Anyone ever play Crystalis for NES? I started playing it again, it's so awesome. I've never beaten it, so now I'm going to

I just played it for the first time a few years ago. Excellent game.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

Warriors Orochi 3, NBA 2K12, Castlevania HD, Fallout: New Vegas, and (slowly) Epic Mickey.

Edit: And, of course, Lords of Shadow. Just trying to beat it.
Defeating evil: Apparently easy.
Defeating the Lord of Darkness with a whip and some water: Damn.

If you can get past its super cutesy demeanor, Mega Man Powered Up is friggin' amazing. As good as MHX is, Powered Up does a lot more stuff that's different from the source material.

YES! Proto Strike! I loved the voices and personalities of the Robot Masters. Amazing game with a ton of replayability!

Just started Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Ugh. I really wanted to see where the storyline went on this one, but I don't think I gave myself enough time since playing Brotherhood. Having a hard time staying interested.

Get the DLC pack. "The Disappearance of DaVinci".
That has a neat story thing.
By the way, if you want what's truly at the end of Revelation, you have to watch the "Assassin's Creed: Embers" short movie.

It shows the final events of Ezio's life.

For a long time I have been hopelessly hooked on that confounded WoW, with a few helpings of handheld Metroid and Castlevania on the sides.

Then Blizzard had the Diablo 3 open beta stress test, and I enjoyed it.

THEN Runic had THEIR Torchlight 2 open beta...and I was flat-out BOWLED OVER.

Not trying to start a war here, but IMHO D3 has a very strong competitor there, with some of the old Diablo blood (AND musician Matt Uelmen) behind the development! :D

So as I wait impatiently for T2 to release and my preorder to activate, I've been enjoying the first Torchlight all over again. :)

My SO swears by Torchlight, I'd really like to preorder but not sure that my increasingly ancient PC could do either the first or part 2 justice, just depends on how well it's optimized. What I can and can't run well is a bit erratic. I should have a bit of money in a few weeks, maybe invest in a better fan and graphics card.

Much like WoW, Runic made Torchlight to work across a wide spectrum of systems, even going as far as integrating a netbook mode (no sure if TL2 will have that yet). It works quite well on my '07 desktop running Linux and Wine, and runs...eh, adequately on my old clunker of an '05 XP laptop.

Take the T1 demo for a spin and see if it gets you. :)

I'm not sure if that pic is for or anti AMD (I use ATI which is technically AMD, right?).
EDIT:

This is what I'm playing today, teehee.

What you mean like ever? I think it's just that that would be a very long list for some people. Those of us who haven't beaten as many games would probably feel less experienced, and those who have beaten the most would probably feel like they were bragging. Still, a good place to keep track of this sort of thing is http://www.backloggery.com/ if you're interested.

No. Games that one might have recently beaten like those four game I beat were very recent like in a months time not games over time like years. For instance I feel like I might beat Tales of vesperia real soon in a week or so then I'll post it here.

I recently got all 70 achievements in Resident Evil 5. You have no idea how hard I cheered when I finally completed the game.
I recently beat (again) the campaign of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
I beat the story mode to Dynasty Warriors 7, also.
Right now I'm working on getting the last two achievements I need for Dynasty Warriors 6.
Currently Playing: Resident Evil 2 [N64]
Games Beaten This Year (2020): 20 Games
