The Great Screenshot Quiz Bonanza Spectacular Of 2015

I’ve got a quiz for you!

Part of this arduous labour that is my job is to take an awful lot of screenshots. And once taken, they need names. Now, a better person than me would have some sort of System, which would make them so incredibly easily organised, labelled, and rediscovered. But I am not a better person than me. I’m me. So it is that I give them three or four letter names that I ludicrously believe will mean something to me more than four minutes later. Then, they get dumped into a section of my screenshot folder entitled “OLD”, which after almost eight years of RPS stands at exactly 30.0GB big. 30GB of 100k-ish cropped screenshots, poorly labelled, archived for Later Use. Let’s see if you can figure out what the bloody hell they all are.

Generally, the purpose of keeping them all is to have something to go back to when writing about an older game. Where I have a bunch of shots I’ve taken, they do tend to be in a more helpfully labelled subdirectory. But the loose ones – they’re the mischievous mess. I thought I’d share the entertainment gained from trying to work out which is what, with a little quiz. No prizes, just comment-based glory. What are this lot from, eh?

    7 is Quantum Conundrum, 8 might be Binary Domain (I don’t know why I think that – I never played the game, or watched a video about it) and 9 is Limbo of the Lost.

    • Jalan says:

      8 is most certainly Binary Domain.

      Ugh… Binary Domain. So much potential, so much of it unrealized.

      • Orija says:

        What? Binary Domain was an excellent game.

        • wcq says:

          I agree. Even though the voice command gimmick didn’t really go anywhere, the shooting was good and the story and characters were better than average. Definitely one of the more under-appreciated shootybangs in recent years.

          • Jalan says:

            The story really wasn’t good at all, which is a complete shame since the Yakuza games were (at the very least) entertaining in that respect. If half the effort had been put into the story of Binary Domain that was in the titles of the Yakuza series, I might’ve found myself enjoying it a lot more than I did (game elements I took issue with not withstanding, of course).

        • Jalan says:

          People give it too much praise, but that’s my opinion. Its vehicle segments were awful and the voice command setup was unnecessary (and badly executed – though I don’t see how it could’ve been done better, which is neither a compliment or a complaint I guess).

    1- I am Alive
    2- Mafia 2

      3 is Drawn: Dark Flight
      5 is Singularity. (Already used on RPS)
      6 Horror Mod: Grey (Also previously used on RPS)
      9 Limbo of the Lost
      10 Wildstar

      I think 2 might be the Jimmy’s Vendetta DLC for Mafia 2, to be even more specific.

  3. Cross says:

    5) Singularity

    10) Wildstar (?)

  4. Wowbagger says:

    4) Driver San Francisco ?
    6) looks like it might be Condemned judging by the pipe.

    I agree with those before otherwise.

    1, 5, 7, 8, 9 have definitely been found.
    4 is definitely not Driver: SF, I think it is Driv3r (ugh!) instead.

    I don’t know most of these, but I am appalled at your lack of proper naming and recording of screenshots! You could have at least kept them in game-specific folders… I’d hate to have to install and replay a terrible game just to get a screenshot.

    I shudder to think what you had to do to get that Limbo of the Lost screenshot.

      Hopefully, in the true spirit of the game, he stole it from somewhere else.

  11. Zallgrin says:

    This was fun, hope there will be more Quizes of this type in the future!

    4- Grand Theft Auto- Vice City
    5-
    6- Condemned: Criminal Origins
    7- Quantum Conundrum

    • drygear says:

      After looking at the other comments I know I’m wrong on 4 and 10. 4 isn’t GTA because it has circle maps
      Someone said 10 was Wildstar and that would be my answer.

  15. skyturnedred says:

    3) Drawn: Dark Flight.

  16. Kefren says:

    7 is Swansea, near Mumbles Road.

  17. RaoulDuke says:

    I think I’ve got it:

    1) I AM ALIVE
    2) Mafia II
    3) Drawn: Dark Flight
    4) Driv3r
    5) Singularity
    6) Horror Mod: Grey
    7) Quantrum Conundrum
    8) Binary Domain
    9) Limbo of the Lost
    10) Wildstar

  18. RaoulDuke says:

    I’m confuzzled, are some still in doubt? Because I looked up screenshots for all these before posting, unless some are identical looking sequels, although I couldn’t find a Driv3r screenshot *without* the ammo/police bars in the top left corner which are not present in your screen [But I think its just cut off, looks too wide]. Its definitely not Driver 2 or Driver: Parallel Lines, the graphics are too different in those ones.

    I’ve no experience of HM:Grey or Limbo of the Lost so I guess they could be wrong, just going by others answers, I must know if its finished!

    I CANT HANG UP MY WASHING UNTIL I KNOW!!!

    • Jalan says:

      Good question. I feel like this article is one that shouldn’t have been gated by the supporter program and just pushed out so the community at large had full chance to take a crack at it. But what’s done is done.

  20. Furius says:

    I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about games and the whole games biz, but I literally dont recognise any of these.

    I make up to $90 an hour working from my home. My story is that I quit working at walmart to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $40h to $86h… Someone was good to me by sharing this link with me, so now i am hoping i could help someone else out there by sharing this link… Try it, you won’t regret it!……
