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.
Yeah, an even if you do get the ring, the dragon still sees you an fries you anyway...avoid goblins caves!! :lol:

I found Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse very easy to beat, even on hard.

Outrun 2006 - PC, Arcade. Never played the PS2 or Xbox versions but most likely they are just as easy to complete.

Pacmania - Amiga

Soul Calibur- Dreamcast.

Final Blow - Amiga.

These can be completed over 2-3 days, although can also be done in a day depending how much time you put in that day & length of the game.

Sueprfrog - Amiga.

Power Stone - Dreamcast.

Shenmue - Dreamcast.

Tetris - Gameboy. A couple of hours or so on the hardest level and you've completed the game. Well for me anyway.
I can clock Soul Calibur in about 10 mins on a bad day.

If it takes you 2-3 days, I'm assuming you have set the number of rounds to about 200 each :wink:

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!
Yeah, that's why you very rarely see him (Eddy Gordo) used in competition play, as he's too easy to read and counter against.

Oh, and in reference to the last comment. There be even more pain when they hit they ground!

I'm currently working thru Lego Star Wars on the Wii - the Complete Sage. Not too challenging (OK, it's not a retro game. Butr Star Wars is kinda Retro. And Lego is). Good fun too.

Wonderboy 3 - Dragons' Trap is good fun, wuite lengthy, but not too tasking, and you've got saves via passwords.

Neverending Story 128 - Speccy. Another game thats just like working your way through a book (spooky - it IS, in so many ways!)

I seem to remember completing Flashback on expert mode so many times, having to played it on the Acorn. Became incredibly easy after that.

Buster Busts Loose is easy enough and there are some nice themed levels to play through. Also, most Kirby games are easy enough also and I would suggest Kirby's Fun Pak because not only is it easy but the abilities you acquire through copying are some of the most powerful in the series, making the plowing through of the levels feel really good.

Despite being tough to start out with, Wizball on the C64 was fairly easy to complete once you had the anti-grav upgrades. Level 7 was quite tough, with bullets a-plenty and not much ground to hide under, but usually by that time you'd racked up a few lives.

Always found it endlessly replayable, though.
