I spent a time obsessing over gamerscore and trying to get 1000 total points on as many games as I could.  This led me to belong to several forums and get involved in a very odd community.

There was a guy well ahead of stallion back when I was involved, I assume he finally got caught for cheating as we all assumed he was doing.  A few years ago, 1M points wasn't even possible, so this guy has likely earned the vast majority of achievement points available on all xbox games, everywhere.

When people start playing games designed for 4-year-olds just to get some meaningless points, it's a little too far.  I never stooped that low, thankfully.

I don't know. It's a hobby. Is it really any worse than carpentry, ship in a bottle building, learning mandarin, or any other hobby?

If it wasn't disrupting his life, like he wasn't frothing at the mouth to get home every day to get more points and it paying attention to family etc...

I know multiple people that do this for trophies. One guy even played Hannah Montana a few times to get the trophies for other people.

The lowest you could say I stoop is the LEGO games. But those are good games.

Heh I still do some achievement hunting for games I play (never bought/rented/played one just for points). It's fun to get some challenges to try and complete. Finished Stick of Truth completely last night.

I remember there was some game like Dragonball or Avatar (airbender, not Spielberg) where you could get 1000 points in the first 5 minutes of playing it.

I just don't understand how he reached that. The time alone would be insane. You're talking about a minimum of 1,000 games played (excluding DLC). Most XB Arcade games are 200-400 points.

And I don't want to think about cost.

Gaming buddy of mine knows a guy who owns his own EB Games.  Dude takes games home with him(even kids games) then plays the shiat out of them to get the platinums then puts them back on the shelf.  He's level 72 or something on PSN and most of it comes from "My Little Pony" games and such.  I've done trophy hunting for games that I really enjoyed but most of them have been earned just by playing normally.  It's a fun addition but holy shiat do some people take it far.

Given the amount of time I invested, and the fact that I "only" have 50K points, I'd say this guy absolutely was disrupting his life.  It's just not possible any other way.

That said, you're right, it's quite fun to chase 1K points on a game you like.  It's a perfectly acceptable hobby when done in moderation.

Well, it's not equitable though, is it? Your goal is 'have fun and play game' then 'trophy hunt'. His goal was entirely 'build points'.

He could just focus on scrounging up quick/easy point builders and farming points in other ways. If he doesn't care about gameplay, and only wants points, he could be speed running everything minimalist style, pre-planning runs to intentionally hit everything in one go, etc.

But again, you're talking a minimum of 1000 games played. And pre-planning runs and all that is even more time consuming.

But you're right, it's hard to say exactly how he did it, but I would assume that this went past the point of a hobby.

He very well could've manipulated his save files for games to get easier achievements. There were some stories back in 2011 about him being banned for a week from XBL for violations. Funny enough, if you type his gamertag into google, the first two autocomplete results are 'Stallion83 banned' and 'Stallion83 cheater'

Compared my games to his, he played 1580 games and completed 77% of them which is impressive. His Arcade games look to be the lowest level of completion.  A lot of sports games and kids games, which makes sense, but there are plenty of games on there I'm amazed he farmed achievement points for.  Like Turbo Stunt Squad, I played that to review and it was awful and felt near broken at times.  Collecting everything must've taking a while.  Raven Squad, Damnation, Wall-E, Baja 1000, Bomberman Act Zero, Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm, etc are games that I'm amazed he played more than 20 minutes of much less completed.  Some like Terminator Salvation and EDF 2017 require you to play through it on each difficulty level to get all of the achievements, so he had to play through Terminator 4 times to complete it.  There are multiple versions of the same game in places, like Wall-E Korea.  Even if he had help getting the multiplayer achievements some of the RPG games on there must've taken an insane amount of time.

I mean I get that it's his hobby and think that it's great he's proven he's the best at it, but at what point does it go from a fun hobby to an unhealthy obsession?  Because he easily spent at the very least 20 hours per game*, likely longer than that just to coordinate people to help get online achievements and reciprocate, not to mention the games which require multiple playthroughs or have absurd achievements like Gears of War's Seriously.  To do that he'd have to spend about 12 hours a day since the Xbox 360 came out to accomplish.  That can't be healthy.

*-assuming he did this all by himself and didn't have others playing on his account.

Carpentry, scale model building, and playing the mandarin are all skills used to create things that please others and can be used to earn money and improve your life. So yes, having a high Xbox Live gamer score is a bit worse than those hobbies. You create nothing but a Badge of Time Wasted.

I actually do the opposite. I try to beat as many games as possible while avoiding the achievements as much as possible. Low score wins in my book.

Remember when "achievements" were something cool you just did in a videogame and told your friends about the next day at school, and then they tried to duplicate the action or result?

The first I agree, the second one, "Kill 25 enemies with oly a specific attack" type ones? Nothing wrong with that at all. Like 98% of all other achivements, it's the developers way of getting you to play their game in the way they meant you to play it. You don;t HAVE to do it, they are simply trying to get you to add a certain weapon or move into your repertoire.

see i actually like turning off all those messages for achievements/trophies... i never check them anyways, how i got them or whatnot

remember back in the day when you played games and you set your own goals based around how you wanted to play the game? yeah, i still do that, it makes games more fun especially if you're not willing to finish games or be a completionist you can be a completionist in your own - more satisfying - way

I don't think that's always true. I played The Walking Dead Season One game to platinum (easiest platinum ever) but didn't lose it when they released that 400 days dlc (which I didn't play.) So I'm now under 100% but it doesn't matter.

Yes and no.  It can be an interesting challenge to undertake however there are times when it's hair pulling in it's frustration.  Uncharteds "Iron Fist Expert" is a great example, where you have to kill an enemy with one punch after shooting X amount of times.  The problem is different enemies take different amounts of shots to get the to that point AND in nearly all the big firefight areas you have a partner who'shiatting them as well.  Bioshock Infinites challenges for X kills with different weapons was much more forgiving because there was always an abundance of guns and ammo so after the midway point you had access to pretty much all of them in just about every area.

Or waste their entire life playing a stupid game centered around hitting balls with sticks. Or more accurately, watching other men hit balls with sticks while tracking their ability to hit balls with sticks, and to throw balls for other men to hit with sticks, etc.

Hobbies are farking stupid time wasters if you abstract them. What is yours? Posting on fark? Playing music? Watching TV? Reading? Running? Watching sports? Unless you're literally building homes for the starving in africa, you too have a 'pointless waste of your life' hobby which can be easily trivialized.

kroonermanblack: AgentPothead: Some people will literally do anything to feel like their life has purpose. Like waste their entire life wracking up imaginary score points.

Or waste their entire life playing a stupid game centered around hitting balls with sticks. Or more accurately, watching other men hit balls with sticks while tracking their ability to hit balls with sticks, and to throw balls for other men to hit with sticks, etc.

Hobbies are farking stupid time wasters if you abstract them. What is yours? Posting on fark? Playing music? Watching TV? Reading? Running? Watching sports? Unless you're literally building homes for the starving in africa, you too have a 'pointless waste of your life' hobby which can be easily trivialized.


So does just living in Texas make you stupider or what the fark gives?
