The NeoGAF Achievements Thread

We all love achievements in video games, and now achievements are coming to your favorite video game forum! We've hidden a bunch of fun achievements you can earn on NeoGAF just by doing everyday things like posting, creating threads, or setting an avatar. When you do one of these things, you'll get a notification letting you know you've earned an achievement!

There are a few changes to member's profile pages:



  • The first and most apparent thing is that you'll now have a "Points" indicator on several places throughout the site, as well as on member's profiles. Each achievement has a set number of points assigned to it based on how difficult it is to achieve.
  • Every member profile has been updated with an "Achievements" tab, where you can see which achievements that member has earned.
  • Site members (sorry Neos!) will have an icon next to their name on their member page where they can showcase their favorite achievement. Click it to select which one you'd like to feature on your own profile.
We already have a lot of internal feedback and some big plans on how to improve on this further, but we would love to hear your feedback as well as your ideas for new site achievements.

I hope everyone enjoys this new feature!

I log in to 44 notifications and was wondering what the hell I posted that made it rain...and then saw I’m showered in awards for existing forever.

So yay for existence and participation!

Well done guys. Pretty slick for a new feature release.

Please like this post. I want all the achievements....all of them!

I logged back into and I had 35 notifications

Either I said something really good and quoatable? -unlikely

Or some error with GAF.

Turned out the notifications were all achievements to do with GAF posts and years of services.

I either wasn’t paying attention to the stickies or haven’t read the notices but how long was this planned for ?

I almost shat myself. 12 notifications. What did I do? I was not THAT drunk last night. Will a twitter hate-mob hunt me down now? :)

EDIT: Cool idea though. I like it (once I changed pants)

530 points... Is that high?

Also, i never though i had made 200 threads.

I also got banned a few times pre-NuGaf.. With a perma ban warning in the last one. No achievement for that eh?

We need an achievement for successfully renting and returning a hamster without getting caught by the police, in a country where such activity is illegal and punishable by death by snoo snoo.

there should be rewards for high points to showcase your contribution to the site

for example if you have 500 points you get a colored frame on your profile picture or a star\symbol next to your name

I was already worried why I had 16 new notifications, but luckily they were just achievements. I feel safe now.
Great idea, but all I ever want to "achieve" is an unique title underneath my username =)
