It looks like you discovered a bug in the error message.

It probably should have said: Did you remove the 'ViewBag.PageTitle' property assignment to 'Video Game Detail'?"

And that's because the instructions did not include making any changes to this line:

    ViewBag.PageTitle = "Video Game Detail";

Put that line back to the original state to pass the challenge. You also don't need the "@" for Model.Characters since that entire line is already in "C# mode".

:beetle: You may want to report the bug in the message to Support, it might get you a "special Exterminator badge".
