7) Celebrity Status! (Burnout: Revenge) â€" Online Superstar! Bagged by getting a Clip in the Top 20 Downloads (65G)

This is one of the few achievements that you really don't have an active role in completing. All you can do is record your most badass and/or amazing clip, share it, and… hope that other people find it really great too. Sure, you can embarrass yourself and ask your friends to download it, create fake accounts just to tediously crank up your own numbers, or beg anonymous strangers on the internet, but all of those options are really, really pathetic. Then again, better to be pathetic with an extra 65G than just plain old pathetic.


6) Mile High Club (CoD4: MW) â€" Sky dive to safety on Veteran difficulty (20G)

This mission flies by so quickly you'll get plenty of chances to fail it miserably. You have one minute to gun your way through a plane filled with terrorists and rescue an anonymous VIP â€" what ensues is pure chaos, no matter how skilled you are. The only way to complete the mission successfully is to perform it like a perfectly-choreographed ballet: every single move you make counts, everything has to be timed perfectly, and â€" for the love of God â€" turn your cell phone off, it screws with the pilot's equipment. As do all those flash grenades, btw.

5) Seriously 2.0 (Gears of War 2) - Kill 100,000 enemies (50G)

'Seriously' in Gears of War was a pretty tough achievement â€" 10,000 kills is a hefty task for even the most adept cow-necked future soldier. When they decided to multiply that number by 10 for Gears of War 2… well, gamers started praying for an actual alien apocalypse to end the world before Gears of War 3 came out and 'Seriously 3.0' had us all slogging towards a million kills. 100,000 kills isn't challenging â€" it's just an insane number to ask for. The internet has clocked the shortest required time for this challenge at about a full day with no breaks. Too bad 24's off the air… this could have been Jack Bauer's greatest challenge yet.
