When I first started collecting games for older consoles in a serious manner and came to the decision that I'd "get a full set," this was in the early 2000s. My young, optimistically naive self always had it in my mind that I would have that done in the matter of a year or two and then I'd "beat them all" and then simply move onto the SNES and repeat the process. The harsh reality quickly set in that this wasn't a feasible goal, but the idea never left my mind. In 2011, I was still hunting for NES carts to complete my set and had only dabbled in a small chunk of the library, which were both far cries from my original intentions, but that "beat them all" concept was still gnawing at me. So finally in October 2011, I decided to start keeping track of my journey for my personal posterity. I kept a google doc and recorded each game as I completed them. I started off with a 100 NES games in 100 days challenge to get the momentum really amped up. This is a lot easier than it may sound when you have the entire library to choose from. I could knock out games I was immensely familiar with in a single day and do some cursory research or pick games from genres I was comfortable with. I had so much fun with those first 100 games, it was honestly one of the most fun gaming experiences I've ever had.

This year has been a good year for me in regards to making progress on beating my NES library. In January and February, I was able to pump out some serious completion numbers. For the first couple weeks of March, I was able to tackle a few games from my sublist of games that I anticipated to be the hardest ones for me to complete. Before all this COVID-19 stuff, I planned to continue putting time into these challenging titles specifically. Things are stressful enough at the moment, so I decided to change my tactics and go with some comfort food instead. My stress reducer of choice was the original Final Fantasy. Now I've beaten this game before, but not before I started keeping records and recording my plays.

Modern gaming has many advantages and disadvantages depending on your outlook. Many of the things that I don't care for in the modern arena are tied closely to things that really don't interest me all that much anyway so I don't fret too much about them. I'm not a big indie guy so the fact that most indie games are digital only doesn't typically bother me. I can play Dark Souls from start to finish without messing around with the online mutliplayer aspects which don't excite me. Since I don't have a particular fondness for MMO style games persistent online worlds and the joys that accompany them are a non-issue for me.

There is one particular genre that I love and have grown up with my whole life that I no longer play these days. The advances of modern gaming have pushed me completely out of Fighting games and I didn't realize until recently how sad that makes me.

As I often do I was playing my NES a few days ago. The game of the day was The Legend of Kage. If you're not familiar, it's an arcade port in which you control a ninja running through some scrolling stages battling other ninjas and wizards to save a princess. All of that sounds great, but in reality it's a pretty bad game. The controls are not up to the standards of the time, it looks pretty generic, the sound is awful, enemy spawns are seemingly random, lots of cheap deaths, and there is no real depth to the game beyond the typical arcade fair of "play until you die". My wife watched for a few minutes and saw me reset the first level a dozen times as I just tried to learn how the game operated and made a comment that went something this "I'm frustrated just watching you play. I don't understand how you can find enjoyment in this." I've often thought there is some value in a person getting outside their comfort zone even in their hobbies, so I'm going to try and finally put that into words here.

To get straight to the point, we did not make our goal of beating every North American licensed NES game in the year 2019. Is that a disappointing outcome? Heck no! We ended up conquering 514 of the 669 game list in a single year. We had 30 members participate throughout the year! Some of which I havn't really had a good opportunity to interact with before and it gave me a chance to get to know them better. Beyond those 30 players we had several other members offer advice and support and simply cheer us on. Even though we fell short at the end we had an incredible time exploring new worlds, gritting our teeth over challenging areas, mashing buttons faster than ever before and most importantly, sharing our accomplishments with our peers.

It was quite heartwarming to see people scratch games off their backlog, overcome childhood hurtles and discover new favorites. Every game is not a winner, but I do feel there is something valuable to learn even from playing a stinker. I hope that every player feels that the time they invested in this community challenge was as worthwhile as I did. Whether you joined us for 1 game or 100 I'm incredibly thankful for your participation.

Here we are everyone. The final month of 2019. It's fairly obvious at this point that we will not reach the goal of beating the entire licensed NES library in 2019, but we gave it a valiant effort and have put a monstrous dent into it. However, I and a few others still plan to keep taking down NES games this month to see how close we can get. Please join us if you want to mess around in the weeds of what's left of the Nintendo Entertainment System library.

With the year closing in all around us we've had a slight surge of renewed interest in the NES Challenge with a few members putting in some last minute efforts, come old players reappearing and a couple new names added to the scoreboard. We've still got a ways to go, but as of this writing we have collectively destroyed 492 game for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 2019.......which is pretty impressive, but still short of our goal of the entire North American licensed library. Click that link above and take a look at our remaining list of games and jump in and lend a hand. Still a surprising amount of variety to play so no excuses in these last two months!!!

With the year rapidly closing in on us we need all the help we can get! The list of remaining games may be smaller than ever, but boy is it dense. We need all sports stars, adventurers, action heroes, pilots, drivers, puzzle masters, strategic geniuses, arcade wizards and cartoon characters on hand to beat the remainder of the NES library.

Check out the list of remaining titles or even just pop in the thread to share tips or encourage our players to keep on going. With everybody banding together we can accomplish this lofty goal!

4 months left in the year and we are still going strong! 461 games beaten through January to the end of August 2019. That means we've got 208 titles left to beat in the next 4 months. With the community working together that's definitely an achievable number. We have taken down pretty much all the classic games at this point, but there are still a lot of great games, a lot of short games, a lot of easy games and of course several big challenges. If you're up for taking on a time consuming RPG or sports title, a much neglected Strategy game, maybe an largely ignored genre like a flight sim or even a hard as nails shmup we'd love to have you join our quest to beat the entire NES library in 2019.

We are back and stronger than ever!! After an extremely slow May I was having my doubts about our progress in this challenge. But after a crazy productive June and July we are back on track to make this challenge a reality!! As of July 31st we've collectively beaten 432 NES games which leaves us with an achievable 237 games to beat in the final 5 months of the year. With our selection of games dwindling we are getting into the weird, the bad, the ugly, the seedy underbelly of the NES. If you really want to deep dive into this amazing library now is a great time to join us in the NES Challenge.

With May being our slowest month to date thing's where not looking good for us to pass the halfway mark of the NES library by the halfway mark for the year. But with some very impressive June participation from several members we are more than 30 titles past the 50% mark of the entire licensed NES library! Starting July off with an impressive 370 NES games beaten by our own community members since January 1st 2019.

Join us for July as we press forward to our next milestone!

For the last couple months even cutting our community goal drastically we've continually fallen short of our monthly targets. So this month, and possible just going forward, I'm scrapping the community goal to hit a certain number of games. I was really hoping to have at least half the library done by now (and we are extremely close to doing so) to give use some extra wiggle room later in the year, but we will persevere regardless.

Participation has dropped off massively in the last 2 months and we could still use all the help we can get. So please take a look at the list of remaining games and join in if you're able to. Still lots of great titles that haven't been attempted yet as well as many hidden gems to yet be uncovered!
