July Quiz - Answers & Score

The bonus question wasn't particularly popular this round, only half of you (49%) even submitted a suggestion. There were multiple mentions for Uncharted (22%) as well as Tomb Raider, Witcher, Indiana Jones, Myst (with 2% each).

Only 8.6% guessed correctly:



It was the close-up of this treasure map from the 80s classic "The Goonies". No points were awarded for this, it wasn't a computer game after all! :p

Well then, let's start the evaluation: First the names of the games as text, then the pictures, then the high score table.


1) Doom 64
Not as iconic as I thought ;) Whereas I quite like "Elite" and "Thrust" as entries, from the vector graphics and genre influence (as "Elite clones" and "Thrust clones" were a thing after all) one can understand that.
Answer rate: 71%
Other suggestions: Metal Gear Solid, Deus Ex, Turok, System Shock, Thrust, Elite

2) Super Mario Galaxy 2
Everyone recognises the Mario head, therefore the easiest game of this round.
Answer rate: 95%
Other suggestions: -

3) Dota 2
I thought everyone had seen this diagonal "three paths and a river through the middle" map (which has remained roughly the same since the first game) by now.
Answer rate: 58%
Other suggestions: 9x League of Legends, StarCraft, Command & Conquer, Smite, Rogue, Supreme Commander, Warcraft, X-Com

Na na na na na na na Batman symbol!
Answer rate: 80%

It's been a very long time since I've seen Goonies. I probably haven't sat down and watched through it in 25+ years. Also, did you put that picture together yourself because I zoomed in thinking it was a movie but then noticed the fingers look like older 3D so I assumed it was from some FMV sort of cutscene in a game and didn't bother looking any further.

Still, really great category. It had some good challenge and nice variety. I am grumpy that I looked at Silent Service several times thinking maybe I was missing something and completely forgot about Silent Hunter. I also specifically looked up Midnight Club 3 feeling pretty certain it was that and completely forgot there was another after that on the next generation. I should have had that! Battle Engine Aquila I recognized, having seen screenshots and probably video before, but I didn't know it enough to have any strong direction to look to find it.

August Quiz - DOS Classics #4

Did anyone notice that the new quiz went online yesterday? No? Well, this is the official announcement. :)

After the last round of "gaming maps" was a wild mix across all decades and systems, this month it will be 100% retro again. The fourth installment of the DOS classics is here, and that brings us back to the personal computers of the 80s and 90s, with their lowres pixel graphics and crude polygons.

Of course, some of the games are multiplatform titles, so our console & home computer fans won't be left completely empty-handed. :)

As a bonus question you may again wish for something, because while last year I unfortunately failed to create a "make-a-wish" puzzle due to sloppy planning, I promise you for 2022: The last quiz of the year is made by you!

But now back to the current round: Deadline is Wednesday 31 August, participation via Video Game Quiz - August - DOS Classics #4.

Here's the quiz, good luck:

August Quiz - Clues #1

+++
Heads up, there's SOMETHING TO BE WON - mods from the "Gaming Village" forum are offering a prize for the top 3, namely download codes for the latest version of game #1. :D

Thank you: Foren-Übersicht
+++

Now back to the our usual program. :)
Just over thirty players so far and in many forums people are moaning "...but I don't know any DOS games!". And even if not all games have been recognised yet, I say: Don't worry, only six titles in this round are actual DOS exclusives, there are twelve games that were also released on the Amiga, and there are console ports of at least as many. I wonder if I could have said "no excuse" instead of "don't worry" ;)

If my words of encouragement are not enough, here are the first hints:

1) In title #2 you fly through mines on other planets & fight the local robots.
2) In the early 90s game #8 you travel through space & try to find allies in the uprising against nasty aliens who have enslaved humanity.
3) In #5 you ski, most people know the version for Windows.
4) There are several point & click graphic adventures in this round, e.g. #7. Known as a Windows game, but there is also a DOS demo of it.

Deadline is Wednesday 31st August, enter via Video Game Quiz - August - DOS Classics #4.

Here is the quiz again - good luck: link

August Quiz - Clues #2

Over fifty people are already playing - how about you? :) The answer rates are between 86% and 2%.... I hope to help the latter with this post, some titles are (without some classification to assist) once again very tricky.

Well then! Enough talk, here come the last hints:

1) The 19 is a DOS exclusive graphic adventure from the late 90s.
2) Action platformer #12, released only for DOS & Amiga, has two graffiti sprayers as protagonists.
3) Number 9 is a turn-based strategy game with mercenaries.
4) 13, 14 and 15 all have a "Stone Age" setting.

Deadline is Wednesday 31 August, enter via Video Game Quiz - August - DOS Classics #4

Complete opposite for me. I only knew like four game names by sight but probably got like 10-12 with the help of hints and Googling around. But while I have general knowledge of older PC gaming I didn't really get into PC games until like 1999 or so.

September Quiz - First Person Shooters

I'm not on time, normally a new quiz starts on the tenth day of a month at the latest... but here we go: right hand on the mouse, left hand on WASD? Or would you rather use the analogue sticks on the controller?

No matter how you prefer to shoot your pixels at other pixels, this month we're looking at video games in a very particular way - via the barrels & crosshairs of assault rifles, plasma cannons and rocket launchers. Ready, aim, fire? :)


Deadline is Friday 30 September, enter via Video Game Quiz - September - First Person Shooters

Here's the quiz:

Maybe because of the sheer number of options in this category I'm barely recognizing any of the games above. Sure, I know the top row but that's nearly it. And I have a feeling this also will mean Google won't be kind this month as there's a ton of first person games and I know it's going to focus on only the most popular stuff as I try to figure stuff out.

Oh well, we'll see how it goes in the end.

September Quiz - Clues #1

The first 35 players have sent in their entries to identify the twentyfive games we are looking for.... No doubt a lot of first-person shooters were released between 1988 and 2023, so this round probably won't be a walk in the park. I wonder how high your answer rate will be? :)

Here are the first clues:

1) In title number 8, there are always four players.
2) Games 4 and 6 were developed by a pioneer of the fps genre.
3) Picture 7 shows a game that was only released for Xbox and Windows.
4) And last, #11 is a "near sci-fi" entry of a well-known series.

Deadline is Friday 30th September, enter via Video Game Quiz - September - First Person Shooters

Here's the quiz again - good luck! link

Need hint for number 25...

...because it looks like a waffle with eyes!

Got 23/25 so far, though.
Oh, I thought #25 was a gimme. Unless I'm wrong on what I think it is that feels like one that'll have a really high percentage of right answers.

Same. I frequently don't get many of the answers in these and I knew that one immediately. Maybe we're just weird though. LOL

The answer rate for #25 is currently at 34%, make of that what you will. :) I am very curious how high it'll be in the end, given it's assumed to be well-known but definitely niche at the same time as well. Probably harder for younger players, too. 🤷‍♂️

3) Number 12 is a licensed game based on a movie: you don't just shoot from the fps perspective, you also drive.
4) Numbers 15 and 16 are console games.

Deadline is Friday 30 September, enter via Video Game Quiz - September - First Person Shooters.

September Quiz - Answers & Score

126 players confirm it for me - there really are a hell of a lot of first-person shooters out there, and I could create two more puzzles from this round's incorrect submissions alone! I wonder which game in this round was the most guessed? One of the heavyweights of the shooter scene perhaps, so Halo, Doom, Quake or Half-Life? Nah, it's a newcomer that's not even ten years old. Scroll down and see for yourself which one it is. :)

Briefly on the bonus question - the background video is a really old Windows screensaver, called "3D Maze". 53% of you guessed that correctly too! There was no bonus point because some of the answers were a bit vague and I didn't want to be unfair.

But now let's start with the answers... first the names of the games as text, then the pictures, then the high score.

1) Halo 3
You got all the Halos wildly mixed up, but it's actually a picture from the third part.
Answer rate: 85%
Other suggestions: Destiny, Haze, Splitgate

2) Superhot: Mind Control Delete
The third entry of the stylish fps with the cool time control feature, and also the most guessed game of this round!
Answer rate: 92%
Other suggestions: Killer 7, Superliminal

3) Team Fortress 2
Who still remembers Valve's "Orange Box"?
Answer rate: 90%
Other suggestions: 4x Serious Sam, Borderlands, Fortnite, XIII

4) Quake 3 Arena
Maybe the answer rate would have been higher if I had taken the Sarge with the cigar as an opponent and not the funny eye?
Answer rate: 67%
Other suggestions: Daikatana, Doom, Serious Sam, Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Duke Nukem Land of the Babes, Fortnite, Silent Hill The Escape, The Legs have Eyes

5) Half Life: Blue Shift
This version of the Half Life story was even available for the Sega Dreamcast!
Answer rate: 91%

The "Dark Lord", final boss in the second DLC to Doom Eternal.
Answer rate: 65%
Other suggestions: 5x Destiny, Daikatana, Gobots, Metal Hellsinger, Painkiller, Unreal, Warhammer 40k

7) Titanfall
Even before Apex Legends, Titanfall Assault and Titanfall 2 - this game kicked it all off in 2014. Why did you guess "Gears of War" so often?
Answer rate: 42%
Other suggestions: 17x Gears of War, Armoured core, Halo, Hawken, Killzone, Resistance, Unreal Tournament

Answer rate: 48%

Answer rate: 54%
Other suggestions: Fallout, Resistance: Fall of Man, singularity, The Darkness

10) Dusk
Answer rate: 49%
Other suggestions: Witches, Medal of Honor, Painkiller, Blood, Clive Barker's Undying, Daikatana, Quake, SiN, Unreal

13) Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel
