I had this game as a kid, put lots of time into it, but just couldnt ever seem to get that far and I always wanted to make my way through it w/o any help from a walkthrough or faq....you know, do it proper (but pull my hair out in the process). I even put it in again a few yrs ago expecting to finally breeze through it now that im so much older and wiser .....yeah, you guessed it, didnt quite happen that way.
This time though something different happened. I lucked out and found an area that I had always missed, found the freeze beam and hi boots and it has completely changed the game. Made it to both mini bosses and beat them...now headed to Mother Brain!!! (i feel like im 8 again and cant wait to tell my friends at school)
I say all this to bring up the point Im so slowly getting to....What popular and top rated game(s) have you just never gotten around to playing/beating for one reason or another???
Here's a sample of my list (which only includes up to ps1/n64 era...the list grows exponentially when i include the past couple of gens):
-Metroid --- working on that now!
-Zelda 2 --- always get stuck in either the 3rd or 4th dungeon
-Mike Tyson's Punchout --- always get my butt handed to me by Iron Mike
-All Castlevania's --- just never been fond of any of them, plus Death always destroys me in 1
-Dragon Warrior --- never finished grinding to make it to get through last castle (i think...its been awhile)
-Final Fantasy --- played through all of them except 1 & 2
-Super Metroid --- going to get to that when I finish the first one
-Earthbound --- rented it as a kid but never finished...now too pricey for me
-Sonic --- never had Genesis as a kid, but played it a ton at friends houses
-Metal Gear Solid --- got a ps1 late in its life cycle and just never got around to it
This is just a small sample of my list. Curious to see if there are others out there like me. If nothing else though, this has just encouraged me to put down the 360 and ps3 for awhile and go back to old school for a nice change of pace.
edit: just beat Metroid, now on to Super Metroid!
