Gaming resolutions
Yes it's early but we're on a tight deadline ;)

What retro game do you resolve to finish in 2011 and why?

Starflight on the Megadrive.Back when it came out I played it for weeks and weeks and got to what turned out to be the very end of the game , but couldn't work out what to do and had to return to to my mate .
Well it WAS his copy!
I have my own one now so hopefully have the free time to finish it.

Shadow of The Beast II on the Amiga without cheating. Because I feel lesser of a man otherwise.

First Samurai on the C64, known about it for years but only really just started to play it. Very large game and a lot of fun - sort of a martial arts version of Turrican.

Not so much to complete a game, but to get a respectable score on Missile Command.

As much as I love the game I am absolutely terrible at it & seeing World Record holder Tony Temple play the game at R3Play has really inspired me to learn how to play it properly.

Symphony of the Night, because I have like 4 copies of it, but I've never played it, even though I love Circle of the Moon.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX because I bought it ages ago, played it for an hour, then put it back in my gaming cupboard never to be touched again. I feel ashamed every time I open that cupboard & see that box looking back at me.

Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It's just the game I always wish I'd finished, but have never seemed to get very far into. Partly through time constraints, and partly through my own badness at the game. Have always been jealous of those who talk about the later levels, I want to be part of that crowd.

Final Fantasy VII. I played through to the big battle with Proud Clod (about 40 hours of play!) back in '97 but hadn't levelled up enough so couldn't beat him. 2 years later I started from scratch and played about 30-odd hours only for a mishap with a memory card to scupper me again. FFVII is in my top 5 games of all time but I still haven't seen the end. I can't let it get to 15 years without completing the game so 2011 has to be the year!

Pocket Bomberman for the GameBoy Colour. Just because I'm surprised how good it actually is, and I haven't been able to put it down since I bought it.
