Nothing in a very long time has extended games replayability for me quite like the 360's achievments.

I heard disney was doing something similar, but I wish the ds had a uniersal achievment type feature like the 360.
God how my games would stretch longer.

that would keep the game going for those that want to get every possible thing. but me, i get so many 360 games i move to the next before ever finishing them.

its like being in a food court of a mall and trying the samples but cant decide what to get lol.

one game i am hooked on is rainbow 6 vegas man that game rocks.

I agree I think the achievement system on the 360 is a great feature. I always tried to finish games on other systems 100%, but after I did there was nothing to show that I had completed them, unless I loaded up the save just to look at it.

Now with my 360 I can see what I have done in my games, like a history of my time playing.

It's also great coupled with LIVE because if you are stuck in a game you can check if any of your friends have beaten the game and you can chat with them for advice.

Only trouble is too many people would cheat the system with using something like the R4. Just look how the action replay cheats have ruined online gaming.

Well, since you have 41 freakin' thousand nerd points, I highly doubt that you have friends that have beaten games that you haven't.

It's not that many, I have owned my 360 for like 2 years, so that's only like 20 games per year, which is in turn about 2.5 weeks per game. Very easy to finish games in that much time, especially when it's my major hobby.

When I first started out I asked people for help on Oblivion, and more recently I asked a guy for help on Crackdown.

Do you boost, or do you go all legit?

I suggest renting avatar and TMNT if you already havent. easy 2000 right there, avatar only takes 6 minutes. I rented it, got the achievment, went back to the store and said the box behind the game must have been wrong because I did not mean to rent avatar I meant to rent condemned and they just swapped em out.

No I don't boost multiplayer achievements or use game saves, I try to play the games for fun and if I get gamerscore then great.

The only boosting I have ever done was on games where the multiplayer was dead and nobody was playing it any more. Even then it wouldn't amount to much.

I've finished TMNT but I wanted to play that, at this stage I have no desire to play Avatar, maybe later if I'm really bored.

Personally I find the whole concept of achievements fairly pointless and I am usually a great fan of messing around trying to get the game to do stupid things.

I used to think they were pointless aswell, then I got my own. For the first week I didn't care, then I saw that I had a couple thousand points and something just clicked. I started replaying through all of my older games, and cursing at my TV as I attempt to get the mile high achievement for COD4
