That happened to my wife when she joined my Borderlands game too, she got bombarded by achievements because I was so high level. Can't say either of us really cares.

It happens, I'm not very sure why but I suppose no one really complains.

It's sort like free achievements. I played Fable 2 with a friend and every achievement he got, I got it too. I liked it!

I find that to be kind of dumb. The description for Fable II's achievements actually say, "do this or watch someone else do it". I didn't have to find a single collectible, I just joined someone's game and got those achievements. Kind of wanted to get them myself. :(

Dumb or not, that's the way the game was made. It was a cheap way to share them.

I prefer to earn them. No matter how hard or free they are.

I think Fable II is an amazing game. You should definitely get it, especially since it's so cheap. I've seen it for $5 brand new in stores. But no, if they have all the achievements you don't get them. It works like that for collectibles and maybe a couple others, but most of them you have to be there when they do the achievement requirement.

Fable 2 is a really good RPG. That game was a gateway game to some more amazing RPG games I would of never played otherwise.

Thank you Fable 2 for opening my eyes to the RPG world.

Just play the game with them and as they do certain tasks it will trigger the achievements.

Hey at least you get the achievements. I GF games with me and gets annoyed of the games where we play split-screen, then to not earn achievements.

Can't say I've had that happen to me. I've played coop before, but we both started at the same time and still had to earn achievements separately.

Getting free achievements like that is the same as game saving isn't it? The only difference is you didn't get a game save? You still didn't EARN the achievements.

I joined a random co-op game on The Darkness 2 and it happened to be on the last level. I decided to stay and got the achievement for beating the final boss, without even having to play the previous levels.
