When I became number 1 on Chime's hardest level in the leaderboards.

Same again when I did it on a game called Viva Ex Vivo, smashing the dev's high score.

Most of the time I'm just happy being average to poor.

Probably this, tbh:

Tetris Game mode B Level 9-5 on Gameboy

According to TwinGalaxies official high score table all three of those scores would make the top 8 in the world. Not bad for one sitting :D

I can vouch for Trev's Tetris skills - we had a pretty heated battle on the RetroCollect forum a few years back and drove each other to some insane scores on Type A. We'd both be in the top 10 in the world if we'd submitted them.

He did beat me though. :(

DX is my preferred weapon of choice though - I'd be THIRD on that.

Officially though, it'd probably be the brief period I was ranked 4th in the world for the long jump on Super Stickman Athletics for the 3DS.

Yeah, that was great fun :D I still can't believe anyone can 999999 that game though, it's bonkers!

Nice going on the DX version mate, 3rd in the world on any game is not to be sniffed at!! 8)

I'd be pretty rusty now, i don't even own a GB anymore!

I can remember sitting for hours on the toilet playing Tetris , so much so I lost the use of my legs when i tried to stand. I remember getting the large rocket ending and being really proud once id managed to stand.

I echo this. That was hard but it is the only COD I finished on veteran. The rest in the series felt too much of a slog where as with 2 it felt doable.

Also being number one in the world of the street fighter alpha 3 survival mode on Dreamcast for two months back in the days of dream arena.

I think I was in the top 20 in the world at Geometry Wars Galaxies for a bit. It was years ago and the servers will have been turned off now so I can't check the exact position.

Beating COD 2 on veteran was very hard and made me happy.

Also I got into the top 500 players on COD black ops, but I was on it 24/7
