View Full Version : Odd number achievements

09-09-2008, 06:44 AM
Does anyone else really hate odd number achievements? I was just wondering cause I can not stand having my gs be something like 23,256 it just really irks me hard. Is that just my OCD kicking in, or are there others out there that share my hatred.

Yeah i hate it too, the only odd ones i got was from Half Life 2, but i got them both and it went back to normal.

But it looks like youve sorted it out now.

Next to "can i remove 0GS games from my list" this has to be one of the most common threads made. I personally like having a completely unique gamerscore so dont mind if its not ending with a 0 or 5.

Don't like it either tbh but thankfully I haven't got any games with 'odd' achievements! Or at least I haven't unlocked any ;)

ermm well i have Half-life and Forza2 they have odd ones on but it never bovvers me really

It was the UMK3 arcade download that sent my GS into a perpetual spiral of 1 and 6. I fixed it at one point, and I'm not sure how it got back to it again. I think I attempted to play Graw again.

I don't really have a problem with odd-number achievements but I do hate the idea of 1250http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif or those handful of games that are still under 1000http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif. Like how Condemned is 970http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif and The Lord of the Rings: TBfME II is 705http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif. Kinda retarded if ya ask me. I do hate the concept of 0http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif achievements though, like it'd be nice if I could at least get 200http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif for finishing Quake II when I do. It's stupid that you get achievements for it but they're all 0http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif.

And with all this hype about whether or not Halo 3 is gonna break the 1250http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif max rule in the future ... It'll piss me off if Halo 3 upgrades to 1750http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif cause first of all, 1750http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif is a stupid f***ing number to stop at. Second, they'll probably just bump it to 2000http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif eventually if they're gonna go to 1750http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif. And third, every other game'll probably follow suit and stick in 80,000 more achievements.

I think the rule should be that EVERY retail game should have no more or less than 1000http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif, every arcade game 200http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif (really I'd like it better if it was 250http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif or something cause that's a quarter of 1000http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif. And ban 0http://live.xbox.com/xweb/xbox/xboxV2/images/G_nav.gif achievements too their stupid.

Don't understand what the problem is. There points. And the 0gs points are really a waste of peoples time. Especially if you hunting for them :)

Alright, so I did not know there have been a lot of threads about this, I was just posting it cause it annoyed me and I thought of it. Though, I do have to say, my hatred for them does not seem to come pair to Lord of Fate and his dislike for 1250 and such.

09-09-2008, 04:10 PM
Yeah, this annoys the crap out of me. I got a 7 gp from Puzzle Fighter and ever since then, I've got a 2 at the end. I want a 5 or a 0, so I've been trying to figure out how to get 3 more.

09-09-2008, 06:13 PM
I am in a very difficult situation, I have Luxor 2 on my card, with 313 on Crash of the Titans, I have Forza 2, and if I try and complete any of them (yeah, right!) then I will have odd points again!! So I wanna rerent Crash of the Titans soon.

09-09-2008, 07:01 PM
Luxor 2 has jiffered my gamerscore. Also Sonic The Hedgehog has some weird numbers, and I'm pretty sure Sonic 2 did as well.

09-09-2008, 08:31 PM
I guess it looks kinda freaky because we're used to seeing scores ending in 0 or 5 but you forget that 5 is an odd number itself ;)

If your score is messed and you want to fix it then just find the game that messed up your score and 1000 or 200 it. Problem solved, you'll be on a 0 or 5 gamerscore by the end as it'll have to give you another "odd" achievement so you can get your 1000 or 200 :)

09-09-2008, 08:52 PM
I had an odd gamerscore for about two weeks because of Civilization Revolution, and it kinda pissed me off because I couldn't find an artifact :P

I got it back though. I like it better at 0 or 5.

09-09-2008, 08:55 PM
YES. I know it's weird, but I actually won't play games with odd number achievements unless I can plot the achievement course to make sure it's either a 5 or a 0. I just looks strange to me. Just a pet peeve I guess.

09-09-2008, 11:46 PM
I played Viking Battle Of Asgard and i got some odd points through that at first i didnt mind but its starting to bug me lol, even having a 5 at the end would bug me i prefer a nice 0 lol.

No offense but you fail extremely bad on this post. 23,256 from my understanding is a even number, and when you say odd numbers you know your talking about 22,225 right? You must of meant you hate every GS number thats not divisible by 5

But to answer the question, Yes i hate these types of achievements. Thankfully most of the games that have these types of achievements are not ones that i'm a faun of, such as summer athletics etc.

On my other tag i did play GRAW and 1-2 other titles with these types of achievements, thankfully i kept myself from earning those specific ones.

Now, i won't not play a game that i find appealing because of this feature, but if i'm just getting a game for points it could play a vital role depending on my mood and the genre of the game :).

By "odd" he doesn't mean like an odd number, it's basically the word you use when talking about a 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 at the end of your Gamerscore.
I hate it too, I got 1 damn point from Forza 2 to make my Gamerscore 66666 and ever since then I've regretted it. I was thinking of renting Summer Athletics to sort it out but it's an easy 1000 and I just couldn't leave it at like 996/1000. It would piss me off bigtime.

09-10-2008, 11:29 AM
I was going to say the same thing about the odd thing.

Like i said I hate the odd numbers at the end but it wont stop me getting the game or the achievements lol.

09-10-2008, 01:30 PM
My current gamerscore is now 16001 :( I hate you (and love you) Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1.

But yeah, this is annoying as hell, Microsoft should make some rules having the achievements be 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and so on.

you thousand the game this isnt an issue if you dont manage to thoudand it, i dont see it as a big deal that it is odd

09-10-2008, 08:42 PM
you thousand the game this isnt an issue if you dont i dont see it as a big deal
Why don't you end on the top of the team, single and universal leaderboards ever on GRAW and see how easy it is without 16 profiles boosting for one....

09-10-2008, 09:09 PM
At first I did but eventually I didn't care. Eventually my gamerscore went back to the last number being either a 5 or a 0. 0 GS achievements are just a waste of time.

09-10-2008, 09:11 PM
havent run into any yet luckily but that definitely would bother me lol arent there other achievements in the game that even it out?

09-10-2008, 09:20 PM
Right, by the end of the decade I wanna have 100'd Crash of the T5tans and F6rza 2, and 200'd Luxor 2 (mainly because of the fact that I need to borrow Crash of the Titans, or re rent it, and the other 2 are loooooooooong, I have to go to school! so I can't do it by the end of the year.)

09-11-2008, 04:05 AM
Does anybody know of any fairly easy to get achievements that are worth 3 or 8 points? Or anything with a 3 or 8 in it (ex. 13 or 18)? I'm trying to get my gamer score back to a 5 or 0 at the end and would love some help getting it there. Any clues?
