Would you give up the achievement system if Xbox LIVE was free?

Microsoft makes LIVE free, but they take away the achievements in every game. Would you do it?

Hell yes. I couldn't care less about my achievement score as it is. If a game is good, I'll play it no matter what.

Toronto Maple Leafs fan for life. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

This is an interesting question, actually.

I actually like achievements because it's like a 'record' of your accomplishments (beating Halo on Legendary, reaching this rank, completing this quest, etc.) - a bookmark of what you've been doing in games, if you will.

However, I can play games just fine without achievements popping up. I'd say yes, though.

Also, what would happen with Games With Gold?

Why would it have to be one or the other? The question makes no logical sense. Its not like achievements cost money or are an alternative to paying for xbox live.

The question is like ...

'Would you eat McDonalds for free but in turn they only sold soft drinks?'

or

'Would you go on a safari in Africa for free, but in turn there will be no animal to see on the safari?

or

'Would you go to the Superbowl for free, but in turn there will only be one team playing?'

C'mon MAN!

I don't care either way. Achievements were ruined a long time ago when they added online & DLC achievements. Throw in the glitched achievements and I couldn't care less about them anymore.
