October Quiz - Gaming Celebrities

Sometimes there are big names in a video game - be it the designer, a la "Joe Average presents Action Fight 2" or the protagonist, for example "Action Fight 2 starring Joe Average". That's the titles this round is about, those that have a famous developer, a sports star or a pop starlet to boost their chance of success. Do you know them all?

For the correct name of the game you get one point.
Should you not know it, you can still get half a point for the name of the designer (if it's in the title) or the protagonist.

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of October, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz, have fun!

Hm, that's definitely easier than previous rounds. I feel some pride that I have no clue what #14 is. Which is quickly shattered by the fact that I do know what #18 is.

October Quiz - Clues #1

The red carpet is out, spotlights are on, photographers are ready... the stars and starlets of this round are waiting to be recognised by all of you! Will you join the 45 users (three from here) that are already in the crowd?

For the correct name of the game you get one point. Should you not know it there's still half a point in the name of the "star".


Here are the clues:

1) Number four is a strategy classic, where you have to lead your tribe from the stone age into the far future.
2) The stars of the titles 1,6,7,8,15,19 and 21 are athletes.
3) The third row doesn't show anything ingame, instead they're all covers.
4) The celebs of the 10 and 20 are novelists.

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of October, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again, you can do this!

So I've just been informed by Mr_Horizon that some fool did this:

Quote:
It just occured to me that if you don't know about it maybe someone entered in your name. It's just a videogame quiz via a google form, so people can use whatever username they want.

Last night someone entered as "DamienD" from "eab" and filled every answer field with strange political US-right wing statements. The comment field was "Back to my sad life as a window licker" and I thought I'd send you a message!
How lame... whoever did this needs to get a life, very sad indeed...

October Quiz - Clues #2

All the stars of this round have assembled, and it turns out one is really famous, 9 out of 10 users know right away who it is... and another one unfortunately has it the other way around. This fits perfectly, as those two celebrities come from the first and last entry in this quiz.

So far there are 62 users attending (four from here), maybe some more of you want to join? The quiz ends in one week!

Here are the last clues:

1) Number 5 is a famous youtuber (active for over 15 years) with millions of subscribers.
2) The celebrities shown in the games 2,9,11,14,22 and 23 are musicians.
3) Game 10 is a modern 3rd person shooter, there's also a sequel.
4) With title 15 we have a first person shooter for ps2, xbox, GBA and the DS.

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of October, Participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz one last time, join now:
