#2 beat kingdom hearts II like 5 times. the first time was in less than a week. i know not that amazing but im happy. kingdom hearts freek
#3 winning every match in dead or alive when the controller right button didnt work. adds so many handicaps. couldnt even move forward.

#1 broke all of my xbox controllers while playing Dead or Alive and tetris. spent alot of money getting more
#2 sold game stop almost 50 games and got 10 bucks
#3 having to watch over and over the cutscene before fighting ansem in kingdom hearts. each time was 10 minutes of my life. it was frustrating

Nice topic. :]

::Proudest::
1) Finally "catching 'em all" in the original Poke'mon games. LOL That was an epic childhood moment.
2) Getting a 10-star ranking in SH3
3) Beating "Xepher" on challenge in DDR:SuperNOVA [/Painful/]
4) Finishing the PS1 Spyros with 100% completion [120% for the first with that additional level]

::Worst:: [Lulz @ too many to list]
1) Attempting to beat GHII on Expert with 5 stars for every song. D: I got probably halfway and then grew so frustrated that I ended up taking the guitar outside and breaking it against the side wall.
2) WHEN MY /2ND/ XBOX 360 GOT THE RED CIRCLE OF DEATH. The /rage/. D<
3) Fighting Nevan in DMC3 on difficult mode. That took /ages/ time wise and usually ended up just giving up. D:

Resiednt Evil 1-3 in less than 2 hours no saving, its like breathing for me when I play these games. Also, beat Tofu's stage.

Silent Hill 1 HAD 10 stars (lost memory card...), Silent Hill 2 10 stars, Silent Hill 3 9.7 stars, Silent Hill 4 10 stars, still working on origins.

Streets of Rage 2 solo on very hard

All seeds of strength and beat the mine cart stage in Tomba 2. You have NO idea how hard that is.

Never broke ANYTHING for ANY console EVER. (At least not my fault, effin sister broke my genesis while I was away)



Failures: Died on first goomba in Super Mario 3 once.

Never can get past level 3 of ANY Contra.

Watch me play Virtua Fighter, its hillarious how pathetic I am.

BEST:
1. Getting the True Demon ending in Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.
2. Beating X-COM UFO Defense in less than two days (trust me on this one).
3. Defeated Kangaxx the Demi-Lich in Baldur's Gate II with one character.
4. Successfully used Ivy's Summon Suffering attack in combat... once, in Soul Calibur III.

WORST:
1. Had to cheat to defeat Darth Malak in Knights of the Old Republic.
2. Am a consistently terrible at PVP in World of Warcraft (Retribution paladin).
3. Broke Final Fantasy XII... no, really, shattered the disc. Ashamed, I bought another one and began really enjoying the game. I still feel stupid about it though.

Yeah, great topic!

Greatest:
1) Beating Super Mario Bros. 2 when I was only 11 years old. When you are that young, it means the world.
2) At 14 years old, throwing and breaking my SNES controller out of frustration from playing Street Fighter 2 Turbo, realizing only Roundhouse kick button worked, and still able to beat the game without continuing with Ken on normal mode
2) Discovering the "DownAway+A" glitch in Soul Calibur 3 and destroying survival made with over 200+ wins with Rock
3) Started a new game of Persona: Revelations over 5 years ago, then out of boredom, picked it up again and beat the last dungeon and boss in under 1 hour.

Blunders:
1) Playing for 3-4 hours on a new game, then realizing I am out of memory card space to save my game for (insert game title here).
2) Bought "Dead Rising" for X360 due to fandom, but I do not even own an X360 system.


This one is both a blunder AND something to be proud of:
The MMORPG "Perfect World": Built up a character since Dec. 2007 to lv 83, becoming a guild master for over 80 loyal people and having some of the absolute best equipment for my level, but in doing so, spending over $1500 of real money(cummulative), gaining over 18 lbs of weight, and nearly losing my girlfriend of 3 years in the process.

Without saying a world to my guild, I just quit cold turkey yesterday, not selling the character or anything. I also banned myself from the game forever by creating a jarbled bunch of letters for a password.

2. KOing SOMETHING important in Super Smash Bros Brawl.

1. Receving my final score in Dirge of Cerberus. Total amount of KOs throughout my first playthrough: 57.

Memories a tad fuzzy.

Best
-Beating my first RPG ever: Chrono Cross

Worst
-Getting to the final puzzle in Silent Hill 1(before the final boss fight), only to find that the code for it, WILL NOT WORK. At all. I crawled every area of it to see if I missed something. NOTHING. I never got to finish the game. ;_____;

-Finding a Project Justice machine. Player 1, the kick buttons don't work. Switch to player two, the diagonal doesn't work. Killed my damn air launchers, chain command, and flipping team up techniques. Made me want to punch the machine.

It's late. My brain's fried.

Best:
#1: Being able to walk away from a game that is frustrating me. (I couldn't always do that. So many broken controllers.)

#2: Beating my very first video game. ( Loonely Toons Adventures for the Geniuses.)

#3: 100% completion of Pyconauts.

#4: Beating Halo 3 on legendary by my self within 20 hours.

Worst.

#2: Broke off the disk tray to my original XBox (It wouldn't open so I broke the disk tray to get the game out.)

#3: Most of the time, it takes me years to finish the games I start. (I always get involved with another game, so it takes me a long time to get back to them.)

I see your speed runs without saving and raise you a knife only!
