From Resident Evil to Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, viruses are a video game staple. But how much do you remember about them?

20th June, 2020 By Ian Morris

A virus rampaging across the world; streets and towns deserted; and allegedly, no-one's safe. Yes, the real world's felt more like a game plot than reality in recent months - but if nothing else, at least it served as inspiration for a quiz.

Viruses have long been a go-to staple of game plots (especially if they involve zombies) but there's more to video game viruses than just Resident Evil. From A Plague Tale: Innocence through Deus Ex all the way up to Doctor Mario, it seems game creators love nothing more than a good virus - but how much do you remember about the infectious menaces that have shaped so many game worlds? 11 questions this time, across a huge range of topics, including some games based around cyber-viruses for good measure. As always, let us know how you get on!
