Default Matt's Trivia Game

It's back again, and about time too!

Most of you know the format, but here's a refreshment for your dead cells :P Also, some new rules have been added.

- One question will be asked at a time. It'll be in this format:
Question #...
[Type of the Question > Sub-type]
The question will be here [Points for correctly answering will be here]
BONUS!: (Will not always be there; will have a point value, but is not required to be answered)
NOTE: If there are any other notes needed for the question, they shall be put after the points.

- Type of Questions can vary largely. It can be anything under the sun! From weather, to sports, to litterature, to even our very own forum; anything is up for grabs! Wait for your question type to pop up! I will try and research for questions of things that don't interest me; just to make it fair! :)

- Every ten questions, the question will be worth twice the points indicated in brackets! In case people forget, these questions will always be marked with a star. Ten-star!
example: Question #200*

- Do not edit posts. I cannot stop you, but, if you do, and I see suspicious plagarizing at work, I will not award you the points. Sorry =/;

- The quiz does not end. Well, it will when people stop answering. But, for now, it will go on for a long time!

- No flame wars, insults, or anything of the sort.

- Prizes may be awarded if people reach certain milestones. Maybe buttons for their signatures to prove they are very knowledgable or something of the sort :)

- Cross-Questions: This kind of question takes one thing from one category and another from another category and molds them together into one unique question. The categories can be as different as night and day; it can put together [TV] with [Animals] or [Women] and [Politics]! The possibilities? Endless. Because these are harder and require a larger span of knowledge, they usually score you more points.

- Have fun! This is a friendly competition :).

Question #1:
[Video Games > GameCube]
In the opening of the GameCube game "Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem", which poet/author is quoted?
BONUS! What is the exact quote they took from the Poet/author?

No one knew that? Well, the answer was "Edgar Allan Poe." I won't bother post his real quote, but it was something along the lines of:
"Deep into the Darkness staring,
Long I stood there,
Wondering, fearing, pondering."

Question #2-
[Geography -> World Capitals]
What is the current capital of France? [1 Point]

Now if that's still too hard, I don't know what's not.
