16-Bit RPGs

This week's Trivia: 16-Bit RPGs

This week's quiz brought to you by Fooknasty. The time of 16-bit RPGs during the SNES and Sega Genesis heyday will always remain the golden age of RPGs for me. There is no point in my life where I spent more time grinding levels, learning cure and fire spells, and frantically looking for a save point in a dungeon before my mom made me turn off my game! Let's see if we can ignite anyone else's nostalgia with this week's quiz.
