First Nintendo game you ever managed to beat?

Come to think of it I never beat Donkey Kong 64.


Now I'm going to have to go back and do it.

It was literally the first game I'd ever played that had an overworld of that kind, where you can just kind of go wherever you want. I would spend hours just floating around

Kirby games strike me as an excellent place to start for little kids. They're fairly challenging if you stay on the ground and try to speed through, but if you ever get into a bind it's really easy to puff up and float away from danger in most levels. I recall bobbing along the top of the screen most of the first time I played the NES game, and I'm pretty sure I managed to beat it, too.

Agree with you about Kirby games having perfect level of difficulty... except for the one on GBA, I think that it's called Kirby and the Amazing Mirror.
I started playing it as an adult person and to this day haven't managed to beat... I ALWAYS get lost in all those mirror teleports and end up circling back and forward instead of finding a new level. This game drives me crazy!

Super Mario Bros. Not exactly the most unique answer, but it came with my NES and I didn't get really any other games for a while. Still love it to this day. It started my love of platformers.

The first games I got in my NES were Metroid and Adventure Island... Quite hard to beat games. So the first time I beat a NES game, was when I got SMB1, haha, like 2 years later.

The first game that I beat was Super Mario World for SNES. I still play it even though I beat it. It's a fun game. I wish there were more like it. It's one of my favorite games.

My first completed game had me celebrating so much I got yelled at for being too loud! I'd finally finished with the last dungeon of Super Mario 3. I was so overjoyed, I was excited for days! Games were so innocent then. I actually felt an achievement completing them. Not like most of the games today. That's one of the reasons I really love retro games.

Yep , I totally agree. One of the many good things of retro games is the rewarding feeling when you beat them. No save game in most cases, hard as hell, and some minimalist ending that told you "hey, you're awesome for finishing the game. Go brag about it".
