Just wondering what self-imposed challenges people come up with for games?
I think these have gotten a higher profile with Achievements/Trophies, as a lot of the more obscure ones are things like 'Complete the game only using the pistol'.
I've done a few of these including the Orange Box ones (Episode One with just Rockets/Gravity gun, and taking the Gnome all the way through Episode Two). I'm guessing the Episode One one must have been started by fans well before Valve ever thought to add achievements for it, though.
It was oddly satisfying to do them, even if they did get frustrating (considering they had to have known they were putting the Gnome one in there from the start, they could have given us a box on the car to put it in, or something).
I also got most of the way through the Half Life 2 carrying Dog's ball, but I ended up abandoning that run when some new games distracted me.
I've also just started a run-through of Fallout 3, limiting myself to unarmed weapons only.
Anyone else have some interesting examples/suggestions?
