@{
    Layout = null;

    var title = "Super Mario 64";
    var description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
    var characters = new string[]
    {
        "Mario",
        "Princess Peach",
        "Bowser",
        "Toad",
        "Yoshi"
    };

You have the right structure, but the wrong names.

The challenge said to "Name your loop value variable character.", but you used "characters" (plural) instead. Also, "characters" is the name of the list provided for you by the challenge that you should be drawing from (instead of "new list").
