Games Chip Has Played

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. Asteroids is the most vivid memory I have, having once skipped church to play for hours and hours on a Sunday... that game would NOT end. 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, or at least played very thoroughly. 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.
