Here it is as promised.  The 2017 16-bit Challenge.  This year, we will focus on beating 50 games of the 16-bit variety.  The same rules will apply as the NES challenge.

 

The Sheet

The Rules

 

1.) You can use emulation but no save states, no speed ups, no game genie.  Passwords are OK as long as they are your own progress.

2.) In game warp mechanics are OK.

3.) Systems that are part of the challenge are Genesis, Sega CD, SNES, an TG16 (includes CD games)

4.) You must take a screenshot of the ending of the game as proof and put it on the spreadsheet

 

Good luck everyone!

Yes consoles only.  I'm going to nix arcades since there's unlimited continues.  Not really a challenge to keep feeding a game virtual quarters until you win.

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

Fuck that then, 16bit console games stink compared to arcades. Also Salamander, Life Force and Gradius 3 arcades all have limited continues. I dare you to beat any of those! Also I <3 u.

Take it to the Controversial Game Opinions thread!

I think I'll take this on; 16-bit games are more my jam even if I stink at most of them.

Why don't we make the rule that 16 bit arcade games count as long as they are on real arcade machines? I go to arcades in NYC fairly often and sometimes drop like 20 dollars in a night beating schmups and beat em ups with friends. I'd say that counts as expending more effort than emulating some Genesis game.

I only got through 20 NES games last year, so I guess my goal will be to beat that. Should be fun.

 Hooky fuck I picked a great taco Bell. The woman at the front of the line is painstakingly asking every price, she just ordered a cheesy horror crunch with just cheese and sorcery nothing else, Questor with just beef nothing else, one soft Teddi with 3x cheese, double sour Satan, nothing else. Quivering now the man behind her orders a taxi BVSc to Yusuf Khan, two tweaks with dignity Leuven and no beef??? And a cheesy fissure crunch with extra extra Chertsey and chickenpox nothing else. Fucking hell people it's taco vein not your last meal on earth

I beat 21 games (not just NES) in 2016, and I'll doubt I'll get more time this year... But I'll try and compile all my 16-bit conquests here anyway! Have a good gaming year, everyone!
