I don't even know if I should even post this but... Is it possible to play games without getting the achievements? Like I think that you'd only be able to play the regular Xbox games, and games without multi-player achievements or the Indie games. What's your thoughts?

Yeah im sure you could play "some" games without getting achievements but it would be very hard, since for some games you get achievements for completing a level etc... but some games only have achievements where you have to go out of your way to get them like Juiced 2.

this is possible,

play a game offline and then erase your gamerprofile. When you recover it, the game will be gone.

TO my understanding that is the only way to do what your saying.

Are you talking about having an option to "turn off" achievements, or have an option like blood and gore on gears of war?

well why don't you just play the game and not care about the achievements popping up?

You can get lots of achievements by not playing multiplayer

I don't think there is a way to not get achievements at all. If it bothers you, I guess turn off notifications so you won't get the pop up thing if you end up unlocking one.

I think he actually means is it possible to play a game and not unlock any achievements, rather than how to turn them off.

I'm sure every game has achievements that, willing or not, gets you achievements.

I say just play and ignore them popping up, if you really want that.

Another method is turning off notifications. You won't ever get that Achievement Unlocked pop up...however you won't get one for anything else either.

Couldn't you sign out all profiles and then just play the game like that?
Think that might work.

Id say most games need you to be signed into a profile wouldnt they?
For autosaves and the like

There is a way to play games on your Xbox without getting achievements.

Play Original Xbox games. GTA San Andreas, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory.... I still play some of them nowadays.

Don't you just get the warning, "You can't save and you can't unlock achievements"?

I really don't get the point in it though.
If it's for completion percentage or anything, just make a second profile.
