Whilst wasting some more of my life playing the hell that is Crash Of The Titans. Before going back to Fifa 09 to get my gamerscore back to a 0 or 5, I was wondering why games put this in there, I mean really why is unlocking all the costumes worth 36gs?

Do we think it's to get people to play more? That's about all I can think of, but in reality, why do they care if we spend 1 hour or 100 hours playing?

I just don't see why they do this.

Rant over.

They do it to make the OCD like achievment junkies (aka most everyone here) play the game more. I would guess they think "Play more, love more"

It's a conspiracy, man! It's all the government! They're playing with our minds, man!

Maybe to them it doesn't matter... Or possibly most people don't care? I sure don't care and never will that mine is odd. You have to think about others, not just yourself.

Yeah, I'm with this. Couldn't care less what number my gamerscore ends in.

I doubt it's any conspiracy of sorts. Perhaps they're just trying to have fun with the achievements.

I actually prefer an odd gamerscore. Am I strange?

I know it doesn't bother some people, and I respect that.

It wasn't so much a "I hate the world and want to die because they do this"

It's just confusing as to why they do it.

What is so 'odd' about odd numbers anyway?

There was a psychological study done on odd and even numbers. Something to do with people subliminally feeling odd numbers to be less "safe", "secure" or "stable".

666 is an even number. Safe? Secure?

Surprised that they ain't got those "conspiracy" odd, weird numbered cheevos in Assassin's Creed games then. Lol

I don't care what my GS is as long as it keeps moving up!

The number of the beast actually meant to be 616.

i think its coz if someone started a game and had 2 points for example, they would be more inclined to finish it to get the extra 3 points to make it up.

For example in borderlands zombie dlc, you get 1 point for the beginning and have to finish it for the other 49

i guess it means people will give the game another chance and perhaps play it a bit more, and perhaps change their mind about it - i mean changing a couple achievements from 5 / 15 to 3 / 17 wont exactly make less people buy it
