Bioshock and Achievement-Induced Paralysis

Bioshock was really only the second real game I've purchased for my 360, the first being Gears of War. Most of the time I hop on for a few minutes to play some XBLA.

Soon after I purchased Bioshock I played through the first act and then quit. Why?


I'm afraid that if I leave the first act I won't be able to come back. And then I'd have to play the whole darn game through again to get those achievements. Which I'd never do, I usually don't play games through even once, let alone twice.

So, easy problem, right? Except that there's one other thing I hate ...


Yeah, I know I could go to gamefaqs and find out how to get all the achievements. But why? Why is downloading a text file off the internet an intrinsic part of pretty much every console game?

I know this one too -- because some people (lousy explorers) like finding all of this stuff on their own. That's great for you guys. But give the rest of us a chance? I'd even perform an annoying task in game for a map or something.

So, have lame achievements, FAQ-requiring or otherwise, ever made any of you quit a game?
