I've been focusing on finishing some Wii, PS2 and DS games, so haven't played retro games lately, actually there's been a while since the last time I finished a retro game, other than Ninja Gaiden that is, I play it and beat it, at least once a week, trying to finish it without continuing, I'll do it one day.
The last "new" retro game I finished should have been Dragon's Curse, some months ago.

Say, I'm thinking of getting either Bomberman '94 (TG16), Ys Books 1 & 2 (TG16), or Phantasy Star IV (Genesis). Which one should I get?

Bomberman '94 is much different in structure than Bomberman '93 (which more resembled standard Bomberman games like the arcade ones). I've only played through the first couple of stages of the first world (seems to be more levels than '93) and I'm really enjoying how different it is.

Thnx Sean n Jiggy. Mite get PSIV, then. Or Bomberman. Probably PSIV tho.

I'm also playing Paper Mario, and though its story and characters are wacky, its difficulty is INSANELY hard!!! (I've rescued all 7 star spirits, btw.)

I beat Dr. Robotniks MBM last night FINALLY. I was getting so ticked off with that game but beat it. I almost hit my head on the ceiling fan when I jumped up I was so excited. And relieved.

Me and brother beat Streets of Rage 3 this weekend. The level with all the flashing lights and colors (dance club) has to be the most psychadelic level ever created.

With Streets of Rage 4 out now, it reminded me that I haven't played the first three games in awhile so I did just that. Played through and beat Streets of Rage 1 and 2 and Bare Knuckle 3 which I find easier then SoR 3.

I also did a playthrough a few nights ago of Super Dodgeball just because and beat that as well.

I just realized someone revived an 11 year old thread wtf?

Uh, assuming this thread doesn't die after I pointed it out, I've been playing FFVII (as in the original) again to try to beat it. But the last one I actually beat was Earthbound. I nearly beat it back in like 2007, but I actually finished it on SNES Classic a year or two ago...

Wait wait, I just remembered I played through Contra fairly recently. I've been going through the NES library, its so easy to appreciate actually good games like Contra so much more after playing all the dated mediocre at best stuff.

With SNES and NES Online being a thing and coming with a handy rewind feature, making it easier to complete the classics now is a good time to revive an 11 year old thread. I'm sure many of us have beaten a retro game recently.I have one, Doom 64, what a game.

I have a really bad habit of never finishing games. Even some of my favourite all time games, I've never actually completed them. I get close, then start playing something else with the intention to come back to it but that rarely happens.

And so Final Fantasy Adventure comes to a close for me. I recently played this game again since I got it on the Switch with the Mana Collection. It's been quite some time since I played it and I was never able to finish it untill now (save files got corrupted or deleted, lost the game). So here's my thoughts.

Background : This is the first game of the Mana Series. Yes it's called Final Fantasy Adventure but really except for some sprites and common elements between the two series (Chocobos, Moogles) there really isn't anything Final Fantasy at all about this game. It tells the story of a lone warrior who has to stop the villain from destroying the Mana Tree and bringing back an evil empire. Pretty basic story.

My thoughts:. As someone who enjoys the Mana series it was great seeing where it began. Yes this game is a product of it's time, limited inventory space, horrible overworld map and simple game play but that's the charm of it. The music is great and some of the best I have heard on the Gameboy. The story was simple but I enjoyed it. If you have played Secret of Mana then you will notice alot of familiar things, from enemies, to NPCs to Story elements. In fact it was seeing some of these things in this game that made sense of why things were in the Secret of Mana, of noted why it is you find the Rusty Sword at the bottom of a waterfall in Secret of Mana.

There were some things that I did find annoying but most of this could be attributed to when the game was made. Mainly the size of your inventory, how poor the overworld map design is and the lack of directions. There were also these puzzles where you half to freeze enemies on switches most of the time the enemies would either get killed after they were frozen or get stuck somewhere when frozen and then only way is to reset and respawn the enemies, problem is to respawn enemies you have to back 5 rooms to make the respawn which made some dungeons seem longer.

Overall a great game especially if you are a Mana fan or just curious as to see where it all started. I highly recommend playing it especially as a pellet cleanser from modern games.

@Zeldafan79 I loved Willow. It was one of the games that I never owned as a kid but my friend did. Everytime I would have the money to get it I would go to Toys R Us and the sleeves would always be out of the tickets. I can't remember if I ever beat it but yeah for sure it's a hidden gem.
