Our very first Bother’s Bar Plays Badly was Snap Finger Click’s It’s Quiz Time, a game from the minds of some of the people behind 2000s video game quiz sensation Buzz! on the Playstation. In it, remarked at how dry the questions were (indeed, as we understand they were mainly created by algorithm) and how it lets the game down rather.
Two-and-a-half years on, and now with proper streaming software in place of 5fps Google Hangout, and because I fancied some easy XBox GamerScore, I decided to revisit it. This time not as a custom game showing off all the possible rounds, but as a standard six round quiz.
Describe It is still the most fun round by a considerable distance. The questions are still dry. But I found the whole thing quite a lot less boring. So that’s nice.
