View Full Version : "Universal" Achievements

10-06-2007, 08:47 AM
This idea has crossed my mind couple of times now, I'm not sure though if someone has posted something like this before.

Would you like if there would be these "universal" achievements, that are earned based on your overall effort used on playing games? Examples could be get x (very high amount) of kills in fps games, drive x distance in racing games, and so on. There could also be ones like play x amount of hours total, or play/complete x amount of retail/arcade games.

Not really, plus there is a lot of potiental for them to be unlocked via easier games in the genre. I guess there could be 'Dashboard' Achievements, like play x type of game under your GamerTag or 1000 hours played.

I don't think so really, it would be very hard to implement it all in and cause alot of troubles for the designers/programmers and the games that were already out would all need new patches etc.

Like the badges at 360voice? It would be cool, but I can live without it...

An interesting idea but every genre would have an easiest game to unlock it on. Unless they gave certain games different weightings but it would take a lot of work to implement.

Yea, this is just speculation, it's quite late to implement such a system when so many games have already been made for the console. And btw the x number of kills could be done so that these would have to be online kills, custom and ranked kills combined.

Yeah, this would be an awful idea. It'd just be like the level-grinding boredom we saw with RPG's.

Developers are lazy, this will not happen.

However much you think that. if you owned a games company and are making a big game, would you make something that would take a bit of time to do and no added profit included. Its just a loss of money for nothing.

That would be a great idea. Do certain things under x gamertag. I would be happy if they did that, but it would be a ridiculous amount of work, that I think they'd rather avoid.

Play X amount of Games achievments, X amount of Demo Downloaded. and then you can do the same with buying Pics and Themes and such.
