The Gnome achievement was fun.

Neighborhood Watch is annoying.

Aperture Science is near impossible.

Pretty much all of the tf2 achievements. Don't get me wrong, i absolutely love this game and play it often on pc, but man, the console version is so downgraded and ridiculous...

Did the Portal Challenges within 2 nights with my only trouble on Chamber 17 (I think) with minimum steps. I made it bang on. 2 1/2 hours of slogging for that; but the rest were OK. Thank fully Portal is a game I've played a lot :P.

As for the Ant lion beach achievement, I got that first go. I didn't quite see the fuss? I saved just before you start, and saved every couple of steps or so. I even came very close (I personally thought I had) to standing on the sand on an area bordering grassland. But sure enough it popped once I got to the other side.

BUT. The defence of all buildings one? I haven't got round to it on the 360. But oh jeez. THAT is going to give me pains. Not even kidding. God damn.

Neighborhood Watch and Aperture Science. I hate achievements that are based on timing and these two are perfect examples of why I hate those types of achievements.

Neighborhood Watch really sucked but once you get the rhythm down and get past the 6th, 7th, and 8th striders it's not that bad. This was the only Half Life achievement I used cheats to get because it was so damn frustrating.

Aperature Science is nothing more than pure frustration because the achievement was designed to be done with a keyboard and mouse rather than with a console controller. It doesn't help that all of the videos on YouTube showing you how to do the test chambers were also all done on a PC, so you have people doing maneuvers that are virtually impossible to pull off on an Xbox. I've been working on it for days and I'm only about halfway there.

Little Rocket Man was actually easier than I was expecting. The only truly difficult part was the sequence with the helicopter.

With Friends Like These isn't hard but it's a pain in the ass to try and find 7 other people to play the game with.

I'm also not looking forward to Hardcore. 1000 kills in a game I have no interest in playing.

Probably the gold medal in Portal. Even if you're using a cheating method, it's annoying.

Def. Aperture Science. It's not THAT hard, you can use the "use cheat, save game, load new game, load save game" glitch, video guides and save as often as you want, but the step challenges are really annoying since it sometime counts 1/5 steps as like 20000 steps >.< The time trials are pretty hard too

With 99 achievements worth the usual 1k points, it's easy for me...all of them. Why would they have so many, worth so little? Don't get me wrong, I had the game on my PC and 360 and loved it. It's just silly to have that many.

i really liked there being so many achievements it kept me busy but i blew through hl2 because i enjoyed it so much. but once i finished portal and tried to do the challenges, what a joke. 10 steps? it takes 5 to leave the elevator! Aperture Science one of the most pain the ass achievements out there.

Only have the episode 2 and 2 TF2 achievements left, but I'd say that the most annoying ones are:

"With Friends Like these"
I don't even have 7 friends with the game, and I don't want to spam out friend requests to random people.

"Hardcore"
I don't really like TF2 that much (unbalanced teams get on my nerves so much) so I don't really have the patience to do this - only have around 430 kills.

With Friends Like These
Aperture Science was hard, but it felt really good to get it, especially since it was one of the few Orange Box achievements that cheating just wouldn't help you with. If you took the five extra seconds to put in that cheat code, the time was over.
Defense of the Armament was hard compared to the rest of the achievements in the game, but was nothing compared to, say, protecting the pump truck in Prototype, or even protecting Ashley in Resident Evil 4 on Professional.
The Gnome achievement was amazing.
With Friends Like These was just pure frustration. Anytime you have to work with people to get an achievement, you will be frustrated. It's just human nature to err, and to judge other people's errors more critically than your own. I hated every person who helped me get this achievement, and I'm sure that they hated me.
