According to me, the biggest obstacle was a street race where you had been given a super GT whereas others were given Bullet, Infernus etc. I nearly got frustated and i stopped playing for a while. But then I decided to complete it because that was the only thing remaining to complete 100%. So I practised using Super GT on the streets without overturning and skidding (which is honestly the only thing I dislike in GT), then I tried the race again, after 2-3 tries, I finally completed it with a message saying the rewards received for completing the 100%. And that was truly my moment of relief and pride.

What about you ?

Have never completed it 100%, but I guess that collectibles are a big pain in the ass for me for some reason.

Bicycle and Motorcycle challenges. I don't have the interest (read enjoyment) to do them.

I completed GTA San Andreas (100%) two times without using any cheats. The most annoying part was searching the snapshots.

For the 100% challenge I guess the worst obstacle was at the time "Just business" mission, man I had to do that mission so many times and now I can almost do it with my eyes closed.
For the PS2 it's still Zero's "Air Raid" I haven't been able to finish that mission yet blush.gif
But still for me the hardest thing is to complete is the burn and lap drive school mission with gold (although it is not required for 100%)

For me, the most hassling hindrance was either Supply Lines or Supply Lines.

Same for me. Well actually BMX and NRG challenges are ok in my opinion, but Chiliad races are driving me crazy suicidal.gif . It's not that they are hard, they are actually quite easy, but going all way up to the top of the Mount Chiliad everytime after race is quite annoying. Not to mention that if you fail the race, it's much better choice to reload than going all the way to the top again.

The collectibles are definitely the most tedious and annoying thing about 100% completion for me. I don't have many problems with the other stuff and most are quite enjoyable but the collectibles have always been the thing that gets in my way. The first time I played I did get what I found but I certainly didn't bother looking for all of them by myself, but even with a guide it was still a bit of a chore going all around San Andreas picking everything up. However, I knew if I wanted to get 100% I couldn't keep avoiding it.

The NRG-500 Challenge drove me to the very edge of my insanity a few times but I eventually got 100% without cheats. The rewards are awesome too! inlove.gif

This. There especially was one tag in Ocean Docks that took me days to find, then, one day, I randomly came across it while driving.

Back in the day "Wrong side of the tracks" was the hardest mission for me, I couldn't complete it no matter how many times I tried.

Until one day, when I f*cking did!

Then I had a friend call me over and help him complete his.

I agree, the tanker missions were the hardest part for me too. Even knowing the best route it's all up to chance if the police will ram you the wrong way and cost you the mission. Sometimes I wouldn't have a chance in hell while the next try I'd get by with hardly any problems. It's just the chaotic nature of the police slamming into you that make it so unpredictable and challenging.

Oh, and the "Alley Oop" test in the driving school.

burn and lap drive school mission, hardest mission to get Gold. But, i success complete that mission.

if i stuck: "OPTIONS -> DISPLAY SETUP -> ADVANCED -> FRAME LIMITER -> OFF" after that it looks not too hard. i got 100% (gold) twice. And of course a three cool car in front of car school house! colgate.gif

100% completion complete inlove.gif

The hardest part for me was definitely the Ammu-Nation Gun Range Challenge; more specifically the challenges for the Pump Shotgun and AK-47. The NPCs always to seem to hit two, sometimes even three targets in one shot. I still cannot finish it. I had max skill for the Shotgun so that might affect it when the accuracy increases.

Yes, Alley Oop sucked to get 100%, and the gun school (while easy on PC) is almost impossible on PS2 for me.

Another thing that was really easy on PC but impossibly frustrating on PS2 was Zero's first mission with the minigun shooting planes.

Paramedic. Almost smashed my computer after the game crashed 10 times in a row on levels 8 - 11. I think it was because I was recording it so I checked Split Video option on Fraps and it worked. Seriously, Paramedic missions are the biggest pain.

Definitely the Tags. The jetpack does make it a lot easier though. The Train missions were completely obsurd too.

I never really had any difficulty in any of the missions/side missions etc the only thing that got me was the Boat schools first test (Basic seamanship) which seemed to be impossible to get the gold when i do it normally, so the only way i can archive getting the gold in that test is to crash into one of the buoys (not hard to do but weird and you have to be lucky not to have a damage penalty) the Coastguard is just too slow on acceleration and braking

Definitely the collectible stuff (all of them) confused.gif Sure you can use maps, but that's cheating in my book

I once found 80 or so spray tags smile.gif

Mine is the Vigilante missions. Those criminals hurt like crazy when they start wielding AKs, not to mention those cops that start coming after a while.

Come to think of it, the main "obstacle" to total game fulfillment is player laziness. Supply Lines always obstructed my patience though.
