20 questions to guess what game I'm thinking of. Standard yes/no questions only.

Some restrictions on questions:
- No more than 3 date-related questions per game since you could ostensibly narrow it down to a specific release date within 10-12 questions, and there aren't all that many games released on a given day, which would make it way too easy.
- Also same rule for letter-of-the-alphabet-related questions for similar reasons.

Things get tricky with genre questions, since everyone has their own definitions. But here are some caveats:
- If you ask about whether a game is a certain genre (e.g. a puzzle game), I will assume your question includes the various subgenres (e.g. match 3 like Bejeweled, block dropping like Tetris, actual puzzles like Picross or Sudoku, brain training like Brain Age, etc.)
- If a game fits multiple genres (e.g. Henry Hatsworth is a platformer and a puzzle game), you're going to get a yes answer to any of those genres.
- A game has to have a significant focus of gameplay in a genre to count in that genre. (e.g. Shenmue would not be a racing game even though there are forklift races in it. On the other hand, Professor Layton is both a point and click style adventure game and a puzzle game).

After a question is answered, everyone who wishes may make one guess as to what the game is. Once you guess, you can't make another guess until another question is answered.

First one to guess right in this thread wins 2 weeks of subtime. No deleting answers and no editing posts or you will be disqualified for the round.

If you win a round, you can't play in the next round so more people can win

Note that if I don't know an answer off the top of my head (such as if it was exclusive to a specific system) I'm generally using wikipedia to fact check. So if I give a wrong answer blame them.

Oops! I didn't realize a guess had already been made. So, that means I can't guess until another yes/no question's been asked, right? How 'bout this, then: is it a racing game?

You can make guesses (it is not RacingTM), just the same person can't guess more than once until a new question is asked and answered.

1. Is it an RPG? no
2. Is it part of a series of games with the same title? (Like SMB, SMB2, SMB3, etc) no
3. Is the studio that made the game still creating games today? no
4. Is it a fighting game? no
5. Is it a racing game? no

Is it a shooting game: either the American first-person or third-person shooter, or the Japanese horizontal or vertical shooting game (STG)? I know that question's a somewhat broad brushstroke. So, I'm okay if you wanna break it up a bit.

I'm going to interpret your question to mean whether the crux of the game is that you shoot things in order to win, and by extension try to avoid getting shot yourself.

1. Is it an RPG? no
2. Is it part of a series of games with the same title? (Like SMB, SMB2, SMB3, etc) no
3. Is the studio that made the game still creating games today? no
4. Is it a fighting game? no
5. Is it a racing game? no
6. Is it a shooting game? yes

It is not. It is also not Shienryu (the JP version of that game)
