Hardest things to do in videogames

You can add Complete Halo 4 on LASO difficulty to that list, did one mission in coop last night and took us 2 1/2 hours.

I'm talking a coordinated effort by all players to take down a Knight and 2 players to take down a watcher. Nasty stuff.

So what do you think are some of the harder things to do that you have done?

I think the mile high club challenge in COD4 is also a honorable mention

I recall Splinter Cell (the very first) being really challenging to beat

Was a part of the world first Ouro kill in Ahn Qiraj vanilla WoW - took us 2+ months, 4 key members quitting and a nerf to finally take it down.

Definitely the most time consuming thing I've ever gone through in a game.

I dunno. It's probably something I've done in wow. I've raided at a pretty high level since it came out.

There is a fine line between hard and tedious. Sitting back and sniping your way through a shooter on high difficulty is tedious. Ninja Gaiden is hard. Many of us older gamers found difficulty from poorly designed games. Unresponsive controllers etc...

[/quote]i would agree with you most of the time on shooters but there are exceptions, like for the Mile High Club achievement in COD 4 you had like 1minute and 10 seconds to beat the level on veteran, which is basically running speed through the level and is probably the hardest thing I've had to do in a FPS till now.

Halo 4 on LASO means "Legendary All Skulls On!" The skulls if you don't know are mods you can turn on to make the game harder, including thunderstorm which doubled to enemies health, famine which gives you less ammo and Iron which makes you restart the entire level if you die(no checkpoints) by themselves the skulls aren't bad, but all of them on and especially Iron is freaking insane, seriously don't know if I want to even try another level like that again. Much less try and beat the whole game doing it.

Ive got to go with leading a top tier raid in Vanilla & BC WoW. The organization and planning that went into 40 man raiding along with the situational awareness to manage the group during an encounter was by far the hardest thing Ive ever done in a game.

Unlike most games that you can practice until you succeed, WoW raid leading was very unforgiving. You might get between 5 and 10 shots at getting your poo together before you were demoted and likely couldn't get a second chance with the same group. Very sink or swim.
