The Part Where He Kills You [Portal 2]
“Well, this is the part where he kills us…”
“Hello, this is the part where I kill you!”
Achievement Unlocked: The Part Where He Kills You
This perfectly-timed joke achievement is the final culmination of Valve’s comedic powers. Their last big console & PC game was Portal 2, a big-budget puzzler from a first-person perspective, and it is filled with jaw-droppingly silly moments. This particular exchange, between the villain Wheatley and GLaDOS in the form of a potato. It’s a long story. Just watch the embedded video and enjoy.
Mustache Twirling Villain [Red Dead Redemption]
Rockstar read our minds, and after finishing this grim achievement, I immediately regretted all of my life choices. We’ve all seen a black-clad villain placing a tied-up lady on the train tracks, but we’ve never had to experience the aftermath of this incredibly cartoonish scenario.
Make this fake scenario a reality, and you’ll get the darkly laughable reality. To earn ‘Mustache Twirling Villain’, you have to capture an innocent lady NPC with your lasso, place her on the train tracks, and wait for the inevitable result. No heroic cowboys are going to save the day this time. This is one trophy that made me reconsider my Black Hat ways and stick to the straight-and-narrow.
This is only a fraction of the funny achievements in games. What are you favorites? We’re always hunting for more weirdness in the grand history of gaming. Let us know what we missed!
