Gaming guilty pleasures, the allure of Achievement Unlocked

8bitbrigade: Life, for a gamer, is usually filled with those triple A, blockbuster titles. If you could take a snapshot of a every persons gamer profile on XBox.com, you would be hard pressed to find a person that has not played Halo 3, Call of Duty, Project Gotham Racing, any of the numerous Madden titles.

You might be thinking to yourself what kind of point I am trying to make by stating the obvious. If you will indulge me, I'll get this train into that station eventually. We all know and love these titles, for that is what makes us gamers. However, lurking under the surface are those things that many try hard to bury. Some are sucessful and their guilty secrets never see the light of day. While still others let those embarassing entries show because they are not concearned about the reaction of their fellow gamers. Or maybe it is because they choose to view those games as a sort of badge that screams "I am a gamer, I care not what you may think of me by the games that I keep!"

Part of being in the public eye, perhaps a tad more then the typical gamer, I wear my gamercard like a badge. I fully admit to being an achievement whore and enjoy seeing my gamerscore climb. Given a choice between systems on a multi-platform title, the 360 will always be my console of choice. (Xbox 360)
