Rorys approach was different, taking a leaf out of one of his favourite games. The game’s most memorable lesson for Rory was blackmail.

Is the apostrophe in this case correct?

    The apostrophe in game's is correct, but you should have one in Rory's at the start of your question. – Michael Harvey Apr 14 at 19:25

Yes, it is a genitive. Whose most memorable lesson? The game's.

Whose can be considered to work with things, too.

Thanks to @MichaelHarvey: Also at the beginning, there should be an apostrophe. Whose approach? Rory's.
