Couldn't you just download it, and not open the program and then just delete it?

That's totally different. You played that game, ran that risk, and did something to earn that achievement. I simply started game room and was "rewarded" with an achievement that I didn't want, before I even reached the main menu.

Now in order to max game room, I would have to spend money which I don't want to spend, as I have no interest in playing it. Presumably, you own PC gears, and would not have to spend anything further to max it out achievements-wise.

Lol! It sucks that all these people are mad about earning the first 5g. Just make another silver profile and play it on there, that way you won't ruin your main GT and you can screw around on anything.

this makes me so pissed as well. i have guitar hero 3 for 5/1000 because my friend brought it over one time. and now i have this garbage on my profile that is a total waste of money. they draw you in by giving you that first 5g and then you cant delete that game history. i am so angry about this.

i have bought the asteroids delux game and i am looking for someone who also has it and wants to boost challenges. send me a friend request at

the last digit in my gamertag is the letter O, not the number zero

Exact same thing happened to me. I just wish I didn't get it. I'm really thinking about calling MSFT to get them to take it down. maybe that's what you guys can do?

This has been an issue for a long time, and it really looks like Microsoft are not going to budge on this one. That being said, if anything makes them change their policies, it will be the feedback from this monstrosity!

Best thing I can think of is to just contact Sentuamessage or something!

I thought I would load the thing up to check it out but nooo they planned that by throwing your ass right into the Test Room or whatever the hell it is.. Ping!

ruined his whole YEAR.:biglaugh. I laughed so hard.

I used to be more concerned about having crap games with low achievements but in the end, it isn't the end of the world. It will get buried to the bottom of your list (like Yaris did for me) and you will forget about, before the year is up...

Why it pisses people off i never know. the fact people think other gamers are going to check out their card and do the maths is pathetic. It not like anyone wins anything for having high gamer score anyway, lads seem to think gamerscore is some sort of internet cock, the bigger the better. When im going thru a game to complete it, im having fun figuring out what to do and reading forums for help, im not gettin aroused by the thought one of my friends might actually look at my score and/or care.

im yet to hear anyone happy that they can pick up 85 or so G's for free!

And 80G for free is great. Took me fifteen minutes, and I'll never go back to Gay Room again.

For people that are completionists, can't you go to the game library on the dashboard and delete it? I know you can delete games off your list but not sure if you can still delete it if you got an achievement for that certain game.

not quite true. Some people check out each other gamercards, score and completion. I know I do and a lot of the people on my list (many from this site) do. I know that because I get some messages sometimes about how I completed some games or congrats on completing some games. And that's nice.
Also, a lot of people around here don't give a **** about a lot of gamerscore or every extra free gamerscore. What most people care about is the completion of a game. Because the actual completion feels like an accomplishment - 85G in a game you don't want to complete feels like (unfair) incompletion.

But I also agree with that the OP should have used a second account of cause to check out Game Room first. So basically it's his own fault.

'Microsoft tarnished my meaningless gamertag with a product I don't like! How dare they! They should have never made something that I wouldn't like! Don't they know my tag is the ultimate representation of who I am and it will always be with me forever?! SCREW MICROSOFT!!!'

These are the same types of personalities that will do shit like nuke boosting in MW2. They'll actually spend $50 on a LIVE account to create a junk profile that a friend will play while they kill that friend over and over and over. Like anyone gives a shit that their k/d ratio is 2.67! We all know you boosted it, lamebrain, and no one cared about your stats to begin with (good or bad).

I'm going to start emailing players that have games on their tags that only have one chevo completed. I'll be like: "WTF? Why do you suck at life so much? Do you know how important this issue is? There are gamerscorless children dying in Africa right now that would love to be able to play the game you simply discarded!" LOL

It is unfair it does this.

Whether you agree or not some people like to keep their GC clean. You cannot demo the game without getting an achievement. It is kind of like how when you used yo try the arcade games but if you didn't like them they were on your GC.

To all people who say that the OP is an idiot and should have used a second account; when have trial versions unlocked achievements? Getting achievements for free is good but only if you can get them all.

At the end of the day it is his gamercard and he has a right to be annoyed about this.

You guys do realize that you wont die for having one game on your list that isn't 100%. Its not like a midget will come out of your closet and kick you in the balls for having an incomplete game. Also I found it to be somewhat fun in the countless hours I put into so just buy a few now and buy new games every now and then and you wont think that you wasted 135 bucks even though you did.

I lol'd at every idiot who posted a "BOO-HOO LOL, why do you even care about achievements anyway you loser!" on xbox360achievements.org. It's a website for people who are into achievements and completionism and boosting. If you don't like it why are you even on here?

For a lot of people on this site, their internet penis is similar to their real penis; long is good, but what really matters is girth.

Now, to carry the metaphor further than I should, my gamer score is only around the 21k mark (still larger than average ;)), but my completion ratio is a thick, veiny 99.73%. Or it was. Before Gay Room. So yeah, OP I feel your pain, and anyone spending their time on a site dedicated to things they don't even care about is a much bigger loser than they think YOU are.

Finally, a pre-emptive response to anybody who feels to flame, ridicule, belittle or tbh even disagree with my post:

You play a game to demo it, sticking a retail game in your console, getting score off of it and it being on your card forever is a totally different story to downloading an arcade game to try it and having an achievement pop up thus it sticking to your card forever.

Either though it totally blows. I would be in favour of possibly being able to edit your whole gamercard. Although this would be a hackers/annoying brother/asshole friend/enemies delight aswell.

Perhaps they could implement a safeguard against this such as a unique password or soemthing for editing your gamercard. Although this could also ruin truthful and free market research MS get from gamercards :)

You do realize that this was actually a Full Game and not a demo, right?

If you're that concerned about Gamescore, just make an alternate account and try the games on that one just so you won't get 5G or whatever on a game you may not like.

I agree with the OP... my completion % is only 83%, but I've been slowly bringing it up over the past few months and it matters to me. The instant 5 points is total BS.

And to those who mentioned it, yes ppl check my GC all the time and comment on it, good or bad, depending on what I do. I'm the same way. That's why they are my peers and we come to this site.

On the other hand,
For a lot of people on this site, their internet penis is similar to their real penis; long is good, but what really matters is girth. made me ROFL so hard that it almost made up for the points.
