I very much enjoy them. Most retro gamers i have talked to do not.

At least Solid Snake likes them! https://youtu.be/SS4yV7BxvrY :)

Never thought I'd discover something less interesting than "speedrunning" but this may be it.

What about speedrunning achievements? :D

How did you feel about points back in the day? In the arcades my 3 letter name was UZI. Used to love seeing it on a machine (As rare as it was for me to stay in the top, lol)

I've been enjoying Crusader of Centy for the last couple gaming sessions. I don't think I would have given this game a fair chance without achievements. Cool game :D

Every time i talk to anyone involved in MiSTer I mention it. Hopefully it will get added soon :D

I like them. I don't seek out the achievements, but when one shows up it makes me smile. It's also kinda cool to go to the achievements site and use it as a tracker of the games I've been playing and bouncing between. Overall I enjoy it and hope people continue to put achievements into the system.
