Nice one Nobby. You're unshakeable.

I too should have got Hollow Knight, but in fairness I still haven't got round to playing it. Sat in Steam for ages.

Oh that's why the tab looks really chunky now. Don't like. I'm so geriatric I wasn't sure if I'd not noticed before.

I mostly use it for Twitch, which does have lots of younguns on there. So they say.

Disagree!

Someone who calls themselves baked produce is far from average.

June Quiz - SEGA

Few companies have made a name for themselves as manufacturers of both quality hard- and software, and SEGA is undoubtedly among them. From famous arcade machines to the top consoles of the 80s and 90s (and their bizarre add ons), from total gameplay classics to freaky japanese quirkiness, this company just has it all.

To make a coherent picture of that with just 25 games is not possible, so I won't pretend this riddle is in any way a complete list of SEGAs most important work. Just take it as a selection of big and small titles on SEGA hardware. Yes it'll be difficult again, but you will surely recognise a few names in the first two rows.

Many (but not all) of the games were developed by SEGA and its teams, and all games were released on SEGA consoles (or its arcade machines).

About the survey: I promise to stop with the demographic questions, starting July it'll be only about videogames again.

Deadline is Wednesday the 30th of June, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here's the quiz, and now everyone together: SEEEE-GAAAA

No kidding, I can scarcely believe it's a Sega game.

I'm no expert on Sega but looking forward to becoming one.
Keep meaning to delve deeper into the back catalogue.

June Quiz - Clues #1

SEEEEE-GAAAA! That's really some masterful sound branding here... and you can be masterful too, when you ace this round because you have had some Sega in your live. So far no one of the 35 players has achieved a full score.

But why am I still talking? Here's the first set of clues:

1) This time there's 9 games for the Dreamcast, 6 for the Saturn, 3 each for Master System and Arcade, 2 for the Genesis and one entry for SegaCD and 32X.
2) Three titles have "Sonic" in their name, but only for the first one I will accept "Sonic" as the correct answer.
3) Game 11 and 15 are both strategy RPGs in a steampunk setting, released on Saturn.
4) Number 20 is a racing game with airplanes.

Deadline isWednesday the 30th of June, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

Here is the quiz again: https://i.imgur.com/yHF9W3b.png

Got the last one that was confusing me.

This is the first time that I used Excel to help - only thing is my numbers don't add up and I get 10 DC games and only 5 on the Saturn! Pretty sure I have all the games though..?

I checked again - one game was released on both Dreamcast and Saturn, that's probably where we counted differently. You have it right anyway.
