In an age when getting all the achievements for a game is the only way you can feel you've truly seen everything there is to see, it's all too easy to give up the minute you see a borderline impossible one.
Everybody likes to test themselves, but there certainly comes a point in every player's life where they have to weigh up if spending countless hours doing petty tasks is worth it for that one solitary trophy that seems explicitly made to make your life harder.
While some love the challenge, others go another route to get more taxing achievements, by instead finding ways around the task at hand. Often this involves more or less cheating, by exploiting game mechanics or certain items - but not always.
It's not the most "legit" way to get these trophies, sure, but unless you're using an aimbot in a multiplayer game, you're not exactly ruining anybody's life, just using some unusual tactics to get what you want.
With countless internet forums and discussions centred around the easiest way to accomplish these feats, rest assured that a nefarious brethren are hoping for your success - and for you to let them know any other strats.
