First 50 Games here!

    Braid (PSN)
    Sonic Chaos (Game Gear)
    Sonic Triple Trouble (Game Gear)
    Mega Man 5 (NES)
    Mega Man 3 (NES)
    Uno (PSN)
    Left 4 Dead 2 (PC Download)

    And Yet it Moves (PC Download)
    Motorstorm (PS3)
    Windosill (PC Download)
    Final Fantasy II (GBA)

    *New*Metroid: Other M (Wii)
    I'm glad I didn't get this around launch. If I had I would have bought into the hype that it was going to be Super Metroid in 3D. As it is, it is much more like a 3D fusion. Though Nintendos voice work leaves something to be desired, and at times is down right aweful, I really enjoyed how they explored Samus as a person rather then Samus as a Soldier. There were some minor problems with controls not always being responsive (could have been my wii-mote though) and cameras not showing me what I needed to see, but otherwise it was a smooth ride. The game also filled / explained in a bunch of small, but very annoying, problems with the lore and canon, so that was appreciated. I'm not sure where I would rank it yet, but its definatly not on the bottom of the pile. And I finished with 51% completion for those who are curious, I plan on getting the rest in the coming couple of weeks.


Final count: 63

Okay, this is now my final update for the year.

Total: 98

Ok, now I'm really at 98. This was my first time playing ZOE2, which ended up being longer (about 10 hours) and tougher than I thought it would be. I wanted to play through this as it was a left over from Snickerdoodle's Summer Challenge that I never got around to. I was ready to give up in the the first couple of hours because I found the game's controls and camera to be frustrating and the mech underpowered. I am glad I persevered, as the middle third got better, and the last third was absolutely a blast. Still, I don't know that I like it better than ZOE1, even if it is probably a better game.

Total: 100!

I ended with a game that I try to play through annually, and a game I had never played before. SPF2T must be one of the best all time puzzle games, and it feels quite at home on a handheld. Renny Blaster was a fun beat 'em up with a Castelvania aesthetic that I would recommend highly. I didn't realize when I played it that it is a $400+ PCE-CD game (I played a ROM), and while it is plenty of fun it isn't that fun. Renny Blaster also gives me a PCE-CD game for the year, meaning that I beat at least one game for every system and portable that I owned when the year began! Mission Accomplished!

Some Stats:

Systems:
Current Gen: 55 (across 7 systems + PC)
Retro: 45 (across 21 systems + MAME)

Top 5 Favorite Games Beaten: God of War III, Dragon Age Origins, Ikaruga, Gunstar Heroes, Portal

Thanks again to Luke for a great thread - I never actually thought I would beat so many games in a year, but everyone's participation in this thread really helped me see it through. It was great to make such a dent in the backlog, and while I don't plan to beat quite so many games next year, I now know that it can be done!

As a bonus picture for some laughs, here I am standing over my kill!

Awesome thread. I'm glad I participated this year, it's been a blast, and I've finally begun sitting down with so many of the games that I've been meaning to get to. I don't know if I'll get nearly as many done next year, but it will be worth the personal challenge. I've already begun eagerly eyeballing titles that I want to get to next year.

I'm looking forward to 2011!

I'm glad so many of you guys kept up with your lists, and get ready for the Games Beaten: 2011 Thread. This year I'm going to change the format of the thread, but only a little.
