Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Keep it spoiler-free. If you want to discuss details of a game then mark it CLEARLY, please.

I finished a 100% scan run in Metroid Prime last night. Last up: finishing my hard game which was left idle at 77% (right before the Omega Pirate). shivers

I'm making a Metroid Prime hard run right now too! I still haven't made a 100% run, I'll probably combine them. I can't do 100% scans though as I've recently found that Flaagra is two scans. Stupid.

I just got the Ice Beam and am around 30%.

Although I did just beat Zero Mission a second time on hard. Love them Metroids!

I finished Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy for the GameCube this week. Review forthcoming.

Right now I'm working through Steel Battalion...christ, I really suck at the game.

For the 100% scan run I got a scan FAQ and quadruple-checked the one-time scan items. There's quite a few, so I suggest you do the same. The first time I played through the game I took care of the 100% item run. Yeah, gotta love the Metroids. The replay that they offer is amazing. I'm working on a 100% item run on normal mode for Zero Mission. Thems some hard items to get.

I finally beat Red Faction after placing it on the back burner for the past year. Better polished games make the cutscenes look horrendous, but a very fun FPS nevertheless. And a very addictive multiplayer option as well.

Last two games that I beat were Tony Hawk's Underground and Halo (again!).

I've already got reviews up for them, too...

I almost beat Brute Force and gave up on it. It was seriously going nowhere. I'll have a review of that one up pretty soon on my website.

I'm currently working on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but I might just say kcuf it and move on without even a review of that one; it's just kinda lame, and actually pretty tough. Tetris Worlds, though, now I don't quite see where the problems with that game are...

If people remember to BUMP this every once in awhile, I'll remember to post when I beat a game!

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

all you do is get in the zone. to do this listen to rock music turn theTV volume down all the way then eat some thing that requiers a stick like a sucker or a popsicle then eat it and play your game keep the stick though you are going to bite on it when you get scared some thing bad is going to happen and then you just just play. hey it worked for me on need for speed underground...

I'm working on the 100cc races in MKD. I need one more (Star Cup). Then I will go to the 150cc, then whatever tracks that are unlocked, etc. Once I race and beat every track, I consider that game "beaten". Gold cups across the board.

Yeah, most racing games have a very definite career mode or main racing mode and when you win all of the races and see the credits roll, I consider it beaten. Of course, the beauty of a game like PGR2 or Gran Turismo is that you can always continue playing to improve your time or to try and earn a higher Kudos score or to buy another upgrade for a particular car or whatever. But then again, people "beat" games like Ikaruga and Mars Matrix and surely they can always continue playing to beat their high score. Racing games are the same way, eventually you do everything there is to do and all that's left is to improve on your best times.
