Why are people so obsessed with Achievements?

#1Bullet_Proof_18Posted 9/1/2011 5:44:30 PM
I don't even mean to instigate or to talk down about anyone, but it seems like people are way too enamored with Achievements.

It's one thing if you get Achievements in the flow of the game, but to go out and actively seek them just seems silly and counterintuitive. And even then, you get literally nothing but worthless Gamerscore points for Achievements. I could see if they unlocked things or something (which maybe some do, but most don't), but they're entirely superficial.

Added replay value seems silly and counter-intuitive?

I like the achievements that I normally won't look for in a game unless the achievement says what to do and I try to see if I can do it like the halo reach testament for all ur sins and GTA 4s roll your car in mid air 4 times. But achievements like playing cod on veteran mode is usless because the ai is so cheap you wind up giving up and wasting time

There's no need for sarcasm. I was simply asking a question, and you could have simply answered it without such a tone.

Also like the above user said, it gives replay to games that lack depth and are short.
