Pixelitis Picks: Suggested achievements/trophies for classic games

During E3 2005, there was a whole boatload of pomp and circumstance surrounding Microsoft’s reveal of the Xbox 360. From the gamercard to the design of the console itself, press and fans alike ate it all up. It was the new hotness – something to sink our teeth into in just a few short months.

While most people were pouring over the big picture stuff, no one could have predicted it would be the mention of a “gamerscore” and “achievements” that would spread and endure in the gaming industry well after most 360s red-ringed.

Although a universal system of achievements has only been around for a handful of years, they’ve gotten so ubiquitous that it’s hard to imagine life without them.

Today, it’s everywhere. In the form of “trophies” with Sony’s PlayStation Network, Steam Achievements, and even in some Nintendo titles like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the 3DS’ StreetPass Plaza. They’ve even made their mark on the iOS and Android mobile game market.

In this week’s Pixelitis Picks, we look back on gaming’s past and wonder what accomplishments deserved enough praise to warrant a little message and a pleasant sound effect, giving the kudos we so deserved. (Culture, Dark Cloud 2, Earthbound, Nintendo, Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red, PS2, Retro)
