Geoff's penance People keep asking what Achievement I should pin on Geoff now that he has lost the Call of Duty achievement race. There are lots of suggestions for impossible achievements, like "win five straight NBA 2k6 games online" (when no one plays online anymore). I think that defeats the purpose. I am leaning heavily towards either Dead Rising's Seven Day Survivor Achievement which requires at least 14 continuous hours of gameplay with no saves or Half Life 2's "Little Rocket Man" which makes you take a garden gnome from the first two minutes of the game all the way through until the end. Both are pretty funny. I think in the end it will be the Dead Rising one simply because I love that game so much and I can't believe he did not finish it. Plus, I have the achievement so I know it's not impossible.

During the contest, I floated the idea of an alternate "real life achievement" the loser could do instead of an Xbox one. Something like the "Tasty Dragon", where you have to eat an entire spoonful of cinnamon. Everyone seemed to like that, so I want to come up with something suitable for him. Geoff is a very picky eater and both Griffon and I have suffered for years when having meals with him. I've worked with him for about ten years now and it's a huge chore to find somewhere he can tolerate the food. So I think I will see if he wants to go out to a dinner during which anything Griffon orders for him, he has to eat. Nothing gross, just a normal meal from someplace that isn't (as Griffon puts it) "Pizza or Italian food for the millionth time". When I told her the idea for the real life achievement, I think she actually start cheering for me in the contest.

I say try the "Seven Day Survivor" achievement- see who can last the 14 hours.

Of course, you could always leave on the 360 and come back...

There are a few achievements from GH3 that aren't exactly what I would call easy.

Also, what's his deadline for the achievement? I like the whole "not being able to play another game until you get it" idea...but, you know, that's probably because I thought of it.

i'd go with the dead rising, myself. just cause it is a real pain to get. anyone can eat food.

I tried eating cinnamon I had to puke it up because it got stuck in my throat.
#10  Posted 7 years ago
Also, after reading that Rocket Man achievement, go with that one. That's fucking hilarious.

i say you make him do an xbox/real-life crossover challenge...make him eat the 360
#12  Posted 7 years ago
go for the little rocket man, it's funnier.
#13  Posted 7 years ago
The real life one sounds real good. I'm a picky eater too, so I know how big of a deal that would be.
#14  Posted 7 years ago
someone ate a spoonful of cinnamon on the 18+ forums so I know it can be done

Indian Food. It's like combining the finicky eating patterns with the spoonful of cinnamon.
#16  Posted 7 years ago
Yeah, little Rocket Man isn't as punishing as the dead rising one :P
#17  Posted 7 years ago
7 day challenge. that's what I'd do...

We should probably make a rule that we can only give achievements that we ourselves have. That way, no one gets anything dumb like "get to level 100 on Robotron" or something. Of course, I realize that means he'll just make me do the "5 years of 5 star recruiting" in NCAA 07. Fuck that.

I really like the idea of the real life achievement. Pics and stories please if you go with that option.
#20  Posted 7 years ago

Honestly... I would say make him get the "Inhuman Achievement" on Guitar Hero III and make him suffer through trying to beat Dragonforce's "Through the Fire and the Flames" on Expert....
Seriously will bring a grown man to tears!
#25  Posted 7 years ago
Why dont you have a retro battle, like packman or mario brothers LOLs... something old, may be fun.
#26  Posted 7 years ago
All 3 ideas are awesome, but I think the eating something is cool...since picky eaters genuinely despise what they don't like. Make him eat escargot
#27  Posted 7 years ago
I'm voting for sushi. Maybe eel or something....

After watching that cinamon thing I'm inclined to think that chick is kinda retarded. Honestly, if I was inclined to try something like that and my reaction was that bad first thing's first. Deck the boyfriend, barf the cinamon and destroy the evidence.

#29  Posted 7 years ago
