Trophies/Achievements that you're proud of (Read 19038 times)
Infernal
The 16th man to successfully perform open heart surgery on himself while drunk. Well, I suppose "successful" is a relative term. It's true that he lived, but for the rest of his life he had to dress as a # leprechaun or his heart would stop.

I don't really have any achievements/trophies I'm proud of aside:

"Performed an Assassination against an Elite to survive a fall that would've been fatal. "

It took me about 15 minutes to do, and I had fun doing it, although the cussing would lead you to believe differently.

I'm currently trying to get all the trophies in flOw though. I love that game.


Only 15 minutes? Wow. Back when I played Reach a lot, I tried to find any opportunities and still never got it. I'd have to check my cheevos anyway to make sure.

I think I shared the video of me doing it on my account. It should still be there if you want to check how I got it.

I also played Kung Fu Panda.  And LEGO Indy.  They came with the X Box so I played them.  If I play them I am wasting my time, if I don't play them I waste my money.  Turns out, time is much more unlimited than money.

Did you know Kung Fu Panda is starring in the new World Of Warcraft expansion? Here is the title of the expansion:

World Of Warcraft: The Kung Fu of Pandaria

Oh that reminds me, I have to go to the hospital. WOW is currently on life support. Slowly dying sadly. Do any of you want to provide your condolences before I go?

I tried that cheevo for days. I even let Roadie download my gamertag so he could try and get for me and it would just never unlock. Biggest piece of shit achievement ever. So glitched.

I could get it for you. Not being cocky, but I know the place to do it at, the best.

Well you can give it a shot one day though I'm not as overly concerned with Reach achievements now but why not.

My brothers Xbox came with Lego Indy and Kung Fu Panda.

I LOOOVED Lego Star Wars 1-2, Lego Indy and Lego Batman. Terrific games that just make me love the franchises even more.

Still doesn't explain the crap sports games that handed out gamer score like candy. Or shitty launch games like King Kong which people only get for the points.

The Lego games are fun. I will admit that.

I must admit. When I buy a game and have to determine which system to buy it for, I take a few things into account:

What system will you guys play it on mostly

Which version is the better port

Are achievements more appealing to me than Trophies.


And certain achievements ill go for. I will not grind or kill the fun out of a game for an achievement though. That is just ridiculous.

I can honestly say that I'm almost 100% cured from achievement syndrome. I barely have enough time to play games these days, much less grind and waste my time going for pointless shit. Over the last few months I've just played through games and then put them away when I was done, not when I was done achievement hunting. If I had more time I would probably care more, and while I won't say that my enjoyment of getting achievements is gone, but it definitely doesn't matter to me much at all anymore. There are way to many good games out to waste hours and days trying to get a few achievement points.

I like the ones that are like "kill an enemy 200 meters away with the grenade launcher" or the backpunching an elete during a deadly fall and surviving. Those are fun and interesting.

I hate the collectable ones where you gotta find hundreds of trinkets to unlock. Those are just boring as shit. That is what the homeless guy does when he goes through trash cans looking for aluminum cans.

There is a big difference between challenge and just burning the shit out of your time.

I guess my favorite one is getting through Contra without being killed.

Clearing Doom 2 on Nightmare will be difficult but i plan to get that one some day. I don't think there is an actual achievement for that though. If anyone who owns any version of Doom 2 has spare time. I'd love to do a Nightmare run. It's hard to find people who can do that seriously. I already know the maps so there isn't much studying to do, but there will probably be trial and error in finding the most ammo and life efficient routes after the first chapter.

Um, I didn't realize I was confessing my sins lol. I was just saying what games I found fun.

I boosted long ago shitty sports games too, yea. I don't give 2 shits so neither should you. I don't see why you care so much. People are talking about hard to earn cheevos here, not gamerscore and not easily boosted shit; the only one bringing up these things is you. Just relax. No one here is ego boosting.

Few more I have are completing Deathsmiles without using a continue, only a couple characters though. Some harder to use than others.

Beating Omega Five with all characters without dying once. Loved that game. Neat little shmup.

Getting an S rank in DOA4 online. Never could get SS though...

And beating Force Unleashed on Jedi Master difficulty. Fuck you Kazdan Paratus.

I'm just busting your balls really. It's funny to poke at people who take pride in hobbies. Like when those bicyclists got ran over.

I suppose if i had an argument. Infinite or regenerating abilities make certain games easier than others. When you have to work for your life and weapons it makes things more complicated and in my opinion more difficult.

For instance Gradius is harder than Contra because you have to work harder for your power ups and use them more wisely. Dieing with a full arsenal is a huge pain. But beating Contra with the pea shooter is not very hard. Though i suppose walls are harder to dodge than bullets.

Silver Surfer. Good times.

My favorite "hard" games will always be the ID Software ones. From Doom to Quake 2. They were well suited for coop. But beatable alone with enough trial and error (or studying the game). They actually sold thick ass books with complete layouts of all the levels in Doom specifically for people who wanted to beat Nightmare.

The Quake speedron on Speeddemos is sick. Rocket jumping to skip entire portions of levels. So awesome. I loved the freedom of movement. And the magical ability to control your momentum while in mid air..
