    This test is somewhat misleading. I mean, two/three of those controllers can be used cross systems.

      Cross system controllers are matched to their original systems, and can be matched for bonus points. Problem solved.

      I feel ashamed that many of my kind can’t pass this test… the cross platform is a nice touch for a bonus round though.

        Sorry, but the one on the left is the Saturn controller. Second American model, which was I think the original Japanese model, and much better than the “Americans have bigger hands” model that originally came with the system in America. The one on the right is a Genesis (or Megadrive) 6-button controller. Which is pretty much the same thing, minus two shoulder buttons.

      I was surprised to not see the Genesis controllers on the list.

      On a separate note, is it bad that I own 3/4 of this list yet? I don’t have an XBox, PS1, or Gamecube… all the rest plus Genesis are under my ownership, proudly :) And the only reason I don’t have those 3 is because… why? XD

    This isn’t really a good test, considering most of the consoles have their names stamped on the side, and the same with the controllers. Anything left is a process of elimination, or matching color schemes.

    Simply put, it’s more of a common sense test than it is a “is your girlfriend a gamer/nerd” test.

    Also, 9gag? C’mon sir!

      The names may be on the side, but my friend put the PS1 with a Wiimote. It isn’t as obvious as you might think.

    If that is the criteria by which you are to select a life mate, then you are limiting thyself greatly. Maybe (just maybe) some people don’t give a shit.

      And that’s how you know if you have a match – if they don’t care and don’t love you enough to learn it for your sake, it’s better to find someone else.

    I don’t know whats worse, the fact that I can’t figure out two of them, or that I’ve owned all these systems at one point and can’t figure out two of them.

      Through the power of Google I have figured out that I did know the two systems at first but I questioned myself and when I did that I got confused.

    Funny thing is is that I’d pass this test with flying colors AND the bonus cross platform controllers (also did you know with a ps2 to usb connection regular ps2 controllers will work on the ps3) but my boyfriend would have a difficult time with a good chunk of them. His first system was an xbox and that was his ONLY system. He’s a computer gamer but I grew up on console gaming, had every one of those minus the wii and ps3 at one point and time in my family. It’s also sad that the genesis and saturn aren’t on the list since those were big names back in the day.

    This is less of a test of skill and more of a reading test. It would be a true test if you removed all of the logos first.

    Atari 2600, Colecovision, Odysee, etc. LOL. Now I’m just showing my age!

    Granted, this might be a bit too easy.

    Most have the system/company’s name right on them.

    I think a better test would be a picture of a broken controller along with a screenshot of the game that caused this controller to be broken.

    My wife got 9 of the 11 for a passable 82. Guess that means we won’t be getting divorced. She doesn’t even play games (other than Mario Party), guess that means I’ve been working on her subconscious.

    My nerdiness shows in my anger that Sony is on it’s third iteration of the same bloody controller. I’m a pretty dedicated gamer and I had trouble deciding which sony controller was for which system.

    I can see if it’s not broke, don’t fix it but seriously, even little changes like colors beyond matte black are nice.

    Sorry for the rant, great comic.
