Have you ever finished a game in NES/Family Computer?

It truly is sweet to remember playing with the family computer...but it sure was hard to play that thing. We only had few NES games (we even had a 120 games in 1 ) at home and I could remember finishing Contra and Rockman 2. I'm currently playing Metal Gear on an emulator and I'd say it really is difficult without the save state options from the emulator. But of course, there were no save states back then. Anyone who finished those games during those times sure are very good players! Hahaha, I remember playing Street Fighter and I was having trouble making Ryu do a hadouken...especially a shoryuuken (I guess it's because I was only around 6 that time). Have you finished a game in the NES/Family Computer (not with an emulator but the real console)? What game(s) did you beat? Did/do you find playing NES easy or hard? I'd love to hear your experiences on playing the NES console. It's something cool to reminisce for us...and something big that the new generation missed.

Hello EnslinPorter, I remember playing Nes, or what we call family computer. The whole family would love playing that. I remember sleeping late at night just to finish a game. I have several games that I was able to finish, some of these are Contra(as you mentioned), Bomberman, Lode Runner & 1942. There are also games that I enjoy a lot but can't remember if I were able to finish it, some of these are Mappy, Pooyan and Adventure Island. My son is also enjoying those games now. But not using the Family computer. My husband had a copy of nes games, and my son would play it using a PC. There is also a no save option for this one, so if my son decided to stop playing, he will start again in stage one when he wants to play again. Take care and enjoy posting -red_amethyst

Hahaha, I love Lode Runner! I found it hard when I got stuck and the enemies would climb up from the dug hole It's nice that your son gets to experience the same thing although it's on the PC. Thanks for sharing your experience with the Family Computer red_amethyst!

Wow, those are cool games! I definitely miss Punchout. I found it hard because I was able to play Super Punchout on SNES before trying out the original punchout. I miss the early Megaman series.

I only ever finished one game on my NES, and that was Super Mario Bros. I had several games for mine, but I never completed them, but to be fair that was because I played Super Mario Bros so much! I do have a lot of the games on emulator now, some of the older games I think are far better than the games of today!

I remember finishing many NES games. Never had the Famicom, but the NES was good. We only had so many games, but I do remember finishing quite a few. Usually it was games like Contra or Renegade. Super Mario Bros and a few others. Those were the good games, and there were so many others.
