    Vudix, you said it wouldn't happen!!!

    Anyway, gamerscore no longer matters to me. I still try to get an achievement a day or so, but even that's getting harder to do, being swamped with work.

    Yeah I lived for it at one point, but now don't even bother checking a games achievement list. I just play like I did on the PS1, play for my own objectives, and just get a nice surprise every now and then when an achievement pops.
    Stupid people do stupid things, smart people outsmart each other.

These easy games are a godsent and I am liking all of these crybabys...crying about gamerscore(when they actually buy and play these easy games). Cry Me A River....

    Sean saw the traffic the last article pertaining to this drew (and continues to draw) and couldn't resist throwing some more chum in the water 🤣. I'll bite by saying what I wrote on the other post more or less

    If you want to play shovelware crap, feel free. Don't think it is silly for others to notice and point it out and don't get defensive when we do. Playing these types of games only polute the gamerscore system further. If it's going to be a lawless jungle without parameters on how gamerscore is distributed, we might as well stop gamerscore completely as shovelware makes it meaningless. Seeing people with over a million gamerscore and ta ratios under 1.3 is practically horrifying and shows some take pride in further toxifying the whole gamerscore system.

    Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk

    I enjoyed going back and playing some of the schmups, for a couple of quid these minigames are a nice palette cleanser between sweating in your PvP of choice or collecting 3 panties, 5 fish in a bag, and 15 pizzas in the latest Ubisoft open worlder.

    Plus the dopamine achievement sound is nice.

    Whats the point in increasing gamerscore with garbage that literally anyone around you can do? Where is the sense of "achievement"? Increasing your gamerscore is pointless if its meaningless mate. Lots of games can be done with community events, thats just a convienient excuse to try to play garbage without catching flak for it

    This is fundamentally a good thing - free updates for people that already own these titles. Nothing wrong with this. I think the problem stems from that many people purchased and played these games not because they liked them but to increase their gamerscore. So now that they potentially "have to" play/complete them again, it's suddenly an issue. But it's really not the publisher's problem to be honest. Buy, play and complete only what you truly like. Achievement hunting shouldn't feel like work.

    Agree with this. The flood of easy gamerscore is ridiculous trash money pumps for them. Not saying I haven’t done my couple when I started gaming on Xbox or PlayStation but this ain’t like playing childrens games for easy scores. These are pump dumps cash grabs. GS don’t matter anymore everyone has a million. Let’s see them ratios instead haha

    Can't blame them if they find folks buying their games for that reason

    EastAsiaSoft and Ratalaika have both released some generally fun games as well. So I don't really mind this at all. If it gets even more people buying their games and we see more releases from them.

    Eventually though like all the even ******* games that were released on PSN with platinums from Xbox's creator collection area. They'll come a time when MS will crackdown on it.
