Poll: What are Your Thoughts on Stackable Achievement Lists?

By Sean Carey,
It's almost the weekend and what an action-packed weekend we have. We have Double XP going on over in Gears 5 for Horde characters with free Boost, Borderlands 3 and Rainbow Six Siege are free-to-play until Monday and the Xbox Game Pass Quest, 10,000 Gamerscore for 10,000 Reward Points in 10 days is back! To kick the weekend off, we have the usual TA Poll. Last week we asked you about X019's Inside Xbox show. For the most part, the response was positive, with 35.7% saying you loved it.

Minecraft Achievements

This week we put out a story about Phil Spencer calling for a Play Anywhere future which could mean the end of stackable achievement lists. It caused a bit of a stir in the comments section, with some condemning stackables and others loving them.

In case you're unaware, a stackable achievement list is when a game gets released on another platform and has a separate achievement list. For example, Metro 2033 can be completed on the Xbox 360 in both English and Japanese netting you 2000G. If you include Metro 2033 Redux, this can be completed on the Xbox One and Windows 10, essentially giving you 4000G overall for playing what is basically the same game. Minecraft is probably the most notorious for this with separate achievement lists for nearly every platform under the sun.

For this week's poll, we want to know your thoughts on stackable achievement lists. Love them? Hate them? Or are you just not that bothered? Let us know in our poll and give us your reasons why in the comments.
