Okay, here's a quiz I made a few months ago, for another forum but people weren't interested because teh questions were too hard (pretty silly since most questions are easy for older gamers).

Anyway here you go:

A. General Questions

1. Where did the developing studio, famous for games such as Populous and Theme Park, get its name? OK!

2. Who was the creator of the (in)famous gaming series which featured actors such as Margot Kidder and Kevin McCarthy? Tip: he also played the lead character in this series. OK!

3. Which “house” was invented by Westwood and didn’t exist in the original Dune series?OK!

4. What kind of animal is Boo (FULL name)?OK!

5. Which popular game character featured in the German video clip of Männer sind Schweine?OK!

6. Which artist was responsible for box covers of games like Monkey Island and Sam & Max?OK!

7. Which famous music was used in the “bunny minefield” scene in Full Throttle?

8. Let’s stick with Full Throttle for a while longer: which band was responsible for most other music in the game?OK!

9. Which Formula 1 team aided with the creation of Grand Prix 3?

10. The creator of Monkey Island left Lucas Arts to start his own company which had a huge RTS hit. What’s the company’s name?OK!

11. What actor played “Jack” in Zork Grand Inquisitor?OK!


B. Game Questions

1. What was the first “real” MMORPG? (1997-1998)OK!

2. What was the game that Tomb Raider originally got compared to but due to many release date slips, ended up being released over a year after Tomb Raider?

3. Which classic game has, when looked up in the dictionary, as explanation : “Any of various small, thickset rodents inhabiting northern regions and known for periodic mass migrations that sometimes end in drowning.”OK!

4. What is the name that was attached to a game rendition of a popular fairy tale written by Lewis Carroll?OK!

5. Which game used a famous “one liner” from the movie They Live?OK!

6. Many argue about which game was the real first First Person Shooter. Most say Wolfenstein 3D but which earlier game by the same company laid the real foundations?OK!

7. Sometimes games use acronyms as title (KKND, GTA) to make an otherwise lenghty title snappy – but which game got its “long name” banned, being forced to stick with the 3 letter acronym and made allusions to this in their advertising campaign?OK!

8. In which adventure game did the protagonist confuse man and animal with his introduction “Hi, I’m joking”?OK!

9. Which game, based on the Wing Commander engine, could be described as a “story based Elite”?OK!

10. Which game allowed you to peek through windows of a large house using a telescope, having to find clues as to who’s a/the murderer?OK!

11. After Peter Molyneux left Bullfrog, they made a sequel to one of the games he originally designed. Which game?

B1 is wrong, all the rest is correct.

For B1: clarifying the question, it's the first game that used the term MMORPG.

Then you probably mean The Realm? Neverwinter Nights is a possibility too, but this is all a matter of your opinion and your view on what qualifies as "massive" and "RPG."

Oh. And please tick the answered ones to the first post, so it'll be easier to find the ones still unsolved.

B5: Duke Nukem 3D

B9: Privateer

C2: Buzz Aldrin's Race into Space

No :P NWN is from 2002. We're talking about the game that created the foundation for others like Everquest, World of Warcraft, etc.

And B5 and B9 are correct.

C2 is a great guess, but think FPS game
