    5 Ouch! Come on version 2. I need more points!!! 😉

  2. Skoul says:

    6, honestly better than I thought I’d do.

  3. Outcast says:

    hey you should have a video game character contest

  4. JR19759 says:

    @Outcast- what exactly do you mean? Obviously we can’t do a contest where people redesign video game characters because copyright is a thing. But we could do a contest where people design characters that they would put in video games. But not for a while, we have a theme for the moment.

  5. Nug says:

    Hmm I only got 3.
    With the zelda question… you counting some kind of Japanese versions also?
    I would have said pc somewheres in the list on question 9, but that’s not really a console now is it? 😉

  6. Bael says:

    Nada. Just not my thing, unfortunately.

  7. JR19759 says:

    @Nug- Nope, all of the Zelda games I was counting have had a North American and European release. And yeah PC isn’t a console as it was originally designed for something other than gaming.
