From Quiz I Traveled to Europe! (In my Video Game)

Answer: Folklore

"Folklore", developed by Game Republic and made for the PlayStation 3 platform, was released in 2007. It centers around a young student named Ellen who heads to the Irish village of Doolin, Ireland. Here she bumps into a journalist from an occult magazine who had also found his way there. They must solve a mystery together. This involves them both visiting the village and the Celtic Otherworld called Netherworld. The object of the game is to reach the center of Netherworld and solve the mystery without many more mysteries and murders in Doolin.

4. The Throat of the World is the home of the Greybeards in which "Elder Scrolls" game?

From Quiz My Interest is Peaked

Answer: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

By far the largest mountain in Skyrim, the Throat of the World sits roughly in the middle and forms part of Whiterun Hold. The ascent to High Hrothgar, the ancient home of the Greybeards, is known as the Seven Thousand Steps. Beyond High Hrothgar is a windswept climb to the very summit, where the dragon Paarthurnax resides.

5. Which Arabian desert does Nathan Drake find himself in the middle of after a cargo plane crash in "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception"?

From Quiz Wandering the Virtual Deserts

Answer: Rub' Al Khali

In "Uncharted 3", Nate and company are in search of the mysterious Atlantis of the Sands (or Iram of the Pillars). In one particular setpiece, Nate stows away aboard a cargo plane on its way to rendezvous with a caravan in the Rub' Al Khali. When he is discovered, his ensuing actions cause the plane to crash into the sands and leave him stranded in the middle of nowhere. The Rub' Al-Khali, also known as the Empty Quarter, is a vast sand desert on the Arabian Peninsula. It covers an immense 650,000 sq km (that's slightly bigger than the area of mainland France).

6. The Faelands, which were divided into several regions: Dalentarth, Erathell, Detyre, Klurikon, and Alabastra, served as the setting for which action RPG written by R. A. Salvatore?

From Quiz Video Game Geography

Answer: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

"Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning" was an open world, action RPG that was released for the PC, PlayStation 3, and XBox 360 in 2012. Well-known American author R.A. Salvatore was responsible for creating the lore in the game as well as the game universe. In the game, players played as the "Fateless One", a mortal that had been revived by the Well of Souls during the time of the Crystal War, which was waged by the Tuatha Deohn against the mortals. The Fateless One actually had the ability to change the fate of others, and the player could fate shift enemies while in Reckoning mode.

7. "Quest of the Dragon" is a beat 'em up videogame that is headlined by which famed martial artist?

From Quiz Made in China

Answer: Bruce Lee

"Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon" was developed Ronin Entertainment and released in the US and Europe in 2000 for Xbox. Players get to control a young Bruce Lee as he sets out to rescue his kidnapped father and attempt to retrieve an ancient totem known as the Golden Relic from an organised crime mob called the Black Lotus. The Lotus is led by a woman known as the Dragon Lady and she has a score to settle with him after he'd accidentally killed her father years before. Bruce needs to battle his way through a host of enemies and beating them up provides him with coins that will enable the purchase of some Jeet Kune Do-style moves. Along the way there are some serious bosses to overcome and these include the Dragon Lady and her two sisters, Cleopatra and Rhianna. The action will take you to a number of places around the globe, but most notable among these are Hong Kong, London and San Francisco. This question was written by Phoenix Rising's pollucci19 who still believes that Carl Douglas was a liar..."there is no way that everybody was kung fu fighting".

8. Spiral Mountain is the tutorial area which introduces which Nintendo 64 game?

From Quiz My Interest is Peaked

Answer: Banjo-Kazooie

After the game's opening cutscene, wherein Banjo's sister is kidnapped by the witch Gruntilda, Banjo and Kazooie are free to explore Spiral Mountain. Peppered throughout this area are small Bottles' molehills, where he teaches the pair how to perform their basic moves (such as rolling, swimming and jumping). The so-named Spiral Mountain sits in the centre of the area, acting as the only means of reaching Grunty's lair.

9. Which critically acclaimed 2012 game by thatgamecompany is set, for the most part, in a desert which the protagonist needs to cross to reach a mysterious mountain in the distance?

From Quiz Wandering the Virtual Deserts

Answer: Journey

In typical thatgamecompany fashion, "Journey", like its predecessors, is presented in a largely minimalistic way. There's no UI and very little in the way of on-screen instructions. From the very beginning, the ultimate goal of reaching a great mountain in the distance is made clear. While not so much a game as an interactive experience, "Journey" nonetheless transitions between a desert environment, the crumbling ruins of a forgotten civilisation, a darkened subterranean cave system and a snowy ascent to the top of the mountain.

10. In which "Ratchet and Clank" game for the PS3 did players start off in Luminopolis on the planet Igliak before being kidnapped and dropped onto the Aldaros Plains of the planet Magnus?

From Quiz Video Game Geography

Answer: All 4 One

"Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One" was released in 2011 solely for the PlayStation 3 console. The story could be played by up to four people in multiplayer offline, as well as online. Though Dr. Nefarious did start off as an enemy in the game by awakening a Z'Grute to attack Luminopolis, he soon joined forces with Ratchet and Clank when the Z'Grute turned against him. The three, along with Galactic President Captain Qwark, were taken prisoner by Ephemeris and dropped on planet Magnus.

11. Inspired by the kung fu movies of the 1970s, and released in 2020 by Sobaka Studios, how many monkeys make up the title of the video game "___ Monkeys of Shaolin"?

From Quiz Made in China

Answer: Nine

"Nine Monkeys of Shaolin" was released on October 16, 2020 and recreates the atmosphere of the 1970s kung fu movies following the Chinese fantasy genre of Wuxia. Wuxia literally means "martial heroes" and started as a form of literature about the adventures of martial artists in ancient China. Over time it became adapted to other forms of entertainment including video games. The game is set in 1572 China and follows a simple fisherman as he becomes a master of Shaolin. The game tries to remain historically accurate and realistic but also contains elements of magic and fantasy. This question was entered into the quiz by Phoenix Rising member and Grasshopper tazman6619.

12. Who lives with toad servants, in a castle that is often attacked by Bowser and his Koopa Troop in Mushroom Kingdom?

From Quiz The Many Lands of a Console

Answer: Princess Peach

Princess Peach first appeared in "Super Mario Bros" on the NES in 1985 and has had a variety of roles over the years, Although she is often rescued from peril by Mario, she has appeared as a caddy in "NES Open Tournament Golf" (1991) and as an expert fencer in "Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games" for Wii and Nintendo DS in 2007.

13. In which game is All-Mother Mountain a sacred place for the Nora tribe?

From Quiz My Interest is Peaked

Answer: Horizon Zero Dawn

The complicated origins of Aloy in "Horizon Zero Dawn" see her returning to her home tribe of the Nora and entering the sacred mountain containing the All-Mother. Feared and revered by the Nora, no one but the Matriarchs have access to the mountain, who believe that the All-Mother created all life. To them, their goddess is located behind a giant metal door, and Aloy is able to gain access using a registry of data to discover what lies within.

14. What 2012 game features a cloaked person running through the desert towards a mountain?

From Quiz Desert Settings in Video Games

Answer: Journey

A bit more concrete than thatgamecompany's earlier indie productions, "Journey" (PS3, PS4) was still conceptual in nature with a bit less directive than a mainstream game. In this one, you navigated a desert searching for pieces of fabric to help you lead the way to your next destination and, ultimately, you would need to reach a distant mountain. The game also allowed players to meet up together in the barren desert, but online and with minimal communication. As simple as the game was, it was awarded several different 'Game of the Year' prizes from different publications.

15. The residents of this city in "World of Warcraft" weren't loafing when they moved it from the ground to the sky by using their mental powers. What is its name?

From Quiz Video Game Cities

Answer: Dalaran

To act as a defense against the Lich King, Dalaran's magician residents moved it from Lordamere Lake in the Eastern Kingdoms to a spot above the Crystalsong Forest in Northrend. By creating a large shield around the city they prevented the dragon Malygos from destroying it.

16. Poor old Gobi the camel is forced to give up his precious water in his homeworld, before leaving it in search of different climes. In which Rareware video game would you find the somewhat desert-like Gobi's Valley?

From Quiz Wandering the Virtual Deserts

Answer: Banjo-Kazooie

On their quest to save Banjo's sister Tooty from the evil clutches of Gruntilda the witch, Banjo and Kazooie find themselves in Gobi's Valley in search of more musical notes and jigsaw pieces. Pyramids and a talking sphinx called Jinxy can be found here, as well as shambling mummies and disembodied bandaged hands. A few puzzles can be played here too, including a memory card game using large floor tiles, and a hasty jaunt through the maze of King Sandybutt. The eponymous Gobi the camel can be found in this world, tied up to a rock. Banjo and Kazooie free him but later force him to give up his water to rejuvenate a dying tree. Annoyed, Gobi runs off to a small alcove hidden away in the world, whereupon Banjo and Kazooie can force him to give up an Empty Honeycomb Piece (used to increase their health). Now extremely annoyed, Gobi leaves his world and turns up later in Click Clock Wood, where yet again he is forced to give up his water to help a seedling grow. Poor old Gobi.

17. This Wild West game took place in New Austin and northern Mexico. In which open world Western game, released in 2010 by Rockstar Games, did you travel through areas like Tall Trees, Gaptooth Ridge, Cholla Springs, Diez Coronas, and Perdido?

From Quiz Video Game Geography

Answer: Red Dead Redemption

The main character in "Red Dead Redemption" was John Marston, a former outlaw that the U.S. government 'persuaded' into going up against his old gang. Following the leader of the gang took him across parts of Texas and down into Mexico. In addition to following the storyline, there were also side challenges, like hunting for animals and treasure and gathering herbs, as well as being able to perform tasks and favors for people John met along the way.

18. Yay! I just won a Feather Badge! Where am I?

From Quiz Name That Place!

Answer: Fortree City

Both Fortree City and Violet City specialize in bird Pokémon, but Violet has a Zephyr Badge for you, not a Feather Badge. The other two specialize in electric Pokémon.

19. The imperial provinces of Skyrim, Hammerfell and Black Marsh are part of the Empire of Tamriel, in which game franchise?

From Quiz The Many Lands of a Console

Answer: The Elder Scrolls

Other imperial provinces of Tamriel include High Rock, Summerset Isle, Valenwood, Elsweyr, Morrowind, and Cyrodiil. Skyrim is also known as the Old Kingdom and was the first region of Tamriel settled by humans from the continent of Atmora. Hammerfell is a maritime province, with most of its interior being sparsely populated while Black Marsh is a land of waterways and impenetrable swamps with few roads, meaning most transport is done by boat.

20. Midnight Mountain is the last homeworld in which "Spyro" game?

From Quiz My Interest is Peaked

Answer: Spyro: Year of the Dragon

It's from here that Spyro will finally face off against the game's antagonist, the Sorceress. 100 eggs will unlock her lair, while collecting pretty much everything else in the game (like all 149 eggs and 15,000 gems) will unlock a second fight with her in the Super Bonus Round, also accessible from Midnight Mountain.

21. The Dusty Dunes Desert was featured between the cities of Threed and Fourside in what SNES RPG?

From Quiz Desert Settings in Video Games

Answer: Earthbound

While not a lot of the actual (extensive) storyline unfolds in the Dusty Dunes Desert, this intermediary area between the mid-game cities of Threed and Fourside is interesting because, like in a real, blazing desert, it holds the severe possibility of inflicting sunstroke on Ness and the party. No worries though! As long as you have Wet Towels on-hand (which you can buy at the local drug store), the sun is very little to fear as you head towards the game's metropolis.

22. The Civil Protection people in this city are not individuals you'd want to meet up with. In which supposedly well-ordered city, conquered by aliens, will you find them?

From Quiz Video Game Cities

Answer: City 17

City 17 is supposedly located in Eastern Europe in "Half-Life 2". The Combine, composed mostly of aliens, runs things in this ugly, decaying metropolis. The Combine's base of operations, The Citadel, dominates the area, reaching over two kilometers in the sky.

23. "Spec Ops: The Line" takes place in and around a sand-buried version of which Asian city?

From Quiz Wandering the Virtual Deserts

Answer: Dubai

Unusually for a shooter video game, "Spec Ops: The Line" is more narrative-driven than its forebears. Set amongst a partially-buried Dubai after a series of severe sandstorms, the game follows a team of US military soldiers who are sent into the city to search for survivors after a radio transmission. Captain Walker, the central character, experiences a series of hallucinations that get progressively worse before he is confronted with the true nature of the events that have occurred in Dubai.

24. Which game took Spyro through the Dragon Realms, which had six different homeworlds: Artisans, Peace Keepers, Magic Crafters, Beast Makers, Dream Weavers, and Gnasty's World?

From Quiz Video Game Geography

Answer: Spyro the Dragon

"Spyro the Dragon" was the first game in the series, and was released for the PlayStation in 1998. In the game, Spyro advanced through the different homeworlds and visited the different realms found there. He collected gems, and rescued dragons and dragon eggs. His ultimate enemy was Gnasty Gnorc, who had attacked the Dragon Realms and trapped the dragons.

25. This time I bought an Attack FX P badge somewhere. Where am I?

From Quiz Name That Place!

Answer: Rogueport

More specifically, I'm in the Lovely Howz of Badges. Badges can be bought in all four of these places, though. I'm in "Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door".

26. The video game "Formula One 04" uses all of the circuits that made up the 2004 Formula One World Championship, including the one that hosted the Chinese Grand Prix. In which city could this circuit be found?

From Quiz Made in China

Answer: Shanghai

"Formula One 04" was first released for the Playstation 2 in July 2004 and was the first official F1 racing game to feature China's Shanghai International Circuit. The circuit was constructed between April 2003 and June 2004 and held the inaugural Chinese Grand Prix (which was won by Ferrari's Rubens Barrichello) on 26 September 2004. The game was part of an ongoing franchise of F1 racing games developed by Psygnosis (later known as Studio Liverpool) and published by Sony Computer Entertainment during the period from 2003-07 that Sony held the exclusive rights to release official F1 games. It gave players a chance to (virtually) experience driving all 18 tracks that held F1 grands prix in 2004, as well as the chance to drive all the cars and play as any of the original line up of drivers who took part in the season. It also introduced a 'career mode' that allowed players to simulate an F1 driver's career - starting off in a slow car at the back of the grid and earning the right to move up to the bigger teams that provide a genuine chance for a driver to become world champion. This question was raced into the quiz by Phoenix Rising's resident F1 fan, F1f1ona81.

27. Sirrus and Achenar, sons of Atrus, need rescuing through the solving of some extremely complicated puzzles. On which island would this be the case?

From Quiz The Many Lands of a Console

Answer: Myst

When this game was released for PlayStation in 1996, I spent hours playing it. Players must visit various "ages" in order to decipher garbled messages and solve complex puzzles before returning to Myst to piece together the clues. The more puzzles solved, the clearer the messages become and the more complex the puzzles start to become as well.

28. Choco Mountain is a track that first appeared in which "Mario Kart" game?

From Quiz My Interest is Peaked

Answer: Mario Kart 64

Choco Mountain is fairly simple in terms of design, with the winding through a canyon of what presumably is chocolate, given the name. Around two-thirds of the way around, the track loops back on itself in a precarious hairpin-like turn. What makes this turn tricky is the removal of barriers and the danger of falling rocks. The track briefly runs parallel to and above an earlier section, so it can be quite easy to fall down onto the track, forcing you to go back around the hairpin again.

29. An Egyptian-styled location (complete with Sphinx) was fabricated for use in the second wave of puzzles in what philosophical PC game?

From Quiz Desert Settings in Video Games

Answer: The Talos Principle

Released on Steam and PS4, this unique puzzle game puts you into the role of a sentient AI who, in trying to determine its origin, is forced to complete different trials involving mechanical equipment to collect items and advance rom area to area. The game's second stage is Egyptian-themed, so visiting those ones in particular will place you in expansive deserts and into ruins and pyramids. While the environment in the game doesn't necessarily affect gameplay through theme, the surroundings definitely play a role in how you construct your solutions and, in some cases, they hold hidden secrets.

30. Looking for something besides zombies and apocalyptic trash in the streets? Give this sophisticated city in the Crescent Nebula a try. What is its name again?

From Quiz Video Game Cities

Answer: Nos Astra

Nos Astra is the capital of the planet Illium, dominated by the Asari, a feminine-appearing race in the game "Mass Effect 2". While it looks like a city catering to the senses, there is an undercurrent of danger here.
