If you've ever suspected that achievements and gamerscore are ultimately pointless, think again, as Shift 2: Unleashed's Design Lead, Andy Tudor has revealed that he wouldn't employ anyone "with less than 20,000 gamerscore" to work at developer Slightly Mad Studios.

"It's absolutely critical," Tudor told, pertaining more to games developers having a passion for video games, rather than simply having an inflated gamerscore. " shouldn't even be a conscious decision as a games designer," Tudor continued. "You should naturally have a passion and love for both playing games (I wouldn't hire anyone with less than 20,000 Xbox gamerscore), dissecting and analysing them, and being pro-active and investigative about the competition."

So, if you ever wanted to work for Shift 2: Unleashed developer Slightly Mad Studios, you'd better keep playing games and bagging those achievements. Should gamerscore really be used as a measurement of a gamer's passion though? "Whilst watching movies doesn't necessarily make you a good director (Tarantino excepted), it gives you an encyclopaedia of knowledge of past experience, trends, expectations, and predictions," Tudor noted.

Well, we're covered with our employable gamerscore level. Are you?
