Everybody knows what it is. If you don't, you should.
I've always been one; the biggest one I've ever known in real life.
(Ever since I got a job though... I've been falling behind on my achievement whorablities)

Half the people I talk to think it's disgusting.
Half the people I talk to think it's impressive.

So how does everyone feel about achievement whoring?! Very Happy

I am really undecided. My reasons?

A) I hate the idea that for others to think that you are good at a game you have to spend hours in getting stupid little special achievements just to increase your GS ( gamers score).

B) I do it and I really enjoy wasting hours just trying to do really random crap and not really worrying about the story line of the game, it gives more of a sense of freedom to a game when you are playing it if you can stop and say ( in the case of borderlands) hey instead of going to fight yet another mob of skag or raging psychos, I am going to screw around for a while and get a full 5 seconds of "hang time" in order to get the "Orbit achieved" achievement.
