i feel they killed the value of achievements

Getting achievements meant accomplishing something. Achievements were directly tied to GAMERscore. The more you played, the higher itd be. But now there are achievements in apps like Netflix that reward you for nothing. If you thought gamerscore/achievements meant very little before, they mean absolutely nothing now.

App achievements award zero gamerscore. I don't see the issue.

Zero point achievements mean absolutely nothing. Gamer score unaffected. What's your point?

Yeah, I don't see the issue with app achievements. Like challenges, they offer no Gamerscore and are only there for people who feel like going for them. It's just a bonus for people who enjoy achievements and use those apps a lot of the time.

Their value was lost long time ago, around the time Avatar the game came out and you could 1000g in ten mins. Then people started buying easy gamer score games.

If anything they killed the practicality of achievements. I hate how it's like an app now, it takes forever to look through them, they are hard to look at. It just sucks all around now.

I was just about to say that. I have a few Hulu achievements. All of them worth 0, so what's your point TC?

Hah. Yeah, that one game totally ruined the whole thing. Keep telling yourself that, you don't sound jealous at all.
