Post every time you beat a game.

Post by GyroVorbis » Sun Jun 25, 2006 5:48 pm

I finally beat Jet Grind Radio for Dreamcast. I've been meaning to take that game out for over a year now.

Definitly one of my favorites. The graphics look pretty amazing with the VGA box too. Nice music on the later stages.

EDIT:Please refrain from posting ending spoilers. If you need to post a spoiler, make sure you add the word SPOILER above the paragraph with it posted. We don't want to ruin new games for people that haven't played them yet. :melancholy:

Great idea for a thread! A few I beat very recently:

-Trace Memory (NDS)
-Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney (NDS)
-Sonic Rush (NDS)
-New Super Mario Bros. (NDS)

I have to say I'm really enjoying my Nintendo DS now more than ever, and it shows with the amount of time I spend playing it.

Games on my hit list/currently playing:

-Test Drive Le Mans (DC)
-Virtua Tennis (DC)
-Resident Evil 4 (GC)
-Killer 7 (GC)

Within the past two weeks, I've beaten:

New Super Mario Bros
Trace Memory (working on my second time through now)
Oblivion (just started a new character yesterday)
Bone: Out from Boneville (bought and beaten on the same day. Depressingly short)

Yeah, I think that's it.

I guess you liked it? I thought it as pretty good, despite being very repetitive and short.

Recently I've beaten:

- Diddy Kong Racing - N64 (for the 2nd time)
- Pac 'n Roll - DS

I'm also about to beat Pac-Man World 2 for Gamecube but it's so darn boring I don't think I can finish it. I just bought it because Pac-Man Vs. was included, which was developed by Miyamoto.

It was alright. Nothing special. I just wanted to play it a second time because I didn't get all of D's memories, and I'm dying to know how he died. That, and the second time through all the DS cards say different things, so that's a nice incentive too. But yeah, I must know how he died and why he has that hand mark on his chest.

I don't get to play many games anymore, so it's rare when I actually finish one. The most recent game completions were...

HL2: Episode One (yeah...it's like 4 hours...but still...)
FarCry Instincts (Xbox)

I'm currently playing:
FF7
Secret of Mana
Mario Tennis (GBA)

1) It was wayyyyy too easy. I'm not going to go on and say how short it was, because it wasn't *that* short, but the easiness of the game made it seem that way. There were no levels that made me wonder how to do them, or no levels that prevented a challenge to me in any way. Perhaps it is because we have grown up with these games, and they are starting to get tiresome, but I really did not have that much fun playing the game. There were fire flowers EVERYWHERE and it was ridiculously easy to get extra lives... I believe I finished the game (with the bonus worlds with about 62 extra lives. While the big mushroom was neat, it was quite annoying how it essentially let you skip through a level, and when returning back to normal you kept momentum which resulted in a couple lost lives. The small Mario was neat, but it was not too unique/underutilized.

Also whenever i got to a boss I had a fire flower, which resulted in an easy 5 second kill. Even the last boss was able to be taken down with a fire flower =\

To me it felt more like a chore to get through the levels than anything. I got excited when I saw a Haunted House (a la SMW), but alas, there was only one of them and it was pretty darn easy. I also had really high expectations for it, but I guess I shouldn't have. Oh well.

I got all of the memories the first time through. I might play it again just to see what it says. Supposedly if you play it through for a third time it says something different yet again :lol:

I too thought that was too easy of a game, and ended up selling it off on ebay after beating all the worlds. As a point of reference, I do remember there being at least 3 haunted houses.
