5 Gaming Achievements To Be Embarrassed About

WC writes: 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. (Batman: Arkham City, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

"Adam Wake is a relatively hidden gem from 2011. I thought it was game of the year. As a fan of Twin Peaks, The Twilight Zone and Stephen King, it was for me like entering the genre of horror suspense itself"

Who the f*** is Adam Wake?

OT: And what about that achievement in Lollipop where you have to look up Juliets skirt. I still haven't done it, haha it just seems weird.

Lol the dude got busted :P
32froshes  +   818d ago
Oh, I got the Lollipop Chainsaw one! That should definitely have been on the list though.
FarCryLover182  +   818d ago
It was even 2010, not 2011. Heh.
ado908  +   818d ago
It's a typo calm down.
SockeyBoy  +   818d ago
Its alright man, I wasn't too serious.

How does one confuse L with D? Pretty far away on the keyboard to be a typo....

also/2010 =/= 2011

muhuhuhu/ Really though everyone is just joking, it's not like you simply lied about playing it...right?....RIGHT!?
ado908  +   817d ago
Are people really being serious right now? You people get serious for no damn reason. Really 11 dislikes? JamieLee umm it's a typo because he misclicked that's why it's a typo. How does he have "Alan Wake" as a title in one place and than Adam wake in the sentence? It's obviously a typo. I often don't look at the keyboard when Im typing so you would be surprised how many words I misclicked. Even if you people believe he purposely wrote "Adam" wake what is that suppose to mean necessarily? It's a typo and people stop getting your panties up in the bunch. You are grown *** men so if a little comment like it's a typo hurts you so much than I feel sorry for you and who ever gave birth to you.
BlackTar187  +   817d ago
seriously people need help when they get all bent out of shape over a typo. He spelt it wrong all creditability lost. Maybe someday the internet will grow up but its not today.
Irishguy95  +   817d ago
We were clearly joking
ado908  +   817d ago
Irishguy the 12 disagree's kinda disproves what you said. Apparently people take this to heart. Not referring to you tho.
ShinMaster  +   817d ago
What is wrong with you?
First of all, good sir, you're the one going crazy and to extreme lengths to defend this LIE . . . sorry I meant typo :P
So I suggest you calm down.

* Getting ALaN mixed with ADaM.
* Getting 2010 mixed with 2011.
* There was nothing "hidden" about it. It was popular on the interwebz (lol)

That's just too big of an error to be a simple typo.

Hmm... Adam Wake.

That must be what Mr. Scratch is calling himself.

alan wake
xstreetsweeperx  +   817d ago
Adam wake....... is the writer that was unsuccessful and will always live in the shadow of alan, his brother.
stuntman_mike  +   817d ago
I liked Abraham Wake.

Well.....this article was pointless.

And look, one example per page for a FIVE EXAMPLES LIST.
glennco  +   818d ago
saved me a click, thanks
Cerberus29  +   817d ago
Yeah that's a few wasted minutes of my life I'll never get back...
Spydiggity  +   817d ago
yep, closed the page when i realized i'd have to click to another page just to see number 4.
Eyeco  +   817d ago
He says..

"I didn’t like Resident Evil 5 because I was rubbish at it. I just could not stay alive as I continuously ran out of ammo before being cornered and dispatched with by hordes of Majini."

Resident Evil 5 was the easiest RE game you can play the game by simply avoiding 60% of the enemies, as well as ammo and health lurking around every corner, seriously how do you "run out" of ammo in that game, try playing Code Veronica X for a challenging survival horror
PooEgg  +   817d ago
I don't mind lists when they stay contained to 1 or 2 webpages, but 1 example per page is obvious click bait.

This article sucks. I thought it was going to be about achievements that you'd have to spend hours upon hours on end to earn. Instead it's just the ramblings of a whiny gamer.
strange1986  +   818d ago
How is he whiny? The article seems pretty lighthearted to me.

I like the article, but it is SO poorly written!!!
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   818d ago
Also, you can change the date on your PS3/360 to Valentine's Day, Christmas, New Year's, etc...in order to get the Storyteller Achievement in Arkham City.

Who is this idiot?
Philoctetes  +   817d ago
This is exactly what I did, but let's be honest -- changing your time/date settings and reloading your game over and over again 12 times just to get a trophy is sort of embarassing in itself.
The_Devil_Hunter  +   817d ago
Not as embarrassing as leaving your PS3 on all night to achieve My Kung-Fu is stronger....
i still havent gotten it either.
Redgehammer  +   818d ago
Glad i didnt read it, based upon all the previous comments. I would like to interject my opinion here, and state that confidence goes a long way to neutralize embarrassment.
A7XEric  +   817d ago
No Ninja Gaiden 2 achievement? Really?
Rifkens  +   817d ago
Orgy achievement on Fable
Lazyeye79  +   817d ago
All of the achievements from the Hannah Montana game.
tigertron  +   817d ago
My favourite trophy is from Dead Space Extraction where I got one for looking at Lexine's ass. Admiring the view, McNeil?
Maddens Raiders  +   817d ago
Another dumbass article about essentially....nothing. Yay.

Well I enjoyed it. So there.
Phil32  +   817d ago
I dislike lists that spread each entry across a different page.
J5Feedback  +   817d ago
There's an achievement in Bully for making out with a guy (as Jimmy Hopkins). Not even an honorable mention?
