I left booster
I got the machine gun
I let Curly die
I had, like, 45 max health or something like that
I had no idea the whimsical star or the spur existed
I think i got the nemesis, i'm not sure (I've always loved swords, so i doubt i would've traded it away as an eight-year old)
I never found at least half of the missile tanks
And I got the normal ending
Oh yeah, and i drowned in Start point
I'm pretty sure 90% of peoples first playthroughs go like that, assuming they're blind. The only spoilers I had was that I knew who ballos was, knew you had to rescue curly from drowning, uhhh, that you weren't supposed to talk to booster, but I didn't know how you saved curly. so I didn't.

also, how do you drown in start point? I know you can but like..how..

I was still getting used to using a keyboard for Cave Story. My introduction was the Wii Ware port, so i was not used to controlling CS without a wiimote

Now here is something interesting, so my introduction was the DSiWare port (rip DSiWare), and when I finally played vanilla and CS+, it all felt so much easier playing with a keyboard than it was with the button panel on a 3DS.

I actually like the buttons on the 3ds version better tbh. maybe its cause I always knew how to play games on a controller & got used to it like that. actually I rarely use a pc to game, except for the 800 hours I spent on pc terraria in total a while back.

Unfortunately same for me on that last part. I like trying different things on save files.

It probably took me longer to get through it than it should have, but I ended up getting the normal ending.

Speaking of the normal ending, that was depressing as fuck.

I got the machine gun+booster 2.0, (Because I thought Booster should take care of himself, I wasn't using a walkthrough Lol:awesomeface::awesomeface:) learned to machine boost by accident, and beat the Doctor, Misery, and Core in my first try.

No, I didn't. I didn't know to go into the prefab building.
Honestly i think most people wouldn't even get the normal ending going blind. Or at least for me. I didn't even know the outer wall was as big as it was.

The first time I played Cave Story, I got stuck on Mimiga Village. I never went to the shack. 3 years later, still haven't beaten it. I'm now in the Sand Zone.
Edit :I'm now in Labyrinth W.

What kept you from going to the shack though?

I first played it on my Lakka PC in Feburay of 2018 and I got stuck on Monster X. 6 months later I bought CS+ for Switch and me and my friend beat it on easy co-op from 4:30pm-2:30am. I don't know if it was the sleep deprivation but I cried for 20 minutes when Curly died. Edit: we listened to the Ridiculon ST the entire time.

I can hardly remember despite only having first played Cave Story in January of 2016 (short term memory and all) but i'm pretty sure i did the Neutral Ending.

Not gonna lie i thought you'd get the normal/best ending by something happening while you fly away. I didn't really research how to get the best or even normal ending. All i knew was that you had to not let booster die by not checking him.
