I'm spent more hours playing Civilization than I've probably spent studying for all my college courses combined, but I still didn't get the "nuclear Ghandi" clue... bizarre

level 77
Jan 30, 2013
world wonders, tech tree, turn based strategy, alpha centauri (building a ship to go there is a victory condition in every Civ game), etc... would all be better clues than "nuclear Ghandi" which I think is really confusing and probably why this is by far the least-guessed game on the list. I mean only 25% of the people who got "Oregon Trail" got Civ... that's not right.

I think tirmenat's point was that (using current stats as of 14 July 2015) if we assume the 36% of people who got Oregon Trail contains all of the the 31% who got Civilisation, then 86% of people who got Oregon Trail also got Civilisation. However, there is no reason to assume that all the people who got Civilisation are also in the population that got Oregon Trail - so actually we can't know which percent got OT but not Civ based on current information.

tecumseh: there are only two clues so it would have had to have been one of them. The second clue isn't that much better.

penguin: I know what he meant. Given the six month gap in between our two comments, you don't think that the stats could have changed in that time? When I left the comment, the %age for Oregon Trail was 4x higher than the %age for Civilization.

But just because the % was 4X higher doesn't mean you can say that 25% of the people who got one, also got the other. Imagine a scenario where one question has 50% correct, another has 12.5% correct. It's entirely possible that they are two totally separate groups of people and none of the people in the 50% that got the first question right were the same ones that got the second one right. That's what he meant when he said "That's not how statistics work"

tom: it does mean that. 4 people is 25% of 16 people. If those 4 people come from a group outside of those 16 people it doesn't change the relationship between these two numbers.

Nuclear Gandhi is one of the oldest jokes for Civ, and the percentage confusion is because of how you wrote the original statement: 25 percent of group A are in group B vs 25 percent of the amount of people in A is the amount of people in group B Both of those meanings can be understood from your statement "only 25% of the people who got "Oregon Trail" got Civ". All the people who replied to you (including me) immediately understood the first meaning instead of the second one, and I'd argue that's the most natural way to understand that sentence.

level 69
Jan 30, 2013
I haven't even played it, but I know the reference. Apparently, in one of the earliest games, there was a bug which made Ghandi turn into a total warmonger as soon as his country discovered how to make nuclear weapons. The creators then decided to just keep him like that in all subsequent games.

After days of playing Civ IV, Ghandi still appears to be a pathetic religious guy who deserves to get crushed by my modern armors.

His aggression was set all the way to the bottom of the scale, but when they adopt democracy (which reduces aggression by 2), it would roll over to the very top of the scale, making him extremely aggressive. Nuclear weaponry was just the way he would express that, not necessarily the cause.

stubbly, interesting. and I don't think that's how it works in Civ 4 or Civ 5. Gandhi is pretty much a pussy through the whole game. Or at least he doesn't go completely overboard.

They accidentally programmed Ghandi to be more likely to use nukes, then left that way because they thought it was funny. In actual gameplay i have not noticed it but there are some memes about online i guess, probably not the best clue, but funny.

I think what happened was that, in the first game, his "aggression" stat was super low, then when it was lowered further through diplomacy, it reset as super high. The developers decided to keep the glitch for the next ones. Nowadays, he builds nukes to maintain peace, but does not hesitate to use them if feels you are a threat.
+3

May 24, 2018
As others have said, Ghandi has always had a modifier in the game that makes him very likely to use nukes once he gets them. It's a very common trope on civ message boards etc

its because in some forms ghandi has no trigger factor, so if you pissed him off he would glitch out and turn the dial to 2000.

Never heard of Megaman. On the other hand, I never played Wolfenstein and I think I haven't watched it being played for more than 10 minutes in my life, the nausea and headache that it caused can't be forgotten though. Doom was marginally better, Quake a bit more so but I just can't take those games without wanting to puke my guts out and Wolfenstein was the worst of the lot. (The movement, not the gore.)

I got almost half of the answers correct, but beat only 16.5% of the quiz takers. Methinks there be some gamers here. (I only played in the '80s when our kids were young, and I managed to pick up a few more here and there, Tomb Raider from the movie, Angry Birds from the grandkids, etc.)

I too could only come up with Half-Life! I never played Portal, but I thought it was only set in the same universe as Half-Life, and wasn’t a sequel or a remake or anything. If that’s the case though, I disagree that “Half-Life” should be accepted as an answer.
