Wait, what's this about getting a discount for having over 75k GS? I have 78k and have never noticed a discount.

I want a discount! Tell me more!

Thanks! I guess I already signed up for this and didn't even know! I like this site though, tracks my most played game last month (Forza 5 FYI), Achievements last month (an embarrassing 740), etc.

What is 5,000 reward credits worth by the way?

I can see how being OCD could lead one to hate achievements.
Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

achievements are terrible, its just an excuse for devs to artificially lengthen games
No fun allowed.

It is, in fact, possible to only go after the achievements you want to get.


Not a bad idea.

I only go after achievements that are interesting. I have no need or obsession to absolutely get every last one.

Achivemnts were a great thing for the xbox 360 but now adays it nothing to me, just something I can unlock and earn.

The ones who can get those hard to earn achievements are someone I can say good job to.

I hate it when games pretty much let you get 1000/1000 for just playing it normally. I think achievements should be hard to earn, not just given out for normal play as this cheapens them.
