If you like achievements you might wonder why computer games don't have them. See if you agree with me.
Some games support achievements on steam :)
What a stupid article. =/
Very ignorant article.
It's airborne gamer, what did you expect? They're the ones with the flamebait gay gamer convention article too. This is a true video game "blog" people.
Yeah I was going to bring up steam good point. The one reason is that there really isnt one dedicated company you have to go through to make PC games. Want to make a MS game? Got to abide by their rules. Want to make a Sony game? same thing applies. Of course if the PC was ever in a way where I had to go to any one company to buy one I'd probably pass. While I like my consoles its the open nature of the PC and that I can have it as powerful or as week as I want it to be, that I enjoy the most @darkride, You are still on ignore and still full of BS but leave your little rant and move on.Oh and still pathetic
games that support GFWL(Games for Windows Live) actually have achievements, one of those games is GTA IV...
I wish there was a unified achievement system for all PC games. Well, I'd actually prefer something more like trophies which distinguish between difficulty of the achievement and is not just an empty number.
There was it was called Live for Windows which is now free. The only way for it to work is for an agreement with every company that makes games to fall under.
Some people like Transformers, I see your more a Go-Bots kinda person. On topic, I don't own a PC, but if I did I'd wish there were a unified Achievement system for sure.
Those aren't empty numbers. The value numbers reflect the difficulty of the achievement. Trophies simplify this, but numbers are never empty (everyone understands that 40 is more than 10). Trophies is the same as achievements, expressed in a graphical way. So talking down achievements does not change the fact that trophies ia a copy and nothing more.
Not when you see the aggregate number, it's just an empty number whereas platinums, golds, silvers and bronzes distinguish difficulty and number of completed games. At least on PS3 if I get a platinum I know I got every trophy in the original game, on 360 I can get 1000 points but all the additional DLC achievement points don't allow me to reflect that I've "completed" the everything in the original (DLC free) game. Sometimes I buy game on my PS3 just because I like trophies so much better. I'm tired of getting 1000 points and completing the game then having DLC disallow me from representing full completion - platinum trohies always ensures that a person that get all the trophies in the original game is entitled to 100% completion status. DLC should not effect whether I have full completion of my original purchase. 360s achievement system sucks imo, they need something akin to a platinum trophy so DLC doesn't literally take away accomplishments.
If you 1000g a game it shows you've competed it on the dashboard tab. People try and spin it both ways but they are all the same thing at the end of the day.
It's called steam....… The uneducated baffle me...
Pure ignorance lol http://uk.ign.com/wikis/dia... http://tf2wiki.net/wiki/Hea... http://steamcommunity.com/s... ... need i go on ?
Why are people disagreeing. Steam has achievements.
N4G does not have the brightest of trolls.
Probably the author and the peeps who approved this fiction.
Steam has them but unless im mistaken, you can't compare them nor do they even show up on your profile. So whilst nice to have, many people will see them as pointless if they can't properly compete. (i might be wrong though)
So what BF3 achievements do you have on Steam... Again, a unified, ubiquitous achievement system on PC would be great.
Well you have Achievements for 360, Trophies for PS3 and Ego for PC
I lol'd. +Bubbles.
steam has achievements star craft 2 has achievements
WoW has had them as well. And GW2 has them when it comes out Sat (pre-purchase).
never been bothered with achievements in games, unless they yield some reward like in WoW.
Same with Team Fortress 2. You get new weapons and such for getting certain achievements.
Yeah for me it needs to be tangible
lol... just lol...
The difference between consoles and computers is the fact that one is owned fully by one single Publisher, and most developers need to follow their rules and such. One being Sony and Microsoft must have trophies/achievements. PC on the other hand isn't solely meant for gaming. It's just a small fraction of PC uses. So when you look at PC, it gives you plenty of options for one single platform (Steam, Origin, GFWL, etc). As for the title of this article, Steam has achievements. And if you're gaming on PC, Steam SHOULD be on your computer. So there isn't any reason to complain. Just yell at those developers who make PC games unavailable on Steam instead.
Last I checked some PC games have achivements. Some even have Live Achivements. What rock are you living under?
Read the article? he mentions it.
I usually read articles posted here before commenting, but this is an exception. I smelled bullshit and didn't bother clicking on the article. I suppose a misleading title and description was used as an attempt to create controversy. Controversy works very well with collecting more site traffic, and dare I say, more ad revenue.
who cares about achievements if the game is good... And if you do care for them, tell me a good reason why? besides increasing your Xboxlive/GFWL/Steam online popularity Unless it gives you something tangible (like the BF3 assignments), I see achievements as a console (now steam) strategy to keep gamers (read kids) interested
Steam achievement got me some games, add-ons, discounts, tradeable goods, etc. It happened sometime last holiday.
for real?!!! I didn't know that. I have to look into it. Thanx
the only achievement i strive for is the one where my opponent can be heard crying over Teamspeak, Skype, or Ventrilo after i have completely crushed him/her in what ever game we were playing. as far as single player i like seeing all the endings but running around finding all 1000 blue orbs just to get a trophy that has nothing to do with the game itself is not my style.
Steam achievements say hi.
Read the article.
steam have some achievements... If you dont know what your talking about shut the hell up, noob!
If you would actually READ the article. you would see that he mentions steam
Steam isn't the only one, GFWL and Xfire say hi.
This article is a piece of trash. There ARE achievements on Steam. Hell, Windows Live enabled games have Xbox Live achievements...
Also, Ubisoft games since they track what you do in the game and earn those annoying points.
Stop approving these type of articles.
I know they do in Starcraft and dawn of war 2
I hate this article for 2 reasons: A. Yes they fucking do have achievments B. The first sentence is "I am a gaming girl; yes, I know we have determined this already." WHO FUCKING ASKED YOU?!
Achievements are kind of the most overrated thing in gaming this era. No amount of achievements will ever make me want to play a game any more than I already do, and won't convince me to play a bad game. They should focus on something that actually matters.
stop pirating your games and maybe you will unlock them on steam or gfwl
I always tought acheivements where stupid, they give nothing at all
the retards like collecting them, i know a few lol
