What if roadmaps included a part that told you if the game has any unlockable gamerpics. This part would tell you what you have to do to unlock them or what achievement you have to unlock to get them. Here is an example from gears of war(1):

Unlockable gamerpics:
unlock the achievement "Commando" to get:

unlock the achievement "Seriously ..." to get:
http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/O0/lC/1mdsb2JhbC9CCQRUBxwAGAFZL3RpbGUvMC8yMDAzNgAAAAAAAA D5bUkb.jpg

Then in some cases there are gamerpics that don't involve unlocking achievements. Here is an example from Pac-man (XBLA):

Unlockable gamerpics:
Download and play the game to get:
http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Re/-l/02dsb2JhbC8QCgUIBh4AF1RdL3RpbGUvMC8yMDAwZAAAAAAAAA D8yu9l.jpg

This idea would save people alot of time, example: When Gears of War 2 came out, almost everyone thought that there would be gamerpic for Seriously 2.0. Many of my friends spent hours trying to get Seriously 2.0 (just for the gamerpic), only to find there is no gamerpic for it.

Edit: another example: I can't get a straight answer when i ask anyone if there is a gamerpic for finishing Dark Sector on brutal, it's all just "maybe" and "i don't know".

That really has nothing to do with gaining the achievements themselves though, which is what the roadmaps and guides are for. There is an unlockable gamerpic thread on the forum somewhere, though I don't think the original author is updating it so a new one might be in order.

Like Pants said, the roadmaps probably aren't the best place to put these in. They are best left to their own thread. Not to say it isn't a good idea, it's just that the roadmaps are best left for helping towards getting achievements.

I do see your point, but i wouldn't have recommended it, if the unlockable gamerpic thread was still being updated (and the gamerpic scout). Though i still think that it's a hole that needs filling, through a new unlockable gamerpic thread or something like it.

I'd like this, in a forum atleast.
