Provocative title? Yes, I think I am the only player in the world that has managed to 'complete' this game. I did not make this thread to brag though, I wanted to find out a few things actually.
Recently some of you may recall some of my posting on this board about the platinum awards, and that I completed all 89 of them. In the same thread I also indicated that I had one of my races verified by R*. Some time back I indicated on this board I had completed all my PSN trophies. So basically at this moment, I have completed every single achievement thrown into the game.
I'm going to disregard the platforms this game has been hosted on and mainly concentrated on online gameplay as it's the same for both Xbox and PS3.
There are 89 platinum awards in this game and there are 30 rewards in this game mainly linked to the platinum awards. Finish certain platinum awards and gain tattoos (woohoo, an astonishing reward ). But there is one award that is a little bit difficult to get especially when it's mainly out of your control and that is the R* T-shirt. Only gained if you have your race or deathmatch verified. At this point, there are only 40 verified user-generated content in this game.
I've gone through all 39 other players and none have completed all the platinum awards. Which makes me the first to complete all achievements in this game.
The reason why I actually posted this thread is because not many players bother with achievements at all. They have their reasons and I am not going to rebuke that, but think of it this way. Since the game was released, we never had anything to work towards. Players participated in glitching, while other players were handed large amounts of cash. So, what do you work towards in a game that is this bugged? Most players have every single item purchasable anyway which doesn't give any sort of feeling towards achieving anything.
You reading this thread probably have the most expensive apartment to your liking, you have 10 cars fully upgraded, you have every single pegasus vehicle, you have all clothing items, all masks, all guns and their upgrades. Well, everyone else does too. Woop for you for accomplishing that!
I wanted to aim for something different. I'm not much of a gamer in my later years, so if I do participate in a game - I'd be giving my all into it. Which I've done with GTA V. I still play storymode ffs, I'm still doing missions to make them gold, I'm still doing all those random events... I'm a hopeless case of addiction!
Recognition given amongst the community to those players who have grinded hours and hours to gain a simple title and simple graphics next to the name in the form of awards and achievements.
Trolls may now post gifs and vids about winning the game We all know the game...
