No more truth in achievements.
Hello Achievement hunters, friends, and stuff.
You might have noticed but since I completed my 80th game achievements have lost the spark they one had. Don't get me wrong I am still a gamer at heart, even now I type this post using my xbox and controller, but by 100k gamerscore; hunting became more of a job than a hobby.
What's the point? No pun intended.
The first step in gaming which is an achievement has to be picking up a controller, left to dwell in these strange and wonderful worlds to achieve medals, kills, wins or whatever you like. The concept of what makes an achievement. It can be something that gains you recognition: Finishing school with all A and Bs, getting a job (or a triple kill with the energy sword!) and being happy. Already its becoming easy to get carried away.
Back onto xbox, theres times when it is there to show dedication such as any seriously achievement, for fun with turd burgular and those pesky DLC achieves. But honestly, a good sit down to reflect on how much time we personally spend on these complex 1000 point checklists is quite daunting. I started hunting in November 2009, the first game I completed. 5 years and 79 completions later, the GamerScore has gone up by over 90000, yet the sense of accomplishment becomes fainter with every unlock. The worst part is many, more hardcore hunters habitually hate on things they cannot achieve. Noticing this driven the SS dazman into landlock. Nobody seems to get it.
Also a break happened right after Left 4 Dead was done. Considerably one of the happiest days ever, and I havent looked back since then. It caused me to turn my life around and hunting has to stay in the past. I am genuinely happy after binning negative users, resolving conflicts and focusing on my real love life, career and social life. So long story short, will i be cheevo hunting for the future?
