Game Center Achievements are Very Important to Me

I wouldn't touch this one on iOS with a ten foot pole. No achievements on this platform so I will stick to the console version.

Since "achievements" have absolutely no impact on my enjoyment of a video game I will gladly touch this one with a ten foot pole.

I mean absolutely no unkindness toward someone who this is important to, but what is the significance of GC achievements beyond personal fulfillment? If you get a certain amount of points, do you win something?

Some people are very passionate about this, and I'm curious as to why.

Different people's brains are geared differently. I'm concrete, overanalytical and goal oriented. Since I'm # 651 last time I checked out of approximately 400 million GC accounts worldwide, it means something to me. I've never jailbroken any devices either so points are legit. To each his own.

That's great...however you might want to present that perspective in a different way? Something like "this looks like a nice port of a great game but since I really enjoy collecting GC achievements and this game doesn't have them I think I'll pass." Saying "I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole" kinda implies a pretty negative take on the game over something that really doesn't have much to do with how good the game actually may be.

Thank you for that I as well could care less. What I do love is not only is their the story mode but I really like the free roaming mode option as well!

i think that people who gives priority to stay on top in GC, over the quality and the various aspects of a game, have a big problem of self esteem, be on top of the world is the only way to get noticed... so the game becomes an optional for them.
