Definitely try it out. I don't think I completed it for the first time until something like 2004-5 and still then it was an amazing enjoyable game. I played a bit of the Master Quest on GC recently and it still holds up quite well.

I'm over 120,000 now and have just stopped caring. I average like 750/game and have 50+ 1000s (not easy ones either), but I just don't have the same drive I once did. I'd say screw it just keep on truckin'.

Cheers man :) That's what most people have said so I guess that's my answer haha.

I don't think you should worry so much about your completion ratio. There was a time I obsessed a little about my ranking in Team Fortress 2. It was fun for a while, but soon I found it took the fun out of the game, especially since I had to play constantly just to keep my rank up. I started enjoying the game a lot more after I learned to let go. Still, it's up to you.
That's true. I find that I'm replaying games just for achievements instead of replaying them for their replay value. Unlike the days of my PS2 and Gamecube where I would replay games so many times without unlocking anything else.

It leaves me with a summer of essentially going through my backlog of achievements.

That's the spirit, think of it as a summer project.

The Darkness and Tomb Raider: Legend are dirt cheap, and are probably the easiest or most 'direct' games to fill out those achievements easily. 
It seems you don't have a lot of games that fall under the category of "easy S-Ranks", but I can easily see your completion level raised fairly quickly. Make Devil May Cry 4 the last game you attempt on that list. I beat that game multiple times and walked away with a measly 200/1000.

Since I have the exams I'm gonna have to leave getting achievements for a bit. The Darkness I have borrowed off a friend so will go through that soon and I hear it's quite a good game. Tomb Raider I know longer have but I can easily borrow it again. I'm going to replay Mass Effect so I can go through as a Biotic and get those achievements and also within a couple of games I could S-rank Madden 09. Thinking about it now, it could be fun and it's always nice to aim for something. 
 
I really like the achievements system on this website. It gives it a nice edge especially with the 'rare' achievements. I also like the comment feature for them, it gives it potential for a guide to be written for each achievement. Cheers for the tips though mate.

I would do it. You can get that score back pretty fast if you just commit to your games.

The first one to have a counter-argument haha. That's what I thought too but I'm thinking about the time I put into COD and other games like that. I think I'm gonna keep my account and just work on it when my final exams are over. It leaves me with a summer of essentially going through my backlog of achievements.

I haven't rented a game in about 8 years. I think it's because my local game rental store closed down and I couldn't be bothered making the effort to go further into town to rent a game. I ended up realising (just as the 360 came out) that I could buy PS2 games cheaper than it cost to rent them and that kept me satisfied. Nowadays, I can just go to my game store and buy games for a fiver or less so if I'm feeling really cheap I can still buy a new game.

@xpxTomxqx: No-one else cares about your games to score ratio, why should you? It's not like all those games were to hard for you, you just have just borrowed a lot of games and not had enough time to complete everything. I have a few five point achievements in some games because I played them one time and it used to bother me, but now I'm like fuck it, I don't even think about gamerscore until I finish a game and then if I liked the game or the points are easy I will get the rest.
That is a good argument haha. I like seeing other people's gamerscore but then again I never look at their ratio, just to compare my games to theirs I guess. When you look on it from a rational viewpoint you see that I'm actually being a bit irrational. However, that 5 points I have from Gameroom still pisses me off!

I don't really understand your reasoning behind it all but why do you have to start a new account, just finish the game on the current one?

I would do but a lot of the games I have played I no longer own :(

Rentals?

That may be a good shout. I'm just finishing my final exams at my sixth form college but afterwards I may try and get a job back the games store I used to work at. If I can get one, then this will be a dillemma solved. I think the argument saying that I have spent so much time on this account justifies itself because I wouldn't want all that time to be wasted and not only that, I'll never be able to survive 500,000 on Geometry Wars ever again haha!

I suppose if gamerscore means that much to you but I really don't see a problem. Personally I've never thought about my "games to score ratio".
True say, one of my counter arguments is the amount of time I have put into my current account. I guess I just want to have a nice percentage of games complete and it saddens me to see that I haven't got it :( Just means I'll have to play more I guess haha!
