Okay, i want to make a game system, that uses NO CPU or MCU of any kind. I want it to be strictly logic only.

What i'm wanting to do, is have some way of "counting" up, and when the number reaches a certain value, i want an LED to turn on.

Basically, i don't know how to "Hold" a value for my (MCUless) game system.

Have you considered something like a 4017 decade counter? This link gives a short description of that device, plus information about other 4000 series CMOS Logic ICs.
