First NES Game Finished * 2
    #27173399 - 01/27/21 08:46 PM (9 months, 30 days ago)

Two weeks ago, I finished my first NES game at 24 years old. It was Metroid. I may have been cursing the Jews the entire time I fought Mother Brain and her army of turrets and rinkas, but believe me when I say I enjoyed every bit of that game. I especially enjoyed fighting Ridley, but Kraid's battle was much less enjoyable for me. If you have played Metroid, what was your favorite part? (Aside from the Justin Bailey. *wink*) Also, what was your first completed NES game and what age were you when you completed it?

I started making my own map, but that got out of hand before I defeated Kraid and Ridley, so I just used an online walkthrough. :b

They would have been easy to find, but I did not seek all 255 because I felt that I would be able to defeat Mother Brain without them. I should have done it though. as I knew I would not make it in under 3 or 5 hours by the time I made this decisio. It would have made Metroids a lot easier to kill. lol.

You may be able to throw an NES at a tv in the 90's, but these days if you throw a 3DS at a flatscreen, they both break.

First NES game I ever beat was Duck Tales when I was 8ish. Second and third ones beat were he 2 Zelda games.

I finally got round to Metroid when I got some emulators when I was at uni. It’s a good game, but Super Metroid is still the best of the lot IMO :smile:

Metroid is still a major accomplishment.

I play through the original LoZ on an actual NES once a year. It's my favorite.

I think Contra may have been my first as well. Either that or Super Mario Bros.

And yeah Metroid is tough. Real tough. Anybody ever finish Ghosts & Goblins? I think that game caused thousands to throw their controllers through their television screens

Not only did I finish Ghosts and Goblins but I did it on the gameboy port which feels even more stiff, only took about 8 years :yesnod:

i think super mario 3 was my first game to beat. i remember having the strategy guide lol it had full pictures of the maps. like panoramic pics with indicators to where the power-ups were and special pipes. it was cool.

the one im most proud of for completing was BATMAN the video game. as a kid i couldn't get past level 2. i think i was 18 or 19 when i finally was able to finish it.

First NES Game Finished... [Re: wanwandrew]
    #27420195 - 08/08/21 08:41 PM (3 months, 23 days ago)

I think it was Yoshi's Island or Link to the Past. I used to play with my grandma. She would always have me take on the dungeon bosses because she couldn't react fast enough. I was 8 or 9.

I never actually finished Metroid, though I can't remember why not.

I don't think I'd have the patience to sit through OG Metroid now.

Too mazey, no map, etc.


Metroid Prime is a beautiful game though. Emulated at High Res.

OG Metroid is awesome, but it does take a commitment. I prefer Super Metroid for pick up and play. I can play that one almost anytime!

Earthbound SNES is my currently playing, though.

Earthbound is exceptionally eclectic, eccentric, and fucked up, lol.
