Mystery Steam Reviews is a video game quiz we do every Tuesday on our weekly video podcast, The PC Gaming Weekspot. It was originally only meant to last for around 5-10 minutes on each show, but it’s grown into a monster. A PC game quiz monster that we think you’ll enjoy, so that’s why we clip it out of each show for your viewing pleasure.

The rules are simple — it’s a video games quiz where we have to guess games from their Steam reviews — but let’s make them sound convoluted, anyway:

Colm and Matthew both bring three Steam reviews to the MSR arena (yes, arena), but they omit the name of the game associated with each review. Their opponent must correctly guess the name of that game, including any numbers or subtitles. However, there is some leeway for things such as “Complete Edition” or “Definitive Edition.” One correct answer = one point.

While both combatants have 90 seconds on each Mystery Steam Review, they also have help in the form of three lifelines. These can be used at any stage during battle, and also pause the 90-second timer. Each lifeline can only be used once.

When Publisher is called upon, the hotseat-haver learns the publisher of the game. When Second Opinion is used, the man in the fiery chair will get to hear a second Steam review of the same game. And when Genre is activated, the genre of the game is revealed to the one with the warm arse.

  1. Surprised DOTT didn't turn up!Love these videos, and I know they probably don't want to make it much longer, but I wonder if they've ever considered a tie-breaker if it's a draw – a third party picks one review on the same topic, read out to both of them. No life-lines, no timer. If you buzz first you get to answer, if you get it right, you win, if you get it wrong, you lose – or would that mean they just sit there staring at a review for 10 minutes? Either way, it'd be funny to watch Matthew get annoyed at yet another idiotic Steam review.

  2. I’m surprised neither of you picked Evoland 2 with it’s pretty much full version of snake in the style of Nokia.

  3. Wolfenstein The New Colossus has (sorta) all of Wolfenstein 3D in it. But really, I just shouted "Day of the Tentacle!" at each and every one of these…

  4. I actually laughed aloud at Matthew's reveal of the first one. Bravo!
