DrLilo's Video Game Quiz

Hey, consider yourself a gamer? Time to test youre knowledge with a bit of Video Game Trivia! I'll cover some video game history and you can find out if you're a useless knowledge master or just a pathetic n00b.

In this modern age of internet, some of us have gotten a little too used to leaning on GameFAQs whenever we get stuck with anything... Well in this case you could always use Wikipedia or google to glide gaily through the quiz, but that wouldn't really have much of a purpose would it? To cheat at some random internet quiz?

  11. Super Mario Bros. is the game most remembered for essentially inventing the 2D platformer as we know them today and it can definitely be awarded for its inspired use of the side-scrolling camera...

What was the name of its hero?
