Are you a video game whiz or a wimp?

Coin-Op Quiz

If you use Tumblr, you really must follow oldgamemags for the constant stream of retro gaming goodies – including this recently posted quiz from the April 1983 issue of Video Games Magazine. Thankfully, the answers were posted too, if you need them.

A Perfect Score!Whiz or Wimp?

I’ll be honest, I was only certain of the answers on 3 of these 30 questions and I guessed correctly a further 7, but that still places me firmly in the “wimp” category. If anyone can honestly say they are closer to Whiz, you have my deepest respect!

  1. This is a great post!

    However, I’m offended at question #19. A “horseshoe shaped fighter”??? This wimp couldn’t call it a Recognizer? BTW, when you get that far in Tron, the game is REALLY hard.
