Tech recycling company Computer Disposals Limited recently published a quiz that invited the UK public to guess various retro video games from screenshots of their iconic levels. The quiz is available for use, I have provided details and the supporting assets below.
Over 1,000 people took the quiz and the results prove that UK gamers remain nostalgic and passionate about their video games but are thrown off by smaller games franchises which they don’t remember as well.
40% of People Couldn’t Correctly Identify All 10 Retro Video Games
- 93% of UK gamers identified Space Invaders correctly, proving it to be the most iconic retro video game on this list
- People were thrown off most by Super Metroid from the Metroid franchise, with 44% getting this question wrong based on its iconic level below:
- A third of people were unable to identify Duck Hunt, one of the oldest games to appear in the quiz. This is surprising, as it was one of the original games to come with the Nintendo Entertainment System. Of those that got it wrong, most assumed it to be from the Yoshi franchise:
- Impressively, over half (59%) of UK gamers were able to correctly identify Super Mario Bros despite two other retro Mario games – Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros 2, appearing alongside it as an option in the quiz. This proves that UK gamers are avid fans of Mario and can differentiate various games within the franchise
