Mine was either Commander Keen in Keen Dreams, or Xargon. I can't remember which. (I'm showing my age here.) What about you guys?

I don't play a lot of games and most of the games I play don't really have an "end". So I'm going to count BANISHED because I managed to get all of the achievements for it. 8D And I'm close to getting them all on Planet Zoo.

Probably Link's Awakening DX, since that came with the Game Boy Color I got. I remember playing Super Mario Land, Metroid 2, and some other games my older brother had for his grey brick Game Boy, but I distinctly remember not being good enough at any of those to beat the game.

God, I really can't remember with any clarity the first one I ever beat, but my first console was an NES so it would be one of the titles there.

I never beat Ninja Gaiden because of that fucking eagle on that one stage. If you search YouTube you will get an exact video of that one eagle. It is such an insane jump to dodge that fucker and continue dodging it.

So yeah, not Ninja Gaiden.

Not Mario either because I just got to a certain place that I couldn't get past. There was just this forever hole in the floor and I had no clue how to bypass it.

It could have been Robocop because I loved that movie as a kid (JFC who let a kid watch ROBOCOP?!). It was hard as shit though, especially the last level and the ED-209 boss fight.

It also could have been Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. I absolutely adored that game as a kid and I played it non-stop (between Ninja Gaiden and Robocop). I couldn't get enough of this game!! It had the "perfect" difficulty of gameplay, it was just (and to this day remains) really hard to figure out what to do next without enough clues. And half the clues in the game were FAKEOUTS!! SUCH BULLSHIT!!

But I did beat the fucker. When you summon Dracula at the end you can pop a laurel and drop nothing but sacred flame sub-weapon on his resurrection pyre and kill him in like, 5 seconds. rofl

I also had Star Wars and Tiny Toons Adventures. I did beat Star Wars eventually (yoooo those flight sim levels ON A FUCKING NES were doooope). Tiny Toons was also surprisingly difficult later on (Monty's stage was insane, wtf).

OH YEAH DOUBLE DRAGON II. Literally the greatest beat-'em up of all time. Great music, amazing co-op, super hard/fun fights...


In light of the new Castlevania anime, I wish I had Castlevania III. I did have the other Ninja Gaiden games too but really no memory of them like the first game. Double Dragon III was ass... Battletoads to child-me might have been like giving a TikTok'd person a differential equation and telling them to cure AIDS with it.


I can't remember anything else...

Super Mario 64. It was the first game that I not only beat, but 100% beat, and then proceeded to speed run (not that I was really all that good at speedrunning it). I still play the crap out of that game to this day, I am determined to get it under 2 hours! My current record is 2 hours, 7 minutes!

I beat a campaign in Tropico: Mucho Macho Edition way, way back in elementary, but not sure if that counts as beating a game. ^^'
So I'll go with Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII on the PSP, then.

I didn't really have game consoles as a kid and we didn't get a PC until I was in high school. The second game I ever beat was Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

For me, it was the original Avatar the Last Airbender game for DS. I freaking loved that game and played it more than once.

If someone can come up with a good plot, I'm basically up for anything! Some of my favorites though are Sci-Fi, fantasy, myths and legends, and basically anything anime. I really like to take already existing universes and then create original characters to roleplay with. Again, I am open to original ideas as well!

Ex. I really like the world of Avatar the Last Airbender, but I don't really want to roleplay Aang, Katara and the rest of the gang. I would rather make original characters to roleplay in the world that already exists.

Some of the universes I'm familiar with include:

Games:
Nier: Automata
Final Fantasy XV
Persona 5
Witcher Wild Hunt
Mass Effect
Dragon Age
Last of Us
Danganronpa
Castlevania
Legend of Zelda
Tomb Raider
Resident Evil
Dead Space
Fire Emblem

Anime:
Attack on Titan
Tokyo Ghoul
Owari No Seraph
B The Beginning
Parasyte
Guilty Crown
Seven Deadly Sins
Promised Neverland
Sirius the Jaeger
Psycho Pass
Naruto
Mushishi

Miscellaneous Shows:
Avatar the Last Airbender
Danny Phantom
Teen Titans
Studio Ghibli Anything
Ocarina of Time for sursies on Nintendo 64! That one really kickstarted my love for games :'D Banjo Kazooie is probably next!

For me, I think it was The Sims: Busting Out for GBA. As I result, I spent a long time terrified of this sonofabitch.

Yes.
Might be Unreal Championship 2, or Star Wars Battlefront II (2005).
Then Ratchet and Clank games.

Modern/realistic. Low fantasy. Low Scifi. Supernatural. Future Dystopia (not post-apoc).
Final Fantasy IX was the first game I beat, I'm pretty sure.
But I had to buy the strategy guide for it hahaha
