Hear ye, hear ye! Time for this week’s quiz.

But first, a suggestion:
>> After some discussion, it is preferred you submit your answers with spoiler tags to block them out so people playing don’t inadvertently see answers before submitting their own.
For those who don’t know how to spoiler tag:
[spoiler] then type your text to hide, then at the end put [ /spoiler] , except without the space after the bracket.
If you don’t know the answer and are leaving a comedic response, then feel free not to tag it <<

_____________

For this week’s quiz, I will follow the same basic format that was presented last week, but with a few notable wrinkles of my own. Please let me know if any questions need clarification. I have tried to word them as clearly as I can. I have questions separated into easy (1 pt), normal (2 pts), hard (3 pts), and crushing (5 pts), and one question has a bonus.

The next post will have the 8 questions. I’ll put them in a post if their own for ease of reference.
Now gimme your best guesses! It’s all in good fun. No penalties for wrong guesses! And don’t cheat and google the answers either — or the gaming gods will make your Dual Shock 4 break and will corrupt all your cloud saves!

*Pro tip- you can copy and paste the questions into your response to guide you through the quiz, and then just delete the text of the actual questions and add the spoiler tags before submitting your answers.

I’ll close the quiz and tally points on approximately Sunday evening or Monday morning.

@Fight_Teza_Fight Lol, I guess I might have gone a little too hard with the questions maybe. But actually I’m quite impressed so far that people do seem to know most of this stuff. But no one has gotten the max possible points yet.

So I encourage everyone to just take a crack at the answers, just for fun, if nothing else. I didn’t want to discourage people with excessively difficult questions, but my intent was to offer a little challenge and tap into some questions that may appeal to the average PlayStation gamer with greatest hits like Bloodborne, TLoU, and LBP as well as to the long time fans who remember old games like the whole MGS series and launch games from 12 years ago.

So for anyone curious, go up to comment #22 for this week’s questions.

The story so far....

@DerMeister — 18
@KratosMD — 17
@Fight_Teza_Fight — 4
@Kidfried — 23
@leucocyte — 19
@Jaz007 — 15
@themcnoisy — 14

That’s out of a total potential max score of 28 points if you get all the bonus. So Kid has the lead if no one else submits. I’ll be closing it down and posting the answers in a few hours so anyone else who wants to take a crack at it, go ahead. There’s no shame in scoring just 4 points. 🙂

@Th3solution Thanks! I'm on holiday right now, but I'll try and come up with a quiz as exciting as yours.

I feel honored

Th3solution

@Kidfried Thanks! I look forward to it.
I was just impressed that the only ones you didn’t know were the Cordyceps infection and the Sea Guardian fish of P4G. Even I had to look up the PS3 release titles, and it was my question! 😂
