I enjoy Achievements/Trophies, but their emphasis in the gaming world these days is a bit extreme. I'll take extra gameplay -- heck, even one extra level or one extra weapon -- instead of all those Achievements/Trophies.

People don't argue as much about Achievements as they used to now that PSN has Trophies. Woooo, I remember back when people claimed that Achievements alone made the 360 worth buying. Now it's not so big of an issue since both consoles have them.

Achievements/Trophies are an EXCELLENT idea to give games extra replay value....an extra "level" or "weapon" does NOT give the amount of "replay" value that trying to reach certain achievements/trophies does.
