Video Game Trivia Roundup (Part 1)

Test your gaming knowledge

I find that the internet has been void of challenging video game related trivia. Therefore, I recently took it upon myself to develop an in-depth trivia system to challenge gamers' knowledge. Here, you'll find links to the first 10 quizzes that I made so please, enjoy testing how much you know about your favourite games!

What's all this, then?

Over the past month or so, I've been working tirelessly on carefully crafting an online quiz system that gamers can use to test their gaming knowledge. Each quiz contains 10 multiple choice trivia questions and upon completing a quiz, you can see how well you did via an in-depth results page. This page contains information such as how many people took the quiz and what the average score is as well as what you got correct and incorrect with detailed explanations. You can even see the percent of people who chose each answer. Pretty comprehensive, right? Anyway, you can conveniently share your results with intuitive social media share buttons that'll automagically include a cool picture with your score on it. There are also code snippets that you can use to embed your results on forums and blog posts. Whatever you can think of, I'm confident that this trivia system will do it and leave you impressed. Enough with the introduction, let's take a look at all of the quizzes that are available as of writing this.

Super Mario Odyssey

These first six quizzes launched with the trivia system on November 13th. I wanted Super Mario Odyssey to be one of the first quizzes since it's such an awesome game and has a lot of content to ask questions about. Admittedly, this quiz is probably the least challenging one but I figured that Super Mario Odyssey is a pretty easy game so maybe the quiz should be somewhat easy, too.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is probably my favourite game of all time so how can I not write one of the first quizzes about it? This quiz is super-tough and will require a dedicated fan such as myself to ace it. Good luck!

Super NES RPGs

If I remember correctly, I wrote this quiz first. As a huge fan of 16-bit RPGs, I just had to put this together. You'll probably be impressed by how difficult it is but the explanations are sure to teach you at least a few interesting facts that you didn't know going in.

Super NES Classic Edition

Speaking of SNES, just like with Super Mario Odyssey, the Super NES Classic Edition (AKA the SNES Mini) is new and exciting. However, I bet you can't ace this extremely challenging quiz about its featured games. Your knowledge of the Super Famicom version will be tested, too. Anyway, over 500 people completed it as of writing this and the average score is only 4.75.

The Angry Video Game Nerd

I've been an AVGN fan for years and find the history of the series to be very interesting. In order to ace this quiz, you'll need to know everything from his humble beginnings to the movie and even a little about the Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures video games.

Mega Man 2

I'm a huge Mega Man fan and almost every retro gamer loves Mega Man 2 so why not show that love by trying to ace this quiz? You'll be surprised by how little you actually know about this 2D action 8-bit masterpiece. That is, unless you prove me wrong.

Shantae

This and the next quiz launched on November 25th. I wanted to have a little indie representation because I absolutely love indie games and Shantae is one of my favourites. To be clear, this quiz is about the Shantae series as a whole and not just the original game. Anyway, I'm sure some hardcore fans can ace this quiz but it can be quite tricky.

Konami shoot 'em ups

Another genre I wanted to represent is shoot 'em ups. I absolutely adore the classic Konami shmups and there's a great deal of interesting trivia to be discovered within them. Be sure to read the explanations on the results page because you'll learn some very cool facts that'll make you the nerdiest person at the party.

Super Mario Bros. 3

I published these final 2 quizzes just last night so they're nice and fresh. Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of the best (if not the best) Mario games. It's the first NES game that I ever played and I still play it to this day. Make sure you're familiar with all the world themes, bosses, and mini-games because you'll need that knowledge in order to master this quiz.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Finally, here's Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. It's probably my favourite entry in the series and there's a lot of trivia within its complex narrative. I tried not to make every question about the story but it's just so engaging that I ended up making most of the quiz about it. Did you pay attention to the intricate plot? Well, you can easily find out; just click the link below.

Phew, that's all for the launch of our trivia system. I hope you enjoy taking these 10 quizzes. I'm going to keep publishing trivia quizzes regularly so keep an eye out for new ones. Also, feel free to provide feedback and let me know what you think of these quizzes and of the system as a whole. I'm always looking to improve things around here to make Video Chums better for our awesome visitors.
