There’s one area where PC absolutely stomps on consoles: the ability to mod your games, so you can take on ludicrous challenges like this one.
Youtuber Dante Ravioli is one of many madlads who love taking on impossible video game challenges.

The result is almost 50 minutes of gut-wrenching over-the-shoulder stress – never has watching playthroughs been so engaging and terrifying. It takes near perfect dodges, planning and luck to get past any chokepoint for the entire game because one mistake usually sets you up for a metaphorical ground and pound with two or more Nemesis-type foes (Nemesi?) standing over you.
