Daytona USA - 1st place in a single-player run of the Beginner course. Almost did it on Advanced but a single mistake ruined me every time. T.T
(Mind you, finishing a race in Daytona is Nintendo Hard due to the time limit. Getting 1st in a single-player race against 19, 29, or 39 CPU opponents requires you to be nearly flawless.)

Edited because I can't read and listed all my accomplishments. Like, even from when I started playing. Thus explaining an incoming post discussing how killing Kingdom Hearts 2's Demyx on your first try really isn't that big of a deal (And I agree. By the time you fight him you should really have learned that the triangle button is your finest tool and should be abused every time you can).

Got the best ending in Eversion.
Demyx is kind of hit-or-miss, as far as That One Boss goes. The first time I took him on on Proud mode, no problem, whupped him my first time. The second time he offed me three times before I beat him.
Anyway. Accomplishments. Finished Prototype on Normal. Web of Intrigue completely filled out. All upgrades purchase. Offed twenty 'copters without my own getting destroyed. finished chapter 3-11 in Radiant Dawn. Made it to round 20 in two-player co-op on Nazi Zombies: Shi No Numa.

Finished Survival Crisis Z. Albeit by shamelessly being a filthy cheating whore.
Beat the first stage of Embodiment Of Scarlet Devil on Normal difficulty without losing a life and using one bomb.

Recently I've completed the absolutely horrible Beast Tamer quest line in Atlantica Online. It was very, very, very long winded and entirely composed of 'kill things to get x-amount of items' quests. I now have to level my beast tamer from 1 to 45. I hate new mercs.
I unlocked Kabuki, Bean Jam, and Sister Walk in Lumines recently as well. I must continue until I have everything...then I can play with skin edit mode in all it's complete glory.
I found the Milk Man in Psychonauts. He now wants to burn a building down. I finally smartened up and used the door portal thing on Gloria what'sherface. I am stuck trying to reach the phantom.
Gah! I almost 1CC'd Embodiment of Scarlet Devil on Normal just now. I had the final boss down to her last lifebar too.
Remilia, if you exist and are reading this, I'm gonna whoop your ass soon! >:
Not only did I never lose a fight to Demyx, I still don't really understand why he was supposed to be difficult.

i think it's because people never kill the water clones in time. I have to admit I always do it with exactly one second to spare (on Proud) but it's not like you need a particularly deep strategy for doing so.
Then again, many times I've seen people saying they play RP Gs because they "suck at games" and Kingdom Hearts seems like the kind of game an RPG fan would play even if it's not really the thing they usually play, so most likely it's them who suck.
Got two people to play Secret of Mana with me.
And it's now far easier to play.
(Also learned that I need to level up magic and weapons. What can I say. I don't like grinding.)

Playing Secret Of Mana with two other people is awesome.
Anyway, just last night I unlocked the last few songs in Super Smash Bros Brawl. 8-)
Beat the final level of Trine on Very Hard difficulty without any of the characters dying. Said level is basically a rising Lava Pit that also tests your ability to use all three characters' skills in a pinch, so to say it was stressful would be understating it a bit.

That sounds like fun (Secret Of Mana multiplayer). One of my dearest wishes is to play a Tales Series game with three other people and rack up monster comboes.
Beat An Untitled Story, then promptly deleted the game so I wouldn't be tempted to try and 100% the thing.
I don't think I'm gonna be able to resist, or at least be able to avoid trying for a hard mode run. Of course, I have to beat it on normal first...
It gets a little confusing in Symphonia, since if you're not the first player, it's kinda hard to figure out just what direction you should be going. Plus one person is almost always stuck being a spellcaster, and that gets a little old.
Abyss and Vesperia work pretty well, though, largely thanks to the free-run mechanic.
Surviving not one, but TWO consecutive Snakeman bases in X-Com. With Chrysalids.
Finishing stage 6-4 (and then 6-5) of Jumper 2.
Stuck on 7-1, arrgh...
Cleared a couple new level 32 songs in Pop N Music. One of which has horrible timing.
I always wondered why they didn't just make the entire 3D playing field available to you, rather than doing the "closer or farther from the enemy" 2D area of movement thing. I was later told that this was because that was tradition.
My rank reach over 7000 in Mario Kart Wii. It probably going to drop anyway.

Finishing Bioshock. On Easy, because I prefer the game to be actually easy rather than the ‘You can't lose but we'll teleport you to the Vita-Chamber anyway.’ Am now addicted to the silly big band music.
Also, having my most developed Oblivion character since my first one and possibly ever. He's Archmage, Sheogorath, and Grand Champion, not to mention having three or four Daedric artifacts, two houses (Or three if you count the questline homes) and the game breaking Blazetongue custom enchanted shortsword. Hurrah for getting black soul gems several levels before being able to get access to grand souls. The name is a bit of a joke on it being both a flaming and vampiric weapon. So it... eats enemies. On fire. Although I'll soon replace it with another custom enchanted weapon that has better base stats, probably a glass shortsword. Name suggestions?
Rome: Total War: I am aware the AI is a little dumb, but with just town militia and a cohort of hastati, I held off an incoming force of Gauls three times my number while they tried to assault my town. Granted, not much was left of my poor force, but the commander damn well deserved the adoption into the family.
...now to try Europa Barborum. And die horribly.
Don't worry, even on hard you'd be handed more ammo for every weapon and more health/eve than you could ever use up.
edit: Replying to the Bioshock post, by the way.

It depends about the ammo.
The first time I played through Bioshock, I was under the whole "this is System Shock 2 Under Water" impression, and I ended up with a lot of regular ammo, far more than enough to see me through the entire game on Normal.
Recently I restarted (after playing Doom 3) on Easy, and I was wondering why I kept running out of ammo.
Then I realized: after SS2, I had gotten into the habit of "ammo is scarce, weapons break like glass" and relying almost exclusively on the wrench for just about everything below a Big Daddy. After D3, I was in the habit of spray-and-pray.
So I'd say ammo is plentiful only if you actually try to conserve it.
