I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions exactly, but it's still giving me a Bummer message

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

Remove it to the video game detail?

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

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 = Model.DisplayText;
}

<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
using System.Web.Mvc

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 + ")";
            }
        }
    }
}

Nathan,

The code challenge was expecting you to leave the assignment of the ViewBag.PageTitle property to the string literal "Video Game Detail". You weren't alone in trying to change the assignment to Model.DisplayText, so I updated the code challenge to accept either solution.

Thanks, James

@model Treehouse.Models.VideoGame

@{ Model.DisplayText = "Video Game Detail"; }

<h1>@Model.Title</h1>

<h5>Favorite: @Model.Favorite</h5>

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

<h5>Characters:</h5> <div> <ul> @foreach (var character in Model.Characters) { <li>@character</li> } </ul> </div>

this isn't working where did i get wrong?
