on any of his attacks. So he would punch as fast as you could mash buttons – so you could just keep punching the opponent until they dropped down and they could do nothing about it.

    Blasphemy! ;)

    @ Dileep:

    Actually no. I just looked it up and the game was actually made Unreal Engine 3. Also it took some effort to find a screenshot of this game that did not immediately give it away.
