View Full Version : Test Your Achievement Knowledge!!!

07-05-2011, 03:06 AM

So basically I made this quiz on Sporcle (great site btw) where you are given an achievement and its description and are asked for the game. Some of them are quite simple and well-known, but others are more vague and obscure.

50 games in 7 minutes. Think you can do it? Try it and post how you do and anything that you think could make it better, as I can edit it at any time.

EDIT: Don't post images of the game directly in the thread please... it sort of defeats the purpose if people can just look at the answers...

EDIT 2: Sequel!!! Good luck!!!


EDIT 3: 1 minute added to each because I'm just that nice. And I think a little more breathing room was in order.

EDIT 4: Achievement tiles quiz!!! This was a pain to make and I'm pretty sure it's the easiest yet. Good luck!

07-05-2011, 03:23 AM
Pretty good challenge. I only got 27/50.

EDIT: Got 27/50 again on the second quiz. Should have been 28 though - minus the captials I typed in the game for Bloody Feet exactly how the answer key showed and it didn't give it to me.

EDIT 2: Only 9/25 on the tile quiz. I should have recognized more.

My results:

"You got 27 out of 50 answers correct"

A lot better than I thought i'd do.
Also, I didn't look at the list before I hit the start button.
All of the ones I missed were from games i've never played, and so were a lot of the ones that I got :P


07-05-2011, 03:34 AM
Not bad I got 21, should have been 22, knew the game, couldn't remember the name.

07-05-2011, 03:52 AM
44/50 Right.

After a while i just started typing in games that i thought would go with it all lol.

44/50 for me, the ones I got wrong just so happened to be from games I had no passing interest in.

07-05-2011, 04:29 AM
Dammit. My friend tells me I'm an achievement whore... guess he's right. 50/50...

"You got ALL 50 answers correct"

20/50 once I saw which onjes I missed I felt pretty stupid >.<
I kept thinking the plumber one was Assassin's creed -_-

07-05-2011, 05:34 AM
You got 26 out of 50 answers correct
With a few more minutes I could have gotten to about 32, but no more, especially since almost all games I missed I've never played.

I got 34 out of 50. There with the last 5 or so, I just started spamming names of games I could think of to see if they would work, haha. Pretty cool little quiz.

07-05-2011, 05:49 AM
I got 30, but there was a few I couldn't spell XD

07-05-2011, 05:54 AM
30/50 .. Damn some of them i should of known the answer :P Ohwell

07-05-2011, 06:43 AM
I got 48/50. Didn't know "Proud Millionaire" and "Ethereal Executioner". Cool quiz :)

Didn't resort to spamming answers, and some of the newer games I had no clue on (Duke Nukem), but there were a few where I knew I knew it, but just couldn't place it (Pt, Marathon, etc). I'm disappointed that I didn't get the South Park one, though.

07-05-2011, 07:04 AM
Got 30. Was happy to see the Vesperia one on there because I've been playing that recently -.- Cheevs are such a pain on that game.

Thanks for reminding me of that sites existence, so addictive..

07-05-2011, 08:12 AM
27/50. Pretty happy with that since I havn't played most of the games on the list lol

07-05-2011, 08:21 AM
28/50 not too shabby!!

19/50.. good quiz though.

07-05-2011, 10:38 AM
You got 18 out of 50 answers correct, not even half lol.

07-05-2011, 11:00 AM
29 though after seeing the answers come up at the end I knew most of them I just could not place them in that time limit :P most the games I got wrong I've not even played said game but seen the achievements in passing.

39 out of 50 http://www.trueachievements.com/images/smiley/smile.gif I'm so sad http://www.trueachievements.com/images/smiley/laugh.gif Good quiz :P

07-05-2011, 12:04 PM
i got 23/50. i hadn't played most of the games there but somehow managed my way to that score.

I got 48/50. Didn't know "Proud Millionaire" and "Ethereal Executioner". Cool quiz :)

lol i got proud millionaire as part of my lame 23 score despite never playing any game in the series. i just remember seeing the list before i guess. i still have no idea what the other one is

07-05-2011, 12:26 PM
I ended up getting 30 out of 50 on the quiz :)

07-05-2011, 12:32 PM
I'm terrible! Worst score of the thread, bah!

...You got 17 out of 50 answers correct

Sniffle...see, now nobody can see it unless they click!

I'm proud that I got all the ones I'd know right. I haven't played a lot of those games yet...and the only reason I knew the Halo Reach one was because I compared achievements with a guy two days ago and I have a photographic memory: if I unlock an achievement, I'll remember it...or if I read an achievement, I'll remember it. Doesn't just have to be achievements...but, I only glanced through his list and the requirements yet I remembered it word for word after staring at it for half a second. X_X;

Whoopdie doo, DIDN'T HELP ME SCORE BETTER!! *sits in a corner*

07-05-2011, 01:13 PM
21 I'm good with that. I've never played the games I missed or I would feel worse.

07-05-2011, 01:47 PM
I got 30/50, should've really got 31 but completely forgot the Castle Crashers one.

07-05-2011, 03:39 PM
managed to answer 37 correct, very nice game, thanks OP :)

07-05-2011, 03:41 PM
I got 37/50, but after 30 I mostly just started typing in popular games and games I knew existed.

07-05-2011, 04:01 PM
I got 41 out of 50 right. As someone above already said I just started quessing games with about 2 minutes left.

07-05-2011, 04:17 PM
48/50 couldn't bloody spell the games right :/ I was sat there thinking I'm sure its thats game :/

I got 26/50 but it could have been a little higher, I didn't read a couple of them, but i knew the answers :(

19/50, Pretty tough.

07-05-2011, 05:04 PM
I made a sequel because I was bored. I think it's harder than the original but I'm not really the best tester since I made it. Here's the link:


Best of luck! This time it's green too! Though if that's too annoying I can change the color...

I'll put this in the first post as well.

07-05-2011, 05:58 PM
These were fun...i got roughly 35ish on both...so I didn't really find the 2nd one harder than the first.....many of them I had not played but could guess...and for every one of those, there were ones I have on my card but could not for the life of me remember the game (italian plumber for example)....then there were plenty of games/achievements I have flat out never played/heard of.

I'm really impressed with anybody who scored over 45 without resorting to looking it up..and/or looking over the list first before starting the timer.

07-05-2011, 06:27 PM
Only 27/50 on the second one, 7 below the first test, though I did get the right answer for 4 more, I just couldn't spell worth a damn on some of them.

07-05-2011, 06:37 PM
....only got about 17.

I haven't played most of those games! Fun to try though, good idea.

07-05-2011, 06:45 PM
48 out of 50.

I put down "Blacklight: Tango Down" for Fear the Pink Mist. xP

Also, what's the Eretheral Queen one?

07-05-2011, 06:48 PM
Great test. I only got 8 right though :mad:

07-05-2011, 07:45 PM
On the first I got 35/50
On the second I got 31/50

These were awesome

07-06-2011, 12:25 AM
Got 49/50 on the second test, so close again! :P

Also, what's the Eretheral Queen one?

It's from Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

07-06-2011, 12:41 AM
I did pretty bad with only 22 on the first and only 18 on the second. I would like to see more of these quizzes though because I really enjoyed them.

07-06-2011, 02:41 AM
Second quiz:
"You got 25 out of 50 answers correct"

Meh. Decent D:
There were a lot more I didn't know, and a lot that were on the tip of my tongue/couldn't remember the exact name.

By the way, on the first one, two of them are labeled "AN-I-MAL!!!"

07-06-2011, 03:08 AM
By the way, on the first one, two of them are labeled "AN-I-MAL!!!"

I know. I was looking through games and saw it so I figured it would be ironic to have two achievements with the same name. And two achievements with the same name AND description, but I grouped those together on both quizzes.

I'm working on an achievement tile quiz right now. I'll try to finish it soon, but I need to figure out how to get the image on Sporcle.

EDIT: And here it is... good luck!


07-06-2011, 05:33 AM
37/50 was trying to finish typing fable when i ran out. Only 3 I didnt know. The Ethreal queen one threw me cause 2 jrpgs use the same character name. star ocean and infinite undiscovery

On the pic quiz only missed 3 :D

07-06-2011, 10:27 AM
Pretty cool quiz, although I did terrible :(

Had 17/50 on the first quiz, 20/50 and 17/25. Was just too tired to think for most of them.

07-07-2011, 01:13 AM
19/50 on the second. UGH, still pretty terrible. What's bad is that I missed some I recognized, but because I never really earned them I couldn't think atm. Some of the games I just used common sense (like enemies or whatnot associated with it, for example Gears 2)...

ugh. Now to take the other one.

10...out of 25. I...I missed the Banjo-Tooie one. I can't believe I missed...UGH, 4 minutes and I couldn't think then that stupid Marines ad at the bottom took up the entire screen, lagging out my computer and I was out of time to finish more!

Strangely, I got Gears of War 2 right...by looking at the wrong image.

I thought the image for NIER was of a chick holding a Lancer weapon in Gears, so I was like...that's Gears of War 2! Turns out I was wrong...;>_> but right, cause the other one I got anyways.

I'm still dissapointed that Banjo-Tooie I couldn't recognize...I was running through my mind what games have a friggin pair of underwear for an achievement. I kept thinking of that game where you play as the knight in underpants for some reason...but he has hearts on it...ugh.

07-07-2011, 01:45 AM
13/50 :'( damn! better go read all the achievement's names i have

07-07-2011, 08:19 AM
17/50 on the first quiz, 12/50 on the second, and 10/25 on the picture cheevo quiz. :(

Dang - for a cheevo whore, I'm pretty bad. :P Still, great quizzes mate!

07-07-2011, 09:01 AM
Got 41 on the first quiz
Got 44 on the second quiz.

I need to get a life >.>

07-07-2011, 04:30 PM
30/50 30/50 14/25 not too bad I think.

Capn Doug
07-07-2011, 04:59 PM
17/25 on the picture quiz. So far the big consolation is that I haven't had the true stupidity moment and missed one from a agame I have in my collection. I knew I knew one of the tiles, though. I just couldn't place it.

07-07-2011, 07:28 PM
28/50 for quizzes 1 and 2 and the picture one was 14/25.

Make more please!

07-07-2011, 08:32 PM
I got 25/50 on the first one...

07-07-2011, 10:22 PM
this is fun

1st quiz: 20 out of 50
2nd quiz: 23 out of 50
3rd quiz: 7 out of 25...wow I sucked at that last one lol

07-07-2011, 10:41 PM
I only took one and I got 19 its actually pretty challenging

07-07-2011, 10:49 PM
I know. I was looking through games and saw it so I figured it would be ironic to have two achievements with the same name. And two achievements with the same name AND description, but I grouped those together on both quizzes.

My bad. I honestly didn't know there were two achievements with that same name, lol.
I thought it was a typo.

EDIT: 11 out of 25 on the achievement tile one. That one was difficult.

08-01-2011, 11:05 PM
1st game 6/50
2nd game 11/50
3rd game 3/25

08-02-2011, 10:43 AM

08-02-2011, 01:38 PM

I am satisfied. Out of 5 games I played a lot on that list, I remembered 4.:drunk

8 out of 50 in the second quiz (or 8 out of 8 I played enoough to know them)

08-02-2011, 03:27 PM
pretty tough, got 12/25 :P

08-02-2011, 03:56 PM
22 and 28, 11 on the tiles.

08-02-2011, 06:01 PM
16 then 23 then 7 im disappointed in myself

08-03-2011, 02:45 AM
Snagged 31/50, but it should've been 32. It didn't give me Hexic HD even though I typed it in. Also personally think I should've been given the one for Armored Core: For Answer. I just didn't remember the "for" in it >_<

Embarrassedthat I missed Quake 4 and Alice, but other than that it was a couple JRPGs and a bunch of Arcade games, niether of which I'm interested in playing.

Super Choop
08-03-2011, 03:40 AM
Got 24 of them correct. I'm surprised that I missed Quake 4 and Castle Crashers.

08-13-2011, 02:53 PM
Hey guys, I made another quiz. Hopefully this one's more doable than the past since well... everyone's heard of these games.

Top 100 Most Played Xbox 360 Games (http://www.sporcle.com/games/dertswa687o/avatar-is-not-an-answer)

The data is based on TA's list of games and number of people played so it isn't perfect but it gets the job done. There's bonus answers for #101, #111, and #374. #374 has significance to me so I had to add it :)

Best of luck!

08-13-2011, 03:13 PM
i did 21/50 :( games like guitar hero 3 wouldnt pop out

jules the great
08-13-2011, 03:47 PM
hahaha i suck so bad 17/50 and Ive played most of those games. But yeah i missed a few because of spelling or incomplete games.

08-13-2011, 03:54 PM
46/50 on the first title quiz, 33/50 on the second title quiz and 9/25 on the tile quiz xD

08-13-2011, 04:35 PM
Am I too obsessed with achievements? I got 42 on the first title quiz, 47 on the second title quiz, and 15 on the tiles quiz :confused:

Is there something wrong with me?

I Cullen I
08-13-2011, 05:45 PM

2nd quiz 13/50 man i did so bad lol i just couldnt think :(

Tile quiz : 12/25 enjoyed that one.

08-13-2011, 08:06 PM
1st Quiz:

15/50 baaad really baaaaaaaad. :o

2nd Quiz:

18/50 Oh come on, really. :mad:

3rd Quiz:

9/25 -.-

Nicely done dertswa687o btw. I had lots of fun with the quizzes. ;)

08-15-2011, 01:43 AM
20/50. Not really good if I say so.

08-15-2011, 09:03 AM
I got 24/50 on the first quiz. I guess that isn't too bad. Almost more than half. I was about to put LEGO Stars Wars, but didn't have time, and I put Forza Motorsport 2, instead of Forza Motorsport 3, so I could have gotten those two right.

08-15-2011, 06:32 PM
did the newest quiz and only got 24 out of 100 :(

08-15-2011, 08:03 PM
31/50, the rest were games I had never played lol

08-15-2011, 11:51 PM
Did quite well on most of them tbh the last one i got 80/100 which isn't too bad tbh my mate was laughing as i was screaming out titles down the mic put a few in but weren't spelt right :(

08-16-2011, 05:42 AM
That was a good quiz

09-06-2011, 06:05 PM
24/50 on the first one. Decent i guess

09-06-2011, 11:28 PM
13/50 on the first. 21/50 on the second. 13/25 on the third. 61/100 on the last. Entertaining but some of them didn't register although I spelled them right. Still, it was a bit of fun.

09-07-2011, 02:36 AM
Trying it out now.

First one: 22/50

second one: 15/50

*I could swear an answer comes up after lol - twice now I've missed on obvious one*

Third: 6/25

top 100: 42/100
