From Quiz Change-a-Letter Video Games

Answer: The Sims

The creation of Will Wright, 'The Sims' is perhaps one of the most popular PC video game series ever created. Players are able to create a family of Sims and help them go about their lives by doing things like building houses, creating (or, indeed, dissolving) relationships, getting jobs and generally surviving in a world that you have a big amount of control over. Each Sim has needs and it's up to you to cater to their needs so they are able to continue living. For instance, a Sim might indicate that they're smelly, so you need to make sure they have a shower in the house; a Sim might try and cook and end up burning it, so you can provide them with cookbooks and help them become a better chef. 'The Sims' marked the first in a series of games that expanded to home consoles and raked in the sales.

20. Mixed up sports has been spotted as a wailing ghost?

From Quiz Cracking Up Over "GTA V" Cryptics

"Has been" is an anagram of the word BANSHEE The Bravado Banshee in "Grand Theft Auto V" looks like a Dodge Viper and is in the car class of sports. The car in single player and the online game comes in a hard top and convertible version. In earlier versions in the "Grand Theft Auto"series such as "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", instead of looking like a Dodge Viper the Banshee looked similar to a Corvette C4. I did own a Banshee in "Grand Theft Auto Online" but I sold it as I wanted the Obey 9f convertible, which looks like the Audi R8.

21. Four arms or not, this video game character can't help you clean, so you'd better do so rigorously, or risk making me mean.

From Quiz Hiding in Plain Sight

Answer: Goro

Despite his bulk and strength, Goro is surprisingly agile, and during his appearance as a sub-boss in "Mortal Kombat" he was notoriously difficult to defeat.

24. One of Rareware's first-person shooters featuring a character called Joanna mashed with a 2010 third-person shooter by Airtight Games.

From Quiz Video Game Mashup

Answer: Perfect Dark Void

Rareware perfected the FPS with "GoldenEye 007" in 1997, and "Perfect Dark" is considered to be a spiritual successor to that. Based around a special agent called Joanna Dark and her mission to stop a conspiracy by the dataDyne Corporation, "Perfect Dark" has spawned several sequels and novels. In 2010, it was re-released with graphical and gameplay enhancements on XBox Live Arcade.

Although the game sold well (and a film version has been hinted at), critics weren't as impressed.

From Quiz Video Game Wordplay Mix - Level 2

Answer: guitar hero

Harmonix released "Guitar Hero" in America in 2005, as a way of bringing a guitar-based game like "GuitarFreaks" to that area of the world. The unique guitar controller allows players to simulate playing an actual guitar. Players must match the notes on-screen on the note highway by pressing the corresponding button(s) on the frets and strumming at the same time. The game has been hugely successful with many official sequels, and many other spin-offs including games focusing on the songs of one band. Harmonix developed the first two games, but handed over the reins to other companies for future titles.

27. Anagram the words in capitals and you'll have a video game. 'I' does not count towards the anagram. I wasn't AWARE that FROGS played this third-person shooter, developed by Epic Games.

From Quiz Video Game Rebuses

Answer: Time Crisis

A classic arcade game, "Time Crisis" was first released for the PlayStation in 1995. The game has spawned several sequels, and also some spin-offs. Each of the games is classified as a 'rail-shooter', as the computer controls the path you take - you just sit and blast every hostile thing you see on the screen.

29. Clue: What the?! Ducks are flying everywhere! and what do you have? A gun! Do you know what game you're playing?

From Quiz Mixed Game Scavenger Hunt! Final Round!

Answer: Duck Hunt

'Duck Hunt' was released on the NES in November 1988. It was possibly the very first game to use something other than a standard controller for game progression. Unfortunately, the Gun controller didn't come with the game, and it was the only game you could use it for. One interesting fact is that other than shooting just the ducks, you could also shoot the dog that caught the ducks after you shot them. You didn't get points for it, but hey, why not?
