A lot of them are a little too obvious. (the ones with the main characters clearly visible)

I really liked this, it was a great idea for a quiz. The only one I was hoping to see was "GAME OVER RETURN OF GANON" but I give you 5 sporcle bulbs nonetheless.
Aug 7th, 2010 at 22:37 GMT
Cadillacs and Dinosaurs eliminated (1.6% correct), including "GAME OVER RETURN OF GANON" :)

Legend of Zelda II should be accepted.
Aug 8th, 2010 at 22:50 GMT
I liked the quiz, but I would like to suggest the game over screen for Super Smash Bros for N64.
Aug 9th, 2010 at 03:19 GMT
For some of the games, maybe not need to have which game in the series, I mean like Earthworm Jim (don't need the 2), or Crash. Just something to think about, because I recognize the series and then just start typing random numbers anyways, more annoying than anything.
Aug 9th, 2010 at 09:57 GMT
You really seem to like sequels!
Aug 9th, 2010 at 15:45 GMT
Aug 9th, 2010 at 19:54 GMT
Holy damn, that Ninja Gaiden continue screen is still the most terrifying thing ever.
Aug 9th, 2010 at 20:21 GMT
So you got rid of one of two difficult ones, ok.
Aug 10th, 2010 at 01:20 GMT
This is agreat quiz, although I think that the sequels used in this quiz should be answered by typing in their originals name. I only typed in street fighter for S.F.2 but I didn't get it right. I think I should of gotten it even though I didn't type II
Aug 10th, 2010 at 03:20 GMT
5 globes for any quiz featuring Battletoads!
Aug 16th, 2010 at 20:37 GMT
ninja gaiden?? isn't that game shadow warriors?
Aug 17th, 2010 at 21:28 GMT
i think the obvious sequels should need to include the numbers (zelda2, smb3, gta3) also, "metal gear solid" instead of just "metal gear" and accept "the adventure of link" nice inclusion of smash tv though :D
Aug 19th, 2010 at 10:19 GMT
I'm guessing anyone who's played number 1 would be quite familiar with that screen...
Aug 20th, 2010 at 17:06 GMT
GAME OVER YEAH!!!!!!!
Aug 22nd, 2010 at 00:24 GMT
FINALLY! A Spyro game featured.
Oct 17th, 2010 at 07:08 GMT
I agree that you should have to guess the actual game, not just the series. It makes it a bit too easier otherwise.
Oct 17th, 2010 at 08:31 GMT
Yeah, if I type in "Street Fighter", it shouldn't count. If I type in "Street Fighter II", it should. Metal Gear Solid does not equal Metal Gear. Super Mario Bros. 3 does not equal Super Mario Bros. "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" does not equal "Sonic" (which is all you need to type to answer - by my count there are approximately 45 different "Sonic" games. There's also a bit of a discrepancy, as you have the game over screen for Final Fantasy VIII, but you still have to put in the VIII.

Kudos for including Spyro - I was hoping to see it! :) Also, I think 'Bubble Bobble' is called 'Bust-a-move' in the UK, I tried it and it didn't work, so you should add it as an alternative.
Oct 19th, 2010 at 05:08 GMT
Got them all, but had a hard time figuring some of them out. So, 5 sporcles.
Oct 20th, 2010 at 03:38 GMT
I did horribly. Hell yes >:]
Oct 20th, 2010 at 08:01 GMT
Bubble Bobble and Bust-A-Move are two different games.
Oct 24th, 2010 at 16:58 GMT
I think "SMB3" "super mario brothers 3" and "super mario 3" should all be acceptable answers.
Oct 24th, 2010 at 17:13 GMT
Please accept Super Mario 3 for Super Mario Bros 3, it's a common shortening of the game title. On an unrelated note, I feel like an idiot for not getting Battletoads.
Oct 24th, 2010 at 17:16 GMT
Oh, also, I forgot to tell you something: that's not the Bubble Bobble game over screen, it's the Bubble Bobble 2 game over screen.
Nov 14th, 2010 at 22:50 GMT
Not sure how well-known it'd be, but I've always liked the Game Over screen from Friday the 13th -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNXSXmxlUjU

Nov 27th, 2010 at 13:33 GMT
hmm sporcle might wanna fix that archived comments thing
Dec 24th, 2010 at 01:56 GMT
@donuthead: Maybe it's gonna be published in a few days.
Dec 24th, 2010 at 13:16 GMT
Actually this quiz has the standard sporcle picture format not user created so it will

Super Mario Brothers 3 should be accepted. Also Mike Tyson's Punch Out.
Jan 1st, 2011 at 17:16 GMT
I personally thought that it was way too picky. I typed in Crash Bandicoot. I typed in Sonic the Hedgehog. I typed in Grand Theft Auto. I typed in Mortal Kombat. I guess if you're really into gaming then you would want a challenge with it being really specific to which game it is, but for this occasional gamer it was too difficult. I wish it was a bit less picky. Also, I agree with above. Super Mario Brothers 3 should be accepted.
Jan 1st, 2011 at 18:22 GMT
I'm sad so few people got Final Fantasy 8, but GTA is so high on the list...
Jan 1st, 2011 at 20:20 GMT
Too picky! Waaay too picky! I mean, "adventure of link" not accepted?
Jan 1st, 2011 at 20:58 GMT
I'm just shocked more people knew Battletoads then Zelda II.
Jan 1st, 2011 at 21:43 GMT
i typed in every early zelda game except zelda II. i just forgot about it, thinking "ok... the legend of zelda.. nope... a link to the past... nope.... links awakening.... nope" i can't believe it! i love zelda!
Jan 1st, 2011 at 22:19 GMT
I gave up as soon as I realized "Super Mario Brothers 3" wasn't accepted for "Super Mario Bros. 3." That's lame, no reason for that.
Jan 2nd, 2011 at 00:46 GMT
I'd like to say I did badly because I never had to see those screens, but unfortunately it wouldn't be true. And I'd get rated down for arrogance. Which is fair.
Jan 2nd, 2011 at 03:05 GMT
I guess this quiz proves it...that damn laughing dog traumatized a lot of children.
