    1. Samurai Shodown (2019) (Xbox One) 01/03
    2. TMNT: Tournament Fighters (Genesis) 01/05
    3. Guitar Hero 3 (Xbox 360) 01/09
    4. Castlevania (NES) 01/14

    For Samurai Shodown, I considered it "beat" since that was the day I finished the story mode with all characters, unlocked everything, and obtained every achievement. Fantastic game but the load times are brutal, even on a Series X. Load times on regular Xbox One were to the point I couldn't even stand to play it. Save scummed my way through Genesis Tournament Fighters on hardest difficulty to fight the final boss and get that achievement on the Cowabunga Collection... horrible game, as bad or worse than some pre-SFII fighters.

    Went through Guitar Hero 3 on easy career since the achievements don't stack for harder difficulties. Played through Castlevania on the Anniversary Collection. Thank goodness for save states, as I would have never made it otherwise. I never owned this one back in the day and the farthest I think I had made it before was the Frankenstein boss.

    I have been on a 360 racing kick of late. So far in 2023 I have beat Dirt 3, and Dirt 2. I have Dirt, Grid, and Grid 2 ready and waiting next.

    5. Mortal Kombat Komplete Collection (PS3) 01/18
    6. Doom (Xbox 360) 01/25

    Finished the story mode in MK, just picked this up in December for PS3 even though I've had the 360 version since launch. It was only $10, which it was worth to check Kratos out.

    360 doom is the version of Ultimate Doom for Live Arcade. I had played through the newer Xbox One release of this a few months ago and decided to go through the 360 version since it was fresh on my mind. My original save game was dated November of 2012... so it took me 10 years to finish this I always considered this a better port than the newer rerelease being that it had online co-op and deathmatch, but after revisiting it I've definitely changed my mind. The button layout is horrible and the turning speed is slow as molasses.

    1. SWAT Police (Arcade via MAME) 2/2

    This isn't what I was expecting to be my first game beaten in 2023, but I'm a fan of the NES version of Cabal, and whenever my husband comes across a shooting gallery-style game similar to that in MAME, he wants me to give it a try (considering there aren't a ton of games like Cabal, as far as I know). So I played through this Korean game last night. It's nothing to brag about, though. I used an absurd amount of credits. This game is a real quarter-muncher, or won-muncher, I guess. There's nothing to hide behind like in Cabal, and the enemies and bullets keep swarming the screen. I can't even imagine the kind of obsessive-compulsive playing it would take to 1CC this game. Anyway, it wasn't bad, but it's got nothing on Cabal either. Granted, I can't recall if I've ever played the arcade original of Cabal, so maybe that's super cheap too, for all I know. This is why I often prefer home ports of arcade games. Even if the aesthetics take a hit, it's worth that downgrade if the difficulty gets better balanced, making the fun factor go way up.

    A few years ago I came across this on one of those cheapo multi-game arcade boards I'd bought. I'd never heard of it before and was pleasantly surprised. I'm a fan of crosshair style shooters as well, even a mediocre title like this is a welcomed entry in such a niche genre. That board I played it on was a bit crap but I'm glad it introduced it to me, along with Riot and Spinal Breakers.
