    I've never read a so "true story" article like this.

    I would add 'Deliberately going the wrong way to find stuff'. I always find myself thinking, 'I should go left here to continue the narrative; let's go right and look for collectibles.'

    Lol great article so many Im guilty of. I remember grinding and leveling up in FFIX that the last boss was a joke

    Hahaha, great article. But I could argue achievements ARE worth something, both physically and metaphysically. I do see what you mean, though! ;)

    I know I'm petty, but why do people say X a.m. in the morning? No shit, it's a.m. I know it's the morning. No one says x p.m. in the they? This always bugs me. /end rant/

    I totally do the quick save one. And the "Hit the Ground Running" one, especially once I've fallen into a losing streak as it gets even worse. By the time I realise I'm doing it, I'm on a 1/10 K/D and very close to rage quitting.

    I've seen people constantly centering the camera in 3rd person games - it's like a monkey hitting the feeder button...

    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.
  • AuthorityFigure - December 3, 2012 3:47 a.m.

    Hey! That's so true... How stupid.
  • xx_CaPTiiN_SpAiiN_zz - December 3, 2012 9:23 a.m.

    yeah man its crazy XD so you dont even get bragging points for them

    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.
  • xx_CaPTiiN_SpAiiN_zz - December 6, 2012 12:27 a.m.

    they serve as much of a purpose as atheism... annoying and pointless because nobody cares
  • avantguardian - December 2, 2012 11:01 p.m.

    in games, smashing everything in the environment is as natural as running to the right.
  • avantguardian - December 2, 2012 11:18 p.m.

    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:)
