We all have done it. What is something that you have done for bragging rights and bragging rights only?

I have been big into Fortnite since around February, and I soon found that I had everything Battlepass-related on my account. Now I feel the need to max out every Battlepass in order to satisfy the completionist in me. This include grinding out missions every week, on top of whatever random events they throw at us.

I also am making this lovely General Chat thread :^)

Fishing for 100 total likes on Azurilland before it gets archived. Why else would I have posted a picture in the photo thread so close to the sunset? :^)

Recently, I played through EarthBound and got every single 1/128 drop item, known as the 1/128 challenge. I think there's 25 of these items in total. Some of the items are useful, but most are just pretty basic, so it was really only for bragging rights. Took about 51½ hours but I managed to do it, mostly just so I could say I did.

Because I can't help myself. I'm 14 years old. I have the Black Knight though, so I'm the best 14 year old.

In Hat in Time, there's this mode you can put on which instantly kills you if you have it activated and get hit once. I thought that having that activated while fighting the final boss would be a good way to spend my time before the DLC came out. I mean I did it, but jeez it was one hell of a ride. There's also the Inner Agent 3 fight in Octo Expansion, which took me approximately 50 tries on I wanna say? And the finally, going against Sans in the Genocide route was a matter of bragging rights, it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it'd be though.

I think literally any Smash Camp related achievement I may have is purely for bragging rights as well, who does SC for anything outside of that?

Smash Camp reminds me of another useless bragging right: I got a perfect score in Geoguessr. People try to say I cheated so it doesn't count, but even with heavy research, getting the pointer in the exact right location takes effort. It's still my crowning achievement in Smash Camp.

That's the main reason Chugga did his Let's Play of Earthbound, isn't it?

At one point in Smite I was obsessed with collecting every possible skin for a couple of characters I mained (Neith, Medusa mainly). I gave up on it though when I started losing interest in the game, however.

I have a couple of bragging rights that I can think of right away but they are quizbowl related so I don't want to go too into detail trying to explain everything, but I will say that making it through the entire preliminary rounds of the collegiate nationals tournament without getting a single incorrect penalty on tossup questions while placing in the top 10 highest scorers was something noteworthy. (Having zero "negs" is a really tough feat even for a player who isn't aggressive on the buzzer.)

Getting a pink tail in Final Fantasy IV.

For the unaware: a pink tail is an item with a 0.078% chance of a drop rate from a pink puff. You encounter 5 of these at a time so the actual drop chance is 0.39% (still super low). You can trade them for the best armor item in the game, but it's not needed in any way to beat the game or any of the bonus content.

Took me about 10 hours of grinding before I got one to drop. It wasn't worth it at all but it's cool to be able to say 'I did that'.

Honestly though, sometimes we'll do something dumb like that in a game just to say we did it. I did the same thing in Stardew Valley with the museum. You need to find like 50 rare objects for the museum from digging up spots on the ground. About 8 of these spawn per day and a lot of items only happen in specific areas with a 1% chance of spawn. I finished the museum, and it took 100+ hours of gameplay (It wasn't the only thing I did but I dug the spots whenever I saw them).

Uhh I'm pretty competitive so I'm sure there are tons but I actually can't remember that many. I've memorised every single pigment number and its modern name, I learnt every Pokemon name in Japanese and Chinese, and spent hours for the high score in Spikes for Smash Camp.

I actually really envy you, because I grinded for hours trying to get the Pink Tail in FFIV (well, worse yet, "FFII" on SNES so it was a 1/64 chance of running into them in the first place since there's no sirens/alarms/whatever they're called to summon the rare encounter). Nice job on getting that!

Usually, I grind loot boxes or spend money to get all of the unlockable items in events on Overwatch. Haven't gotten 100% for a while, though.
