Of all the games you've played up until now, what game in the long list of games I'm sure the Video Game Section player's have tried, was the first you have completed. What game was it and how old were you when you beat it? Remember, the first game you ever beat, doesn't matter which game, if you can't remember, pick the one you can remember.

Partir!

This is good, I cannot remember that far back but my earliest memory would be on Age of Mythology, it is an RTS. I was just playing a skirmish match and I think I was 4 or 5

I've played a lot of games, but the first I've actually beaten was… well, aside from Pokémon Blue, I think it was Star Fox 64. (: Managed to complete the game when I was about eight or nine. During the final level, I was required to battle against a gigantic gorilla known as "Andross." Whenever you shoot at him, part of his body would get damaged. Once the part is completely destroyed, it'd break away from his body. Once your destroy all of his body, the only things that would remain are his eyes. His eyes would float around the air as if they're possessed by ghosts, and they're extremely hard to shoot. Once you get them defeated, though, then successfully taken down Andross. This isn't the end, though. Now, a major explosion would occur, and you'd have to get out of the place before your Arwing gets wrecked. This takes a lot of skill, and if you make one mistake, then you would be stuck in the place, get hurt by the explosion, and lose one of your lives. If you have extra lives, then you'll get to replay this part until you escape out of the place place. If you can't, then game over!

I was pretty close to completing Super Mario 64 as well, but couldn't get the job done, since there were about five - six left for me to collect. xD I did collect them eventually, but that was after beating Star Fox 64.

The first game i've actually beaten is Command and Counquer: Tiberian Sun: Firestorm.
Yes, not the game, the expansion... it felt a lot easier, though the last mission was a pain in the butt (Core Defender ruining all my mining bases D: )

The first game I beat was the Pokemon TCG game for Game Boy Color, which was actually the first Pokemon game I ever played, and the first game I owned. I guess you can say that the game started my love for Pokemon, as I started watching the anime after beating it, then got more Pokemon games for Christmas that year, which happened to be Red, Blue, Yellow, and Gold versions.

Super Mario Land 2 for the GB, I got it for my 7th birthday and it took me a full month (in easy mode!). I think I could beat it on normal in a single evening if I tried right now.

I really couldn't tell you. Back when I was little I'd play games and never really finish them... the first game I have a clear memory of beating is Super Mario Galaxy, but I could have beaten some before that.

Pocket Monsters Red, I think. As for a more interesting answer, my second completed game is probably Shogun: Total War as the Shimazu, generally thought of as the easiest clan to play, a status it retains in Total War: Shogun 2. The reasons being that they start on Kyūshū (island with many small provinces) and are among the first to get access to firearms. DLC brought the Otomo to Shogun 2, whom are arguably easier, but since they start Christian they suffer an effectively universal diplomatic penalty that is difficult to surmount.

Yeah, I believe the first game that I officially finished was Pokemon Blue, with Pokemon Yellow following after that. Let me tell you, it was quite the tricky experience trying to finish the rest of the games that I played... For one thing, I was kind of bad at Super Mario Bros. Well, 'bad' as in, I couldn't get the timing of Mario's jumps down perfectly, and it always ended up with me bumping me against a goomba or something. Or falling to my death. The Legend of Zelda for NES had a really big over world, so, I of course was lost in Hyrule constantly, ahaha. Which was a really bad thing too, because there were places where you'd be 'in the wrooong neighborhood' so to speak, so, the enemies are way to tough w/ your lack of hearts and items.

I believe I was 9 years old when I beat Pokemon Blue, where I started to fully understand some of the mechanics of pokemon Blue, like, raising pokemon other than your pokemon starter, and actually using type match-ups to your advantage. Squirtle saved me a lot of grief in the Rock Tunnel, for example, ahaha. Hm, after I beat Pokemon Yellow, I tried my hand at beat the N64 games, which included Star Fox 64, Kirby 64, Mario 64, and the Ocarina of Time. I finally beat them when I was 12 or so, but it was quite the experience!

I'm almost certain it was the original Super Mario Bros and I was like 7 or 8. Might have been something earlier on Atari or he PC but I cannot recall.

The first game that I managed to beat was Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Still, it must've taken me years to actually beat it, as the first time I played it I was 4, and I just can't see 4 year old me completing a video game of any difficulty.

Now, I could probably beat Sonic 2 with my eyes closed, and have finished it well over 100 times at this point.

it depends on your definition of the term complete. If you mean just beat the story and nothing else, then for me it was Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped. If you mean actually going out of your way to find and collect every single item and beating every stage, then for me it was either New Super Mario bros, Kirby Superstar or Kirby 64 the crystal shards

The first I beat was Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced, shortly followed by Super Mario Land. I could beat both rather easily on a good day.

I started playing games at the age of 3, so I don't remember what games I played at first let alone which ones I completed. Although, considering my age I would find it hard to believe I completed a game. Pokemon Yellow was the first I remember completing. I was around 7 years old at the time. Pokemon games were the main occupation of my time at that sort of age, and the Xbox. I must have completed one or two Harry Potter games at that age, too. My Dad so happened to be filming the family when I completed my first Harry Potter game and we still have the video; I was running around merrily "wooing" in my high-pitched voice.

I think -and this is going off of my absolutely terrible memory, mind you- that the first video game I ever beat was Yoshi's Island. I can't remember how old I was when it happened, but it's the earliest game I remember beating all on my own. Although it might have been Kirby's Dream Land 3 (although not a 100% completion with the true final boss, that came many years later) or Kirby's Superstar... it's been so very long.
