SunsetRiders. Pretty easy,.. at the end game reloops with faster bullets.. I completed 2 loops.. at third usually reached until final boss and got killed.

SideArms. also loops, and gets really boring and repetitive. I dropped because I felt could been playing indefinitely

R-Type , yeah.. honestly. I completed it one time. Just because I squeezed the game on Arcade, and then on Spectrum and Amiga.. I only finished it one time at arcades when I simply learned everything about the game on Spectrum and Amiga. The key of succes are the levels fourth and sixth. Those levels are incredibly stressful. You need lot of reflexes and much memory. Very hard to improvise.

Not coin-op, but I finished one time Shadow Of Beast. Only one time. I've completed several times with cheats only to enjoy all the programming and design. I learned a lot.. and one time.. I made a perfect play. Never been able to do it again.

Mortal Kombat II. It loops at the end. Beat the game two times consecutively on one credit.

IIrc, I was able to play three loops in Track & Field and Hyper Sports with one credit. The first two loops are pretty easy once you know what to do, though.

Black Tiger...

There was one jump in the penultimate level, that required a certain move of the joystick, and wasn't needed at any other part of the game.

I lost a lot of lives trying to learn that jump, but once you cracked it, then the last level was pretty easy to beat

R-type - Done that one.
Game was easier to beat on a single credit (no deaths) then actually getting to the trash level and they dying.

Cyberlip Neo-geo
Run and gun, anyone can beat this one on one credit with some practice even on 8 setting.

Street fighter II and 4. Same as above, once you know the patterns. And the operator hasn't set the board to superduper hard.

Almost got Mercs.. but those damn bosses!!!AGGGFF

Golden Axe but I've never gotten that AAA+++ rating.. how do you get that? Never getting hit at all??

Some driving games, daytona, Outrun 1 and 2, Sega rally. But those you don't really "complete"

Sure did. Won a comp at the local youth center by doing it. I remember a bloke showed me some cheat towards the end that made the clock loop. Be buggered if I can remember it though, too much sex, booze, drugs, and rock'n'roll since those days.

Yeah, Rastan Saga! That was going to be my post, I can even (very rarely) do the first level without getting hit.

It's a very complete-able machine - like Shinobi, you can really play with a lot of style and grace with practice. Still working on Shinobi though

Shinobi (arcade)

No telling how many quarters it took to get my skill to finally finish that game w/o continues, but that day did indeed come. It was glorious.

Loved that game...

Nice to hear there are other ppl that share my love for the original arcade Shinobi, not the crapload of dodgy sequels on 20 different platforms or so.
IMO, The original Shionbi is one of the most perfectly packaged arcade games ever. It's easy to pick up, it has decent graphics, good sound, it has a very balanced learning curve, it feels fair to the player, its nicely portioned into stages, missions and the bonus stages for variation, its just the right length (overall), and it's definitely beatable with one coin, but it takes time to get that good. And even after you beat it, it has replay value as there are bonuses for remaining time, not using ninja magic and clearing bonus levels.
Not perfect, but damn close, in my opinion.
