Have you ever found yourself in a situation where somebody asks you what your favourite game is about, and before you know it you find yourself spending the next 30 minutes explaining the lore intricacies of a fictional world to a person whose face now screams "I really wish I'd never asked"? Hey, it happens! We all love our video games (at least, we assume you do if you're reading this introduction) and it can sometimes be difficult to concisely explain precisely why we love 'em.

With this in mind, we have taken the liberty of describing some of our favourites in the worst way possible. We can't see any of the following making it onto the back of a cartridge box any time soon, but they sure are a pretty, uhh, precise way of explaining what they're all about.

Have a read through each of our bad descriptions and see if you can tell which games we are talking about!

That's just about the bare bones of Breath of the Wild, right?


You scored x out of 15.

  • 0-5: You're all about the details and we have to respect that.
  • 6-10: Okay, maybe a little more detail would have helped you along your way.
  • 11-15: Wow, you sure do like to keep your descriptions simple!

That sure is one way to summarise the games, huh? We hope you enjoyed seeing some of your favourites boiled down to their bare bones and just how weird they seem without all of the pesky details.

If there's any that we missed, why not take a trip down to the comments and describe one of your all-time faves as poorly as possible? Feel free to challenge friends and family, and try out our other quizzes if you're after more video gaming brain-teasers.
