    None really. It's like a high score, the lists can be viewed online.

    so it's like just for the feeling of "accomplishment"?

    Pretty much. Afaik you can't actually do anything with your gamerscore.

    It's really just an extra thing to do. It makes you play different parts of games that you might not have normally played, but ended up liking. Getting achievements in my opinion is just another fun thing to do.

    Very true. I can't imagine anyone shooting the 200 pigeons in GTA IV just for fun.

    Also achievements can be used to unlock items and such (Armors in Halo 3).

    Lol yeah, I just saw those unlockable 'Splosion Man avatar items. It's just an average shirt with some designs on them.
