It'd be rough to go to the end of this year, especially considering so many people haven't gotten their hands on them yet, but there's a looooot of game in this system, thought it'd be fun to track everyone's progress. My system should be in next week, I'll probably start off with Super Mario World for a full 100% including the weird world I forgot how to switch to, where the maps turn brown and the enemies change.

I'll at least be keeping track of my own progress, but post if you'd like to join in. Post up an end screen if you feel like it when you finish something off.

Hmm...I might have to get in on this. There are a few games on the Classic that I've never played/beaten, and most of the games I HAVE played, I'd love to play again. It will have to wait until after Odyssey though, my game time is booked until then.

The entire world changes to that AFTER you get 100%, and you can't change it back.

Oh! Well, that's easy enough. Double clear then!

That sucks. smiley:::frown Keep your eyes open on the site, may find someone with an extra or an extra-extra. If a deal I'm working on for a Euro model goes through, I'd be happy to sell off the SNES. Though that does mean I'd have to basically double-clear Mario World twice. Eh, worth it.

Yeah, I'm not too worried about it. Other people want it more than I. I will get one it I see one though. I've been lucky that a lot of users here have hooked me up in the past. I don't like to be greedy though.

Interesting thread. Lots of RPGs on it. It should be fun. You need a table to track progress like the 2017 console thread. I would probably get in on that.

I could do it manually in the OP. I could make a table but I'd have to do five minutes of research on how to do that on this forum I'm guessing. Either way I'd be happy to track progress

I guess you don't really need a table. I'm just OCD. :P

What would beating Mario Kart be considered?

I'd say all the cups on 150cc or whatever the highest is? If you wanna wuss out and just do 50cc, just don't tell me about it. That way only you will know the shame...

I would like to get in on this.
I might not finish a whole lot before the end of the year tho, with some great games coming out, but this sounds like it would get me to play and finish some of the games I wouldn't want to. Aka Contra 3, that crap is crazy hard for me

I can't start mine until Christmas. It's hidden for the boys. My oldest was asking to get one. I'm about to break on sneaking it out.

I probably can't dedicate enough time to beat Ghost n Goblins, but after playing Cuphead I just may be able to work my way through it.

Seeing credits roll. Seriously, no one who grew up in this era would have said any different back in the day.

Isn't that something like beating star cup on 150cc or something? I vaguely remember something about that but its been a while since I played through it.

For Mario Kart 64, I wouldn't have ever considered just beating all cups on 50cc to be "beating the game". 50/100cc are easy beginner modes just to get you ready for the real thing on 150cc.

I don't remember what it entailed, but back in the day (before internet) the benchmark was always a credit roll. Nobody denied you beat Super Metroid because you didn't get the "best ending", just like no one considered you didn't beat Street Fighter II if you beat it on level one. Anything else is a modern POV.

If Walmart ships my order and doesn't cancel on me I'd be in for fun. Not looking hopeful as it's supposed to be here tomorrow and hasn't shipped so getting pissed.

I could have gotten one off Amazon treasure truck but I didn't because I had an order and didn't want to be greedy....

Next time, be greedy! You could always sell it here to help out a GTZ'er!

Would have also been an hour drive each way probably. If I knew I wasn't getting one I'd have done it for sure.

Still hoping I get one eventually, I even talked wife into finally trying the games and now I'm stuck just waiting.
