Not bad, but there are lot more! Think of a sport game, a fantastic-horror game and a turn based strategy game. All 3 are known games.

NES, Gamecube, Wii... Nintendo did not only has commercial success. There is a console that sold particularly bad, specialist often says it's because this console was ahead of its time... What is it?

In earlier pirated games, the hackers would have left a small coding and artistic performance on the first sector of the floppy disk, that would run before the game. How is this performance called?

I'm disappointed. :(
It was Demoscene, here is what demomakers can do in 64kB of compiled code (a floppy sector): The size is so small, that they have to generate both the 3D models, the textures, and even the music and some shader codes programmatically.

Back in the early 80's with the Atari 2600, the market of video games was flooded with poor quality games, because everyone was able to develop and publish his own game on the console. There was a huge loss of confidence, and a huge crash in the video game industry followed. Then, Nintendo found a way to regain the confidence of the buyers with the NES, their new console. What was it?

Nintendo introduced the business model of licensing third-party developers in order to authorize them to produce and distribute titles on the NES platform.
In short: Not everyone was allowed to develop and publish games anymore on this console and they had to buy the rights for it, leading to an increase of game quality.

Huh I actually learned something, the more you know....

Mhh, yes but they did something to their games that were licensed, what was it? Sorry to not have been more explicit, you can re-answer again.
