You know those really obnoxious click baiting “quizzes” that show up on every social feed ever? With titles like, “Which princess are you?”, “What Kind of Farter Are you?” (no, really), “Are you More Garfield Or Nermal?”, I’ve managed to completely avoid this craze. Until this quiz: “Can We Guess Your Age By Your Taste in Video Games?” I would say yes! Of course you can! A first year stats student could probably guess my age from nothing more than the list of game apps on my phone. So I clicked the link and took the quiz and the answer is NO! THEY CAN’T BECAUSE THEIR ANSWERS ARE ALL WRONG!
So Buzzfeed quiz author, if you want to guess my age correctly, you may consider a few updates to your quiz.
Choices for the question: Which Console is your favorite?
What?? I can make no sense of this. Where’s the Sega? The Atari? You include 5 Nintendo consoles, one of which is a handheld and NOT a gameboy color, another the GameCube that no one loved, and you leave out the SNES?? I can hardly stand it. The console that brought us some of the most amazing titles and groundbreaking play is not even on the list. I’ll tell Donkey Kong Country, Sim City, Earthbound, Lemmings, Harvest Moon, A link To the Past, Final Fantasy III, Super Mario Kart and Tetris/Dr. Mario that they can’t even be considered for the list.
Choices for Which Accessory do you always have?
Eh? All of them. + Power Pad, ROB the robot, Power Glove, NES Advantage, Stickers for marking controllers, extra power cables, kinect, chargers, snap on gameboy lights, video game chair, CD sleeves, Skylanders dock, Infinity Dock, and PC game converter. Duh.
Choices for Who would be your drinking buddy?
Choices for Best Fighting Game
Choices for Which Fictional World do you Wish was Your Home?
Here are my results:
You grew up in the land of SNES and Game Boy, which was an awesome time to be alive. You had to solve games on your own, without any help from the internet. Plus, you can compose one hell of a song in Mario Paint.
Buzzfeed quiz – You may have my age completely wrong, but your dead on about my Mario Paint Skillz. I can not only compose the crap out of some moo music, I can set it to an obscene animation and then take a coffee break and mouse whack the crap out of some bugs and spiders. Wanna try me?
