I hate myself that a number can effectively dictate how much I play a game. How can I find myself going from enjoying playing a game to hating it, just in pursuit of a few percentage points? It's totally ridiculous that my average game completion rate matters to me, especially as it's not mandatory on your steam profile, but sadly, (and it's a sickness), it does....In fact it even dictates how much I want to own a game on Steam. For instance I saw Ryse was available for free on GameSessions and figured as a fan of classical civilisations it was worth a go, maybe even pick up the game on Steam if I enjoyed the start....73 achievements with gated multiplayer ones? Yep, GameSessions DRM for a one time experience is fine...

I really wish...really, really, really....that you could turn these things off!

Completed Darksiders 2 the other night. That was quite the grind. Definitely my least favorite of the series, but still a fun time.

My Rarest Achievements showcase on Steam is also dominated by Rise of the Tomb Raider achievements, which I found quite strange.

100%'d Witcher 2...feels good! I still really wish Steam would let you opt out though.

(...and the Backlog Assassin's website has made me angry about the sheer number of MP achievements in FEAR 3)

Yeah honestly multiplayer achievements are the worst, I avoid them whenever possible.



The rarest is a 0.20% achievement from Pillars of Eternity where you had to go through the entire game with 10 or fewer rests I think. It wasn't that difficult when I went for it, but that game had a lot of (unnecessary) balance changes so I'm not sure how it stacks up now. The pastel ones are from Gone Home and are really easy, it's just that people haven't gone back to the game since the achievements were added. The rest are from Gauntlet, and they're just grinding enemies, so also not difficult, just time consuming. I'd say the game I'm most proud of 100%ing is Super Hexagon lol. I apparently have 348 achievement games in total, so I'm about 30% done I guess.

Finally made it up to 40% achievement completion on Steam, and the one I did it with was the Puff-Puff achievement in Dragon Quest XI.

Still working on completing DQXI. I've got 6 achievements left so hoping to get it done this week.
