Don't understand the error message..

The instructions don't make reference to removing this Title reference.

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;
using Treehouse.Models.VideoGame;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {
            var videoGame = new VideoGame()
            {
                    Title = "Super Mario 64",
                    Description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.",
                    Characters = new string[]
                     {
                         "Mario",
                         "Princess Peach",
                         "Bowser",
                         "Toad",
                        "Yoshi"
                     }
            };

            return View(videoGame);
        }
    }
}
Detail.cshtml
@model Treehouse.Models.VideoGame;

@{
    ViewBag.PageTitle = "Video Game Detail"
}

<h1>@model.Title</h1>

<h5>Description:</h5>
<div>@model.Description</div>

<h5>Characters:</h5>
<div>
    <ul>
        @foreach (var character in model.Characters)
        {
            <li>@character</li>
        }
    </ul>
</div>
VideoGame.cs
namespace Treehouse.Models
{
    // Don't make any changes to this class!
    public class VideoGame
    {
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public string Description { get; set; }
        public string[] Characters { get; set; }
        public string Publisher { get; set; }

        public string DisplayText
        {
            get
            {
                return Title + " (" + Publisher + ")";
            }
        }
    }
}

The instructions say "Add a using directive for the Treehouse.Models namespace." But you added a using for "Treehouse.Models.VideoGame" instead.

Ok. I fixed that. but the error is still the same:

Bummer! Did you remove the 'ViewBag.Title' property assignment to 'Video Game Detail'?

I removed, I got it back, I assigned to DisplayText, and many other useless intents and keep getting this error. No idea what they want or what is it that I am doing wrong. Not getting compile errors.

Oh, I thought you were on task 1! For your task 2 code you have "model" (lower-case "m") instead of "Model" (capital "M"). Only the model directive should have lower case.

Also the semicolon at the end of the line setting "PageTitle" seems to be misising.
