Who doesn’t like quizzes, besides everyone who’s had to suffer through them in high school? Quizzes in video games can be slightly different, offering unique scenarios and challenges to complete. They also carry much weightier risks from failing such as, oh, death. Let’s take a look at 15 video game bosses that tortured the player with their bizarre quizzes.
Grunty’s Furnace Fun – Banjo-Kazooie
The most immediate example that comes to mind is Banjo-Kazooie. Before fighting Gruntilda, she presents a rather odd puzzle to stop our heroes – Grunty’s Furnace Fun. There are unique panels that present everything from timed challenges (like the sandcastle puzzle) to identifying different worlds. You also have Grunty’s personal questions which are randomized each time and can only be answered by speaking to Brentilda, her sister, throughout the game.
