If you're serious about your Gamerscore, then you'll definitely be interested in these 5 priceless Achievement hunting tips direct from Stallion83 (aka Raymond Cox). He's the man with the world's highest Gamerscore.
Get a Life. cause no one cares about your gamerscore ESP when it's full of bargainbin games
I like getting as many trophies as I can but It's not worth it to play bad games for them. I have yet to buy a game just for trophies. I have 12 platinums and they're all from good games.
Yeah but the article is about playing pretty much anything just to boost your score So I agree with bulletproof that once it becomes a worthless number once your play any crap just to get easy points
When I got PS3 i loved platinums, bought Alone in the Dark, hated it from the start, but i platinumed it, now I;m not into platinuming everything just best games AitD hurts mu eyes on trophy list, that's the game I played just for trophies, I whored it umm sad me. I wonder how much time he spends on his favourite games :)
I only play games I like .......or I think I will like. I had a few games that I got that ended up sucking I'm sure we all have
Yeah... I'm pretty embarrassed that I platted Terminator Salvation! But hey, at least the few other people on my friends list who even have a platinum all did it too, so we can share in the embarrassment and laughter together.
@BULLETVESS - The fact that you clicked on the article and commented before it was approved shows that you care. Silly troll.
"Like having the most gamerscore in the world makes you an achievement earning enthusiast or something. Nobody cares about your phoney tips. I mean look at this; "Get the ball rolling and play these games: Avatar: The Burning Earth, Backyard Football '10, NBA2k6, NHL2k6, College Hoops 2k6, MLB2k6, Surf's Up, Truth or Lies, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. That should be 8,000 quick points in a day. Even for the busiest of gamers, a weekend is doable. A great way to get a jump start." The guy gives these tips to the people who wants to be like him it seems. People who think bigger gamer score = bigger virtual penis. Not for the people who wants to earn achievements a bit easier.
Ok let's sum up what stallion said. Basically play any shitty game with easy achievements, and voila! You are the best gamer in the "world". I bet 90% of his games were horrid.
Ill bet that guy isnt nearly as handsome as his gamercard pic implies.
As if the trolls on n4g have lives. At least this guy is doing something worthwhile not living on n4g trolling.
How is playing video games almost every minute of the day or playing every dang game ever even if it's bad "worthwhile"? Video games are meant to be leisure entertainment. Not a 24/7 life consuming event. And dude, take your own advice on the trolling issue.
"Worthwile" is completely subjective. If i thought staring at my chair all day was fun that would be worthwile to me.
"Worthwhile" is subject But if it IS worthwhile, you should be able to explain WHY it's worthwhile. Which sak500 obviously is incapable of doing. Just look at his comment. He clearly feels "trolling" isn't worthwhile yet he does it on a daily basis.
I agree with lodossrage. Playing games you'd normally have no interest in for the sake of boosting a number next to your GamerTag/ID isn't what most people would call "worthwile".
"Worth while" you say?? i don't think there is ANY benefit of having a high achievement/trophy count other than bragging rights
i dont see the superior value of playing Hanna montana for trophies/achievements . Even as a game , it still doesnt even beat trolling on n4g Anyway , "When you're playing Kiss on My Deity, you know you're only in it for the Achievements" . Except for those who you know understand the story , and play those games actually for their possible qualities , not some silly score .
It is no where near that serious.
so his e-peen is bigger than mine? that's not something to be proud of...
If you enjoy playing video games just like the rest of us then go for it!
I never play shitty games for gamer-score.
I like trophies/achievements as much as the next person but buying games PURELY because of them? That's a big no-no for me. I play games I enjoy, not for the e-reward.
He's a member on Trueachievements.com, so am I. There are some others that are kind of close to his score. Mine's 107,000+ ATM. I have played a couple of crappy games for a quick 1,000. I played Avatar TBE and Terminator Salvation but other than that I got my score legit by playing good games. Go for the million man!
I don't believe in forcing myself to play a games like Hannah Montana just to hike up my gamerscore and my trophy count. Honestly I would be embarassed if someone checked out my game history and saw that game on my consoles. Quite honestly playing a crappy game to have a big gamer score is pointless and it ruins the gaming fun, As for the guy who has the highest gamerscore congrats it shows you have no life and probably no girlfiend and your old news like the guy on Myspace who has 2 million friends.
Achievement and Trophies are simply your gaming resume. Nothing more. It shows people what games you have played and generally how well you played them. I find they extend the re-playability of some games as well as add another dimension of objectives. I also find they are handy for checking up on people to see how many games they have played. You read a bad review of a game from someone or another person brags about finishing the game, but you check their trophies/gamerscore and find they never finished the game or did so only on "Easy Mode".
Completely agree, thats why i think sony should do a fw upgrade so even games without throphy support end up in the trophy list, kinda like original xbox games on the 360. That way i wouldnt have to ask all friends i make on psn what pre trophy games they have.
is that the guide to have NO LIFE ?
It's funny because there is an interview with him somewhere and he has a life, a gf, and a lot of other things. He isn't just some loser who plays games all day.
this just makes me sad on so many levels and it has nothing to do with his lack of a life, if he indeed lacks one making a customer want to buy games to increase their "gamerscore" is straight out of a dystopian sci-fi novel. Phillip K Dick would be disappointed...
wish I could delete some games from my history even if lowering my gamerscore. I like getting as close to 100% achievements of my worthwhile games as possible, though. stop hating on Stallion83. some people will do all kinds of stupid [email protected] just to get in Guinness - why single out this guy for criticism? even though I wouldn't try it myself I can respect the effort put into 500,000+.
I wonder how he stacks up to hakoom, the guy/gal who got most trophies. And how many games did this guy get 100% on? Hakoom have over 120 platinum trophis if im not mistaken.
Hakoom actually has a few of his trophies hacked. He even told me about how he actually paid some girl to do it for him. And honestly, it makes sense because he had the online trophies to certain games before their servers were even up
Yeah, but then your friends look through your achievements and realize 90% of them are random japanese games! I guess it's fine if you want to be No.1 in the world, but for someone who's RL friends play with them, it's kind of embarrassing.
I am just okay with achievements/gamerscore that pops out when I am playing a game. If I could've convert them to real money then why not. Otherwise not worth it.
