Avatar: The Burning Achievements

I'm a little bit torn. For my birthday I was given the game Avatar: The Burning Earth, because people know I'm a big fan of the cartoon and a big fan of those video games as well. What they didn't know, is that this game is famous for having the cheapest and most broken 1000 points of gamerscore out there. The video has been around for a while. I'm more than a little bit addicted to getting those points, but this one just feels wrong.
 
Of course, I also have most of the achievements from that Doritos game, but I justified that to myself by it being an okay little game. I'd have totally paid a quarter to play that one back when there still were arcades. Sure, I bought a big bag of Doritos after playing it, but that's because I like chips. That had nothing to do with spending an hour playing a fatty snack themed game, right? Maybe?
 
If you subscribe to the fighting game theory that nothing is cheap, then I guess it's clear what to do. The points inflation from this game has already occurred, I'm just returning my score to its baseline. That's what I'll tell myself, but I have to admit that I already don't really believe it. They're cheap, nearly unearned points. I should feel bad about it.
 
But hey, a third S-Rank! Sweet!
