What do you think of them?
>"Dude, just play the game" AchievementsGenerally worthless and meaningless, their only value is to determine a percentage for how many people on a given platform are shitters who can't even beat the fucking tutorial.>Do hard stuff AchievementsGood, a great way to track important stuff.>Do X a shitload of timesWorthless.>Do X except it's time-limited or requires you to play with the dev (and there's no alternative)Fucking cancer.
>>166573i was addicted to achievements more than crack but now achievements suck ass any you get them in 10 seconds
Couldn't care less
>>166573So long as an achievement is open ended, it's fine. So every time you clear an achievement, the count goes up by one.eg/>Engineer to Eternity: Kill an Engineer as he repairs his sentry gun while it's under enemy fire. Every time you kill such an Engie, your Engineer to Eternity achievement levels up by 1.
>>166573nu-achievements suck ass, they are either just easy progress or some convoluted shit you can just cheese anyways.Multiplayer-centered cheevos are fine despite been playerbase dependant. If the game was good and the achievements worth getting the game wouldn't be dead anyways.I rather challenge myself with my own "achievements" like beating Ocarina of Time without tunics or beating an action game without gearing up.
>>166578by "shitter" you mean "game journalist"
>>169024>30% of a game's total owners are games journalistsDoubt, but good joke, Anon.
>beat the entire game without ever dying>beat the entire game within this time limitif you're a dev and you put these cheevos in your game, unironically consider suicide
>>166578>their only value is to determine a percentage for how many people on a given platform are shitters who can't even beat the fucking tutorialpretty sure this stat is polluted by people who buy the game and dont play it or they're bots who just trade the game without playing it.
>>166573I have a troopher addiction. Been so since 2005 with Xbox 360. It's definitely a love or hate of an idea that came out of Microsoft no less when it comes to profile achievements. It all comes down to how the achievements are done. I'm playing Halo MCC atm, and the achievements in that game are actually pretty damn sane and enjoyable to do. Only ones I do not care for are "Get 100 splatter/explosive kills in H2A" I mean, I get that H2A's MP was the crowning new feature for Halo in 2014, but due to the limited number of maps and the fact that the game came out in 2019 on the PC, it's taken a backseat to Reach and 3.
>>166591>nu-achievements suck assWhat's that even suppose to mean. Do you remember the Xbox 360 launch lineup? Half the games people would rent/buy like King Kong were bought because it was an easy 1000g for just completing the game compared to Perfect Dark Zeros "Kill 10k players in a game that will be dead in 6 months" for 30g
>>169024This is Half-Life 2's global achievement stats. 34% of them never completed past the 1st chapter.
>>16926142.6% Submissive>They picked up the can
>>169261These kinds of stats are shit to go by. The percentage is calculated from the total amount of owners. It's a better assumption that a majority of Half Life owners just simply haven't played it. Given that it came in a bundle with one of the most popular games on Steam really just drives the point home.
>caring about achievements
i dont even pay attention to achievements but i'm in my 30s
>>166573If they are not too grindy and I enjoy the game they are attached to, I tend to go for them
>>169542Someone is going to call you a "boomer" soon
>>170945>>169542More like based. Caring about achievements is retarded. I had a period in my life where I wouldn't play some games because I'd see the achievements and think it could be too hard or just impossible (like those L4D event-locked achievements) and ended up missing up on good times.
I'm generally fine with them if they don't require you to actually go out of your way to make other people waste time / do some dumb shit that only you benefit from. Even RS2 with its 100+ achievements is fine, as you can unlock most of them by simply playing the game, but it does have some of the most obscure and unattainable shit that makes you wonder if the devs ever bothered to actually play the fucking game they clearly didn't
>>166573the only achievements that matter are on the console because you can just manually unlock steam achievements.
>>171060I get what your saying anon, but seriously>Achievements/Trophies>MatteringJust enjoy the game
