So what do you guys think of this? I see that game achievements show up in/on the game page, but how hard would it be to also have say a badge that is connected to a certain game or series show up on said game series. Yes that would mean multiple games would get a feed post that so and so just unlocked the badge for playing any Madden game. If that is not liked or is a little too much then maybe we can target just specific badges; like complete any game in such in such series or any specific badge for any specific game to show on that games feed too. What I'm saying is that I would like to see some sort of badge acknowledgement on game feeds. Of course if it's just me that would like to see this then nevermind, but I'm curious as to if anyone else would like to see this in some way. If it's too much work too then nevermind, because I'd like resources to be tasked for better use.

Wow, usually I think your ideas are terrible but this is pretty cool idea. Not that I spend any time on individual game pages, but I still like the idea.

And since the fascination on this site is badges more than anything else, I see no reason not to include them where applicable.

I'll gather more feedback on this and revisit later.

First thought: A series badge awards the first time you play a game in the series, let's say Gears of War. Today I decide to play Gears, Gears 2, Gears 3, and Gears 4, for the first time each, in that order. As the site is scanning me for the day, seeing I played Gears is going to kick off "Earn the Series Badge" yes? Then, that is the game that awarded me the series badge, so, it goes on there.

Second thought: Same situation as above, and multiple games qualify for the same badge award, let each game show that badge rewarded that day. So, Gears 1, 2, 3, and 4 would each show I earned the "Play a Gears Game" Badge. Since we are talking about the games page, it isn't going to clutter anything too much, since each game page is just showing you earning the badge once.
