Like many, I used to feel compelled to unlock as many achievements as I could. Having the largest gamerscore on xbox live always meant bragging rights among my friends (thankfully I never got so desperate that I bought games just for the achievements, unlike some others I know…). However, for the first half of last year I spent very little time playing games and the only game I did play during that stretch was xenoblade chronicles. Apparently this cured me of my mild achievement addiction because the only game I have played since then (still not playing very much) is demon souls and I have yet to feel compelled to do something in the game just to unlock an achievement.If prompted to identify the reason for this change I would have to say that I simply realized I get more enjoyment out of playing games when I play the way I want to as opposed to playing in a manner that will unlock an achievement. That and I always hated when I spoiled part of the story by looking up the achievements or how to unlock them ahead of time - something I did quite often because I wanted to unlock as many as possible in one playthrough since it is quite uncommon for me to complete multiple playthroughs (metroid prime, majora’s mask, & portal 1 and 2 are the only ones that come to mind right now).
