Revision as of 03:13, 17 May 2009

In 2009, a little Nekkoru thought of a fucking brilliant idea - to bolster his own gaming skills by re-living the history of video games, starting in 1980 and working up slowly.

The rules

The rules are simple. Nekkoru will be playing all major releases of a year and will not advance until beating at least one game.

Minor rules include no cheating, unless you found the cheat yourself (this, for example, includes the Warp Zones in Super Mario Brothers). Warps/passwords are allowed, if you found them out.

The games

Year Games played Games beaten
1980 Zork (PC), Berzerk, Pac-Man (Arcade) Zork (the only game I played that can be beaten)
1981 Ultima (PC), Wizardry (PC), Ms. Pac-man, Frogger, Donkey Kong (Arcade) Donkey Kong (later, I also finished Ultima)
1982 Xevious, Q-Bert, Zaxxon (Arcade), ET (Atari 2600), Ultima 2 (PC) Ultima 2
1983 Ultima 3 (PC), Manic Miner (ZX Spectrum), Gyruss, Star Wars (Arcade) Ultima 3 ( I seem to have a fondness for these games...)
1984 King's Quest (PC), Gauntlet (Atari 800) [NOT the hack'n'slash!] King's Quest, since the other doesn't have an ending.
1985 Kung-Fu, Ice Climber, Super Mario Bros. (NES), Gauntlet (Arcade) [The hack'n'slash.], Jet Set Willy (ZX Spectrum) Super Mario Bros.
1986 Ghosts'n'Goblins, Gradius, Kid Icarus, Metroid (NES) N/A
