Achievements, by definition, require you to actually do
something. Which is why it's oddly satisfying in some games to acquire a list of non-achievements, things that you specifically haven't
done despite the fact that it seems like you should
have done them. Like never raiding in World of Warcraft
, or never engaging in PvP in Aion
. Or sometimes they're even sillier, like being proud of never using auto-fire weapons in Star Trek Online
None of these things are really accomplishments
. But depending on your playstyle and what content you like to do, some of them can certainly feel
like it. If you hate big-group endgame content, refusing to ever set foot in an operation in Star Wars: The Old Republic
feels like a victory even if it sort of isn't. So are there any non-achievements that you're proud of? Are there things you are proud of not having done but having specifically avoided?
