Wow... now we all need to synchronize friend lists so we can trash talk each other

Done and done. MaxShrek has bounced me down yet another rung on the ladder... the shame, the shame.

1. Nei HD 82,540 (52,238)
2. Sinatar 77,056 (53,571)

Don't think I've seen this before... Nei actually has LESS gamerscore than Sinatar, but is still well out in front TA-wise.

Edit: ahhh... 1.58 TA ratio. Geez, that's pretty high!

Wow, I really expected Sinitar to take the 1st place.

I'm waiting for the rush on this thread to die down, then I'm going to use the leaderboard to populate my friends list with goodjers. Job done.

Same here.

My score is so low because I play most of my games on the PC still. (I played Fallout 3 on the PC and it oddly picked up all of my achievements from it; I guess because Xbox Live and Windows Live talk to each other). I've actually caught myself thinking that I could probably pick up a few games I've finished on the PC (like Bioshock or Mass Effect) and play through them again on the Xbox just to boost my gamerscore, but that would involve giving up my lock on last place.

Why would you want to ruin something as awesome as that?

I've got a 26.72% completion ratio. I don't think I'll be gunning for 1st anytime soon, and you can't make me start playing "gotta catch em all!" with light seeds and agility orbs...

Boy, you thought the other threads were full of enablers, how shall we explain this to our significant others?

"I've joined a gaming leader board and I'm ranked #40 out of 50 - but that's gonna change, baby!" - No, that doesn't make it sound bad at all.

You know, that actually didn't occur to me, even though my friends list is sadly only 10+ strong. Thanks for the idea!

It's given me motivation to clean my Friends list of random folk that I met a year ago playing Catan too, and fill it with people who, you know, I might actually play something with.

I just signed up, http://www.trueachievements.com/Kraint.htm. I'm pleasantly surprised to see that I am not dead last compared to the GWJ list.

Hey, saintFaucet?...tried that PS3 yet? Boy that's a mighty fine system...bet you'd love to try all those awesome PS3 games without all that terrible fuss of worrying about those silly little "points" things unlocking all the time.

Why do I suddenly feel like there's a gun pointed at my back urging me even further forward? heh

SaintFaucet is still my hero from yesterday for the Remember '44 reminder. Don't even mess with him or I'll clear you achievements and lower your trueachievements score. Take that!

I owe him one too, because I grabbed a copy of the game just to get that achievement. I'm gonna start playing it tomorrow.

I play a lot of games and I try to finish everything I play. I just don't generally stick around for the achievements, I get what I get when I play through.

Sent my request.. that site is pretty cool.

..and strangely my wireless plug-in thing decides to go kaput (i think) around the same time frame, thus preventing me from updating the server with my latest achievements....curses!

Leaderboard updated! It is now two pages long. Pheer! Let me know if I missed anybody.

Some of you people have way to much time on your hands...

I play too many videogames, nothing to be ashamed of. At least Nei and Sinatar smash my score, though! Who decides what achievements are worth on that site? I hate to say, the Blazing Angels 1 achievements are not as hard as they should be.. well, once you realize that the achievements unlock when you use God Mode and Infinite Ammo.

I have been on there for a while now (I guess I had forgotten!) and hit the site again this morning after checking GWJ for my morning read. Feel free to add me, fellow GWJers. I'm actually getting to play my 360 again

I signed up. Feel free to friend me up. Last I checked, I think I fall right in the middle of the pack. I probably shouldn't really think about this, though, as every PS3 game I play will haunt me with the utter uselessness of the trophies as a contribution to my score. I'd probably have an additional 1500 GS just from Fallout and Batman if I played them on xbox.

From what I read, their worth is determined by how frequently they are obtained. So having an achievement that very few people have gotten (like, oh say, beating Ninja Gaiden 2 on Master Ninja Mode) will net you more than the Avatar achievements.

This matches up with what I've noticed about some achievements in games I have. VF5 for example, which has some achievements that are just painful grinds to obtain (100% in Quest Mode), and they show very high ratios.

I'm glad to see that I am not completely holding up the rear on the leaderboard! I'm warning you though that when I get my basement completely finished (carpet next week), that some of you had better watch out! I'm coming for you!

Ouch, dropped from 6th place to 15th place.

I am mining Left 4 Dead of all it's cheevy goodness!

The bad thing about getting more people is that I get pushed further towards the back. Maybe we'll just have to liven it up...

"Party in the back!"

I'm on the list now to make 45 of you look better.

I'm in as well.

Some other additions as well... board is over 60. Thankfully I remain planted at 16... but for how long? How long??

Feel free to add me as a friend on XBox if you want to chat.
