Hey guys, I wanted to show you all this really cool site I'm part of. True Achievements
Have you noticed that some Achievement scores are a bit... unfair
the 5 points for pressing the Start button in The Simpsons Game are worth exactly the same as the 5 points for completing 10 side missions in Just Cause
Or how about this?
the 1000 points for achieving a hit counter of 50 in Avatar: The Burning Earth (which takes about 5 minutes) are worth the same as the 1000 points for completing the whole of Guitar Hero III , including The Inhuman Achievement
Over at TrueAchievement's my Gamerscore of 16,948 is ACTUALLY 23,037. How did it jump up 6,089 points? With alot of maths. What they do is this.
"We've decided that an achievement's difficulty can be accurately approximated by using a formula based on how many people have that achievement compared to how many people own the game. We also understand the phrase 'accurately approximated' is a contradiction in terms but are refusing to remove it on the grounds that it sounds impressive.
From there we multiply the original points given to the achievement by our difficulty score and end up with the TrueAchievement score for that, for want of a better word, achievement."
So check it out guy's I'm sure every one here at DTOID will love it, the site hit 20,000 members. Be sure to add me as a friend too as Bleakdestiny
