    anyone ever played this before?
    I did a while back, and hooboy is he creepy.
    almost any character or remotely famous person you can throw at him, he gets it.
    it's essentially 20 questions, and works based on statistics...but there are some REALLY weird coincidences that happen. Like when he gets your character in 4 questions using just general stuff.

    give it a try, have fun ;)

    I was thinking of Crasher (from the GoBots), it guessed Optimus Prime. I sense a failure in it's ability to understand my response to "is your character male?"

    It didn't get mine. I was thinking of Skinner from X-Files. It guessed... Murdock from A-Team. :sly2:

    I've played Akinator for a while. Pretty accurate in general (depending on the questions asked), but it's kinda off when it comes to Transformers and bots in general.

    I beat it by describing Akito Tenkawa(Martian Successor Nadesico)

    it asked is the character of arabic decent and immediately I knew it was trying to zero in on Setsuna from Gundam 00. I answered no and it still guessed setsuna. The funny thing is Akito from nadesico was available in the list of space heros it wanted me to select as my answer

    Edit: It did much better with Wonder woman and Hard Gay
    I love the questions players have added "Does your character perform roundhouse kicks?" lol

    Right, I forgot all about that bit. Still kind of a major difference I'd think.

    Had Blitzwing in mind and he guessed Starscream. Not too bad, I say.
