Somewhere in France there's a young woman with horrible mental scars from the sight of a naked Will ;)
I checked all over scars - didn't find one. I was looking really hard too.

Creating a perfect base that spanned the entire map on Total Annihilation.....probably also the biggest waste of time ever!

I had an infamous "jinxster" fame when I was a teen in the arcades. I just needed to watch a player for seconds to make him lose a life. One day I entered the arcade and there was a sudden blackout. Everybody looked at me with fire in the eyes and I ran out. Not strictly "gaming achievement" but I was proud anyway. 8)

For me it has to be getting "totally in the zone" with Wheelie (speccy 48k) and defeating the devil rider over 5 courses on the trot !! Try that now !!!!!

Smoking has shot my reflexes and age has shot my mapping memory. Now i suck at it.

100% on Super Mario 64 was a good day. One of my top games of all time.

Completing Conkers Bad Fur Day 100% too. And Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie. Goddamn, Nintendo and Rare were a great partnership. Come on Wiiiiiii.

I have a couple

Completing Virtua Cop using both guns (arcade) and only using 3 credits (4 hits each)

Spending 6 hours solid in the trocadero (london arcade) on Killer Instinct disposing of all who challenged til I needed to go to the loo (almost pissed myself!!)

Completing the simpsons arcade game with one credit (only 30p) if anyone knows where to find a good copy of that I'd love to play it again.

Completing Super Mario Land (GB) Sonic the Hedgehog (GG) and Streets of Rage 1 ad 2 (MD) in the same day.

and my next proudest moment will be when I once again own a 3do and complete my childhood collection once and for all!!!

Completing the original Streets of Rage on the Mega Drive in about 40 minutes with my brother. Then laughing when he died right at the end when the last boss needed one more hit to defeat him. All those points he would have gained by not dying in the whole of the game, lost. Mwahahaha!

Getting 2 flawless victories against Shao Kahn on Mortal Kombat 2 on the SNES. After many humiliating defeats, I discovered that whichever character you used, if you just stood still from the start of the match and kept tapping low kick with about a half second pause in between each button press, Shao Kahn keeps trying to move forward and gets hit by your outstretched foot. Strange, but true.

Managing to beat Tomb Raider 3 without cheats or a guide of any sort also ranks pretty highly as that game was quite unfair in many places and had a crap save system.

Finshing Final Fantasy VII Was Great, the Boss was A pain everytime his turn came around he did a move called supernova it took about 10 mins for this move to finish and he does it about 20 times lucky I went to the toilet before.
