    So now that I'm registered for Xbox Live, I figure it's about time to start showing the world how much of a loser I am and rack up on my gamerpoints.

    Right now, I'm working on getting every orb and stunt marker in Crackdown, while occasionally working on others: Completing all songs as lead guitarist for Guitar Hero III, completing all songs as backup guitarist for GH3 & Aerosmith, and completing and five-starring every song on co-op career on every difficulty.

    The only game I have 1000/1000 in is Halo 3, however I'm very close in Vegas, Vegas 2, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and a few others.

    Total GP? 8946

    I have 23 Medic Achievments and 23 Pyro achievments in Team Fortress 2, which is the only game in the world where there's a point to achievment crunching.

    None for me yet (just got my XBOX a few months ago). Almost got Assassin's Creed though. Just need to go flag hunting again.

    Of course, many games I won't get 1000/1000 because I don't play online, but meh, whatever.

    I recently acquired it in Lego: TCS. That's the only one, though.

    My next best is 720 in Sega Rally, but haven't played it in so long I think I'm too out of practice. :p

    I'm 1000/1000 only on COD4. I'm only missing the bloody Overkill achievement for Halo 3 and that one is a @#$% to get right now. I think other games where I've racked up a good number of achievements are BioShock and GTA IV.

    I've got 1000 on Madden 06 and 08.
    I'm just missing the 100% on Lego SW TCS only because I'm not looking forward to running around getting the blue canisters. It'll bore me to death. :p
    Gunning for 1000 on Lego Indy though, fun game, if I can pull myself away from Civ Rev long enough :p

    It does, not least because you've just wandered round getting all the white canisters, and then ploughed through the levels again doing the superstories! :p

    Exactly. The thought of playing through every level for the third time is what keeps that game on the shelf. :p

    1000/1000??? No way.

    The closest I've come is on GTA4, HALO3 and Virtua Tennis 3, all have about 400 [face_dancing]

    Then again I consider myself to a more casual gamerays nowad, plus I don't play online. Ever.

    Rented Madden 09, got the 1000/1000 after a few games. On a related note, also got the 200/200 on the LIVEarcade of EA Sports NFL live draft tracker, and will be getting the NFL game tracker next Thursday when it comes out. For those getting it, remember to log in right away when you get it on Thurs 9/4 to get the Thursday game login achievement.

    Next game up for me: POTC: At World's End. That and finish LEGO SW CS and LEGO Indy. I had 9700-something two weeks ago, and I'm now over 11000; goal is to finish the year over 20,000.

    I got 1000/1000 on Aerosmith a while back. Haven't had access to Live for the rest of the Guitar Hero III achievements I need, and I can't find anyone competent enough to get me a 2,000 note streak in a co-op match on Guitar Hero II. Working on Call of Duty 4 right now, that's going to take a while because I suck at FPSes, I've finished Act 1 on Veteran. Mass Effect is coming along slowly but surely.

    Ditto, re: Oblivion. Also, Call of Duty 2, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and The Force Unleashed. Making nice headway on Fable II, though the forthcoming DLC will probably expand the work I have to do. Working on Fallout 3 right now, but suspect it'll be awhile. Obtaining them in GTA IV just takes fricking forever.

    Paradoxically, though, on the whole, Achievement-whoring is just retarded. I know that's a hypocritical thing to say, but there it is. They're fine when they're an organic part of the gameplay. But when it's something like, "Finish entire level holding controller upside-down," that's when they get a little ridiculous.

    Mega Man 9 has one called "Finish the game without missing a shot." Now, come on. Madden '08 has stuff like "Score 100,000 touchdowns," which should just be, "Play this ****ing game for the rest of your life." Those Achievements are for people without jobs or lives.

    The Orange Box still remains the gold standard for creative, organic, fun, and rewarding Achievements. I've yet to be so proud of an Achievement than I was while earning The One Free Bullet.

    I only have 100% (1250/1250) in Oblivion, I was about 99% in Halo 3 before they added another 700 points or so. [face_talk_hand]

    I really hate the multiplayer achievements. They shouldn't be allowed, what if you only have a silver account? 1000 points will always be impossible to achieve.

    Also, I'm getting very close to 100% in BioShock, but I still have yet to pick up every last gene tonic (including "Hacker's Delight 3"), mostly because I keep on harvesting (not rescuing) the Little Sisters. Yeah, that's how I roll.

    I created all of the plasmids in the U-Invent, and I made sure to pick up all of the plasmids along the way, but for some reason I keep putting this one off.

    They call 'em Trophies over on my console, but I got 100% on CoD:WaW back in November and I'm currently on about 48% in BioShock and Battlefield:BC, and 42% on Resistance2

    I'd have plenty of trophies on Fallout 3 and Uncharted if they had released them with Trophy support instead of patching it in much later on [face_frustrated]


    And because it was mentioned earlier, TF2 Achievements! I only need to get Pyromancer and I'll have all 39 Pyro achievements, and I have 21 for Heavy (so close to KGB!)

    Recently had to start a new gamertag because I encountered a glitch in Call of Duty 4 that would have prevented me from ever getting all 1000 points for it (doesn't sound like a big deal, but I'm a perfectionist, and being stuck at 980/1000 forever would have killed me). Apparently making the game black and white disables achievements (it says so in the very fine print at the bottom that is hardly readable on an SDTV), and when I got my 15th piece of intel... no satisfying bleep.

    Anyway, I'm at around 6,500 now. My main focuses are GTA IV and Lego Batman, while I'm also working on Mirror's Edge and BioShock (just recently beat that for the first time... :eek: ).
