The first game I actually remember completing was either Silver (1999) or Outlaws (1997). Back then, I didn't have a large library of games, so I would tend to finish a game before moving onto the next. I also mainly played demos, as I didnt have the full games (I still have a couple of CD Gamer demos from 98-99 in my collection), and unless it was my Birthday or Christmas, there was no way of me getting any new games.

Zork, I think, sometime in the mid 80s. And ditto @Dan - for the same reason, it wasn't until around 2000 that I stopped completing every game I owned. These days, moving onto something else when I get stuck has almost become the rule, rather than the exception.

What I think I'm saying is, I'm not hardcore any more 😕.

The first game I can remember playing from start to finish is Pandemonium! on PlayStation. It's all a little fuzzy, but I recall winding levels, plenty of platforming, and a man in a skin-tight jester's outfit that still haunts me to this day.

I'll give a shout out to Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, as well. I can't remember if I ever finished it, but I sure remember trying to for many, many hours.

As a kid I suppose I knew games had endings - but it took me a while before I ever saw a "you're done, go do something else" screen. I don't believe I finished any of the first games I had on my first PC. Doom II for example, scared me with some mid-game demons and every time I saw barons of hell I noped out. I was apparently very easy to stress as a kid, duh.

When I think about the questions, hm.... it's tough actually. I had a lot of demos from computer magazine that came together with a CD (and then later, a DVD or two!) so I don't count finishing these. Maybe Fallout 2? I remember the feeling of awe at the destruction of oil rig, the bitter-sweet feeling of finishing an amazing journey across the wastelands. It was also the game that "taught" me a lot of English - yup I had a dictionary on the desk next to me so I could translate some of the dialogues and descriptions. I remember being weirded out by "ordinary" and "nothing out of ordinary" phrases A LOT by some reason.
 
I can't remember exactly the first game i completed but i can remember it was on the Amiga. Its a toss up between dragon ninja, Robocop or z-out (there are others but i think those were the ones that i remember earliest). How did i beat these games when i was 7 years old? Well, i cheated my balls off. it was the only way i could beat most of the games on the Amiga at the time. As i got older i did beat games legitimately and i took great pride beating the more terrible ones as i was the only one skilled/stupid enough to do it in my household. Like Arnie or the Amiga edition of alien storm or midnight resistance. Partly because i was obligated to beat those games as i bought them as my birthday present in different years. looking back i regret pestering my mum into buying them.

The first game i ever completed had to be Ratchet and Clank: Deadlocked. Playing it on the PS2, i really liked the arena style, battling up the leaderboard and completing challenges, and leveling up weapons. The final bosses were great, satisfying, and the ending was nice.

The first game I remember finishing was the original Medal of Honor for the playstation 1 with my dad! I don't remember may hard details because I would have been like 2 or 3 years old.
