Ok so when I first started playing the 360 I thought the whole idea of achievements was downright stupid. Now I've realized its absolutely amazing and it is the motivation to continue playing a game. For instance after beating a game I usually would just tuck it away and never see it again but now the achievements give me motivation to go back and find/beat everything and continue playing. It might sound odd but its true. In comparison, the wii counts hours. This doesn't seem to have the same effect on me because it doesn't motivate me to finish parts of the game. anyway, just thought I'd ramble for a moment and see if anyone else thought the same.
