Games I've Started and Actually Finished

List items

  • The very first game I ever finished. I played a ton of Nintendo games growing up, but I only ever beat one.

  • And I found all of the secret endings of levels, and completed Star Road! This was the first game I ever found every secret thing in.

  • One of those games that you just can't put down. I think I played this game for years, and I still will pop it into my Gameboy from time to time even now.

  • This was a game that I had to go back to years later to beat. I was stuck on a the 7th dungeon for years. I would restart games and play thinking I had missed something, only to get caught at the same place. Then I figured it out, and felt really stupid in the process. *Hint to younger self: Use the flame wand you dumbass!*

  • I love Doom.

  • ...and I love Doom II.

  • What can I say, killing Nazis was enough to get me from beginning to end of all the chapters.

  • I used cheat codes. I felt bad about it but I did clip through a few walls towards the end. Some day I'll go back and beat this one without cheating.... Maybe.

  • My husband bought me this game when we were first going out. One of the many reasons I married him. Oh, and one of the reasons I beat the game as well. I couldn't not beat a game that someone gave to me.

  • Yes I beat the single player campaign. Not really a feather in my cap since it's just a series of maps and bots, but I did get to the end and frag the last bot.

  • I played and beat this game so many times. I still think about reinstalling it on my computer, but that may be a bad idea. Don't want to deflate my nostalgia boner.

  • One of the first games that caused serious obsession. I think it took away a lot of valuable studying time during my first year of college. It was worth it. Another game I have beat multiple times with multiple characters.

  • New levels and 2 new character classes! New gameplay mechanics! I love you Blizzard!!!! Please take all of my money!

  • I am dying for a new PS3 game in the series.

  • Not as good as the first game, but still a lot of fun.

  • I never got into these games when I was younger, but I returned to them when they were released on the Gameboy advance. I beat both games, but the first was far superior to the second installment. Oh, and I haven't found a Final Fantasy game after this that I could actually play through.

  • This game blew my mind when I first had a PS2. I played as different characters for different kingdoms. It was a lot of fun.

  • I would say that this is the best Dynasty Warriors game. I realize that's not saying a whole lot. I sunk a lot of time into this one and really enjoyed unlocking different characters and weapons.

  • The last Dynasty Warriors game I got into. It was not as good as 3, but I still spent a lot of time with it.

  • This is a trend I am not entirely proud of. There was a time in my life when I played a lot of games with *Warriors* in the title. This is still on my game shelf and I still sometimes think about popping it back in the XBox then I realize I have too many other good games on my list of shame to tackle.

  • I really liked this game because it was too ridiculous to actually exist. Too many characters and crazy plot machinations. It was the last great *Warriors* game that I spent time with.

  • I really have a soft spot in my heart for this game. It was so raw and crazy. I actually felt stressed out when I was trying to find better weapons in the levels before the hobos came to kill me. A bit ridiculous but a lot of fun.

  • One of the best games I have ever played. I loved the twist, too bad the ending was only just ok. However, this is a game you play for the atmosphere and the journey through Rapture, not the final cut scene.

  • Not a bad sequel to a great game. The story was not that great, especially when it will always be compared to the original, but the gameplay was refined and I actually liked the parts where you protect the Little Sisters. It also had a better ending, if you're into that. :)

  • Fantastic game. I played through this and was wrapped up in the characters and story from beginning to end. It was a bit janky, but there is just so much fantastic stuff in this game that I can forgive some flaws.

  • One of the best, if not the best, games I have ever played. Amazing story, characters I actually care about, great gameplay, beautiful and fun locations to explore. This game has it all. I just wish there was more of it... Bring on Mass Effect 3!

  • I think this game is what bridged the gap between me playing shooters on my computer to mostly playing them on the console. Also, co-op.

  • Besides the sudden ending, this game was great. Another game I that I played through cooperatively.

  • Not my favorite Halo story but the campaign was super fun.

  • This is my favorite Halo game. I played through it twice, once with one other person and twice with two other people on legendary. It was a blast. I also appreciated the hub world set-up to the game. It made everything a little bit more cohesive, even if you just used it to get from mission to mission

  • The final Halo game by Bungie, and it was great. Not as good of a story as ODST (yes I am that person) but still fun and interesting. Super fun to play with a friend. This is also the first Halo game where I got into playing the multiplayer.

  • I sunk more time into this than any other game this generation. I think Over 100 hours. I also played all the DLC. I couldn't get enough of this world.

  • I really enjoyed the story in this game. You didn't quite know what the good and bad decisions were, you just made the choices you thought were good and hoped for the best. The final boss battle was kind of a let down (I beat it with little trouble) but the game as a whole was amazing.

  • More Dragon Age. There was no reason not to get this and beat it.

  • So much stupid fun. SO MUCH STUPID FUN. When I beat that final gang boss I was so happy. There's nothing quite like shooting a dude with a rocket launcher a couple of time and then running up and kicking him to death.

  • A big let down. While the co-op is super fun, the story is stupid (and not in a stupid fun way) and the missions are just rinse and repeat. Very repetitive. But traversing the city and just being a general badass is still a lot of fun.

  • I fear Fable III. I heard bad things from my husband who loved this game but says that the third installment is nowhere near as good. It's too bad, Fable II was a lot of fun and had an interesting story with engaging characters.

  • Not my favorite shooter, but a lot of fun. Also a game that I played co-op through the entire time.

  • Short but sweet. Mind bending puzzles and a great antagonist made this game easy to start and easy to finish.

  • As addictive as Diablo, I played through with every class type.

  • Though the game was the ending to a much beloved series, it wasn't completely satisfying. The ending was a sour note on a masterpiece. It's really too bad considering everything up until the last 10-15 minutes or so was so damn good.

  • I had a lot of fun playing this game. Even though the story was not as grand as the original, and the reuse of environments was also annoying by the end, I still enjoyed my time with this game.

  • A great sequel! Not only was the main story fun and consistently well written and paced, but the co-op campaign was fantastic. A true joy to finish.

  • I loved Oblivion but I never finished Oblivion. I love Skyrim. I finished Skyrim. I spent 180+ hours in Skyrim and it still calls me back.

  • Diablo III is one of those games that you will either adore or not get. I am in the first category. While I don't think it has been as successful at hooking me as Diablo II, I still enjoyed the heck out of it and will replay it many times.

  • Scariest game ever. Butt-clenchingly freaky, just plain wrong feeling, this game will mess you up. I wish I were exaggerating. This game has effected me in a way that I can't put in to words. Let's just say that this will change you if you decide to try it.

  • I liked this better than the first game in the series. What makes Gears so fun is the satisfying co-op. The addition of horde mode made this game even better.

  • This was what a third game in a series should be. The single player was so fun to play with a friend and the multiplayer, especially the revamped horde mode, was fantastic. This is the game that made me love the Gears of War series.
