If Stubbs goes OGBC I’ll be grabbing that shit digitally with the quickness, achievements or not.

It would be nice to have achievements added to the games but not necessary. I've played too many games growing up before achievements were even a thing to truly care about them. Yes hearing that little ping when I've done something not a ton of other people have is nice...... but it isn't necessary. 

 

There are too many great games out today that don't have achievements in them. To justify confining your purchases over an arbitrary number doesn't make sense to me in the slightest. Just my opinion. To each their own  O:)

I'd just buy an Xbox and buy the games cheap if I really wanted to play original Xbox games without achievements. I'll also only be playing them if they have achievements even though I care less about achievements now than I did in the past.

I was busy playing PC games so I never owned an original Xbox, only a 360. Only played Halo at friends houses and then on PC, so for me these original Xbox games have no nostalgia. Achievements or no achievements I prob won't spend any real money on them. I totally understand nostalgia though, as someone who bought the NES Classic and SNES Classic, I completely understand it.

I'm 99.9% sure that there won't be any achievements in OG Xbox games when they go BC.  That would take a lot of engineering to shoehorn and it may not work at all for some games.  But then again, they sure are taking their time getting the games ready..........

 

Also, this is timely --> https://www.change.o...ng/fbog/3201279

Can anyone name a :360: or :xb1: game they would play even if it didn't have achievements?  I apparently do that already with Destiny...

I play Overwatch all the time or Call of Duty and Halo multiplayer and don't pop any achievements, so I would definitely play without. Same with sports games like Madden.

I think where Achievements are fun for me is in story based games where you finish the game quickly but then want to spend more time in that world so you look at the achievements list and see what you can do. I know I've done that with Halo single players and Borderlands 2, i loved playing that so it was fun to clean up a lot of those achievements.

In the old days I remember like Super Mario World you beat Bowser but then went back and unlocked Star World and everything else. It felt like the achievement was less of Bowser but more of unlocking every secret exit in every level.

Lost Odyssey, and a handful of other RPGs.  I will usually do more in RPGs to get the achievements, but I'd still play them for sure.  I mean, I refuse to get the "run 50 times" in Blue Dragon because I rarely, if ever, run in RPGs.  Admittedly, I stopped playing Infinite Undiscovery because of achievements.  I didn't want that one for 1G lol.

I might've gotten Seriously 3.0 in Gears 3 already if all the time I spent playing Beast had instead been focused on earning medals.  Man, I love that mode.  Cuphead.  Plenty of others. 

 

The question would probably get much different responses if posed as - would you have continued playing some games for as long as you did if it weren't for achievements?  Going for a 100% completion kept me going with some games, like Brumak grinding in Gears 2, or thinking I'll get back to some others, someday (e.g., Borderlands 2).  Thoroughly enjoyed Forza Horizon 3, have over 200 hours into it.  But I'd have probably moved on if not for the remaining achievements and weekly challenges.

 

In the old days I remember like Super Mario World you beat Bowser but then went back and unlocked Star World and everything else. It felt like the achievement was less of Bowser but more of unlocking every secret exit in every level.

One time I decided to play Super Mario World by clearing every exit except the switch palaces.  Some exits required some tricky flying or getting a blue Yoshi through a level, but I did it.  Then I checked another save on the cart - turns out I forgot I had already done it a number of years prior.

Cancelled my Scorpio edition order and Battlefront 2. I had some financial sense talked into me, that it's not the time and I need to be responsible right now. I do regret getting a PS4 Pro earlier this year, the improvements are negligible compared to the X and I'd rather still have the normal.

Amen. I've gone off on how achievements have ruined gaming but will refrain from all that this time lol. Good to see other gamers still playing games for the right reason.

To this day the only games I got 1000 GS on were NBA 2K6 and College Hoops 2K6 and that's only because they were glitched and popped for everyone I think. And if all goes as planned I will die with zero platinum trophies as well lol.

Fellow Pinball FX 3 fans: I finished my first “playthrough” and posted a score for every table in Classic mode. Most I only played once or twice but use it as a baseline and when you beat it I’ll obsess over it until I beat yours!

Actively avoiding them seems just as silly.

Just finished Wheelman on Netflix. Pretty good flick. Shot almost entirely in and around a car.

Of course, I watched it on my X1. :)

I play games and don't worry much about achievements. I also rarely go back to games. If I try it and don't like it, I'm probably done. I just sold my copy of Destiny 2 and listed my Shadow of War copy on ebay. With a kid and limited (except for the 50 hours I dropped in SoW in a week, apparently) gaming time, I just don't like to go back to things. I've slowed down my digital buying due to this very thing.

I don't actively avoid them. If simply beating a game got you all the achievements then the world would be a better place. But in today's gaming world playing a game the way you want to guarantees that you won't and I'm okay with that.

I have 39 DAYS and 5 hours (so... 941 hours) in Black Ops 3... 140/1950 Achievement points and never finished the second level of the SP campaign. So - it wouldn't have mattered if I got 0 cheevos, I would have played the shit out of the MP.

This free Hand of the Gods game seems cool, but is multiplayer only. Don't see myself playing it when its out of beta if thats the case.

Yeah I enjoy achievements but they're not necessary. Loved the Mass Effect trilogies and getting 100% on those are perfectly doable and was a quite enjoyable experience.
