I'm not interested in achievements... at least, not the ones put in a pretty list set by the game developer.
Achievements to me are reaching goals that I set for myself, not goals that others set for me. I'm not interested in testing my ability to follow directions...
I'm not interested in being "the first to reach.... " or "the most popular" or "highest ranked" blah blah blah... these are things that don't even really belong in this genre as far as I'm concerned.
I'm not interested in pushing through content to reach "the end" asap so I can repeat the "end" over and over for gear or high score or anything of that nature.
What games in this genre offer a good time and enjoyable gameplay that isn't designed to only reward me for pushing to be hardcore? Games that don't punish me for CHOOSING to just run around adventuring, or looking for other players to help/join or make friends? Roleplay? Exploration? Building? Crafting that matters?
At his point in life, I just want to go back to using videogames as a fun and/or exciting way to waste a few hours... I don't need another job, I don't need more stress, and I damn sure don't need a videogame as a basis to prove my worth to people I don't even know.
