Alenth and I were discussing this a bit in the KOF XIII forum–but I thought it would be interesting to hear about your most difficult accomplishments in all video games. For me, when I was a teen I thought beating Emerald and Ruby Weapon in Final Fantasy VII made me a badass. Eventually I started to seek out the hardest things possible in games I loved just for the satisfaction of completing them.
Currently, I’d say the hardest thing I’ve ever done in a non-fighting game was doing a run of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for the DS with a level one experience cap on the hardest difficulty and without using any items or skills from previous runs.
In fighting games, the hardest was definitely doing all the KOF XIII trials for all characters. Ash alone took me about a week, trying a few hours a day.
Let’s share stories and maybe find a new challenge to tackle.
