OK, I'll start.

I'm a 33 year old IT Manager working in London.

I got married to my lovely wife last year, she let's me play games if I let her watch Hollyoaks and Big Brother (compromise is what's being married is all about folks ;o).

I started my gaming life with an Atari 2600 and a copy of Pacman. Since then I've had various Spectrums (48k, 128k) and various Amigas (500 and 500+) before getting into consoles with the PS1 and PS2 and the original Xbox.

I now have a 360, wii, DS and PSP and am seriously considering getting a PS3.

I also write quite a few websites in my spare time, and I am massively into various forms of music (indie, hip hop, trance and funky house in particular.)

Oh, I also had a season ticket at spurs for 5 years before I moved to South East London and when I stopped going they immediately finished 5th in the league twice and won the carling cup. So I'm scared to go any more!

Hi, I'm OtisFamily, but I normally use Otisbum as a name on other sites.

I love music, games, guitar, and some other stuff. When I'm on the internet I spend the majority of my time at x360a while listening to music.

I have around 90% of all game consoles from Genesis to the 360, but those two would have to be my favorites.

And that's about it. :P

Hey I'm a 27 year old HARCORE gamer, I have been playing for alot of years. I work at a steel mill in Monroe, MI, so I do have an eractic online game time. I love my 360, currently I am on my 4th; this one is an ELite, hopfully it will last a little longer than the rest. I also can call myself a gamerscore whore, and I am EAGERLY awating hitting 100K, so many of my friends have already surpassed me, so I am trying to catch up.

I am currently on a gaming streak of 600 days straight(viewable @ xbox360voice). I hope you will check out my blog, and perhaps leave a comment, or ADD me as a "watcher." I also frequent x360a.org and now I have found a new home @ trueachievements.com.

I hope this website will stick around awhile and I hope that if you want to play, please send me a FR (but PLEASE w/ a messge, so I know where you are coming from.)

I am a 29 year old gamer. I have been around games in some form since about 1986, on an old and slow Tandy computer. I started then playing Jack Nicklaus Golf with my parents. I have had a Ninetendo, Sega Gensis, PS2, Xbox, and 2 Xbox 360's. I am with the rest of you, hoping this one will last longer then the rest. I usually play military shooters and sports games. But I am trying to broaden my gaming, so if anyone has suggestions let me know. Oh, I also work at UPS, so if you have questions about shipping 360s with UPS, ask.

Hello everyone. Eh, where to start?

Well, I own every Nintendo system ever made. I bought a 360 a little over a month ago because I got bored of the Wii and all my friends had a 360 (plus I really wanted to get GTA IV).

I like pretty much every game type except for sports and racing (excluding the Burnout series). My favourite is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. But my favourite 360 game right now is GTA IV. In case you couldn't tell by the way I spell "favourite", I'm from Canada.

I look forward to playing with you online! That's it I guess.

17 year old student living in Toronto, Canada.

Gaming since I was 6 on the PC, and started my xbox experience soon after Forza Motorsport was released. Been hooked on Xbox Live since. Got my 360 on launch date, and have been addicted to achievements since early 2007, which gives me a big head start on most players...

I enjoy biking, skiing and soccer with the occasional paintball.

Thats all I can think of now...

I'm a 19 Year Old student attending University to study for a HND in Information Technology. I also have a National Diploma in IT too. I specialise in Web Development (Mainly using PHP), I also program windows applications using C# and Visual Basic. Not to mention my love of making Flash games.

My gaming experience really started with the Mega Drive (Or Genesis) back in 1991 - my first game was Sonic 1 and I'm not ashamed to admit that I love Sonic still after all of those years (even if the later games have been a little bit disappointing).

I moved on to the Playstation and then later the PS2 before deciding to get a 360. Since then I've turned into a bit of an achievement junkie - playing pretty much anything I could in order to gain achievements. After 3 months of playing I'd racked up 8,000G which is quite a feat for me as I wasn't that big into gaming before the 360.

Since buying a 360 I have been looking into ways of utilising data from XBOX LIVE (similar to how this site does) and have nearly finished a Windows Live Messenger Plus script that displays your gamertag, gamerscore and last played game in your Personal Message.

I have also been doing some Web Development work in order to use the same data for different purposes such as comparing achievements and a fully fledged site where people can discuss each achievement however the wish. (That was before I found this place though which pretty much already does the same thing)
