Not chucking my SNES through the window when Super Ghouls and Ghosts sent me back to the start.

Not getting too pi$$ed off when trying ot play Hyper Street Fighter II Aniversary using the PS2 pad's - the d-pad buttons are really pants when trying to pull off special moves, diagnols are a challenge on the official PSX/PS2 pads.

Other than that, completeing "Head Over Heels" in 1 hour without using any cheats - but I only had 2 lives left when I did it!

I've been trying to complete Head Over Heels for the last twenty years :lol:

And as of last night - completing Doom on the PSX/PS2 - try playing an FPS with a PS2 controller. I'm used to using the keyboard/mouse combo of a PC.

Monkeys Magic!

My fave memoery is making my brother to complete Monkey Magic on our C16 and then realise that there WAS NO END SCREEN, and the fecker just goes back to the beginning of the game. I made him complete it again just in case.

MWA HA HA HA HA HA

Being crowned week's champion on Games World, and getting a big golden Aztec statue as a reward. Unfortunately, my final score for the leaderboard was a few points short of coming back for the top 5 grand finals. You can file that one under "nearest gaming miss" if you like.

EDIT:
Then again, I could also say meeting Miyamoto, or getting to freelance for the NEW Retro Gamer; it's so much better than the old one! :D

Getting Street Fighter II on the SNES before all my mates did. I lost to them on it, but still, it felt like I'd won.

Street Fighter II Turbo, Hardest Difficulty, fastest speed, beaten with every character on one credit. (Buggered if I could do this one nowadays though I reckon).

Playing Defence Force (great Defender clone on the Oric) for so long that it eventually gave in and died in a crumpled heap - obviously I'd taken the level generation routine beyond its capabilities and the programmer's expectations :D

Either...

Finishing Monkey Island II on the 'Miggy - months of great fun and much headscratching!

Or....

Finishing Ninja on the 800XL - not tough but was the first game I played to the end on the machine.

:D
What was more amazing to me was the challenge of making it work on the less capable Commodore 64. It was a real nightmare implementation, but I did it. - Archer Maclean

Unlocking everything in Mario Kart Double Dash. It was the first time I had unlocked & completed everything in a Mario Kart game. I was going to do the same with the DS version but I just can't get into it as much...
