Default Your Gaming Achievements

Ok, so i speedrun GTA 3 on PS4. It's night and day compared to how you can glitch on PC, but i have some pretty decent times (WR in all but one Console GTA 3 speedrunning category)

Speedrunning is super addictive, takes a lot of skill and practice, but i love it.

So yeah, are you a Trophy hunter? Do you speedrun? Ever beat a near impossible game to beat?

Post your achievements here.

That's fair, not for everyone, hence why it's 'gaming achievements' so can be anything? Mine just happens to be speedrunning.

I have a ton of respect for Trophy Hunters.

I speedrun splinter cell, but that's the only one, and back on the ps3. Had a world record for a few weeks after release, then this Russian just dominated the whole leaderboard with insane times and scores. Still load it up once in a while to replay some missions.

Unfortunately not as I don't have a capture card. I have the game on the current gen xbox though (through backwards compatibility), so I'll load it up over the next couple of weeks and record a few missions.

GTA 3 seems like a weird game to speedrun, how did you get into it?

Ah ok cool.

I mean the PS2 Trilogy to speedrun is super popular, granted VC and SA are more popular to run, but plenty run GTA 3 too (most on PC, granted).

There's a fairly big community for it. I just happened to prefer to run as i played it a lot as a kid. Will probably start to learn VC and then SA too.

I didn't even finish 3, I don't think. I was too into football and fighting games. I played the crap out of VC and SA though. You got any vids?

I was super into football games, i preferred Pro Evo over FIFA back in the mid 00's. Managing games, Tiger Woods, Gran Turismo etc etc.

3 is pretty hard casually, but it shaped what the GTA franchise become. It has a special place in my heart anyway.

Yeah i have a few.

I loved pro-evo: definitely the best in those days. And championship manager before it became football manager. I'll check those vids out and let you know. Be weird seeing that many pixels running round my screen after all these years with improving graphics!

I'm watching the first one. How do you know you're getting a WR as it starts? My SC missions take around 5ish mins to complete in speedruns. Concentrating for an hour and half like that is impressive.

I played through Vagrant Story 3 times and I think I got a 100% map reveal rate, but I did not get all of the weapons.

I would have to check my PS1 memory cards though as I think my save files are still there.

I think I aced ISS Deluxe on SNES and ISS 64, ISS 98 and ISS 2000 on N64. (Won all the World tournaments and World Leagues on all levels from 3 to 5. Scenarios only on levels 3/4, I think.

I think I did the Short Tournament on those games that it was available.

The Master League cup is tough to get as you have to win the league on the 1st try with most of the team being crappy/mediocre. I'll have to try that again at some point.

I won all the tournaments on FIFA 2000 and cleared the season mode (2/3 seasons + Cups & Champions league).

Mind you, it's not very hard.

I won the International tournaments with Finland and the season ones with Arsenal.
