A screenshot is a picture of what is on a computer screen at a particular time, so I think there should be at least an article(the/a) before the 'screenshot'.

According to the meaning of your sentence, the most possibly appropriate one should be: "What is the name of the game in the screenshot?", since the speaker is asking about what the name of the game is and hence he/she should indicate clearly which game's name in which screenshot.

Apart from the lapse with 'screenshot', The words 'name', 'game' are bound to be countable by the intended meaning.
