View Full Version : Viral Achievements

Ive noticed that lately, there have been a lot of viral achievements... You know, the ones that you get by killing/beating someone who already has it, starts with a few devs then spreads like wildfire over time....

Lately, it was an issue with GTA 4, the achievement description for "Let Sleeping Rockstars Lie" read that you have to kill a developer to get it, so people were weorried they may never be able to meet let alone kill a dev, but nope, turned out to be a standard viral ch, got it on my 1st kill after it was realeased (same with GRAW).

Anyway, I personally kinda dont like these, theyre becoming a trend, just noticed theres so many of them recently with GTA and Grid, arent anything creative anymore. Like the 10,000 kills achievements.

Games that i remember to have viral achievements:
Need For Speed CArbon
Need For Speed Prostreet
Small Arms
Guitar Hero

(any more?)

Shadowrun :D

Here you have to teabag someone with it though, not just kill him.

Personally I think there should be more unique viral achievements like that, I love this idea... Shadowrun :D

Good job on the list. GRAW's viral one is easy to get. Everyone pretty much has it.

Burnout Paradise and Tony Hawk's Project 8 both have virals.
