10 Bizarre Video Game Achievements You Didn't See Coming


Video game achievements come in all sizes, challenges, and genres. Some are a badge of honour, some are easy to predict, and some are a little embarrassing to pin to your gamer profile.

In this list we’ll be looking at achievements that weren’t just wildly left of field, they also came out of nowhere. Whether for doing something the game didn’t expect you to, something you didn’t even know was possible, or just judgement for your own general ratbaggery, obtaining any of these achievements set you apart from the average gamer.

We’re just not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing so I’ll leave it up to you to decide.


10. Poop Master - Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection

Zoo Tycoon

In Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection you’ll be taking care of hundreds of animals in the zoo of your dreams, which all sounds pretty luxurious but of course with many animals comes many poops.

Now, the reason I’m not beating around the bush using the word ‘poop’ here is that it pertains to the very achievement we’ll be discussing and that is the Poop Master achievement. Likely not an achievement you’d be working toward nor boasting about to your friends, this one is granted once you clear up no less than 1,000 pieces of poop. Unless you’re following a guide for this one, and yes there actually is a recommended method, you likely just stumbled upon this stinky achievement, gave yourself a quiet pat on the back, and went on managing your sick zoo.

Congrats, I think. And thanks for the bizarre kudos, developers.
