Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

We're going to revisit a competition, only using new games!

This month I scoured GameFAQs for screenshots submitted by our users! I then took 50x50 pixel snippets from each screenshot and put them together! Your task is to find the game and system that I got each screenshot from. The catch, I didn't get any two screenshots from the same system. That's right, each of the 20 screenshots comes from a different system. Now there may be some multiplatform games in there, so the trick is to figure out which system I used...

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "August Competition Entry"

NOTE: The games are not numbered, as such simply guessing the correct game and system for at least one square is sufficient.
NOTE 2: If your message includes more than 20 games and systems, I will start from the top and only accept the first 20 answers, even if you are correct about a game or system on a later answer.

Use Game – System to make your guesses.

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive three points for guessing the correct game and 2 points for naming the correct system that I pulled the screenshot from. This means that for multiplatform games, you have to get the correct system for full points, but still get some credit if you get the right game.

Prizes are:
1st Place: 40 karma
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

The Squares!

Hmm... I at least know some of these games so I will try...
There's a mystery to be uncovered here, that's for sure. And I get the feeling the truth is beyond my wildest imagination.

I tend to like this kind of contest better, even though my lack of game variety holds me back.

When I first read the rules I thought each square was from a different system and I was confused until I realized there are more squares than answers.

Yes, it is entirely possible for a game to have multiple squares. In fact, there have to be some games with multiples. :P

I liked it better when the squares were larger & weren't in a grid.

I only know like 5 already. Not sure if I'll get through on this one.

That third one on the bottom row, though. I think Assult's trying to troll us slightly.
