    I got the MG on my first, then left curly in the cabin like a moron, and then got the bad ending & restarted. Rip

    Same, except I left Curly in the core room because I got the Booster 0.8, and I knew I can load saves after the bad ending. :p

    This should be most people's first playthroughs, barring the machine gun part.

    I got the Spur on my first playthrough, not liking the MG and finding the Snake more of a hindrance; in the Labyrinth, I enjoyed the simplicity of the Polar Star and always felt that you could go back to the first cave at some point. I got the normal ending and spent several days trying to beat all 3 forms, life pot and everything. The undead core is one of those fights that's one of a kind when first played; you're forced to battle 3 monsters in the pursuit of the same health bar. It's an endurance man.

    hell with the machine gun was pretty much impossible for me. on one of the runs i DID try and get the best ending, i ended up getting the machine gun knowing about the spur and how to get it. i couldnt get to the heavy press. ironically, i DID beat hell with the snake, which was arguably a worse weapon, though my personal favorite.

    Yeah, I had your typical first playthrough. I got the bubbler, got the machine gun and turbocharger, probably missed a missile upgrade, got booster 0.8 leaving Curly to die, didn't get the nemesis, didn't get Chaco's lipstick or Curly's underwear, and didn't get the alien medal. I got the bad ending then immediately changed course and got the normal ending. That first playthrough was pretty epic. Hard to believe it was over seven years ago.

    My first playthough was in easy mode on the 3ds version. I first got the bad ending, then the normal ending. Took me to my third playthough to get the best ending.

    I already was spoilered on the whole secret ending stuff.
    ...Yet I still missed the Iron Bond, whoops!

    I feel.
    I don't think anybody actually discovered the best ending accidentally; it's almost impossible to accidentally come across it considering the logic you gotta follow...

    Bad ending with the Machine Gun, Booster v0.8, leaving Curly behind.

    When I learned that you could save Booster and Curly (and the Polar Star for a neat upgrade), I started over immediately.

    I played the DSi version first and I got the bad ending, but here's the kicker, I thought that was the only end. It took me a couple months to pick it back up and realize there was more to it lol
    Also I played around Christmas the first time through and was confused why Quote was brown
