Gamer-Made Video Game Puzzles Needs Your Full Attention [UPDATED]


[UPDATE] I've gotten more solutions for the third puzzle (after the break), but F4 is still pissing me off.

See these images? They are all gaming related, all each square holds a clue to a particular video game. One particular chap over at NeoGaf uploaded the images (or at least linked to them; subversus is his name, and says "lock if old" at the top of the post. One can only imagine) and caused a frenzy of thought process, and giddyness once one square that you couldn't solve was solved, such as D1 on the second puzzle (at least for me).


Think you can name them all? Go ahead and give them a whirl, then check past the break to see the third puzzle, and if you're correct.
