So, Elite Beat Agents...

Recently started playing this game again, finally managed to beat Jumpin' Jack Flash on Hard Rock (Infamous for being really faarking hard) and I really think it deserves a future classics, alot of you will likely disagree with this but, thats just what I think.

MGS3 and the mission in Europe in MGS4 especially.
