Video games are for kids, right? Wrong! 
If you are still thinking that, you are missing a huge world of entertainment. Long gone are the days when video games were silly and created for kids alone. Nowadays, a serious successful adult can play games and be amazed by their quality. Besides, many games are tailored for the older audience now. Many titles get 16+ and even 18+ ratings. 
In the recent decade, the popularity of video games has risen among the adult population. Be it the result of the lockdown or it happened a bit earlier, many people are playing now! There are dozens if not hundreds of games tailed to particular niche audiences as well as the AAA titles for the wide audience. Each can find a game that would tick all the boxes for them! 
If you've been in the community long, I’m sure you are ready to show off your knowledge of video games. How many have you played? Do you think it’s enough to be considered a seasoned gamer? Let’s find out! 

Gaming IQ 

Now, when it comes to mechanics, all games are both similar and very different at the same time. As a gamer, you do have a certain skill that automates the basics of gameplay. Like you don’t need to be taught how to walk or jump, or what direction seems like a logical continuation of the map. At the same time, each game introduces its own mechanics for fighting, going through obstacles, skill development and so on. 
Thus, we have decided to test your knowledge on game trivia instead. It’s much more clear than the gameplay nuances of each game! 
So, this is a video gaming trivia after all! If you’d like to show more in-depth knowledge of your favorite titles, we’ll gladly create a new “Ultra-Nightmare” mode quiz. Just let us know!
