Ridiculous Team Fortress 2 achievements

I've been playing TF2 for a couple of months now. The game has a lot which other online games don't, including the weapon unlocks, hats and achievements(which, on a PC, are rare). I personally like achievements and like obtaining them, but some of them are plainly ridiculous and stray way way from the classes' basic role. The situation has improved a lot lately, but the first class packs were notorious for these kind of achievements. Let's deal with them in order:

Is the Fatal Frame series any good?

Notes:

1. Fatal Frame is the US name of the game. The series is called Project Zero in Europe and Zero/Rei in Japan.
2. I haven't played the fourth one since it was released only in Japan and only on the Wii, a system I do not have.
3. The opinion is based on the PS2 versions of the games.

Why Diablo II fails(Warning: Opinion)

When I finally got my hands on Diablo II I was sure it was going to blow my mind and/or my head off with sheer awesomeness. Installing it was a kind of ritual, getting ready to witness astonishment that can make my head explode.

As you can tell from the title of this post, it did not happen. Boredom came in quick, around Act II. Starting from this point I prayed that it might get only better. It only got worse. The goddamn-wtf-were-they-thinking midgets from the jungle made me say...

Recently I replayed Half Life 2. It's been long since I actually finished the game. 5 years I think. Plus I never got to play the episodes. So when I finally got my hands on the Orange Box, I started to play without hesitation.

Needless to say, I was stunned by Alyx's performance as a combat companion and as a likable NPC. I'm mainly talking about the episodes during which you spend around 95% in ep.1, and 75% in ep.2 of the time with her.

When I started ep. 1 I was...

My Top 3 Game Disappointments of 2008

I might get flamed for the first two places, but the freedom of speech must prevail :D

3. Alone in the Dark.

Not much surprise here. The game would've been brilliant if it weren't for the bugs and design decisions. It had the qualities of a triple A title and yet all this effort was hindered. Even though it can be frustrating, I still think this title is worth at least trying just for the ideas.

2. Prince of Persia.
