Top 10 Hardest Video Game Achievements

Wait, we have to do what?! Welcome to and today we are counting down our picks for the top ten hardest video game achievements.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the achievements in video games that are the most difficult to unlock across all consoles!

#10: Impossible Boy

“Super Meat Boy” (2010)
The majority of unlockables to be found in this hit indie title can be complete just by ensuring that our favourite meaty hero manages to make it through levels without dying once. The problem is that some of these levels are hard as all hell! The most difficult of these, oddly enough, puts players in the role of Bandage Girl, where they are required to ace all of the Dark World levels in The Cotton Alley chapter, which happen to be fast paced and filled to the brim with deathtraps. And we thought Meat Boy had it bad.

#9: Master

“Star Wars: Battlefront” (2015)
Hope you’re a great shot with that blaster because you’re going to need it! In order to unlock the title of Master, players must fight complete all Battle Missions and conquer Survival mode on the hardest difficulty. This means holding your own against enemy forces across planets like Hoth, Endor and Tatooine while facing wave after wave of Imperial and Rebel soldiers until your side is the only one left standing. Managing to overcome odds like these truly makes you worthy of the rank, just be sure to watch out Darth Vader!

#8: My Kung Fu is Stronger

“Mortal Kombat” (2011)
Gain mastery? Well that doesn’t sound so bad. So how does one go about gaining mastery? We need to earn one hundred victories, perform one hundred fatalities and their subsequent variables, land one hundred and fifty of X-Ray, spill ten thousand pints of blood and go through twenty four hours of game play. Sure, it would take a little while but after a little while it…wait…we have to do that for every single character?! Yep, you have to do everything we just mentioned twenty-eight times with each new character, good luck.

#7: Universal Explorer

“World of Warcraft” (2004-)
Best get those mounts ready because you are going on quite a trek; across the entirety of Azeroth and beyond. In order to be granted the title of Explorer, players not only have to uncover and venture through every region within the Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Kalimdor and Northrend, but also across all areas within the multiple expansion packs like Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria. That’s roughly over a hundred regions to seek out, and considering the kinds of creatures that inhabit this world, this is the furthest thing from a casual stroll.

#6: 7 Day Survivor

“Dead Rising” (2006)
Frank West does not have it easy. Being stuck in mall filled to the brim with the undead is bad enough, but having to slog it out for a full seven days certainly doesn’t help. In order to snag this time-consuming achievement, players first have to unlock Infinity Mode by managing to earn the game’s True Ending. From there, it’s a sandbox nightmare as seven days in-game equates to around fourteen hours for players, non-stop. You’re probably going to have to put a weekend aside in order to complete, here’s hoping that you’ve stocked up on Mega Busters.

#5: Seriously 3.0

“Gears of War 3” (2011)
If can manage to land this one, then you might be just as determined as Marcus Fenix is. First of all you have to reach level one-hundred which is already an ordeal in itself, then it’s onto earning the Onyx Medals. All sixty-five of them. These include but are no way limited to; kill one thousand enemies with a captive, get six thousand executions, spot twelve thousand enemies, revive twelve hundred squad mates, get twenty-five thousand perfect active reloads, win three thousand matches, earn over seven million points in arcade mode, make six thousand kills with every single weapon and complete the campaign on insane difficulty. Wow.

#4: The Bladder of Steel Award

“Rock Band 2” (2008)
This one is all about endurance. Sure, the difficulty settings can be lowered, but the fact you still have to play through eighty four songs back to back without pause and without failure. Whether you excel at vocals, guitar or drums, you had better get your music chops in order because between the long hours and lack of any kind of break, this achievement has been known to be too much for the most seasoned of Rock Band fans. Between having to play through the likes of Judas Priest’s Painkiller and accidentally pressing the pause button, snagging this achievement is the closest we’ll get to a Golden God Award.

#3: Emperor!

“The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unleashed” (2015)
Who wouldn’t want to rule over all citizens of the Empire, enamoured with absolute power and hailed as the greatest in all of Tamriel? Well, good luck, because to do so means you have to outdo thousands of other players in order to earn your throne. Not only does your chosen alliance have to practically control every keep and outpost around Imperial City, but you have to be standing firmly at the top of the leaderboard, meaning you literally have to be the best of the best. Sure, the perks of leadership sound great but gaining that crown is the literal definition of an uphill battle.

#2: Mr. Perfect

“Mega Man 10” (2010)
Those of you that are even casual fans of the Blue Bomber know that avoiding damage in this franchise takes a great amount of skill, especially when it comes to its boss battles. Which makes this achievement especially taxing since you have to clear the entire game without taking a hit. As either Mega Man or Proto Man, players will have to employ a whole lot of jumping and be damn fast with their shots in order to take out enemies. Good luck with that, especially considering how hard the game already is.

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honourable mentions.

Ultimate Battler
“Star Ocean: The Last Hope” (2009)

Hard to the Core
“Dead Space 2” (2011)

World’s Finest
“Injustice: Gods Among Us” (2013)

#1: 90 Day Streak

“World of Guns: Guns Disassembly” (2014)
Are you one of those gamers who happens to be a bit of gun-nut? Well, if that includes delving into the inner machinations of firearms then this might be the title for you, and boy does it come with a hefty challenge. You have to fill in the silhouette of a particular gun, from its hilt, trigger all the way to the smallest of screws, and you have to do this for ninety consecutive days without making a mistake, otherwise all your progress gets sent back to zero. Given the various types of guns you might be presented and how much time you have to put into it, this is an achievement that requires the patience of a saint.
