Game Achievements

 I don't know why, but sometimes I get the urge to attempt to get all the achievements in a game, and once I start it, it's honestly really hard to stop. 

A couple weeks ago, I started playing The Henry Stickmin Collection. As I played it more, a part of me just refused to stop playing until I got all the endings and bios. So, I spent multiple days to get some badges on my Steam profile. Throughout the run, it was really hard to just stop.

Just take a look at my activity from July 8th to the 3rd of August:

I basically got 3/4 of the game's achievements in 4 days! Keep in mind that those four days, were nothing but The Henry Stickmin Collection, that's literally the ONLY thing I did.

But it's not just Henry Stickmin, I did the same thing with There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension!

Just look:

I unlocked 10 achievements in ONE day. ONE day.

Think of it like binging movies, but video game achievements. You won't stop, and you can't stop. Honestly, when you do eventually 100% some game, you just feel accomplished.

In a game called OneShot, there's an achievement where you have to play the game without closing it. OneShot takes about 1-4 hours to beat, depending on how well you know the game, and if you're speed running. I attempted to do this achievement, and it actually wasn't that hard, but if you mess up, there's no way to restart, at all. You have to go through the entire game just to restart, because of the game's plot. 

The same applies to another achievement in the game: Ram Whisperer. The achievement is given to players that solve a puzzle involving rams without having to restart the puzzle. When I attempted this achievement, I immediately made a mistake, which meant I had to play through the entire game all over again just because of that mistake.

That's all from me folks, See ya!
