    "I love playing this game with my friends, but it’s disappointing that we can’t hear ourselves in the videos because the game sound effects dominate the microphone. I wish the sound would be lessened but an interesting game overall."

Did you know?

Did you know there is a guess the character app and computer game named Akinator? So how does Akinator work? Well, it asks you to think of a character, real or fictional, and by asking you yes or no questions. Then it would determine who you're thinking of. It becomes accurate the more famous the character it is guessing. It first went live in Europe in 2007 but took quite a while to spread to the market including the US. But how does it work that way? What allows it to guess what we're thinking of? According to their website's FAQs, they use a program called Limule. And the algorithm they use is their own creation. However, when the character it is trying to guess is too obscure, it asks the user to upload who the character is. It has an evolving log of characters from users all over the world. 

A Wired magazine article explained that asking questions would be a binary problem. By asking one question, it already eliminates the other half of the possibilities. Which in turn narrows the search into finding the correct answer. It is mostly statistics and math by assigning a character with a certain variable and going from there. It is definitely fun to try and outsmart an AI. Such as thinking of the most obscure character to check if it can guess your character. But then, playing with an AI is too boring sometimes. That's why puzzle and trivia apps also exist. Sometimes, it's fun to play these things with an actual human, and against an AI. It's no fun if everyone gets it correctly all the time. You can also try games with character creation if you want something where you can choose the look of your character.
