Tallying Your Score

If you scored:

  • Above 11: You are a true Nintendo fan. But you probably cheated by going on Wikipedia or Googling these. :)
  • 10: You got all of them minus the bonus question! Or you got the bonus question but failed at one of the other factoids. Don’t worry, either way, you are a loyal Nintendo fan, and rightly so as your favorite company is just as loyal back to you!
  • Between 6-9: Good job. You’re above average with your knowledge on video games (more specifically, Nintendo) and we know  you didn’t cheat (at least for the most part)
  • Between 3-5: An average Joe, aren’t ya? Good job picking off at least a bit of these nuggets. Make sure you check out the answers another time so these small factoids stick!
  • Below 2: The Sony and/or Microsoft die-hard is clear with you. Even if you don’t like these companies, you sure don’t like Nintendo! Or you’re probably a very interested Nintendo fan, just not enough to know the basics! Too bad.
