Achievement Slang

I got a writeup on another site but I like the page enough to share over here too.

Seeing how the community is over here, the slang for achievements is thrown around alot. But how does that make you think about the people who use it on a regular basis?

I can understand why people come up with pet names, but I just won't use it myself. I guess the comic is a good representation of how I feel about it.

Also, if you call achievements something else that no one else does, I'd be curious as to what it would be.

I generally only say achievements. There are exceptions when me and a few of my good xbox live friends are joking around. One that me and my one friend really like to jokingly use is Chevy Cheevies.

It legitimately makes me cringe when people say or type cheevo, cheese mints or anything of the sort.

That comic was great though.

I've mentioned before that I see the term "cheevo" as a sign of laziness and poor education. It doesn't take that long to write or the word "achievement," so why would you need to shorten it? Plus, everyone knows what the term "achievement" means, which is not true of "cheevo."

Anyway, I occasionally refer to achievements as "my source of pavlovian arousal," but I rarely shorten the term.

I almost always say "achievements". Sometimes I say "achievables" as a joke because of the Red vs. Blue PSA about achievements.

"My Spa" for short.

I stick with "achievement", but I try to avoid saying "achievement". "Are we going to finish multiplayer?" or "Did you 100% ________, yet?" are some of my preferred alternatives.

I'm guilty of "cheevo or cheevos" every once in awhile. I'd say 90% of the time I do use "achievement" or the specific name of the achievement.

Maybe I'll write a cheevo guide called "Ryot Control's Ultimate Cheevo Guide" and detail all of your cheevos.

I call them cheevos also. I don't see anything wrong with giving it a nickname. Well at least people know what I mean when I say cheevos.

I'm guilty of cheese mints with my inner circle. Cheese Mints, Mad Jelly, and other things. But sometimes people really do make an impression when it's their go to term like Doug said. Wish I can say I was better than that, but people cen't help themselves.

I can deal with mispelling, after all english isn't the primary language everywhere. At least they tried. The slang really isn't even all that bad. But I guess the people who use it really show their personality when they beat it all up over and over follow it up with other made up words.

Like achieveables. Dammit Yunder, just typing that out just about gave me an angry twitch!

If you make a guide titled that, I'll be torn between flattered and a sad panda.

I agree. I say "bleep bloop" when I'm expecting one to unlock but cheevo and whatnot sounds freaking retarded.

Ya know. #Swag420YOLO69MURK

I only ever use cheevos when I'm text chatting on live because I don't have a chatpad and I'm to lazy to type out achievement.

Otherwise I always say achievement.

When speaking I only say "achievements", however I will type out "cheevo" sometimes as it is shorter.

Haha, I remember the first time someone messaged me on LIVE and asked if I needed "cheevo" help. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out what the hell I was being asked. Personally, I send messages through xbox.com for the ease of using my keyboard, so I don't use achievement slang.

I always call them achievements. When I see posts and people are calling them cheevos, chives, etc. I just stop reading. Furthermore, I won't contact people from the Achievement Trading Threads that use such terms.

Achievements PSA - YouTube
SO MANY ACHIEVABLES

Yeah, when I'm being goofy I'll sometimes say this. Especially when I have "x for XXG" pop up.

I say "bleep bloop" in reaction to getting things done or stuff happening. I've not been called out on it yet.

I use the full word and shorten it in some cases. Which what I find funny about this whole thread is how you people can judge ones knowledge or smarts by how well they can spell or use grammar. I suck at both but I'm a bit smarter then the average bear

The name of the band was chosen by Carl Newman, who has said that he came up with it after watching a Japanese film called The Pornographers.[4] Many writers have assumed that the name was a reference to Jimmy Swaggart's reputed claim that rock and roll was "the new pornography."

It's a joke from the Gunstringer. Buried in the store is a bonus that unlocks an achievement just for buying it. The description is "that sound you are about to hear will either be a source of great shame or Pavlovian arousal. You bought an achievement. I hope you're happy." Or something along those lines. I remember just bursting out laughing when I saw that and have adopted it as a joke when speaking to some of my real life friends who are not as concerned with gamerscore as I am.

Dammit... Now I want to play Gunstringer again...

I've written 'cheevo' a few times myself even though I usually write achievement, even if I didn't I couldn't care less if you write it 'chieves' or 'cheevo' or whatever, I still know what you mean.

That's a tad extreme, it's only a word after all.

I just call them achievements. But I have referred to them as bleep-bloops, generally just imitating the sound.
