9 Most Pointless Achievements In Video Game History

WC - Achievements and trophies in games are of dubious purpose: at the best of times they add an extra layer of challenge and give players a justifiable reason to spend an extra 12 hours in their favourite titles, with the most prestigious awards, like Arkham City’s Freeflow Perfection 2.0 (ahem – I have that one), saved forever onto one’s profile page, thus ensuring eternal bragging rights over all your jealous friends.

I'll do you one better than the Six Pack achievement for AvP: "With Friends Like These..." for The Orange Box. Granted, you're more likely to run into friends playing TF2 online (provided your friends have the right tastes).
