If anyone wants me to shorten the clips like I did last time, I will, but I figure they won't seem to drag on as much here because they're a bit more cinematic than the 8-bit and 16-bit ones.
May 26th, 2010 at 05:03 GMT
Oh, and the criteria for being in this quiz: The game must be from one of the previous two console generations or a PC game from before that era that uses 3D graphics.
May 26th, 2010 at 06:46 GMT
I enjoyed your selection of clips, especially clips 1, 2, and 27.
May 26th, 2010 at 08:13 GMT
For 28 you really need to accept the abbreviated title. Great quiz though.

Very well made quiz, and you get props from me for clips 20 and 24. :D

Sonic Adventure was released in 1999.
May 27th, 2010 at 03:08 GMT
EuroGamer360: The game was released in Japan in late December of 1998, though it didn't hit the rest of the world until 1999. However, it can still be open for debate whether or not it's a good idea to use the earliest (often Japanese) release date but always the North American intro (though in the case of Sonic Adventure, I'm not sure the language/region makes a difference for this clip)
May 29th, 2010 at 21:53 GMT
Hehe, you seem like a Nintendo-centric gamer like me ^_^ Nice quiz!
May 31st, 2010 at 18:13 GMT
Arkardian: Guilty as charged, though I tried my best to be all-inclusive. Fun fact: I've only actually played 14 of the games on this quiz, 4 of which are first-party Nintendo games (I've played all the ones here except Fire Emblem), and then there's Diddy Kong Racing, which is close enough to first-party to make it 5-ish. Thank you and everyone else for the positive reviews!

wow this was a great one.

How did I KNOW Grim Fandango would be on here?
Jun 1st, 2010 at 13:55 GMT
Would you accept "Mario 64"? I did try that. Unfortunately my knowledge of gaming in the 2000s is vastly reduced simply because the last games console I actually owned was a PlayStation, the original one. My knowledge of Sega Mega Drive/Genesis games is even better. Suppose it depends how old you are and how much interest in gaming you actually have. I had a lot of interest in gaming until about 10 years ago.
Jun 1st, 2010 at 20:20 GMT
omggggggg grim fandango was such a good game
Jun 2nd, 2010 at 01:42 GMT
HiddenPalace: "Mario 64" has now been added. May I recommend my quiz of this type for 8-bit and 16-bit games? It has quite a few Genesis titles on there.
Jun 6th, 2010 at 13:51 GMT
lol for number 27 i was guessing things like "lsd trip" and "party with shrooms".
Jun 7th, 2010 at 08:59 GMT
I think you should accept GTA Vice City
Jun 8th, 2010 at 01:17 GMT
Evan: I do accept that. Perhaps you made a typo when entering that in?
Jun 23rd, 2010 at 20:58 GMT
could you maby do a upcoming game from there e3 trailer?
Jun 28th, 2010 at 22:02 GMT
I just typed in Vice City by itself for 21 and it didn't work, it doesn't matter that much anyway because anybody who knows the game as Vice City should know the full name of the game.
Jul 29th, 2010 at 11:12 GMT
Wow, Fire Emblem seems rather out of place as the only non-3D game. I personally have never seen most of these intros, but I recognised the characters anyway. Fun, fun, fun nostalgia (sorta) trip
Aug 1st, 2010 at 16:04 GMT
The clip for Ratchet and Clank is not exactly the intro. It's in the intro stage, but it's a little after the actual intro of the game.
Aug 10th, 2010 at 06:26 GMT
Just typing "Vice City" should be enough. Sorry for the spoiler.

I LOVE these quizzes, hope you make some more. I played this one and the classics one. =D
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 21:33 GMT
More love for Grim Fandango!
Jan 4th, 2011 at 19:05 GMT
no super smash bros? BLASPHEMY. I love those intros :) At least you have Super Mario 64, possibly one of the most memorable intros ever.

I tried typing in one thing for #7 in so many ways...just to find out it was a different game altogether.
Jul 11th, 2012 at 16:00 GMT
Love it- great selection of games from all sorts of genres. Personally, seeing #21 brought back some great memories of games past (plus, I enjoy that one because the scene itself actually takes place in
City). Excellent quiz- 5/5.
Jul 11th, 2012 at 16:32 GMT
The one thing I took away from this is that game designers must spend a lot of time as high as kites!!!
Jul 11th, 2012 at 17:25 GMT
Grim Fandango: BEST. GAME. EVER.
Jul 11th, 2012 at 21:08 GMT
Congrats on your first published quiz!
Jul 11th, 2012 at 21:18 GMT
Aww Fire Emblem is the least guessed one? Great quiz a lot of different games 5/5
Jul 12th, 2012 at 12:49 GMT
Major props for including #1 and #3. We older gamers thank you. Would like to have seen the intro to Diablo 2, but this was a great selection. Well done!
Jul 12th, 2012 at 19:44 GMT
Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine. Not that I wish to imply you have been sporcling on the job.
Jul 12th, 2012 at 21:42 GMT
Great quiz with lots of variety! I like very much :)
Jul 12th, 2012 at 22:25 GMT
27... I will never understand the inspiration for this game.
Jul 13th, 2012 at 18:46 GMT
...Now I want to play Animal Crossing again.
Jul 14th, 2012 at 04:43 GMT
Grand Theft Auto and Katamari got me because I guessed the wrong game in the series! Dang...
