Update the Detail.cshtml view to use the ViewBag data.

I Can not figure Out The Problem..

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();
        }
    }
}
Detail.cshtml
@{
    Layout = null;

<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>

            <ul>
                @foreach (var character in @ViewBag.Characters)
                {
                    <li>character</li>
                }

You have to use @ on razor variables within html. Also, try removing the @ before ViewBag.Characters.

Try this :

@foreach (var character in ViewBag.Characters) { <li>@character</li> }
