Well, it's a new year so shall we get into completing some games 'round here? As always, the goal of this challenge is to beat games on as many systems as possible in one calendar year. Nothing new there.
What is however, is that in addition to monitoring the completion of specific systems, I'm going to keep up with the total number of individual games that everyone finishes. As you can see, everyone involved has their very own box which will serve to keep up both their systems and total games beaten. I've put mine in the format that I intend to use, but if everyone could just provide me with a list of their systems I can do the legwork of putting it together on this thread. Hopefully this will make it easier for everyone to keep up with their completions, as I realize not everyone is as anal as I am in monitoring their lists.
I'd like to give a shout-out to Razeak for coming up with the idea for this competition and I'm honored to carry the torch that he started. Well, that's about all I've got to say here, so let the gaming begin!
- 50% of systems completed, - 100% of systems completed, - 0 games completed, - 5 games completed, - 10 games completed, - 20 games completed (additional gold stars for every ten), - top user in systems completed, - top user in games beaten, - badge leader, - user Tad
The following icons are earned when you complete at least two games in each category
image Girly Vidyagamer -------------------- image Mega Manly Vidyagamer -------------------- image JRPG Vidyagamer -------------------- image Hyrulian Hero Vidyagamer -------------------- image Raccoon City Vidyagamer -------------------- image 2nd Amendment Vidyagamer -------------------- image Race Drivin' Vidyagamer -------------------- image "Destroy the Core!"

Girly: beat a game that is predominantly targeted towards a feminine audience #metoo Mega Manly: beat a game in the Mega Man universe JRPG: beat a JRPG Hyrulian Hero: beat a Zelda game Raccoon City: beat a Resident Evil game 2nd Amendment: beat an FPS Race Drivin': beat a racing game "Destroy the Core!": beat a SHMUP Super Sonic: beat a game in the Sonic universe Super Mayrio: beat a game in the Mario universe Hoppin' & Boppin': beat a side scrolling, 2D platformer (non-Metroidvania) Pile Drivin': beat a belt-scrolling brawler/beat 'em up Street Fightin': beat a 1-on-1 fighter Bomber Manly: beat a game in the Bomberman franchise egg: beat a puzzler Pocket Monster: beat a game in the Pokémon franchise Billy Mitchell: beat a retro arcade/pinball game Bear & Bird: beat a 3D platformer and/or collect-a-thon Sigh "Metroidvania": beat an open ended 2D platformer that plays similarly to games from the Metroid franchise and/or post-SotN Castlevanias Ninja Gayden: beat a 3D hack-and-slash Vault Boy: beat an open world game and/or a Western RPG Grown-Ass Man: complete a game from the following series: Castlevania (pre-SotN), anything From Software, and Contra (and any other 2D shooter, for that matter). The first individual game that I included was Cuphead. If you feel like you beat a balls hard game and are deserving of this icon, post on here and the community will deem whether you earn it or not.
Lastly, despite the fact that several games fit multiple categories, a particular completion only counts towards one icon. For example: Super Mario World would count towards the Super Mayrio icon, but not the Hoppin' & Boppin' one. I understand this could get a little confusing, but that's how it's gonna be! #littlebill

Just beat Wirehead for Sega CD. As you might have guessed, it's an FMV game with only QTEs and nothing else. Even better, you can only guess on the QTEs, there are rarely any hints as to what the correct answer is, so you just need to brute force it. Sheer agony.
Alright, everyone should be looking tip-top! Nice to see @JD get on the board and @Dasgessabel back in the fold! Congrats to @Slickriven for conquering all 22 of your systems; I tip my cap to you! @BloodPuppetX, I still have faith that you can end up on top, but you better get on it!
PS- @Renaissance2K, I'm only (lulz) counting 77 on your list. I double checked, but make sure I'm not missing anything.
>> I want Pinball to be added because I'm going to get a virtual pinball cab. That
>> way I can have like 100+ games beat!
> Are they pinball video games? If so, I'm sure there's a way we could work them in
Haha I guess that's up for debate. They are virtual pinball recreations on a screen. So maybe no? But then there are VPX fan made tables so those aren't real tables that exist. It's just really up to how you feel, lol. Not a big deal to me but I have a virtua pin coming in soon and I will probably play it alot.
DKC was easily my favorite SNES gaming memory as a kid, but I played with a friend, was his title and we never beat it, that I can recall. I got into it earlier this year on the SNES classic, but for some reason didn't stick with it. I do want to finish it so maybe I'll focus on it in '21 and do the 2 sequels as well.
DKC 1-3 are all so good. 1 and 2 were definitely some of my best gaming memories growing up. I only played 3 once (borrowed from a relative but had to give back quickly) and didn't really get into it. I finally went back and beat it a couple years ago and loved it. The difficulty gets pretty brutal near the end.
Music was one of the best things about DKC, I can actually still hear those tunes in my head today. The water world one is a personal favorite, but even the map tune is good... and has been in my head since I read Blood's post.
> |>> DKC 2 has a top five soundtrack on SNES. That's not an opinion.
>> Top 5 isn't even a question. For me, it's tied at #1 with Secret of Mana.
> Chrono Trigger, Super Castlevania IV, Contra 3, and FF6 are all in the conversation
> too, imo.
Chrono Trigger and FF6 are definitely in my top 5, but I put DKC2 and SoM over both of them pretty easily. Largely because nearly every single song on the DKC2 and SoM soundtracks is a banger, while CT and FF6 have a lot of just ok songs. I haven't listened to the Super Castlevania IV soundtrack very much to be honest, but based on my memory of it from playing the game, it's very good but doesn't beat the other 4. Never listened to the Contra 3 soundtrack at all, but it doesn't stand out to me from gameplay. I'll give it a listen some time.
I've completely forgotten the Axiom Verge soundtrack myself. Unfortunately, I was playing DKC with the volume really low. I'll turn it up for DKC2 so I can see what I'm missing. I like FFVI most of all on SNES, simply because I played it so much and the music is easier for me to remember. By comparison, I only played through Secret of Mana once.
Haven't played DKC2, so no opinion on the soundtrack, but based on 1, I am not surprised at the praise from y'all. I should look into listening to some SNES soundtracks while working. I do like 80's synth and other EDM flavors so that could be worth while. I know I have a 30+ min YT loop video of one of the Star Fox tracks that was really good. Plus a few LttP tracks stand out in my memory as well.
> Haven't played DKC2, so no opinion on the soundtrack, but based on 1, I am not surprised
> at the praise from y'all.
I've said many times that DKC2 is better than DKC1 in virtually every way, and the soundtrack is definitely no exception. The DKC1 soundtrack is great, but DKC2 takes video game music to a whole other level.
> I should look into listening to some SNES soundtracks while
> working. I do like 80's synth and other EDM flavors so that could be worth while.
I love it. I can't listen to anything with lyrics, it distracts me, so video game soundtracks are perfect. I highly recommend taking the time to seek them out in spc format, the quality is amazing and noticeably different.
Defeated the loathsome Spider Mastermind in DOOM (1993) on . Played through most of the campaign in 16:9, which in retrospect wasn't such a wise move; 4:3 looked so much better. What, however, can one say about the game that hasn't been said a million times over? Nothing, that's what one can say.
@Antipop I beat Hitman Go: Definitive Edition on PC.
Haven't done all the secondary bonus objectives but cleared every level. I bought this on PC a couple of years ago because I remembered enjoying it in the short time I owned a Vita. It's still pretty fun. I own Lara Croft Go on iOS so I may do that next, since I remember liking that too.
Also for PC I beat DLC Quest.
It's a short little spoof game that makes you "buy" DLC with coins you find throughout the world to make you upgrade enough to progress in the game. It's from 2012, but it feels especially on-the-nose with EA today. Took me about 40 minutes to finish.
56 games down.
Also, DOOM 1993 still rules, especially when I played with GZDoom to modernize it a bit.
>> Fun little preview! Took all of 35 minutes to complete. Should honestly be a free
>> demo to advertise the upcoming Bright Memory Infinite.
> This game looks cool. I know it basically is a preview of the actual game coming
> out (Infinite) but I would give this a shot for $8. Not on PS5 unfortunately. Is

It was a cool experience. I guess it sorta acts as a prequel to the upcoming full game. Instead of telling you the prior events, you get to play them. Totally not missing anything major story-wise though.
I think it's only going to be on Xbox and PC, but I could be wrong.
In trying to decide on a personally important replay to be game #80, I settled on FreQuency. I had a blast with it back when it was released, and it introduced me to a number of artists and producers that I still listen to today. Plus, when Guitar Hero and Rock Band briefly took over the world, I could sit there like a hipster and point out that I was playing tracked rhythm games for years by that point.
Unfortunately, even with a PVM and a brand new Dual Shock 2, I think I've concluded that I don't have the memory or the reflexes to complete the game anymore. Indeed, even back in 2001, finishing the game on Expert - the only difficulty with an actual ending - was nothing short of miraculous, so attempting to repeat that feat as an old fart was probably a pipe dream.
What a bummer.
Combing through my Backloggery to find something else worth re-tackling.
Yeah my systems list will be different next year too. Generally, unless I own the original platform the game was made for, I just count older games for the system I beat them on. I'll count PS4 games I beat next year for my PS5 since that's the system I'm playing on.
I also have beaten most of my GBA games and I have a very small collection. So I have to decide if I even want to list that specific system. I have an analogue Sega MG, but I do at least have 2 physical genesis RPGs and I've not played either so I might actually try to beat one.

I sort of did the opposite, like most recently I beat Soul Calibur 2 playing it on my Wii console, but via the GC disk and with a GC controller. But hey to each their own, that's what's nice about this thread, we're free to make our own rules somewhat. I went for my and sought out some ROMs for my older systems that I either didn't want to dig out of storage or used it as a chance to play/beat some games that I never played/owned before. But having 5 mini consoles, I also made a point to play games on those as well, since I figured that would be more accurate vs. emulating on my PC.
Plus I ended up beating 19 X1 titles, so I didn't really want to count any more on that system and thus counted my 2x 360 games and 1 OG Xbox title for those consoles vs. where I actually played them which was on that X1. That said, if I would have played a redone/remastered version of a game, I wouldn't have counted it for it's original version's platform. Lastly I acquired some ROMs and tried out a few, didn't end up beating any, but if I had I was thinking that since I never owned a DS that I would count them as PC, where I played 'em.
Finished Chrono Trigger for SNES, Castlevania Bloodline for Genesis, Demon's Souls for PS5, 13 Sentinels for PS4, Zombi U for Wii U, Super Mario Advanced for GBA, Shin Megami Tensei IV for 3DS, Uncharted 3 for PS3. I don't have a Dreamcast anymore.
Made it to 63 Just beat Carrion on Game wasn't too bad, but like others have said, having a map or even a general direction would be nice. Apparently shortly before beating it you can access a room that gives you all the other area's completion statuses, so I noted them down and want to collect the last few containment units to get 1k GS, I only have 1 achievement left after finding my 6th unit after watching the credits roll and jumping back in. Game gets frustrating at times when you're trying to control such a large biomass with the analog stick as precision goes out the window. Otherwise the game was a decent spin and wasn't generally too difficult. Glad I knocked it off the list, though it doesn't help me towards any badges or other personal goals really.
I also completed the final 2 DLC side stories in Batman Arkham Knight. Sort of fitting that I started 2020 by beating B:AK early on and now I end 2020 by finally closing up those story DLC. I had Catwoman and Bat Girl to do last. Cat's was short and decent, Bat Girl's was a bit longer and had some optional stuff to tackle. Enjoyed 'em both. Only leaves piles of AR challenges remaining... of which I think they'll remain untouched.
My brother came over the other day so we beat Streets of Rage 2 on via Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. I also just finished up Need for Speed Underground 2 on . That game is WAY too long for an arcade racer.... I plan on beating at least 2 more games before the end of the year.
I redownloaded this after beating Hitman GO last week. I remember liking this one a lot a few years ago, but playing it now I think it's less intuitive or satisfying than Hitman GO is. Still not a bad little puzzle game.
For my next iOS game I think I'm gonna play Monument Valley, which was always one of my favorites for iOS.
Edit: I also beat Monument Valley on iOS which ended up being shorter than I remembered. It still is very clever though rarely actually challenging.
59 games down. Doom should push that to 60 pretty soon!
My family didn't have a Super Nintendo while I was growing up, but I loved me some Donkey Kong Country. I apologize to all my school friends with whom I played the game every time I visited, only to stop dead at Snow Barrel Blast. Every time. My brother and I had Game Boys, though, so when Donkey Kong Land was announced that squeezed the same pre-rendered gameplay into a tiny, pea soup screen. And you know what? It wasn't half bad. Unlike a lot of downsized ports (like the Game Gear version of Mega Man that I just finished), Donkey Kong Land's levels were designed with the smaller screen in mind. There were significantly fewer blind leaps of faith into the great unknown that end in untimely, frustrating deaths. The few necessary platforms that lay just out of your field of view were hinted at with bananas or other tokens that indicated you were on the right track and not just crossing your fingers.
That said, it's nowhere near as polished as I remember. The controls are definitely stickier than the Super Nintendo version, even after realizing that some of my floaty were moves were actually the result of a shoddy Super Game Boy gamepad and not my inept old man hands. I got hit by a number of pretty serious bugs during my new playthrough, including one that repeatedly caused me to wrongly lose lives after bumping into an enemy, even with my partner waiting in the wings. More than once, I finished a level only to have the game crash to the EverDrive menu before I got a chance to save. And about saving... This game only lets you do it if you collect the four K-O-N-G tokens as you work your way through the level, which makes them the most valuable collectibles in video game history when your toddler could wake up from his nap at any moment and cause you to abandon your progress.
Back when I first owned the game, after playing through it once and doing some more exploring, my family hosted an exchange student from France who happened to bring along two French video game magazines. One of them had an article detailing the location of every single secret in Donkey Kong Land, allowing you to unlock the coveted exclamation point that appears next to each fully-cleared level. One rainy afternoon while he was here, we sat in my room with a French-English dictionary and iterated our way through my save file until it had "100%" written next to it. As far as I know, that was the first time I fully-cleared a video game. Usually, it was enough of a miracle just to clear it in the basest terms.
The Game Boy screen didn't do the game any favors, and even modern colorized or brightened screens still produce a whole lot of "green on green" or "gray on gray" that makes the game look noisy or hard to parse, especially while things are in motion. For this playthrough, I decided to put my Super Game Boy 2 through its paces, since it has been gathering dust since I first picked it up. While Donkey Kong Land is proudly "Super Game Boy Enhanced", the playfield is still completely monochrome, which eliminates any chance of picking your chosen monkey out of the mess of jungle foliage. You do, however, get to stare at a border of beautifully-rendered banana leaves the entire time, and Donkey Kong's tie is bright red on the title screen. Oh, the wonders of technology and frivolous gaming accessories.
I'm on the penultimate chapter of Chrono Trigger, in that part of every Square RPG where you run around completing optional side-quests and watching your characters rediscover themselves as you procrastinate before the final dungeon. And then, that'll be it for 2020.
