    lol and STEAM achievements are even worse than gamerscore or the ps3 trophies as no one can even see them and compare or you dont get bonuses from them so it is a complete waste of time.

    umm yes you can see what achievements your friends got, just go the the community tab and it tells you the latest achievements they earned, and tf2 rewards class based achievements with weapons, and steam is always doing things like the winter sale last year, if you got certain achievements you can earn a free game at random or a coupon off a game, or their treasure hunt they did before that entered you into a raffle for each objective achievement you completed, to win your top 10 games on your wishlist. So steam achievements really aren't that bad and they do serve a purpose.

    they serve as much of a purpose as atheism... annoying and pointless because nobody cares

    Fuck God and Jesus in the ass.

    in games, smashing everything in the environment is as natural as running to the right.

    oh, and hating on achievements/trophies is just flawed reasoning. regardless of how one may subjectively view their value, the fact is that they mean something to some people. such is the essence of 'value'. you could tell me that they're pointless, and, using your own logic, i could say the same thing about gaming in general. (should be noted that i appreciate cheevos/trophies, but won't waste my time with the shitty ones.)
  • AuthorityFigure - December 3, 2012 3:58 a.m.

    Well it depends on how much you value people's values - and as you say, it's subjective.
  • avantguardian - December 3, 2012 12:23 p.m.

    i tend to value people's values as i would my own. it's a good habit:)
  • xx_CaPTiiN_SpAiiN_zz - December 3, 2012 9:21 a.m.

    no because you would have to justify that assertion with logic as to why gaming is pointless... i mean fair enough about enjoying them subjectively but we could use subjectivity to justify anything even murder which isnt very useful so and we should base how much value gaming and achievemenets have on the same criteria and rationality. for eg we know that people like to play games for a variety of different reasons and achievements are not very consistent with that reasoning.
  • avantguardian - December 3, 2012 12:19 p.m.

    sorry dude, but you're not even in the same ballpark comparing the subjectivity of games to murder. murder breaks the number one rule: it violates the rights of another, and removes one's freedom to think/act for themselves. so no, you can't use subjectivity to justify anything, and frankly, it's kind of fucked up that you'd think so. it's not my place to judge one that has committed murder, but i can tell you that i think it's WRONG. and not even remotely comparable. i can easily argue that games are as much (if not more of) a waste of time than achievements. anyone can. it's an opinion. your ideas of achievements and their value is irrelevant, unless, of course, you can tell me exactly why everyone likes them. which you can't. so...
  • xx_CaPTiiN_SpAiiN_zz - December 3, 2012 3:46 p.m.

    more of a waste of time than achievements... sorry but i dont think you can argue that at all and all youve done is introduce a double standard for subjectivity... people who have burglars break in sometimes think about thsi and many say that they would not kill the burglar and others say that they would and rememeber how many people follow the ten commandments etc... if you cant understand that subjectivity is all encompassing then i suggest you look it up
  • avantguardian - December 3, 2012 11:11 p.m.

    again, sorry, but your post is just all sorts of wrong, and you completely contradict yourself with your first and last statements. but i think we're getting hung up on semantics, here. so, without getting overly metaphysical, i'll just explain what i mean. i DO NOT care if you choose to spend your time playing games, or knitting a sweater, or reading a book, or fapping to the interwebs, or chasing platinum trophies. because i can't tell YOU what is valuable, or how to spend your time/energy. i DO care if someone is using their right/ability to do what they want to infringe on the right of another to do the same. things like rape, slavery, murder. different discussions involving moral stances. trying to compare these with (or make a moral statement about )achievements is beyond absurd. is this so hard to understand?
  • xx_CaPTiiN_SpAiiN_zz - December 4, 2012 2:46 a.m.

    i accept your apology and maybe i am not getting what i want to say across properly especially if you stay on the subject of comparing murder... i was talking about an aspect of it not the deed. maybe it is the language barrier so i am sorry for that as well
  • avantguardian - December 4, 2012 4:51 a.m.

    it's all good...such is the internet:)

    Playing music games does not make you an actual musician, trust me My brother plays two songs in singstar, gets top score for both of them and he thinks Ed Sheeran and can sing songs well
  • avantguardian - December 2, 2012 11:25 p.m.

    i love this about music games, shit cracks me up. i would still encourage aspiring drummers to pick up rock band if they have trouble finding practice space (it can be quite the bitch-_-). i've given lessons using it. it won't make you 'good', but it will let you practice/work on your rudiments at odd hours:)

    That's very true I hoard stuff I find in caves and such to which I either sell or put up on display. Besides the weight can really make you unable to get away from enemies.

    Conserving our nuclear option. So true!
  • FierceVoltage - December 2, 2012 8:29 p.m.

    The water one makes me think of Assassin's Creed, and the nuclear one of saving the masterball for legendary pokemon, and the frustration one definitely rings true with portal, when me and my cousin played portal 2, we would get so fed up with a level we'd go get a drink or one of us would go to the bathroom then as soon as we came back we would solve the puzzle.

    That Mario Kart slide defines my Mario Kart career almost to a T. In every Pokemon game, I always check EVERY single trash can, since I know some trash cans actually do have valuable items. That being said the overwhelming majority are as the game says, "empty." Also, I blame Lt. Surge's gym puzzle for putting the switches in trash cans, as the start of this trend.
  • Smash_Bro - December 2, 2012 9:32 p.m.

    I'm totally with you on checking the trash cans! But personally, I blame Ruby and Sapphire's S.S. Tidal. I found some nice items in those bins... And now it's paying off, since B2W2 actually has decent items in the trash.

    Well with FFX the real final boss was *SPOILERS* Jecht once you beat him you basically beat the game.
