There are way too many ad hominem attacks on this thread, imo. Name-calling is rarely a great way to get people to listen to you or seriously consider your ideas, at least in my experience.

Also, I didn't think of this before, and I don't know if it counts, but I won several games of Hunt the Wumpus on the TI-99/4A. I did that before I beat Chip 'N Dale on the NES. I do still consider that one to be the first one I really "beat," though.

It's hard to say, and I doubt I'll ever really know for sure, but I think the first game I ever beat was Kid Dracula on my GameBoy, largely because I think it was the one GameBoy game I actually owned at the time. There's a chance it was a borrowed copy of Kirby's Dreamland I beat first, but I'm pretty sure it was Kid Dracula.

I was going to say anything short of a lobotomy is rarely a great way to get people on the internet to listen to you or seriously consider your ideas.
