Greatest video game sports accomplishment

    I just started a new season on MLB 2005, and Dontrelle Willis just threw his fourth consecutive shutout. So far this season, he has 36 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 31 K and 4 BB.

    So what's your most amazing video game accomplishment? And Bo Jackson on Super Tecmo Bowl doesn't count.

    I once hit 89 home runs with Derrek Lee in last year's MVP Baseball on XBox.

    I also rushed for 2,400 yards in a season with Thomas Jones in last year's Madden.

    What level is that on? Rookie?

    I've won two straight national championships with Western Kentucky on NCAA 06 Baseball on the third-highest level (I forget what it is...All-American?).

    Ha, I got you beat!

    I won four straight national championships (plus two Heismans) with the almighty Princeton Tigers in NCAA Football '05 on that level. Took me eight seasons to get my recruiting up to par to pull that off, but I did it. And only two of those eight years were on probation for recruiting violations, too! :) :D ;D

    You fuckin kids, with your hipping and your hopping and your true-to-life video games. Back in my day, we had Nintendo Baseball:


    We didn't have actual rosters culled from big league teams. We had to make up our own pretend teams with players who moved like Tony Gwynn at Duke's fat farm and pitchers who could throw anywhere from 55 mph to 110 mph on the black on any pitch. And we liked it!!!


    In the summer of '88, I tried playing an entire season of those six teams. I assigned names to them based on the first letter of a big league team's nickname. So I had the A's, Cardinals, Dodgers, Pirates, Royals and Yankees. I'd get home from my paper route, put in a tape (!!!!) on the boom box (!!!) and play for a few hours til I rode my bike (!!!) to the local pool. Then I'd come home and repeat.


    I got to about 100 games before school started. Mark Gubicza, or at least his electronic replica, went 14-0 for the Royals. Ozzie Smith hit about 12 homers. It got so silly that I'd start to only count every other homer, because really, Ozzie wasn't hitting 12 homers in a season if he was traded to Colorado immediately after spending a winter working out with Barry Bonds.

    And I hit a ton of triples, becuase if you hit a ball into the corner it would take those lardasses forever to dig it out:


    Is it any wonder I was the last American virgin Great times. You guys have no idea what you missed.

    On the old Track and Field arcade game, I could run 100 metres in under eight seconds. And surpass 9.6 metres in the long jump. And approach 2.5 metres in the high jump. All without steroids -- although I did have a cool '80s porn-stache. ;D


    Just to clarify, this is just a picture I found on Google. I'm not GDG. GDG obviously sucks at this game. :p

    GD, I think MVP '06 is the greatest baseball game of all-time...

    In one Dynasty season, my 1B platoon of Josh Phelps/Trot Nixon combined for 86 home runs. I also threw a no-hitter with Josh Fogg.

    I always sucked at the hockey game, but I could win every fight.

    Hey, I'm not posting my mullet picture again. (and no)

    I paid homage to Gubicza by drafting him in my first-ever roto draft in 1994. In 1995, he actually had a helluva year. Not bad for $2.

    I once made it through the 10,000 meters of Decathlon without breaking my wrist.

    I beat the first Tomb Raider, original Playstation. No help, no cheats.

    I loved that game -- Blades of Steel -- but damn did it ever make my thumbs hurt like hell.
