The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Gamer Reaches 1 Million Gamerscore: Epic or Pitiful?

Posted on Thursday, March 13 @ 10:50:47 PST by

1 MILLION GAMERSCORE POINTS!!! You didn't ask for it, but it's finally been accomplished.

Otherwise known as his Xbox panhandle Stallion83, Raymond Cox (interesting that we have Cox and Stallion in the same sentence here) has broken his prior Guinness World Record of 511,342G with his new score of over 1,000,000G.

He achieved this milestone during a live four-hour broadcast via Xbox One, leaving Titanfall for the game to reach the seven-digit threshold. According to a statement to Eurogamer, he spent "eight years, three months, I don't know how many days" chasing this goal.

So of course, while this certainly an achievement (in its own right) deserving of a hearty congratulations, is this also a superficial, "what a waste of time" accomplishment? I mean, Microsoft introduced Gamerscore more for marketing that anything else. (And I guess, wow, did that marketing work.)

If you really want to talk about skill in gaming, it's about speedruns, competitive gaming, leaderboards (to an extent), etc. Getting a high GamerScore means pouring through games extremely quickly and owning multiple consoles from different regions; that said, doing so for eight years straight is a commitment that lasts longer than most marriages.
