Sony and Microsoft have changed gaming for those interested, yet are they a good or bad thing. Msxbox-world takes a look at the negatives of Achievements and Trophies in games.
As for shelving games after getting all the achievements, odds are I would've shelved the game long before that if they weren't there.
Trophies/Achievements made games more 'usefull'. It's a little thing but it helps alot in playing games longer.
I have a gamerscore of 148,999 and have seen the good, the bad and ugly of achievements.
TBH, I love the trophy aspect of games. It really adds a whole new element that was previously unavailable pre-trophies.
If you get obsessed, otherwise they are just a nice extra objective
I can't get enough of trophies.
Double edged sword. Some good points raised though.
