Today's gamers are too spoiled with achievements, auto-saves, etc. I spend my hard earned money on games that interest me and not cuz the achievements are too hard or time consuming. If the achievements are worthwhile then it's a bonus.
If you want to play just for achievements than your not a true gamer. Go play something shitty and easy like King Kong or Avatar.
If you're a score whore annoying, pain in the arse achievements can ruin an otherwise perfectly decent game.

For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright
Who art as black as hell, as dark as night.
Stand still and consider the wondrous works of Valentino Rossi.
