I'll be sending the answers then. I got about half off the bat and I just had to check up on the games to find the names of the characters for the others, except for 2 which required more effort. :lol:phazer
Come on phazer, after all this time ogling at anime girls and video game girls has to pay off in some way :lol: JK ;)
I only play PC games, so this`s really hard for me. I got 7 so far. :(harry_james_pot
You are just like me. I too play PC games and mostly action adventure types, so its hard to get few of them :P

[QUOTE="drokmore"]This is a great activity, pushing my video game memories to the limit. Im pretty sure I have no hope on 18, still 5 to go, hopefully that hint on 7 will dislodge something in my brain...Synthia
To be fair, the clue in the quote only really helps if your into musicals :P

Ah something is dislodging in my brain, I've actually seen that musical...

Alright here's a hint for number 7

Anything you can do she can do better, she can do anything better than you.

Synthia

That was an awesome hint. Just enough to point in the right direction without being a spoiler. It was oh so satisfying when I finally found her. Thanks so much for the thought you put into that one!

Only #2,#7, and #12, I definitely have no idea on it. The rest should be no problem for me since I played those games before. The moment I saw Synthia avatar reminds me of #12 (look alike lol)

You could design another emblem for those who are 100% correct. Pretty in Perfect Pink?

One question: Do we need to state only the character or we need only to state from which game image is???

Surprisingly, a Google Search isn't helping me find #10. It's so familiar to me yet so distant.

I am also stumped on #18 and #16 - especially #18. There's so little in that.

UPDATE I: I got #16! I should have suspected! :lol:

UPDATE II: I got #18! Of all the portions of the game character that Synthia used, she showed THAT one. :lol:

UPDATE III: I got #10! All I can say is, beware of the hints that others are giving you if you asked them for this one, even if they believe that the hints are true! Even if they lead to an answer, it may not be the exact answer!

By the way, I got number 7. This one will be familiar to gaming veterans. :P

Feel free to send me a PM if any of you want to discuss the answers with me.

Oh yes, by the way, the game characters (also in pink) below should tell any of you who believe that pink is mainly for the effeminate that it is not necessarily so:

[spoiler]

Well, technically, the Emperor's Children Space Marines were a bit effeminate - they also had a garish fashion sense no thanks to their obsession with perfection (especially aesthetics-wise). Their fall to Chaos made them even worse (which is also the reason that I am not placing a post-Heresy image of them here; it's NOT kid-friendly).

(Part of) UPDATE II: Just a musing here; I know the game character (yes, she IS a game character) that I am using as a profile picture has obviously pink hair (not unlike so many other fictional Japanese anime characters), but she will NEVER be featured in any game site - for very good reasons. :P [/spoiler]

I FOR SURE need the name of the character, if you have the name of the game as well I'll give you brownie points ;)

This was a tough list. Looking back over it now, I had at least heard of 18 of the franchises, and I had a pretty good idea where 8 of the characters had come from just on sight. However, I have only seen about 3 of the games in person for sure, only played 2 of those some myself, and I've only actually seen 1 of these characters in the game. It was a long way to go for me. I'm now hoping we get to see the original images when the activity is over. I found similar images for most of them that seemed official in origin with a fairly high degree of confidence, but for a few I couldn't do that. I'll be curious to see those. Thanks for running this Synthia! Edit: I always regret it when I don't refresh in a while...

Forgot to add on Friday that I finally got them all. I was down to 1 until I finally got lucky and figured it out. Really loved how challenging this was Synthia! Thanks for doing it!

Thanks to the hints from a fellow user from this thread, I am one answer away from identifying all twenty images. Unfortunately, I am still stuck with #18 which the fellow user told me is a cropped image from a character's rump.

Update: finally able to identify all twenty images and will e-mail my answers soon. Thanks to the user who provided me with hints.

Update 6/26: e-mail sent. I wonder whether the emblem will be "legendary" or "epic." Some of the latter answers were challenging, even though I was able to easily identify more than ten images.

I sent the email with 18 answers. :) But all of these games (except 2 of them) only exist on consoles. As someone who only plays PC games, i found this extremely hard, and i'm sure all the other PC gamers here agree with me. So it would be great if you could balance that out the next time you make a guessing game or a box art hunt. :) Though i do understand that there's no PC games with people wearing pink in them. :P
