Next year I'm going to be determined to finally finish The Adventures of Rad Gravity for the NES.

Every year I think that this will be the year where I finally complete it and 2011 will be the 21st anniversary of me first playing it so it seems like a great time to finally finish off the final boss once and for all and to stop having it hang over my head.

My resolution for 2011 is to finish Mire Mare, that's if the Stampers or Rare or a combination of the two finish it's coding and release the damn thing! :wink:

By my reckoning it's been almost exactly 26 years in the making (first advertised around December 1984 when you escaped the Underwurlde via one of it's three exits) so in theory completing it should be more than worthy of a New Year's resolution.

Finally completed Amstrad Renegade, Dizzy Treasure Island & Batman after 20+ years, although emulator save points very much used.
Up next - Continental Circus, Chevy Chase & Postman Pat(map of Greendale needed) :D

Not sure who should be more ashamed, you or me for not completing Ocarina of Time! :lol:

Shining Force 3 on Sega Saturn, because unlike a juicy steak, it's simply too good to enjoy only halfway done.

He's impossible , I eventually ended up using cheat codes.

Ridiculous really , as the rest of the game is set at a nice dificulty level , but the final boss is stupidly hard to beat

He isn't impossible, I managed it without cheating... although it's been so long I can't remember how...

Yeah, definitely possible without cheats, just a pain in the hoop.

I shall be attempting to finish Goku Makaimura Kai for the PSP after a mate serendipitously sending it to me. It's the last of the GnG franchise that I haven't finished so far.
