It's been about 17 years since the Xbox 360 released and achievements became a normal thing in gaming. Sony soon followed suit by adding trophies to PlayStation games. So, nearly 20 years later, what do you think of achievements and trophies in games?
to be honest i like achievements the gratification of something after doing something specific is cool, to be fair i have played alot of games because of achievements and there has been games i said nope to after seeing the achievement list :::coughncaafootball12cough:::

Initially I was enamored with the idea of achievements because I was the guy who kept his GTA 3 save file so I could show that I'd gotten 100% or a Triple Perfect Insane Stunt bonus, etc. Achievements seemed like the way to show that stuff off without having to keep full game saves of old games. I'm not opposed to them now, but I do see a lot of achievements based on blind luck or ridiculous goals (Gears' "Seriously" achievements, I'm looking at you here) as well as "shovelware" just thrown out there that let you get massive GS in a matter of minutes. I see people gaming to get GS rather to enjoy their games. I'm as guilty as the next given that I've been involved in lots of boosting sessions, including for the infamous Seriously achievements. Yes, as you can tell, I hate those Lol
bad thing about achievements is the completionist in me hates having so many unearned achievements due to closed servers, glitched or whatever. i have had conversations with my brother about would i have still played games if it wasn't for achievements and there's a handful i would have probably picked up, but at that matter if there was a way to pay to 0 out earned achievements there is only 1 that i would do that and it would be the only achievement in mega man 9 that i have i was just about to give up completely on that game when i killed the 1000 enemy and pop. my refusal to play ncaa 12 when i had played everything before it was 1 achievement and that was independence because i am a fan of the university of utah and there was not gonna be in way in hell i would have ever played with provo state (utah's rival) and win a national championship
It's discouraging when I run into achievements that are way too difficult to be realistic, but I do think achievements overall have encouraged me to try parts of a game I would have skipped otherwise. It feels like you get to experience more of what the developers wanted when they put all that work in
