I can take being stumped on ‘Gods will be watching’ but losing half a point for a ‘dodgy’ version of Okami I didn’t know existed burns. Deeply.

Thanks for setting this up Mr H - great fun!

December Quiz - Hackers

So, what are we hacking today? The blast door to the mainframe? The memory chip of that android? A virtual server somewhere in cyberspace? Some killer AI gone rogue? Or are we just doing a fun hacking minigame or watch a "hacking..." progress bar?!

No matter if just a tech-savy sidekick character or the central gameplay/story element, hacking is our theme for December - the last quiz of the year.

It's gonna be a bit harder than the dog quiz, but I hope you'll have fun regardless.

Deadline is Monday the 31st of December, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com

Here is the quiz... good luck.

Don’t even have a clue on any of these. I can only hope that the hints make it more obvious.

@ReaderRagfish @PolarExperience: Yeah it's a harder one - difficult to get the mix right. But I will try to balance it with hints & clues on the weekends!

Don't forget you can always update your first entries later.

by the way, this is the result of last months poll:

11 people actually use their smartphone, wouldn't have thought. Also, tablet users scored the most points on average. Dig out your iPad, then you'll know more (statistically).

Guess I’m part of the 12.5% that use a smartphone for this. Neato.

December Quiz - Clues #1

Okay, so far there are 33 people trying their luck and knowledge this round, none of those from this community. Have you joined yet? Will you after this set of clues?

1) Several games are based on famous movie licenses: Number 2, 8 and 10.

2) The 17, 19, 21 and 25 are also license games, but the source material is very mixed... we have a Manga, toy line, offline-RPG and book license.

3) The oldest game (fifth row) was released in 1985, the newest title (third row) just came out in October this year.

4) Picture 9 shows a turtle.

5) Picture 11 shows a robot mechanic. He gives you an item that lets you hack and take over other robots.

Deadline is Monday the 31st of December, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com

Here is the quiz again... good luck.

December Quiz - Clues #3

Watch out folks, this quiz ends on monday - you only have the weekend left! 54 people are in so far, that's not bad. Only one of them is from this forum.

Christmas is over, and so are any excuses - come and join the last riddle of 2018!

1) Number 7 is not System Shock.

2) Borderlands is not in this quiz at all.

3) The same goes for Lawnmower Man.

4) To get a full point for number 17 you have to give me the name of the specific toy line this license game is about. The big brand name only gets you half a point.

5) Come on now, "the world" is not the correct answer for Game 19!

Deadline is Monday the 31st of December, join in via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here the quiz a last time - good luck & a happy new year!

@Mr_Horizon Disappointed there was no Paradroid

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@Dogorilla: Ah, my bad. With (dog)"Gorilla" in your username I immediately put you as a guy... and after a bit of wikipedia I feel pretty stupid, of course there's female Gorillas too.

@GrailUK: Yes, Paradroid was on the initial list, it pretty much invent the "hacking minigame" right? But I had used it just a few months prior in the Commodore quiz, so I decided against it. Would you have recognised the remake, Paradroid 90?

HIGH SCORES 2018

The year is over, and I'd like to announce some overall winners (and winning forums) from all the contestants and points of 2018.

As this quiz is a competition among several online forums (18 in total!), I'd like to start with the community ranking and explain how you score points for your forum.

Untitled SCORE HIGH

If you make it to the top 10 in any of my quizzes, you gather points for your forum:

Getting first place (by having the highest or generally full score) makes 5 points - a gold medal!
There can be more than one if several users have perfect results.
For place two you get 4 points. Silver!
For place three you get 3 points. Bronze!
Those who make it to rank four, five or six... they get 2 points. (iron medal)
And who at least makes it to seven, eight, nine or ten... that's a wood medal and worth 1 point.

Untitled ENDURANCE

Frequent participation also gets you points for your forum, that's how you can contribute even without lots of nerd knowledge.

If you join the quiz five times without a break, you get 1 point. I call it a half marathon.
Those that make it for ten quizzes without missing any (e.g. from mid 2017 to mid 2018) get 2 points - a full marathon.
As an addition, if you binge through the entire last year without leaving any riddle aside... that's even 3 points.
And for the most faithful, the MEGATON: 4 points for those that participated on 30 quizzes in a row.

If you say that's crazy - five users out of the almost 200 last year scored that prize.

  • -

Alright, this is how the participating forums have made it through the year:

A round of applause, 12th place for the NintendoLife Forum!

That's a bit below average, but still okay - you also got some stiff competition. Hey, you are even tied with the ResetEra. Get two more points in 2019 and you'll climb two spots...

The RetroGamer community is being excluded (too few participants), and the same goes for the VierPfeile forum (that score is the work of a single user, administrator Cebix). The RetroCanteen comes in as a new Challenger.

  • -

This abstract community score aside, who actually made the points?

The following users made it into the top 10s:

wood medal - 1 point - ReaderRagfish (SoundFX Quiz)
wood medal - 1 point - BrainOfGrimlock (Dog Quiz)

The second category is endurance... this is how your forum did:

3 points - Dogorilla
1 points - JoakimZ

And before I forget, here the winner of the last survey:
