Your Finest Videogame Moment:

What was your greatest videogame achievement? What was your most fantastic feeling upon defeating anything? This is different from the post your recent videogame accomplishment threads, because those are recent, and generally not your grandest moments. Here, I want to see real stories about the exhilaration you felt. The joy. The passion!

The first videogame I ever beat was Sly Cooper 2: Band of Thieves. I got to see the end, and it was pretty shocking for a kid's game. I fought the boss, got the end cutscene, all was well. It inspired me to go back and beat the first game, too. I only beat the third game when I got the HD collection...fourteen years later.

It was a game of Conquest in the first Battlefield: Bad Company

We were on End of the Line, the game was going just terribly. Every objective was in enemy hands, eventually we spawned on the island objective to sort of sit around and plan but while we did that the enemy took all the mainland bases. We could spawn nowhere but the island and they had the entire team pinned there.

One by one teammates left the game until it was just me and 3 of my friends. We stayed the rest of the match and just held that island. Eventually one of my friends up and switched teams like a douche but the rest of us stayed. Boat after boat filled with players kept landing to try and take the island and we held them off. Tanks parked on the shoreline and tried to blow us to pieces but we got them first.

The game ended up in a loss but we wore them down to 28 tickets and most importantly, we held that island.

That was our fucking island.
Oh really, when?

DC Universe Online.

i was doing one of the Joker missions in Gotham, and i wasn't doing so hot. i was out of Soder Colas and on my last legs. while the boss was low on health as well, if i died, i got sent back to the beginning of the stage and would have to start the boss fight all over again. just when i thought i was gonna get wasted... i leveled up. i used this to pound Joker into the tile and claimed my reward. waii

one more: Kingdom Hearts 3D.

on a previous save file, i had made the mistake of heading towards a Boss Rush involving Ansem SoD without Dark Aura or Dark Splicer equipped. i must have died a dozen times before finishing him.

new save file. this time i was ready for him. on my second try, the Boss Rush was completely one-sided in my favor. Ansem never stood a chance. waii

Defeating Sagat in the original Street Fighter without using any cheats, and Shin Akuma in Street Fighter II are mine, lame but hey if you've fought those guys(especailly if you understand how messed up the controls are for the original Street Fighter were) you'd understand. I haven't been able to replicate those feats.

Fusing all the "Famed" demons in Shin Megami Tensei IV in four days made me pretty proud. For the confused, this little sidequest is an utter Luck-Based Mission involving trying to make something you normally don't want to happen, happen, and four days to get all nine of them is apparently really good time, as there's no way you're going to figure this out without a guide.
Playing Mass Effect 2 and saving the entire crew on my very first playthrough.

Final Fantasy X: My first playthrough, I took on one of the Monster Arena bonus bosses and got completely and utterly stomped. For the record, nobody had the necessary postgame stats to even joke about standing a chance.

Some time later, I do a single-character playthrough, and stomp them all. Felt great.

Beating the original Lemmings. No cheats or getting passwords to later levels - just plowing through all 120 levels of rescue by myself.
Reminder: Offscreen Villainy does not count towards Complete Monster.

Team Fortress 2, back when Mann Vs. Machine mode was new and Wave 666 was just released. I was trying the wave with a group of random people. I had selected heavy. We had a Medic, Engineer, Soldier, Pyro and Scout. Things were going pretty well until about 2/3rds in. A group of crit soldiers entered the map and blindsided us. The engineer was ganked by a sentry buster as the scout, pyro and soldier were taken down by the mini-wave of soldiers. The soldiers were 2/3rds of the way there in a small choke point where I made my move. The medic used his Kritzkrieg's Uber and an Uber canteen. I stood there in the center of the path, invulnerable and dealing triple damage from my Brass Beast. One dramatic You Shall Not Pass later and the soldiers were down, the engi was rebuilding, and all the others had respawned and were back in the fight. This particular moment still sticks with me as one of my favorite moments in gaming.

Beating Mr. Dream in the NES version of Punch-Out!! is probably up there. Or clearing Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels for the first time.

I'd say beating all of the Halo games solo on Legendary (well I haven't gotten around to 4 yet, but still). It counts for me since I started out stumbling around on Easy mode of all things.

One of my finest videogame moments? Kalameet's tail. Oh boy, did that take forever.

Beating Baldur's Gate 2. When I had first played it, it felt like the hardest game ever. It's gotten pretty easy for me since then, but still, the first time was crazy.

I am serious. This is my serious face.
Beating the final level of Serious Sam 3 on Hard after dying so much was so satisfying. Seventeen. Hundred. Enemies.
