(This is a discussion I previously carried out in my home forums . People didn't want achievements there)
What are achievements? An achievement is a meta-goal defined outside a game's parameters. In other words the pop ups that come out when you've done something difficult or different.


Why should a game have achievements? A games achievements encourage the player to do stuff apart from the main quest or motivates the player to beat his personal best. This increases the time that each player spends in playing the game. Not only that a leaderboard would be started to give gamers a competitive atmosphere and motivates them to come out at the top. Over evolution the consoles with achievements produced pro gamers just as a school with ranking system produces good students. Now, Both of Nintendo's rivals have achievements for their consoles while Nintendo hasn't even given it a second thought. This is a typical Nintendo "We don't give what fans want the fans would want what we give" attitude.

Achievements in Zelda can be like
Human Batreaux- collect all Gratitude crystals and show them to Batreaux

Hestu's Poop- collect all Korok seeds.

Hunter- Defeat a Lynel (This achievements will encourage people to fight a Lynel rather than using stealth or running away)

Unless the game is very linear and all trophies get unlocked as you go from start to finish, I will typically never complete all of a game's achievements. I simply find that many achievements in games want me to do things that I don't want to do, therefore I don't do them. Thus, I'm rather indifferent, they don't influence the way I play games at all.
