Announcement: Gaming Target opens a video game trivia section.


The video game world is full of little bits of trivia, easter eggs, hidden messages, buried treasure and winking references to the world at large. Ever since Warren Robinett hid his name in a secret room in Adventure for the Atari 2600, gamers have been obsessed with tracking down these allusions and all around hugh-hush information. So it is without further adieu that I introduce the new Trivia Section at Gaming Target. Over 100 games now feature a Trivia page, with more being added every day.

A link to the browseable Trivia database can always be found in the navigation column on the left side of the site. Links to each game's individual Trivia page can also be found by clicking the "Trivia" button near the top of a game's profile.



To get you started on your quest for total video game knowledge, here are ten bits of trivia that you may not know:

  • The title of Herzog Zwei for the Sega Genesis is German for "Duke Two."

  • Resident Evil 0 for the GameCube is the only game in Resident Evil's "main story" to be released on a single platform.

  • The design of Rapture in BioShock for the PC and Xbox 360 was inpspired by Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged.

  • Gradius for the NES was the first game to feature the Konami Code.



  • New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS was the first Mario game to include the word "Bros." in the title since 1990's Super Mario Bros. 3.

  • Too Human has been in development for almost ten years on four different platforms: the PlayStation, the GameCube, the Xbox and now the Xbox 360.

  • Super Monkey Ball for the GameCube was the first game published by Sega after their transition to becoming a software-only "third-party" publisher.

  • Many of the patients in Trauma Center: Under the Knife for the Nintendo DS are named after characters from the television shows Scrubs, House and ER.

  • Star Fox: Assault for the GameCube was originally announced as "Star Fox 2" even though it would have been the third Star Fox game.

  • If you played Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day for the Nintendo DS on April 28, 2006 Dr. Kawashima would ask you "What was an important announcement that happened yesterday?" April 27, 2006 was the date the Nintendo Revolution was renamed the Nintendo Wii.
