This is a question for the hardcore achievement hunters who dont just play easy 1k games. But have you ever worked endless hours and days on 1 achievement ... so much that your going crazy about it.

Im currently going ape crap on my pillows right now everytime i fail Ninja Gaiden 2 Mission Mode Survival, if my pillows were any thicker i could bust a dent in the wall

I was like that with No Fighting In the War Room on CoD4 and Heart of the Reich on CoDWaW. I actually found Mile High Club to be a really easy level compared to those two. So yeah.

Good luck on your last 30 points on Ninja Gaiden!

the 2 that i can think of off the top of my head are
1. score a million with out dying on geometry wars.
2. finish street fighter 2 without losing a round.

probably the two most annoying achievements i have ever come across and almost snapped my controller in half countless times and to top it all off i never did get them.

Any of the A rank achievements in Ikaruga. I know it's all memorization, but... yeah, enough said.

Any of the speed runs in Mirror's Edge. The fact that you could be doing a perfect run and one slip up makes you start over drives me crazy.

Beijing 2008 - Long Jump Clear 8.96m.

I've got 8.96 two times now.. attempted to many times. The hardest thing about it is that you need perfect speed, perfect take off and perfect angle.

Killing Frenzy on Halo 3. I can only get a 9 killstreak and because of that achievement ive lost like 150exp.

This was my latest achievement that made me crazy..

Unreal Tournament 3 - Beating all the missions on insane by myself. Which I accomplished, (950/1000) and now I'm happy. :)

Keep trying for that 1250/1250 on NG2 and you will be legit! :D

Personally all Cod Campaigns are quite easy if you know what you are doing. If an achievement is making you that frustrated (to the creator of the thread) stop going for it or take a long break. If you look at it from a logical rational view, you will see once you get the achievement, nothing will truly come from it except a few lousy numbers which mean nothing to society or reality.

But might I add, the most ridiculous ahcievement of all time is BiA: Hells Highway. Which it has almost been a year now. Play on Xbox Live on Sept 17th for 50G.

But remember, these are just achievements. Dont strain yourself over them. And if you are an achievement hunter, hopefully it will only be a phase as it was for me.

That isn't hard at all 0_o

Only if you are not good at the game I suppose it would be hard. Though for people to be good at the game, others have to be bad.

That is why people have high ratios and others have low =)

Edit: Sorry for the Double post (to those people who go crazy over it for some stupid reason)

I know this feeling.
For me though it isn't even so much that it's the last in a game, just more that it's one I see in a list that I just suddenly really want to get for no real reason.

Examples being stuff like Teflon in Kane and Lynch or the time trial achievements in Tomb Raider Legend.

For me it was getting the criterion elite licence on Burnout Paradise, not only for the final achievement but also to unlock the special gold and platinum paint finishes. I had one stunt run to do and it must have taken me about a month on and off to get it. After I did get it I was so relieved I didnt go back on my 360 for over a week I was so delirously happy :)

'Guitar Hero' in Guitar Hero 3 make me break a guitar, put a dent in my wall and hurt my knuckles a lot. It took me forever but eventually getting it made it all worthwhile :)

Get Your Boogie on made me angry too because I'd got it before, but then it took me a good 2 hours non-stop playing to re-do it - I kept getting consistent 220/221k scores...

Then there was 'Now, That's Impressive'... and, well, yeah.

08-30-2009, 01:09 PM
Nothing Special - I spent hours and hours on this one achievement expecting it to unlock, spending so much time into one achievement felt like a massive waste of time so I gave up on it. At least I have it now though :)

Oh god, the A.I's arent normal in that game. How the heck do they counter EVERYTHING you do

As quoted from a friend of mine "They counter my Low Punch , They counter My High Kick ,The counter My High Punch, The counter My Low Kick, They counter my grab, They counter my counter, THIS IS B.S"

Rainbow Six: Vegas "Best of the Best" At first I thought 645000 exp wasn't that bad. Now few months later I say that it is little too much. Well for the last month I have played the game for 3-5h a day, and still I just resently got halfway on it. With 600exp for game it just takes really long to get the remaining points, and I'm getting fed up on playing three maps (LVU Campus, Presidio, Dante.) over and over. If I wouldn't play something else every now and then I think I would truly go insane.

This should be such an easy achievement for me, but I just can't do it!

I'd have to say the achievement for reaching Elite rank in Rainbow Six Vegas. Just over half way there now after playing it for ages.

The only other one really is Mile High Club on COD4. Took me about 50 attempts. I was so relieved when I finally go it.

Since so many people are boosting for the leaderboard achievement, I find it impossible to do. Even with boosting it will be terribly hard. :mad:

Going through CoD:WaW on Veteran. The amount of grenades in most levels is bad ... but on the second last level (forget the name) it's insane. One time I was playing and I had to keep moving for about 30 seconds straight because they kept throwing grenades with their magically perfect aim over and over ... must've been 20+ grenades. I'm on the last part and I still can't beat it.

Too many grenades + respawning enemies + nearly every enemy aims for you = me wanting to kill someone. I like the game but I am never buying another CoD game in my life because Veteran is absolutely retarded.

100% on Lego Batman is kinda driving me mad right now. I know I should stop wasting my time, but I've got a guide and 97%, so I'm sticking at it.

That damn ice slide/gates canister is gonna turn me into a Bane-style maniac soon though.

Yeah that one is ridiculous ... but funny enough I somehow managed to get it on my first replay through the level on Free Play. I was pretty relieved about that. Once you get that one there shouldn't be too many problems though, plus once you get that achievement to pop it will be worth it :)

08-31-2009, 03:42 PM
The achievement that drove me to insanity was "Aces High" from Mercenaries 2. It's the one where you have to capture (not kill) all 55 high value targets (HVT).

As if that wasn't already a pain in the balls, the HVT's would often do illogical shit that always got themselves killed. Not to mention how the game is glitched and that after you tie up the HVT, unless he's on your shoulders the whole time, he'll magically die just sitting there. Even if there's no one shooting at you...

Needless to say, this game blew anyways trying to get the full 1000g and it totally made me swear off ever playing another Mercenaries game. Even if Mercs 3 was amazing and won multiple awards for its superb-ness, I'd still say fuck off to the series.

Ok I'm done rambling...

Exemplary on BF nearly drove me insane. Flying the Flag took me 5 days to 10 star. Other than that, Space Giraffe was pretty nuts. Once I finally unlocked Long-Necked Long March, I seriously seen and heard the enemies for a couple of hours afterwards. It was strange.

Two games that will drive me to the brink of my sanity are Virtua Tennis 3 and DOA4. Gold on all academy missions is near impossible and the survival achievements in DOA4 are absolute BS because of the AI.

Just to follow on from my previous post, currently the achievement which is driving me insane, really, is 20 seasons at one club in Football Manager 2006. It's not that the achievement is overly difficult, my problem lies in the games fucked up code. I've had 3 seperate save files where I've been around the 18th and 19th season yet the game decides to always freeze up/crash before I can make it to the 20! There is no way around it so I am forced to begin again. I only have so much patience and it is wearing thin at the moment.

Closing comment, fuck you Football Manager!

How did that achievement drive you insane? That was one of the funnest achievements on that game. It only took me like 2-3 weeks and it wasn't hard. Just a little bit time consuming..

It is not possible to get 10,002 kills in 3 weeks in this game. I'm playing it more than I can stand and I'm getting about 250-300 kills per DAY. Mind you this is while I'm off work for 3 weeks straight so I'm going most of the day. I'll be lucky if I'm done with it by the end of the month (Sept.)...which won't happen because I'm not skipping ODST for this game.

So far I'm at about 5800 kills...I'm over 127 hours into the multiplayer total. A lot of that was the awards, ...but I've tracked my stats since 5001 kills...I've put 10 hours into the last 800 kills...that's 80/hour. And no I don't suck...during this 800 kills my K/D is 1.84

To get 10,002 in 3 weeks at 80 kills/hour would be slightly under 6 hours per day. That's a pretty tough rate to keep for 6 hours a day though. Mind you this is actual gaming time...not the massive amount of time spent waiting for loading screens or switching maps because the game is so horribly designed.

The Ultimate Team online cups are doing my nut. Unbalanced, stat driven game mode which allows a lotta bullshit.

Beating Call of Duty 2 on Veteran took me months to do because I just couldn't stand that game. Beijing 2008 is turning out to be a nightmare too, and I cannot do some of the Portal challenges in The Orange Box. I've done everything except the challenges, I just can't get my head around them (least steps, etc).

The first 2 tries I made it to the hostage, 1st time I didn't know you had to shoot him in the head, I was trying to be extremely careful so I wouldn't mess up.

Second time, I shoot the hostage. >.<

Then it took me 32094785743 tries to get to that part a third time and got it :D

I dont go for achievements that take an insane amout of time. I was going after the level 100 achievement for Gears 2 and I couldn't take it anymore. I dont mind achievements that are really difficult, like beating COD on veteran. I dont really have an achievment on my gamercard that takes a very long time, so I decided to try to go after level 100 and it really just ruined my liking for Gears 2, and it left a bad taste in my mouth for that game. Now if one of my friends wants to play Gears 2 I tell them thats the last game I want to play, and I dont want that to happen to me in another game, so I'm trying to stay away from achievements that take a long time to achieve.

Just to comment on this and give you a pointer. When you get to the room with the hostage you can jump twice toward them to get a closer shot. It helped me get the achievement. Its not as bad as I thought it was. After hearing about it, I thought it was gonna be impossible.

For me it is def. complete the Xtreme tracks on Trials...I need like 2 of them and am completely stuck on them. I'm not even go for the marathon man one...

I was like that with No Fighting In the War Room on CoD4 and Heart of the Reich on CoDWaW. I actually found Mile High Club to be a really easy level compared to those two. So yeah.

Good luck on your last 30 points on Ninja Gaiden!

I actually thought No Fighting in the War Room to be easier than Mile High Club. Watching the Youtube videos for it helped a lot. My second time through I was able to actually make it it with 7 seconds left on the clock, but I didn't die once, which I thought was awesome :).

As for games with hard achievements, I have a ton of them. Halo Wars, Gears 2, Rock Band 2, Left 4 Dead, Red Faction Guerilla(more time consuming that hard IMO) Shadowrun and I guess RE5 is somewhat "hard"... I just keep adding them to the list. I've been working on all of them, but the only one achievement I am making a lot of progress on is my General achievement in Halo Wars. I've been playing some Gears 2 a lot lately, but I'm only a level 49. That's like 7% of the way to level 100. Just ridiculous if you ask me.

Clear all upper floors of TOWER OF LOST SOULS.


You can ask DMF087 about this one. It drove me absolutely freakin' nuts. I honestly couldn't sleep for two nights because of it, and when I did I tossed and turned, and I actually woke up once to find I was playing an imaginary 360 controller haha. I forget how long it took to get that achievement, I just remember I walked away, saying to hell with it, I'll try at a later date, and I think two days later I caved and said fuck it, I'll try it again, and in one shot cleared the thing. I was so happy, but yet more pissed off at the fact that I couldn't do it in the beginning after spending 3 days mastering my custom character, and then out of nowhere completely obliterate the damned Tower.

I remember my 360 controller soaring across the room and slamming against one of my many CD racks...

SIDE NOTE: This is only slightly off topic, but I recently rented Guitar Hero 5. I have no net for two weeks so DMF087 and I were playing it together at my place. One of our favorite bands had a song on there. Demon(s) by Darkest Hour. We played it I don't know how many times in a row, only to get 4 stars. I'll be honest, I was getting pissed off when I saw her stop playing and hear a very faint itchy! behind me. The song literally was mocking me, we kept getting closer but failing. It pissed me off so damned bad I was almost seeing red haha. Pack of sadists I say! I honestly had to go back and play it once more myself to get the 5 stars so I could go to bed.

You know what surprised me is that no one mentioned the game Devil May Cry 4. I had to have put over 100 hours into that game and still don't have 1000. Don't get me wrong that it didn't bother me too much because I thoroughly enjoyed the game. But it was a crazy tedious game!!

I kind of gave up on the game, honestly. I did my one run through, began a second...I dunno, after one play through I grow weary of the games, except DMC1. The achievements in that are absolutely insane haha. I plan to go back to it and try for 1000 at some point though, which is why I still have it. I don't want to part with it anyway since I got the collector's edition, though I think I parted with Jericho and I swore I wouldn't, I'm a fan of Clive Barker. Gotta check. I could get all the achievements if I set my mind to it, it's just the damned tower is what is pissing me off. It's Soulcalibur IV all over again!!!

Level 49 would be 49% of the way to level 100.

Level 49 would be 7% of the way to level 700 (which would be ridiculous!)

On Topic: I think Rolled Over in GTAIV (where you have to get the car to roll more than 5 times from one crash) drove me insane, it took me a stupid amount of time to get. I would always manage to roll 4 times and lose momentum, or hit a lamppost or something. :p

I'm not sure if you're joking or what, but it's not exactly a secret that in terms of total experience required, level 49 is nowhere near 50% of the way to level 100. In terms of actual levels, technically it is, but not in reality.

Platinum Plus in PGR4.

Very few people have it and TBH it took hours. Usually when I was not connected to live or my internet was down I would try to spend some time trying to knock out the last two events that I needed to beat. Finally one day, I was itching to the full 1250 so bad and spent a few hours on it. I told myself if I don't get it in the next 5 tries I'm down for the night, on the 3rd try I ran a bad first lap but for some reason made up time in the last section was was able to beat it by 0.36 Seconds.

There was a lot of fist pumping that night!

Obtain all Treasure Box items in the field. The items you missed may be available at auction houses.

When they say items you missed, it means items you missed in areas that you can no longer visit. And because I missed some accessory items in a few areas that I can still get to I can't get all of the skills on my immortal characters which is keeping me from 4 other achievements. Anyway it's damn annoying. lol

There are many achievements that have rocked my world.

Halo 3 - Two For One - This achievement is something that is just way, way too specific. Killing two people with a single spartan laser shot should be enough. You can get that on any old warthog or even do it in any playlist. But the specifics of having to do it in a ranked playlist, not just any ranked playlist, but a ranked free for all playlist, makes this the most annoying thing ever. Lone Wolves is alright for Halo nooblets, but once you know how to play the game it is the least fun, most annoying, worst playlist of them all. I have killed two people with one spartan laser shot numerous times, but I can never do it in FFA. It's a sick joke that this is worth five gamerscore, it's the least Halo 3 achievement I need, my LW rank is too high to find someone to boost with, and the fact that the way 90% of people play LW is just to camp with shotguns...ugh.

Halo 3 ODST - Vidmaster Endure - I only tried this a couple times. But each time, the same person in the game died when we were at the end of the third set about two hours into it. X_X

Blazblue - 200 Trials - I played...six hundred freaking ranked matches. That means four hundred times this achievement didn't unlock when it should have. It is the only achievement I'm missing on Blazblue, but since it's glitched and the game didn't really have lasting value, I just sold it.

Fable 2 - Dollcatcher - This is just stupid. Let's make an achievement that requires you to collect things. Alright, I'll bite. Let's make an achievement where you have to collect things that require some online mingling. Uhh, go on. Alright, let's make an achievement where you have to collect things that only every individual Fable player can get one of without asking another Fable player for. There's two hero dolls you can get by normal means in the game and the third you get from going to the Fable 2 website. You just have to be lucky in finding someone who will get you the dolls but it seems like no kind of progression towards that has ever happened. Now I don't know much about Fable 2's online, but I think someone with all the dolls could just save their game before giving them to someone, and essentially duplicate items. I don't know why people haven't tried this because boosting it is ridiculous.
