    The Overlord II one looks horrible, could never do that!

    All the others though, I did not even feel bad, they aren't real, achievements are!

    Quite a good obscure top 5 this week :D
    Crazy and Lazy

    Agreed. Also kind of feel like the achievement for dealing with the bomb in Megaton (Fallout 3) would be good, if you chose to detonate it. Just watching that explosion from Tenpenny Tower... aahhh, those evil karma days...
    Congratulations, you monster.

    I suspected Lollipop Chainsaw and RDR would make the top 5 for this topic. Great list this week.

    Awesome list. I was just looking through my games and achievements and can't think/find any that weren't already mentioned!

    If only Steam achievements were applicable. There's an achievement in Ys 1 where you have to "Measure a goddess in the creepiest way possible". Let's just say you end up forcing said goddess into a corner, whilst you were escorting her out of a dungeon, and then you put on the Mask of Eyes which turns you invisible. And then *insert questionable content*. There's also a similar achievement in Ys 2 for doing almost the same exact thing to a young male child shock
    I am the proud owner of a Silver Crown in Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix on Critical Mode Max Level 1.

    I suspected Harvesting All Little Sisters on BioShock being on this list.

    I didn't feel evil doing the RDR one; it was one of those women who trick you into getting killed, although I survived and tricked her into letting me hogtie her and put her on some train tracks. Needless to say, it cost her her life.

    Kill all the Buffalo made me feel like a bad panda in RDR.

    Dastardly is certainly the worst. It doesn't unlock unless you are looking at the girl when she gets hit by the train. Alas, I had to do it twice. :)

    Missing Overlord II and Lollipop Chainsaw ... and still wish I'd have never started DNF.
    Have you ever dreamed of a midnight in a perfect world?

    Haha, that is what I did. I dragged her for a bit first though.laugh

    When I saw the list, RDR was what I thought off.

    I am not familiar with the other games but I thought of:

    I thought of Skyrim, and what you have to do to get all the Daedric Artifacts......killing friends, family, kids......whatever. To get all of the artifacts.

    Most of Saints Row the Thirds list can find a place here... I'm thinking shipping crates in particular made me feel quite wrong...
    Wow a bee!
