Basically, this is a topic where you can brag about beating Contra games. Me, I've beaten Super Contra (last level was friggin insane! disappointing final boss though :(). What about you?

I can beat "Contra III" (Super Probotector: Alien Rebels) on the Easy and Normal difficulty setting without continuing. Hard is too exhausting for me.

And I have beaten "Contra Advance: The Alien Wars Ex" on the GBA but only on Easy mode. Even the Normal mode is way too hard for me.

Probotector pwned me, that's the European name for Contra on the NES, I'm terrible at it.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

I think only the original (with and without the code) and ReBirth. Possibly SuperC too, i can't remember. I've played pretty much every Contra game, but not to completion. Contra games for me tend to be palate-cleansers, where i'll play them until i die or maybe a continue or two in between deciding what "big" game to play next.

None. The final stage of Contra III is real hard, and Contra III is the only Contra game I've officially played. Gunstar Heroes does not count, though I beat that game once.

The only one I've beaten is the orginal Contra, but that doesn't count because I cheated. :P

None, I can't even get past the first level in any of them. I never really try too hard, though. Just a continue or two until I finally decide to quit.

Ive beaten Contra NES on Normal without cheating.
Ive beaten Contra 4 on Easy and Normal no cheating.
Ive beaten Contra Advance the EX Wars on Easy (havent had it long and still havent figured out all the patterns enough to beat on Normal)
I think I beat Contra III but I cant remember if I did I prob used a code cause I didnt own the game my cousin did.

Contra 4 is by far the worst. Ive only completed 20+ of the Challanges as they get almost insane difficult. The enemy AI canges the patterns too much and makes the game almost unplayable and it even makes my sadistic taste for gaming make my head want to explode.

Whoa, wasn't expecting this to get revived. o.O
Even though I've got several more of the games since my last post, I haven't beaten another yet. Got to the final boss in Contra 4... :(

I once got to the final boss on Contra III's easy mode, although the final stage is still hard.
I love a challenge in a video game. :)

Every last one of them. Heck, I probably pumped enough quarters into Contra to buy the arcade cabinet back in the day. :)

Amen. That's what made money in the arcade.
speaking of which, I'd love the arcade Contras to be on the VC arcade, never played them...

All of them except the PS1 entries...mostly cause I just didn't enjoy them. Contra 4 more than any other--I dare to say I could take any of that game's testers one-on-one. Don't think I ever beat Hard Corps or Contra 3 on Hard without dying though...and Rebirth is still too new to beat on Nightmare one-continue. I can do it though, if you give me a few tries on stage 3 (just can't get down that ending part on the mechanical dino-things...too much stuff from all sides) and a couple attempts at the final boss.

Super C, or whatever its arcade name was for the second game, was REALLY hard though...that slow-sweep diagonal fire is so hard to utilize well. The first wasn't quite as bad mostly due to easier design...aiming troubles still existed, though.
