it just gives something to play towards to extend the feeling of accomplishment further than OH yay i killed that guy Im a 360 gamer so 144 achievements for my favorite game was amazing but not in cs spirit oh well...its Valves game Im just gonna let them do what they want
I don't like how you earn these achievements. I know that are jail servers disable the achievements which I 100% agree on, but I've been playing some mini game servers as of late and have earned between 10-20 achievements from those alone. Not to mention, quite a few hard ones (frugal beret). I find that totally unfair.
Also I played in one of our events yesterday, which had death-match enabled, and also earned another 2 harder achievements (the unstoppable force, the immovable object). I just think its a bit unfair how you can get around the difficulty of these achievements.
I was always an fbg guy as a lot of you dust_2 regulars would know, so I guess achievements are sort of my escape to handle my withdrawals of its removal. All in all, just saddens me the difficulty and sense of accomplishment of these achievements is blown to smithereens.
