Gaming achievements are subjective, and therefore hard to rate. Nevertheless, if we had to rank this video of the original Ninja Gaiden being played with a Dance Dance Revolution pad, we'd say it falls somewhere between completing Demon's Souls using Nintendo's R.O.B. and finishing Dead Space 2 with a Power Glove. Don't believe us? Judge for yourself:
This is the final video of an 13-part series documenting Nick 'Dancepad' Hagman's (aka DJ17Nario) eight month quest to happy-feet his way through the 1988 NES classic. As the gaming elite will surely note, this wasn't accomplished over one, continuous session. But then, the guy beat Ninja Gaiden using a frickin' dance pad, so we're inclined to let that particular detail slide.
