So, who wont? Who will? Who's given up? Who's shit a brick over it? And who's boycotting Bill Gates? Post here what your intentions are, and feel free to update your post further down the line if your plans towards this game's 1000G change!

Example:
I'm going for 1000, but I have other games to play. This is going to be a casual 1000 though, I'll buy a new points card every pay check and if there are games I want, I'll buy 'em, and work on medals on games I enjoy. If not, fuck it and they'll go to Live arcade games instead.

i probably will go for a 1000 but i aint too worried about getting it ASAP- ill only download 1 or 2 decent arcade then wait till more decent games come out to download if it takes more than 1 or 2 years oh well ill get over it lol

I'm not going to go for the full 1000 but I'll try to get a few achievements. I'll buy a few of the games but I'm not going to buy enough to get the full 1000 most likely.

By the way, you have a nice arcade Apoch. I'll have to visit it again later to fully check it out.

Yeah will get 2 or 3 games per month, hopfully get 1000g within a year. I hope first person in world to get 1k uses this site so he/she can post and let is know.

I definitelly plan to get a full 1000G, but of course i'm in no hurry. I'll just purchase a few games I like, and eventually it will happen. I don't really have that much time to invest into it, a couple of hours per week is enough for me. I hope to have a 1000 by New Year 2011.

I'll go for 1000 but not in a rush. I'm only going to buy the ones I like or are challenging and only a couple a month or something like that.

There are plenty of other games to play while I build up to 1000G on this one.

I voted no - I will most likely never get 1000 in this one... I'm simply just not _that_ fond of old games :P

I will gradually get the 1000 on this, so yes for me...

Yes, I intend to pursue the 1K. I might not often dedicate myself to the full 1K on games, but I like the idea of this game, it is a different way of playing to usual. Naturally, it would depend on the overall cost, and the quality of games being released in the future, but I feel that Microsoft will have quite a few aces up their sleeves. I am really looking forward to seeing how this one plays out, and, at the moment, fully intend a 1K pursuit.

Yes, I will over time.

kiler01
03-25-2010, 01:25 PM
well now i'll go for 1k or as much as i can. cuz basicly because of my own stupidity i tried this on my main account, which means 56 ach and 1k points - ruining my completion ratings. still can't get the whole thing behind this. but will try to complete it.

TwinTipZ
03-25-2010, 01:26 PM
If Midway and Namco games are released then yes, I will get the full 1k.

stopXwhispering
03-25-2010, 03:34 PM
I will try for 1k, but probably be too lazy in the end and turn to some other game that catches my interest more. I also do not have too much time to spend on my gaming anymore, and FFXIII is still my no.1 priority ;D

I like the idea of the game room though, however it would have been more enjoyable if you could actually be walking around there with your avatar and meet with other friends in the arcades. The way it is now, it just feels kinda stiff and non-interactive unfortunately..

I'm hoping for some more exciting games to come though :Bounce:

I'll probably eventually get the 1k, but I wouldn't say I'm aiming for it specifically. I'm just gonna buy the arcade titles that I enjoy and see myself playing those odd times when I haven't got a major game that I really want to play. I quite happily sat and played Shao-Lin's Road last night for nearly and hour.

As others have said, this isn't a one-or-two-sitting kind of 1000. This is a long, slow burn. I'll get there eventually, it's just a matter of when there are 26 games I want to own. Hell, day 1 I got 350/1000 with just 5 games and I haven't even boosted challenges yet.

03-25-2010, 05:44 PM
As long as they keep supporting/adding new games I'll eventually get the 1,000. It may take a year or so though since I won't be buying games every month.

k2345
03-25-2010, 06:09 PM
If they include decent arcade game's in the future then why not ?, I'll only buy 1 game a month and see how it goes

Pucca Princess
03-25-2010, 06:18 PM
I'm going for the 1k, but it will take a while. I've only got 4 games right now (and buying another four tomorrow), and it's going to take time for me to get enough games for all those medals. Plus it's going to take time to earn the medals themselves, seeing as so far I have the grand total of 1 medal :p

Gamechamp
03-25-2010, 06:27 PM
I will, but it's not something I'll be working for. I'll just get it over time as I buy games I like.

03-25-2010, 06:28 PM
I'm gonna go for the full 1000, but I'm going to take my time and wait for games that I want to buy. I'm not going to go out of my way buying games that I don't like just to get medals.

Lord Gothic
03-25-2010, 07:33 PM
I voted no but i migth change my mind later on and work slowly towards the 1000 points. I think its still to expensive to buy all those games for the achievements and im not sure which games im going to buy if i will work towards the 1000.

03-25-2010, 08:47 PM
I will definitly get 1000 in Game Room but i'm in no rush to do so.

03-25-2010, 08:52 PM
I will gradually get the 1000 on this, so yes for me...

Gradually as well, as long as some of my favorite classics I used to play for the Atari when I was a kid come out

Nikke84
03-25-2010, 08:58 PM
I'm sure I will but I'm gonna let it take as long as it needs, I'm not gonna rush buy games I don't want just to get the achievements faster.

03-25-2010, 09:30 PM
im going for it but im waiting on new games first. ill get my 1000 eventually but i dont care to rush by playing games i dont like.

03-25-2010, 09:58 PM
i'm hoping to be the first to get 1K. But I only have 305/1000 now, (and MGC ranks me 11 in the world) so I'm not really that far.

100% on Game Room is a question of "when", not "if".

Unless there's a title I'm looking forward to, I'll likely buy the games with whatever MS points I have leftover. Beats picking up some useless themes or avatar props.

dirge
03-26-2010, 01:57 AM
Yes, but not until some of my favourite games of old come out. Not too fussed with the release day ones. Hoping for some like Kung Fu Master, P.O.W., Strider and some NeoGeo ones! Who knows, maybe one day i'll be able to have my Game Room exactly as I remember the best arcade place we had round here back in the late 80's and early 90's!:woop:

I currently have about 33 of the achievements and plan on racking up at least 7 more tonight...give or take.

I'll go for it in stages, kinda of like the OP said. I'm not in a rush, just work on it casually. Only have about 155 right now.

03-27-2010, 07:52 AM
I have a friend who is already at 700G. He bought almost all the games and has Gold Medals on almost all of them. Ridiculous.

As for me, I probably won't waste too much of my time going to 1000G. I'm perfectly content with just enjoying the game. I was actually wicked excited to find out that if you purchase cabinets on one account, then anyone on your Xbox can use those games in their Arcades as well. My wife and I keep challenging each other with the games I already got. It's a lot of fun, and it's taking care of the Challenge achievements. :woop:

03-27-2010, 07:54 AM
I'll go for 1000, but only with games i like. don't buy games only for achievements.

Arenazombie
03-27-2010, 09:37 AM
I'm a completionist so whenever I should try this I will go for the full 1000.
But right now I'm still waiting for opinions to come in to see how much a full 1k would cost and how much fun this whole game room stuff is.
Best would be that they release a Disc with a load of titles already on it, then I would get it for sure.

I've got 16 games and currently have 680/1000. I have all Gold medals in all my games except for 1. Asteroids is the only game giving me trouble getting the Gold on points....and the damn Game Room freezes so much its taking away from my gold medal earning time. Getting the gold medals in these games gives me the same sense of accomplishment that an achievement gives me. Even after I get all 1000, I am going to be playing a lot of Game room just to get gold medals...as long as they fix this constant freezing up, which is frustrating as hell.

*edit* ok scratch that, I just owned Asteroids. 35,000 points and 7 minutes survived.

I'm dead on with you. I will 1000 it, but it is my casual completion. I like to have one or two better games that I'm playing then a casual game in the background. Currently I'm trying to finish off Metro 2033 & Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. My casual ones are Game Room & Hasbro Family Game Night.

My last completions were Borderlands (all the DLC) and a silly one, Asterix at the Olympic Games, and an arcade KrissX. Next games started will be Bioshock 2, a silly one, Where the Wild Things Are, and probably The Maw or 3 on 3 for the arcade title. Shooting for 100,000 GS by the end of hopefully 75 completions...

Will most certainly go for 1000.

890/1000 at the moment. Got every Gold Medal for Point Buster and Survival. Need a few Time Spender medals, the level 17, the 36 h. . and naturally, the 2 ach's which are currently unobtainable.

890/1000 at the moment.Holy cheevo snacker, Batman!

I'm at 230 and MGC gave me as #30 in the world just yesterday (apparently, though, within 12 hours I've just been beaten to the race by 700 people). There seems to be quite something going on in this game.

Anyways, I'll go for 1000, as well, but as a slow burner, too. Actually, I usually do this - occasionaly getting games out after a year or two of not playing and finally finishing it.

ApochWeiss
03-29-2010, 08:02 PM
I decided to go for it moreso then I wanted to before. I'm actually really liking the Game Room more then I thought I would. I've been hammering away at some of the games and enjoying playing them. It's been a while since I just casually played a simple game, though it's mostly that I feel challenged to beat my own high score which is what I love about this thing.

Only grabbed 7 of the games, didnm't really have the money for any more but I'll pick up a points card when I get paid (two technically since there's some arcade games I want too for casual gamerscoring :D) and grab some more titles. Sitting at 465 right now, 32 cheevos unlocked I believe, so getting 1000 on this will obviously happen. I'll keep going until I hit level 50 too (since it's the cap but you know that will get raised at some point)

It'll be a casual 1000G for me. I guess a year seems about right.

i'll get the 1000, but also going the casual route. I've got four games so far and kicking around getting a couple more but that'll be it out of the initial selection.

Joey Longshot
03-30-2010, 12:59 AM
Most definitely. If you're willing to spend money on this game, it's really fun and totally worth it.

Habilis_Orian
03-30-2010, 01:28 AM
I'm going to try to go for the 1000. It's pretty simple.

BUT

I'm not going to buy all the games they have out now because most of them (in my opinion of course) aren't worth it.

I have 3 games now: Tempest, Shao-Lin's Road, and Astro Smash. I may get Red Baron soon but other than that nothing.

I'll just wait for them to release better games and over time I'll get the 1000.

I'm in no rush.

Im going for it and im going legit... that means a lot of failed challenges and a lot of determinded efforts for gold medal scores to reach those higher level achievements. One thing is for sure though is im happy to wait, ive got all the games i want for it so far - here hoping April brings a couple more that i really want to add to my medal, Game Room level.

linktriforce007
04-06-2010, 02:30 AM
Currently at 910/1000. The games are too hard for me to get right now, so I'm just gonna wait it out until more medals are easier to obtain via waiting for new games to be released.

I will have 1000 in this. One of the things I've been the most interested in in gaming for quite a while. Didn't think much of it at the concept stage, but now that it's here, I'm hooked. I just hope they smooth the bugs out sooner rather than later.

I disagree. It might get more expensive or time consuming, but that is certainly not the same thing as harder. All the achievements here are cake. It just takes the time and money, which I am willing to gladly spend enough of both.

I agree on that. I've got every gold medal possible (70) and I don't believe that any of these medals have caused a truly tough challenge. I guess, with a little practice, that anyone will be able to get 1000.

Allow me to explain my angle. For some people, there are hard medals to obtain (this being me, included). After you obtain gold in games, getting more and more minimizes the amount of games you have to choose from, so in the end, you'll get stuck doing the ones you have a hard time getting.

So far I'm at 800/1000, with 7 achievements left to go. I'm working on the time spender ones and the final levels, however, I haven't bought all games yet, since I didn't enjoy the demos, for example Football, Mountain Madness, Sea Battle and Sub Hunt.. they just didn't float my boat. I'm looking forward to further additions of games, good games plz! ^_^

Btw, where do you see the overall leaderboard for the game? Or is there even one?
I can only find the ones for each game individually..

04-11-2010, 02:01 PM
i have 16 games so far and 820gs. the last few games i didnt really want to get so ill wait before i get any more so more can come out. leveling up will be the hard part. i can get at least bronze in everything but going higher than that on some games is pretty tough

I'm going for the full 1000G. Game Room is a great concept and I do hope that even better games are released but it's awesome playing the games I used to play a while back. Hopefully Microsoft will maybe even increase the gamerscore for this seeing as how they anticipate having so many downloadable titles for it.

I'm going to get it as soon as possible. Get that completionist portion over with and move on to something else. Although, it's likely they'll keep increasing something with achievements in order to keep people interested.

ooh I hope I hope! It would be great if they increased the amount of achievements, perhaps game specific ones, like defeating a certain boss in a game or something similar ^_^ :woop: Not just increasing the amount of hours spent to like "5G, spend 199 hours playing games in your arcade" ...

There's no way they'll have game-specific achievements unless the game was free. If they ever add anything, they'll just be the "Get X Medals", "Spend X Hours Playing", and "Reach Level X" achievements as the library grows. Adding more Challenges achievements would also help maintain activity.

Except for the fact that they have announced that they expect to have 1000 games live within three years. I'm pretty sure anybody can find enough games (no matter how bad they suck) to get all of the achievements out of that...

Oh god, please don't curse us with the 2600 version of River Raid. 5200 version PLEASE. Also, Gorf is one of the main things I am hoping for as well. I have NO idea how possible it even is, but I would love to have it along with Phoenix (i believe that's the name). Also, an awesome racing game called LED storm that, to my knowledge, was never released on any system in the US. There are so many great, lost arcade games out there that I would love to see resurrected. Also, again not sure how possible it would be, but the X-men 6 player (of course), the original Star Wars arcade game (hell, I'd take empire strikes back on the 2600), etc. I have high hopes for it, and with 1000 games, they are SURE to have some really awesome surprises coming.

Well, originally, I thought the game was free and you could recieve 1000G. I did not know at the time, however, that I had to pay for games and such. Due to that, I shall not be getting 1000 from this game.

Ravenousguy
04-23-2010, 11:22 AM
I'm about the same as most people on here. I would be happy to get the full 1000, but after buying all the games i wanted there's nothing left that i would want.

I'm already at 890 for it and it wasn't all that hard. I just hope more games come out that are worth buying otherwise i wont worry about it.

Come on Pitfall, River raid and Beserker! And a few other games that i honestly cannot remember their names :p

Got 890 as well and beat all 20 "3 medal games" to gold, except for 2 time spender medals. Asteroids Deluxe was a pain to get gold on though.

I'm going for 1000 and right now I have 10 of the arcade games. Unfortunately, my game has frozen while saving the last of the gold medals TWICE! I've had to start over for now my third time, but hopefully since it was just patched I won't have a problem.
The good part is now I'm awesome at the games since I have played them so much!

Except for the fact that they have announced that they expect to have 1000 games live within three years. I'm pretty sure anybody can find enough games (no matter how bad they suck) to get all of the achievements out of that...

I'm referring to the present 30 at the current moment. If I have 1000 to choose from, of course it'll be easier

I'll go for the 1000G eventually, may take the rest of this year or longer because I don't want to spend too much money on this.

Starting to look like no one will ever get 1000g in this Charlie-Foxtrot of a product...

I was going to go for the 1000, but until we know if it's going to be supported in the future, I refuse to buy any more games. So, on hold for now.

edit: Yeah, now we seem to be back on track. I'm back to the grind on this one.

Just reached level 20 and currently at 980/1000.

The "Fancy Arcade" achievement is not yet obtainable, since there are only 10 unique themes available currently (including the new Activision one and the theme when reaching level 22), not counting any of the 4 generic themes.
