I voted for "No, I've never played a single Contra game". Of course, it didn't help matters that I jumped the NES generation of gaming consoles.

No, not that one. I think I've played another Contra game. Was there one on the DS?
I like video games. They're pretty good.

Played? Yes. Beaten? No. The farthest I ever got was a fire level and there went the last of my lives. Awesome game, but it kicks my ass.

i played contra Hard Corps on the snes

on a physical console
with a friend

strange, i know

anyway, with two players, we had an extremely hard time getting pass the second stage end boss.
and the few times we did (and we played a LOT), we had too little lives to actually get past the first mini boss.
we even tried to get past the secret boss rush just before it.
we never managed it.

in the end, we played a lot but we never managed to get any endings

years later, i played virtually with save states
i managed to get all the endings by my lonesome

I have beaten it on the nes with the code, I also beat an arcade port of it with no codes.

Contra 3 is one of my favorite games of all time and I have beaten it every way you can.

Yes - this topic from a few years ago shows my progress from being really bad at it, to finally beating it without the 30 lives code:
