Achievement Hunting - Do You Do It?

I like to play games as is, without really giving much thought to whether or not I've unlocked an achievement. But I've got several friends who avidly collect these virtual 'medals' of sorts, and who swear that this brings out a lot of fun in the games since some of the achievements encourage a wholly different playing style than a person is used to. Does anyone else hunt achievements? Why do you do it? What's the hardest or the most memorable achievement in a game you've ever managed to unlock? Or are you chasing a particular achievement now?

There have been times where I have finished a game and thought that I would try to get all the achievements so I could get the platinum trophy for it as well (I'm on PlayStation 4). But I've never actually gone ahead and finished that task. It just gets too boring if you play a game solely for getting achievements especially since some of them are extremely hard and boring.

I have never, honestly, never been running for the achievements. Simply, they don't mean anything to me, but I know that for some people it is much funnier to play games with collecting achievements. I respect that. But personally, It doesn't mean anything to me.

Personally, it is nice to finish every level with achievements. It adds excitement and it is a rewarding feeling. I love the thought. But this doesn't mean that I won't enjoy a game in times that I won't have it. I am always into the nature of the game and how good it is. I want to be fully entertained and intrigued to keep me going. Somehow games add spice in life.

I am a casual gamer, so I don't usually thought about unlocking any achievement. Though, sometimes, which I think was very rare, whenever I become hooked in a certain game, I tend to play hard until I achieved the highest level but at the end I mostly get tired of it and just move on to another game.

I used to once,e but I gues I grew out of it eventually haha. I used to do it previously to brag haha.
 
I'm not the type of person to run for achievement. I prefer the game as it is, whether I unlock something or not is ok. I've been into some stuff lately and I was not able to take a look if there is an achievement waiting for me in my game.

I am a person who run for achievements. But, I don't always get them. Anyway, it's fun and it gives you the energy to go on and enjoy the game even more.

I try to avoid achievement hunting. But if I am on stream and want to do something related to the recording, I chase it so that I can show other people about it.

Back when the Xbox 360 first came out, I would spend ages completing games for the challenges and hunting for challenges as well, it became a serious hobby for me and was very addictive. Now I don't tend to sit and achievement hunt anymore, I do know that there are people out there though who do achievement hunt and they do also stream it as well. It's something that takes a lot of dedication that is for sure.

I think it's natural to hunt for the achievement. And it can be pretty difficult to let go of that habit. I find it personally hard to get over it for sure.
