seriously, do we need to catalog who has gotten 1000/1000 in madden? seems kind of pointless to me. anyone else feel the same way?

I quite like them. Yes some are easy to get into (yes Kong were looking at you), some are a moderately difficult i.e. Condemned 970 and some are just downright difficult i.e. Veteran Club for COD2. But at least all gamers should be able to get into at least one of the clubs. If they were all based around the games that were the most difficult to get the 1000 (or whatever the total is) then it would make some of the people who are not so 'hardcore' feel total crap. Just my opinion but I'm sure some people would feel the same???

Yeah, but I'm gonna have to go check all the ones I got 1000 in again to make sure I'm on the list. In some, I posted, but I didn't get put on the list.

The majority of people wanted them.... So we created them :D

Just remember, we listen to your requests ;)

There's no major problem with them. If you think they're "pointless," as you put it, check out some of the other, repeated, or off topic threads. The 1000 lists are good.

Look at it this way.

I could tell you I got full gamerscore in 11 games. BFD, right? But if you were a certified score whore (like me), you'd be interested in knowing which games were easy enough for me to get full score in. That's where the lists come in. Seeing in a centralized spot that 75 members beat a certain game is less pointless than 75 posts by different people saying "ya i beet that gaym it was teh suxx0rz"

Thus, not pointless at all. :D

At least someone understands the relevance ;)

Take a look at the GRAW, Football Manager, Dead or Alive ones compared to Kong, NBA, etc ;)

And if tied on FM, add in the points from Tiger.

If still tied, the number of online games played in Tiger wins :p

Does there have to be a point? I dont understand what the problem is, its not like you are forced to look at them. It makes people feel good knowing that their achievements dont go unnoticed. Thats my opinion atleast, they arent hurting anyone.

I say leave em. Who knows those 1000 clubs could be the only thing keeping those suicidily depressed people going because they think being noticed for their gaming adventures in their mom's basement is all that matters. So in a way the xbox 360 site is SAVING LIVES! Ya thats it... Good for you www.xbox360achievements.org !

I hate to bring this up, BUT.......


.....the big problem with these 1000 clubs is that there is no distinction between the legit and the f***ing cheaters.

Why not mark all the known cheaters with a big red C (or something). I don't care if they didn't cheat on this particular game, they should be marked as cheaters. This will bring a level of credibility to these lists, give proper credit to those who do not cheat and maybe discourage some of the cheaters.

If this is too hard or makes some people uncomfortable, why not footnote each 1000 list saying that it is possible to cheat on this game to get 1000 points! (on the games that apply)

I agree with you on that especially with games like fifa 06 world cup where i earned the 500 point challenge achievement legit and then theres those game save people out there.

Especially that damn game - I have mucho respect for anyone that can get any legit points on that game. :bow:

It is only while this is a new idea. Once the majority of members sign up, that will die down ;)

The reason people want there names on 1000 clubs is to enhance they're E-penis(tm), Its all about the length and girth.

In an attempt to get this back on topic.. :/

Yes the only down side I see is it does end up whoring the new posts list. Which is a pain. We also have an easy/quick 1000 and fiendishly difficult/time consuming 1000 thread, I dont think it serves to judge the ease of games more effectively than those threads, its just a get ur name in lights post, which no one will ever read, but everyone wants to post onto. I personally havent looked at who else is on there, I just posted my gamertag.

Shame they can't be excluded from it, or can they? (The new posts list)

Maybe there will be special nights where the people in the club for a game (i.e. CoD2) will can just play the game with each other one night.

Or maybe there could be an award- joined xx amount of 1000 clubs.

sorry to bring up a somewhat old thread, but i must say i like the new layout of the 100 clubs now. any plans on doing the same with arcade games?

Thats pretty cool. How often does it update?

Want to do a link to this site, and if we'll set one up to that?

Football Manager- 0.87% of people completed it, and 2 of them are on here lol ;)

What were we talking about again?

I think the list are good, good recognition and something to shoot for. They'll probably help some peeps keep going in those games that they may want to move from. If someone in particular doesn't care about the threads then they can ignore them. If they don't think some of the threads are deserving of server space then they can go ahead and not click on them. Problem solved.

EDIT: I was actually through the threads to find if anyone had asked about making a 200 club since most of those require skill to max out. I'm voting for it, I'd want my Geometry Wars 200 shown (working on that now).

The current database is updated roughly every 7 days, but if you view your profile (http://www.my360stats.com/gs/MintyMarlFox/)it'll update it roughly every 24 hours. (although we can only grab details on the last 16 games you've played)

I've already included a banner link to this site as I'm a huge fan, so a return link would be appreciated.

Rather than maintaining 100% lists in the forums here, how about a sticky topic that simply includes a link to each game's 100% list on my site ?

Minty
08-17-2006, 06:04 AM
We'll still keep the lists on the sites, as they are recognition for achievements of site members rather than just every xbox live player. We will put a link on this site when we get the opportunity- lot of styuff going on at the moment :D
