This article describes five behaviors that go above and beyond normal achievement hunting, suggesting a severe Gamerscore addiction.
im nowhere near that bad. did not play kids games (apart from Kung Fu panda that came with my xbox and was NOT EASY FOR ACHIEVEMENTS) and i don't use a robot or play hannah montana. those 5 signs are BAD.. but i do like my gamerscore
There are people that still care about gamerscore?
I would definitely say if you find yourself following in the path of any one of these warning signs, you may have a problem, haha. Gamerscore is a great idea and concept, but I'd love to see it yield more tangible rewards for those who are truly dedicated to it.
It would be nice to gain something in-game from the achievements that constantly pop up. I still believe that a higher gamerscore tends to tell a bit more about the player than people think. You have to play A LOT of games to get what is considered to be a respectable score...The only way you do that is by playing games outside of the popularity charts as well. And without a doubt it may be bit tacky to get an achievement for random things in-game but it is also somehow genuinely satisfying.
