  • Posted on 10 September 21 at 22:04
    We've talked about grinds, luck, and even online achievements, but lets strip it back a little this time — which skill-based achievements out there are simply some of the most straight-up difficult to unlock?

    Disappointed at the lack of Milo's Quest in this.

    I mean the list is good but is really lacking in hard racing games in general.

    Super meat Boy wasn´t very challenging! Not super easy either but I really doubt that game should have been on the list. For example Earthworm Jim or Battlezone is much harder. Battlezone...

    Stopped reading as soon as the OP said Tempest was garbage. Tempest is one of, if not the best arcade games ever made. The ports were even better, with Nuon arguably getting the best port.

    Definitely not a garbage game, but I would love to hear the author's reason for saying it is garbage but then providing no actual reason as to why.

    I thought the Revengeance VR missions were much worse than the Revengeance S-ranks. Revengeance difficulty is only the second-hardest (Very Hard actually is the most difficult for a reason or two) and you could also buy the FOX Blade if you were so inclined. Nothing to save you for the VR missions, though. 20 base game, and 30 (somewhat easier) DLC ones.

    Imagine if they had an achievement for getting all the titles, though. Woof.
    I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.

    Although it is the only one I don't have. So sure. Why not.

    To be fair, MCC had checkpoint sharing in the beginning and that was definitely abused. I did it too laugh

    Here's an interesting twist for rare, difficult achievements.

    Child of EdenSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Child of Eden worth 983 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement


    Look at the unlock percentages on the right. Somehow, this achievement is rarer amongst achievement hunters than Xbox as a whole. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

    This list is a bit all over the place in terms of difficulty. There are absolutely games like Trackmania Turbo, Chariot, and Velocity 2X that I would rank above many of these in terms of difficulty. Some of these are definitely the hardest though. Like deathsmiles and crypt of the necrodancer are definitely harder than what I just listed.
