|Achievement-skepticism is not a Nintendo-exclusive philosophy. Plenty of other people have wondered what the worth of Achievements is, how they affect the way we play games that contain them and, ultimately whether they are good or bad for games and gaming.|
I didn't really get into achievements until I started playing StarCraft II. After reading this, though, I can see how it changed the way I played that game.
