In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

I love A&T Whores
Posted on Friday, August 14 2009 @ 11:47:46 Eastern

Commenting on MattAY's achievement whore winning vox pop, I came to with a hypothesis stating "Achievement and Trophy Whores" can actually be a great idea. Yes, yes I know I could have posted this as comment in MattAY's blog but I felt this allows me to express myself with more details and information.

So, knowing the fact you must not use cheats to receive these achievements and trophies are great way to express your earnings and to express that you have accomplish something without cheating. That makes your self esteem rise. Earning achievements and trophies is another way of saying, "What!? You upset I was able to get this achievement/trophy and you weren't"

Maybe one day achievement/trophy whores can help out one another...Wait! What am I saying? They already do? Of course they do, I'm not so familiar with trophy whores but I know for a fact achievement whores would want to play games Like Halo 3, Gears of War 2, CoD4: Modern Warfare etc. so they can go and collect multi-playing achievements with other players. Some might be achievement whores, or some just might be some player in the middle some achievement whores quest to received that achievement. Nonetheless, achievement/trophies whores are inbound.

I can share with you read that I'm in fact NO achievement/trophy whore (can't be a trophy whore I don't own a PS3), but I can tell you that I play video games because it relaxes myself from the stressful tensions I have to deal with everyday. Achievement/Trophy Whores In my own opinion are awesome and sometimes relevant to communicate with. The only negative thought I have about achievement/trophy whores is exactly what MattAY mentioned "One friend said they annoy him, because people with higher scores think they're better at games than everyone else" These players in my thoughts are just trying to prove that they can earn goals faster than people, I feel as if they're trying to show off what they earn, their skills at video games in my opinion might not be better than other players. I know for a fact earning achievements/trophies does not make you higher on rank listings (unless some achievements/trophies want you to get 100 wins or so)

So for my conclusion of this irrelevant blog, achievement/trophy whores are everywhere. You got to love them, you got to hate them...but most importantly....you must live with them "BOO YAH!!"
