Achievements have been part of many video games since the release of Xbox 360. But are they good or bad? I find myself remembering playing classic video games when I were a child, playing such games as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64, which is my all time favourite. Although since having an Xbox 360 for 3-4 years now I have become to enjoy gaining achievements on my favourite games, racking up a high gamerscore and even re-playing such games like Fallout 3. But recently I wondered about buying another generation console from my childhood to relive moments, such as Crash Bandicoot or that classic Tony Hawk Pro-Skater. Despite how great these games are im still a bit upset about not gaining achievements, I mean come on being rewarded for playing a game can become a bit obsessive, I even find myself playing longer hours than I would normally for maybe a 5G/10G achievement.
So are achievements good or bad? Do you care much for achievements or do you struggle playing a retro game without that classic sound effect popping up every-time you fulfil something within a game. Give me some feedback on what YOU think. Thanks guys.
