The Hardcore Gamer IQ Test that Will Destroy You


(click to enlarge)

Do you have any idea what you’re looking at? No, of course you don’t, because this is a massive, massive image shrunk down to fit here. Click it to blow it up where it was originally drawn over at DeviantArt.

It’s called the “Hardcore Gamer’s IQ Test” and it will absolutely destroy your confidence in yourself that you really know video games.

Naming all 425 characters from 375 games is just the start. There are a myriad of bonus questions and naturally, 20 Fallout bobbleheads to find. Enjoy your next few hours.

Thanks to KGmagic for the tip.

    Does anybody have this picture in “high-res”? And I mean, really High-res ;) Want to print it as big as possible!


    great Work and site!

  • Limitus

    @chris: whatever^^ you can use it for both games, and since i prefer rockband… :p

    @carsten: can’t you “photoshop” it to higher res? poster is a veeeeery good idea :o

    To Carsten, this image is as large as it’s going to get without being pixelated. The picture was taken from and linked directly to DeviantArt so unless the artist is holding out on a higher resolution picture then there’s no chance that a larger version can be found.

    Anyway, I think I recognize a good 50% of the characters in the picture, about a third of the games each character comes from and about a quarter of the character’s actual names. This would be just a bit easier if the characters weren’t so scrunched together :P

    No Twinsen from LBA 1 & 2 :C

    Ok Guys,

    I bought a higher-Res Version directly via Paypal from the Artist. Just visit his deviantart site and check his comment. There’s a link to buy it. Costs round about 4 Dollar. I have it now in a Resolution of 9000×6000 px and 300 dpi and will print it out for our office!
