I just wanted to open a discussion about boosting for leaderboards an for achievement points. To be honest what is the deal with people who have to do this? Do saying you earned game points you didn't make you a better gamer? I know someone who has 80000 gamer score he has achievements in all these games but you can tell he unlocked these achievement through means not known to me. When an achievement is unlocked online you can see a date when you unlocked it when your on xbox.com. He has the summer and spring achievement in Texas heat for full house poker with no date. Now the only way you can play texas heat is online. So if he has no date on this he had to get it through means not ethical.
I am not bringing this up to call this person a cheat. The reason I am bringing this up is to talk about what is ethical in online gaming. All of us who are in this community have played games where we know for a fact that the person has either modded the game or boosted their score up on the leaderboards. This to me is sad that people have to do this. The only person who is being cheated when you boost is yourself. You are losing the great stories that many games have because you don't want to spend the hours of game play unlocking the achievements the way they were meant to be done. Also when you boost on the leaderboards you are only hurting yourself because you are losing the hours of game play that not only you share in the community, but you also lose skills that you could learn by just simply playing the game. So this is to anyone who has the feeling they have to do this; you are just hurting yourself. Feel free to comment as I really want to open this topic up for a true discussion.
