1- Heavenly Sword (Ps3)
2- Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PS3)
3- Sonic Generations (Ps3)
4- Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance (3DS)
5- Legend of Zelda: Link between worlds (3DS)
6- Castlevania: Mirror of Fate (3DS)
7- Pokemón Crystal (GBC)
8- Pokemón Fire Red (GBA)
9- Pokémon Y (3DS)*
10- Duke Nukem Forever (PS3)

Im like 4 yaers late in it but i beated duke nukem forever. It's... not horrible but definetly can be better. The last sections are the lamest of the game and the monster truck section is meh. If you want a Duke game with his humor/actitude/one liners this game has it. I just loose it in a part where someone died and he goes "damn it Leroy" i don't know why it crack me up.

I feel like some people hate it because they expected something in the lines of duke 3D, the level design or just old school shooter, and others hate it because they wanted a ground breaking FPS experience. The last one its ridiquilous this game had a awful development history im actually surprised its playable.

It's definetly flawed but if you want a decent half life style shooter, with some humor, give it a try. Btw water section... awful... boss under water... even worse.

Cool thread dude! :D

I've made it my personal mission to finish any game I've started.

Sonic Lost World (Okay game, much better out there)
Tales of Vesperia (10/10, this game is amazing. also, it's the first RPG I've ever beat.)
Luigi's Mansion (Good game, just too short and a lot of missed potential)
Trauma Team (Amazing game, highly underrated)

I also played 40+ hours of Morrowind, which is amazing. i'm mentioning it because it is nearly impossible to finish that game. xD

I think there may be more, but my memory fails me. Will post if they're are.

Last year, though, i beat a lot. Sonic 1, 2, 3 Adventure 1 & 2, & Generations. Uncharted 1, 2 & 3. All 3D Legend of Zelda's Marathon'd :D

Don't give up! It can be beaten, although I would recommend skipping the expansion campaigns as they are.....mediocre. Very mediocre, but play the main game, explore and create your own story, but most importantly, beat the game!

Morrowind can be beaten hilariously fast if you know what you're doing.

Bull, Solstheim is the best part of Morrowind. All the perks, plus Nordic drinking halls.

Ah, the Ground Zero mission pack for Quake II. It's like Quake II, but designed by some asshole with a turret fetish. It's also harder, throwing a relatively unarmed player against some unforgiving challenges from the very beginning and sitting back with arms crossed to find out if you sink or swim. Ground Zero makes Quake II feel like kid gloves; levels feature challenging enemy arrangement, there are so many weapons that it is easy to lose track(and hard to access some of them), and new enemies will be happy to hand you your ass.

Let's first discuss the weapons: all of the Quake II staples return, and in general they have not changed much, though a few get even more quickly outclassed than in the base game. The Machine Gun is basically worthless once you find the Chain Gun, the Shotgun loses some of its relevance as a sniping tool once you get the Rail Gun, and the Grenade Launcher is awesome! But the new weapon offer a little variety, and in particular I quite liked the Proximity Mine Launcher. It functions like a weaker grenade launcher that doesn't bounce but can stick to walls, ceilings, and elevators for me to set some nasty traps. I loved this weapon and often switched to it. The ETF Rifle and the new Tesla Mines on the other hand...not so much. The Tesla required a bit more work than I was willing to put in, and the Prox Launcher fit a lot of the same bill and did so faster at range. As for the ETF Rifle, it was too weak for me to give it much of a chance, and I stopped using it entirely half way through. Mostly I went back to my basics, though with so many tough enemies in this mix, I eventually set aside the shotguns for all but the weakest of Strogg.

Speaking of which, there are a lot of Strogg, many of which are quite beefy and can take a few hits. The new guys are all nasty buggers in their own right. The Stalker, Medic Commander, Turret, and Daedulus all have their particular nasty means of interacting with you. Stalkers can cling to the ceiling and hop over oncoming fire, making fighting them a pain(but the Prox Launcher works wonders), the Daedulus hide behind a shield you must tear down with a lot of weapon's fire before you can rip into the sweet meats beneath, the Medic Commander can revive dead Strogg and spawn weaker opponents to attack you in a horde, and whoever came up with the Turret and decided on its placements through the game is a jerk. I didn't see "Turret Guy" in the credits for the game, which is probably a good thing, because that guy would probably go the way of Jimmy Hoffa if folks figured out who he is. How bad is the Turret? Well, it properly leads targets, takes two direct rail gun shots to kill, comes in both a laser and rocket variety, and is behind you. Seriously, there is a Turret behind you. Always. Looking back at the doorframe becomes second nature in this game by the time you finish. I hate the Turret!

As I said, Ground Zero is Quake II on Hard Mode. It's surprisingly long in the first three sections before flying by when going into the finale. But it's a nice little extension onto the base Quake II experience, and if you can make it through the initial hump, you'll do just fine. Just remember to look behind you, because there is a Turret there.

Ok Solstheim isn't too bad, but Tribunal is absolute garbage.

You pretty much summed up my thoughts on Ground Zero. It's weird, because I remember when I first picked up Quake 2 (after playing it some on a LAN) I tried out both The Reckoning and Ground Zero and I remember liking Ground Zero better. But having played both now I think I preferred The Reckoning overall. Now, in both cases I didn't get very far when I first played them, so maybe it was because The Reckoning starts with you being outside and then there's those weird mutants while Ground Zero starts off as a more standard Q2 experience.

I just got The Reckoning to work, so I plan to give it a go over the next couple of weeks. We'll see how I feel about it when I finish. I'm looking forward to trying it.

Oh, i'm not done! :D i'm still going to play, just taking a break for a while to play other stuff. I literally played that game for a month straight (which is my record for longest time consecutively playing a game. Usually i stop after i beat it)


But yeah, i do love that game.
