I've done a few of these elsewhere also, so why not try it here too. Cool
First find the games these screenshots are taken from.
When you have identified all (or most), you can find three more gametitles.

1: take all the first letters, leave out one, and rearrange the letters to find an 18-letter title.
2: take all the second letters, leave out two, and find a 17-letter title.
3: take all the third letters, leave out three, and find a 16-letter gametitle.

For this, take the first three letters as you would find them in an alphabetical list. So 'The Arrangement' would be 'Arrangement, the' and contribute ARR (and not THE).
To line things up for the anagrams I needed to resort to a few lesser known games, so I tried to balance it with a few easy ones.

The following letters should be left out:
1: the first letter of game 19
2: the second letters of games 13 and 19
3: the third letters of games 14, 15 and 18.

When I was done setting this up I thought the anagrams might be a bit too hard (with 19 letters), so who will prove me wrong?

You can PM me with answers or questions that contain spoilers. Or ask for hints if you just want to solve the anagrams.

Game 02
Game 03
Game 04
Game 05
Game 06
Game 07

Thanks HandsFree it looks like a very good puzzle. I think it's going to take awhile for me to work my way through it. Smile

Oops. Well,I've learned that it's very hard to predict if a screen is easy to guess or not.
If others feel that way too, I can replace a few pictures with easier ones.

I'm struggling a bit (a lot). Rather than replace pictures, perhaps a few hints. I don't know - just an idea.

I think I've got just 6 of them. Otherwise .... eek! I know how some of you felt when I set my screenshot puzzle now! affraid

Edit: No. Second thoughts. I'm sure the expert screenshot spotters will do well on them. As for me .............. !? scratch

Well, the anagrams are proving to be very tough, even if I guessed 17 out of 19. By the way one of the game is known with 2 different titles.
And, please, feel free to add your old trivia to my site Very Happy

Wow! Most of those screenshots are tough ones, HandsFree, but don't change anything yet. I only have a handful so far and a couple of hunches, but maybe a few stray synapses will trigger some more memories.

Of course I will give everyone the chance to solve this without help first.
Indeed some games are known with different titles. I used what I thought was the most common title, but if I receive answers by pm I can point out what title to use (if needed).

In the meantime SuperEdy found 17 titles AND the game in the second letters!

SuperEdy let me know that the anagrams have become very hard with 19 letters and not knowing wich letters to discard. So I added that information to the puzzle. But that doesn't help of course if you don't know the titles.
So is anyone still trying this? Any hints needed?

Maybe time for some hints?
I'll post them here, separate from the original puzzle so they won't be too tempting for who doesn't want to use them.
The games 1,5 and 15 have been guessed by everyone who tried (SuperEdy, LadyKestrel, Gelert and Hatshepsut), so I assume hints for those aren't needed.
