I remember being at least two thirds of the way through Commandos 2, having meticulously spent every map gathering up health items in addition to everything else *that i'd actually use* to then for some reason stop and realize that healing items were a waste of time to me if i didn't take any damage. So much time wasted managing my Inventory!
Yep, I always found my no upgrade runs felt more fun, because I didn't have to waste time gathering resources for them. In Ghost Recon Wildlands that was a HUGE time saver. I think the only games I ever did no damage runs on was original Far Cry on Realistic, and original F.E.A.R. on Extreme.
I still have the videos of them saved to disc, but I did them so long ago when I was just learning how to capture that most of them are too low res for YouTube.
I managed to redo a few of them at barely good enough res to upload, but they are best viewed on YT's smallest viewer size or better yet, the embedded viewers on forums.
F.E.A.R. - Bad Water - Extreme
Far Cry - Training - Realistic
Far Cry - Fort - Realistic
Far Cry - Factory - Realistic
