I put this challenge to you. My individual goal (HM) is to increase my GS by 20,000 points by September 1st 2010. As this seemed a popular idea, many freeola users have jumped in with their own personal challenges.
If you are interested in joining the challenge, just post your target score and how many points you are away (or just a target amount), along with your Gamertag and I'll put you on the board below.
Keep posting updates when you unlock achievements. The best way (and most manageable) would be to post the game title and the number of points achieved from the start date of your target. For instance: if I had a Viva Pinata and unlocked 600 points, I would post: "Viva Pinata - 600 points".. Points gained from before the target date do not count.

I'm in favour of a new challenge - or maybe just a gamerscore update thread where we all start from a particular date.
I know I didn't come near to achieving my target, but it was still fun :)
> I failed too! But still, it was fun gaming for points again and
> at least my score is a bit more respectable amongst my friends
> list now!
Lets be honest, I drag your friends list gamerscore average down quite abit :P
I think my target next year will have to be much lower as I won't have easy access to my xbox...but I'll be up for some challenge or another!
Well done to everybody that took part!
hah. This year has been the worst so far for me getting time to play games. As it is my time is now split between Wii, PS3, 360 and iPhone with the latter taking up probably 70% of my gaming time now due to commitments to keeping the site going.
