What's your most prized Achievement or Trophy of 2008?

Above: Getting bored of these yet? No, us neither. Make your own here.

Mikel Reparaz: Senior PlayStation Editor, GamesRadar US
LittleBigPlanet (PS3)
Trophy: Feel the Love and Crowd Pleaser
Why: "Most Achievements and Trophies are simply based on hitting some milestone or doing something only slightly out of the ordinary, but these two were the only ones that required real work on my part. Feel the Love and Crowd Pleaser come when 10 or more people "Heart" a level you've made and 50 or more play it, respectively, so seeing my work on LBP levels rewarded with the approval of real people was a rare feeling. The kind of feeling that doesn't come from, say, killing a thousand imaginary enemies or finishing a level on Veteran difficulty.

Alex Wiltshire – Deputy Editor, Edge
Game: Braid (360)
Achievement: Closure
Why: "Not because it's something nobody gets, but because it's a nice feeling, solving all the puzzles."

Lizzie Cuevas: Associate Video Editor, GamesRadar US
Game: Fable II (360)
Achievement: The Swinger
Why: "Having not played the first Fable, I had no idea how to have sex in Fable II. It was finally rewarding to get a bunch of villagers to follow me to bed for good, clean, "responsible" (you can't get the achievement without a condom) fun."

Daniel Dawkins – Editor, PSM3
Game: None
Trophy: None
"Because I managed to play games for a month after trophies became active, without claiming one. It’s a game within a game - only playing games that don't have trophies."

Richard Stanton – Staff Writer, Edge
Game: Ninja Gaiden 2 (360)
Achievement: Indomitable Spirit
Why: "I'm not sure 'proud' is the word for continuing 100 times, but it did make me laugh."

Matthew Pellett – Staff Writer, Xbox World 360
Game: Call of Duty: World At War (360)
Achievement: For The Motherland
Why: "It took me two hours just to get past ONE checkpoint in the penultimate level on Veteran difficulty. There's just grenade spam the whole time – very cheap but very hard. After this, the final level was easy in comparison."

So that's ours - what's yours? And has anyone managed Smile on Geometry Wars 2?

    My best was probably Gears 2 'Kick 'em While They're Down" because none of them were staged. Yeah, ALL of them on XboxLIVE.

    Ok first of all Seriously 2.0 isn't really that great. It's an achievement where you can just run through the same achievement over and over game and eventually get it. It's not hard just annoyingly time consuming. Also Mile High Club from COD4 is not hard on veteran. All you have to do is pay attention to what you're doing, Place your flashbangs precisely, and pick up the P90 and Shotgun they will save your ass. Use the P90 on the bottom floor of the plane and the first part of the top level. Then switch to a fully loaded shotgun after throwing a flashbang in the room with the final corridor and go to work. When you get to the hostage situation just bust him in the top of the head and you're home free for victory. It's simple just be patient and only pay attention to the clock if you have to. Ok for me I have a few different ones: Dead Space 1000/1000-That was cool to complete so I could finally rid myself of that game. Mirror's Edge 1000/1000-It was easily one of the best games I went for to complete all the achievements. Even though numerous times I was pissed that I couldn't get the time trials right it was a very engrossing and rewarding experience when I achieved something in Mirror's Edge. It was a love/hate relationship, but l fall to the initial love of the game more than hate. Anyone who hasn't played Mirror's Edge get your broke ass off the couch and rent it or buy it. Whatever floats your boat, but you need to play it. Call of Duty:World at War 1000/1000-For the simple fact the game is a piece of annoying excrement it was a great feeling when I destroyed Heart of the Reich. All else was quite easy in that game minus the stupid useless prestige achievements that I didn't waste a minute on. Since COD:WaW multiplayer is broken with the prey and spray game play and all the stupid level glitches, It blows. Mega Man 9-Although I haven't completed all the achievements-Been too busy trying to get a top score on the leaderboard for most screens cleared on Endless Attack-I can't deny that getting the achievements for that game is kick ass. For the simple fact that the Blue Bomber is one of the best video game characters of all time. Last, Best Hope for Humanity (Fallout 3)- By reaching the highest level in the game with good karma was cool. It kind of shows that I'm not a villainous, malicious prick. There are many great achievements. Some hard some that come off straight-forwardly annoying I.E. Seriously 2.0 they do make a game that much more enticing.
