Technically I didn't create THIS quiz, so I wouldn't necessarily be complementing my own quiz. But I do like this one just as much as my original one.

I don't think Farmville has any place on this list. And did you really need 3 Mario games? You've got so many games to choose from, and there are 3 (arguably 4) games with the same character. Fallout, Saints Row, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, just to name a few.

Also (and I now notice your complaint is 2 years old) the Reapers aren't zealots, and the Covenant in Halo are religious zealots so.

More like just overviews of the game, rather than a plot description.

Mario Bros is a separate game from Super Mario Bros. Splitting hairs, but you have to go by the 'plot,' no?

Was it just me or could the Mortal Kombat one been literally any fighting game. I mean I got it, but after typing in like tekken, dead or alive, street fighter... I mean a ton of games could fit the description I think

Yes, but it clearly says "deadly" tournament, not simply a nonlethal one. And the fate of the Earth is at stake, which isn't the case in your other suggested games that could fit.

At the very least, it's also the plot of Street Fighter.

And in Street Fighter the fights end in knockouts not in fatalities.

You should also accept Dr. Wario for the pills question; It's a variation of the same game. Google it.

Dr. Wario isn't a standalone game, though. It's one of the minigames in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ for the Game Boy Advance.

But it's the plot of Ms Pac Man? If anyone has ever seen the demo play a million times on a cabinet, it's a great clue.

Or, you know, you know, you could have solely used games that have actual plots, thereby eliminating the need for quotations around the word plot. Not everything quiz on video games needs Mario in it.
