    Does rolling over the score in Asteroids on Atari 2600 count?

    Adventure on the 2600. All 3 difficulties and finding the Easter egg (admittedly with a hint guide).

    Hope so that that and Pinball (also on the Atari 2600) would be my answers. I also knew several patterns to follow, depending on the ghosts' movements, that would let you play Pacman indefinitely, but that's not really the same thing.

    5-year-old me could not contain the hype. It got a lot of hate back in the day, but apparently I thought it was a decent game. I still do.

    Something on the SNES or N64. I can't recall much about the SNES except playing Mario Paint, so I imagine either Super Mario 64 or Super Smash Bros would be it.

    Super Mario Bros for the NES, I don't pay a lot of attention to release dates, so I am guessing that this one is the oldest one :P

    At first I was going to say Super Mario Bros. on NES, but I think that might not be right since I would always get stuck on 8-3 thanks to the hammer bros.

    So I'm going to have to go with Dragon Warrior on NES. I got it for free in the mail with a Nintendo Power subscription that was given as a gift for my birthday, a few months after the Xmas that I got my Nintendo system. I had no idea what an RPG was but that didn't stop me! My sister and I liked killing the golems and metal slimes the most, so we would hunt those down endlessly and level up along the way. After a very long time of trial and error I finally beat it. It felt great to tell your friends that you actually beat a Nintendo game that wasn't Super Mario Bros. I probably beat it 10 more times to show various people the ending.

    I could keep a game of Atari Pinball going as long as I wanted, but I think the 1st game I beat that actually had an ending was SMB, followed soon after by Bionic Commando.

    Just to clarify, is this question asking "What is the Oldest (by date of a game's release) game you completed" or "What is the Oldest (meaning the very first you've played) game you remember beating in your youth"?

    I had a Mattel Intellivision when I was 8 but I never beat any of the games because they were too hard. I remember hating E.T. after playing for 5 minutes. And I tried for hours to beat Bump N Jump but the races just kept coming and I gave up trying to reach the end.

    So I guess the first game I actually beat was Diddy Kong Racing on N64.

    Between insane and insecure
    This one is going to come as a shock to everyone and it wasn't Yoshi's Island.
    It was Super Mario 3.

    Actually beating a game? Probably SMB on the NES? Before that you really couldn't beat games, you could just keep playing for the high score.

    I think some older games had endings but I am hard pressed to remember any of them right off the top of my head.

    As far as older games, playing Asteroids was pretty cool but no joystick... uuuggghh made it so hard, I mean I was already having to stand on a chair to play the thing damn it... Was so happy the newer games had joysticks and dials. (Loved Tempest, so fun!) Also <3 being tall enough to play games with no chair/stool needed!!! Growing up had its advantages!!! lol

    I remember my older brother getting so mad at me... I can't help it I am a freak of nature and was better at video games at 4 than he was at 14... lol
