Unfortunately I'm not sure AssultTank took such close care in terms of formatting. Unless you're going to tell me #24 isn't Star Fox: Assault

I went with Star Fox Command, although I was also considering using Star Fox Guard.

The fact that some of the entries do have colons implies that the ones that don't really don't.

That's what I went with, but I guess it could also be Star Fox: Guard as well.

Went with Star Fox Guard on that one - indeed, because of the formatting.

I got pretty confident that it was Assault because on thesaurus.com "retreat" is literally the only antonym listed for it.

Also, another thing: in #21 I've convinced myself that he typo'd and meant to write "Office" instead of "Offense." I cannot see how "Offense" makes any sense, since with the word "Triad" in there I can't imagine the answer being anything other than Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Yeah, I think I definitely missed a couple colons. >.<

And offense was supposed to be office.

That doesn't really seem fair since this information was not made known to us right from the start, but I suppose it's just too bad as it appears to be unintentional. Perhaps you might consider making some sort of allowance for those of us who considered the colons to be important in our answers.
Liberate you, from your wild curiosity.

Ya, I was trying to find every game that ended in Triple Threat and thought there was a Mario Soccer or Kirby game like that

Shoot. I forgot to send in my submission.

For #4, people are saying Dark Souls although I guessed Shining Wisdom.

I actually went with Star Fox: Adventures as 24, because I though of retreat as like a vacation, but seeing the other options makes me feel pretty dumb haha

Glad I'm not the only one who made that guess. Honestly, a lot of these have so many valid options that I can imagine grading them is going to be an absolute nightmare (the most likely reason why the results haven't been posted yet).
So Jill Valentine planned a three-way with Chris and Barry, but called it off at the last minute.
Needless to say, she was almost a Jill sandwich.

I think it's tricky because as I mentioned before, almost all of these can have many "valid" answers after playing with a thesaurus enough, given the immense number of games that exist. I don't think that alone would be the right criteria for a correct answer.

If it were me personally, I might be inclined to give partial credit to answers that fit especially well without being obscure to the point of virtually being unknown, and MAYBE in select cases give full credit to answers that fit perfectly and are also equally prominent titles as the intended answer.

All of this notwithstanding, I agree with others' earlier sentiment that this is a really cool and fun contest idea, and that we should have more like it!
