Was just thinking the other day about the different ways of going about 'gamerscoring'.

I tend to get gamerscore as for me I think it makes games more worthwhile and adds to their play time. But after starting out racing to get a higher gamerscore then my mates and all of us saying we would have to get at least 50% of the gamerscore from each game.

So I thought I would create a poll and a thread about how you go about gamerscore.

Ive tried to section areas for it anyway:

Completionists - Gamers who game and game until they get the max.

Gamerscore whores - Gamers who play games they wouldnt usually play just to get as much gamerscore as they can. They dont care too much about getting all the gamerscore, just as much as possible.
General Gamers - You game and play games that you want to and gamerscore comes as it does.
Users - Gamers who play games that they want to but use achievements to get more play time from games.
Percentage Gamers - Gamers that just want to keep their gamerscore completion percentage above a certain number.
Randoms - Gamers who tend to try and get a certain amount of gamerscore on every game at the least.

That probably covers most things anyway. So yeah Im probably a randomer as I try to get 500+/1000 on every game and its a habbit I cant get out of and it means I play games I dont want too sometimes just to get that 500+ marker lol.

But yeah, what type of gamerscorer are you?

Multiple choice is enabled as some people may be a bit of more then one type of gamerscorer.

Definatley a user but i may have a bit of whore in me.( I didnt say that to be dirty honest)

06-03-2009, 11:57 AM
I must say that I used to be a whore (as evident in my playing of Kong, 2K6 and Madden 06 in 2008) but now I'm just a completionist, user and percentage.

06-03-2009, 12:05 PM
Randomer for me I guess. :)

06-03-2009, 12:11 PM
i like to whore myself off to my xbox until i feel like a dirty slut

06-03-2009, 12:18 PM
it's tie between completionist, user and percentage

I chose Random but Im a bit of all really...wait i'll never be a Whore lol.

I like to get the most achieve as possible. Example i went through Xmen Wolverine game again just to get the last15 odd dog tags as it was there and it was annoying that i hadnt them all lol

06-03-2009, 12:33 PM
I'd say GS-whore for sure, but if you were to ask me this the same time last year my answer would have been user because until the start of november last year my GS was only around 8k but then i got into GS score so much that now i just want more & more GS lol.

06-03-2009, 12:34 PM
Completionist. I want my 1000, no matter how long it takes.

06-03-2009, 12:36 PM
user...but i have whored a few games.

06-03-2009, 12:38 PM
I think i'm a user/whore lol.I personally find this the most fun, if less fulfilling way of getting gamer score :)

06-03-2009, 12:42 PM
I'm a scorewhore, but I don't ever buy games for score...rent & borrow :)

06-03-2009, 12:54 PM
I'm mostly just a general gamer. Might switch to a whore soon though :)

06-03-2009, 01:04 PM
I voted for completionist, whore, and general gamer. I like to max out games, occasionally play whorish games and like to play games for fun, so it's a mix.

06-03-2009, 01:06 PM
Gamerscore whore :p
I enjoy going for points but not maximum, most are online achievements or ones I cant do.

06-03-2009, 02:22 PM
I'd say whore. I'd play games I usually wouldn't, but not games that just suck. I still have to like the game to play it.

06-03-2009, 02:26 PM
I'm a General Gamer. I play games and the achievements come as they go.

I am the current one vote for other at the moment.

REASON: I couldn't decide whether i was a "User" or a "Randomer" -- Definitely a little of both of those.

so yea, other ;)

06-03-2009, 02:28 PM
Randomer o,o

06-03-2009, 02:57 PM
Randomer. And that's just because I don't have the patience to be a gamerscore whore. :D

06-03-2009, 03:02 PM
General Gamer. I just play casually ang get achievements along the way, i dont find it at all fun to play games for GS!

06-03-2009, 03:20 PM
Completionists - Gamers who game and game until they get the max.

Gamerscore whores - Gamers who play games they wouldnt usually play just to get as much gamerscore as they can. They dont care too much about getting all the gamerscore, just as much as possible.
General Gamers - You game and play games that you want to and gamerscore comes as it does.

Users - Gamers who play games that they want to but use achievements to get more play time from games.

Gamerscore Whore here..:D

I'm a "general gamer" then.

I only buy games i like. I'm not all that into the achievement system, though it is nice to be able to prove you have completed a game on its hardest difficulty. Some games have achievements that do add a little bit to the gameplay too, though. Like Quantum of Solace, with it's various "don't break stealth" or "don't kill any enemies" achievements.

Gamerscore whore :p

06-03-2009, 04:01 PM
i think general gamer n user describes me quite well

06-03-2009, 04:03 PM
I'm a whore, but I won't buy a game for points. All the games on my list are premium games, except some easy 200 arcade ones.. but those are 7.99$ compared to other prices.

I'm also alllll about my completion %.. so I try to get the most achievements out of all my games. GOD DAMN YOU COD2. 8%... BAH!

06-03-2009, 04:17 PM
Im a whore. But I haven't played avatar yet. I also don't play sports games except a couple that I played. I also won't buy games just for score I rent them. But I do care how much score I get out of the game. I try to get as much as I can.

Whore lol. I knew the the transformation was complete when I went to buy Fuel yesterday. I though to myself "man what if Fuel sucks, I'm spending 60 bucks on it!" "Oh well at least I'll get some achievements out of it." lol

06-03-2009, 04:56 PM
I guess I'm a percentage gamer, I'm now trying to keep my completion % above 60%. I'm going to try for 70% before I buy any new games.

06-03-2009, 05:10 PM
Completionist no doubt. The only whore games I've got on there (Avatar and a 2k sports game) are games that I borrowed from a friend, who was actually renting them (for gamerscore of course)

06-03-2009, 05:10 PM
I tried to be a whore for 2 weeks last year. I played Lost and TMNT and my God it was the worst experience ever! I voted Randomer, I play games I enjoy and try to get as many achievements as I can.

06-03-2009, 05:13 PM
im a completionist

06-03-2009, 06:43 PM
I consider myself a completionist, gamerscore whore, and percentage gamer. I try to get 100% in all my games but I do know my limits and now that I have gotten my percentage to about 90 I want to keep it above that. I also want to get as many points as possible.

06-03-2009, 07:06 PM
I'm a Randomer. I try to get all the single player achievements/achievements I know I can.

06-03-2009, 07:13 PM
completionist for me

06-03-2009, 07:14 PM
I'm a completionist. My statistics are in my signature but I need every achievement in every game I play. If I had a drum kit and had some helpful folks, I would have a much higher GS%. Regardless, I don't have any of that shit.

06-03-2009, 07:20 PM
General Gamer or a user not sure :p

06-03-2009, 07:22 PM
I used to care about getting 100% on games but I cant stand forcing myself to get achievements that I hate so I stopped doing that, now im just a damn Whore :D

Mr Burgerz
06-03-2009, 08:09 PM
Completionist all the way! I scorn the Avatar whores! There should be a category for those hardcore achievers - who go for the harshest achievement to show their skills/will?

06-03-2009, 08:44 PM
I'm a mix of Completionest and GS Whore.

I'd play a game I don't like for some GS, but if it's a game I really like and enjoy, I won't stop until I get 100%.

(Halo 3, CoD4 & 5, for example)

06-03-2009, 08:48 PM
Just adding to my original post its wierd, I spend time getting 500+/1000 on games making me a randomer but in a way a percentage gamer also.

Im currently changing and trying to get 500+ on around 10 different games and gave 4 new sealed games on my shelf I want to play but the gamerscore addiction has me lol.

06-03-2009, 09:27 PM
General Gamer. Play a game untill I complete it and go for achievements but I don't go for grinding achievements such as Wanted on Grand Theft Auto

06-03-2009, 09:45 PM
I'm a randomer.

06-03-2009, 10:38 PM
I tend to aim for a decent completion percentage of my games, not too bothered about my gamerscore overall nowadays.

Sitting at about 75% completion percentage atm.

06-03-2009, 10:42 PM
i'm a completionist user. Don't buy/rent easy G games, i get games i want, then enjoy completing them 100%... even if it is halo wars running the show achievement, I WILL HAVE IT! =)

06-03-2009, 10:46 PM
I'd say I'm a general gamer. i have moments were I feel like getting some Gamerscore but most of the time I just play games I enjoy. I mostly play online so when I'm not attempting to get Gamerscore I usually don't get any.

06-04-2009, 12:08 AM
I love boosting my score, but I generally play games for fun or competetion. I will put in the occasional King Kong or Avatar to grab an easy 1K.

06-04-2009, 12:41 AM
I play alot/ and I dont usualy 100% games unless I like them or Im really bored.
And if theres a chance for me to get quick easy GamerScore Im there :P

Im really inbreed lmao Ive got a little bit of Completionist in me, a little bit of scorewhore, a little bit of randomer and a little bit of Percentage lol

cheeky cheekz
06-04-2009, 01:10 AM
Hmmm, well I'm trying to be a completionist as I don't have many games so it extends gaming time a lot.:woop:

06-04-2009, 01:13 AM
Gamerscore Whore , that's the best classification for me =)

06-04-2009, 03:16 AM
Completionist all the way! I scorn the Avatar whores! There should be a category for those hardcore achievers - who go for the harshest achievement to show their skills/will?

I'm completionist, and I don't go for the easy games like Avatar or King Kong. I also start a game and won't play another until I complete it, right now I'm playing Devil May Cry 4, and am thinking of getting Ninja Gaiden II after that... I love a good challenge!

06-04-2009, 03:42 AM
I'm a combination of a completionist, user and percentage gamer.

I'll rarely play a game unless it looks interesting to me, but I try to get as many achievements in the game as I possibly can, unless there are achievements that are a real pain in the ass to get (i.e. getting on top of the leaderboards in GRAW, etc.).

Lately though I have been trying to go back and finish off some achievements in the games I played when I first got my 360.

06-04-2009, 04:36 AM
I'm kind of half-assed Completionist and Percentage gamer. I'll try to get as many REASONABLE achievements as I can in any game I play. I don't really try to go for the full 1000 and the only games I've gotten all the achievements on (Fight Night and N+) came just from playing the game. In terms of overall gamerscore, I try to keep my percent 50% or higher. If I have or play a game I don't like, I'll at least milk it for achievements.

06-04-2009, 04:44 AM
I've slowed down a bit, but I consider myself a GS whore. Don't care about completion, just try to get as many games and get a reasonable percent in them.

06-04-2009, 05:48 AM
I think that I'm a mix of Gamerscore Whore, General Gamer, and Percentage Gamer. Sadly, I occasionally won't play a game just because of the difficulty of the achievements. :(

06-04-2009, 06:03 AM
I'm a whore, I will play any games to get achievements, apart from like Avatar and the like. They are just shameful.

06-04-2009, 06:02 PM
Mostly general gamer because its about having fun :), but also a user too, gotta love the achievment unlocked notification :P

06-04-2009, 10:44 PM
I'm definetly a Percentage Gamer. I don't like having my percentage below a 95%, and am trying to get it above a 98% this summer. :)

Completionist (94.48% via MGC).


06-05-2009, 12:02 AM
I guess I have to consider myself a whore as I have played and 1K'd Avatar. Nowadays I just play, I wont go out of my way to play crap games. I wont stop chasing achievements though.

It's such an awesome feeling finishing everything in a difficult and enjoyable game.

06-05-2009, 01:24 AM
Out of that List, i'm a Ho! Although I only started getting gamerscore to shut up a cocky friend! - It worked & now I have no competition!:p
So i just play to play these days... Probably get to 100k this year just generally playing..

06-05-2009, 01:36 AM
im a combo general/user i dont really care if i get 1000pts or not sadly most of time i cant since i refuse to pay for live and every damn game seems to have online mp cheeves which pisses me off, and if there is one i know i can get ill go for it otherwise i pass

06-05-2009, 01:45 AM
Mostly percentage with some traits of a completionist. I'm not that bothered if i cant get 100% on everything but i do always try to, as long as my overall percentage is about 75-80% im happy

06-05-2009, 01:50 AM
I think im a user :)

06-05-2009, 02:17 AM
i'm a naughty, dirty completionist whore. i think that if i'm trying to 100% every game i buy (ie. finding all 100 nirnroots in oblivion, finding all 100 rubberbands in Bully, finding every pigeon in gta iv), then i need a new hobby.

06-05-2009, 03:00 AM
I fancy myself a completionist. I dont play many games, therefore, Im not an achievement whore, but I danm well try to get every achievement in the games I do play.

06-05-2009, 11:40 AM
I try to complete each game as close to 100 as I can, although I am very fard behind. However I will not play crappy games for easy points.
