I've finally passed 50,000 Gamerscore on the Xbox 360. (I'm at 50,074, to be precise.) It rolled over On Sunday as I was playing Just Cause 2, a game I'm not in love with but seem unable to stop playing. (Ninety hours and counting!)
Having a score of 50k most likely means that I play far too many games. I only started acquiring Gamerscore in 2009, which means I average about 10,000 Gamerscore per year. Is that a lot? Back in 2011, the average gamer had better than 11,000. I can't find a more recent count, but it's probably gone up significantly since then. There is at least one 1,000,000 Gamerscore gamer now, and he alone has to be pulling the average up a bit.
I'm not going to say that I never play games with the intention of increasing my Gamerscore, but knowing that I can score some Gamerpoints has certainly kept me interested in some titles long after the fun had expired. Not Just Cause 2, though. I don't know what's up with that game. Helping the CIA start a civil war in Indonesia never gets old.
