In What The Headcrab! Episode 19 I talked about a post on Reddit that said that only 1% of people who have played Half-Life 2 had attained all of the statistics. I couldn’t find a page that said only 1% had all achievements but I suspect it was a play on the current 1%/99% theme in today’s world.
Then later that day, I was playing a single player mappack for Black Mesa called Small Lab and I started to get some achievements. The funny thing is that I haven’t even played the game yet and when I do, I might even have most of them attained.
I’ve never been a big fan of achievements but I understand their appeal. Perhaps we could have Attain November, just like we did last year with HARD November?
For those that don’t know, and I didn’t, I had to look it up, here are the achievements per game:
Half-Life 2 has 33, Episode One 13 and Episode Two 22. That’s a total of 68.
Here are my statistics:
Half-Life 2: 20 out of 33 (61%)
Episode One: 3 out of 13 (23%)
Episode Two: 17 out of 22 (77%)
So that gives me a grand total of 40 out of 68 (59%). Where that puts me on the global total, I have no idea nor do I care. But I am curious to know either because we play mods we are more likely to have reached a higher percentage than non-mod players.
What do you think?
Anyway, here is a vote for your achievements.
