Name your greatest achievement earned

After playing the bonus Mile High Club level on COD4 on veteran and finally getting the freaking achievement (an hour later for a minute long level) I thought it would be fun for everyone to throw out what their best achievement (or most proud of) is. I know there must be tons of hard ones to achieve.

Video Game wise?

Actually finishing a game is a great achievement.

I beat the original Ninja Turtles on NES. Very few people I know have.

Besides that it would be the threesome I had in college. Or the one I paid for the last time I was in Vegas.

It's not just one but so far my favorite is it's getting 1000/1000 on JERICHO while playing on highest difficulty.

The only other game I'm 1000/1000 on is TMNT. That was kind of big deal too because I didn't think I would finish it. But then I've figured out that one can play a game and gain skills; then go back to old finished levels/missions and nail certain achievements on easier difficulties.

mine is YOU ROCK POLLEN JOCK in bee movie game (200gs) its to get perfect in every level and find 100% of the crap lying around the game. I got half way there and my game save got corrupt and i had to start all over again to get 100%, none of my other stats carried over. Not many people have 1000/1000 in that crappy game. I do. I have 1000 in close to 20 games right now.

The achievement that took me the longest, was the Death Star II Undefeated achievement in LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. That thing took me 20-30 tries. Never want to replay that level again...though I think I have to for the Super Story Achievement (luckily I think you can get that even if you die on the level).

I recently cheated Battlestar Galactica with my friend's 360 to get 50 lousy GS with something like 13 hours of playing against a dummy. But I'm one of only 7 people (according to my360stats) to have finished that lousy game.

Oh, "greatest". I thought this was "lamest". I think I should withdraw my entry.

Mine is MHC. It took me 6 hours. By the end of it, my thumbs were completely numb from sprinting and knifing.

Not sure if it was the greatest, but finishing those levels on Saint's Row where you have to steal the hookers from the pimp was rough. I think its only worth a small amount of GS too.

One of my favorites was killing all the Templars in Assassin's Creed. One of my favorite games, I haven't 1000/1000 the game yet but I will someday.

Mine is not just beating Mike, but figuring out how to punch him in the first 90 seconds while he does his uppercuts, and being able to knock him out in the 2nd round.
