Video Game COMPLETING Thread FOREVER!!

Postby Darkbuster13 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 8:11 am

Hey guys so wassup what is happenin'? Check it I had this crazy idea, right, so hear me out. We do this thing with the money spending thread and in hind sight that was kind of financially rude to make but you guys did it so whatever. Anyway you know those games we buy, right? Well I came up with this crazy idea.

What if (now stay with me here) what if we actually took those games...

...and what if we played them?

Rumor has it that these games, when played for a specific amount of time have this thing called an "ending" where upon reaching this "ending" it can be said the game is "beaten" or "finished" or in some rare cases "completed".

Crazy stuff, I know. But I believe in us. I believe in our abilities to take these games and find the "endings" contained within them.

So in typical NSC fashion, let's make it a leader board thread! I pretty sure we love those. And to make it even better, let's set up some MOTHER FUNKY rules up in this thread.

1. Only games you haven't beaten before will count. This will have to go on the honor system a bit, so just don't lie to inflate your VGCT2015 score. Besides, the points probably don't matter.

Um, that might be the only real rule. I thought there'd be more. I'm sorry for leading you on like this.

Here's some suggestions though!

-You can just list or name a game you've beaten, and that's fine and whatever. But it way past cool if you could like, write at least a little bit about your experience with the game. I feel this thread would have more potential to spark discussion compared to the spending thread because now you ACTUALLY HAVE STUFF TO TALK ABOUT.

Um, that might be the only tip. Man, I'm really bad at saying I have multiple things, but only actually have 1 thing.

Any who, I'm kinda sleepy and making this thread on my phone at 7 in the morning so if I think of how make this better YO EDITING ABILITY but yeah i hope it's self explanatory enough.

P.S. Regarding the 2015 bit, as long as you beat the game in 2015, it's fair game to add. (that wasn't an attempt at a pun I swear). You could have started the game in 2015, 2014, 1978 it doesn't matter as long as you FINISHED it 2015. Huh wait this totally could have been the second rule I was looking for. Well darn copy/pasting on mobile is harder than it should be so I'll fix it later.

This is a post I'll edit later!

But not on mobile. That'd be a pain.

OH SHOOT I JUST REMEMBERED. If you want track you beating games progress in 2015 and beyond, you should probs check out Backloggery. It's pretty cool. I'd link it here but I'm having trouble remembering if it was dot com or dot net. Oh well just google it. It shouldn't be too hard to find/set up.

Highscores, yeah!!
For the sake of making it easy for me, I'm just gonna say if you felt you had beaten a game enough to post about it then I'm counting it. My personal opinions don't even matter! Also the scores don't matter so don't cheese your score up with a bunch of superdeduper short games. Unless you want to because rusg; I DON'T CARE! rusg;

Oh, this one looks fun. Hopefully it doesn't count if its an enhanced remake of a game Ive beaten before since my first game to beat is Omega Ruby. Although that will soon be followed by Alpha Sapphire which might not count.

Game in Progress: Pokemon Omega Ruby
Games on Hold:
Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs
Legend Of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition
Kid Icarus Uprising
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (Not Yet Started)

I just dictate my posts to someone else I know, of course.

So that I don't spam this thread with tangents:

...I haven't beaten anything (new) yet.
Currently playing:
Pokémon Omega Ruby
Mass Effect 2

I think everyone here knows about Pokémon, so I shouldn't really discuss that until I hit new territory (I'm at Flannery).

As for Mass Effect, I just finished up Omega, and while I initially thought that the streamlined game play (read: no more inventory) would bother me, I really like Mass effect when it's not trying to be an RPG.

I'll probably edit this post later when I'm not trying to harass people to type my posts at the airport.
