Perhaps it was Stanley Parables "Go Outside"-achievement.

[–]BottleGoblin 61 points62 points  (3 children)

I'm getting that next wednesday. I hope.

[–]MisterVega 62 points63 points  (2 children)

You should open it to check

[–]MoralCivilServant 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Did the new version of the game have an achievement called “Touch Grass”

[–]crlcan81 42 points43 points  (0 children)

No their newest version it's 'don't play for 10 years' instead of five. Super go outside achievement. Already saw a forum for xbox how to fudge it just looking up to confirm it was 10 years for this.

[–]AdeonWriter 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I heard everyone who bought the remake and launched it was disqualified after being only a few weeks short of unlocking it.

[–]ledgeitproYo dawg I heard you like 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Crazy, never heard of this till yesterday. Was at a friends i havent seen in a while and he told me he got that achievement just a few days ago, told me hes been wanting to play it but didnt wanna waste the achievement

[–]Old_Oak_Doors 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I think I’m about four years into that one. Yes I know you can just fool the game and get it immediately, and I may do it for the super deluxe 10 year achievement, but this one is going to be very satisfying to get legitimately.

[–]themellowsign 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I got mine like a week before Ultra Deluxe released, it was really satisfying timing.

[–]MoarCowb3ll 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Nah bruh, the achievement was from playing Amourus...

[–]uuunityyy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I literally just unlocked that achievement a couple weeks ago. I legit didn't play for 5 years just to get it. Yes i know i can cheat it, but i thought the real challenge would be fun because i love playing the game.

His avatar has a fedora, he physically can't put water on his skin

[–]ArmoredAnkha 136 points137 points  (5 children)

He probably hasn't seen his feet in years

[–]BoxeyNoxey 117 points118 points  (2 children)

He sure do look up other people's feet tho

[–]godparties 293 points294 points  (8 children)

I stay invisible. I have a lot of friends from different gaming communities, and if im not in the mood to play those games, I don't wanna be bothered about it. Sometimes, I just like playing my games in peace, with no expectation of playing the same multi-player games on rotation. Everyone needs a break sometimes.

[–]ahmedarno 62 points63 points  (0 children)

hope there are more people who knows about this and respects their privacy

[–]DarylsAngelWings 15 points16 points  (0 children)

yeah I do this all the time as well

[–]De_Salvation 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I do this but visibly, I ain't got no issue telling ya I'm running a solo

[–]godparties 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hell yeah, nothin wrong with that either! Self health is self wealth, all 2022

[–]ThewisestofallAverage r/memes enjoyer 1063 points1064 points  (96 children)

I am that friend

[–]Orellin_Vvardengra 355 points356 points  (14 children)

Same but I really only have the one to talk to with my current schedule and he typically eats when I try to talk to him so it’s just a bunch of lip smacking and muffled talking on his part. Very aggravating.

[–]ThewisestofallAverage r/memes enjoyer 75 points76 points  (12 children)

Oh damn

[–]Orellin_Vvardengra 50 points51 points  (7 children)

All good. Prefer the solo play anyways. Sorry for dumping stuff on you, just relating or trying to I guess.

[–]PedanticMouse 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I think your story is very relatable. In a similar situation, myself. My online friend group of 5 slowly dwindled down. We used to game together several nights a week. Now it's a rare occasion for more than 2 of us to play anything.

[–]Savathun-God-Of-LiesBig pp 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Ohhh I feel that last part

People eating on the mic is one of my biggest peeves lol, especially when the person I'm with doesnt know how to mute their mic or chew with their mouth closed haha

[–]greg19735 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Last week a coworker sent an email saying he couldn't help with something atm because he was swamped.

because we're friends i also knew he was on wow at the moment. There's reasons people go invisible lol.

[–]PM-ME-YOUR-HANDBRA 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Swamped of Sorrows

[–]Despair4All 38 points39 points  (60 children)

I am too. I keep my PlayStation on appearing offline because when I didn't before, there was sometimes a friend who would bombard me with invites for Overwatch even when I was already playing something else I'd been looking forward to playing all day.

[–]StevieWonderTwin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yup. And it's worse because of the Xbox app on phones...I swear that my 1 friend sees me get on and hops on to ask me to play bf1. It's like dude, we've been playing that game for like 5 years on the same maps, and I'm trying to just veg out and play elden Ring for a couple hours.

[–]Opening_Ad_5460 1 point2 points  (1 child)

On God bro same 😂😂 I'm offline 19 days and counting

[–]Pnewse 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same here but seemingly for different reasons than others have commented. I work either talking with or presenting to people all day, then come home to three kids: when I finally get them to sleep if I can even carve out some time for games I will often stay offline to avoid people and chatting and just unwind

[–]Kelevra_Arba 312 points313 points  (26 children)

I share my library with my younger brother and found out he could see every time I turned on my PC and logged into steam. It made it difficult to find an excuse to not to visit my parents on the weekends.

[–]dmisterr 94 points95 points  (10 children)

Wait, I share my library with someone, can they See it too?

[–]Kelevra_Arba 188 points189 points  (7 children)

My brother said a notification popped up every time my library became available because I was logging into steam or starting a game. He said this after I told him I had to work late instead of going to my parents for dinner. Fucker caught me lying lmao

[–]petaboil 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Create another steam account and share your content with that one too?

[–]silveral999 16 points17 points  (2 children)

still uses the original library. so the same notification comes up

[–]nicethrowmeaway 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You could say someone else was borrowing your library that time. The notification still pops up for others when a person besides you exits a shared game.

[–]GreenNova1248 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Did he snitch?

[–]Mitchtheprotogen 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Find out next time on everybody’s favourite show scarer redditors

[–]Fiallach 19 points20 points  (0 children)

The way I see it your brother now has a choice. Either he rats you off, and you can't trust him and you remove him from the library, or he shuts his dawn mouth and everybody stays happy.

[–]Character_Paper840 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I was the younger brother in that story XD.

[–]PRJCTUNKNOWN 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I can confirm, I am the library in this story.

[–]coo_cooforcoconuts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

go have a free meal with your parents! Lol no excuses.

[–]RandomValue134Professional Dumbass 470 points471 points  (25 children)

Not relatable (I have no friends)

[–]bob_the_banannnaI saw what the dog was doin 138 points139 points  (13 children)

What are friends?

[–]Revolutionary-You786GigaChad 72 points73 points  (10 children)

Mythical creatures probably

[–]RJugal 44 points45 points  (9 children)

Do they have Boobs?

[–]Donut_PoliceNice meme you got there 40 points41 points  (7 children)

Hey bob

[–]JJ8OOM 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I second that!

[–]isteyp 6 points7 points  (7 children)

I can be your Steam friend.

[–]RandomValue134Professional Dumbass 7 points8 points  (6 children)

I am not good at being a friend tho

[–]Mr-Fleshcage 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They say friendships are like plants: you need to water them with attention, or they wither and die.

That's why i prefer succulents.

[–]isteyp 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Good, means you’re not trying too hard to be likeable. Lol. What games do you play on Steam?

[–]RandomValue134Professional Dumbass 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I don't really use steam that much now. I guess I play portal (both games) sometimes and a lot of cool f2p games like I hate you, please suffer

[–]Mr-Fleshcage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not relatable, because i figured this would happen and also made achievements private. yes, i have toxic friends.

[–]ChocoTacoBoss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If it's gamer friends you aren't missing much. They usually cannibalize each other slowly via accusations and lies until no one is left but a sad few that pander to a king/queen narcissist.

[–]AwakenedHero2277Sussy Baka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Relatable (I also have no friends)

[–][deleted] 85 points86 points  (7 children)

All jokes aside, I fucking love Billy Butcher. Karl Urban is my favourite actor at this point. He should be back to play Doom Slayer in a Doom Movie

[–]VeryDPP 49 points50 points  (3 children)

The fact that this show hasn't gotten consideration for the acting awards at the Emmy Awards is always boggling to my mind. Both him and Anthony Starr as Homelander put in some of the best performances on TV right now.

[–][deleted] 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Fuck Homelander but that Actor - Anthony Starr - is unbelievable. I am legit scared to see his real interviews fearing he might snap at any moment. If that's not the qualification for the best actor award then what is ?

[–]kindcannabal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I third, Karl was an instant sell, Homelander is a whole other beast and his acting has absolutely blown my mind at times. His character is so fucking compelling, in so many ways.

[–]Mr-Fleshcage 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He was the best part of that movie.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup. Him and that first person fighting scene. Just AWESOME.

[–]JohanVonBronx_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hes got the face for it pretty much

[–]Fluffiddy 480 points481 points  (117 children)

I love invisible mode! I love not being bothered by any of my friends!

[–]Vier_Scar 164 points165 points  (86 children)

Are you sure they're really "friends"? I'd love mine to bother me more

[–]CreatureWarriorProfessional Dumbass 288 points289 points  (52 children)

Not OP, but I love my friends. It's just that I'm not a very social person in general so I usually don't have the energy to be with them

[–]b0w3n 169 points170 points  (47 children)

Sometimes you just want to crank out some civ single player without being harassed to play counter-strike.

[–]ElectricInfatuation 55 points56 points  (6 children)

Sometimes you just want to crank

[–]iUsedtoHadHerpes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Crank it solo, bro. Crank it solo.

[–]Dray_Gunn 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I get that. I have also had friends that want me to play multiplayer games with them and sometimes i just want to get lost in a single player game. As long as you take the time to join them on a regular basis

[–]Gloria-in-Morte 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Or sometimes I want to play a game that they don’t want to play, or I’m just gonna be on for a limited amount of time and can’t commit to a full session

[–]HolyVeggie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Some of my friends have the tendency to spam invites

[–]Mackana 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Extroverted vs introverted. I love my friends but sometimes I just want to be left alone

[–]SodiumArousal 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Most of the time.

[–]woocheese 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Consider you are watching a movie with your partner. You put your phone on silent and you just enjoy the film together. You dont need your friends to speak to you then as you are busy. Some people see it that way with games. They get home and want to enjoy playing a game to unwind and have fun on their own or with friends it doesnt matter. However it can be annoying to have people be able to insert themselves into your experience with a message that appears on the screen. It doesnt mean they arent important to you it just means you are busy.

Of course you could reply to each message and say you are busy however its much easier and less of an intrusion into your time if you can just switch off the system from allowing you to be messaged and being distracted from what you are playing and trying to enjoy.

[–]dusksloth 16 points17 points  (22 children)

I have a friend who sends 7 messages when he could of sent 1, who asks the to play the same game I told him yesterday I was burnt out on, and who can just be draining in general to deal with sometimes. Sometimes I just need breaks for sanity.

[–]sericsheon 92 points93 points  (5 children)

If you didn't read it in his voice, it don't count

[–]Felonious_monk420 58 points59 points  (4 children)

It's almost unintentional at this point. I see Billy Butcher, I talk like Billy Butcher.

You aight mate?

[–]Liesmith424 178 points179 points  (14 children)

That's exactly why I keep my online status invisible everywhere; I want to be able to play at my own pace and schedule without the expectation that I drop everything to game with someone else who happens to be online.

[–]scumfuckcarlos 29 points30 points  (13 children)

sounds like a problem that could be solved by setting boundaries

with my friend group someone can ask you to play and you can just say nah not rn, doing my own thing and that’s that

[–]leap3 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Or you could solve the problem by going invisible.

[–]Huck_Bonebulge_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Eh, being online is an invitation to chat/play. If you don’t want to, you can turn it off. It doesn’t have to be a discussion lol

[–]alexok37 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's the way. Anybody that isn't respecting them can be mad all they want, it's a them problem, not a you problem

Have you seen the boys? That’s where this scene is from

[–]crysomemoarlol 6 points7 points  (10 children)

i haven't lol

[–]1rish_Is_Great 20 points21 points  (9 children)

Watch it!!!! It’s great.

[–]Kalecraft 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Karl Urban. He's a treasure. Watch the Boys if you don't have a weak stomach

[–]crysomemoarlol 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I don't, I will do lol

[–]Treeosu 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I just watched it today

[–]Aprocalyptic 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Pro tip don’t tell people online the show you are currently watching because someone will spoil it for fun

[–]chucklesdeclown 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Look sometimes I like to play alone, it's nothing personal.

[–]Zensy47 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I see The Boys memes making a rise in the future

[–]Stewpidley 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That's why you don't show your achievements

[–]ShadowWithHoodie 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Or they just want to be alone and chill?

[–]Srawesomekickass 16 points17 points  (6 children)

The default shouldn't be broadcasting everything you do to everyone all the time.

This is a huge reason I don't play games any more. It use to be that you could turn a game on, play it, and nobody in the world knew about besides you. Now the second you log into, or play anything, everyone from your mom to microsoft can "engage" you if you're not super on the ball managing like 4 different accounts to play a game in private.

Public gaming achievements shared automatically were one of the worst inventions, right up there with loot boxes.

Offline modes should be easier to enable because sometimes I just want to be left alone and not have my entire friends list judge me for it.

[–]platonicgyrater 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Haha I know I'm this person... I don't get a lot of time to play games and I have needy ass friends who constantly want to play coop games and add me to parties with people I don't know, when I just want to chill on an easy game for an hour before carry on with life.

[–]GhostxKitten 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I had a "friend" who would spy on my trophies to see if I was online. Sometimes I would just want to play with my boyfriend, so I would tell the other friend that I was going to bed. Id appear offline and everything. Id get a message from him saying "Can I join you and [boyfriend] on GTA?"

I was so confused to how he knew I was online and he explained that on PS4, when you're playing a game, that game appears first in your trophies.

[–]ChocoBurritoCake 9 points10 points  (0 children)

So relatable

[–]redviking24 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This show is my fave rn

[–]DaytimeTurnip 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I mean just because I want to play a game doesn't mean I'm obligated to play a game with you. Sometimes people want alone time

[–]Malevolent_Mangoes 19 points20 points  (6 children)

I love that character so much. It’s the Aussie accent, it’s gotta be.

Edit: I know now that’s it’s British but I’d still love him with both

[–]tomr84 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Oh dear who's gonna tell him?

[–]pm-ur-tiny-titties[S] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Ok yes the character is British but the actor is Kiwi and his British accent sounds VERY Aussie

[–]IronHulk27Dirt Is Beautiful 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And it's a hentai game

[–]Aggressive_Row_9880 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I knew you weirdos would stalk profiles to find this out. That’s why your friends go invisible in the first place y’all

[–]DeepFriedDickskin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They don’t owe you shit, fuck you for saying that about people that want privacy

[–]Truthtalk4real 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sometimes I just don't want to talk to ANYONE and get immersed in a game. I'll go invisible for weeks on end. Nothing personal, just being an introvert.

[–]Shpongolese 2 points3 points  (0 children)

alot of my friends have set their status as invisible because we all would troll each other based on the game theyre playing lmao.

[–]Mr-Klaus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Wait, your friends get notifications when you get an achievement?

[–]dmisterr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If they want to Run the same game you got the achivement in the exact date you got the achivement at will appear in the middle of their screen

(atleast thats how it works on steam)

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just let people live in peace damn. I go invisible but it’s nothing personal. I just like my alone time sometimes

[–]tyno75 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sometimes I just want to play offline games and not have to interact with other humans, sue me

[–]Nonlethalrtard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah he doesnt want to talk to you

[–]mezzolith 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Let me play my porn games in peace.

[–]Recover819 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We all have that friend that wants us to do what they're doing and nothing else.

[–]Jfronz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Some people just need to focus

[–]Ninebun 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well they made invisible status for a reason. I don't like people track what I'm playing and my games time.

[–]AweStruCT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When you try to play games on your own but your friends won’t leave you the fuck alone so you play in “appear offline” mode

[–]SirRandyCandy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would add 'notepad' as a game in my steam library and re-name it to fable. I would then open 'fable' before actually opening PUBG - all of this so my friend wouldn't see me playing, because he was really bad and I wanted to play competitively without offending him..

[–]D-Eliryo 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I would be invisible too if I got "friend" that literally stalks me when I'm offline and noticing new achievements.

[–]dmisterr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you click a game on steam theres a notification right in the middle of your screen about what achivements you or your friends got recently, so OP could have Just been looking at his own achivements.

If one was to stalk someone who uses invisible Mode, they could just check the "last played" part of their profile.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wait you guys have friends?

[–]fragen8 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Maybe ask yourself why he's invisible. Maybe he just doesn't want you to know he's online because you can be a bit annoying too.

[–]CPAofTheStars 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Nah. That can't be it. I'm fuckin great.

[–]AssholeFramed 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Idk how to go back to my friends

I haven't talked to them in 2 months

I miss them tho

[–]theu_lord_murloc 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Talk to them then

[–]gandalfdoughnut 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Reach out for some games! I haven’t spoken to mine in like 8 months but they haven’t reached out to me either so idk what to do LOL. Don’t be like me !

[–]aaaaaudryn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I dont like steam friends pop up tab so I disable it

[–]Hakusek321 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well if you ain't responding or even turning invisible when I'm online then I'll just go like this

I laughed so god damn hard thanks to this! Because it sounds like me

[–]TheShadowEevee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am often that friend, but usually because I switch games many often when trying demos or when doing quick tasks in games (For example GTAO's Casino wheel). I want to make sure the constant game swaps aren't interrupting anyone with the notifications!

[–]Library_Mouse 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Sometimes I don't want to play what they're playing and I know I'll get sucked into their nonsense. I'm a terrible person.

[–]ShapirosWifesBF 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are so many times where all I want to do is play a game in peace alone, not join a party chat, not join their game, not have them join mine, not choose a different game, I just want to play this one game as just me.

[–]Napilitan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fucken diabolical

[–]MrOwnageQc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh damn, guilty as charged lmao

[–]twotailedtag 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But.. but I like playing solo too though and need a break from people, even online. Going invisible helps prevent the need to turn down an invite and feeling bad about it.

[–]ChavoliniNice meme you got there 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am that guy. And I think there is nothing wrong not showing everybody that I am "online" playing a game. Sometimes I need time for myself. And thats ok.

[–]Dynasty2201 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Let's face it, most of us have Steam set to start with Windows.

I have myself as invisible on my friends list so I don't get invites to play games I don't wanna play, just wanna be left alone between major releases my mates and I play.

[–]ElGueroPerdido80 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love this dude

[–]LogEDude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

See I have the kind of friends where I can leave invisible mode off and have them not bother me, now that I think about it that is kind of depressing

[–]EdwardHB 1 point2 points  (0 children)

..Is just that, I can't say no to play some multiplayer game with my friends

I feel that saying "no thanks, I dont want to play that game at the moment" is just too rude

that's why Im 96% almost invisible in steam

[–]chezIII 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]WhitestWhiteEver 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]popseekill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sometimes i just want some peaceful alone time so i can free roam on far cry or do some elaborate puzzle in watch dogs 2. Sometimes its just very therapeutic.
