In all "seriousness" (if something can be said about it), it's simply a matter of personal "reward". Do you try for everything just because so? The Gamescore in the end really doesn't mean that much other a lot of played Games. Some Achievements on the other
hand can be quite different.
Hum gamer scores are really there to give gamers a false sense of “You’re getting something.” when you really are not. On the other back of the hand it is a way to allow you to work toward that all might high of that big gamer score over everyone which only
one gamer holds today.
Otherwise, gamers play games for different reasons for myself it a way to past my time until I wait for that big last day before I am called to the higher power in the sky. My gamer score is nice to see knowing I have played many, many games through the
5 years on Live freely giving my money away like water but what else will I d with my money spend it on a female…not !
I like the gamer score, makes me work toward the big score over all IF the GS was taken away I might play less games same goes for the Achievement hunting I want what I want, what I pay for…If I wanted to play games for the love of a game I would stick with
poker every Saturday night where the house margins are higher than my gamer score. In ending, you seem to like fishing allot try fishing for Tuna you might get a better answer.
I like gamer score but it not something that I use to determine whether I play or buy a game. I just see it as a little extra. Also it's something that I can look back at and see my gaming history. For example, it took me two years to get all the achievements
in mass effect 2 and I played mass effect in January of 2011 and 2012.
I think its a fun competition amongst my friends and I. But I do find it humorous when people are like, "wow what a loser, look at his gamerscore" and I would respond saying: Im sorry I play more games than just call of duty. Burrrrn.
