    Congratulations to the winners, you guys deserve it :)

    As for the quiz, the multiple choice questions were pretty easy, you could google most of them, except the fable one was a bit of a debate. The two screenshots could also found easily by reverse image searching. Google was making very good guesses with both games. I was actually way off with the unique views however... I checked a ranking website that also listed unique views. I facepalmed hard when I read about the skyward sword leak, because the number I found turned out to be 8 times larger...

    Got all the questions right but was thinking something around 380k. Do you know how much GBAtemp grew in the past 3 years Costello, do you have the numbers/statistics?

    My only problem with the Fable question was this:
    - Gamers got upset because it resembled on on-rails shooter due to the navigation being pulled for that particular demo.
    - It is not entirely on rails. That implies you have no control over where you're going. That has not been confirmed in any sense. In fact, they went into detail about how you would control the horse and carriage for navigation.
    - In the end, it is simply a first person shooter until there is a release far enough along in development to display every game play element.

    As it stands, that was a question that was formed around assumptions and the words of a single man. We've seen many times that the words of one person can be misleading.

    Regardless, my guess was far off and that doesn't matter. I just couldn't state this in the actual quiz thread, for obvious reasons, and I wanted to get it out there.

    Congratulations to the winners. You're better at the number guessing game than I will ever be. :P

    Gonna start protesting this, the answer to #10 was definitely "A fuckload". That's what I put at least.

    I DEMAND SATISFACTION.

    Gah! All first 9 were right and the last one was about 1,300,000 IIRC. Not that bad and far off, though clearly many have put 1,000,000 ± a few thousand (now that I think about it, it's quite clear why.. 1 million is a nice round number :P).

    -Qtis

    ps. @Costello: Do you happen to have a statistic of what the unique visitor amount was when a Pokémon game like Black/White was released/other possible peak time (which I couldn't imagine)? I presume it was higher than HGSS after which I decided to avoid most of GBAtemp when the next game was released (and I was clearly right considering the flood of pokémon related posts back then) :P

    EDIT: Also a big congratulations to all the winners! Good answers on the first ones and quite good guesses on the last question :)

    Meh. I got the answer to the first 9 questions, but my guess to question 10 was off by a factor of 10 (I think I guessed about 95,000). Oh well.
