World record Gamerscore holder surpasses 600,000 Achievement points

The Xbox 360 Gamerscore world record holder recently reached 600,000 points. His name is Raymond Cox, he goes by Stallion83 on Xbox Live, and he's dead set on vaulting his score over seven digits before he retires any of several Xbox 360s he owns — we even went to him for some score-earning tips. Cox has had the highest Gamerscore for five years now, and has appeared in both the Guinness Book of World Records 2010 and the 2011 Gamer's Edition. He passed 500,000 last October and blogs about his quest to reach a million points on the site

Above: The moment

The Achievement that secured his place in history was “Homewrecker” in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, which is awarded for destroying 100 Anthills/Spider Nests. Since then, Cox has a new goal: reaching 666,666 points by Halloween of this year. Why did he pick this as his next milestone? “I don't know, just seems like something to shoot for” is Cox's sage answer.

To reach the world's highest Gamerscore, Cox has played nearly 900 games and earned an average of 24 Gamer Points per achievement. His first achievement was“Cluster Buster” which is pretty much a five point giveaway for Hexic HD. He earned it on Xbox 360 launch day in North America, Nov 22, 2005, but says he wasn't really hooked on achievements until he completed Call of Duty 2 in early 2006. From there it was five short years until he reached this level:

Total Gamerscore: 600,000
Total Achievements: 24,930
Total Games Played: 878
Total Completed Games: 510

Despite the attention he's getting for his “achievement” and landing himself a sponsorship from XtendPlay, Cox keeps it all in perspective, saying that “At the end of the day, I'm 100,000 closer to my ultimate goal, 1,000,000 Gamerscore.” He did, however, make a short video to commemorate the occasion. Please don't laugh. Cox claims the clip “wasn't supposed to be silly,” and it was earnestly inspired by the scene in Rocky 2 where Adrian tells Rocky all he wants is for him to win.

    Gamerscores are pointless. I play a game for fun, I do the sidequests, and then I beat it. After that I don't spend 2 hours killing x amount of x bad guys just to get an imaginary number.

    I'm a virgin and my gamerscore is only 25,000. Thanks for shitting on my day Killer.

    @idlemindkiller -- word. The internet could use a sarcasm font
  • ObliqueZombie - August 10, 2011 6:57 a.m.

    Wow. That's, uhh... damn. I was proud of my 40k+ achievements, but Jesus.... Congrats, man! Keep up the hard work. I'm sure half the games you've played have been sheer trudges through cement.

    @idlemindkiller and Redeater Guys, guys! Please don't turn a GR comments section into /v/

    @redeater Don't feed the troll.
  • vadorsoul - August 9, 2011 10:41 p.m.

    …I will beat him.
  • Redeater - August 9, 2011 10:26 p.m.

    @gardenbeast I suggest finding ways to kill time at your job. You can air whittle, hitch up your pants or when all that fails poke fun at the worker way past his expiry date. I find that they usually go by the name AL.

    At least he has goals in life. My only goal is to not succumb to the depression a shitty job brings, and hang myself with an extension cord. Goin' on day 3 since my last attempt....

    Wow that is the true definition of an achievement whore good job Stallion good job! Long live gaming, well except crappy games like harry potter seriously he whored harry potter ahhh what a disappointment.

    @Wampastompa---see above. The point was it was the obvious joke. Not a "I'm so clever" joke. I guess its hard to hear sarcasm and such through text. Not a big deal, Like I said internet nonsense never bothers me. Ok, I had to chime in twice.
  • idlemindkiller - August 9, 2011 9:45 p.m.

    Let me chime back in just one more time on this story and then I am done. @ Redeater its all good, I dont get upset over internet stuff. Also, the joke was made not to be funny but because its the most obvious joke used for this topic. I guess it was trolling kinda.
  • wampastompa - August 9, 2011 9:38 p.m.

    @idlemindkiller You're on a video game website, so you're probably a gamer, but obviously you're WAY cooler than stallion83. Give me a break, jokes about someone still being a virgin stopped being clever in middle school, but I'm sure you're really cool :-/
  • LovingPanama - August 9, 2011 9:36 p.m.

    Jejeje, Cox, Stallion. The jokes write themselves!
  • EBAX1 - August 9, 2011 9:35 p.m.

    Wow if all you did was achievement whore games wouldn't even be fun anymore. Especially since that means he had to play games the the cartel and deathly hallows
  • Redeater - August 9, 2011 9:33 p.m.

    @idlemindkiller Look I don't want to get into a thing with you and I'm sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way. I may have not understood that you were kidding but after reading nothing but virgin comments on IGN I found it a bit unoriginal.
  • Tantalop - August 9, 2011 9:31 p.m.

    @redeater Seriously, you should shut up.Your comebacks are pathetic. And Honestly yeah this kid is a loser. lol get over it.
  • Redeater - August 9, 2011 9:30 p.m.

    @idlemindkiller I'm 32, I'm not mad and I think it's a waste of time posting unfunny virgin comments. Saying things like "soooooo" and calling me gay is childish and what I would expect of someone calling another person a virgin just because he is a very serious gamer.
