I thought it would be cool to have a thread just for gamerscore and achievement hunting discussion. What's your score? What's your goal? What are your proudest accomplishments, and what games are you working on currently?

 

Resources:

 

- TrueAchievements - awesome suite of stat-tracking tools (CAG leaderboard)

- Xbox Achievements - the best place for achievement guides, walkthroughs, and discussion on specific games

- My Gamer Profile, Exophase, Xbox Gamertag - a few popular gamercard generators

 

Achievement hunter PSAs:

 

- Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious is free until 4/10. It's an easy 1000 on Xbone in around 3 hours. The Xbox 360 version is more challenging but still doable.

- Child of Light is currently a free Game with Gold on Xbox One. An easy (and fun!) completion, but will require a ~12 hour time commitment.

Awesome. Just bookmarking this.

Current gamerscore is 42,128. Getting 1000/1000 in Diablo three will be the death of me. My proudest gamerscore moment was getting 1000/1000 in dark souls. I think it's the only game I've completed 100%! I'll be playing DS2 on X1 starting tonight.


Edit: oh, and I'm always down to help out anyone, just message me on xbl. GT is tandjame

Ok, so I dont have anything to report on gamescores or achivements ( its best if I dont :) ). But, since this is XBox related I will tag along and someday I can post my proud moment too...or not.

Oh, the dreaded "non zero or five" gamerscore! What game put you in this predicament?

I can't remember what it's called, but it's the black and white puzzle game on 360. The one where every level looks like an M.C. Escher drawing. Threes on xbone didn't help either. It's all good, though. I've come to terms with it!

Yes! Bookmarked!
I'm on TA (same screen name/gamertag)
Finished a boosting session last night with a buddy for one of the Castle Crasher achievements, so always looking for friends who hunt achievements as much as I do.
Currently at 154,240 Gamerscore. Rising daily!

That reminds me, everyone should sign up for the CAG TA leaderboard if you're not already!

 

I love that TA tracks streaks now, it's a fun meta-goal along with completion percentage. I will admit to saving games with easy achievements, like Dead or Alive 5, for times when I needed a quick pop to keep a streak going. Also, there have been times when it was close to midnight and I knew I was about to pop an achievement, so I paused the game and waited until just after midnight, to add another day to my streak!

Great minds think alike. My budddy I mentioned and I do the same thing. Streaks are awesome, but I had to let my big one go because of a vacation to Mexico. Real life intervenes far too often to try for a massive one. Still, as you said, it's a great way to keep your score continuously going higher and higher.
Oh yeah, I just requested to be added to the leader board. I had hoped there was a CAG leader board on TA somewhere.

I'm closing in on the 100k mark and I'm trying to decide what achievement I would like to use to hit it. I debated on it being the 500 bounties in Diabo 3 UEE which would also give me 100% on the game. It will most likely be whatever random game I'm poking my way through of my 100+ XB1 backlog.

 

Current backlog - https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

I'm not sure how to direct link to my gamertag or if MS even allows that still.

Make sure to take a picture to commemorate it. :)

I hit it during one of the episodes of The Walking Dead Season Two.

51,807 at the moment. I have no goals. I would try to get as many as I could in the 360 days but since XB1 came out I have very little interest in going out of my way for an achievement.

 

238 out of 343 on the CAG TA leaderboard. Woo hoo. :D/

For a while my main goal was to get to 100,000 asap. I had this idea in my mind that 100k was the point where you've "arrived," like that's when people can start taking you seriously as an achievement hunter. :lol: Now that I'm on the other side of 100k, I still want to raise my score but I'm also interested in my completion percentage. I'm usually hovering around 50%, lately on the low side. I'm never going to be one of those people in the 90s or something, but I'm always kicking around the idea of revisiting old games to try and fortify that a little more, maybe get up around 60%.

My completion % is around 20 if I remember right. I have a bad habit of dropping games to play other ones and not returning. It's like being in the middle of a sentence hey look its a butterfly whats for dinner?

Dat 97.69% completion rate. :lol: In a way I think it's kind of a badge of honor not to have this game on your card. ;)

You should be able to see my gamerscore in my signature (also the picture is linked with my TA profile, so you will see more info if you click on it =P)

 

I'm at 84.497 GS right now, and also made blogpost of my backlog (or rather my to do list) and keep on updating the progress lol

 

As you see my number is also not ending in 5 or 0 Luxor 2 and The Orange Box are responsible for that...

I've got one too. Reach did it to me. >.>

 

Joined the TA group. I used to be a much bigger achievement hunter, but I've scaled back a bit in recent years. I still like going after as many as I can, but I try to no longer grind out those lengthy and/or MP ones, if possible.

Nice to see one of these up. Maybe I'll post more instead of lurking half the time. :P

 

Sitting at 268,945 as of this moment with a goal of hitting 325,000 by the end of the year. Just over 200 points a day (which granted I don't always hit), but ahead of schedule by about 3%. Not sure what I'll use to hit 300k with as of yet. Used "Monument To All Your Sins" in Halo Reach for 100k and the 1k of Binary Domain for 200k. Felt good to knock that out, with the multiplayer taking a solid 100 hours or so.

 

Not working on any specific game at the moment. Been playing Rayman Legends again since it became free on the X1 last month. Hoping to have the 1k by the end of the month. 1k'd the 360 version in three months acquiring no diamond cups, but having 25 in the X1 version has sped me up quite nicely.

 

Anyone here sign up to do the GTASC for this year? Signed up technically, but just playing normally seeing how long I'll last. Not going to go out of my way like I did last year.

Great thread, I'll be a frequent here.

I'm proud of my Mass Effect 100%s along with the three main Fable games. Alan Wake was a fun 100% too.

I'll add this to help, Disney Infinity 1 has a couple of easy odd # achievements that are good for balancing out your gamerscore, for those interested.

I thought it would be cool to have a thread just for gamerscore and achievement hunting discussion. What's your score? What's your goal? What are your proudest accomplishments, and what games are you working on currently?

Score: 221,342 (thanks for the 2 Threes!)

Goal: Working on % now, hoping to break the 50% mark after I nuked my completion by diving 58 games in TA's bean dive.

Proudest Accomplishment? Probably getting the 200gs on Super Monkey Ball WP and being #12 of currently 48 people who have completed it.

Right? One of my favorite moments as well. I remember holding my breath after the final boss died, waiting for that 75G to pop... Definitely one of the hardest games I've beaten (without taking advantage of any glitches or tricks).

 

I think my #1 accomplishment though, is 1750/1750 in Lips... Don't laugh, it's a 1.34% completion rate, and that completion represents a LOT of singing. 8-)

Yes sir. I'm in. The team I had last year wanted to join up just to see how our casual playing will stack up. Still in so far, although last week was close for us. The casual playing turns into "omgholyshitwho'sgotthepoints" on Saturday evening though. Still, it's incentive to score and slowly burrow through backlogs...until the next good sale.
I'm too A.D.D. to follow through any sort of scoring plan for completing games. I guess a two year old and wife don't help the ole gaming habits much :)

Man, Super Monkey Ball on WP7 is soul-crushing.

I'm closing in on 250k.  No real goal in terms of amount of gamerscore although I've been working on getting my completion percentage up to 90%.  Sitting at 88% right now.

Paging Glockglock... I think he may be the only one who can approve new applications to the leaderboard. Maybe try sending him a PM.
