Online achievements suck.I can't count the games i do not play online because nobody is playing the game (you can't buy every game on release)or (like chromehounds)the servers r dead.

Not to mention how easily it is to glitch and add 15k a day to your score.

They mean nothing.

Unlocking Achievements in a title update is the most idiotic thing I ever heard there is better ways to fix dead achievements like changing how you get them.

jerethdagryphon2367d ago

if servers go down permently theres no way to get them or if a ocmpany doesnt patch broken functions theres n oway to get them

giving the proken or nolonger atainable ones by a title update is reasonable, it gives a sort of satisfaction for finishing it off even if it leaves a slightly bitter taste.

changing the way online achivments are gotte is a good idea and companys needs to consider before putting rediculous ones in

What I meant if there is an achievement thats says: Kill 10 players in single ranked multiplayer match, they could change it to Kill 10 players in a single local multiplayer match.

I like how Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 have little to no online trophies/achievements. People should play online because they like it not because they are trying to "complete" a game. I'm not a fan of when a game has more then 300 points devoted to online unless it doesn't have any other mode.

I hate them as well, I enjoy maxing my games and having a nice 1000/1000 or whatever, and nothing should be unachievable in your game that you paid for. People boosting and stuff online helping each other get achievements and the like is utter balls and destroys the game for genuine players that maybe dont even care about achievements. Definitely should stick to just having them in single player if possible.
