A reason to devote hours towards earning an achievement or trophy may not exist (outside of personal pride), but when a game isn’t challenging enough, such goals are there to test players. At times, it can be quite fun to adopt them as a sort of unofficial secondary objective.
Then there are the nasty ones. The kind that demand the player to waste hours upon hours of their precious time to perform some of the most irritating and exhausting objectives possible.
Even triple-A games are no exception. The developers don’t just want you to buy and enjoy their game, they want you to live, sleep and breathe it. Friends, family, relationships, job - throw them out of the window, because they will only weigh you down.
Racking up an abundance of kills, melee weapon only-runs, no-damage game completions - expect only the most relentless, unforgiving ones to appear in this list of near-impossible achievements in gaming.
Are there any others worthy of a place in the list? Did you defy all logic and chance to bag any of these? Share your stories in the comments below!
