Im wanting to know your thoughts on this as more and more games have them and as such require online connection and are even used as reasons for harder anticheating protection and account banning.

I can remember back when(im only 32) simply beating a difficult level or boss or even completing a game was enough,now it seems we require a pat on the back from the game itself.Do we really feel great when we get a achievement for completing the tutorial or using a weapon you have to pick up and then use for the first time? or im i not enough of a gamer and am missing something

It's something to make the game more interesting though I don't like it online a whole lot. I completely forgot StarCraft 2 came with achievements until yesterday when I got one for playing the comp stomp mode where battle.net teams you up with 2 random people to fight 3 computers on various difficulty settings.

Single player achievements are cool though.

interesting in the way that they encourage you to get them and in doing so are subvertly controlling your gaming over and past the ingame coding baabaa

I personally like the achievements. I dont NEED them in a game, but I do like getting them. In some games, it adds replayability that those games didn't have otherwise.

They are important for me and i hardly try to get em, if i like the game.
Since i am always online and my friends check my achievements i get kind of respect if i am playing that game with my friends.
I made Afro Samurai 1000G and most of my friends tell me how did you do that? so i get kind of a self confident.

Hmm

They are important for you, yet you hardly try to get them?
You get respect from your friends by playing video games?
If gives you self-confidence to get gamerscore?

Wow

In what concerns the thread itself, I only care with Shogun 2: Total War, just because unlocking Steam achievements actually grants you unlocks for multiplayer.

Otherwise no, not so much, except Team Fortress 2 just because they're so many and I almost have them all (got most of them by accident, now I do try to get the ones I lack).

I don't really care about achievements in games. I play games simply for fun. After finishing I only go for achievements which need a little more to be completed. Like, killing 5000 enemies and I have 4950, or play the game for 250 hours and I have 247 for example.
