Now it's time to work on the CREATOR variable. The first thing we need to do is return a new VideoGame in the createFrom

Can anyone please send the answer? I am stuck in here.. Thanks!

VideoGame.java
public class VideoGame implements Parcelable {

    public String mTitle = "";
    public int mYear = 0;

    public VideoGame() {
        // intentionally blank
    }

    // getters and setters omitted for brevity!

    @Override
    public int describeContents() {
        return 0;
    }

    @Override
    public void writeToParcel(Parcel dest, int flags) {
        dest.writeString(mTitle);
        dest.writeInt(mYear);
    }

    public VideoGame(Parcel in) {
        // Task 1 code here!
      mTitle = in.readString();
      mYear = in.readInt();
    }

    public static final Creator<VideoGame> CREATOR = new Creator<VideoGame>() {
        @Override
        public VideoGame createFromParcel(Parcel source) {
            // Task 2 code here!
          VideoGame videoGame = new VideoGame(source);
            return VideoGame;
        }

        @Override
        public VideoGame[] newArray(int size) {
            // Task 3 code here!
            return new VideoGame[0];
        }
    };
}

Hello Zubeyr,

The video game variable is named "videoGame" but you are returning "VideoGame", the name of the class. Since variable names are case-senstive in Java, you need to return "videoGame".

I hope this helps.
