There’s something about those little trophies and achievements that keep us coming back, sometimes even when the game is past the point of being fun. Have you ever played a terrible game, just to get the achievements? Most of these games on this list are great, and their achievements are all super-tough. Some of them are more of a grind, some of them are just straight-up nearly impossible… Many are a mix of both. Let us know how many of these you’ve unlocked, and no fibbing.
8. My Kung Fu Is Stronger from Mortal Kombat (2011)
This is one of those achievements that’s just a matter of grinding it out. You’ll have to complete the following:
- Win 100 fights
- Complete 100 fatalities
- Perform 150 x-rays
- Spill 10,000 liters of blood
Doesn’t sound too crazy, right? Well, you’ve got to do it for each of the 28 fighters in this game. On top of that, you’ve got to play each character for a total of 24 hours. So, this achievement is going to take an absolute minimum of 672 hours to earn, assuming that you’re able to complete each fighter’s tasks in 24 hours. On the plus side, you don’t need to do this for the DLC characters.
7. Seriously 3.0 from Gears of War 3
This is a challenging achievement for sure, but a lot of it just involves grinding away those kills. The list of tasks you’ve got to complete to unlock this achievement is too long to list here, but essentially you’ve got to reach level 100 and earn every Onyx medal. Some of them you’ll unlock easily just by playing the game a lot, others will require you to go out of your way – far, far out of your way, to achieve them.
