Well, the first of the pile has fallen! Contra Hard Corps is finally beaten.

CHC requires a bit of an explanation as to why it is so important. I've had this game as long as I've had my genesis (94-95ish). And as a five year old, it is tough to decide which game is harder: the lion king or Contra Hard Corps. Now that I'm much older, I have come to see the answer: lion king.

Contra Hard Corps was more of a memory game than i had thought. After not playing this gem for years,  it all just fell into place...each bullet expertly dodged with precision and grace and extra many extra lives and continues.

i really wish i could find some sort of story on it though....not sure how a wolf with a robotic arm and a robot fit into contra storywise....then again, why am i asking about a story in contra???

I really enjoyed playing through it....and cant wait till i get the time to play through again to get a different ending..

so where does that leave me? oh wait 29 more >.>

Nice list, Neo.  I took the "safe" route this summer and only took on a few.  I've looked over your list and I must say, you have quite a few challenges ahead of you (the camera in Snake Eater, the length of Mercenaries), but at least you picked some great games.  Man, to experience Wind Waker again for the first time...
Interesting and diverse list. I've never played any of the Contra games past the NES, and it sounds like the story still doesn't make any sense. Super Mario World is so fantastic. Make sure you 100% that one.
Super Mario 100% is a must.  If you need any help with tips on how to 100% it let me know.  Just a hint any level that is in red on the map means it has multible ways of beating it and you must beat it all the ways to have it count towars the 100% of 96 levels
