Although a bit defeatist, its best not to start some of these. Once you get started and the compulsion takes over there can be no stopping. Sadly I dont have any on the list but I did get every gold on Forza 3, after that I couldnt face number 4.

That's a bit depressing, I haven't got a single one of them!
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

I wouldn't worry about it - I write about these things for a living and I've only got the one from Metal Gear Solid 4 out of this list! I would have got the Bladder of Steel Award but I was playing on Expert and after 6 1/2 hours I failed song 82 of 84... DAMN YOU VISIONS!!

Wow, those are some tough trophies! Much respect to anyone who manages those, it will take much skill. Apart from the Mortal Kombat one of course, that's just boring grindyness, games should get fined for trophies like that. :wink:
I attempted the Wipeout trophy but just couldn't handle it, that Zico knows his stuff!

Also considering going for the Hard Core Dead Space 2 trophy one of these days as it should be a really fun challenge. Although I did make one brief attempt a while back, I think after about 45 minutes in I got insty killed by being sliced in half, I was quite shocked, haha.

I have the MGS and the COD:MW ones and got about half way on the Gears 2.0 (I know this is the 3.0 which is just mental) and SF4 trials but they are crazy. Am I proud, not really I have a life and would be more proud if I had fingered Katie Perry without her knowing...

Besides Mario 3 -NES last world 8, now that's fookin tough and you didn't even get a bloody achievement for doing it :cry:

To be honest the SF Trials and Gears 3.0 are just grinders, take an age and include some of the most ridiculous little mission/task objectives..... I'd eat my Xbox before finishing the Gears one....

i was wondering whether mile high club would be on this list. man, was i glad when i finally got through that thing. i'm not sure i ever played it again afterwards ;)

although according to trueachievements.com it's not THAT hard. after all, 23.46% of people on there playing it (~36000) have it.

while I was going for gold standard in GT5, I dropped about 10k places in the global ranking.
people really look at how many trophies youve got, not which ones.
...and no, I still havent got it, got n'ring vettel and couple of other golds left.
Not even going to bother with MGS.

Nope, not a single one. I have platinumed Dead Space and ME2 though and those were rather satisfying.

Did mile high club on my second attempt after being in the pub drinking all day. Probably my greatest gaming achievement.
....needless to say, I had the last laugh!
