MiiVerse is being used as Nintendo's Achievement system.

Or did no one pay attention to NintendoLand/NSMBU? - Wars World News - The most chilled AW community on the web.

I don't like achievements, but I don't care if they add them.

I don't want to have it pop-up whenever I get one, and I don't want them to have any use past... bragging rights I guess?

Not a big deal, but they add absolutely nothing to a game for me, I don't play a game more because of achievements, I play it more because I like it.

Nintendo fanboys are against achievement system because Nintendo didn't come up with the idea first.

That's right! You got a problem with that, playboy?

I'm against them.

This article sums up pretty much why.

For me, achievements harm my gaming experience. I reckon it might not happen to everyone, though. But for me, it does.

I hate achievements. I feel they make both devs and players lazy. Rather than adding content or making a more creative world, just kill 500 bears for a trophy or something. If I wanna kill bears I'll do it without the need for a trophy.

If you ever played WoW post BC this became blizzards favorite thing to to do in WOTLK. OMG the initial end game content in WOTLK almost entirely revolved around achievements to pad out rehashed content and content that was laughably easy. Boss is a joke normally? kill him in the most non nonsensical fashion that will take HOURS to do so something can pop up on your screen!!! If you kill enough bosses in stupid counter intuitive fashions we will give you a mount! TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! That should substitute REAL content for 6 months...ugh

I usually don't have a problem with achievements but if they try to substitute real content it's not good and WoW during the wrath days was notoriously bad for this. Can't speak for cata or panda town since I quit shortly into cata before running any dungeons.

I'm against forcing developers to have an achievement system. If the developer wants it then its fine.

If a game has achievements, you can't give yourself challenges to do in-game.

You can't?
