For me they are an extension of swapping Panini football cards/stickers back in the dark (wonderful) 80's. Boys love to collect (action figures etc )
What is it with achievements? I'm doing it right now, slowly trying to get my first re up on gears 3. I have no idea why as I have plenty of other games to play. Currently 88.
I have always got the impression they are aimed at dudes more than gals, but obviously some like them.
I don't chase them except on games I have a lot of love for, otherwise if I complete a/any game with only 200 odd I can live with that.
Not sure who decided to implement them into Gaming, but he/she is one smart cookie.
I don't have anywhere near the same passion for Trophies.
@barbour, I like that
