Puyo Puyo Tetris - Nintendo Switch

Beat June 4, 2017

I absolutely LOVE the Puyo Puyo franchise...and I like Tetris, too. I've always been a bit of a puzzle game nerd....However, I didn't realize how lop-sided my skills were between these two games until I played Puyo Puyo Tetris and dominated any levels with Puyo Puyo and struggled to pass levels with head-to-head Tetris. My Tetris skills aren't bad by any means - I won a Tetris tournament a few years ago at a gaming convention in the area...But for whatever reason, I really struggled to pick up wins when forced to play with Tetris blocks...Then the next level would be Puyo Puyo (or a mix) and I would absolutely dominate. Anyway, this is an extremely well done game and I highly recommend it for any puzzle game junkie. The story mode will last you a while, then the multiplayer will keep you coming back for more.

I was really excited for Ultra Street Fighter II...and while I'm not necessarily disappointed with what this game delivered, it shows how far we've come in terms of what we expect out of game content. If Ultra Street Fighter II was released back in '96 or '97, this would have been absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, a fighting game without a lot of modes beyond an "Arcade mode" these days is kind of a disappointment. Also the two new characters to the Street Fighter II games, Evil Ryu and Violent Ken, aren't new characters in terms of other games...and since they're just alternate versions of characters already in the game, I felt that they were a letdown. Including a few characters from the first Street Fighter, Street Fighter III or IV, the Alpha and EX series...anything else would have been more exciting for this player. But anyway, lack of modes aside, the actual combat is just as enjoyable as it always was, so if nothing else, Ultra Street Fighter II provides a nice trip down memory lane.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch

Beat April 29, 2017

Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U was one of my favorite entries in the Mario Kart franchise. So, to see it re-released on the Switch, with all DLC included on the game card and to be able to play it on the go (or on the can) made me quite happy. It was a joy to play through this again, and it'll be fun playing it on my next plane trip...It might even make anti-social me invite the passender next to me to a two-player game. Look at that! Mario Kart has the potential to make me a social butterfly! Who knew?

Well...I put in Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and beat the game on my first play. I guess I've played the Binding of Isaac games a lot. So, I'm happy that one of them is the 700th game that I've beaten. Anyway, Afterbirth+ is that nice kind of new release that has a lot of familiar aspects to it, but there's enough new here to make it feel like its well worth playing through again, even if you've played the previous games to death. In these early days of the Switch release, this is one of the must-play titles that are available, in my opinion.

Me beating Breath of the Wild kind of came as a surprise - afterall my first two weeks of playing the game, I barely advanced the story. All I did was explore. So, when I did begin to advance the story, it all went pretty quick - especially since most of the exploring wound up making Link more powerful. Anyway, I think that Breath of the Wild is my favorite Zelda game to date, knocking Twilight Princess off of its pedistal. I purchased the Wii U version as well (I have a hunch that it may be worth something down the road - or at the very least, hard to come by - kind of like Gamecube's version of Twilight Princess) and there's a good chance that I start this game all over again on that console in a few months just so I have an excuse to play through this game again. It's well worth the purchse of a Switch by itself...especially since it allows you to save Hyrule on the go.

Girl Fight - PlayStation Network

Beat February 13, 2017

Girl Fight had some potential to be a really good fighting game...but unfortunately, it's very bland. It has a unique concept of only being able to play through arcade mode with one character...Then each time you play through, you unlock another character and another until you're done. The problem is, none of them are surprises. The loading screen shows you every character and you can play as every character right away in versus mode. Anyway, Girl Fight is basically just a sub-par fighter that uses sexuality in an attempt to hide all of its weaknesses...a poor attempt, because you're likely get bored shortly after playing.

The Pringles Game (Homebrew Game) - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive

Beat January 1, 2017

I did not expect to start off the new year by beating a Genesis homebrew game about the decapitated Pringles head eating Pringles chips...but that's how the year has started, so I guess I'll go with it. Anyway, The Pringles Game is actually pretty good...but it's also very short...like 5 minutes short. With the short game length and pretty low replay value, I can't really recommend this game for the sake of being entertained. Buuuut, if you're looking to see a unique game with very good graphics and a good concept, the Pringles Game is worth checking out...and if there was more content, I probably would be singing its praises even more.

I think this will be my last Dance Dance Revolution game....at least for a while. Best Hits is a nice place for newbies to start since its soundtrack is basically a collection of favorites from all the DDR games up to this game's release. While there's not a ton in terms of innovation, the fact that it's the equivalent of a "Greatest Hits" album will likely be enough for DDR fans to feel the need to play this game. Heck, it worked with me.

Dancing Stage: Euromix - PlayStation

Beat December 25, 2016

No, I didn't sway from my current DDR fad, Dancing Stage is the European name for Dance Dance Revolution...so, I just hopped to a different continent. Or maybe I danced? Anyway, Euromix was decent for its time...But in the grand scheme of all DDR games released on the Playstation, it gets lost in the shuffle pretty easily. Basically, some licensed songs from Universal records is one of the only things separating this from the others...but still...I'm a fan of the DDR franchise, so I played it. If you are, too...You'll probably want to play it as well.

'Twas the day of Christmas, and all--.....I did this already, didn't I? Anyway, DDR: Disney Mix has a neat mode added in that basically allows you to go up to a friend and tell them that "It's on." Followed by a dance-off. If you're the party pooper that says that it's not on and that nothing is on, then you won't care for this...the rest of us will likely enjoy it. Also worth noting is that several Disney songs are included...as the title suggests. So..if Disney songs from your childhood can entice you to try a dancing game for the first time, I suppose this would be a good one to try out.

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through my house, not a creature was stirring...until I started playing DDR games again. Konamix is the latest dancing game that I've beaten, and while I've heard that this is what the original North American release should have been, I don't necessarily feel like it's THAT big of a leap in quality. It's still fantastic and well worth checking out if you're a fan of the franchise.

Psychic Force 2 - PlayStation

Beat December 21, 2016

Psychic Force 2 is more like what I was expecting the original Psychic Force to be...and it's better in every way, in my opinion. While it still feels kind of awkward at times to be fighting in mid-air for the duration of the fight, this make it feel a bit more smooth than the previous game. While I'll still pick a good ol' two-feet-on-the-ground fighter over this game, it's still good while it lasts.

Psychic Force - PlayStation

Beat December 21, 2016

Psychic Force has a bad history with me - it's a very rare game and when I finally found a copy at the Midwest Gaming Classic, I purchased it, got home, and realized that the disc was never put into the case. I later was lucky enough to find the disc by itself at a store, so I could complete the package, but still...frustrations have happened. Unfortunately, after playing it, it wasn't worth the hassle. Sure, Psychic Force is passable - but for all that effort, I was hoping for more. This is a fighting game worth checking out if you want something a little different, but otherwise I'd avoid it...which should be easy due to its rarity.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - PlayStation

After taking a brief vacation from video games, I returned with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - a fighting game that I've always enjoyed, but one that just lacks something to make it truly great. As it is, it's still good. The graphics look beautiful for its time. The characters are varied and all odd in their own unique way, making it a treat to play through. But anyway, it has been beaten now...and it's a bizarre adventure that I may repeat again down the road.

I like 5th Mix, but it continues the downward trend of DDR releases - it's still fun, but without a whole lot new to bring to the table, it also feels like an unnecessary release. But, if you're like me, you won't care and you'll still enjoy every moment of your time with this game anyway. What can I say? I love DDR. But really, unless you can't get enough of the series, like me, this is a completely skipable edition to the series.

4th Mix is fun...But the added features won't really impress anyone but hardcore fans. I also feel like the soundtrack is the weakest up to this point in the series' history. That all said, it's still Dance Dance Revolution...it's still enjoyable...it's still worth playing if you like the series. Just don't expect too much to be different from 3rd Mix.

Here it is - my favorite game in the series....Well that I've played so far anyway. Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix, thanks to a friend from college that had an imported disc, is probably the DDR game that I've played the most. Ironically, as I've gone through many of the DDR games released on Playstation One, it honestly does seem to be the best. Nostalgia aside, I highly recommend this game.

Yes, the day has not finished, and more Dance Dance Revolution. This time, 2nd Remix...which aside from the music, is basically the same game as the Japanese DDR. The only real difference is the ability to change song difficulties...which sounds like a minor thing, but when you perfect each song, being able to up your skills is pretty nice. It's worth checking out if you enjoy the series.

Bio FREAKS - PlayStation

Beat December 11, 2016

I had no idea that Bio FREAKS was a fighting game when I popped it in to play for the first time...but it was, and it's passable. Basically, Bio FREAKS feels like a very crude version of what Midway released on the PS2 when they resurrected the Mortal Kombat franchise...so in that regard, it's interesting. Otherwise, it's not really worth tracking down unless you're a diehard fighting game fan.

In an attempt to finally update some of my "ranked by preference" lists, I've been playing a ton of Playstation games...However, I stopped for a while due to Dance Dance Revolution hooking me. DDR isn't really a hard game to beat, but I still find it to be enjoyable - whether it be playing via controller or dance pad. This was the original home release...and expect a flood of these games to fill this list soon...

My time through the world of Skyrim was wonderful again...until after 120 hours worth of sidequests into the game, I attempted to progress the story and came across a glitch that prevented me from continuing. I was level 64. Thankfully I had a save at level 23 that allowed me to complete the game (and platinum it) but it was quite disappointing that those 40 levels of gameplay were essentially put to waste. Glitches aside, Skyrim is just as fun today as it was when it was initially released. It would have been great if the glitches had been fixed for this re-release, but when a game is this fun, a glitch here and there is tolerable...even if one ends your game.

My Name is Mayo - PlayStation Vita

Beat December 9, 2016

Well, I took a week to rest my fingers before mashing my way to beating My Name is Mayo again. I don't really have much to add that I didn't already say on the PS4 version below aside from the puzzling lack of touch screen support - one would think that tapping the mayo jar with your actual finger would be a natural addition to the game, yet it's not. But anyway, for my thoughts on the game, just take a gander below.

My Name is Mayo - PlayStation 4

Beat December 2, 2016

Well, My Name is Mayo has arrived on PS4, and it is accompanied by probably the easiest platinum trophy to date - it literally takes 30 minutes to get it, and all you have to do is just mash buttons. While that sounds boring, the thing that makes My Name is Mayo worthwhile is the trophies themselves - the trophies that unlock have names that are actually parts of stories. By continuing down the path of a specific story, each time a trophy unlocks, you get a new sentence for that story. While the stories are only a few sentences long, it's still a clever way to implement trophies into a game. Anyway, if you want an easy platinum (or 2 if you have a Vita) for 99 cents, My Name is Mayo is worth a look - likewise, if you're looking for something odd, this is a nice place to look as well.

Guilty Gear - PlayStation

Beat November 28, 2016

For some reason, I struggled with Guilty Gear in the past...But for whatever reason, not tonight. Maybe it's because I'm half asleep and as a result, I'm very patient with my fighting patterns instead of just rushing in and mashing buttons...but whatever the reason, Guilty Gear has been beaten...and beaten with relative ease. That said, if you're looking for a quality fighting game on the Playstation, this game is fantastic. The only thing preventing me from giving it a better score is the lack of game modes...around the time it came out, fighting games were moving away from only having arcade modes and adding in other modes to keep replayability up. Otherwise, the game looks absolutely gorgeous, it plays smoothly, and is just a very good overall experience. If you like fighting games, you'll likely love Guilty Gear.

Since I moved back in June, I was able to move my game collection into a walk-in closet that I have transformed into my "Game Room." Since that time, one of the things that my friends and I enjoy doing is pulling out random games and playing them - oftentimes Playstation One games since that's the biggest chunk of my collection. Well, a friend and I decided to pop this game in and together we "beat" it...Basically, we qualified for all events, saw the podium, and watched the credits roll. Like most track and field games, if you plan on playing, expect your fingers to go numb from mashing buttons...and some of the events are kind of unforgiving, so you might meet some frustrations along the way, but when playing with a friend, this is a very enjoyable experience....But as I found out when capturing screenshots for this a few days later, playing solo isn't nearly as fun.

Monster Jam: Crush It! - PlayStation 4

Beat November 25, 2016

This was rough. A friend of mine asked me if I wanted an easy platinum trophy before he traded this game in...I hesitantly said alright. Two long hours later, I got a platinum trophy, but I also lost much of my sanity...I'm still trying to decide if it was worth it. Monster Jam: Crush It! is basically 2 games in 1. The first game is basically just Trials Fusion with monster trucks...except no real skill is involved. Most of the courses I held the X button down and did nothing else...which resulted in me passing each course with the best rating possible. I was even taking screenshots as the game played, which takes time, and it still didn't prevent me from getting the best rating...So, boring. The second game is more traditional monster truck races and shows in arenas...which would probably be fun if the controls weren't so wretched. Overall, Monster Jam: Crush It! is like most of the Monster Jam games...a Monster Lamb....because by counting them you can go to sleep....C'mon, ewe know that was funny.

Jazzpunk: Director's Cut - PlayStation Network

Beat October 27, 2016

I LOVED Jazzpunk on Steam...when it was released on PS4, I had to buy myself a copy there as well. This wonderful game is a must-play for anyone that loves the bizarre...because Jazzpunk is nothing but bizarre. It's a short game, and the platinum trophy can be gotten for it in a matter of an hour or two if that's all you plan on doing...but if you wander and explore around to see everything in each level, you can add a few more hours to the overall playthrough time. Anyway, if you're a trophy hunter and want an easy trophy, this is a good game to get...Likewise, if you like games that are just plain odd and entertaining, you can't get much better than this game.

Dead Rising - PlayStation 4

Beat October 2, 2016

I never beat Dead Rising on Xbox 360. After beating Dead Rising 2 (which is much easier, in my opinion) a few years ago, I went back to the original on 360 and got burnt out and ultimately stopped playing. Fast forward a few years and with Dead Rising remastered for the PS4, and include the patience that I seem to gain as I age, and Dead Rising has been beaten pretty soundly. In the process, I've gained a new appreciation for the original game in the series...I still prefer Off the Record a little more, but the original Dead Rising is now easily a very close second place. If you missed out on the fun of this back when it was released, now's a fantastic time to get caught up - the bargain bin price of $20 is an extra bonus.

Swamp Thing - Famicom and NES

Beat September 5, 2016

I did a responsible, adult thing and spent my Labor Day weekend getting good enough at Swamp Thing so that I could beat it...And beat it, I did. While it's not exactly the brawler that one might expect from a Swamp Thing game (in fact, it's basically a platformer with very poor controls for attacking) it does have its own charm to it that you might discover if you stick with it. However, with awful, awkward controls I don't think too many will stick with it...especially since level 2 is that horrid factory level - one of my least favorite levels in video game history. In fact, if you can beat the factory, it's pretty much smooth sailing through the rest of the game, in my opinion. Swamp thing could definitely be worse, but with the plentiful selection of good, quality platformers on the NES, Swamp Thing should have probably sunk back into the marsh he came from....because he came from a marsh you know, so many trees in the game! He should be named Marsh Thing....The more you know.

It's kind of ironic that the first game I've beaten on the Xbox One is an Xbox 360 game...But Fallout 3 happened to be on sale...and then all of the DLC went on sale a few weeks later...and the next thing you know, I'm falling in love with Fallout 3 all over again. Anyway, thanks to the screenshot feature of the Xbox One (which is such a pain and way more complicated to access the pictures you took than it needs to be) I managed to nab my own screen for this game, seen above. So that's neat. Otherwise, I put nearly 70 hours into this game over the past month or so, and did not come across a single bug. I don't know if the digital version on the Microsoft store is patched up or if the Xbox One hardware is just powerful enough to not be affected or what, but the disc 360 version was buggy when I originally beat the game. The PS3 version and PS3 version of the Game of the Year Edition were both buggy. The PC version was buggy - both digital and disc-based. So playing through without a single bug was a very pleasant surprise...So, I suppose, if you're looking for some nostalgia and want to play this wonderful game from about 7-8 years ago, this might be the version to go with. It's just as fun as it ever was, but with the added benefit of seemingly being free of the bugs that plagued it when it first released.

Star Ocean: First Departure - PlayStation Portable

I've been playing the original Star Ocean on and off for the past 2 months or so...and while I've always liked the original Star Ocean, I've never beaten it. That has now been remedied...and I'm very surprised at how short it was. I finished it in a little over 17 hours...but that was with me wandering around and grinding levels. I wouldn't be surprised if there are people who have beaten this in under 10 hours. That said, it feels like once the story really gets going, it comes to an abrupt end. It's still an enjoyable experience while it lasts, but with a little more story, better fleshed-out characters, and perhaps another planet or two to explore, I can't help but feel like this could have been absolutely amazing. As it is, it's just average.

Rocket League is one of the few PS4 games on here that I did not make screenshots for...Mainly because I don't own it and it was played exclusively at a friend's house. I'm not going to lie...I'm not really a fan. I get the appeal to a degree, but the game feels extremely limited to me in terms of replay value. My friends and I beat a season, then we won a game of every other variation...of which most don't have their own season modes...and I don't know. There are people that absolutely love this game, and nothing against those folks, but I just don't see it. It's kind of neat for what it is, but to me, that's about as much praise as I can give it.

NBA 2K16 - PlayStation 4

Beat June 26, 2016

The last NBA game that I really put a lot of time into was NBA 2K3...which goes to show that I was due for playing another one. When Playstation Plus put this game up for download, that was the sign that it was time to play some video game basketball once again. I was not, however, expecting that the beginning of my career in this game would be a lame, interactive Spike Lee movie. It had no impact...and it just came across as dumb. It was also very clear who the target audience for this game was...as the character you create is thrust into a family...and like the screenshot above shows, my video game momma has some explaining to do to my video game poppa. I'm sitting next to my twin sister, by the way...so yeah, kind of a disconnect since I don't fit their target demographic. Once the lame "Spike Lee Joint" ends, and the action on the court begins, NBA 2K16 is pretty awesome, though. So despite the laughable interactive film, this is still a very solid sports title and one that definitely has me interested in trying out 2K17 when it comes out.

Gone Home: Console Edition - PlayStation 4

Beat June 18, 2016

I really liked Gone Home on PC, and the Console Edition is basically the same game as you may have already played. If you haven't played this before, here's the gist of it - essentially, this is a "walking simulator" as all you do is wander around and explore a seemingly abandoned house to find clues as to why nobody is home. As you do, you'll discover a fairly interesting story that is likely completely different than what you might expect after playing the first few minutes. Gone Home is definitely not for everyone, but since I appreciate games that lack action and focus more on exploration and story, I'm a pretty big fan of this game.

I've beaten Super Metroid...I don't know how many times. Probably more than I can count since it requires me to use more than my fingers and toes to calculate. But, I've beaten it once again, and this time on the 3DS Virtual Console...and it holds two milestones in my gaming life. First, it is the first video game that I ever beat while outside...you can do that with portable games, y'know. Secondly, it is the first video game that I've beaten in the new place I call home. Relaxing from a move, sitting out on a balcony, playing through this magnificent game...can't get much better than that.

Sticking with the handhelds, I've moved on from PSP games to Game Boy Advance games...and in the process, I decided to beat a Castlevania game that I've owned for years, but never stuck with long enough to beat (something I can say about most games I played in school), Harmony of Dissonance. After beating this game, my view on it hasn't really changed - it's a good, fun Castlevania game, but it's not as good as Circle of the Moon, in my opinion. I know plenty of others that feel the opposite, though. If you liked Circle of the Moon Symphony of the Night, or any of the other Metroidvania type Castlevanias, you'll like Harmony of Dissonance. It's a very good game, I just happen to think that it's the weakest of the Castlevania Metroidvanias that I've personally played...But that's like lining up a bunch of bikini models and pointing out the least attractive one - you're still pointing out someone well above average.

While it's not nearly as gorgeous as what you may have played on the PS3, it plays just as well, and with the added benefit of being able to play whenever and wherever you feel like playing. This is a wonderful choice for fans of fighting games, looking for something to play on the go. If you're a fan of Arc System Works' style of fighting games, then this is a must-buy. If you don't mind fighting games, but aren't a big fan, you still might find plenty to like here. If you own a PSP, this is definitely a game worth checking out.

Silent Hill: Origins - PlayStation Portable

Beat May 14, 2016

When I saw that the next game I beat would be number 666, I felt the need to play through a horror game. Since I've been on a PSP kick lately, I decided to go through and finish a game that I've always enjoyed, but never completed, Silent Hill: Origins. As a big fan of the Silent Hill franchise, I enjoyed seeing the origins of the events throughout the series, and the game as a whole was pretty enjoyable. The only real gripe I have is that with the main character, Travis, being a big trucker guy, it's way too easy to pummel down many of the horrors with your fists. When a weapon breaks, you've always got your fists, and that kind of takes some of the danger and psychological fear out of the game, in my opinion. That said, I still found this game to be very enjoyable and it's good for some survival horror on the go.

Metal Slug XX - PlayStation Portable

Beat April 28, 2016

I've had Metal Slug XX since it came out, but I never took the time to actually sit down and beat it until now...and while I enjoyed my time playing this game, this may be the weakest game in the Metal Slug series. I'd have to play through the rest of the games in the franchise again to make sure, but it just didn't seem to quite have the charm of the other games...even when riding an ostrich with big guns attached to it. But, as I said, I still enjoyed my time playing this, and it's well worth the purchase for fans of the series.

UFC Undisputed 2010 - PlayStation Portable

Beaten April 27, 2016

It's been a while since I've beaten a new game, but I've been playing a few PSP games with the goal of updating the PSP ranked by preference list, and UFC Undisputed 2010 has now found itself beaten. I mostly enjoy the time I spent playing this, but the game is somewhat buggy. Twice I've knocked someone out, but they didn't fall to the mat. I threw a punch and the match suddenly came to a stop...Then the next screen, I saw that I supposedly knocked them out eventhough they didn't seem to have any problems moving around as the match ended. Glitches aside, UFC Undisputed 2010 is a decent MMA game on the go, should you want one. It likely won't "wow" anyone, but there's enough here where most MMA fans will enjoy the experience.

4PM - PC Games

Beat March 28, 2016

4PM is a very short game that's essentially an interactive short story...Unfortunately, the controls kinda stink. They're not terrible, but they just don't feel right when you play...almost awkward. But anyway, 4PM tackles both suicide and alcoholism in its story, and while its not a deep story, it is somewhat interesting to see how the two come together in the way that they do...it's not quite how you'd imagine they would. Anyway, if you've got 25 minutes to kill and you're looking for a quick game to complete, this would be a decent choice. It's not great by any means, but you could do a whole lot worse than this.

Metal Slug X - PC Games

Beat March 25, 2016

I haven't beaten Metal Slug X in years, but it was fun revisiting one of my favorite games in the franchise again...Granted the difficulty here isn't quite as severe, with the option of unlimited lives, but even with the need to strategically shoot your way through levels gone, the sheer personality of the enemies that you encounter is enough to make this game entertaining enough to play through to the end, which will take approximately 35-45 minutes to complete. If shooters amuse you and you're looking for a game to complete in less than an hour, Metal Slug X is a fantastic choice.

Beat March 22, 2016

Manos: The Hands of Fate first came to my attention when I found it on the iTunes store. I promptly bought it and downloaded it to my iPod Touch and absolutely loved it. Fast forward a couple of years and by chance, I decided to browse all of the games on sale on Steam this week, and found the PC version of the game, Manos: The Hands of Fate - Director's Cut. The game doesn't feel as impressive with a controller as it does with a touch pad, and the thrills of platforming through one of my favorite bad films aren't quite there this time around...though Torgo's theme and boss fight still makes me smile. But anyway, thanks to the controller support, this game is pretty much a piece of cake...1ups are plentiful, so even if you get stuck in an area, it's not likely that you'll run out of lives. Anyway, if you missed out on this game on iTunes, it's worth checking out on PC, especially if you're a fan of the film like I am.

Reveal The Deep - PC Games

Beat March 7, 2016

This was unexpectedly good....really good. Reveal the Deep is usually $1 USD...I got it for half price....and it's well worth the small amount of money that the developer is asking for. While it's short - maybe an hour and a half long total - it is very good while it lasts. It has very minor horror elements to it, but this is mostly about exploration and solving some puzzles via the neat concept of turning the lights on and off to show different paths. It's not complicated, and as I said earlier, it's not very long...but this is a good, cheap game that you could play and complete on a day when you're bored and looking for something a little different....And for this game's price, it could be half as good as it is and still be worth the money.

To the Moon - PC Games

Beat February 23, 2016

I've been meaning to play To the Moon for a while, but I avoided it because I heard it was kind of an emotional game and I didn't want to feel like a blubbering sissy. But, now I've played it, and while I thought it was a really good, romantic game, I'm proud to say that it didn't make me shed a tear....I'M STILL A MAN, DANG IT!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!.....Eh, I've shed tears before for other games, so I'm still a blubbering sissy, I suppose. But anyway, it's a very nice game...I'm not as smitten with it as most folks that have played it, but it's still quite good. If you want a warm, fuzzy story to warm your heart, with some occasional comedy tossed in, this is a pretty good game to play.

Beat February 21, 2016

I never played the original Downfall (though I will, it comes packaged with the remake) but I am a HUGE fan of The Cat Lady. Seeing that this game had the same artistic and gameplay style, I instantly wanted to play it. While I don't think that the story or game is as good as The Cat Lady, I still very much enjoyed it. Plus, there's some nice stuff here and there in the game that links this game to The Cat Lady, which I found pretty nifty. The game has multiple endings, and it probably won't take very long to beat once you know what you're doing - maybe an hour or two, so I'll likely go back and play it again to see if I can figure out ways to get different endings and see new scenarios. If you like point-and-click adventures and/or very dark, twisted stories, then Downfall is worth checking out.

My Name is Mayo - PC Games

Beat February 16, 2016

My Name is Mayo is a very simple game....basically, you just click on the mouse repeatedly to tap a jar of mayonnaise. While that sounds boring and dull...and it definitely can be...this game also does something unique in the form of achievements - as you unlock them, they tell a story. These stories told as the achievements pop are what kept me clicking away long after I thought I'd have any desire to click. After about 40 minutes of clicking, every achievement was unlocked, every story was told, and 10,000 clicks had been done. If you're into bizarre humor and don't mind a little tedious mouse clicking to get a few chuckles, then My Name is Mayo is an inexpensive game worth checking out.

Lifeless Planet - PC Games

Beat February 13, 2016

I was really looking forward to playing Lifeless Planet...and while I still think that it's a passable game, I did walk away from playing it disappointed. The concept is neat and all, but there was far too little exploration for my tastes...especially considering that the game takes place on a mysterious planet. It's also a tad too long - for the last hour or so I was thinking that I just wanted to finish this and be done. Lastly, the controls can be frustrating when platforming - and the animations get a little jerky at times, which doesn't help much, either. That said, this is still an interesting game and while I got bored with the gameplay after a while, there are plenty of different areas, so I never got bored with the scenery. It's not a masterpiece by any means, but it's still passable and might be worth looking into if the idea of an adventure game with some platforming elements interests you.

Among The Sleep - PC Games

Beat February 5, 2016

Among the Sleep looked amazing to me when I saw the previews...it looked like an interesting new take on survival horror. Now, while I enjoyed Among the Sleep and I think that it's passable for what it is, I also feel like it could have been so much more. The only time that I really felt any sort of unease in the game was in the opening moments when I opened the present and found nothing inside...and I thought for sure that the teddy bear was going to kill me and I had nowhere to hide and, controlling a baby, had no way to defend myself...But shortly after that most sense of danger went away, aside from a few moments here and there at the end. Due to that, the game felt like it was dragging a bit at times. But, those criticisms aside, I'm still glad that I played through Among the Sleep, and based on the other user reviews here on Listal, I think most folks like it more than I do. So, if a survival horror game seen through the eyes of a baby sounds interesting to you, give it a try.

Beat February 3, 2016

I played a bit of this game about a year ago, but didn't have good enough scores on two levels to unlock the final level in the game to consider it to be beaten. My memory isn't the best, but I'm guessing that I didn't try to get better scores on those two levels, because I got the appropriate score on those levels without much of a problem. Anyway, if you don't know anything about this game, think Katamari Damacy, but without much of the charm and personality. If you're desperate for a Katamari game on PC, this may be your only (legal) option...But I'd strongly suggest just finding a way to play a game in the Katamari series instead.

I'm not tooting my own horn with this list. It's more of just a little project to see how little of a life I have. Obviously, the more games I've realized I've beaten, the less of a life it will reveal that I have. I'm basically just making the list out of curiosity of my own geekiness. Indeed.

In 2010, I started to add comments as I beat games...Kind of like mini-reviews for the game. In 2011, I started logging the date I beat the game as well. In 2014 (geez, has it been that long already?), I began to add screenshots...99% of which are ones that I personally took. Perhaps the list will evolve even further if I can come up with any other ideas.

Generally, I consider a game 'beaten' if I see an ending. For fighting games, I consider the game beaten when I've seen the ending for all characters in the game. For older games that don't have an ending, just levels repeated on harder difficulty, I feel that if I've gone through all levels three or more times in a row, the game has pretty much been beaten. Of course, there are exceptions, but those are my general rules.

As time goes on, I'll add more to the list.

We'll see if I keep this updated, but here's the number of games beat for each system as of December 31, 2016...

Nintendo Entertainment System - 81
Playstation - 72

Great list idea! I can't even begin to remember all the old DOS games I played as a kid, but it would at least double all the console games I played.

thanks. it wasn't too hard for me to remember what i beat...it was harder to try and put it in chronological order based on first game beaten to last.

Thanks for letting me know the upside-down castle isn't in Encore of the Night. I never even thought about that. Is the castle the same for the most part?

Your overall enthusiasm for the game has made me really want to play it.

Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Oct 31 1:30
the castle is mostly the same, based on memory, but some extra rooms have been added so that a few of the upside-down castle bosses are in the normal castle. and i haven't tried it, but i believe that you can still beat the game earlier and get the 'bad' ending by killing richter rather than saving him. i'm sure i'll find out. i'll likely go through and play it again sometime down the road.

I'm glad to hear you've finished Circle of the Moon after much delay. It was my first Castlevania game, and I got stuck in it and stopped playing when I first got it too. It was just as hard as it needed to be though. Some Castlevania games really give you a run for your money...

I was missing the item that transforms the poisoned water into regular water...I had actually played enough and leveled up enough where I made it through most of that area without it, but I could never get past it and just kind of gave up after a while. Oddly enough, I had no problem finding the water purifying item this time around.
Posted: 6 years, 5 months ago at Mar 20 7:32
Going into the water area before getting the purifier is the big sequence break point for speed-runners/people who want a challenge. So I'm not surprised there are players who go on without it.

@ New Super Mario Bros. - I just didn't find the levels that interesting, and I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking this installment doesn't live up to previous 2D Marios. For some reason I've always preferred 3D Marios, which is strange given I've generally been a 2D-oriented guy in my gaming life.

@ Dawn of Sorrow - Glad you finished this one! Most people aren't fans of the forced touch screen aspects.

Are there any major differences between the console and Vita versions of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3? Slight gameplay changes, visual, audio...?
Avatar
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Feb 22 20:49
Maybe some minor graphical differences, due to the power of the PS3 and 360 compared to the Vita, but I've never been too keen on noticing stuff like that. But from what I noticed and read, even the updates that the console owners had to update were included in the Vita version right out of the box. It's pretty impressive.
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at May 29 4:18

It's good to see your positive thoughts on the Game Boy King of Fighters '95. I'm getting a "lot" of eight SNK/Takara fighters for the Game Boy, as well as a Game Boy Color fighting game by Takara called "Kettou Beast Wars" which looks to be in the same style as their Game Boy games. Since King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, and Samurai Shodown never made it on the Game Boy Color (save for the mysterious and dreamy Super Fighters 99), Kettou Beast Wars would probably the closest thing stylistically to a game along these lines. Except with Transformers.

Do the different playable characters in RockMan: Battle & Fighters play really differently? Are there four, or three? Heck, I own the game, but I don't feel like getting it out right now.
Avatar
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at Sep 23 0:08
Yeah, they play differently. Mega Man, Proto Man, and Bass, if I remember correctly. Not too terribly different from each other, but enough where you can employ different strategies around the strengths/weaknesses of each character. I actually played the two arcade games that these games are ports of years ago, and it's amazing how well those games got ported into 8-bits without losing much of anything in the process.

Look, man, you do not "win" WWE Supercard. WWE Supercard wins you. It pummels you to a bloody, addicted pulp that CAN'T STOP TAPPING TO MAKE THE ANIMATIONS GO FASTER so you can feed yet another rare Buff Bagwell to your legendary Alberto del Rio who is no longer with the company.

It is the worst game I have ever played.

It is the greatest game ever made.

Just finished The Wolf Among Us as well. Can agree with you on that it's not as emotional as The Walking Dead, but I thought that the story, twists and atmosphere was at a top level. But man, Telltale, they're on a roll. Particularly if you like that kind of gameplay.
