Custom Achievements

Jump to: navigation, search

Custom Achievements are video game achievements for games that don't have them. These achievements are meant to be both challenging and fun to achieve and serve as a way to give older games more replay value while, at the same time, requiring you learn more about the game in the process. They are not meant to be trivial, tedious, obvious, or include something that most players would ordinarily do during a typical play-through.

The web site retroachievements.org has a similar idea, unfortunately, the vast majority of their achievements are neither difficult nor clever (for example, for the game Super Mario Bros., they have an achievement for getting a mushroom, a fire flower, a star man, a 1-up, etc.).
