I enjoy reading stories about crazy gamers doing something completely ridiculous, any game, any genre. Obscure or not, if there is a story to tell or a great achievement somewhere in it, i'm sold. There are so many memories and great moments that you just never forget, something just happened and became a big thing and the whole community just watched. So here is a thread to share cool stories about gaming. --------- I'll start off with one of my favorite memories, too bad it's one of those "you had to be there" things, where just talking about it makes you sound crazy. Probably doesn't make much sense if you never played Diablo 2... GERBarb vs RUSSBarb In late 2000 a team of diablo 2 players in Russia decided to powerlevel a barbarian character to the max level of 99, which had never been reached before. Soon another team in Germany tries the same and it was a race Read more: facts and interviews http://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Archives:_GerBarb http://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Archives:_RussBarb It was great tbh, people were following the race like eagles, helping out if they could, imagining 2 titans racing to new heights, being played by dozens of players night and day just boggled my mind to no end. (I was young, and a lot of things did that to my head either way, but you get my point.) Best part was when they broke the experience counter since it couldn't store higher value integers at level 92. That is classy. --------- Another one that I like that is slightly easier to grasp.. probably: Quake Done Quick - the movie Actually, the original isn't that interesting, but the follow up "Quake done Quick With a Vengeance" from year 2000, where they learn about bunnyjumping, is a lot of fun to watch if you have ever played a fps game. So in short it's about completing Quake 1 on the hardest difficulty, in the shortest amount of time. Each map is played separately and then stitched together to finalize the total time. 12 minutes and 23 seconds. It's available all over the internet to watch, here is one source: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7423603596413693402# There's even a wiki article about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quake_done_Quick My thought's when seeing it for the first time: "Wait, did he just grenade jump from that yellow key? holy shit" and "how is that even possible?!" over and over again. --------- Your turn?
