Games that aren't too hard to complete!

What common(ish) games are reasonably easy to complete. Many retro games are notoriously difficult and I am quick to anger when I can't get off the first level of something. I have considered the possiblilty I'm just cr@p at games but I also believe some of you are in the same boat. Mario 64 is a good example for me where you can play and reach 70 stars with reasonable effort where there is still challenge for the pros to aim for all 120.
Oh yeah, R-type, I hate you!

I class myself as a very poor gamer, so any game that I can complete must be pretty easy.

Therefore;

Oddworld: Abes Oddyssey on PS1
Star Wars Lego (any of them on any system)
Target Renegade on Speccy

...and thats about it.

Oh and with R-Type, I can regularly get to level 4 on 1 life, but have never completed level 4 :( .

any master system game...i havn't found one i can't beat!
but alex kid in mirical world is the easiest game in the world...1st time i played it @ 12yrs old i finnished it without losing a life.....last month i played it again for the 1st time in 17 years..... and completed it without losing a life!

master system games never had much gameplay to them either..most of the later games being dumbed down mega drive games!

Street Fighter

All Sonics (apart from Sonic CD) :lol:

I have just started getting aquainted with Super Mario Allstars - I hope that these don't get frustrating near the end.

Mario All Stars are quite easy, the only one I've yet to complete is the first game.

I'd suggest Namco's Ace Combat series as relatively easy too. Especially the first one. I walked it in an afternoon.

Metal Gear Solid 2 is relatively straightforward, just takes a while.

Attach the force to the rear of the R9 - that's the key to that stage.

I can't complete most of the ones named :(

The only Sonics I've ever completed are Chaos and Aventure.

Bruce Lee, especially on the Speccy and very easy to amass loads of lives on, too.

Quackshot on Megadrive is pretty easy to get through...as is World of Illusion.

i tend to find that most games with password saves are easy enough to get through over time :)

Well that cant be entirely true as the SMS came out 3 years befor the SMS. But it's true in its later life it was seen more as a kids console and so did get some dumbed down MD releases.

I wouldnt agree that Alex Kidd in Miracle World is easy. Lost Stars and Shinobi World are far easyer.

There are plenty of tough SMS games, perhaps you just happend to have owned some of the easyer ones. Try Terminator, Indiana Jones, Cloud Master (Euro not US), The Ninja and Power Strike. All of thease present a tough challenge imo.

Edit* sorry.. this was a thread about easy games :roll: :wink:

Yeah, one of the few 8-bit games I completed no problem, although the electrically charged floors were a pain.
The Goonies was another 8-bit game I completed but the puzzles on that took me ages to complete. Completing Ocarina of Time (in particular the Water Temple before I had access to the Internet to help me!) was bloody tough.

Mickey Mouse Magical Adventure on the Snes, fairly easy to complete, but still very fun, and great to look at it.

Lylat Wars is ridiculously easy. I rented it and finished it on my first go. Glad I didn't buy it!

PS2/PC/GC/Xbox Conan is easy to finish.
