noun.
meaning:
"Person who acquires XBOX 360 console games for the soul purpose of getting all of the achievements for that game to gain gamerscore."

Example Jake bought a bunch of easy 1000/1000 games so he can reach his goal of getting 500,000 gamerscore.

I think it's stupid to buy games solely for easy achievement points, maybe only if you only wanted to get to 25k fast on a GT for the extra rewards benefits.

But with that being said, gaming is and should be a wide reaching tent, if that's how a person gets enjoyment from games then who am I to say they're not doing it "right"

The one and only thing I question about people is when they base a purchase because of 'Easy' Achievements. Usually DLC or some such in a sale, but still, c'mon.

I don't understand people who play games they hate and have zero fun playing for achievements.

Would've been a better poll having only three options:

Like them

Dislike them

No opinion

I am a Chevo whore but will not buy bad game's for easy chevo's,I buy what I normally would but play it more or complete the game more then once on harder diffs for the chevo's,so with that said chevo's give game's more replay value for me by a long shot,I wouldnt have put 300+ hour's into Skyrim other wise.

It's their time and money, what right do I have to tell someone how to use it? The only ones who bother me are the ones who spend more hours griping about how an achievement must be glitched because it didn't unlock for them than they would spend working to try and get it to unlock again.
