Bladder of steel. That brought back my most saddening moment ever. I was on the last song. the song had almost ended, like two seconds away, and the power went out. First sadness, then unrivaled fury!

Author Archuleta55 ( ago)
What about The Stanley Parable's "Go Outside" Achievement? Don't play the game for 5 years in real time. Sure you can cheat your way to get it, but I'm still waiting to hear someone getting it legitimately

Author Pug Loaf ( ago)
Holy crap. You think Worlds Finest on Injustice is hard??.

I still didn't get the Achievment's point for my 20 year of gaming experience.I dont even trying to do 'complete all the collectibles and finish the game at %100' thing.I just finishing the main quest line.If i like the game at the end,starting the game again and finishing one more time(I did finish gta IV 4 times).Can someone tell me the actual point of this?

Author WorldWalker128 ( ago)
I like the Dead Space Series for the most part, but those Hard Core Achievements? Nope. If you did it, I salute you, but I lack the motivation, the patience and the skill to manage that. Just beating the last boss in 2 on Zealot took me close to two hours to pull off, and lots of dying, not to mention all the deaths just in regular game-play due to my poor strategy, lousy(panicked) aim, or just bad luck.

Author Tyler Holston ( ago)
Universal Explorer is not hard. With all the flying mounts you can fly over every zone. If you wanted to include a WoW achievement why not do one of the insane exalted achievements? These make you grind for at least a month for each reputation group. I could knock out Universal Explorer in 14 hours tops. One of those exalted achievees... I don't have that kind of time

Author Lapzidorus ( ago)
When I saw this list, I thought of the "Master Slicer's Trophy" in Demons Souls.  I can tell, though, that it probably pales in comparison to some of these.  The "90 Day Assembly" achievement, in particular, seems to literally mean business.

Author Yolo Dude ( ago)
I decided to do this and one took me 2 weeks for 3 achievements it was epic but...

That was my school holidays

Author John Wie ( ago)
I actually hate american pronounciation

Author ChiccoGames ! ( ago)
1:40 instead of saying number 8, he says number 5

Author Drumming Ginger ( ago)
What about dodging 200 lightning bolts in a row in the Thunder Plains on Final Fantasy X? I think that definetly should have been in the video.

Author Lj Cutey ( ago)
#3 looks like the hardest won.

Author Banana ( ago)
I guess all of these achievements can be beaten by jesus.

Author Red_Milk ( ago)
28 X 4 = 112

Author Eddy De Leon ( ago)
I think that no mans sky is the hardest as it takes around 20 years to explore the whole thing

Author Isaac Gonzales ( ago)
I have the mortal combat 9 one I got it on accident😂

Author RN Jesus ( ago)
I unlocked Master on Battlefront

I am a god.
took me 2 days

Author Jason Bowman ( ago)
Lol, he said "number 5, my kung fu is stronger", and it's number 8 on the countdown. I was watching the video and Darth Vader is standing there talking shit, then it cuts to Mortal Kombat at the #8 spot on the list and I was thinking, hold on, I'm pretty sure the video has only been on for like 2 minutes, did I miss something? I had to rewind it a few times to make sure, lol.

Rock band for life!!!!!!

Author Cody Mayo ( ago)
Other achievements that could have made the list.

Student of History - Destiny: Rise of Iron. Attune all Iron Lord Artifacts. You can only get one a week, and it's between a choice of three every week, so you could end up being offered duplicates of ones you already have.

Benevolent Leader - Fallout 4 Base Game. Reach Maximum Happiness in a large settlement. Good luck getting it without a guide. Pro-tip - don't use Sanctuary Hills for it.

Attack on Highlander - Blazblue Chronophantasma. Defeat Highlander Assault Mode with all characters. There are several characters in this game that have their main gimmick rendered completely useless in this mode. (Among others, Ragna's health regeneration, Tager and Bullet's grabs, Amane's chip damage, and Hakumen's counters)

Out of Sight/I am the Law - Blazblue Chronophantasma/Blazblue Chronophantasma EXTEND. Land all of Tsubaki's "D" version special attacks in a single combo. Tsubaki has five attacks that need to connect to get this trophy. They all need to be in the same combo, and two of them are air attacks. Good luck.

Nearly every achievement in Skullgirls due to their cryptic nature. (Even the Platinum Trophy tells you jack shit about how to earn it - where most games are content with "Earn all trophies", Skullgirls has "Legend tells of an ancient artifact that can grant a woman's wish...")

Author mahboi139 ( ago)
You guys are a joke, but I liked this video because I like that part where you talk about the mk9 achievement that I decided not to hunt.

Author Starman Gaming ( ago)
The most impossible achievement for me would be to get all locations in FNV Ultimate Edition for XBOX 360. There are two locations that are impossible to get and can't enter without a glitch

Author Samantha Bender ( ago)
l4d2 a spittle help from my friend is hard

Author krbgfx ( ago)
well then, since the 90 day gun game was number one, I have a harder game in mind... JFK: Reloaded. To unlock the achievement/beat the game, you have to fire the rifle the exact way Oswald did in 1963. i mean exactly, and the game takes into account wind direction, velocity, ect. i do not know of anyone (including the game makers) who has beat this achievement...

Author nimota ranger ( ago)
well, i managed to hold my diarrhea for 1 week....consider it an achievement...

Author TheMetaGamer ( ago)
Did they even consider the STOP!!! achievement from Afterbirth +?

Author dead0blivion ( ago)
I'm sorry... did you say the EXPLORER achievement for WoW is the hardest? the achievement where you just fly to achieve with ease?
Yeaaaaah no. Loremaster is far harder to achieve as you must complete EVERY quest in every zone.

Author Gamers Republic ( ago)
The emperor achievement was a bitch to get I damn near quit trying

Author kitty wars ( ago)

Author Toby K ( ago)
trimmed competionist cape in runescape
