Dose feels, Natsuru…
This is really underrated in my opinion.
Man, it’s been so long since I’ve started playing video games (about 20 years now,) but I don’t really remember “beating” many games. Most of the games I came up playing when I was younger were sports games and racing games. It’s not really a memorable event to beat one.
But I do remember beating Streets of Rage when I was still very young.

Side-scrolling fighter with a co-op mode. My older brother and I got to the last stage, and in an previously unprecedented decision for us, the final boss asked if we wanted to become his right hand man.
I think I said “Yes” (because pushover,) and my brother said “No.”
That triggered a fight where we had to fight each other until one of us lost all of our lives.
Due to a lack of skill, I spammed various moves and beat my brother.
Being beaten by your younger than 10-year old brother and being 4 years older than him…
There is no rage face that could describe his state…
But my parents were watching us play, so they tried to calm him down. And he did to an extent. They wanted me to keep playing, even though I felt bad for beating my brother.
So they cheered me on when the final boss asked again if I wanted to be his right hand man. Said no (because indecisive kid).
And so he proceeded to fight me. I beat him after a couple of continues.
Apparently, when you beat the game that way, you get the “bad” ending where “You (become) the boss! You are great!”
