If you don't know about  sporcle.com, you really should.  Here's a chance for all of us to prove (only to ourselves, of course) that we really are smarter than the next guy.  Sporcle: "mentally stimulating diversions".  A bunch of quizzes on all sorts of topics from the intellectual to the goofy - often both at the same time.

This link is to the "Can you name the main developers of these video game franchises?" quiz.

Fun! I got 21, about half just from typing in random developers. The other half I actually knew.

Nice going Jen.  I looked at the titles and didn't even try.

Here's another about 1990's video games, and this one has screenshots.  Should make it easier.

That one, I only got 13. I knew the Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Super Mario, but I didn't get credit because I didn't type the names in exactly.

I looked at the video game screeshots one and could only name about half a dozen. That's so sad. I did much better with the desserts (26 outta 30) and successfully named all 50 states. [Image Can Not Be Found]

I got 24/30 correct, and like others I would have gotten the Zelda and SimCity ones also except I couldn't figure out the full title name.  So really there were only 4 I had no clue on: Pokemon, Goldeneye, Need For Speed, and one other I can't remember the name of.  Yes, I was definitely a gamer of the 90's, hehehe...

Hmph.  17/30.  I'm sad that Myth is the least recognized game in the list--it's easily one of the best with its great story, gameplay, and groundbreaking 3d graphics.  Hmph.

I missed Duke Nukem 3D, Myth, Half-Life and Need for Speed. Pretty good though, I thought, since I've never been a PC gamer.

29. I missed Burnout, Gran Turismo, King of Fighters, Tony Hawk, and Lego <whatever>.

I can forgive myself for missing the first four, but come on... Traveler's Tales. Damn my human memory!

Oh, and just to clarify, I was talking about the 90's games w/ screenshots quiz. Not the developers. I didn't do nearly as good on that one 🙂
