Openfeint is getting much better I like it now

Custom leaderboards can be good but more often they are not.

So a vote for openfeint

Isn't OF lagging a bit too much?

And if custom leader boards, which one is the perfect one so far?

Openfeint. I'm positive the lag will be addressed in due time.

It seems to be the most dedicated as far as updates adding additional content and fixing bugs. As Openfeint gets better, there are more games being added. Sad because I like(d) Plus+ a lot more but it seems they are keeping that gaming/social app as is. That kinda hurts but it still looks very polished.

With Openfeint:
- You can talk directly with friends
- keep comparison via leaderboards/achievements that you can view on they're lists.
- People can see what your playing and it may intrigue them to purchase your game.
- people can favorite your game and leave a post as of to why.
- People can directly make suggestions from gamers to the dev from Openfeint
- Personal forum/discussion from Openfeint
- People can fanclub your game from openfeint.
- You have Facebook and Twitter achievement integrated to be published.
- Its a daily growing gaming community that is getting better by each updated version.
- So much more...

Try out the OpenFeint app (if you haven't), go through everything you possibly can and you'll see what i mean.

Feel free to friend me too.

OpenFeint....if you add achievements with the integration.

Otherwise there's not much point to doing it

This gamer says Yes to OpenFeint. Except for the annoying scrolling text and sometimes adds (and occasional slowdown, I really haven't seen much personally) it's great.

Though, as long as it's not Scoreloop, I'm not overly concerned which online system you use. Agon would be my 2nd choice. (I still liked Agon better when it was lean and mean and just scores, now it's getting to be more and more like OF, which is fine, but I don't like it's login setup as much.)

When OpenFeint puts up the "Welcome ******" banner, Empty City 3D slows way down, but only for a second or two.
