Achievements and trophies have been an exciting addition to the gaming world, offering additional longevity to many titles and giving players fun new ways to test their skills. Some are just handed out for finishing levels or playing the game to completion, but others provide genuinely difficult and rewarding challenges.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore hunter or not, we’ve all earned a couple of achievements over the years that we’re proud to show off to our friends. Whether you got them for winning a bunch of online matches in your favourite fighting game or beating every boss in Dark Souls, these awards really make you feel like you earned something.
Then, there are the dud achievements, the ones designed purely to make you look stupid or to ‘reward’ you for failing at the game or doing something silly. These were the times when developers decided to have a little giggle at our expense, and even dedicated achievement hunters prefer not to unlock them.
An achievement is meant to be a permanent badge of honour on your online gaming profiles, but most players would prefer to wipe these ones out if they had the chance.
