Do people still care about gamerscore?

The_Jackel1022d ago

gamerwhat? lol its like trophies/achievements i dont really care about them but then you have people that go nuts for them and try to get them all

PurplePeopleEaters1022d ago

Im sure there are people who do....

GamesMaster19821022d ago (Edited 1022d ago )

Of course people do it gives anotherwise game you paid all that money on more lease of life more reson's to replay and experience stuff that you might not of seen otherwise. I always play my game's the way i want first to experience the story then if i really like it i will go for all the trophys/Achievments.

I was talking about gamerscore though, not achievements...although I agree with what you are saying. I agree that they give you something else to work towards once you finish the game...but do you care about the score you get from it? Like, my gamerscore is 27161 but does that matter? Do I get anything for it? I remember last gen people were trying to get the highest score, but that doesn't really seem like a thing people do anymore. At least from what I have seen.

Gamerscore now earns you money on the rewards site. I've made a few quid and I'm not even an achievement hunter.

I game on both, but I have to say that unlocking a Platinum feels like much more of an accomplishment. To me, it's my gaming legacy. Someone can look at my list and see the games I really loved, which games I was willing to push myself to ace.

I never got into superficial buffing of gamerscore or trophies, like for instance, Greg Miller formerly of IGN. I'll never forget his Platinum of Hannah Montana the Game JUST to get a Platinum. Haha. Just... no. For me, only games I really enjoyed.

They're alright. I've never set out to get points or achievements though. It's just quite good they're there.

There are those that go nuts for gamescore, I myself used to be a gamerscore whore but no more, I just play games and if the score and achievos happens then that's it, I won't go out of my way and spend hours/days/months to work on an achievo no more.

On Xbox, dno about PlayStation, there is even a leader board for gamerscore that is updated every month on who brings the most score in. So yeah it's competitive enough I spose.

Even looks like Microsoft are changing the rewards again, well at least the name from Xbox live rewards to Microsoft rewards, makes it sound a bit more universal for all there devices they're on.

I used to care back on the 360, on xb1 its not really the focus for the system so I dont care other than to finish games

Kavorklestein1021d ago

I'd actually argue that the Xbox One is MORE focused on achievments.
Games have trackers, rare achievements, global percentages, competitive leaderboards for gamerscore, and integration with tru achievements.

It's more about gamerscore than ever before.

Definitely. The Witness is one of the best games this generation and Syndicate is a lot of fun. Both GWG and PS Plus are actually great this month. It's nice to see that both services are consistently offering great games that people really would like to play now because they've both had some rough periods.

PhantomS421022d ago

Haven't play Syndicate so it'll be nice to finally check that out and Dead Space 2 is amazing so not a bad month.

SkippyPaccino1022d ago

Xbox definitely has the edge this month...

GamesMaster19821022d ago

in my opinion as a mainly Playstation player this month's games i think Xbox win's.
