call me old school but i miss the good old days gave you unlimited ammo or playing as a whole new character instead of a little bleep at the bottom of the screen.

It was also nice to play online and just dominate instead of people just aimlessly trying to perform some once in blue moon achievement, so everyone knows they earned another 10 gamerpoints.

Yes, I want to wreck the living S*** out of my games by cheating for lulz when I am boring playing it the normal way.

But nope, f***ing achievements ruin any chance of a 3rd or 4th replay with cheats.

GG microsoft,
Enjoy the profit Gamestop gets from seeing increased used game sales at a now much faster rate than other generations.
I hate to admit it, but I'm a graphics whore in denial.

No I don't think they are ruining games. When a developer chooses to allow cheating they usually block the gaining of achievements. Your problem is that developers aren't adding cheats as much as they used to.

Nope.

A lot of games I've played wouldn't have got a second playthrough if it wasn't for achievements.

As a gamer who has OCD and usually tries to get 100% of everything anyway, it's nice to know that sometimes there are more challenges, I'm glad that there are achievements, you get more playtime out of a game instead of running through it in 5 hours and wasting 50 bucks

You are consistently wrong. I'm amazed you continue to try.
