Even those only vaguely familiar with video games probably know names like Super MarioGrand Theft Auto, and Call of Duty. They’re the franchises that have come to dominate gaming over the last 50 years or so. Some of those franchises are currently being updated almost every year, while the new releases in others have become milestone events that seem to reshape the industry. New franchises come along and others fade away, but the biggest and best video game franchises have been slowly growing for years and, in some cases, decades.

Honestly, it can all be a little difficult to keep up with. For as significant as gaming’s biggest franchises are, they’re also…well, big. Over a long enough period of time, it’s easy to forget when specific games in certain franchises were released and where exactly they fit into the history of those series. You may know the names, and you’ve probably even played the games. When push comes to shove, though, do you think you could chronologically organize those franchises?

There’s only one way to find out. Take our video game franchise quiz to see how well you remember the history of the video game franchises that changed everything.
