There's that magic moment when you hear the chime of an achievement unlocked. That little trophy that's worth... well nothing in the real world, is worth everything when you've poured hours of blood, sweat, and tears into a game. Some mean more than others, even in the digital world, but the video game achievements on this list are just plain hilarious.
