He actually does man, I thought the same thing ages ago, but if you check out his website you'll see he actually is a busy dude.

Busy messing around with the various games you mean.

When he plays the same game twice, either from the different region or platform, that's a bit much.

Which is ironic, he probably has more life than lugia 4000....

what a nerd

What's the average gamer score?

Blacktric2392d ago (Edited 2392d ago )

Depends on how long you've been playing. Most people I know (who owns their consoles for 2-3 years) has at least 30k. If you focus on getting achievements then it should be around 50-70k. If you own the console for a year or two, 10-20k is the average IMO.

I got around 40,000 and I play the XBOX about 3 or 4 times a week, not trying to get achievements for most games.

Some games, however, I try to get them all.

Ive had a 360 for 4 years and I only have 20,000. I play and finish alot of games but some on PC or PS3 and only get alot of the achievements in a few of the games.

But I have friends that have had their 360 for 3 years and they only have like 5000. They only play a few games. I dont ever see people online with even 100,000. If I ever have I would have been thinking thats alot of achievements.

600,000 is pretty ridiculous, 100,000 for each year since 360 came out.

>5,000 && <10,000 ?

ChiVoLok02392d ago

Gotta agree with lugia 4000 then

TheDareDevil2392d ago

It's around 11,000 according to MS

tplarkin72392d ago

I've owned a 360 since launch and mine is over 35,000. I've played about 70 games.

_Aarix_2391d ago

Bout 10000 every year and a half unless all you do is online

Back when I had a 360 my gamer scores was just under 7000 and I had it for a year...

ufo8mycat2392d ago

Thats the problem with achievements, they really don't indicate whether the person just played a lot of games or whether he 'platinumed' a lot of games?

He could of just got all the easy achievements from A LOT of games to get to that total, but hasen't actually gotten 1000g/1000g for many games.

just look at his trueachievement page, you will see he completes a lot of games.


radphil2392d ago

1/2 of them are sports or kids games.

He had the time to complete Wall-e and Hot wheels twice, but couldn't get past Disc 2 of Lost Odyssey. :p

That's true. I play Forza Motorsport most days. I only have 110 achievement points but am in the top 1000 (1%) for lap times. On paper I look crap but it's likely I'll hand you your ass online.
Iv got a friend who play games for achievements and brag rights and it's sad as he isn't honing his skills.
Sometimes it's good when the achievement provides a purposeful skilled challenge but what gets me is people just grinding a game they don't dig a bunch for a lame virtual trophy.
