Hardcore Gamer's IQ Test by shadow502t Hardcore Gamer's IQ Test by shadow502t
How hardcore are you, when it comes to gaming? This poster layout features 375 games and more than 425 characters from gaming's past, present, and future. There are a series of hidden elements to find as well.

After a while, I may post the list of all included games, but it's fun to test yourself (I think).

This design is the result of 8 months of work, and more hours carefully cutting out characters than I care to remember. All artwork used here is from the developers or official promotional material. That way it stays closest to the original as possible.

The Download link gives you a lot larger version to look at, as some of the details are small.

This is available as a poster as well, and it goes great in a game room or office.

If you wish to have the hi-res digital file, and print it yourself at a local print shop, it's available at: [link] This will help yours truly with some student loans, so it's for a good cause too. :-)

The standard print size is 30 X 20", and you can scale down with no problems (if needed). Any Kinkos or Staples, or similar place can print it quickly and easily for you.
(The online store is giving me issues, so that link is down for the time being).

Thanks to ~BencY for the use of the background image.

Comments welcome.

Your missing King Graham for King's quest, Kane or a C&C reference from C&C, Also I don't see Minecraft's Steve in there. If I am wrong I'm sorry but C&C was my childhood and you have Starcraft references.

i can't believe how close some of my favorite games are to each other. Leon and Ada from re4 hop over iron man to Isacc Clarke from dead space and right next to him is jet from tron 2.0 (i thought i was the only one who knew about that game.) and then past war is Rubi (HAWT) from WET. And below jet's foot is the material defender's ship from DESCENT!!!

there's so much awesome mai brain might explode.
