I'm being chased by EDF, they're coming from both ends of the bridge I'm crossing. As I cross their nearby aircraft begins shooting bullets, blasting window after window behind me in sync. I whip out my Nano rifle and shoot it at every window, then watch the aircraft disentgrate as I fight my way to the other side. That was what the game should have been the other 99.9999999% of the time.
2. I beat the Deus Ex Human Revolution bosses pretty easily. Seriously guys, it's not that hard. Level designers set it up so you can take them out relatively easily. For the first one, you find the rocket launcher on the first floor of the complex, and then you just use that on him. The second one, you use the area of effect AUG then toss a gas grenade at her feet -- that's all it takes. The third one simply requires a revolver with over 20-30 bullets and the explosive rounds mod. The final boss lets you take whatever strategy you want it just pushes your skill in that strategy to the limit. Not exactly rocket science...
3. I play Dead Space 2 in Hardcore and it feels easier than my first time playing through on Casual.
4. I beat the first boss in Dark Souls without dying. And I made a good bit my way through the tutorial area before I realized that I had a full sword. Up until that point, I had just been using the broken hilt you start out with.
5. I managed to glitch The Force Unleashed on Wii so that every time it reaches the credits, the level where the last cutscene takes place loads as an in-game level, and you can hear Starkiller doing his thing as the credits cover it up. I've always wondered if it were possible to disable the credits somehow and see what the level actually looked like.
6. I've beaten every level in Syndicate's co-op mode on Hard, by myself. Okay, Colorado I needed help on but it damn well requires it. And I only had one other person that time. For reference: the easiest difficult is Normal, the hardest one is Elite, which throws multiple mini-bosses at you on the easiest level. Several missions, no matter the difficulty, also end with you fighting unending waves of soldiers and 4 AI agents.
7. I managed to get Halo 2 to work on my PC without getting a functioning Windows LIVE account for the longest time. No patches, just managed to mess around enough that it just effectively gave up.

I have managed to set a few good records on some games. Like in Sonic 3 & Knuckles (via the DS game, sonic classic collection , I managed to earn one million points while playing as knuckles, and that felt pretty boss. (I do have a picture for some form of proof here if you'd like to take a look: [link] )
I've also achieved a 4th place record compared to the rest of the world at rocket ski jumping on M&S at the winter olympic games. (I'm ATM14 on the leaderboards) Not sure if I'm still up there now, it's been a long time since I've had a WEP connection to go and check.
Times like this where I wish I had some fucking recording software. Just set some records for myself.
1: For the game posted in the OP, DoDonPachi, I just 1CCed it's first loop on very hard mode. I got to the second stage of the second loop before I finally had to use a credit. That's a new record for me.
2: For the same game, I've topped my high score by some 3tril. So I've gone from 47,000,000,000+ points to 50,000,000,000. This effectively put me somewhere in the top 40 for the game on XBox Live.
3: Shaved 3 seconds off my personal best of A Link to the Past 100% speedrun. I took a different route after beating the Ice Palace to get to Misery Mire. Time was 2:14.13 vs the previous 2:17.56.
None of these are close to a world record, but not bad either.
Winning a game on the "Rise to Power" map on Heroes of Might and Magic V with highest enemy difficulty. Yeah, I suck at strategy games, but thanks to an absurd amount of luck and a very cool head, I managed to outsmart the competition. My strategy was: Run like hell.
Um.. Let's see.. When The Orange Box first came out, I had 100% all of the achievements for it. Of course with the updates that's changed now, but I still think it's pretty impressive! I've also gotten all of the highest ranks of Rhythm Tengoku (GBA) which reeeeaaally bloody hard!
That was a hard game to beat 100%, but good thing it was incredibly fun, making the endeavor worthwhile
I got all gold medals on all time attack modes for all the stages And about a quarter or a third of them are shiny-gold medals for excellent performance. But there were plenty of stages where regular gold was the absolute best I could do. That was my minimum goal anyway
I don't often find many games I actually am genuinly interested in these days. But when I find one I really like - I won't rest until I get everything
I must confess I had to watch some Youtube videos for some of the stages. There are some levels where you just will not get gold unless you take some surprising shortcuts And even after being shown how to do it for some of the stages - I was trying myself for hours on some
Yeah, as time goes by they keep adding more content required to be filled to complete them entirely. Though I found Sonic Heroes much easier to 100% than Sonic Adventure 2. I played Unleashed too but there was some stuff I could never find in that, and while the game was OK - it wasn't fun enough for me to keep at it for long enough to get everything once I just did the main stuff (beat all stages and finish the game story-wise). I never played 06 but I have heard tales of how awful it is
Then again, even the classics can be hard to do. I still can't complete all the Chaos Emerald bonus stages on Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (the ones where it's like running through a halfpipe, I can only do the first 4 or 5 at best )
Sonic Advance chaos emeralds were NO joke. That game didn't fuck around when it came to getting into special stages. And yes avoid Sonic 06. It's the most mangled broken down glitchy mess of a Sonic game ever. It just did not function right and sadly it could have been decent. Only issue would have been it's story if the game play was good. But if you're playing Sonic for story...you're dumb. O^O
Oh man, I forgot all about the Sonic Advance games. Very fun But yes - I think I only ever managed to even just get into the bonus stages once or twice throughout the three of them, and even then - they were so hard I failed at them. I have sometimes wondered if anyone has gotten all Chaos Emeralds and thus - Super Sonic in any of the Sonic Advance games Since I sure haven't even managed to get one emerald in any of them
I agree that people shouldn't look into the story of any Sonic game too much. They have never been about a deep storyline anyway. They just need to slap on something to make playing the game feel like you're accomplishing something
100% in Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations.
Oh, and I'm just warning you. Now that I've mentioned AC, beware of ~hoggys2much turning this topic into a "shit on AC because I want to lick Bayonetta's cunt" thread. You're probably gonna get the brunt of it, because he has me blocked for some odd reason.
I feel bad...I've played Gradius V for 430+ hours. It's a 1 hour game. I'll never play a game longer than that. 2nd place is Pokemanz Platinum with 130. First Pokemanz game for me. I fell in love with it and actually tried getting every last Pokeman.
Not so much good it is what I call one of my "default Games".
What that means is that it is one of the games I put on (my other is Soul Calibur IV) when I am bored and haven't got anything better to do and over the last couple of years the time has just built up.
I don't own the game. I borrowed it though, and played it like mad. I tried to get all the pure platinum trophies and it was extremely difficult. I tried going without dying, not getting touched at all, stringing nutty combos, speedrunning, I could never get higher than gold or platinum. That game takes about as much dedication to 100% as it does beating Gradius V very hard mode on one life.
