The 20,000 point GamerScore Challenge. Many websites like to follow the progress of gamers and the most common way of doing so is by monitoring the number of GamerScore (GS) points (gained by unlocking achievements) a player has.

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.

LAST UPDATE - gr13ve - 8 games - 695 points

Lets see how we get on...

Well, it was quite a popular thing, I don't see why something similar couldn't be repeated in the new year :)

Well done. I've almost reached 27,000 total so I've had a pretty good run since the deadline expired. I'd like to be around 50,000 at the end of 2011 but that is perhaps optimistic.

Just thought I'd post an update - have achieved my score! Albeit 3 months late. Still 20,000 points in a year isn't too shabby.

I found the GSC was a great way to motivate me to attempt unlocking awards that I may otherwise have not bothered with.

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 :)

Wish my GS was on average with my friends :( I'm quite missing the challenge already, made me want to play the games I get through on rental. Now if I don't like the first level it gets sent back the same day I got it.

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!

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!

Well I failed that didn't I?!

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.
