Why? Achievements are a completely useless distraction that detracts from the gameplay experience. I wish achievements were not included in any game I play. It's not school, I do not need a golden star to show my friends I managed to complete the game. That makes it a chore.
Once again the same discussion. Why can't we just accept that some people like what others dislike? So if you dislike achievements, which is off course perfectly fine while also purely subjective, in most cases it is not a problem at all since you won't see them if you have turned them off in Galaxy (not possible with ingame achievements but these aren't the achievements Ice_Mage wants). However if they aren't included at all there is not even the option for people lile Ice_Mage to turn them on. So let them include them and people who dislike them won't use them. I really fail to see the problem here. This way both partys can be happy which for that reason imo makes it the best way.
Because simply accepting others statements does not make you any wiser? Which is why I asked why he wants them.
It's really strange to berate someone for asking a question and stating their opinion, and then go on to argue and state your own opinion on the matter, while complaining that the discussion is old. If you have had this discussion many times before, why do you participate in it? I have never had it, and I fail to see the point of achievements. And like you yourself stated, some games do have in-game achievements, something which I think is really damaging to the overall gaming experience.
