Every Game I've Ever Finished

One of the most well-known games of all time, I've played enough of this game on so many platforms that I'll count this game as completed. Although I've never gotten a kill screen, I'm still going to count this one due to the sheer amount of time that I've spent playing Pac-Man.
Although I haven't gotten an S rank on Ms. Pac-Man for the XBLA, I completed all of the levels until it began looping levels (up to around 20 or so I believe). The last achievement in this game is impossible.
Currently my favorite Twisted Pixel game (although Comic Jumper miiiight change that), I've played through 'Splosion Man in both single and multiplayer (initially the lag was killer, so it took me several months before I finished the multiplayer online with my friend).
One of few Sonic games that I've actually finished, this is the only Neo Geo Pocket game that I've ever finished (and it is probably going to be one of my favorites when I return to the system). This game is a lot like Sonic Advance, although it borrows a lot from Sonic 2, which is not a bad thing.
Probably my favorite Sonic game, Sonic CD is a great game (although some of the music isn't incredibly... er.. good?). I played through this game awhile back, and it remained the only Sega CD and Sonic game that I'd completed for a while (although Snatcher and Pocket Adventure changed that,respectively).
I got The Maw for free, and after finishing it I realized it's probably not worth the $10.00 it goes for the the Marketplace (probably worth more like $5.00). That's not to say that it's not a good game, it's just a little lacking on content.
One of my favorite beat-em-ups of all time, Streets of Rage 2 is especially fun in multiplayer. I've played through the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game, which I managed to get for free (a great price for this game, although I would've been willing to pay more).
Another game that I managed to get for free, I played through the TMNT 1989 Classic Arcade version on Xbox Live Arcade. The game is relatively fun in multiplayer, but it's only a fairly competent beat-em-up, and doesn't really compare to other games, such as the sequel (Turtles in Time).
The fourth, and best, game in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe (although I don't really know if I can say that, having not played TMNT II or III). Nonetheless, the game is incredible, with great music, fun gameplay, and fantastic multiplayer.
The Game Gear Mega Man is pretty tough to play on such a tiny screen, but the game is still pretty fun. Borrowing a lot from Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5, the game makes no sense in context with these games (what are Wave Man and Toad Man doing in Dr. Cossack's stage? Why does Wave Man have no weakness? Why is Dr. Wily using Dr. Cossack's fortress and Quick Man's stage?).
An absolute turd in comparison to the SNES/arcade original, Re-Shelled was a complete disappointment from start to finish. It was only a little bit entertaining in multiplayer, but the TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE music and the addition of a third dimension, this game was a miserable game that attempted to rely completely on the nostalgia of the original.
One of the single most brutally difficult games I have ever played, Zelda II was almost at chore at times. This game is unforgiving, hard, and at times, completely unfair. With that out of the way, this game is a lot of fun, and despite being a weaker Zelda game, it's still a great game with awesome music to boot.
A charming little puzzle game, P.B. Winterbottom was delightful from start to finish. The puzzles are challenging, but not impossible. The unique concept is very interesting, and it's awesome the variety of ways that each individual level can be completed.
Probably one of my favorite Xbox Live Arcade games, I picked up Shadow Complex for only $10. The game is a lot of fun, especially because of my love for the Metroidvania formula. I managed to 100% the game on my first run, but I still plan to go back and complete it a few more times.
A unique puzzle game, I got this game because I enjoyed the demo and because of the fact that I was donating to charity. I was surprised at how challenging it ended up being in the later levels, but that doesn't stop it from being a lot of fun.
This and Crossfire both come from an ex-Volition employee, I believe. They're both excellent games too. JoyJoy is a twin stick shooter (surprise!) that actually stands out among all of the twin stick shooters on the indie game marketplace. This game has a unique art style, great multiplayer, fast-paced gameplay, a large arsenal of weapons, and even modes where you can alter your speed, rate of fire, vulnerability, etc.
Free is the right price for this... "game."
A pretty fun game, Resident Evil 5 doesn't deserve all of the crap it gets (I think mainly due to the fact that it's not "as good" as Resident Evil 4, which isn't to say that it's a bad game at all). This game is especially fun in multiplayer (not the terrible Versus DLC).
After purchasing Jump almost a year ago, I finally got around to finishing it (I kept losing all of my lives around stage 28 out of 30). This game is a lot of fun, and well worth teh 240 MS point price tag.
Crossfire is a Galaga-esque space shooter from the same developer as JoyJoy. This game is unique because of the ability to switch from the bottom and the top of the screen. This game is also incredibly difficult, especially in later levels. Maybe it's just me, but it's very hard to keep track of literally hundreds of individual bullets. Nevertheless, it's a very fun game.
Currently my absolute favorite Sega Genesis game, Gunstar Heroes is a ton of fun. I played through the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game, but this game really shines in the cooperative play. A friend and I played through this in an afternoon, and it was AWESOME.
Gunstar Super Heroes isn't as good as its predecessor, but it is still a fantastic game in its own right. This is, without a doubt, one of the best action games on the Game Boy Advance. That's saying a lot, especially considering the pedigree of the system.
An awful, boring shooter that does NOT live up the the Jason Bourne name at all. I, admittedly, only trudged through this for the easy 1000 achievement points (and they weren't worth all of the pain and anguish this game caused).
Another game you can't technically "beat," I've played so much of Galaga over the years that I'm inclined to include this one. Also, I got 200G in the Arcade version, so it totally counts.
Pure is an amazing ATV racing game on the 360 and PS3, and comes highly recommended. The game is just a lot of light-hearted fun, from the soundtrack, to the scenery, to the amazing stunts. I definitely recommend this one, even if you're not an ATV fan. You may be surprised.
A pretty standard vertically scrolling shooter with one difference: TIME TRAVELLLLLLLL. Otherwise, it's not that great.
I don't even own Left 4 Dead, but I've played through all of the campaign missions on a friend's 360. This game is a ton of fun, but I really suck at it.
Probably one of my favorite 360 games, Nuts & Bolts may not be the same as its predecessors, but it's an incredible game in its own right. I really, really love the customization of vehicles in this game, which really hearkens back to the days of Legos. Maybe not the best game for a fan of Banjo-Kazooie, but definitely a great game for fans of creation and joy and happiness.
I actually found Blast Corps to be one of my favorite Rare games. The concept is just awesome: take some vehicles and BLOW EVERYTHING UP. Play this game, and be amazed.
Another classic arcade game that can't technically be finished, but I have 200G in the Arcade version so it counts! Ha!
I honestly did not enjoy Secret of Monkey Island as much as I thought I would. I'm a fan of point and click adventure games, but I guess the whole stigma surrounding this game overhyped it for me. I still enjoyed it, but I wouldn't say it's one of my favorites.
Legitimately, this is one of my favorite point and click adventure games. Beneath a Steel Sky has such an incredibly well-crafted universe, from the unique voice acted characters, to the intriguing science fiction plot. Highly recommended.
An awful game, terrible really. I finished this in coop with a friend, and did not enjoy one bit of it. It's free, though, so if you want some gamer points, you should download.
Shake it baby. Duke Nukem 3D is a classic, plain and simple.
This game surprised me. I wasn't expecting such a well designed adventure, especially since all of the reviews were calling it a Zelda-like. Sure, this game is like the Legend of Zelda, but it has enough about it that's unique. I look forward to its inevitable sequel!
I hold this game in higher regards than the oft-praised GoldenEye 007. Perfect Dark is just Rare's seminal first-person shooter. I love everything about this game, from the well-designed mazes that make up the game's levels, to the unique weaponry. I have yet to check out the game's XBLA release, but I will soon.
I played through this game on the Xbox 360 with a team of Storm, Iron Man, and Ryu. It's not nearly as difficult as the first game, at least when talking about the final boss. Nevertheless, it's still a great game and the insanity surrounding it really compliments the overall game.
One of my favorite multiplayer games on the Xbox 360, Borderlands has been played for dozens upon dozens of hours. I've played through every piece of downloadable content as well, and heartily recommend those (except for Mad Moxxi, naturally).
Ah, yes. The game upon which my username is based. How can I say anything bad about this game? Star Fox is a classic, simple as that.
Star Fox 64 completely upped the ante from the original game, adding multiplayer, new vehicles, characters, etc. This is the best Star Fox game, in my opinion, although Star Fox Adventures was also pretty good...
Played through this game on an Atari Flashback 2. Still a great game, and it's clear how this game has influenced modern adventure games. The game isn't that long, but it is still a staple of not only the era, but gaming as a whole.
...speaking of Star Fox Adventures. Yeah, this game was pretty good, it's just too bad that the game is less of a "Star Fox" game and more of a "third-person adventure" game. It's still a fantastic game in its own right, but maybe not deserving of the Star Fox moniker.
The second worst Star Fox game, I actually enjoyed this game for its multiplayer. My friends and I spent a lot of time blasting each other, and the integration of vehicles was pretty sweet. The game was super-short, though, and kind of sucked.
Another strange shooter from Cave, ESP Ra.De. is a whole ton of fun, despite its difficulty. In fact, I'd probably say it's one of my favorite Cave shooters, although there will always be a special place in my heart for Guwange.
My least favorite Star Fox game, this is less based on the classic flight simulation gameplay, and is more of a strategy game. The multiple endings are all ridiculous and depressing, and hopefully non-canonical, the gameplay is slow-moving, the action scenes are uninteresting... I didn't like this game.
Ah yes, the Oracle games. These two are probably some of the best top-down Zelda games out there. Personally, I liked Oracle of Ages better.
This is because time travel is way cooler than changing the weather. You can't deny that.
A true classic, Metroid, despite its difficulty and short length, is a lot of fun. The game is probably one of the best NES games, and is one of the best Metroid games as well. I think I'll have to find the Classic NES Series version of the game and finish it on there too.
I didn't really like Link's Awakening that much. It didn't really seem like a Zelda game in some locations, the dungeons were weird, and I didn't like the whole "IT WAS A DREAM" thing.
My second favorite Double Dragon game, Double Dragon II refines the gameplay of the first Double Dragon, also including its own innovations such as directional based attacks, better graphics, more unique stages (particularly the helicopter stage), but retains Double Dragon's classic difficulty.
