Here’s the list of games that I finished within the boundaries of 2008. Out of those that list of 30, here’s some comments on a few of those games.
I ended up beating the arcade version on easy, normal, hard, and insane difficulty levels via SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 on the PSP. That sounds impressive until to know how to best each CPU opponent. I didn’t even get a challenge on the insane setting. It still felt like easy or normal. Raiden is really easy once you realize that throwing a punch at a distance will make him do his flame breath that doesn’t hit, then hitting him with a move like Terry’s Burning Knuckle.
Neo Turf Masters
Thanks to SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1, I was able to play this interesting golf game. It’s actually a pretty competent game of golf. More so than you’d first expect.
Kirby’s Dream Land
I remember really well playing this game at the time of its release in 1992. However, it wasn’t until I bought my own copy last year that I quickly beat it. There’s also a code to make the game more difficult, which is displayed at the end of the game. It ends up being the insane difficulty that Fatal Fury was looking for. :lol:
There are some games that I really enjoy and I play the crap out of them before moving on. Examples of this are Tomb Raider: Legend, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and this game. I played the PS2 version a lot until it was completed and then played it some more to five star some scenes that I didn’t the first time. While I haven’t played it yet, I have bought the PS3 version as well.
I didn’t expect to like Power Blade all that much since I didn’t know anything about it when I picked it up last August. Its actually fairly easy when compared to other NES games of the time. Once I understood what to do it was pretty fun. I now have Power Blade 2 on my wish list.
I’ve only finished this game on easy since this game is the definition of hardcore gaming. I spent most of my time on the challenges which were a little frustrating, but ultimately fun.
Mega Man 4 & Mega Man II
Back when Mega Man 9 was released, I decided to get some play time in on older Mega Man games. I played some of Mega Man 8 and Mega Man X4, but I had more fun playing Mega Man 4 on the NES and Mega Man II on the Game Boy. I finished the former with the Game Genie since I’m not all that skilled in the series, but I did beat the latter game without cheats.
The games I recommend from my list of 30 completed games are:
The King of Fighters ’97
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
Twisted Metal: Head On – Extra Twisted Edition
Justice League Heroes: The Flash
