I bet most of those who didn't get Final Fantasy probably didn't just because they're only familiar with the new FF games.
May 9th, 2010 at 15:53 GMT
Very cool game. Editor's Choice.
May 9th, 2010 at 18:15 GMT
@Kicking22 Hey thanks man! Glad you liked it @cantthink One of the best games of all time IMHO
May 9th, 2010 at 21:16 GMT
Thanks for making a cool quiz. ;) After all, that's my benefit of being the Editor- I get to give a little reward (very little, but still) when I think somebody's made a game that really improves the site. Keep up the good work!
May 10th, 2010 at 02:36 GMT
I really enjoyed this quiz. I hadn't thought about some of these games in years!!!
May 12th, 2010 at 00:59 GMT
great game. but too easy. throw in some obscure ones like hogan's alley, karnov, etc
May 13th, 2010 at 05:27 GMT
I liked this game. Most of the games were too easy go guess; just deciphering from looking at the picture like Dr. Mario, Kung Fu, TMNT, Duck Tales. Still, I enjoyed it :)
May 19th, 2010 at 00:38 GMT
I might make a new one with harder clues. I tried to make a mix of easy and hard ones but I guess this was too easy for you. From my memory we always had the cartridges but never had the actual box, and there's a few on there I know I wouldn't have gotten. I'm looking at you Spy Hunter
May 20th, 2010 at 04:53 GMT
Glorious, wonderful, excellent game
May 24th, 2010 at 01:21 GMT
Wow, I hadn't thought of that Micro Machines game for a really long time! Fun game, fun quiz.
Jun 26th, 2010 at 04:34 GMT
That Mega Man box art is hideous.
Oct 14th, 2010 at 17:51 GMT
Kudos for throwing in RC Pro-Am, one of my personal favorite games...and I agree, the Mega Man box art was horrible. This quiz makes me realize that I wasted so much of my childhood on the NES, and not enough time in the sunlight.

Thank you Blades of Steel, and your in-game ads for Contra and Jackal. I would never have known about those two titles otherwise
Nov 10th, 2010 at 18:56 GMT
Ah, Jackal. I remember borrowing that game from one of my friends when I was 6 and never giving it back until just before I moved away. Such an awesome game.
Dec 8th, 2010 at 04:08 GMT
Very nice quiz! I nominated this one - make more and people will come. They most certainly will come.

"Super Mario Brothers 3" should work for the Mario one. Nice quiz otherwise though.
Dec 15th, 2010 at 19:58 GMT
Great selection of quizzes today, I loved this one.
Dec 15th, 2010 at 20:32 GMT
That's Mega Man? I thought it was a chimp in a blue suit.
Dec 15th, 2010 at 23:15 GMT
Well I got the same top 7 as a lot of people. I've also only played the top 7 of this bunch, so I'm okay with that.
Dec 16th, 2010 at 00:24 GMT
Ugh. Ninja Gaiden .... 2. hate thinking I had the wrong game or wrong spelling when all I forgot was the 2.
Dec 16th, 2010 at 01:29 GMT
I LOVED R.C. Pro-Am. Hours of quality entertainment.
Dec 16th, 2010 at 01:51 GMT
man, i hated playing ninja gaiden II. that was one game that wasn't even satisfying after i beat it. most of these other ones I loved, however. particularly mega man, final fantasy and mario 3
Dec 16th, 2010 at 03:08 GMT
I think I owned all of these games when I was younger. Awesome quiz, and a trip down memory lane! Anyone remember "Legend of Kage"?
Dec 16th, 2010 at 11:37 GMT
Wow, I got published! Thanks for playing. And thanks for the nod csteve81!
Dec 17th, 2010 at 00:46 GMT
Yay for 89th percentile in completely useless information! Enjoyed the quiz, and I agree that it is surprising that so few people remember the old Final Fantasy cover art.
Dec 17th, 2010 at 23:26 GMT
wow, Jackal. I loved that game, got it for Christmas about 1988 or so. And RC Pro AM. That was awesome! Had no idea micro machines or bubble bobble though.
Dec 18th, 2010 at 16:30 GMT
Please accept "Doctor Mario"
Dec 19th, 2010 at 02:21 GMT
Nice quiz! I guessed Kung Fu for the game because of the picture. :)

I really should have gotten Final Fantasy, but there was no chance at Jackal. Fun quiz!
Feb 4th, 2011 at 03:52 GMT
Doctor Mario and Super Mario Brothers 3 should NOT work. The official names are Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. 3. Abbreviations are included in the official names. If Ninja Turtles won't work for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then it should apply the other way.
Feb 7th, 2011 at 08:26 GMT
i typed in ninja gaiden and i lost becouse it whouldnt take it make them less pickey plz
Jan 27th, 2012 at 19:17 GMT
Mar 2nd, 2012 at 20:58 GMT
ugh... I lost when I was trying to remember how to spell "kid icarus" by typing "kid icaras"! xD
Jul 8th, 2012 at 06:29 GMT
Is it a Jackal? Is it a Jackal? Yes. Yes it is.
Sep 23rd, 2012 at 23:35 GMT
I knew it was Super Mario Bros *3* because it was Tanooki Mario
Feb 16th, 2013 at 16:02 GMT
Awesome quiz! Super Mario Bros. 3 is no doubt the best NES game of all time. You should make more quizzes like this one. I noticed you only have one quiz and I think you should make more! Hey, even though the Mega Man box art was hideous, still an awesome quiz. I know you can't change it now because it's published!
Apr 23rd, 2013 at 13:10 GMT
I got 19. I don't mind that I'd never heard of Jackal, but leaving the "2" off of Ninja Gaiden sort of sucks!
