It says to assign the Title value of the view using the model variable but still not working.

Replace the ViewBag.Title using the model properties.

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

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {
            var vidGame = 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(vidGame);
        }
    }
}
Detail.cshtml
@model Treehouse.Models.VideoGame

@{
    ViewBag.Title = 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
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 + ")";
            }
        }
    }
}

You're really close! The instructions say to "Replace the ViewBag Title, Description, and Characters property references with the respective Model properties.", but they do not say to replace ViewBag.PageTitle. Put that one back the way it was and you'll pass.
