Rarest and Most Common Achievement

#1 Posted by Steffs (14 posts) -

I was sorting my Achievements by Rarity and thought it might be interesting to share. My Rarest Achievement is from Civilization V and is Tomb Raider, Pillage gold from an Egyptian city with a burial tomb in it. And my Most Common is from You Don't Know Jack and is It's Just More of This, Finish an Episode. Of course my second Most Common is from Civilization V and is Treasure Hunter, Discover an Ancient Ruin. Sort of neat that Civilization V has such a huge disparity for Achievement rarity.    Anyone else have any rare, not rare achievements to share?

My rarest is

Survival Beginner
Earn at least a bronze medal on any level in single player Survival.

So uh, I guess not too many people on this site played Serious Sam: The Second Encounter HD!

My most common was

Spoocey!
Grab the first Spooce in the game.

Wait... really?

This seems wrong to me. There is no way more people got an achievement in the PC release of Munch's Oddysee than LittleBigPlanet with it's sticker trophy... is there!?

The rarest one I'm actually proud of is

Suffragette
Complete the light world of the Cotton Alley.

That was a hell of a mission!

It's based on the number of players who have played the game and unlocked the, not total number of unlocks :)

The most rare achievement I have is "Hypersonic" from Mafia II's expansion, Joe's Adventures. I found it quite easy to do but still, if it's rare I'm pleased with it. The most common one I have, apparently, is for earning the caravan in Test Drive Unlimited 2.

Five out of six of my rarest achievements are from collecting tokens in Spider-Man 3. The odd one is the Rocketman achievement in Toy Soldiers "Invasions" DLC. Most commone is 30 Ghost Combo from Pac-Man Championship Edition DX.

My rarest is from World of Warcraft. It's Wrath of the Horde. Kill 5 Alliance players in each of their home cities. Funny since I haven't played WoW in almost a year now. 
 
My most common is from Mortal Kombat. It's "Where's the Arcade?". Complete Arcade Ladder with any fighter.

@JacDG: Well that makes more sense. Jesus, 100% of people have got that achievement. I guess you do unlock it within the first 3 seconds of gameplay...

My Rarest is getting 'Sick' on all film goals in Tony Hawk's Proving Ground. Only 4 people have it on the site and I was the first. (0.3% of players have it)

I was also the first of 5 to sick all photo goals.

My most common is Fairy God Mother from Chime. 99.7% of players have this... must be one of the most common.

Apparently my rarest achievement is a secret achievement from Guitar Hero: World Tour. I'm assuming it's the one I got for scoring above 222,222 as a drummer on Assassin by Muse.
 
My most common is for beating all the tutorial levels in RUSH.

Apparently not many people beat Space Giraffe for ERROR_SUCCESS

On the other side, people seem to have managed to complete 1 episode of You Don't Know Jack

My rarest one is You will learn respect which you get for earning 1000 respect points in Mortal Kombat 9, my most common one being Cooking By The Book which.. means casting a spell in Magicka. None of them are that hard to do, especially not the most common one.

Most Common: In the Right Direction - Complete all tutorial levels (RUSH)

Rarest: Superstar - Attain a Time Trial star rating of 90 (Mirror's Edge)

Both of those are a little surprising.

My rarest achievement is from Sneak King (lol) Area Master, get an A rank for all challenges in one level.

My second rarest, one that I am actually proud of, is from ACB Role Model - Get all the co-op bonuses in 1 multiplayer session. (I'm proud of it because I got it the legit way unlike 9(% of the people who have it)

Most common is also that you dont know jack one...

Man all this achievement talk makes me want to go find all the feathers in AC2 and ACB so i can S rank both of those.... Sounds like next weekends project.

My most common is Nostalgia, from Super Meat Boy. Rarest is Can't Touch This, for 27 medals in Game Room on 360. Man, what a waste of cash, but whatever. I loves me all the Centipedes and Millipedes, and they have freaking Pressure Cooker.
