Using only generic questions (none of which involved the game crash bandicoot) it managed to guess Dr. N. Gin in one try. Le sigh
Edit: It got Mr. Game and Watch too. Egads, foiled again
I beat it. I thought of Khaymen from The Vampire Chronicles.
He came up with someone totally off the wall on the first guess. Wasn't even a vampire, it was someone off of Final Fantasy, or Dragonball, or some shit. Forget his name, had that kind of a "look" to him.
Second guess was Louis, from The Vampire Chronicles. I told it it was wrong, so then it asked some more questions.
Next guess was Marius from The Vampire Chronicles. While quite close, it was still TOTALLY off the mark, as Khaymen existed many thousands of years before Marius.
So while it's accurate with movie descriptions, it's bad at novels I guess. Unless they're the main roles of said novel.
It did ask me after it didn't figure out who I meant, to tell it who I meant, which I did, then asked for their relevance. So the next time someone tries him, who knows. Genie might get it.
My SECOND character to use was Roland Deschain of Gilead, from the Gunslinger series.
Which he got correctly upon the first guess. The last question was "Does your character use guns?" Which made me feel confident it knew who the Hell I was speaking about.
My THIRD Character it also did not know, although it did guess three bears. The first guess was a "Brown Bear" the second guess was "The California Republic" and the third guess was "A Polar Bear." The character I was thinking of at the time was Shardik the voice of God from the novel "Shardik."

Oh he's good....
Mountains rise in the distance stalwart as the stars, fading forever.
Roads ever weaving, soul ever seeking the hunter's mark.
Formerly Ryngo Blackratchet
Mind blown. Got Ronald Niedermann from the Millenium Trilogy (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) on the second guess.
14 Questions to get Commander Shepard, although I was looking for Andronikos Revel, Pirate-captain companion of the Sith Inquisitor.
Edit: 21 Questions to get Atton Rand from KOTOR II
Edit: 29 Questions to get Canderous Ordo from KOTOR
Edit: Defeated him when he guessed Jacob Taylor from Mass Effect

That was disappointing he couldn't guess John Arch from Fates Warning and Arch / Mattheos. So I had to introduce him to a new character.
Even got Lady/Pauline from the Donkey Kong arcade game [17 guesses]. I thought that she would be pretty obscure.
He didn't get "Papa John"
