It's a kind of a waste having a game on Steam and not taking advantage of steamworks features, and achievements do increase sales of a game despise what achievement detractors may say.


But you soulnd't base your purchase solely on achievements.

This game came out in 2007.

I'm sure the developers really care about what you think 5 years later.

And if you're buying games just for the purpose of "enhancing your fake virtual pointless score" then you shouldn't be gaming to begin with.

It's not necessarily about your fake virtual pointless score. For a lot of people achievements are about wanting those specific additional tasks. People like ticking off boxes on a to-do list, and having that additional list of things to do saves people from having to think about the game or engage with it on a personal level while still extending their playtime.

Nothing to see here: Xbawks generation basing a game purchase on achievements rather than the quality of the game itself.
