I do have to say, even though I wasn't in love with the entire franchise, beating Halo 3 and seeing (both) clips that finally resolved the story was a lot of fun. I enjoyed watching the finality of it immensely.
I anxiously await Halo ODST and Reach.
Bungie also hinted at a solo game with the Arbiter as the main protagonist without the Chief.
Judging by the Legendary ending in Halo 3, there will be more Chiefey in the future.
I'm all for all of it.
Mike Tyson's Punch Out! was damn near impossible. My sister beat that before I did, I will never forgive her. The hardest game I ever beat was Batman on the NES (based on the 1989 movie). It was hard due to poor design, but I toughed it out and now no one cares!
And MO is right, Mario 3 is hard to beat without dying, mostly for me because of the airship levels. I always get nailed by at least one canon. Anyone here do original Mario speed runs? I think the record is like 5:19 minutes:
I tried this and the best I could do is like 12 minutes. I had a hell of a time in the last few levels with the Lakitu ********.
Played more sports games then anything really growing up. Have really started to expand more now.
Nothing huge like beating a game without dying and such for me. But the one that stands out most is beating the first Red Faction on PS2, really the first game I ever got all the way through. I can't remember the name of the game but it was on N64 it was Star Wars based but not exactly like any of the movies, got to the end but a friend erased my save, *******, never lend your games out.
My brother sit in front of TV and play video game for hours and hours and hours.
My father not happy with him.
He not get up even for Ramen of Cow.
My brother not have job.
Dad say that Playstation not pay bills or find wife.
He sent him back to rice paddy. Brother in love with Tomb Raider with large chest
gyuuniku no ramen wa totemo oishi desu.
Once won a 2 vs. 1 in C&C: Generals. Both players were talking a lot of trash but I stomped them both because I was a damn guru at that game.
Never lost a game of NFL Blitz on the N64 to my buddy. One time he was winning but, with no time left, I managed to pull what is IMPOSSIBLE to do in that game: Return a kickoff.
Same friend... Once while he slept I loaded up his GTA-III save file and put car bombs in all of his vehicles. When he entered one of his cars it would give a "beep" and explode to his total bewilderment. That prank still cracks me up.
Same friend again; when we were playing some N64 baseball game I had Larry Walker up to bat and made the statement that it was going over the fence. I nailed a homerun on my first swing.
On the hardest difficulty settings available: beat all of the Hitman 2, Contracts, and Blood Money levels on Silent Assassin; beat all of Chaos Theory's levels with 100% stealth.
Could play Tetris on my phone endlessly. I got to 500,000 points before quitting while playing upside down/intentionally letting the blocks build up before knocking them back down.
Unlocked everything on Red Dead Revolver. I'm excited for the sequel.
I didn't have the rank due to simply not playing as much, but I beat all of the top ESPN NFL 2k5 players while I was playing it online. Most of these matches were against illegitimate playstyles as well. I found most of the guys have some kind of money play either on defense or offense and it simply was a matter of finding the counter. Once you did they were, for the most part, really bad players.
Beat Goro without being touched thanks to an invincible rotation of jump -> kick.

Oh, and I was also consistently able to beat Killer Instinct on a quarter, and owned the records on half the machines in the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
Beating the last two levels of Golden eye on 007 difficulty.
Probably the hardest game to beat, I can remember...
NFL Blitz was so much fun. I started pounding people once I found out about that little "cheat" thing you could do on D when playing someone else. Whenever they throw it, you just switch players to the guy closest to the ball right before their receiver gets it, and then tackle the receiver. Cake.
The computer would still randomly beat me, though. It was weird; like, aggravatingly, they'd beat me on a Hail Mary on the last play of the game. I almost cried. Still incredibly fun, though.
