You know what it is like… you spend hours playing your favourite game and up pops another achievement, reminding you of just what a master you have become at defending the planet, driving fast cars or just running around collecting things.
However, some achievements are nothing to brag about. Here are a some examples…
5. Red Dead Redemption: Lemming Award
One of my favourite past times is to fire off cannons from the walls of El Presidio, play land grab at Armadillo or just gallop around the sierra sitting on my trusty ass. During my western odyssey I’ve seen a few achievements come and go, but non odder than the Lemming Award.
It happened one day while I was jumping across roof tops in Blackwater chasing an Xbox Live rival. Unfortunately, I got too excited and leapt to where no building existed before falling to my doom and lying in a crumpled heap in front of my nemesis.
I remember hearing what sounded like an infant’s voice laughing at my geriatric level of gaming incompetence. As I waited to respawn, an achievement popped informing me that I had died 50 times falling off tall buildings, rocky ridges and fort walls. Mmmm.
