Just as the title says. The saddest achievements (in the Xbox sense) you've ever, uhm, achieved. For me, the saddest is Little Rocket Man in Half-Life 2 Episode 2. I spent all that time in the game escorting and protecting that little garden gnome. He became like a friend to me, a stalwart companion to both Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance. And then, out of some twisted whim, the "good" doctor throws wee gnomey into the rocket's payload area and closes the door. I was devastated. All that time and effort keeping my gnome nearby and safe, and just like that he's gone. I almost cried. [crying] What achievements have made you sad?

Guitar Hero 2 -- The Long Road Ahead -> Fail a song on easy, 0 points

Scratch that, you actually get 10 points for flailing wildly on the strum bar.

Good Lord, you actually did that ?! My respect :) After reading this hilarious review I decided to never ever even attempt this [grin]

I never really had a thing in a video game that made me sad. Well, maybe when I played Deus-Ex back then, and suddendly realised that I reached the end of the game :( But then I just played it again from the beginning... ;)

I remember one thing that happened to me in Sims 2 that kind of made me sad.

I had 4 Sims, a mom, a dad, a little boy and a teenage daughter.

One day, the dad was cooking something, and the house went on fire. The dad ran to the phone, but he couldn't get it because a bed was blocking it.

Eventually, the dad and the teenage daughter burnt to a crisp.

The mother was so depressed by the loss of her husband and daughter, she wouldn't even feed her son. Eventually, they took the boy away from her. Finally, the mother sim died of depression.

And that was the end of my Sim family... [sad]

Anyone remember the old game Tin Star? Anyone?

Okay, I was eleven years old when I was playing Tin Star. In case you're unaware, it was a cursor-based shoot-em-up in which the player (a robot cowboy -- awesome) becomes sheriff and sets out to rid the town of bad guys. You get money for every kill, and at the very end of the game, you have a little talk with the mayor's daughter. If you have enough money at that point, well she rides off in the sunset with you, but if you don't, then the gold-digging bitch prances off on her own.


I was eleven years old. Guess which ending I got.
