Hardcore gamers often try out new and old popular games to complete on highest set difficulty level or for a simple speedrun, to either break records previously set by other players or just to beat their personal best play.

In one such valiant effort, YouTuber ATwearkingYoshi has finally managed to beat full game Halo 3 on hardest difficulty setting Legendary, after dying too many times for months and using nothing but a Guitar Hero controller.
