I really hate those. I hate to see gamer scores with "1601" or "17,408." Why can't they just stick with the 5 Rule (5, 10, 25, etc).

Who's with me?

Agreed every achievement should be a multiple of 5 with an exception of 0.

i like having an off number on the end, i personally avoid any that would fix my dilema :p

are you saying you hate when it happens to you, or you hate in general to see it on other peoples cards?

I agree... I skipped an achievement in the Orange Box because it would have messed up my score and gave me an odd number lol

I could care less what digit shows at the end of my Score TBH!, people already obsess over Completion %'s - now its the odd numbers on scores too?! :confused:

What are you guys, Autistic/OCD?!... :p:p

[edit: & OP - what 5 point Rule?]

i think that if the point values signify something, then i'm all for it. such as kill 8 people in a row... 8 G. honestly, i can't think of something like that off the top of my head, so yeah i agree that it is pretty pointless assigning weird values.

Both, but more importantly when it happens to me.

this has nothing to do w/ Autism, OCD maybe, but in no way is it anywhere near funny joking about Autism.

maybe you mean Savant?

As does XBLA Watchmen game. Yeah, it annoys me too. When I first played UMK3 it gave me some funky score, then I went back after while and fixed it. All better!

Yeah, I hate it too. Look at my gamerscore. Damn Dishwasher.

I was actually going to get a new arcade game yesterday but then I looked at the achievements. 8, 13, 21? I'd pretty much have to get the full 200 to make it even again. I hate when games do this.

I hate those oddball achievements! Mortal kombat 3, don king prizefighter, and the orange box screwed my gamerscore up.

Tbh it is pretty stupid about how people go on about odd gamerscores. Why does it have to be on 5 or 0, can't you just be a little different and not have it that way..... or Why don't you just get the other achievement to make it up than???

I only care at the moment because i'm trying to hit 100,000 on the dot. Once I hit that I probably won't care about gamerscore anymore.

BigFellaJake
06-10-2009, 09:45 AM
I actually try to aim for getting an odd achievement because it seems boring only trying to get ones that end in 5 or 0

[Waggly Bean]
06-10-2009, 09:50 AM
I'd rather have a tidy 5/0 gamerscore if I'm honest, but at the end of the day it really doesn't matter - it's not going to stop me buying/playing a game or going for certain achievements. I'll get what I'm given, so to speak! :)

I am OCD, but honestly i'm not that bothered, i have to re-load all my games now and again just so all my 1000's go to the bottom of my list, haven't had an uneven GS yet though, so i don't know what will happen, maybe my head will pop :P

The only big OCD thing for me, is all my dvd's/games have to be in ABC order >.< and i have alot of dvd's

Honestly i don't think it's that bad, i think i would rather have a number at the end instead of 0 i mean it just gives it abit more character, I do think it's silly that some of you won't buy an arcade game because of GS though :(

That's probably the reason they make the games with odd scores in the 1st place...They know it annoys people and that it will keep them playing the game to try to even their score back out...I honestly don't even really care anymore, I don't really like the odd points, but I'm not gonna let it stop me from buying/playing a game if it was one I really wanted to play...

I have to say it doesn't bother me all that much. If anything the fact that they're not that common makes them all that more interesting. I got my first ones on Viking a couple of weeks back and I thought they were pretty cool. The achievements that really annoy me are the 0g ones. :mad:

06-10-2009, 10:42 AM
I hate them their just stupid, 1 reason i hate is fifa 09 achievement score in the 89 minute for 19g, now I am always on odd numbers & it annoys me even more when say the other night i landed right on 49,999 which was very annoying.

I dont mind =P GRAW and Luxor 2 got me

I actually prefer my gamerscore to be odd. That's why I haven't gone for "The Peterson" achievement on Fifa.

Ligerblaze
06-10-2009, 12:25 PM
I think they do it to make you keep playing the game to even out your score again :p I got this odd score playing Luxor and i'll be damned if i havent tried to beat the game now, lol.

Missis Beki
06-10-2009, 12:35 PM
I would hate my score to have an un-even number if im honest, I prefer it ended in 5 or 0, I dont think ive gone out of my way to avoid such games but i might do :P

Ooyah
06-10-2009, 12:44 PM
Must admit that it doesn't really bother me at all.

Besides, it is my fault... all I need to do is to complete Bullet Witch on Hell mode to even it out again... ;)

Actually, that sounds like a cool score to land on. I would've kept a picture of that one...

I would like to see odd scores more often, actually. They help to diversify the scores more, and reduce the chance of a tie when competing against someone...

06-10-2009, 03:24 PM
My GS ending in a 0 or a 5 is about the only thing I'm OCD about. I usually avoid games with weird points unless I know I can finish it or get all the the odd numbered achievements. Like TMNT or The Orange Box.

SuperNova X2X
06-10-2009, 03:31 PM
It doesn't really bother me any more. The way I look at it, an achievement is an achievement. I'm not going to complain when I get one :)

Revolver
06-10-2009, 04:03 PM
I honestly didn't know there were these types of achievements.
I always thought they were multiples of 5, what would be some examples?:confused:
I don't think I've come across any of those.

TheLastAntidote
06-10-2009, 04:19 PM
I share your pain, look at my gamertag on the lower left (20,308g). While it is something small and stupid to complain about, I do hate seeing it that way. I always hope to unlock an odd score achievement to even out the damn 8. Either something ending with 2g, or 7g.

OneSweetShannon
06-10-2009, 04:20 PM
Mine's wonky right now because of Luxor II, but I'm in no rush to correct it. I only want to correct it by getting the achievements I haven't finished yet on the same game, I don't want to put a bandaid on by getting odd numbered achievements on something else to raise it to 5 or 0. That would just give me yet another incomplete game on my card.

Coadster1
06-10-2009, 04:32 PM
Same here, like GRAW, I can't stand that game, and all the achievements are like, 12G, 3G, 33G, stuff like that, I mean I can live with it, but I like games ending with a multiple of 5.

Barad
06-10-2009, 04:33 PM
I hate odd numbered gamerscore! :mad: lucky i have all the cars on forza 2! :woop: (anyone whose played it will know what i mean ;))

06-10-2009, 04:39 PM
I love how many people say they have OCD on this site. It irks me a little to have them, but it's not a big deal. I certainly don't give a shit if it's on someone else's card. Plus, since I go for the full 1000/200 it doesn't matter anyway, it will even itself out.

khamelion
06-10-2009, 05:24 PM
i wonder how many people here will go ape if they ever reach 99,999...
as for how i feel about it, luxor 2 stuffed it ages ago and a hankering for mk3 and dishwasher didn't help. it's not that big a deal, if it bothers me that much, i sit down one day and get the remaining achievements to get a 5 or 0 end number. bullet witch however can stuff its 1g.

limination
06-10-2009, 08:27 PM
Fucking hate those achievements..Viking has the most I've seen out of games though, every other one is like 12..but at least they're easy so they even out again :D

Spartan EXR
06-10-2009, 08:44 PM
Oh man, I really hate those achievements. I'd rather get an "0" than a "4"... Argh!

Although I think it looks pretty cool, I would never get an achievement that doesn't end with a 0 or a 5.

Domantos
06-12-2009, 11:47 AM
lol, I think this is quite funny. You should look at this as a challenge, if you get a number other than 0 or 5 then you have to hunt down an achievement that will give you an 'even' number again =D

06-12-2009, 11:49 AM
At first I thought it would bother me, seeing as how the volume on anything I use has to be 5's, but once I got my first odd point achievement, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I would prefer ending in a 0 or 5, but a point is a point.

I was surprised when I first came to this site just to see how many gamers have OCD, I don't see why its so bad, I would LOVE to have a differant number at the end of my GS just to make me differant
I've been looking for a fun game that will give me a wierd number like that btw :D

EcT Felix
06-12-2009, 05:34 PM
I agree. Look at FIFA09 i tried to not score in the 89 minute. but i did. not my gamerscored is fucked until i play 50 hours.... which will......not happen! FUCK YOU FIFA YOU BETTER HAVE AN EASY 1G IN FIFA10!

not to be technical or anything (lol BIG disclaimer), but 0 IS a multiple of 5 =P

I actually think it would be cool to get 99,999. Way harder to hit on the head than 100,000.

DestroyThineslf
06-12-2009, 08:41 PM
Yeah, I like the "even" finish on the end of my gs as well. Just like I cant seem to part with some games because Im only missing 1 or 2 cheeves ,even though I'll probably never get them *cough*7 day survivor*cough*

I know one off the top of my head.

In The Orange Box in Half Life 2, if you use the Gravity Gun to shoot a ball into a basketball goal it goes "achievement unlocked - Two Points!" and gives you two achievement points.

About not balancing out, there's a 13 point achievement shortly before that where you talk to a Vortigaunt that's got a bad cough and he's hiding in a sewer pipe, so it does even out, but meh.

1. Savant is categorisation of those with developmental problems, such as autism. A person isn't savant, they're autistic.
2. I think you'll find that funniness if subjective, so a person can make a joke about autism thinking it will be funny, and people can find it funny. So, it's entirely possible that it really is very close to funny to joke about autism.

Wow, I think I might be grammar autistic. (That last sentence was ironic, for the irony-impaired.)

Edit: In response to the OP, no game will ever add up (Ie.1000/1250) to a non- '5/0' number, so problem solved! If you start a game, finish it! :D

So what It end like a 1,2,3,4,6,7,8 and nine. In real life you awared will never will be even out of what you did. And even in tax in life does not goes to the next 5. It is baes by the persent of a dollar that goes in count in your tax. You minght just learn about how tax are done by having a uneven numer of gamerscoer.

It's nice to have a GS that ends in 5 or 0, but it doesn't matter to me too much. Eventually it will even out when you get the full 1000

06-12-2009, 11:57 PM
Maybe he's talking about the new XBL version of Fling the Teacher (http://www.dwmbeancounter.com/BCTutorSite/TestLectures/Tests/Games/Fling/Intro/FlingBasic.html), an accounting quiz. Lotsa fun... the only problem is that it has negative achievements that balance out all the positive ones for a net gain of 0.
