Rapidly approaching 100,000 points.

Current Xbox 360 achievement score stands at precisely 99500. I managed to hit exactly 55555 and 77777 and I intend to hit exactly 100,000 as well.
 
I managed the most difficult part earlier today when I used Watchmen on XBLA to even up my score so it no longer ends in a 1 or a 6. Finished the first level without getting hit for 11 and while attempting that I clocked over 100 thrown enemy knockdowns for 8 more. Couldn't have gone much smoother. Thinking ahead, the only other remotely special scores on the horizon are 111,111 and 123,456. I'll think about getting my stupid 1 back when they come within striking distance.
 
I'll probably attempt to get the 100,000th point on video and I may try to have some friends help me get some 4 player guitar game achievement just to make more of an event of it. 4 vocalists on YMCA seems like pretty good video fodder, but that pops at the start of the song, not the end. I'm open to any suggestions. You guys can see the achievements I'm missing on my account Shaunage and I do have every music game and access to basically everything except 4 drum kits.
 
My main problem with hitting it exactly is going to be Mass Effect 2. It's incredible, but I'm 95% sure that there are more than 500 points between me and the end of the game, especially with 200 or more popping as the credits roll. Going to be a little frustrating stopping near the end to collect people, instruments and a video camera.
 
On the plus side, having been within a couple of thousand of him for the last few years I am probably going to beat Jeff to it. He is also dangerously close.

I don't understand what the OCD about how Gamerscores end is all about. I am an achievement whore, but my # is constantly increasing.  
I don't care what it's at, if a cool # happens by accident, that's cool.

@Shaunage: I got to 100,000 exactly with no prior planning. I was planning Dynasty Warriors 5 at the time. :] 
 
But now I don't care so much, mainly because I have to focus on some things, and will probably start playing a Japanese system soon.

Awesome, dude. You're way ahead of me, I just reached 25,000.

Posted by CornontheCobbe

Oh man you guys put me to shame. I only have a measly 10,000 or so.
 
You guys must like getting achievements.

It's as if some of you forget that your gamer score is listed with each of your posts.

I had my xbox for a year and I have around 6000 I think and dont want anymore you can have mine dude if you want.  I wish there was a way to turn them off

I REALLY don't like it when my score doesn't end in a 5 or a 0. I just hate the way it looks. Post again with your vid/pic of 100,000! I am sure it will look glorious. I still have about 65,000 points to go before I reach that.

Wow, you've played a lot of a lot of really bad games. Kudos on that.

If you're playing games trying to earn achievements to get to a certain score, then that's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I got to 69666 and did it NATURALLY!!

Posted by Shaunage

 I'll leave it like that while I sleep off 30 hours of ME2. Looking forward to seeing the end of that.
Someone said I played a 'whole bunch of bad games' to get there. For the most part that's not true but there was a while there where I was Gameflying any old crap (Eragon, Shrek 3 etc). Shrek 3 the game is actually better than the movie, for all that says. And hey, check through that list for Madden, NBA2k, any other traditional sports game. Not one.

I agree most of your games are pretty good.  I only saw a couple that I would say were bad.

And yes, my 100,000th point was for buying Diner Dash. Thought that'd be a pretty funny way to do it.

This is the appropriate forums for this thread. However it is not for your "I have a life, you do not" implying post.
