Great Accomplishments in Gaming: get your brag on

Recommended Posts

All I can get is a crappy black and white choppy mess, seems like I would need better video capture software.

I have found Debut to be pretty exceptional, especially for a free download, although it can be a resource hog if you're struggling on that end.

I dunno if this is considered on topic or not, but has anyone heard of the Tim Tang Test?

I got through the first 50 levels a few years ago. Some of them have changed since, and I haven't given it another shot, but it's an excellent, mind-bending devourer of time.

Just remembered another team fortress 2 one. During a payload map was fighting another hunstman sniper in an adjacent room. We both popped around the corner at the same time and fired - causing our arrows to collide in mid air and fall to the ground. I got him right after that. This is one I actually DO have on video.

Sounds like you were using the machinegun to stay airborne here - which means you weren't actually fighting the final final boss. Picky, I know, but I thought I'd point it out :tomatoface:

Big giant face-sphere of death? Or was there an even worse fate than Hell that I somehow missed. Because I'm not going back to find out. I don't know how I was so patient in my youth, but I can't even fathom repeating that feat a second time.

- Played and done alright in a lot of PC FPS games (some old videos, as Nutritious mentioned)

- Am still a generally nice person and "retro gamer" despite having dabbled with the dark arts above :)

- Been playing quite a bit of NEStalgia this year and me and my guild have earned a little respect for doing relatively difficult PvE stuff (beating hard bosses often with small and/or unusual party compositions etc., more videos), also won a PvP tournament for the first time this weekend yay

I'm not certain on all of my gaming feats, which most of them probably are not the greatest. But I do remember the most fun I've had gameing and I call it a feat.

I got two other friends and we got 3 TV's together in one room. We all put in a Megaman X and all three of us did megaman X 1-6 in one sitting. It was a colaboration effort though. We didn't each beat MMX 1-6, we all helped each other out. It was an absolute blast.

Another thing I pride myself on which, yet again, isn't super impressive, is that I have beat all Metal Gear Solids with no kill runs. Two of them I did no kill run first thing.

Oh jesus. I'd never heard of NEStalgia before. I clicked the link and almost shit my pants. I think that game caters to every possible addiction mechanism that exists within me. I dare not play it. The consequences would never be the same.

Aaaand relevant to the thread: I beat level 20 again in Dr. Mario just now, fucked up in level 21 after setting myself up to win, threw the controller at the NES like the mature grow'd-ass man that I am, and the level just kinda reset and allowed me to try it again. And I beat it. I love the NES.

Things I'm most proud of:

-beating sephiroth in kingdom hearts I (seriously epic boss fight, too bad in KH2 he was a pushover)

-finishing ninja gaiden I/II (xbox) on the hardest difficulty

-getting through all halo game campaigns on legendary with a friend (halo reach = OMGWTFHAX)

Things I'm not so proud of:

-failing the tutorial mission of MSG2

-losing first time duel in red dead redemption to some nobody

-getting raped by Lu Bu in every dynasty warriors so hard every time

-never legitimately beating a mario game...

Funny, I never could beat him in KH2 :(

I got the sense it was very systematic but I never took the time to get it down.

The system was, "spam Trinity Limit"

You'll always be a prototype til you beat one.

Bust out your NES and do yourself a favor :<

Currently I'm working on 100%'ing Super Meat Boy. When I do that, that'll be my biggest accomplishment.

It's hard to pick a #1 accomplishment, but when I was about 7-8 or so, I beat Operation Neptune, the entire game, without ever getting hurt or firing a single shot. (maybe I got hurt once or twice... it's been a long time.)

It was pretty hard on single player, but I actually thought Halo 3 was harder than Reach.

I've beaten Cod 4, WaW, MW2 and 3 and Black Ops on Veteran difficulty. WAAAY harder than you might think if you've never played the campaign modes. It's seriously brutal at times.

Beat Master Mode in Super Monkey Ball. My friend and I were trying to figure out how many people even reached Master Mode in this game worldwide, since the game wasn't that popular and is pretty unforgiving even when you're good at it.

Uh...

I mean, I beat Mario Kart Double Dash literally over 5 times.

I'm a master at Mario Kart. I beat Mario Kart Wii really quickly, but I never went back to beat it again because I wasn't a ginormous fan of it. It was great, but Double Dash is the best. I think I beat Mario Kart 64 as well. Ah, my childhood... I grew up with the 64 and GCN.

Super Mario Kart was nearly impossible for me. I only played it for old school gaming reasons and just for the fact it was cool to play it. It was really hard for me and my friends, though, lol.

I never was able to do Mario Kart 7. The controls always bothered me. They were too different, and I had a hard time handling the racers. I nearly beat it, though.

Losing count of how many times i beat FFVII. I'm pretty sure i just started number 11 today. (Square having me as lead creative director, or some other bs title, for the FFVII remake? I can recite the entire game's dialogue by heart...almost)

I HATED Double Dash. The item frequencies were so messed up in Double Dash, you could perform near flawlessly or flawlessly in 150cc and get screwed by an assault of lightning/blue shells. I remember one race I was so far ahead on Toad's Highway that at the end I got hit by 3 blue shells in a row on the final stretch and almost lost. I was about to go ballistic if I lost that race.

Lol, that happens in ALL Mario Kart games. I'm a master at Double Dash. That's the one I'm best at, honestly.

I beat Ninja Gaiden 1-3 after a 6-hour marathon. I had to use an emulator, because it was nearly impossible to play and beat it on the NES. I came pretty close when I was a kid, but I just couldn't pull it off.

100% on DKCR. Fuck that game, I'm never playing it again!

Probably the nerdiest thing I have ever done in a video game was memorize the step chart to So Deep on Heavy and then played it on Stealth (arrows are completely hidden) in an arcade. Back when DDR was actually popular.

I can beat Battletoads on the NES without using any continues or mega warps. I can beat

and
. I can also clear Clinger Winger in one attempt but I don't have video of that at present.

Not sure how great an accomplishment it really is but I can beat all eight Robot Masters in Mega Man 9 with just the Mega Buster.

I found all the Chocograph treasures in Final Fantasy IX without using a guide of any kind.

I can beat the level 130 Feral Chaos at the end of Dissidia duodecim's story mode with a

party
.
