Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes achievements leaked

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes' Achievement list has been leaked, and it's a curious one. Provided nothing gets shifted, the full 1,000 points are broken down between a mere 15 Achievements. Curious still, with the excepti...

Confessions of an Achievement whore: Demands for next-gen photo
Confessions of an Achievement whore: Demands for next-gen
by Mr Andy Dixon

Earlier this month, Brett shared his love of Xbox Achievements with us, and cautioned that Microsoft's rumored next-generation revamp to the system may end up ruining part of what makes them great. For Brett, the idea of Achievements soon spanning multiple titles or being added willy-nilly, post-launch by nefarious developers is a frightening prospect that any Achievement-loving completionist should fear. I couldn't have agreed more.

So when Microsoft confirmed the rumor during their Xbox One reveal earlier this week, I was disappointed. And the more I started thinking about it, the more I started to realize that, dammit, we've been at this for long enough now to rightfully expect certain things from developers where Achievements are concerned. After seven years, shouldn't we be past the growing pains? Shouldn't they know what we want by now?

So with that in mind, I present to you my Achievement Whore's Manifesto. Think of this as a list of demands for what we should expect to see (and expect to not see) in a game's Achievement list in 2013 and beyond. I know not all of us agree on Achievements' worthiness or impact on gaming, but I think we can all get behind the idea that a shit Achievement is a waste of everyone's time, and if they're here to stay, we might as well get the most enjoyment we can out of them.

You can still earn Trophies on pre-owned PS Vita games
