This thing is freakin' cool! I've been playing it for like 20 minutes now. 
 
Basically, the genie asks you questions and tries to guess the character you're thinking of.  
 Try it here:  http://us.akinator.com/# 
 
Also, look, it even guessed Jeff Gerstmann! 

 INCREDIBLE!

Oh hell, it's got Vinny on there too.

I won.  Rich Gallup wasn't there,  but he's entered now.  If you win, it lets you give the details and such of that character. 
 
 
Oh, by the way, I lost twice.  The first one surprised me a bit, but the second one blew my mind.  The first was Buck from Call of the Wild by Jack London.  The second was Erana from Quest for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness.

Holy crap! This thing is crazy. I tried to do your dad, James, from Fallout 3. He figured him out quite effectively. He also figured out Kitana from Mortal Kombat. Now I'm going to try a lesser-known character, I think...
 
Man! He figured out Noob Saibot too. Based on the questions he was asking, I didn't think he was going to get that one right.
 
Edit: Ha. I tried to do Greg Kasavin and he guessed Vinny. How cool.

Didn't know who Thomas Bangalter was. For shame.

@Lights_Up_The_Shaft: 
 
It guessed Mankrik's wife.  I don't how, but it did in about six or seven questions.  Craziness.

i take this back. 
gotta say he's awesome though his questions could be a little obvious.
#11 Posted by ShadowKing7 (753 posts) -

He got Travis Touchdown;  was hoping Travis wouldn't be too well known.
#12 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

The only person I've had to go more than one round with is Val Kilmer. Everything else is always spot on. It's great when you get on the porn track and it starts asking really awkward questions. 'Does she talk a lot?' Yes. Sasha Grey.

#13 Posted by Metroid545 (1823 posts) -

damn the first time he missed it but then on the continuation he got it I had solid snake 
 
I knew he had it when 3 questions in a row were 
does he use a gun 
is he famous under a nickname 
does his nickname have to do with an animal

#14 Posted by rjayb89 (7724 posts) -

Wow, I got Jeff Gerstmann.  I felt bad answering "yes" when I was asked if he was fat.

#15 Edited by Creamypies (4070 posts) -

It didn't find Brad. I'll add him in though!
 
EDIT: Although it did recognise him when I added him in... weird.

#16 Posted by Icemael (6326 posts) -

He got Dr. Wily and Isaac Clarke, but when I thought of Farah Oersted from Tales of Eternia, he guessed Jade from Beyond Good & Evil, and when I thought of Kariya from The World Ends With You he guessed Your RPG Character. I'm still impressed though. After all, Farah and Kariya are pretty obscure characters.

#17 Edited by jNerd (2013 posts) -

That thing is fuckin crazy! It guessed War from Darksiders! :P
EDIT: lmao! & Bayonetta

#18 Posted by Ineedaname (4319 posts) -

I tried Ratchet, it was quite scary, he goes "I think of..." then his face just pops up.

#20 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

This is brilliant. 5 out of 5 so far.

#21 Posted by Symphony (1912 posts) -

That was pretty awesome :D Impressed it even has the Ar Tonelico characters in it, though it took two rounds for it to figure out Aurica, but it was on the right track from the beginning, guessing Shurelia first (had it asked a question about hair color, it would have got it first try, I think).  Also, took two rounds to figure out Cloche from Ar Tonelico 2, and was way off track the first round (guessed some character from Eragon) but then asked very specific questions that narrowed it down to her. :D

#22 Posted by kingclaw (757 posts) -

Fuck, this even got GOD

#23 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

video game characters are easy because we know everything about them. trying doing an actor and you'll get personal qustions that u'll have to keep looking up to give the genie the right answer ..

#24 Posted by TooWalrus (13221 posts) -

So it's a game... genie?

#25 Posted by fwylo (3556 posts) -

Nice, Cpt Foley for me.

#26 Posted by therabidfrog (349 posts) -

Didn't get Geoffry Rush. Try again!

#27 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

He got ridiculously close several times, but he just couldn't get Pious Augustus (AKA The Lich) from Eternal Darkness. He guessed a bunch of characters very close (including Death and Mephisto from Diablo).

#28 Posted by Titl (539 posts) -

IT totally got Brad...the second time it asked me...its kind of freaky!

#29 Posted by Nasar7 (2706 posts) -

Couldn't guess the Dalai Lama but then got it on the second round fairly quickly.

#30 Posted by Sherlock_Pwnz (49 posts) -

Got Wikus from district 9.... Scarily quickly.

Holy crap, it knew Erana?  That's pretty amazing.  And the fact that someone else on here remembers Quest for Glory Iv makes my day.

Holy crap, it actually got Sigurd! Let me try something more obscure...nope, couldn't get Tapir from Cocoron. Expected that.

#33 Posted by Tokyo_Jesus (48 posts) -

This thing scares me, I did Shepard from mass effect and the answers were so unspecific but it got it.

#34 Posted by ArrenDusk (84 posts) -

I went on this a couple months back, and I was really impressed at just how they manage to relate everything that well.
 
..But then again, I remember getting the Pope as the genie's guess when thinking of Bin Laden.
 
Yeah.

#35 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I chose Ellen from Folklore as my character, she isn't in the database, gonna try Keats.

#36 Edited by nukesniper (1312 posts) -

Yeah OK. It got Kanji from Persona 4. It never even seemed to be getting close on its questions. Creepy. 
 
It got Solid Snake way too fast as well. The 5th question was "Does he have a twin brother?" Fuck me. =P

#37 Posted by zudthespud (3281 posts) -

#38 Posted by Milkman (16851 posts) -

#43 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Shit is legit, it was able to correctly guess Boogerman!

#44 Edited by nanikore (2740 posts) -

What the fuck... I thought of Brad pitt and after 5 random questions it asked me "Is your character close to Angelina Jolie?" and then it said Brad Pitt. 
 
This shit is fucking scary. 
 
EDIT: It just got Brad.

#45 Posted by GingerBear16 (41 posts) -

HOW THE HELL DID HE GUESS ADON WITH NON-SPECIFIC QUESTIONS LIKE THAT! 
  
This thing is cursed!

#46 Posted by kashif1 (1428 posts) -

#47 Posted by Steve_C (1751 posts) -

It got Ammy, then Viewtiful Joe, and now Captain Quark. This thing is crazy.

#48 Posted by Cazamalos (983 posts) -

40 questions and 3 tries to guess  Jhon SHEPARD

#49 Edited by Ghostiet (5286 posts) -

He got Naoto Shirogane, Wrex, both genders of Commander Shepard, Gertsmann, a Polish politician Nelly Rokita, Bixler-Zavala from The Mars Volta, Brent Hinds of Mastodon and even fucking Tim from Braid. Though he failed at guessing Mike Watt and Todd Trainer.

Ok, he guessed fucking Steve Albini. This Genie is wicked.

#50 Posted by Absurd (2934 posts) -

It's guessed Manuel Calavera and Guybrush Threepwood  :o
