Nekkoru's Epic Videogame Quest
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 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.
