Achievement Hunter Retirement
I started 'achievement hunting' in July 2008 when I bought Lost: Via Domus solely for the reason of getting easy Gamerscore. I continued the trend for 8 years and went from not even being in the top 500 on this site to having the 3rd highest Gamerscore in the world.
However, I have decided to pursue gaming in a different way going forward and will no longer be buying or playing games just for achievements. I want to spend a lot more time playing other consoles and PC, I really feel that I have missed some amazing games on these platforms by focusing only on Gamerscore.
I am still going to be playing games on Xbox but it won’t be just for the achievements (though I will be finishing off the last few games I have already bought for this purpose).
So I officially retire having attained:
- One million Gamerscore hit at December 2015; and
- The 3rd highest Gamerscore in the World;
- The highest Gamerscore in the UK; and
- The highest single region Gamerscore (PAL / UK games only).
Good luck to everyone in your future gaming endeavours!
