About This Quiz

Whether it's for relaxing, exploring new worlds or showing off your skills to your best friend, video games are a fun way to make use of your free time. Back in the '60s, this immersive world was just starting to gain traction, with games like Spacewar!, Hamurabi and Space Travel. But before long, Atari introduced many new types of games in the '70s, such as Pong, Jet Fighter and Breakout, which were all played in arcade environments. 

In today's world, the number of video games available seems almost overwhelming at first. For starters, there's a long list of genres, which includes stealth, survival, tactical RPG, tower defense and racing, among many others. And within each genre lie hundreds, even thousands, of games that are popular, underrated and, in some cases, way too overrated. Maybe it's Fortnite. Or perhaps it's an FPS game like Call of Duty. Either way, we're about to guess your age based on some of your No. 1 gaming picks. So whether your favorites are The Witcher 3, The Legend of Zelda, World of Warcraft or some good old-fashioned Minecraft, this immersive quiz will take you on a tour through all of the different eras of video games!
