    I suspected Harvesting All Little Sisters on BioShock being on this list.
    Agreed. Expected this to be number one, easily.
    I saw a girl crying while buying tampons. Must be going through a rough period in her life.

    One of the more creative top 5's in a while. I have 4/5 of these. :)

    ...so I would have got an achievement for an (un?)intentional up skirt in Lollypop Chainsaw, but I got nothing for seeing Trevor's schlong when he wakes atop Mount Chiliad wearing nothing but a short dress in GTAV? What is seen cannot be unseen, my eyes, my eyes! No fair!
    I can haz achievement?

    Dastardly in Red Dead Redemption was probably one of the most fun achievements I've got. Especially because my lovely wife was making comments... She didn't enjoy watching me do this laugh

    As much as I hate to give CoD credit for anything, the No Russian mission in Modern Warfare 2 was pretty brutal the first time playing it. It was bad enough that the first part of the mission was removed from the game in Russia.
    Remove the spoiler!! wink

    That sequence could be completely skipped through a setting that you had to choose before the game began. My wife also mentioned this, but I would have been horrified if this had been tied to an achievement. (Unless maybe it's for going through without harming a civilian.) But still, forcing someone to act through that scene for an achievement--even by being a pacifist--would be wrong.

    In my mind, that level was completely unnecessary, and only included to cause controversy.

    It reminded me of Postal, and that was plenty.
    It's a 5 year old game. By now I figure most people that wanted to play it already did and those that haven't probably won't. Even if they do, it's probably just for Achievements.

    And yeah, strangely enough you don't even have to play that mission on Veteran. But I assume the Achievement list was made before the controversy so it's odd that it wasn't required for the Veteran Achievement.

    I'm proud to say that, apart from the South Park one(as I haven't player SoT), I have all of those achievements :D
