about the future of this quiz series

By the time this year is over, I will have organised these video game quizzes for a full decade. (and the Metacouncil has been a part of it for more than four years).

I wouldn't have thought that a hobby I started once in a melancholy winter (actually just to distract myself) would accompany me for such a long time - and this year it will be exactly 100 episodes.

That's such a nice round number, I'd like to leave it at that... which means that my quiz series will come to an end this year.

A better programmer would have automated it all with scripts, a better businessman would have monetised it somehow... I'm none of those things, unfortunately, and the effort is just too much in the long run. So I hope we can all have fun with the last ten episodes this year before I start looking for a new hobby in December. :)


...and about the current round:
114 people are already on it, three from here.
Valdien Wibblewozzer FunnyJay mssq freshVeggie KainXVIII xxr Bufbaf ...how about it? :giggle:

Today (28.2.), is the last day before the deadline... so it is time to join the last February quiz: Video Game Quiz - February - Open World
Damn, sad to hear that this'll be the last year for quizzes. I look forward to them every month and find it to be a nice break from all the other typical everyday things. That's for all the hard work you've put into these.

Anyway, submitted my answers! Missing 2.

My other deep interest besides videogames is quizzing.
You brought about some of the best gaming quizzes I've ever experinced. Kudos to such an insane number!

Please do archive your quizzes somewhere (with help of other folks) into a website or something. So that when people search for vg-trivia, they are able to find it and know who made them as well 😁

Hey, thank you so much for all the kind words! :kissing-face-with-closed-eyes:
We still have the entire year ahead of us, I just wanted to let everyone know in advance.

One thing to consider: Have you ever thought about uploading old quizzes to a site like Sporcle?
Please do archive your quizzes somewhere (with help of other folks) into a website or something.
I will look for some way of conserving the quizzes. :) I don't know Sporcle, but I will check it out!

February Quiz - Answers & Score

So, this is the last year I'm doing the monthly videogame quiz. That means you have just witnessed the very last February round! With over 150 players we also set a participation record. Was it the theme, or was it maybe easier than usual? Anyway, I'm happy and hope the remaining nine quizzes will be just as numerous! :)

Before we get started, here's a quick look at the vote: "how was your 2023 so far?"



That doesn't look too bad! More than half of you are doing well or very well, and a third say "average". That leaves about 13% who unfortunately didn't have a good start to the new year... I wish them a quick turnaround.

Thanks Mr_Horizon for a fun quiz!
Always fun to see one of my old favorites Uncharted Waters - New Horizons featured. I've played that for countless hours on a SNES emulator back in the day.

Woop woop.
The ones I missed I really had no clue about, even #24 where I thought it looked familiar, but turns out I have never heard of that game. :D

March Quiz - Point & Click Adventures

Where last round you had to deal with many modern multiplatform titles, we now plunge into the golden age of classic graphic adventures. That means we're going deep into the 90s, but with less of a focus on console games. Grab your mouse and get ready to POINT & CLICK! :)

It was a bit strange to put this round together, as so many classics had already been used in all the other quizzes. So no Maniac Mansion, no Loom, no Full Throttle or Grim Fandango... but there are still many big names left for this month, and of course some obscure ones too.

Deadline is Friday the 31st of March, enter via Video Game Quiz - March - Adventure Games

Here's the quiz, have fun!

Yeah I don't think I'll do too well either. I like to think myself as a point & click enthusiast, but in reality I don't play them that much in the end and I bet I have quite a few blind spots for the classics too.

Good luck!

March Quiz - Clues #1

Point, click... use ANSWERS with GAMEQUIZ! The first thirty people have already managed to do this, with results ranging from "quite good" to "I'm sure they'll come up with more later." ;)
Some players were surprised about the number of modern games, so I wanted to mention that the majority (13) of the titles are from the 80s and 90s, the golden age of graphic adventures.

Here come the first clues:

1) Number 10 is a detective adventure by Sierra in which Roberta Williams was involved.
2) Fans give a famous game from the 80s an update in terms of graphics & gameplay... #13 is the result.
3) Title 18 is a free promotional game for a German company.
4) Game 20 is from a famous (and now closed) British studio, but among all its releases are only two adventures.

Deadline is Friday 31 March, enter via Video Game Quiz - March - Adventure Games.

Here is the quiz again, good luck :) link

March Quiz - Clues #2

You can't get any further? You can't find a walkthrough on the net and have already combined "everything with everything"? Well, maybe this post can help. :)

Not that many people have joined yet, 42 in total and nobody of them from this forum. Don't forget to submit, there is less than a week left!

Here are the final clues:

1) Some people write something at #4 that they might be better off putting at #19.
2) In title #11 all the characters are talking animals, it came out in the mid-90s for DOS, Amiga and Mac.
3) For games #6, #12 and #15, there were not only graphics done by hand, but quite a few frames and assets were digitised from real life footage.
4) The job of the alien protagonist of number 7 is to create crop circles on Earth.

Deadline is Friday 31 March, participation via Video Game Quiz - March - Adventure Games.

Here is the quiz again, good luck: link

March Quiz - Answers & Score

Exciting, exactly the same amount of players as last round - 153 people! How did that happen? :) Seems to have been a balanced round with answer rates from 10% to 100%.

A quick pie chart on the SoundFX survey, which unfortunately wasn't very informative:


Only 20% "yes" votes is a bit weak, it would have to be three times as many for me to do such a round again. That's why I'm taking a different approach now. Until the next quiz (i.e. for about a week) you can check out all the past sound quizzes at http://www.retrogamequiz.com. Then the "don't know" percentage should reduce and we'll repeat the poll with a clear YES/NO. :)

But now we start with the results... first the names of the games as text, then the pictures, then the high score.

1) Return to Monkey Island
Everybody knows Monkey Island. :)

Only 20% "yes" votes is a bit weak, it would have to be three times as many for me to do such a round again. That's why I'm taking a different approach now. Until the next quiz (i.e. for about a week) you can check out all the past sound quizzes at http://www.retrogamequiz.com. Then the "don't know" percentage should reduce and we'll repeat the poll with a clear YES/NO. :)
If your plan is to do the sound quiz based on the number of responses, then I believe that a simple "Yes or No" choice would suffice.

Anyway, I only managed to figure out 18 in total, so at least I got all my submitted answers right. Did better than expected considering I haven't played a single game on the list.

April Quiz - Super Mario

Since last week the new Super Mario Bros movie is out, how about we do a promo round to celebrate the dear plumber? :) We've already had Sega, Atari or Commodore as a theme.... and here's the (sort-of) Nintendo puzzle at last.

I was delayed over the Easter holidays, but I hope to be able to get this round online just before the 10th of April is over.

To avoid entries like "25x Super Mario", this time a clear announcement: You have to give the exact game! °_°

Only if at least 20% of all players make the same mistake in an answer you'll still score. So if 20 out of 100 people specify just "Super Mario Pottery Champion" or the famous third game instead of the correct answer "Super Mario Pottery Champion 2 redux", you might get points for that. Don't rely on it!

Deadline is Sunday the 30th of April, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/.

Here's the quiz, have fun :)

April Quiz - Clues #1

Just about 40 people are already playing, so let's a go, quiz time! A few voices would have liked a bigger focus on the 90s, but eleven games in this round were released between 1983 and 2000... okay, but admittedly the remaining fourteen came out in 2001 & later. Hopefully it will make life easier for the younger ones among you ;)

Here are the clues:

1) Title 15 is an "educational" game and the only one in this round with an official PC release.
2) The following consoles (Game Boy, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Switch) each have three games in this quiz.
3) Number 6 is a puzzle game for the N64.
4) Each row shows five different systems, for example the top row is Wii, Switch, Gamecube, N64 and Game Boy at the end. So since #6 is an N64 game, there can't be any other N64 titles in the second row.

And guys, AGAIN: you have to give the exact name of the game this time, the series probably won't do! °_°

April Quiz - Clues #2

It's a me, your clue post! ^_^ Sixty people are in, and twenty of them have seen the new Super Mario movie. Did any of you also go to the cinema for the old one from the 90s? I should have asked that too, such a missed opportunity...oh well.
You have to participate before the end of next week, there are only a few days left until this round is over.

Here are the last clues:

1) Three of the pictures are not actual gameplay, but instead show the cover of the game.
2) You won't find any of the "Super Mario Maker" games in this round.
3) Game 14 is the only 3DS title in this quiz, both Mario and his brother are playable.
4) Number 18 shows Mario in a puzzle game, but Luigi is nowhere to be seen in this title.

And guys, BE PRECISE: It needs to be the exact name. I know I said that there'd be "mercy points" if enough people make the same mistake, but this got more complicated than I expected and now I'M TAKING IT BACK. To compensate, I'll give you the following as a fifth clue:

5) In the following games, well over ten people miss their point because they are just a bit off: 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 11, 15.... plus one from the last row. Are you sure you are precise enough everywhere? ;)

April Quiz - Answers & Score

Oh dear, you're going to hate me for these results! Well over 500 entries resulted in no points, as it had to be the exact title of the game this round. Despite such a strict rule, a whole dozen of players managed to score full points. Impressive!

Briefly on the poll: 55% vote for a sound quiz, 45% against it... that's damn close to a 50/50 and not distinct enough for me to make the effort. Maybe there will be some kind of SoundFX bonus round. ;)

The new Super Mario Bros movie has been seen by 31% of all voters, and only 2% of them (3 votes) didn't like it. :) 25% don't want to see it in the first place, and the remaining 44% still plan to watch it eventually.

But now it's time to start with the results... first the names of the games as text, then the pictures, then the high score.

2) Paper Mario: Origami King.

I know I lost one to only saying Mario Artist, I didn't bother looking into the various versions since I didn't realize they had the same image but different colored M, but I really don't know what other one I missed the point on that I answered. I might have gone with Color Splash instead of Origami King? And that's on me for not checking the hints since that would have helped tell me which it was between the two.

Yes, the problem was indeed Paper Mario. And you left #25 blank. :)

I lost A LOT of points because I wasn't specific enough. Didn't have enough time to research this time either.
Sheesh, it's a massacre this time
I did a count! Parsnip lost one point due to the "exact title" rule.
Wibblewozzer and Valdien lost two, Megaapple and QFNS five ...and FreshVeggie and Funnyjay lost the most: six points. :face-with-head-bandage:

May Quiz - Flash Classics

In the year 2000 Macromedia Flash 5 is released, in which the programming language "ActionScript" is built in for the first time... At the latest now the time of Flash Games begins and flushes a wild mixture of crude chaos & great creativity onto desktop computers all over the world.

I'm sure some of you will roll your eyes at this one... do Flash games even deserve to get their own quiz?! But after last round's 100% polished games from Nintendo, I can't think of a better counter-programme than the unfiltered deluge from the games laboratory that was Macromedia Flash.

The time span is pretty much set this time, from 2000 to the year 2020, which was when eventually all those games just launched into a "Adobe Flash Player is no longer supported" message.

Deadline is Wednesday 31 May, enter via Video Game Quiz - May - Flash Classics

Here is the quiz, have fun! :)

Yeah, wasn't huge into the Flash game scene. I can immediately recognize around eight but otherwise have no real idea on the rest and will have to rely on Google word salad.

I had thought about a Flash round for a while, but was hesitant as it's quite niche, especially for the retro crowd...°_° Average scores right now are LOW, let's see what the clues can do?

Here, you get one for free! :)

1) The games 1, 2, 3, 9, 15, 18 have already left Flash behind them and appeared on other platforms, either as ports or sequels. Okay, #3 only made it to Steam, but regardless.

May Quiz - Clues #1

Now I've officially done it, the world is coming to an end. Apart from a few "yeah, just like back in school!" voices, the reaction to this round is quite bad, even more intense than I expected. ;) Well, even though this is the worst quiz round ever created... 35 people are playing so far, I hope the following clues persuade a few more. :D

Here are the first clues:

1) The following games have left the Flash platform behind through ports or sequels: the whole first row, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20 ...pretty much half!
2) The #3 and #12 are games to well-known Flash animated series, in which a single character (faceless grey guy or kung-fu stick figure) creatively fights hordes of enemies.
3) A popular Nintendo fighting game was very freely recreated on Flash with #6.
4) In game #9 you control a ninja and have to pass countless difficult platforming rooms.

Deadline is Wednesday 31st May, participation via Video Game Quiz - May - Flash Classics

Here is the quiz again, good luck :) link

May Quiz - Clues #2

Soon it will all be over, Flash will be switched off for good and this round will end! Next Wednesday is the deadline, so you only have a few days left. Over fifty players have already submitted - what about you? :)

Here are the last hints:

1) Number 7 is a helicopter game that is played with just a single button.
2) In #11 you have to crush the castle pictured with the skilled use of a catapult.
3) Game 16 is a standard single player RPG where you go on an adventure quest, slay many monsters and level up.
4) The unusual thing about the picture shown at #8 is that this is the only level the game has.

Deadline is Wednesday the 31st of May, please join via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/.
