the gnome was only a problem to look after in the ant lion nest for me was because i dropped him in the water. but i would say the achievements for not letting any buildings get destroyed is the most annoying

I'd say the gold portal achievements. They are horrible.
HL2 & Ep1 are really easy, TF2 comes with time, nothing there can't be boosted anyway.
Haven't played Ep2 (yet, probably going to start it tonight), though the grubs & gnome achieves look annoying.

probably the gold medal challenges and grub ones are the worst. all the others are fun in my opinion.

Since I'm not a big booster with games anymore, I'd say the "With Friends Like These" achievement is the worst. Especially since a lot of the people on my friends list don't have a good taste in video games!

That one was really easy. I just explained to everyone in the lobby that if they added everyone as a friend and played the match we'd get an achievement. I still have one of those guys on my friends list and we play various games together.

Aperture Science is the only annoying achievement on Orange Box in my opinion. None of those others even come close.

Aperture Science, Keep off the Sand, Little Rocket Man

Keep off the Sand has had me to the point that I want to break my 360, you touch even 1 grain of sand and you have to start again _.

For me it's a tie between KEEP OFF THE MOTHERF*CKING SAND (NO, YOU CAN'T F*CKING TOUCH IT AT ALL) or With Friends like these

Yeah, that's what I'm saying... It takes too much effort!

Neighborhood Watch is really annoying, I try but every time I am just a second too late.

Citizen Escort I always seem to have one noob walking and getting sniped or something. Always just one guy -_-

Pacafist I must just not be very good, I always kill one of the stalkers.

I'll agree with Tussell "With Friends Like These" is pretty hard unless you boost it. I don't even have 7 friends that own Orange box out of my entire friends list and i'm not really the sort of person to send random invites out to people i don't know.

1. Grubs
2. Lambda Locator

These ridiculous collect-a-thons are getting really old in games. If developers are going to continue to have these achievements then what you are searching for should serve a legitimate purpose. I thought the audio diaries in BioShock were respectable because they told the story...but having to find the "elemental fruit" in Kameo...or those STUUUUUUUUUUUPID flags in Assassin's Creed is asking way too much. Okay...enough of that...for now...

In the Antlion Lest, you are allowed to leave the Gnome by Alex so that you don't have to have it with you as you do the "extract" portion of the nest. In my opinion, that was one of the most creative, out of the box achievements I have seen in a game, and I loved it.

Having now played through Ep2, I'd say Little Rocket Man wasn't really difficult (only during the car scenes) and it was fun.
The most annoying are therefore Neighbourhood Watch and the Gold Medal acheives

oh, right, the car part. yeah. no, that was easily more annoying than neighbourhood watch. just on the merit of the number of tries it took because the gnome kept either falling out of the car, or falling THROUGH the car.

C'mon, the gnomes achievements, doesn't even compare to the Aperture Science achievements, repeating a chamber about a hundred times to finish it in few steps, few time, few portals, it's the worst achievement of the box

Since I only tried the Portal challenges like... once, I'd have to say Little Rocket Man.

Simply because keeping him in the damn car was endlessly frustrating.

I still don't have that damn achievement. Of course, I only have 700+ GS in this game anyway.

With friends like these was annoying and stupid. I hate pointless achievements like that.

Lambda Locator was fairly annoying too.

And of course the portal challenges annoyed me quite a bit, but I like a good challenge so I wouldn't call the achievement annoying.
