this is already like the “what’s that game?” thread where i see people immediately guessing the answer and i’m like… never in a million billion years would i have thought that.
great idea for a thread! i love (watching people play) this game.
GigaSlime they all have a spooky house or mansion of some kind?…
this is probably to vague to be what your intention was, but it does seem to be a connection between all of them!
Yeah, too vague. The connection has nothing to do with spookiness, ghosts, or ghouls of any kind
I’ll give you guys a hint: The connection is something to do with music!
GigaSlime I wanted to guess Clair de Lune, but that can’t be right.
Do all of these games feature pianos that characters can play?
whatsarobot-a-miserable-pile I was really hoping that hint was gonna throw everybody off and make them try to guess soundtrack stuff!
GigaSlime HA! Nice one. I never would have guessed without your hint, I’ll tell you what.
Dang it, now I have to think up another one of these! Wasn’t prepared to do two in one day.
Gimme a few minutes.
Alright I think this one will be significantly more challenging. Let’s see.
What do these games all have in common?
whatsarobot-a-miserable-pile is there a reason why Madden 15 as opposed to a different Madden?
Moon Good question. Yes! Madden 15 (released in 2014) is the only version of the Madden franchise with this particular distinction.
Is it box art related?
billy Not at all box art related, no.
I’ll give a hint (and I hope this is fair within the rules of this game):
The commonality is external to these games themselves. In other words, it’s nothing that happens in-game.
*Note: If you guys think it was too soon to give a hint, please let me know.
whatsarobot-a-miserable-pile All games were later superseded by more technically advanced versions, is that it?
(Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Mario All-Stars, Crash Bandicoot Remaster Trilogy and ‘next-gen’ versions of Batman and Madden)
edit: that can’t be it, other Madden games have had next-gen versions…
billy That’s an interesting guess, and you could make the argument that it is technically true! But in the spirit of the game, no, that’s not it. Not even close, in fact, heh.
Let me know if/when another hint is required!
whatsarobot-a-miserable-pile is the link to do with personnel?
billy No. the link is completely external.
I feel like Madden 15 and ONLY Madden 15 being on there is the big hint, but the fact two of the games don’t have numbers at all makes it real hard!
Is it something to do with marketing?
Lesmocon yes, it is! More specifically, merchandising.
THEY ALL HAD MCDONALD’S HAPPY MEAL TOYS
GigaSlime Holy cow, you got it!! Nice job. Yup, that’s the answer, so it’s your turn again.
