If you'd like to broaden your perspective yet more, you'd see that the creativity and originality we all celebrate in most modern games has little or nothing to do with arbitrary stat-wanking.
Achievements feel like a mandatory millstone around developer's necks at times. What they represent often have little to do with what makes gaming great. In fact, it's a weird throw back to anachronistic high-score chasing that came about because games were limited entirely by their tight technological boundaries.
Move on people, play the games and ditch the spreadsheets.
