About This Quiz

For many people, their childhood memories are about playing their favorite video games. We might have taken such free time for granted when we were kids, but that doesn't mean you can't relive those fun memories again. In fact, in today's quiz, we want you to use your imagination by playing some video games, just like you did when you were a kid!

Video games have also developed over the years, just like people. Gone are the days of horrible graphics and glitches through dungeons (OK, maybe they still exist in some games). Now our eyes are treated to a spectacle of vibrant worlds, deadly boss fights and weapons that we can only dream of swinging around. So maybe you're like Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII, a man who is strong, brave and a true fan favorite. Or perhaps you like to hide in the shadows like Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid. He definitely knows a thing or two about sneaking around, but he can also fight when the situation calls for it. 

So, which kind of iconic video game character lies within you? Well, the only way to find out is by taking this gaming quiz now!
