Kind of a fun little diversion. Really annoyed me since it took forever to load, but it turned out alright.

My first try I got up to level 80 something with 27,000 points but then I really needed to pee.

Way too easy

Not that the screenshots are too easy to identify, but it's too easy to keep the timer going by skipping ones you don't know.  There should be a bigger time penalty for skipping or guessing wrong.

Also not all of them are screenshots.  The mass effect one is just a picture of the box art.  Minor quibble, but still kinda dumb.

I quit as soon as I saw Travis Touchdown.  "No More Heroes"  X  "No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle" X "No More Heroes 2" Check

Maybe I'll go back and just type wave beam man for every answer.

Spent way too much time in this. Bowed out when they started repeating, which is a really long time. I'd post my score, but at this point it's more of a score of shame than anything. Surprise surprise, I'm head of the class!

Seconding Niku's frustration with the interface. Picture of Baby Mario on Yoshi's back; clearly not Yoshi's Island 2. "Yoshi's Island" X "Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island" X "Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island" X "Super Mario World: Yoshi's Island" X *skip*

They should leave the Mario ones and boxarts out of the higher difficulty levels. Same for pop-culture items: "hey, that's The Hulk! And that's a Monopoly board! Hahaha, I'm such a geek!"

The hint for Starcraft is, "Ask a corean friend."

Yeah, it's definately not perfect. In every instance, "Bros" is accepted, but "Brothers" is not for Mario stuff. And yeah, I saw the Halo picture too. I was flabbergasted that it had to be Halo 2 specifically, when it could have definately been 3 as well.

Yeah, I don't get why stuff like monopoly is in there. I love when you get a really zoomed in title screen one though. Those one's tickle my geek spot just right.
