November Quiz- Clues #3

Say, is everyone on holiday already? The last weekend of November is upon us and just fifty people have sent in their entries! One of them from this forum. Now then, because it's almost Christmas.... I bring you presents in the form of a third serving of hints.

And in accordance with the principle of reciprocity, you now have to give me something too, so please join the game.

Are you ready for the (really!) last batch of clues?

Clues #3:
1) The first letters of the first three rows, strung together, make the words McAbgast Xatioby.... no, unfortunately I haven't found a nice anagram!
2) Number 7 is originally a game for the Xbox 360, a later update also appeared on other systems.
3) There are also films and/or series for games 2, 8 and 10.
4) Title 12 uses several songs by a well-known black metal band in its soundtrack.

Deadline is next Tuesday the 30th November, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the quiz one last time, good luck: https://i3.lensdump.com/i/g45YnH.png

Well, I can tell 1 is a Metroid but no idea which & 2 is clearly a Castlevania, @Mr_Horizon .... I don't know most of them, anyway

@BruceCM You are supposed to enter these via the survey form (the link) and not open in the thread, but I'll do that for you this time. You have two points!

Lol, well, I wasn't going to bother with only the 2, @Mr_Horizon .... Especially since I wasn't sure which specific games I'm sure I must have played some of the others but not most of them

The forum seems a bit unstable. Maybe it recognizes @Mr_Horizon as a spammer because of the long posts?

Mr_Horizon

No clue. I will wait for antdickens to have a look over the weekend, if not I'll do the "piece by piece" approach from last time on monday.

Mr_Horizon

Dogorilla

Hooray!

I've never heard of Grime, I only got it by looking up 'black hole head metroidvania' or something along those lines. Also I'm disappointed that Scooby-Doo: Shaggy's Special Snack is not a real game.

Mr_Horizon

@antdickens Thank you very much. Say, is there something I can do about this in the future? Can you tell me what exactly triggers this error (exceeding character limit, amount of pictures etc), maybe I can work around it?

I'm asking because next year I'll post more monthly quizzes, which will all have a large "results & high score" post.

FINAL HIGH SCORE 2021

Once again a quiz year has passed, and I'd like to announce the year-end-ranking of all the 25 participating forums.

How do you score points for your forum?
Untitled SCORE HIGH - get placed in the Top 10.
Untitled ENDURANCE - participate in at least five quizzes without a break.

More details: https://i2.lensdump.com/i/r8vCPx.png

2021 FORUM RANKING
Untitled

The NintendoLife forum ("ntl" in the table) decreases its rank from 4 to 5, even though it has a better score than last year! This is because the hardcore gaming 101 ("hcg") as well as the old maniac forum ("mnc") gained ground more quickly. Still, you are doing very well.

So who scored your points? (1st number is points via high score, 2nd number is points via endurance)

@lifer (41+3)
@Dogorilla (0+4) (congrats on 44 rounds without a break!)

Table from 2020: https://i3.lensdump.com/i/r8vi4F.png
Table from 2019: https://i2.lensdump.com/i/r8vWtr.png
Table from 2018: https://i1.lensdump.com/i/r8v8b7.png

Forums that joined the game this year: Atari Age, Fontgeek, NTower, play3 and IGN Italia. Welcome!

Forums that left us this year: Play3, IGN Italia, 4Players, PCX and Videogameszone. The latter three were with us for years, sad to see you go!
