Do you think Microsoft has gone too far with achievements?

Man...I had really hoped that this was something they were not going to add back when this broke before E3.

It's kinda sad but meh, some people might get enjoyment out of it I suppose.

The catcher here is that if you have OCD then it's probably gonna be a big problem.

It hasn't gone far enough.

The media app achievements aren't worth any Gamerscore, and are just for fun. What's the issue?

At least some of them (like Twitch) try to get users to watch streams with less users to give support to smaller streamers.


People will attack anything Microsoft will do on Gamefaqs.

Achievements have never been 'achievements'.

I always wished they felt more rewarding and satisfying.. you know like it was an achievement.

Instead it became "turned on the game" "watched the first cutscene" "killed 1 person" "did something online".

No one believes you have an Xbone, tc. You are well known for trolling the system, so you're either lying or a hypocrite. And no, no one will be impressed if you play the "I'm a real gamer and buy everything" card, since being a troll excludes you from being a "real gamer" automatically.

and I'm not a hypocrite, I just don't turn a blind eye to things I believe are issues.
