The Quiet I.T. Guy | Mystery Steam Reviews (Video Games With A Silent Protagonist)

For this week’s Mystery Steam Reviews, The PC Gaming Weekspot boys discuss playing a game in a pandemic, peeing on demons, and farting in church. This MSR is all about video games with silent protagonists. Let us know how many you get right in the comments.

Mystery Steam Reviews is a video game quiz we do every Monday 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 we’ve decided to start clipping 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 each review is for. 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 pause the 90-second timer. Each lifeline can only be used once.

Question allows whoever is in the hot seat to ask a simple yes or no question, as long as the question isn’t, “is the name of the game [insert name of the game here]?”. When Second Opinion is used, the man in the warm 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 man with the fiery arse.

  1. man that was intense 😀 i figured out the first one seconds before the end of the timer. second one, no chance. third one was actually immediately clear i thought and damn funny. fourth one, tho, as well. fifth and sixth one: no idea.

    how cool is that format?! kudos to you guys!

  2. These Steam review challenges are only amazing BECAUSE OF MATTHEWS SALT. I mean seriously, anyone who genuinely complains about Matthews salt, the funniest part of this show, can F right off.

    PS: The Goat simulator does a goat bark like a dog part had me genuinely LOL'ing.

  3. Since I'm unable to distinguish between real salt and salt artificially added for dramatic reasons I must say I enjoyed this very much. There were some previous episodes that really had me worrying if there will be another one or if that's gonna be it 😄

  4. I mean Colm plays this game pretty devious. That first review seemed sketchy. Like win by technicality. Silent in one game, but not in another. Technically it's good, but ethically..? hmm

    Anyway, I think you guys should be able to protect sketchy reviews.
