It seems to satisfy the competitive NERD in me. No one knows, I just like it. Not that I do very well on leaderboards....

I agree. It does matter

Also, you can compete with your friends !!!

High scores have always been a big part of arcade type games that are based on high scores and now it's just being done so well with openfeint ........otherwise you are just competing with yourself which does not seem that fun or motivating and it won't keep me playing for nearly as long.

I have no friends to compete with because all my friends who have iPods/iPhones are too cheap to buy anything good

All the time. When BoF went on sale for a DOLLAR they still wouldn't buy it. I was like are you [bleep] kidding me?! I feel like I'm not getting the full use out of my Touch because I don't have anyone to play BT/Local WiFi games with.
