Finishing Robocop in the arcades on one credit
Finishing Target Renegade, Robocop, Operation Wolf and Joe Blade 2 on the Spectrum
Finishing Super Mario Land and Batman on the Gameboy

Apart from Target Renegade which always was a little easy I'll be damned If I can get anywhere near the end on the rest of those games now.

My proudest gaming moment was watching my 3 year old son finally get down the slide in Mario 64 without falling over the edge.
Thoughts and prayers.
