C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Controllers Using Action Result Types

I believe I am doing everything right and I can't figure out what is the issue.

It says in the Detail method are you returning a call to the content and I feel like I am.

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {
            return new ContentResult ()
            {
                Content = "Welcome to the Video Game Detail page"
            };

        }
    }
}

The instructions say to "return the result of a call to the base controller's Content method.", but this code is constructing a new ContentResult object instead.

Since "Content" is a method, you'll need to pass the string as an argument, and be sure to use the exact string given in the instructions, including punctuation!
