Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Thesaurus.com gives the name of this game as "distant weep" - but what is the actual name of this game?

Answer: Far Cry

'Far Cry' was originally released in 2004 and followed Jack Carver, a US Army Special Forces operative, stranded on an island chain searching for the person he was escorting prior to their boat being destroyed. Jack learns that the islands he is travelling are part of a genetic modification experiment - with no retreat and no surrender possible, Jack needs to get the heck out of there!
2. One word from thesaurus.com will give you the alternative to "combat zone". Which game has thesaurus.com given me a clue to?

Answer: Battlefield

The original game in the 'Battlefield' series was 'Battlefield 1942' which was released in 2002 for Windows/Mac. There have since been various games released using the same name including several sequels as well as different 'versions' of each sequel. There were more than 20 games released within ten years of 'Battlefield 1942' making a very lucrative series for the developer.
3. "Frontiers" is the synonym that thesaurus.com has given me for which game?

Answer: Borderlands

Rather than just running around shooting humans and non-humans, there is some strategy involved in this game in that points earned are used to develop the player's character and skills in specialised areas. A player can follow one particular specialisation or develop several at once. The game can also be played multiple times using a different main character each time.
4. Thesaurus.com will give you the name of which game that otherwise goes by the name of "hail of responsibility"? (remember that "of" is the middle word here and thesaurus.com won't give you a viable option for it if you try!).

Answer: Call of Duty

'Call of Duty' has been published in many different formats and for several consoles, as well as PC/Mac. The earlier games are set in WWII with later games set in more modern times, with some set in the future - although this is relative as they will no longer be the future when my husband is playing them in 20 years' time (then again, there will probably be a different version on a console that has gone through several different incarnations until that point!).
5. I think thesaurus.com is broken - in fact, it has spelt this one completely wrong (according to my dictionary, anyway!) "Catastrophe" is the synonym, but what is the actual game title it refers to (watch the spelling on this one!)?

Answer: Crysis

Jake Dunn (US Army Delta Force) is the main character in this futuristic game. As with many of these types of games, there includes islands, jungle, extra-terrestrials and don't forget those human baddies (this time, it's the North Koreans). Jake (callsign: Nomad) and his team are all equipped with futuristic "Nanosuits" which give them superhuman strength, abilities and some protection from enemy gunfire and explosions. Multiple weapons and vehicles are available to the player to enable them to kill the bad guys and save the day.
6. Which game with a thesaurus.com synonym "translation" of "award of esteem", sounds a lot more highbrow than it probably is?

Answer: Medal of Honor

'Medal of Honor' was first released in 1999 with a story written by Steven Spielberg. The first 'Medal of Honor' was first released for Playstation; Windows/Mac, GameCube, Xbox and Wii all got a piece of the action with later versions of the game.
7. Although thesaurus.com has come up with two words as a synonyn for this game, "murder area" was the best match in my opinion. Which single word titled game does "murder area" best fit with?

Answer: Killzone

'Killzone' is one of the few first person shooter games not taking place on some version of Earth. A short search on the web will give you more of a synopsis of the game - and can probably make more sense that I ever would!
Being published by Sony, this game was originally released for Playstation 2 with later games compatible with Playstation 3.
8. "The roaming deceased" sounds very soft and soothing, doesn't it? Not when a zombie apocalypse is involved! Which game has thesaurus.com found synonyms for?

Answer: The Walking Dead

Released in 'episodes' over several months of 2012, 'The Walking Dead' takes place after a zombie apocalypse (in case you didn't guess that already by the name!). 'The Walking Dead' is based on the same-named comic book series and uses the same setting but several different characters, with the storyline affected by user choices throughout the game.
9. Thesaurus.com has com up with "extinct atoll" as a synonym for this game. OK, so "atoll" is a bit of a stretch - but how many single words can be used as a synonym for a place usually depicted as a mound of sand in the middle of an ocean with a single palm tree growing in the middle? Anyhow, I digressed a bit there... Which game would best fit with the synonym "extinct atoll"?

Answer: Dead Island

'Dead Island' is another zombie-based game, with the main characters required to traverse an island to get to a lab where they can get an antidote to the infection that caused the zombie-like outbreak. They then need to find 'The Voice' - a person in prison directing them through their travels - to release him so he can save his wife. To cut a long story short, 'The Voice' is found and.... you'll have to play the game yourself to find out the ending - I'm not giving it away!
10. Think negatively for this one. For which game has thesaurus.com given me the synonym "fate"?

Answer: Doom

'Doom' was first released in 1993 and I remember feeling motion sickness as I watched my boyfriend (at the time) play on his PC. The motion of the camera as it followed the line of sight of the main character was unsettling - compared with the typical two-dimensional games that were typical at that time.

The objective of early versions of the game was for the main character (the player) to navigate their way through a room (or area) destroying everything along the way and eventually getting to the exit.

A multiplayer mode let users make the choice of playing together, as a team, or playing against each other in a 'deathmatch'.
