Silver Back Posted June 9, 2022 Report Share Posted June 9, 2022 A few years ago now I decided to get a full Atari 7800 game collection. The console means a lot to me and I wanted to complete my love for it. Since then I feel the need to justify buying all those games by reviewing or just finding any excuse to play each game. And not just for a few minutes, but for extended periods of time. Lately I've been thinking about how many of those games can be finished (as in there is an ending screen, and it's not just a high score endless arcade game) and if anybody has ever beat them all. Now I've beaten a few before, games like Scrapyard Dog, Ninja Golf and some homebrews, but I'm gonna start from scratch. That means I'm not counting those previous games and I'm gonna start now at 0 games completed. Between now, and December 31st at 11:59pm, I'm going to attempt to beat every possible retail and homebrew game that can be beaten, and return to this thread with proof and to discuss each one. I may also return to ask for advice and help prior to finishing a game. Feel free to follow along or attempt it yourself. So how many games can be beat? Well... Scrapyard Dog, Fatal Run, Karateka, PAL Impossible Mission, Ninja Golf, Alien Brigade, Planet Smashers, Choplifter, Double Dragon, Fight Night, Ikari Warriors, Meltdown, Midnight Mutants, Sentinel, Super Skateboarding, Tower Toppler, Bentley Bear, Dragons Descent, GoSub, Knight Guy, Rikki & Vikki, and Missing in Action. Did I miss any? Should I count games that loop endlessly like Kung Fu Master, which has a final boss on the fifth floor but never ends? If I missed any games then I appreciate the input, and please stay tuned for updates. Let me know if you've ever attempted anything similar or what games you've beaten yourself!
