Re: Games That You've Beaten

I bought Shingen the Ruler (NES) for $2 at a secondhand store in the late 1990s, no instruction book. First-time players should expect to spend most of the game scrolling through numbers and moving troops across large battlefields at about 5 squares per round. My initial attempts ended in punishing defeat after a small number of turns. I remember thinking, "I must be the only person in the world playing this game right now." But in spite of the slow pace, I began to have fun playing Shingen and eventually developed a workable strategy that took me to victory. Having no instructions added an extra layer of difficulty to an already challenging game. Good times.

Hey, not so fast there. It says beaten, meaning instruction manual only: no tips, no walkthroughs, and definitely no cheats. Bonus points for not using the instructions. Make a titles-only list if that's your bent, add some detail if you like. You don't get much out in the real world for bringing down a video game; why not take a bow here where it does count, on the only board that really matters.

Here's the example:
