      Ghosts N Goblins was the same, although, I don't recall having to beat it the second time through in one life. It's been a while.

        What's funny is that when you made it to the end, you had to beat it a second time in one sitting order to get the real ending. The game is like some cruel, practical joke.


        it would also send you part way back if you beat it with the wrong weapon selected, then you had to finish it again just to get the fake ending i think even with cheats that was where I stopped before the computer got a flying lesson.

          Yes!!! That was the worst surprise ever, and if I remember correctly, it was even harder for the second time and I had the japanese version too, that I think was yet more difficult. Its still like a Vietnam flashback; you wake up in the middle of the night in sweat and screaming.

          CAPCOOM!!! CAPCOOM!!!

          A couple of years ago, I tried to face some of the demons of my youth in the safety of emulators save/load easiness, but I couldn't finnish the last boss even once!!! I used too much time during the level, and in the boss it soon became obvious, that even absolutely perfect performance wasn't enough, the time would run out no matter what I did. And I still have my cat like reflexes and have maintained reaction times to beat my kids in Smash Bros. I wanted to shoot the emulator, "I'm not old yet! You made me save into wrong slot!!!"


          That wasn't the best, or at least the most pleasant example, but I miss the times, when playing through the game felt like an achievement. Novadays the games seem to be playing through themselves and theres all kinds of auxiliary achievements in place to help filling that empty feeling.
          I am wanting, I am thinking
          To arise and go forth singing,
          Sing my songs and say my sayings,
          Hymns ancestral harmonizing,
          Lore of kindred lyricking.
          In my mouth the words are melting;
          Utterances overflowing
          To my tongue are hurrying,
          Even against my teeth they burst.

            There's some newer games that certainly revive that feeling of old school frustration. Three of my recent favorites have been Contra Rebirth and Mega Man 9 & 10, all of which are availble on the next gen systems' download service. I've played and beaten a handful of older games from these two series, so I can say from experience that they really ramped up the frustration level on these.

            But still... nothing holds a candle to Super Ghouls and Ghosts when it comes to hard core gaming. Even as a kid, when my only obligations on the weekends were to mow the lawn and wash the dishes, I still didn't have the level of patience and focus it takes to beat the game even once.

            This guy must have been the Zen Master:

            Hard: JP-8000, MC-505, R3, microSTATION, Moog Theremin, miniKP, Ineko, Bitrman
            Soft: Ableton Live 8, Korg Legacy Collection, FM8, D16 Classic Boxes/SilverLine Collection

                  I bet I'm the lamest gamer on these boards.

                    Currently playing Max Payne 3 - awesome.

                    Recently played:
                    Fallout Vegas, Mass Effect 2 (preparation for playing 3), Skyrim and the Deus Ex sequel, which I thought was one of the best games ever.

                    I miss a few games from the 90s - XWing/Tie Fighter, Dark Forces, Fallout 1 and 2 and Baldur's Gate 2.

                      I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it here before, but I miss Descent.

                            Playing Fallout 1 right now! I also miss when Star Wars games were actually good. They screwed the pooch with Battlefront 3 it seems. Rogue Squadron 2 on Gamecube is still a favorite

                              Descent was cool but very disorienting!

                              Hey, Amigas were cool, I remember my friend had one and I thought it was the coolest thing. Demoscene guys were super 1337

                                I loved that game!

                                Lately, I'm hooked on shooting people on Battlefield 3. I've wasted too many hours though. I'm thinking of removing all video games from my computer. Instead of playing music.
