    I was playing as an Arctic Avenger in Counter-Strike's Aztec map - a ten-on-ten match. We deployed immediately to plant the bomb with me and two other guys ahead of the rest, acting as scouts. My three-man section collided with the counter-terrorists immediately upon reaching the bomb site near the descending stairs leading to the subterranean river, and a firefight erupted in which I killed four of the enemy with my SG552 (two headshots) and a fifth with my Desert Eagle. This permitted my teammates to plant the bomb and set up sniper positions. I did not score anymore frags for that round, but we won it, killing the remainder of our opponents in exchange for five losses. Subsequent rounds were nowhere as spectacular, but I achieved an overall score of sixteen kills to one death - the best ratio among all the players. Good times.

    most recently it would have been some classic street fighter matches. like the ones where someone does an ultra, the animation begins, they think you're fucked, then almost immediately your ultra animation begins and you win the round. love those moments!

    Getting all the neccessary purple coins and then actually making it back to grab the star on the flipping Luigi tile level of Mario Galaxy. That level aged me by about 5 years.

    Getting to Gannon in the original Legend of Zelda and finding out that you can't beat him without a sword.

    The old guy's right, take the damn sword.

    Shooting all the frogs in Metal Gear Solid 3. The one on the runway had me pulling my hair out, and when I finally hit it and heard the sound effect, I cheered.

    I find that impressive considering how hard I find that game and how often I died.

    No, believe it... Kids (myself included) were made of sterner stuff back then. Games have gotten soft. Back then the brutality of certain games made you try and try again, until you were so good that you didn't die in the areas you originally died 100 times.

    Yeah, I agree! Hook - I salute you for doing the near impossible!!! XD For me it was completing Ninja Gaiden on the PS3 - I thought I could never complete such a game! The jumps, the bosses etc. At times, i wanted to smash my controller!

    Heh, in retrospect, it does look like a difficult talk, but it was just a matter of memorizing where the soldiers would appear. Moves became a choreography and all I had to do was repeat them the same way every time.

    My parents didn't buy me games too often back then, so for the longest time the only two game I had were Super Mario bros. and Contra.

    It's only after playing the shit out of Contra that I found out about the Konami 30 lives code *slaps forehead*
