hey guys, i was just wondering. which gaming company in your mind have the best and/or worst achievements. Things like how difficult the achievements are to get, confusing, time-consuming, requirement of friends, etc.

Best: Rockstar games (Midnight Club, GTA, etc.)
Worst: EA Sports ( Madden, NHL)

IMO

Best: Rockstar Games (GTA:IV, Red Dead Redemption)

Worst: Atari / Terminal Reality (Ghostbusters)
EA Sports (NHL11)

All three I listed in the worst was because of unobtainable achievements that are impossible to unlock :mad:

The annual x360a achievement awards cover this territory pretty.

Best: Valve, hands down. I think Left 4 Dead 2 is the only game ever with an achievement list to get a full 100 in a x360a review, correct me if I'm wrong. Portal 2 is fantastic and the Orange Box is legendary.

Worst: just about everyone else that publishes out of EA that is not Valve or Bioware.

Or Atari. Or Capcom. They're pretty awful too.

I don't want to go off topic but the HUT playoff achievement is the one that can be a problem. Some people are locked out of the payoffs after the Jan 1st/2011 playoffs. Even some of the top 100 aren't making it. On the other hand there are players that make it now that aren't even playing online.

EA is aware of the problem but won't fix it. They gave me a $20 gift card and said they would patch it. That was 3 months ago. It's all over the EA HUT Forums.

I can't really say which one does it best, Codemasters, Valve are pretty good but for worst it has to be CAPCOM or EA SPORTS.

I'm going to add my vote for Valve having the best lists.

Capcom does have the worst lists, just due to the insane difficulty spread (though Dead Rising has what I usually hold up as an ideal for variety), but I'm not sure what people expect from achievement lists in sports games. They are designed for an audience that just doesn't care about achievements.

I'll go with Valve as the best as well. One of the reasons I enjoy the L4D series so much i due to the fact that so many of the achievements are just fun to get.

EA sports are much better than they used to be, but still pretty bad. I'll go with Tecmo or Capcom as the worst.

Best achievements are L4D game's and Fallout 3 and Oblivion.
Worst are EA sports with there random throw in achievements that they have.

The best I can think of is Bethesda(Fallout,Oblivion) and the worst is just EA....

The worst is by no means EA. Most of the EA sports games have had achievements that fit into their games well (Most people who play NHL play it year round and the achievements make sense for THOSE PEOPLE, not the achievement hunters). On top of this, you all easily forget companies that EA publishes for. Recently they've published Alice Madness Returns, Crysis 2, BulletStorm, and Dead Space 2. Are they the best lists? God no, but the worst? Far from it. Worst is Capcom in my opinion, Lost Planet being a big reason. The best is 2k, as ever 2k game I've played I've enjoyed getting achievements for (Barring Darkness).

BioWare Best I think...Valve worst

Never realy thought about this before. I guess the best I would go with,
Rockstar or Bethesda, both companies games give you achievments for general story progresion while given other achievments for going out your way to do something extra.

The worst, I would say EA but in regards to games like FIFA the achievments have got much better. So i think i will have to go with,
Capcom, dont think I have played a Capcom game that has a decants list.

Best: Valve or Bungie. Both make fun achievements
Worst: Capcom. Their achievements are impossible.

I also seem to think that maybe it's just EA overall? i don't know, because any other EA games i have is the Need for Speed and the achievements can be annoying at times ( especially with the online one) but again, maybe that's just me..

Valve for best, although i enjoyed the ORIGINAL borderlands achievements.

Ea has to be the worse due to the online pass shit, then they shut down the servers.. with achivements that are online

BEST to me is Valve b/c of L4D 1 & 2. Those acheivements were PERFECTLY balanced between challenging but can do

Worst is Capcom IMO or EA for some of their awful achievements.

Capcom certainly has some of the most difficult achievements but I wouldn't label them as having the "worst" achievements because of this, that honor would likely go to EA Sports for having glitchy, poorly thought out (NHL 08 & NBA Live 07 stand out for this), badly supported and ultimately discontinued achievements.

Best I would say is Rockstar or Valve.

Can we say that EA is the worst because if you don't do the online achievements for that game ...
Too late the server closed down !

Fuck!

Capcom because they don't get achievements
