Well, someone must like these console trivia games, or I guess they wouldn't make them.

It can't be any worse than the Guy Game.

Please. The Guy Game isn't that bad. At least there are underage chicks taking their tops off in it. The idea of playing a trivia game with questions like "how many times did Chandler order a double chocolate late with vanilla sprinkles at Central Perk and *not* get a biscotti with it?" seriously makes me want to vomit though.

When the "Joey" spinoff went wrong they resort to their lowest levels of making money.

Well, I love the show but agree this is totally unneccessary. It just smacks as one last effort to make money from the empire that is Friends. With that said, I'll probably pick it up if I ever find it for under $10 :D

1. Those girls are not underage. If they were, the game wouldn't have been sold.

2. I don't need to spend $50 to see a girl flash some tits when I can get a lot more for free on the internet and on tv.

3. The game was horrible.

Unfortunatly yes. It is the reason the game got pulled from store shelves.

Well, I'll be damned.

Yeah, I just typed it into Google, and it seems well-publicized. I don't know how that story completely escaped me.

So if a girl flashes her boobs willingly, she gets to sue for lots of money? Wow. I hope she didn't get any.

If I were underage and a girl, I might do the same thing. Sounds like an easy way to get money. Flash boobs, sue for money. Flash boobs, sue for money. I'm rich!

You have just discovered a way to make a living that women have been using in some form or other for the past 10000 years.

Of course it used to only get you a hunk of mammoth meat but yknow inflation and all.

Some of the Friends DVDs actually have a trivia game (probably something like ten questiions) so you can play that a bit if you absolutely have to play a Friends trivia game. And you save yourself the humiliation of a gaming friend coming over and seeing that you got the Friends video game :D

it seems whenever a discussion of the Guy Game comes up anywhere on the net, this is the main point that people make against the game. I seriously don't understand it though (for guys of age at least). Why *wouldn't* people want to see naked chicks in video games? It's okay to for people to download mountains of porn off the net and watch awful soft-core porn on late night cable but people throw a stink fit when tits are in their video games. Doesn't make any sense considering how popular breasts are in the United States.

Because without the nudity, the game isn't good enough to stand on its own. In my opinion. The nudity was the primary selling point, but there's no point in spending that much money JUST to see nudity in a video game. That's just my opinion though that it's a bad game. I think most people agree though. There's no problem having nudity if it's a bonus, but there is a problem if it's replacing actual gameplay.

Yeah, I suppose that's true. Makes you wonder why more women don't do it, since it's such easy money. Dignity is overrated. Having men in palm of your hand is much more empowering.


This has gotten very off topic, but I guess that's how much interest people have in the Friends game.

I was at Wal-Mart today and looked to see if it was there...just out of curiosity. They didn't have the Friends game but they did have The Bible Game (there's a separate thread going on about that game). No, I didn't buy it or any games today.

QoF and I are doing our game trawl tomorrow. I'll see about remembering to count the number of copies of this we spot. I don't think it will reach double figures (and we will probably go to 30+ stores).

Snapple

The one piece of Friends trivia that I remember is that Chandler peed on Monica's leg after she got stung by a jellyfish. You can use that little tidbit to your advantage, because I know everyone here is going to get a copy of the game.

We spoke to a friend who manages an EB Games in the area about the game. She told us it's been cancelled. Evidently she knew about the game coming out and didn't even have to go look up to see when we asked her.

So if someone actually saw it on a shelf... I'd advise to go grab it!

Rogmeister
11-22-2005, 05:27 PM
That sounds strange. If a game was cancelled, how could it have made it into stores? I would have to doubt the person who claimed that.

11-22-2005, 06:20 PM
Perhaps you misunderstood...could it simply be that that particular EB Games simply cancelled their order and won't be getting any in? I'm purrplexed now. :/

Queen Of The Felines
11-22-2005, 07:12 PM
She said that according to her computer at the store, it was cancelled due to "lack of interest." She might have meant that none of the EB Games were going to carry it.

Yeah, we saw the Bible Game at several stores today actually. But no copies of the Friends game.

I figure EB may not be carrying it, considering it DOES exist as per this eBay auction (and the picture is of a real item not a stock photo)...

I think the person's story about the game being cancelled might have some merit...

I've been looking for this for my fiancee this week, and I can't find it anywhere. GameStop doesn't even acknowledge its existsnce, and a few stores went as far as to think that I made the game up. Amazon doesn't even have it available right now...I'm beginning to think this could end up being a real rarity.

The Friends Trivia game is out. I've seen numberous copies of it at various Meijers in the Cincinnati area.

I also know for a fact, that a certain board member (Oobgarm) purchased this game, and I proceeded to get drunk and play it. I lost and oddly enough I used to watch Friends.

I was about to make a really snide comment, but then I thought about how it takes some really huge cahones to admit that. Like, Charles Bronson-size cahones.

Anyone with that much guts is not someone I want to be making poking fun at.

12-09-2005, 12:17 PM
Thank you...and remember, I've got a Maine Coon and I know how to use it :D

Yes, the game does indeed exist. As I mentioned, I ordered it and it arrived not long after that. Some stores may not stock it but that just means they don't think it will sell well for them.

All of my local Game Crazies got exactly one copy a piece, so if you have those in your area, you should check them out. I haven't seen the game anywhere else, though, and I've looked.

Ding. I rented this ages ago with some friends and it wasn't all that bad. It was no worse than an average budget title, but instead of muddy first-gen quality graphics you get to see sightly grainy videos of tits. Either way, there's no way humanly possible it's worse than the Friends game (or the show for that matter: if I want to see a couple rich giggling cunts talking about whatever minutia gets them through their day, I'll go hang out at the Starbucks in Barnes & Noble).

Obviously, someone who hates the show (and yes, really bad shows do tend to last a decade, don't they?) isn't going to say anything good about a game based on it. The Friends trivia game is obviously not geared towards hardcore gamers but I'd still rather play it than The Guy Game.

Trying to convince me that popularity = goodness will never work. Look at the "artists" winning Grammys, the movies winning Academy Awards, etc. That is certainly not the case. It's all a matter of preference, but popularity doesn't equal quality in my opinion, and it never will.

As far as the Friends Trivia Game over the Guy Game, I can think of only one instance where I'd take Friends over tits of almost any sort, and that would be when my mom was sitting right next to me. Then and only then.

Ok my wife is a total Friends nut. Which made birthdays and Christmas VERY easy until I ran out of seasons to buy for her.

Anyway, I gameflyed the game for her, and we played it 4 player with her brother and his fiancee.

As far as trivia games go it's pretty crappy. They force you to have 1 controller per person, there is almost NO "dressing" of any sort. Question, answer, then a static image that uses windows lighting up in an apartment building to keep score.

The worst part was that despite the fact it claims to have over 7,000 questions, we were constantly seeing repeats even after only playing through an entire game (15-20 questions) 3 or 4 times. Why they wouldn't use the memory card to "flag" questions that had been already used is beyond me.

I only kept it 2 days hehe.

We've played a couple of games, and while we haven't seen any repeats, there's been a ton of questions that were almost the same, just reworded a bit.

But yea, it does come across as pretty plain. Interesting that it shares the same engine as Burnout and Grand Theft Auto III, though.

"Friends" isn't the kind of game you play that often. I played a few games of it when I first got it and then put it aside. Maybe I'll go pull out all my trivia games...a little Friends, a little Jeopardy, a little You Don't Know Jack.
