Quiz: Can You Tell Which Video Games These Photo Mode Pictures Are From?

With the launch of Bayonetta 3, I celebrated the game’s photo mode, which might be a new peak for the Switch. It’s still a little bit off the levels of the very best photo modes out there on other platforms, which benefit from better graphics and a greater sense of control. In any case, this got me thinking about all the photo modes I had played over the years, and how distinct each of them feel. Following on from our quiz about whether these games were the remakes or the originals a couple of weeks ago, we’ve put something else together – which games are these photo mode snaps from?

All of these were taken in photo mode, rather than screenshots of gameplay or cutscenes, so you might need to think a little laterally and go off context clues as opposed to straight-up recognition. All of the photos were taken by myself, so if you think they’re good, thank you. If you think they suck, well, that hurts my feelings. Answers at the end!

Let’s start off with a fairly easy one, shall we?

More challenging is this neon nightmare. I did tweak the colours up a little using the in-game settings, and it’s a fairly small detail in the game itself, but is there enough here for you to figure it out?

Another relatively easy one, but can you tell even with the monochrome filter?

This is a very deep and meaningful shot of the world bleached in grey, the ol’ Stars and Stripes screaming red and locked behind bars. Unless you think it’s stupid, then it’s just a silly picture. Anyway, what’s it from?

This game has one of the best photo modes around, but also one of the first I used properly, so I don’t have too many pictures of the intricate details. Is there enough here for you to get it?

Okay, this seems to be a game with skateboards. Is that enough to give it away?

Fans of this game may well remember this part, although the kinder souls among us might have avoided it entirely. I had to do it – for my art, you know?

What are thoooooooose? What game is thiiiiiiiiiiis?

Basically the same caption as above. They’re shoes, by the way.

There’s a deceptively high amount of games with photo modes that feature horses, but do you know what this one is?

You probably know this one, but it’s cool, so I wanted to include it.

Look at the flowers… does that help?

This might be the most underrated photo mode out there, mostly because the game isn’t all that popular. But are you enough of a superfan to figure it out?
