    my noob friend has 50k+ gamerscore, he was the only one ive ever heard that has made fun of someone for having a low gamerscore (but it was as a joke). achievements are awesome, but i think its not the size of your gamescore but the quality (example: you might have gotten 5,000 kills in Shadowrun but have you gotten a Perfect game in Pac-Man? Which one takes more skill?)

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    Gamerscore obviously doesnt make you good. But it shows how long you have had your Xbox or atleast most of the time. Someone whi 250 gamerscore tends to not know what they are talking about when it comes to the 360. I dont mean they don't know what they're talking abuot when it comes to a certain game, but the actual Xbox. If I were asking about what XBL was like, im going to believe the guy with 5,000 gamerscore over someone with 250 because guess who has had more experience? Atleast... chances are he does...

    I personally don't think there's such thing as a better "gamer" atleast not overall. People are good at the game they play most, or the genre they play the most. Gamescore does not measure how good you are. Because alot of achievements can be gotten if you play a game for a really long time. Like getting 10,000 kills on Gears of War doesn't make you good. It just means you play the game alot.

    I liked the Shadowrun achievements because a lot of them you could get in one game like Godlike but personally I think all achievements should be doing something strategic instead of something you just play a long time to get. TF2 achievements for me were the most disapointing they could have made them much better

    I believe that achievements make the games more entertaining. It gives you something more to do and allows for you and friends to compare your games. Also, when you think about it, achievements are quite similar to that of challenges that you may come across in Mario games such as Mario Strikers Charged and Super Smash Bros Melee.

    achievements are optional. calm down. microsoft doesnt force you to do them. they dont point a gun to your head and scream "YOU DIDNT GET ALL 1000 GAMERSCORE YOU FAIL!" its just for people who like to extend the replay value of games. one of my xbl friends has over 31000 points.

    although i agree, buying a game for the easy gamerpoints is stupid, RENT IT! lol

    edit: speaking of renting for GP, i saw a youtube video of some anime avatar game or sumthing and the guy got 1000 points in the duration of the video, wich was about 2 minutes long i think. im pretty sure it has like 4 achievements.

    Cod4 has a million achivements and stuff to earn but you don't stand a chance against anyone whose been playing for a really long time online.
    None of the achievements for COD 4 are online related, they're all having to do with the campaign and how difficult you make it when you do it.

    I agree for the most part with you Prinny, if the gamerscore counted for something then I wouldn't care at all. Say you get to a certain # and you earn Microsoft points or something. I don't understand people who solely play games just to boost their gamerscore, I try to get most of the achievements for the games I like, but I don't rent/buy random games to boost that score. I like the achievements in themselves, little extra motivation if you know what I mean, but I don't care too much about the gamerscore.
