Changing the way I play for achievements...for now
Grinding game after game after game I've decided to take the whatever whenever approach to gaining achievements and gamerscore. In the past and present I solely focus on a select few games until they are fully completed. Sure, I'm still going to complete most games especially the ones I enjoy. In regards to completion percentage, that will take the hit. So for the time being I'm going to see how I enjoy the new approach. I will always be going back to games and completing them when I'm ready to do so. I just hate forcing the issue when there is something I could be enjoying much more.
I'll give an example of what would happen in the past and what I'm trying to avoid now. I beat a game one time and I hate it. The game has achievements for playing it twice. I could either suffer though the game again or go onto something else. For the time being I'll be moving onto something else unless the game is very short.
A game like Resident Evil 5 I will play to completion 10 out of 10 times.. What I'm essentially doing is picking fun and gamerscore over completion. I think this way I will actually gain more over a period of time because I won't get as stagnant.
Just a test I suppose at least for a couple of months. This is no way me getting sick of achievements, just a way to keep things fresh.
So expect my gamercard to look like Swiss cheese for a bit.
