This will be the hub for the posts I write regarding games I’ve beaten in 2014. Note that I won’t necessarily have beaten them for the first time in 2014. But with each game I beat, I’ll give some brief thoughts on it, a summary, etc.
A couple ground rules here:
- “Beating” a game involves getting any “good” ending. For, EG, Cave Story, the “bad ending” wouldn’t count, but the “normal ending” would.
- “Beating” a game does not necessarily mean 100%ing it. In the case of, EG, Yoshi’s Island, beating 6-8 would count as beating the game; I would not have to 100% all the levels.
- As in the case of Metroid, all that matters is that I beat the game in the year 2014. I may have started it in 2013, or even years before that.
- For games with multiple quests or loops, such as Low G Man, I count “beating the game” as “getting a substantially satisfying ending”. What I mean by this is that the game tells you more-or-less “Congratulations! The End!” even if it then follows that up with “Now try an even harder quest!”
