Super Mario Asp.net MVC

What is wrong with my code?

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {

    var ViewBag.Title = "Super Mario 64";
    var ViewBag.Description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
    var ViewBag.Characters = new string[]
    {
        "Mario",
        "Princess Peach",
        "Bowser",
        "Toad",
        "Yoshi"
    };
            return View();
        }
    }
}

@{
    Layout = null;
}
