    Default The Random Video Game Trivia Thread

    It seems it's been a while since a thread like this was started. Anyhow, I have always found them fun, so in honor of all things fun, here is the first question.

    If you answer the question correctly, it's your turn todig deep into that video gaming brain of yours and pull out a new question.

    Sound like fun? It is. I'm also asking for the original poster of the question to donate some meseta (could be a little, could be a lot) to the individual that gets the answer right.

    OK... in the words of a fat plumber, HERE WE GO!

    Question 1:

    In what year was Id Software's first commercial success released, and what was the name of that game?

    HINT - It's not a first person shooter.

    of course depends on what you count as commercial success, but my guess is Commander Keen Episode 1: Marooned on Mars, December 1990

    Point goes to Hydrox for his detail. Normally I wouldn't, but he gave the correct year where Saabmeister gave two years. . Sorry Saab.

    I award you 200 Meseta Hydrox. Your turn.

    Also, if you know you are correct (no doubt) go ahead and give your question. That will speed things up.

    Alright, I'll do question number 2, but for whoever gets this right and knows it, please go ahead and ask the new question.

    Ok, here we go.

    What was the SNES game Smart Ball known as in Japan?

    Jelly Boy.

    My question: Hiroshi Miyauchi was a composer for Sega in the 1980's and early 90's. What games did he compose the music for? Each correct answer will net you 100 meseta.

    EDIT: D'oh, I missed! My question still stands, however.

    Hang On
    Outrun
    Space Harrier

    And the correct answer to my question was actually Jerry Boy, not Jelly Boy. A common mistake.

    Anyway, here goes...

    What rock band was featured in the arcade shooter Revolution X?

    Super Hang-On is incorrect, but After Burner is right.

    He has also done a couple of other games, but this is good enough.

    We should do a trade off, like whoever answers one question will be asking the next question.

    I did think of one:

    What was one of the most popular n64 games that never came out to the virtual boy (hint: there was actually press about this game)?
