I wish I could say I never game like this, but sometimes I do.
Guild Wars 2 had an achievement for instigating various stages of unnecessary murder against helpless, neutral animals. You know, bunny rabbits, birds, flies, rats, etc. I had an engineer ability which electrocuted groups and left them twitching before keeling over. I was doing it just to be evil for its own wholesome sake, but once I realized there was an achievement for 100, 1000, etc, I knew I had a new mission in life.
I did something like this! In Crystalis, I leveled up to 10 out of a maximum of 16 against the first creature you can fight…
Anyone who’s decided to tangle with the Grox in Spore knows this feeling. They’re just so easy to kill, yet their numbers are absurdly high. After a while, it’s just reflex to fly to the nearest Grox colony and terraform them into oblivion.
