    69% as well. The ones I got right I had no problem with so apparently I liked obscure games. I only got wrong ones where I’d never heard of any of the 4.

  2. webmonkees says:

    Missed 1. Might not be necessary to have an arcade machine but it didn’t hurt.

  3. KidDork says:

    53 percent. My weak defense is that I was often listening to my Walkman very loudly during my Eighties arcade days.

  4. Anonymous says:

    I managed a non-guessing 62%. And there were two others I should have gotten but got tricked by how “easy” the right answer stood out in a sea of weaker choices. I thought it was a trick!

    Not as hard as advertised, really.

  5. Stevezilla says:

    92.3! I didn’t Time Crisis was Time Crisis, though. You threw in some obscure choices that made some of the answers obvious. That, and I’ve always been a big Namco fan.

    I’m surprised there aren’t more 100%s yet. Yes, I knew this was going to be hard for most gamers, but then again, BB-ers aren’t most gamers. Stevezilla hit it on the head when he said some of the choices were just too obscure, which I hoped would help you narrow things down. Ah, well, at least the tunes are fun to listen to, right?

    BTW, you can now buy many of these games in a single joystick for under $20! I got one for my son at Target, but they’re available at Amazon, etc. too…

    53.8% … I didn’t play all those games. :P

  8. dculberson says:

    Only got 69%, but a lot of it was that the games were so obscure! Oh well, I am proud of my 69%.

  9. DrLaserfalcon says:

    Happy to walk away with 46%. I was mostly trying reverse hack the quiz-writer to figure out answers. Only a couple were obvious.

    Though I doubt anyone will miss this 8-bit ditty…

    84.6% was my score. I mixed up Pac & Pal with Super Pac-Man.

  11. Blaine says:

    Missed 3, although I’ll admit a lot were guesses.

    Only on a couple I was really confident.

  12. Johnny Cat says:

    I play Galaxian on my silly phone all the time!

  13. lauradw says:

    Wow it’s like gamer’s trivial pursuit. Very cool. Glad I found this. screen printing supplies

  14. HPHovercraft says:

    84.6%. I missed 3 and 6. And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a date with a MAME.

  15. cjp says:

    23%. (Hangs head in shame.) I blame my mother.

    I would have aced this if it had been a “Namco songs from Katamari Damacy levels” quiz, though.

    11/13 for me (missed Burning Force and Pac-Land). Once or twice I guessed what the music would be before it even loaded, just from the game choices (e.g. Xevious).

  17. Mikey says:

    92.3 here. I was just thinking this weekend about how great it would be if there was an Aladdin’s Castle at the mall around here so I could go and waste a Saturday afternoon and pretend it was the 80′s again for a little while.

  18. Mr Zwoda says:

    Somehow I got 9 right. That’s a bit of a nerdy self esteem boost.

  19. antigenx says:

    53% with no prior experience with any of those games! (Well, except pac-man which I got wrong… go figure!)

  20. elbowling says:

    86%, transposed the pac man themes…

  22. gwailo_joe says:

    Blast the quiz!!! (besides PacMan, DigDug and BurgerTime. . .I care not!)

    I WANT THAT SKULL!!! I would display it so proudly. . .

  23. Anonymous says:

    100% Easy because the answers are not the obscure ones.

  24. IslandFunKen says:

    92.3% – I knew that spending 1000s of hours playing games would one day give me immense rewards! Only one I missed was Steel Gunner.

  25. Blaine says:
