Jeopardy's Fortnite, Elder Scrolls, and Destiny 2 Questions Wrecked an Entire Line-up of Contestants

Trivial pursuit.

You don't have to be a genius to play Jeopardy, you just need to have a firm grasp on history, science, the arts, grammar, and the English language. But no one apparently Wednesday night's contestants that video games are mainstream now because they all totally bombed the "Video Games" category. All five questions.

The category started off on the wrong foot when returning champion Evelyn Rubin asked for Video Games $200. The question asked which company created an infinity series based on its popular characters. Rubin answered "Pixar" though the correct answer was actually Disney.

Contestant Jordan Boyd-Graber actually picked up that answer and went on to fail every question in the video game category, knocking him from his $2,800 lead. Boyd-Graber responded to questions about Skyrim, Destiny 2, and Fortnite with answers like Dragon Age, Halo, and silence respectively.

While there's no doubt that any one of these contestants would have kicked my ass on literally any other category from the night, I'm confident that I would have picked up the entire video game category, except maybe the question about Joust.
