    Finding a girlfriend who tolerates (mostly) my video game collection. THAT would be my greatest videogame accomplishment! She's also been know to actually play a game or two (her current favorites are Katamari Damacy, Final Fantasy X-2 and Mario Kart - Double Dash).

    For me along the same lines. When XBL started up, my roommate and I were ranked under the top 50 for a while in both Mech Assault and Unreal Tournament, until they restarted the leader board due to a few discovered glitches.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I'm new here, and wanted to find out some of people's best/favourite gaming accomplishments. And so I'm resurrecting this old thread rather than starting a brand new one.

    My best ones:
    Finished Contra on 3 lives.
    Finished all four Dragon Warriors for the NES from the start in one calendar year.
    Rolled the counter over to 0 on Asteroids (Atari)
    Rolled the counter over to 0 on Midnight Magic (Atari)
    Finished Super Metroid at 100% in 1:42
    Finished Super Mario 3 without losing a life, without warping, and fighting all hammer bros, levels, and mini-castles - I'd say that would be my best since it seems like the hardest to do.

    Nice, I haven't gotten close to that time, but I've beaten all goldeneye levels on all difficulties, and gotten all the cheats twice on different carts.

    Soloed halo on legendary.

    Got 5k points on Odyssey 2: PT Barnum's Acrobats.

Then I even went for all the rank weapons ( which I got all ) I think I had all the items in the game that was super duper rare. Only a few off the side.

    I never understood how this is a special victory. I'm no Halo nut and I've only played it but a few dozen times at other peoples houses. Everyone I know that does own the game have beaten it with pure ease and found it a joke. Same goes with Halo 2, which leaves me to wondering if Halo 3 is supposed to be hard.

    I flipped the score on Atari 2600 Defender when I was nine or ten. It was on one of the easier difficulty settings, but it took a long time and I thought it was cool at the time. I've always sucked at the arcade Defender.

    Same here. I've never seen why GTA is so popular, anyway.

    This may not seem like much, but beating Crazy Taxi 2's final challenge is a major accomplishment for me. You have to drop off 30 customers to any destination on the Small Apple course. You get to choose the route. What makes this extremely hard is the fact that they only give you 5-6 minutes to do this, and, if you don't plan your route ahead of time, you'll end up failing the mission. Add to the fact that the course is curvy, twisty, and packed with traffic (not to mention the arrow sometimes messes up), and this makes it one of the hardest challenges in Crazy Taxi. Passing this lets you have the ability to use the Crazy Taxi 1 drivers on any course, which is a great bonus for having to sit through this insanely hard challenge.

    -Getting all of the characters on Super Smash Bros. Melee on the first day I got the game.

    -Finally beating Sonic 2's final boss normally, without cheats. (I finally figured out his pattern and I easily beat it.)

    Maybe if you played it you would. Or maybe you wouldn't. We'll never know unless you play it.

    Speaking of R-Type, I started playing R-Type III a couple weeks ago and it took me about 3 hours of solid play before I managed to beat the first level. I guess I'll call that my most amazing game accomplishment since I cna't think of anything better. It is pretty amazing, you have to admit.

    I beat Time Soldiers for SMS without using the 2P continue cheat. That's probably been done by many.

    Also making a hole in one on a par 5 in Valora Valley Golf for Saturn. If anyone else here has done that I'd be surprised.

    I also made a hole in one in real life but on a par 3. Which is better? I really can't say...

    Beat FFVII in under 24 hours
    Harking back to the first guy's post, I beat disc 1 of FFIX in 7 hours first time through. Kinda wish I hadn't, now...

    Beat Sonic 3 in under an hour without losing a life- not groundbreaking but I'm kinda proud of it.
    -First 3 levels of Sonic Spinball without losing a life (which is a LOT harder than it sounds).
    Managed to get into the top 100 worldwide at MSR.
    130 emblems on Sonic Adventure DC
    150 stars on Mario 64 DS

    That's about it really.

    Does actually beating Tower of Druaga count? Sure, I didn't do it in one credit, but that game is so frustratingly difficult I nearly lost the will to live. Also a lesser achievement, but beating Splatterhouse 2 was a challenge, and I genuinely believed that I'd never see the end credits.

    Aside from that, beating Metal Slug 1 on 1 continue, and then later 1 life, beating Earthworm Jim on one life, getting King of Insanity ranking on Insane Mode in Point Blank 2, and beating Donkey Kong Country without any bonus barrells in 49 minutes.

    Since GTA is supposed to be a "sandbox" type of game, I do know what the appeal is; however, I prefer to play that style in a fantasy game such as Morrowind or Oblivion and not run around in a modern setting carjacking, mugging, etc.
