Nice quiz idea, and good variety. This was a fun trip down memory lane, since I played several of these as a child in the '80's and early '90's.

During the pandemic, I broke out my old Nintendo and played Super Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda. This quiz reminded me that I should revisit some others, like Metroid and Kid Icarus!

How is Kid Icarus? I set up my old Nintendo once I moved earlier this year and have been kicking Zelda and Excitebike around

Such a good selection! So many classics: perfect, I love it. It really should be experienced with some other popular video game consoles.

As a retrogamer European, I got them all but the one about American football (never heard about it, but I guess that's understandable).

I lost time on Castlevania because I didn't remember the name. I could get Punch Out but I misunderstood the image. But I got 15/20 and I am 12.

The given screenshot for Tecmo Bowl is from its sequel, Tecmo Super Bowl.

Not sure what their rules are but there are some images from Tecmo Bowl here https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/nes/587684-tecmo-bowl/images?pid=587684
