I can’t believe how many are so butthurt over one extra character in a game. Remember how many Capcom games have had system exclusive characters? Trust me, judging by the beta the game is great and if I only had an Xbox One I’d buy it Day 1 in a heart eat!!

What Capcom games are you talking about?

So I need a Doom recommendation. If I only play one Doom game...what one and what version? I have never played any of them much. I actually remember renting it on SNES back in the day but did not get far...Doom64 looks interesting to me but is it the best Doom (or console Doom) experience?

Wait Laser Blast had an ending?

It didn't have an ending so much as it just ended. There was some maximum point total I don't remember and when you hit it the game just stopped.

Out of the 4 buyers, Microsoft was the best option but I think them staying third party is a win for everyone since the games will continue to be multi platform.

I offer you "Clue"...

Ha, I was going to mention Clue. Glad I caught up in the thread first as you beat me to it LoganDX.

My first console was an Atari 7800 but I’d bet the first game I ever beat was in NES. Most likely Super Mario Bros 1, though I can’t remember for sure

You mean like how they did scenes with Shang-Chi and The Mandarin for the Chinese release of The Avengers?

It's fairly common for the same movie to have different scenes/dialogue in different countries.. 

Different scenes in the same country is rare though.

Very true, I'm just trying to point out that this anti consumer behavior is pretty common and not as outlandish as everyone makes it seem. Hell personally I place more of the onus on Crystal Dynamics And Square Enix than Sony. Sony just dished out the cash for the deal the developer/publisher are the ones who deliberately sought out a way to shut out a portion of the gaming world. I could personally care less about Spider-Man's exclusivity but it is definitely anti consumer. It's just not a new issue and I don't forsee it going away.

I just remember in Gremlins 2 that there's a scene where John Wayne told the gremlins to stop messing with the movie, but in the home video release he was replaced with Hulk Hogan (or it was other way around).

It's pretty awesome to read the comments on the games you all beat as young gamers.

I started gaming on my brother's NES. My first system that was not a "hand-me-down" was a SNES, but I never had access to many games. I really started playing (and beating) games on my PS1. Played a good bit on PC too.

My first purchased system was the Atari 5200. I got my first job at McDonald's and could finally afford to buy my own console.

 

For me Adventure on the Atari 2600 was the first game I completed.

 

Did level 1, 2 and 3 and even found the magic dot and got to to the room saying Created Warren Robinett. 

 

Back then most games were just about high scores.

Same here. It was cool to unlock the first video game Easter egg.

 

I was a youngest child so we had an NES and I remember playing coop games on it like balloon fight but I mostly didn’t care for gaming then. I was in first grade and my family had a SNES and my brother bought Secret of Mana. I got into the story and the characters and read all the Nintendo Power magazines about it, that was the first game I cared about and beat. Earthbound was shortly after that.

The N64 was the first console I owned for myself. My brothers and I used to play 4 player WCW vs NWO and those other wrestling games.

I picked up the SNES right after I finished basic training in the military.  I played Super Mario World forever. The following year during  Christmas I got Super Castlevania 4 and I was truly blown away by that game.  Probably still my favorite SNES game to this day.

It took me 25 years to beat the first Castlevania. I could always get to Death and he would destroy me because the hallway before had taken a large portion of my health.

Some time later I beat him with just the axe and boomerangs. Probably one my best gamer moments. I don’t know people do it with just the unpowered whip.

Other way around (had to look it up cause I forgot about that one)

Hogan was in the theater, John Wayne on VHS.

It sadly is common practice, money talks.

 

I have not been too impressed with the Avengers game until recently. Spider-Man not being in the Xbox version does suck.. but I understand Sony has the rights to Spider-Man and tossed money at Square for the exclusive. 

 

Will it stop me from buying it on Xbox? no.

*if* I buy the game, it will be later when on sale anyway, and I'd rather have the Xbox version over PS4.

My dad got me into gaming, we used to play the original Super Mario Bros until we were able to beat it multiple times over in one sitting. He couldn't keep up with newer games, more buttons, more complex controls, etc. and lost interest. I was either reading books or playing videogames from the time I was able to do either, and honestly not much has changed. The first game I remember beating totally on my own and feeling a huge sense of accomplishment was Mario 3.

 

I also had some eyesight problems when I was 6 or 7 and my optometrist actually told my parents that gaming would be good to strengthen my eyes and specifically eye-hand coordination. I don't think they realized I'd still be doing it ~25 years later.

So I need a Doom recommendation. If I only play one Doom game...what one and what version? I have never played any of them much. I actually remember renting it on SNES back in the day but did not get far...Doom64 looks interesting to me but is it the best Doom (or console Doom) experience?

Doom 64 is good (and the remaster did a great job making it playable on modern systems) but I wouldn't recommend it for a starting point. 

 

The original Doom is still a lot of fun IMHO and is a testament to good game design, there's a reason there is still a huge community of people who make new WAD files and still play it. Doom 2016 is one of my favorite games of this generation, and a great starting point too. The 'Slayers Collection' is only $13 which is only $3-4 per game for the ones included. Doom 2016 is on sale for $10 by itself, so for $1 each you can get the older games too. Just do it.

Ok but did anybody ever land the plane on Top Gun or link the refueling lines in the middle of the next mission. Just landing the plane felt like I beat the game
Can’t wait to relive that in flight simulator


I never made it past the second full mission of Top Gun but I always felt like I won if I could land or refuel.

Not sure if Choplifter on Atari had an actual ending but I got really far into that game. Same with Rampage.
Never successfully crossed the Oregon Trail on the school computer.
I think the first game I ever beat was Contra with my friend. We stayed up all night playing that.

My biggest influence was probably my uncle (RIP),he was five years older then me, gave me his Atari 2600 and his insanity lol

Picked up the Doom Slayer's Collection, tried first Doom, almost tossed my cookies. Too soon with my brain damage, ugggggh. Still tho, I'm happy it's in my log

I Decided to go through the CAG Twitter thread of rare games and it's really weird to see allot of people's replies and knowing I own a good portion of said rare games, but also have some of those rare games sealed because I'm a hoarder and now I'll definitely never open them. Regardless I expect to die with said rare games and my body and those games all packed in a shipping container and dropped off somewhere at sea.

Hogan was in the theater, John Wayne on VHS.

Also Goonies on TNT back in the day (don't have cable now so don't know if it's still showing) would always edit back in the squid scene where they get attacked by a squid and Data uses his cassette player to drive it away. To this day I don't think any home video or theater release has a version where that scene is edited back in it.

So I read the article, and the source is an internal email that they sent to employees effectively trying to reassure them thst things were stable.

Sounds like the kind of thing you’d do when you were on the verge of selling.

Appreciate the input, you convinced me to pull the trigger on Slayer's Collection. I grabbed Skyrim earlier this morning too so now I am out of space cash.

1st game I beat was DOOM on the pc. My father was a CAD designer and had access to very powerful computers. He would pick me up from the house and take me to his work. His coworkers and I would play DOOM over LAN. That ended shortly after I was playing some race car sim and actually bricking a $20,000 pc. The company was not pleased but  never found out what happened so thankfully no one lost their jobs.

Man I have never had a game make me motion sick before until I played the original Doom on 360 on my 46” 1080p. May as well have eaten 3 week old raw chicken. Something about all that flat space and fast motion.

I fall under the Super Mario Bro’s category since we didn’t have any Atari games that had an ending.

Back in the day of the first Doom game a $20K PC was not out of the realm of possibility.  Specs were probably a 486 with 32MB of RAM. That would have been high end back then.

i'm guessing SMB must be the first game beaten for an overwhelming majority of people who were gaming up till the SNES came around, being that it was packaged with the console and one of the early "beatable" games, + everyone knew the warpzone tricks (and you'd try to trick newbs to jump to their deaths to get to the "secret" warpzone, lol).

 

I beat a good amount of classics in the 80's. When I try that stuff on remasters and emus nowadays, i'm amazed that I had that kind of patience and hand-eye coordination.

That's why I like how indie retro inspired games get me my nostalgia fix. They're much easier and don't make me feel too much like grandpa.
