This is the thread for the Push Square Forum Weekend Quiz.

I don't think the topic needs anymore explaining really does it?

Well regardless every weekend (usually) a member of the forums makes a quiz.

The rest of you lovely folks of the forums try to answer said questions in the quiz. Or ya know make hilarious joke answers if ya don't (especially so if you're Gremio108).

Somebody wins (Though since it had been rekindled there's been a couple of draws too!) and then somebody different makes a quiz the following weekend.

The original topic was made by KratosMD (Hence the MK-II in the title. It wouldn't feel right not acknowledging that at the least)

... And uhh... Yeah. Get quizzing? 😅

"Well that was fun. Horrible, but fun!" Fargus The Jester - Pandemonium (After a summoning a monster that destroyed his home town)

"Words don't make changes. Wounds do." Agent Black - Iconoclasts

Oh, I didn’t even realise this was a Kratos thread too! I think this weekend is my turn so I’ll try to do him proud.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy we used to have random quizzes which changed thread every week and @KratosMD organised it into one thread when it was his turn up. Good call all things considered.

This quiz involves naming the auteur behind these games. Each one is responsible for forwarding the industry in some sense through quirky, forward-thinking, or just plain strange ideas. So essentially ‘name that person’. Good luck!

@crimsontadpoles I'm kind of the opposite of you, I guess. I even read credits often.

@nessisonett Hm... I might actually be okay at this. I've missed the last couple of quizzes so I need to knuckle down.

1. Molyneux. Forgotten his first name. Not the Canadian alt-right guy
2. Will Wright
3. Hideo Kojima
4. Tim Schafer
5. Goichi Suda, aka Suda51 as the cool kids call him
6. SWERY, which is a sort of shortening of his surname. Which I've forgotten
7. Fumito Ueda
8. Keita Takahashi, absolute god
9. Argh. Can't remember. Danny Dyer? Not confident
10. I don't even recognise these games. I'll say Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. Again, not confident
11. Michel Ancel
12. Shinji Mikami
13. Barry Scott of Cilit Bang fame
14. Disgraced publicist and mogul Max Clifford
15. Johnathan Blow
16. Should know it. Do I get half a point for saying he's Japanese? Probably not
17. LSD: Dream Emulator? That's got Angela Lansbury written all over it
18. Spector. Forgotten his first name. Not Phil
19. Phil Fish, and weirdly I only remembered his first name because of the Phil Spector gag in my previous answer. Freaky
20. No chance. Could be Mr Blobby for all I know

That was a great quiz. I'm all right at developers, so I thought I might ace it, but it went to pieces a bit in the middle.

I can't believe the quiz thread is another casualty from KratosMD leaving.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

I’m poor at remembering names. But there are a couple of people that stick out because I love their stuff:


1) Fable, Black & White, Populous
2) SimCity, The Sims, Spore
3) Snatcher, Policenauts, Boktai
4) Full Throttle, Psychonauts, Grim Fandango
5) The Silver Case, killer7, No More Heroes
6) Deadly Premonition, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, The Missing
7) Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, The Last Guardian — Fumito Ueda
8) Katamari Damacy, Noby Noby Boy, Wattam
9) Rez, Lumines, Tetris Effect
10) QWOP, Get On Top, Getting Over It
11) Rayman, Beyond Good and Evil, Wild
12) P.N.03, God Hand, Vanquish
13) Pirates!, Gettysburg!, Railroads! — Sid Meier (I think?)
14) Papers Please, Return of the Obra Dinn
15) Braid, The Witness
16) Drakengard, Nier — Yoko Taro
17) LSD: Dream Emulator, Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong Nou
18) Deus Ex, Epic Mickey
19) FEZ
20) Another World (Out of this World) — Angela Lansbury

Despite me being poor at it, great idea!

By my count, that makes the results, with an extremely tight race for the top:

@Kidfried is the winner with a brilliant 14 points!
@Gremio108 next with 13 1/2 points, one day Angela Lansbury will give you the win
@mookysam with 13 points
@RogerRoger with 12 1/2 points
@ralphdibny with 7 points (two half points for your Ueda and Schafer answers)
And @crimsontadpoles and @Th3solution tied with 3 points!

Good job everyone, who would like to volunteer for the next one?

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett Excellent quiz, and congratulations to its winner, @Kidfried (a force to be reckoned with; you've won quite a few now, haven't you?).

I can post a quiz Friday evening, if nobody else wants the honour?

@nessisonett This is the closest I've ever come to winning. Got to be pleased with that

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Just think, if that really was a game by Angela Lansbury, you would have pipped it by half a point.

@Gremio108 Given some of the questions I've been preparing for Friday, I think you might stand half a chance this coming weekend! Be ready!
