C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Views Using ViewBag

Not sure what I'm missing/why my code won't pass...

It's saying I haven't removed variables and replaced with ViewBag, but I have.....not sure what I've missed.

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;

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

            return View();
        }
    }
}

    Layout = null;
}

I see two issues

  • the h5 header was changed (but should not have been)
  • the term inside the loop got changed (an "s" was added to the end of "character")
