I also cleared Megaman 10 three times through without getting hit, but I did that on easy mode so I guess that doesn't really count. Actually not quite as hard as I expected it!

I don't honestly know.

I don't actually finish that many games :oops: I'd probably say Doom on ultra violence was one of my better attempts. Lets face it, i'm not very good, i still haven't finished Manicbloodyminer in close to 30 yrs of trying :lol:

Batman and robin on the megadrive, it was well hard. Last year I played the snes version of the same game and it was totally different and I did not get off the first level! :D

don't think i've ever finished any games that are known as being ultra difficult. I did finish Xenon 2 on the Amiga and have since read that this was supposed to be a hard game, but I found the likes of Blood Money, R-Type etc far harder.

I'm impressed :D Batman and Robin on the MD has been a thorn in my side for years, I just can't clear the Mad Hatter's level before losing all my continues. Any tips? Best weapons etc.

Ninja Gaiden on Xbox - I wanted to tear my hair out so many times - main culprit was that radar dish boss that fired missles at you.

Call of Duty 2 (the WW2 one) on veteran and MW2 (the up to date one) also on veteran. Simply because I died so many times.

I don't think I've played too many ultra-tough games, have intended to play Ninja Gaiden for some time now. Finished Resident Evil 4 on professional which for me is quite something 'cos I rarely play games on anything worse than normal... wasn't very hard though so I doubt that's much of an ahcievement.

Anyone on here who's 100%ed Super Meat Boy needs a medal, I've done the main story, which wasn't too bad, but th rest just intimidates the crap outta me. I'm planning on going for the big 100% one day but will undoubtedly fail.
Chazz it up!!!

I was just thinking I got all 1000 achievements on Batman Arkham Asylum - those challenge rooms were super hard towards the end.
