I beat WC2 Tides of Darkness + Beyond the Dark Portal with Orcs and Tides of Darkness with Humans and got to the penultimate mission of Beyond the Dark portal with Humans. I will look into finishing it someday.

Cleared SC1 in terms of both the actual game and the expansion pack.

I think finishing the Driver 2 story mode when I was 10 was an achievement . That game had some tough ****ing missions made even worse by the terrible AI.

Out of curiosity Swan (and sorry to sound proper dumb) but when you speed run GTA3 is it 100% completion you go for or just the main storyline missions? GTA3 would probably be the easiest for me to speed run out of all the PS2 GTA games I think. I only remember one or two missions being fairly difficult (I think one was called ‘Espresso 2 Go’ or something like that).

You don't sound proper dumb Basically no, 100% is it's own category (which i've yet to route for yet, but it'll happen soon, hoping for around a 9/10 hour run, RNG will play a huge part in that), i've done every category BUT 100%. So like any% will be the fastest because i dupe 4 missions (meaning you set on om0 and duplicate the mission and tricking the script, and pass with a death/bust), and any% is just that, complete the game as fast as you can, however you like, without cheating.

All missions, so all 73 missions is it's own category, that one i have a 3:45:11 time in, so yes quite a big difference from any% which is 1:18:56.

GTA 3 is a decent game to speedrun, little things will annoy you more than not, and RNG can really make or brake a run. As for the missions, yeah Espresso 2 Go is notorious with casual playthroughs because you have to get near the stalls for the blips to appear on the map, and it's across all 3 islands, so if you don;t know the map well then yeah it's very tricky. I've seen people stuck on this mission for hours (obviously in speedruns we know the best route, and it's fairly straightforward )

I don't have the slightest clue what any of the 'achievements' even are - I've seen the trophies & stuff before but never looked into any of it at all, I just play the games

Ah ok so youíve done speed runs on this game a fair few times then I take it? The hidden packages part is what Iíd probably find the most annoying but I suppose if youíve learned and memorised all the locations for them it can be fairly easy. Thatís some impressive times btw, I doubt I could finish the game that quickly .

I think as well, one of the harder things I found with this game is that as you progress through it, you become more hostile to gangs which can be a pain, especially in the Mafia turf on Portland because they walk around with shotguns that can blow up your car with 2 hits near enough. Speedrunning this game is probably so much fun tho, Iíd literally have MSX FM playing throughout the whole thing to make me play faster (Chatterbox FM was another great station from that game, had me in hysterics listening to it ).

I've platinum'd a few PS4 games/PC games on Steam. It wasn't something I used to be into, my first was Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4 then I finished up Arkham Knight on PC (because it was sat at something like 97%). I've done quite a few games since then.

The only game I can speed run is Resi 4 (original GameCube version) and I can also challenge speed run it (handgun only, no upgrades allowed, knife only, etc). That's due to me and one of my Uni housemates moving into our house 3 months earlier than everyone else (from the start of summer, everyone else moved in when classes started in late September) and all we had was a GameCube with one controller and a telly. We didn't even have furniture, other than beds. So we sat cross legged in the empty living room with the TV on the floor playing Resi 4 for 3 months straight.

Good times honestly.

I have yeah, tons and tons of runs, 1/1000 completed PB runs isn't considered bad lol. Yeah i know where every package is off by heart now haha, same with jumps and rampages lol.

I would LOVE to see you try, i have tutorials on yt

You have a good knowledge of the game, love it! And yeah you're right, the hostile gangs can be a thing too.

Thatís impressive oh the stunt jumps, I used to like the one that jumps the Callahan Bridge (it was on the Staunton Island side).

Link me some of your speed runs and Iíll give them a watch

GTA3 was a great game, compared to San Andreas itís probably considered quite short but I still find it fun, enjoyable and easy to just start up and play again.

Beat both Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus and got the best ending in both of them.

Same, Exoddus took a while for me though cause I struggled finding all the secret areas and didn’t realise there was a really obvious clue as to where they all were . I liked that all the Mudokons had emotions (if that makes sense) and you had to do certain things (apologising to the angry ones) or taking extra care (leading the blind ones) when rescuing them. It was just a cool little feature that made that game a little better to go back to compared to Oddysee but that was still a great game nonetheless.
