Carmen San Diego? Guessed at 16
Game Drain (1 year ago)
SWEET!!!! The clue about the school game is what got me there. 1st time I guessed it and they did not

I liked the Silent Hill movie

Not sure if I should be surprised that they know nothing about War Thunder or not...
François Rousseau (1 year ago)
Old enough to guess Carmen Santiago at question 17... the game is educational but not played in school back in early 90s.. well in Canada. I played a lot of that game back home on my father's Amiga. Still remember the travel guidebook that came with the game.

FREELANCER IT HAD THE TRIFECTA OF SPACE COMBAT/TRAIDING/SIM....Has anyone here played that one?!
Aaron Jones (1 year ago)
Perhaps video game movies need to start as small scale film, similar to the 1st X-Men or the 1st Iron Man.  The first thing to do is get them right and build up from there
EzFlyers10 (1 year ago)
easiest 20 questions ever... omg. panel failed so hard. knew it like halfway thru. that said it's kinda adventure & kinda puzzle.

I absolutely love this channel. Game Scoop is hands down the best podcast on the internet. You guys actually know games and seem passionate. Keep up the great work!
Tony B (1 year ago)
Scoop, Beyond, and almost anything from Kinda Funny.
Conan Edogawa (1 year ago)
I think Regular Podcast is the best, Game Scoop, then the Comedy Button
Miles Williams (1 year ago)
+Game Scoop! Scoop indeed.

If the guess is a question you should call it 19 questions! They should get 20 questions!

Game Scoop! Very true! Touché!

Um, "Is it X?" is a question.

A firewatch movie? Won't we know the ending already
Markolius (1 year ago)
Not necessarily. Similar to comic book movies, I feel like other video game movies, often have different stories set in the same universe, resulting in twists with different endings. Firewatch just seems like a very singular story. So if they were to remake it, it's hard to imagine how it could be different than the game while still being called Firewatch (because its singular story is largely what makes Firewatch, Firewatch). Of course, there's nothing wrong with knowing the ending, and there's nothing wrong with a faithful live action adaptation - like going to see a live play that you've seen others perform before. I guess what I was trying to say is that since video game movies tend to be more like spin-offs, how would Firewatch translate into a video game movie? Anyways, it'll be interesting to see
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
Won't you know the ending of any video game movie?
Malcolm Sovani (1 year ago)
I watch thins at a School trip in a visiting rival school and Mondays We have 6 memos about watching porn on school trips but everybody was confessed about us, because we watched Event Horzion.
James Miller (1 year ago)
How about a witcher Netflix series 😜
MrGameControler (1 year ago)
It would probably resemble GoT a lot (high fantasy, sex, politics) except that it would follow Geralt & his loved ones instead of dozens of characters who are at war with each other.
Miles Williams (1 year ago)
That would be dope!
thegamingnerd 123 (1 year ago)
lol I Jared took the trans vibrator comment seriously
TheCurrykiev (1 year ago)
Am I wrong, but I remember Brian guessing the game last week, not andrew? Mind fuck if I've remembered it completely incorrectly.
Jon Kuch (1 year ago)
I'm playing Forza Horizon 3 but I will be playing Gears 4 and Mafia 3 Friday. Can't wait. Those games are going to steal my life for a few months.
Aron Smith (1 year ago)
I actually thought Carmen Sandiego when Daemon said yes to the "hat" question, then immediately said no. Weird.
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
Yeah, I thought I gave it away!
Oscar Niňo (1 year ago)
mars exploration where they discover demons/the gates of hell, isn't that more Doom (original) than Dead Space?
Stephan Meloche (1 year ago)
No way! I finally guessed one that they didn't!
Matt Fish (1 year ago)
Instead of asking "was it made after Jan 1st, 2000", the editors should ask "is this after the fifth/fourth/second/sixth generation"...
Matt Fish (1 year ago)
Yeah. Jared does... most other people don't generally. I just think "2000" is a bad question because it splits two generations.
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
Interesting, I don't think of consoles as numbered generations.
Matt Fish (1 year ago)
Time for a haircut, Justin! ;-)
ArtifiShuL Instinct (1 year ago)
lol Jared is so bad at this game. All he ever does is lists off a bunch of games that nobody knows that clearly Damon wouldn't pick. Has he ever contributed at all other than the time he did the baby dance? hahaha
ArtifiShuL Instinct (1 year ago)
Pretty sure text adventure games are 2nd person like how choose your own adventure books are.
DKLiverpoolFC (1 year ago)
The problem with video games movies is that they keep making movies out of games that don't have any story. Mario, Angry Birds, Tetris, Minecraft....none of these games have a story. Now they're doing Portal...the great thing about all of these games are the game-play, the mechanics, not the story. Take a game that has an actually decent story and the movie might actually be good lol.
OriginalDrDeLeon (1 year ago)
That is a great point
old3nglish _ (1 year ago)
Did I hear this right? Sam considers Tarkovsky's Solaris a part of the sci-fi/horror genre? That's absurd.

I would love to see a quake movie that is has gore and a strong lead character like the marine that fights the cyborgs
kuribo04 (1 year ago)
I don't think conparing video game stories to film stories makes much sense, or saying they are worse. You couldn't tell stuff like FFVII or MGS2 in a movie, and besides, they are commenting on their medium.
Abraham M. (1 year ago)
Prince of Persia was a very good movie and adaption. The first Silent Hill movie was also pretty good, and captured the spirit of the games perfectly. The first RE movie was also pretty decent. And I've seen lots of love for the Warcraft movie from fans. All in all I think this whole 'all video game movies have been bad' trope isn't real anymore. I do get that there hasn't been a masterful movie based on a game yet. But that's different than saying the movies have all been bad. I don't think that's true or fair. Hopefully the Assassin's Creed movie will be that adaption which is truly amazing , or if we're lucky enough we might actually get the JJ Abrams Portal movie if the talks with Valve work out this weekend. That would be spectacular.
Justin Hickman (1 year ago)
Daemon & the crew, I listen to many-a-podcast on many-a-day and this is hands down my favourite, Is it because I am in my mid 30's or is it purely based on the awesome content? Little bit of both me finks - Any-who I myself am a video game collector (see here http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/06/ninterview_avid_retro_game_collector_justin_jutman_hickman old room pre-flood! and here new room post flood - https://twitter.com/nintencollect/status/778116506169335808) and was curious, Do any of you guys share my passion and collect video games? If so would love to know which system(s)?? Would be awesome to hear your answers on the next SCOOP!! Keep up the fantastic work Peace! Justin.

Damn, that Metroid music at 36:01. Straight to the feels!

Guessed it!! Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego... Lol I was randomly reading a wiki about it the other day for nostelgia purposes.
bobbyw223 (1 year ago)

bobbyw223 (1 year ago)
LOL
Wonderbop (1 year ago)
I would also to add why games don't translate to movies well is because many games have great stories but most game we play because of the fun game mechanics. people don't play the COD or battlefield games because of the story mainly but because it is a fun shooter game. I mean assassin's Creed and watch dog's had great stories but it is fun to play because we get to choose where we parkour and what we hack but a movie takes away our choice. and choice is what makes open world games so much fun.
BIG DB (1 year ago)
what was the music before 20 questions?
BIG DB (1 year ago)
Thanks, why I never recognized. Baddass sounding tho.

YANKEEBLUE000 (1 year ago)
Scott Pilgrim vs The World was cool and I think Silent Hill was ok too It was creepy I think Warcraft was bad
YANKEEBLUE000 (1 year ago)
Game Scoop! It's not Your right It's based on a comic but they made a game also that came out around the same time the movie came out Thanks for clarifying It was still a cool movie The game was ok
Josh (1 year ago)
I really appreciate how you go back and check on the comments Daemon. Thanks for showing you care. You don't always get that with media people or they are just straight up rude.
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
Scott Pilgrim is not based on a video game.
Evil Morty (1 year ago)
didn't they already make 4 uncharted movies?
Evil Morty (1 year ago)

I appreciate the discussion about videogame stories, but disagree on a few points - like the argument that videogames can never tell stories as well as film or narrative books. I studied literature during undergrad and am in a creative writing MFA program now, picking apart fiction, seeing how it ticks, and using what I learn to write my own fiction. And from what I've seen of *some* videogame stories, the medium absolutely has the potential to tell great stories. Firewatch, Gone Home, and Oxenfree are great recent examples of straightforward, short narratives that are on par with what gets published in book form today. When we sit down to watch a movie, read a book, play a game, etc., we're inhabiting a different mental space to experience a story, and games simply allow for a different mental space than other mediums. Like, Gone Home would have been *good* as a novel or a movie, but it wouldn't have allowed the audience to participate in the narrative space the way games can allow. Also - movies aren't inherently narrative focused. The vast majority of them are structured to tell a story because that approach has been the most commercially successful. There are less narrative-focused films out there that explore the limitations of visual language.
Andreas Klimmer (1 year ago)
Carlos Chism Gone Home as a videogame made me care much more about the story then even a well made movie probably would have.
Bret Reed (1 year ago)
Those kicks are pretty great, Daemon. I already have 5 pairs of Vans, but maybe it's time for another. :/

One can never have too many kicks.

Tarkovsky's Solaris is fantastic
Solo Fox (1 year ago)
You missed, DriveClub VR, Tomb Raider, Star Wars Battlefront X-wing, Loading Human, and 100ft Robot Golf. I really could go on put I don't like typing. What I am trying to say is It seems like IGN really doesn't give a shit about PSVR or VR in general. They really could be doing some better coverage. Sad thing is if this thing takes off like the Wii they will jump on the band wagon and pretend they were always on board.Nothing against Gamescoop though, you guys are the best part of IGN!
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
It's true we missed a couple of those, but Tomb Raider and Battlefront aren't launch titles. Jared is updating our launch lineup with the ones we missed.

never would have guess Carmen San diego

Justin is way wrong on video games not having stories as good as movies has. And also, people used to think comic books would never get decent movies, because there was so many issues to unpack in just one single movie. And that most of the time those stories didn't make a lot of sense. And look now, there's plenty of movies that perfectly translated well from comics to the big screen and even to TV series.
Charlie Milroy (1 year ago)
of course videogame movies can be good. the length argument is invalid, just look at adaptations of tv shows made into movies. the reason for videogame movies being historically poor is that the stories were bad, but it's mostly because studios don't know how to adapt videogames to movies. think about comic book movies 10 or more years ago. now Hollywood knows what they are doing with them
Charlie Milroy (1 year ago)
I can't name one, but a few. The A Team, 21 Jump Street, Starsky and Hutch, and the Inbetweeners. There are a few more. They aren't all great, but it is possible. There absolutely will be a good videogame movie eventually, it just has to be set in the world. They'll never make a good movie based on a book though.
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
Please name one good movie based on a TV show.
Mucrush (1 year ago)
Warcraft is one of the best video games movies. The story isn't hard to translate to movie (the original story was even extended through novels!) and the director, Duncan Jones, is a Warcraft fan himself, knows the world and characters. He really cared a lot. The movie isn't perfect, no movie is, but its really not a bad movie and its an even better video game movie!
Matthaios Grim (1 year ago)
GAH! You're right. Could've sworn he peed in it lol
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
...pretty sure he just pours his drink on the computer.
Matthaios Grim (1 year ago)
Game Scoop logo is right. Kurt Russel pisses on a computer in that movie, and its amazing.
Game Scoop! (1 year ago)
John Carpenter's The Thing is a perfect movie.

Nintendo actually expressed interest in vr before anyone else x)
Alexander Barker (1 year ago)
I don't care what anyone says. I just saw Warcraft last night and it's become an absolute favorite of mine. If I had the chance to see it this past summer, I would've, guess I'll just have to settle with the steelbook!
