Games Chip Has Completed

I actually don't remember what the first video game was that I felt a solid sense of accomplishment when I finished it, but it probably fell sometime around the Castle Wolfenstein era. Prior to that, I completely failed to win NetHack, and a gazillion other games like it, OR I would finish a game and not think much of it. Mostly, though, games didn't really "end". Arcade games went on forever, or at least as forever as matters. Dragon's Lair may be a notable exception, although I never finished it in the arcade; only years later when a PC version came out and I wasn't at risk of losing weeks of begged/borrowed/stolen quarters and possibly not finishing anyway did I finally slay the dragon. Of note, even a few dozen attempts later I could never duplicate the feat.

Anyway, here's a list, definitely incomplete, of games I've finished. Mostly I'm doing this to keep track of the ones I OWN that I haven't finished, so that I can motivate myself to make the most of my video game investment, but it's also indirectly a good list of my all-time favorites.
