Actually we debated this point last year over fighting games. I consider a run through story mode (or arcade if no story mode is present) to be beating the game. Originally that was all there was to a fighting game, so at the end of the day, that's how I see it. Now completing a game takes a lot more, including beating it on higher difficulty settings, seeing the endings, unlocking characters, finishing alternate game modes, etc.

As for Crazy Taxi, I have no idea.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare *NEW*

Total: 1

I played the campaign before, but i didn't really have a chance to beat it since i didn't own a copy of it myself. i always preferred mw1 online multiplayer over the other newer cod titles. Campaign however seemed really short, like each mission was shorter that mw2 IMO. Campaign was fun, and i really enjoy the Soap/Price storyline. I never pay attention to the us storyline. The british guys are way cooler. Mw might be overrated, but its still a fun console fps game.

Yeah, I counted fighting games if I got all the way through on one credit or (if the game was much tougher) a set amount of continues (I usually allot myself like $1 or something worth of credits for an especially tough fighting game). Most of the 6 fighting games I beat last year were 1cc runs.

I wish I could say the same for shmups...

I don't really think you CAN beat a fighting game. Since beating a game is usually applied to games with a single player focus and fighters are always more about the multi-player, human competition. Saying you beat a fighting game is sort of like saying you beat a Madden game. You don't REALLY beat games like this in my opinion

You beat Madden when you win the Super Bowl in single player, something I try to do every year. After that you can play more seasons, but I consider those the equivalent of "loops".

EDIT: Generally we counted games as beaten last year if we got to a credits screen or to the second loop. How you get there and whether you count it is up to you :)

Yeah, I guess that's cool. I remember when I used to think I was weird for playing fighters solo and just seeing everyone's endings while I figured other people were only playing these games when they had human friends to play against. I guess it's not so odd to play a fighter solo every now and then
