Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that in-game leaderboards are completely useless? It seems like as soon as the game is released someone has hacked the leaderboard to some insane number. I was just on Dead Rising 2 and the top 100 are all hacked into the billions and every gamertag has less than 1000 GS. Most of them have less than 100 in Dead Rising 2! With it being as bad as it is I wonder why companies even bother putting leaderboards in anymore.

(If you plar DR2 and have a massive amount legit then my mistake for you. The mass majority have hacked the top)

DR2 leaderboard are hacked so is every other big game that people want to number 1 in the world on

They are shockingly bad but i still probably wouldnt look at them even if they were hack-proof

They are a bit pointless in my opinion, I never ever look at them any more.

That's why I don't care about them. Someone's always going to hack their way with an impossible score in order to keep that #1 spot.

Leaderboards and indeed pointless unless you are comparing with Friends which is all I ever use them for.

I don`t see the point in leaderboards but obviously someone is going to hack the leaderboards.

The only leaderboards I look as is in Trials HD. No hacks that game is awesome.

Yeah, that is all I use it for as well... it feels good knowing you beat all of your friends, or most of them.

Global leaderboards = pointless

Friends leaderboards = a good marker for your ability in a game (and bragging rights if you're top)

Same here, I don't care for the top 10 or anything, just go straight to friends once in a while.

My friends are all I look at anymore as well. You would think with how bad it is getting for hacking leaderboards they would only put a friends one in snce that iss all most people care about.

I never followed leader boards. But I understand a lot of people do and it kind of sucks that you spend 50+ bucks to use live and they still allow all this hacking.. Oh well I guess its not the end of the world.. But i can understand why it would be frustrating to people who beat the game legit and should be on the leader boards. Fucking hackers I'll never understand them.

The only thing leaderboards are good for is to rank hackers...so yeah, pretty useless for average gamers.
