    Bring all your skills and triple them. Then you may be in with a chance (but probably not)

    These are definitely some pretty tough achievements to get. I congratulate those who have them.

    I think my personal most difficult achievement that I've earned was:

    Black Knight SwordSunny side upThe Sunny side up achievement in Black Knight Sword worth 108 pointsFinish the game without ever entering the shop


    The game was fairly tough to do without dying and upgrading but the checkpoints were generous. That last boss though angry. Then again, I'm not very good at the tough stuff. Not much of a twitch gamer. So it's probably a lot easier for others.

    I know music games are out, but how about beating "Through The Fire and Flames" from GH3 or "Bloody Feet" from GH: Smash Hits (and I know there are countless others which are horrible too).

    Child of Eden is literally EASY. Come on.

    The only ones that belong anywhere near this are Deathsmiles (the JP version has a harder achievement too, please do your research) and Cloudberry, maybe Robotron.

    Where are Asteroids Deluxe and Tempest? Where's Dustforce? Where's Dodonpachi Resurrection? This is a joke.

    On a serious note, I just looked through all of my achievements and it seems as if most of my "difficult" ones are just grindy, CEO in Syndicate, Madman in The Witcher 2, and Foxiest of the Hounds in Deus Ex are all just time commitments.

It certainly took me more than 2 hours mind, hah, learning the maps and spawn point was a huge time sink. I think Glutton For Punishment in FEAR Files was possibly the more difficult of the two.

    I couldn't justify spending any more time on Mutant Storm attempting that achievement to just keep failing, haha.

    There was a reason that I never got any of these games.

    It's and UTTER travesty that this achievement got left out, just like how it's an UTTER travesty that Michael McGillicutty can't go by Joe Henning.

    Knights ContractBlood SpilledThe Blood Spilled achievement in Knights Contract worth 15 pointsDefeat an enemy
