Which ones, I have dozens upstairs I have barely played and would like to start with an easy one. Which is easiest, Sonic 1,2 or 3 for example?

Sonic 2 is really easy, you should hang your head in shame if you can't clock that. :wink:

I always found Sonic 3 the easiest of the 3, well being able to save seemed to make it easier anyway though none of them are really that hard to begin with.
Castle of Illusion and Ristar are another 2 mega drive games that are easy enough to win and are excellent to boot.

Yep World of Illusion is really easy too, esp if you play as Mickey. Great game too!

Ok this really proves what a lousy gamer I am. I've spent hours trying to complete Ristar and I can't do it - even when using savestates!!!

I remember a time at my local arcade ,being shown how easy tekken 3 was to whizz through, just by using one move with paul pheonix, his dashing palm punch thing,half circle forward and right punch.

Maybe it's still the same with todays' tekken 25 :)

I remember seeing a few guys playing Tekken 3 which also consisted of doing only a few moves to win. This time though it was eddy's upside down spinning kicks move. Same thing every match. To be fair though anyone adept with Tekken would be able to block/counter/juggle fools like that all day.
Last I remember about Tekken 5 DR (the latest one) was that juggling opponents in the air is the way to go, once they are up there its nothing but pain until they hit the ground!

You can complete the game quite easily using Law's simple combos, both with punches and kicks. Again a human opponent would cream you using the same tactics

Sabre Wulf wasn't too tough going. The basic aim was to work out the shortest route through the jungle that passed every dead end room where a part of the amulet could be. Took me a couple of weeks of on/off playing to memorise the route and still have it in my head now.... (How sad!!) lol. Havin said that I could complete it 100% of the time back then, only about 1 in 3 times now.....take the odd wrong turn or just a bit too careless with the jungle beasties.....

The annoying thing was about a week after I'd worked out the route, my mate turned up with a bloody map out of a mag......ARGH!!! Y i bother!!

Also can complete the hobbit in speccy/bbc, that took me bloody months tho..... :-(

I never get why theres a room at the top of the great river thats always "Too full to enter" tho. I mean why bother puttin it there??

Because it adds an extra location without actually having to program it, saving time, effort and memory.

What I always thought to be odd is that you can complete it without meeting Gollum or collecting the One Ring. You can get through the whole game in just a few moves if you just walk past that whole section without entering the caves.

I've heard many people mention Sabre Wulf and Atic Atac but i've never completed those, might have 2 bits of the amulet but keep getting killed in SW, very frustrating !
