    Well, I can't get all of these so need some help. I won't post the ones I know yet, lets see if we can crack it.

    Give answers with a grid ref eg 1,2 (ie Row 1, Column 2).

    Uhm, I don't know many, but can have a go at a few.

    1,2 - Pacman
    1,7 - Super Mario Bros
    2,6 - Grim Fandango
    3,3-4 Space Invaders?
    8,1 - Pokemon?
    9,3 - Tetris
    10, 6 - Super Meat Boy?

    3,7 looks really familiar, but I can't place it.

    I thought of Duke Nukem for 3,5 as well, but wasn't sure if it's old enough to have that kind of graphics.

    10,2 could be Lemmings.

    Yup, those last suggestions are right. 4.7 specifically is Yoshi Egg (from SMB) and 1.3 is Link (from Zelda).

    I have nearly all now but will delay putting up list until someone screams for it lol.

    Ahhh, no wonder I recognised so few. For some reason I thought they were all really old games and that the pictures were from the actual games (so I expected the graphics to fit the era). It never entered my mind that Big Daddy or Gordon Freeman would be in there! :oops:
