@Ack:

12. Among The Sleep (PC)

For my birthday last year, my sister funded Among The Sleep in my name on Kickstarter. Funny thing, last year, I didn't own a PC able to play it haha.

I loaded it up tonight and got sucked in, and beat it in one 4-hour sitting.

It's sort of like Amnesia. No fighting. Just hiding and navigating. There were several "oh shit' moments that really made me jump. The story gets really F'd up and disturbing by the end #nospoilers.

I'd recommend it, though it is short for the price.

BTW, was bummed that the credits have my sister's name instead of mine due to some mis-communication. :\

15) Grand Theft Auto V, the second mission but with a different outfit/skin


Yeah, my list reads a bit like this, but every title named is either a different game or a separate expansion pack in the same series, like all 6 of the Catacomb games, or Alien Shooter and both expansions, the F.E.A.R. expansions, the Quake II expansions, the Jedi Knight expansion, etc.

R-type - PCB
I had been struggling with this one off and on for about 10 years, played it on various ports/collections. I get the PCB last week and load it into a cab yesterday. Second play I 1cc it. I don't think R-type needs any introduction, either you love it, or you despise it.

It is my favorite shmup. I have never 1CC'ed it (and I probably never will), but I love it to death.

I've been playing it a bit on my SMS and I'm surprised by how much flicker there is, especially since Gradius on the NES has none.

I'm just playing around wit'cha guys.

I have exactly no DLC for any game. Expansion packs? Sure. For Doom 3 I bought "The erection of evil" or something like that. It was basically a minigame. I wouldn't count it on my list, but the thing about this page is that you are welcome to make your list the way you want to.

we've had this conversation like 30 times, but a lot of modern "DLC" is straight up expansions that can be full games in their own right lasting dozens of hours.

See, that's the cool thing about the ones I've been playing. Most of them have been full length games in their own right. F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate was about the same length as the original F.E.A.R., ran alongside the plot of it and the first expansion, and offered bonus missions afterward for more replayability. Mysteries of the Sith was a full-length expansion played mostly as Mara Jade, while the Quake II expansions were about half as long as the original game but offered way more challenge with some new and nasty enemies. It all really depends on the expansion.

Conversely, I tend not to go back and replay much when I finish, so of the 40 games on my list, only two were things I had ever beaten before this year. I like the freshness of it all.

I know we've had this discussion before. I like pointing out why I like this thread. You can use save states, emulators, cheats, whatever...It's about beating a game.
