Description

An FMV-based trivia game, The Guy Game pits you and up to three other players in a series of rounds in which you must answer multiple-choice trivia questions for top scores. Whether you play alone or with friends, you'll also be playing in the company of a couple of comic relief voiceovers that provide commentary, as well as dozens of co-eds out for spring break, who are more than happy to drop their tops off should they lose the questions. Their naughty bits are obscured by "Guy Game" logos, but depending on how much bonus score you get, you can remove the censoring from the clips and unlock them for uhm... further analysis.

You get bonus points by figuring out if the girls are going to answer right or wrong, what they answer, and also by betting on the outcome of mini-games where the girls compete in races, and assorted beach activities.

Trivia

Lawsuit

All versions of The Guy Game are banned in the US, courtesy of a lawsuit filed against the publisher and developers by one unnamed coed who turned out to be 17 at the time she appeared in the game.

While this meant that the game had to be pulled from shelves, the developers apparently managed to release a DVD with all the original footage and more, entitled The Guy Game: Game Over!
