August Quiz - Answers & Score

So, that's it (permanently) for the classics from the DOS years... where this category used to always ensure high numbers of participants, the fifth chapter has unfortunately become one of the more sparsely attended rounds of the year with 118 players, same as the much reviled Flash quiz. :D

This time a whole nine people got full points, I'm impressed - but my respect goes especially to the four people who sent in their answers even though they weren't sure about any game and didn't get any points at all. :p

I'm sure the next round will be more accessible.

Briefly on the additional question - your remake requests were very numerous, but the following titles were mentioned most often:

6x Ultima
4x Commander Keen
3x Fallout

Well, who holds the rights? Maybe write to them? After all, clearly the demand is there. ;)


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

1) Carmaggedon
A well-known series and a very clear picture - the most frequently guessed title of this round still does not reach an 80% answer rate!
Answer rate: 79%
Other suggestions: Breath of the Wild, Death Rally

2) Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold
Apogee, the first... I thought that Wolfenstein 3D couldn't be the only "pre-Doom" first-person shooter that everyone remembers, but I guess I was wrong. ;)
Answer rate: 65%
Other suggestions: 18x Wolfenstein, Doom, Myth

3) Silent Service 2
A lot of people recognised it as a submarine game, but then got the details wrong. "Silent Hunter" came later in the 90s, "Silent Scope" is the one with the sniper. :D
Answer rate: 64%
Other suggestions: 6x Battleships, Silent Scope, Silent Hunter, Sea Wolf, Stealth, Red Storm Rising, Fast Attack, Das Boot, Aces of the Deep

4) Magic Carpet 2: The Netherworlds
The flying carpet suggests an Arabian background, in fact it is the successor of Bullfrog's carpet action game from 1995.
Answer rate: 76%
Other suggestions: Aladdin, Last Ninja, Prince of Persia

5) Transport Tycoon
Answer rate: 74%
Other suggestions: 4x Sim City, 4x Sim City 2000, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Holiday Island, Industry Giant

Other suggestions: Another World, Legend of Kyrandia, Mixed-up Mother Goose, Nutcracker

8.) Alien Carnage

Answer rate: 42%
Other suggestions: 4x Microsoft Flight Simulator, Stunt Island, Aces of the Luftwaffe, Pilot Wings

10) The Pandora Directive

No "oh duh" games this time, Krondor might have been doable if the screencrop had included any of the portraits. :D
Same with Might and Magic 3 too actually, I was so certain that it must be some low brow Wolf3D engine game based on that enemy design and 1st person perspective that I didn't even consider a turn based dungeon crawler.

Yup, 100% expected Might and Magic 3 to be some random Wolf3D clone that just had a bunch of pervy art or something. And agreed that there was really nothing I was close to being on the right track for the handful I skipped but had tried to find. In the bottom two rows I got Monster Bash and Dune and the only one I even tried to find for a couple minutes was Ultima 6 but quickly gave up and didn't even look up anything for 19-25.

I thought Might & Magic 3 looked like one of the Marathon games that Mandalore recently made videos about. Art style seemed to match.

Damnit!So it was Lord British!I recognized that pink king, but I was so certain that the Realms of Arkania pic was Ultima Pagan...
I can't see a pink king anymore without thinking of Ultima. ;)

You are not alone, several players thought it to be some sort of trashy fps!

September Quiz - Halloween Horror

The supermarket displays leave no doubt - since the first of September everything has been geared towards Halloween. Do you all have enough pumpkins, orange buckets, plastic spiders and cardboard bats yet?
This September my quiz series follows the trend, similar to the zombie and spider puzzles we had many years ago. Accordingly, all signs point to Scary & Horror: 25 games that want you to be scared... a few from before 2000, and many more recent ones. Will you dare to keep your eyes open and recognise them all? :)

And what's up with the strange bonus question? o_O

Deadline is Saturday, 30th September, enter via Video Game Quiz - September - Halloween Horror

Here's the quiz... you can do it! :)

September Quiz - Clues #1

Some of you have already noticed, we are actually a month early for a Halloween round. I blame the supermarkets, they confused me with their sudden plastic spiders and pumpkins!
Hopefully the current quiz will confuse you less. The first 25 players are already in, and now I'm helping you out a bit. :)

Here are the first clues:

1) Image 12 shows the first game of a four-part series & is considered to be one of the best horror games of all time.
2) In game 6 you take on lots of supernatural enemies.
3) Number 19 is a Dreamcast game.
4) Only one game of this round was released in the 80s, and a whole 19 had their release after the year 2000. The other five somewhere in between. ;)

Deadline is Saturday 30th of September, enter via Video Game Quiz - September - Halloween Horror.

2) Game 11 is a survival horror game on the ps1, the second part of a trilogy.
3) The pixel soup of number 15 is a Sega Saturn game, but the title also appeared for other systems.
4) Ten games in this round are from the 2010s, and six are from the current decade.

Turns out I actually recognized quite a few right away and have been able google-fu some of the other ones. I'm only missing one at the moment and even that one I'm 99% sure I know it, but can't place it. It's killing me. :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:

edit:
Did it, hahaa.

I'm invincible!

Submitted. Going for my fairly standard 15ish. This time I submitted some guesses which I rarely ever do but I just knew I wasn't going to spend more time searching so I figured what's the harm!

This one I can thank vtuber clips on YouTube since that's the only time I've seen it played but once you've seen a little bit of it that one is easy to spot.

I searched that Scorn image with both Returnal and Scorn, couldn't find a match, and took a 50-50 guess thinking it looked more Returnal than Scorn. Oops.

Also the last two I knew looked familiar, was certain I had seen them, but didn't guess. And now it makes sense since I beat Blood Curse back when it was newer and I've certainly seen Sweet Home stuff over the years. But usually by the time I reach the last row I'm ready to wrap it up and rarely do much Googling so I didn't spend any time trying to find the answers. Should have gotten those two though, oh well.

Woohoo!

I was missing #24, Siren Blood Curse at the end there. Originally I was sure it was the last boss of Deadly Premonition in its first form but after refreshing my memory a bit it definitely was not that.
Then I simply thought about what series is missing, thought of Siren and did some successful googling.

Yeah I had never heard of that one either, but googling for 'horror game big blue hand' was effective. :toucan:

I submitted the answer as Deadly Premonition even though I looked up screenshots and was 99% certain it wasn't that (just vaguely similar). But since I had no better guess I figured what's the harm.

November Quiz - Board & Card Games

After a month's break, here comes Quiz #99... as chosen by you in the last round, it's about board games in digital form - sometimes you'll see direct conversions, and sometimes just titles that where in some way inspired by physical games. :)

So, similar to the "movie license" or "comic license" quizzes from previous years, you can get a whole lot of points with some knowledge from outside of computer games. :)

There is also a bonus question: Which board game was used as a background for the intro image?


Deadline is Thursday the 30th of November, enter via Video Game Quiz - November - Board & Card Games.

Here's the quiz... take turns clockwise, grab your dice and start! :)

Looks like I'll do very poorly! But also a potentially easier search topic so I might be able to find many I don't know. My typical goal is around 15 so we'll see if I manage that.

I know like maybe 3 off the top of my head, and maybe the bonus question. Lots of googling ahead.

November Quiz - Clues #1

Half the month is over, fifty players are already in. Not bad, but there's still a lot of room at the table and nobody has scored full points - sit down, grab a dice and join in! ^_^

Here are the first clues:

1) Game 3 is from this decade, the award-winning first title from a new German game company - here we had the video game first, then the board game.
2) Title number 7 is a well-known children's game where you control a hippopotamus.
3) If you like Japanese RPGs, you may have already seen the card game in picture 9. This title is available as an RPG mini-game and as a stand-alone online game.
4) In picture number 14, we see the ps2 spin-off of a strategy series in the form of a virtual board game.

The deadline is Thursday 30th of November, please participate via Video Game Quiz - November - Board & Card Games

Here's the quiz again... if it's your turn and you can't lay a card, you have to draw one! :) link

Oh my, Valdien and Parsnip skipped this round... thus ending a streak of 31 and 38 quizzes without a break, the longest ones of this forum! :unsure:

I hope you will still give me the honour on the final quiz though? :giggle:
Out of curiosity what is my streak at? Or if you plan on including player streaks into the final stat stuff I can wait until then.

Yeah, that's the risk of leaving it to the last minute I guess. :surrenderblob:
I ended being surprising busy the last few days of November. And when I got home super late on the 30th I looked at the quiz briefly but didn't submit anything, too tired to even think about it and kind of didn't want to submit a half assed answers anyway.
I was thinking about submitting something on the 1st in case it would still be in time, before you started to tally things up, but then forgot.

:rip:

Player streaks will indeed be part of the "final score", but I think yours might now be the longest at Metacouncil!

Round #100 starts on January 1st. :slightly-smiling-face:

January Quiz - Musicians

Here it is finally, the Riddle #100. o_O

In this round you have to recognise the game that the pictured musicians appear in - be it a guitar-wielding protagonist, a cool sci-fi DJ or the medieval band of a fantasy RPG. :)
There was some speculation about a special theme for the last round, but in the end I didn't follow through with any of these ideas - so no "Game Over" screens, no defeated player characters (I don't want to end with a corpse quiz :D) and no "best of" either.

Nevertheless, there is something special with this round, as you can win up to five (!) bonus points. :) You can see the first four in the entry form, but the fifth one is different:

If this forum manages to surpass its highest number of participants, every player from here gets a bonus point.

For the MetaCouncil this number is: TEN (March 2020)


For all this effort, there is also something to win this time:

1x Neo Geo Mini from the admins of the Maniac Forum
1x 50€ Mystery Box from "www.retroplace.com - Your marketplace for video games & consoles"
1x ATARI: Art and Design of Video Games. The translator Stephan Freundorfer is publishing the "Prince of Persia" diaries together with the game designer Jordan Mechner in April this year.

Prizes will be raffled among the top 50, legal recourse is excluded. :)


The deadline for entries is Wednesday 31st of January, please join via Video Game Quiz - January - Musicians

Here is the (last!) quiz:
