Achievements: The Souvenirs of Experiences

    VS  

While combing over my ever-growing achievement list for the games I play, it occurred to me: souvenirs exist to remember an experience and game achievements aren't much different.

They both have the ability to say, "I was here and I did this".

Both can be used as a conduit to remember an experience, whether it be a trial or a celebration.

Sure some achievements are garbage and easily obtained, but so are refrigerator magnets... Others are very difficult if not impossible for some. I'd say that some of the Killing Floor achievements are akin to taking a picture from the top of some very high mountains.

Next time you see someone's gamer score or Steam level, step back for a moment and appreciate the experiences they must have had.

Which achievement/souvenir are you most proud of?

Mine:
