Some games you're able to realize instantly that they were made to be played in a party or more social setting and Akinator is one of them. This genie has been roaming the internet for years now claiming that he has all the answers to your questions. Or rather, that he has all the questions to our answers. He may cast a wide net but you'll see just how narrow it gets as he starts to pull it in. The genie poses the same challenge of trying to stump him and it feels too enticing to let that opportunity slide.
The longevity of web games is mainly defined by their memorability combined with their core concept. This one endures simply because the premise continues to be entertaining even after all these years later. It's fun to do it just for a kick and it's fun to do it for a challenge, both by yourself or with friends. It's also a great icebreaker and a way to get to know people better while encouraging discussion as you try to answer questions. The real question is whether you will defeat Akinator or help his knowledge of the media grow even more vast.
How to Play
Akinator is a browser game that you can play with just the mouse. After you open the window, click on the appropriate button to begin playing. Before you do, have a clear image of the character you have in mind and that you're knowledgeable about. The genie will appear on the left side of the screen and begin to ask you questions. They're questions that garner a "Yes" or "No" level of response and you can click on the one that closely matches your feeling about the answer. You can also choose "Don't Know" if you're not sure, but it's best to pick a character whose details you know very well.
Keep answering the questions and around about 20, Akinator will take a guess as to the character you're thinking about. If he's right, the game ends and you can try again. If he's wrong, he'll keep asking questions and take more guesses. After around 80 questions and he still hasn't guessed correctly, you can enter your character's name to see if it's in Akinator's knowledge. If not, you can enter the character's details yourself and the genie will claim that you have beaten him.
Tips and Tricks
There isn't a lot of strategy to this game, but Akinator is less likely to guess something more recent. You can also make it more fun by coming up with your own game like who can get their character guessed the most often or who can be the first to stump Akinator.
