If you play video games you are more than likely familiar with the achievement concept. An achievement is a certain set of requirements that a developer has set in place, that when all conditions are met you receive a reward. In many games these come in the form of special items, powers, or titles (like Justin ‘of the Awesome!‘).
For me, as with many gamers, sometimes you just need another task to keep you interested. Let’s take for example World of Warcraft, another wildly popular Blizzard title. There is so much to do from leveling characters, daily quests, raiding, crafting, farming materials, collecting pets and mounts, and more. Doing these things can get redundant and boring which leads you to step back for a while and focus on something else. Achievements can offer that escape.
It’s exciting to see that the Hearthstone team is making this a priority as well. They already have a few achievements built in and I am sure there are going to be plenty more by the time this game is officially released. My current favorites would have to be ‘Arrrrrr!!!‘ and ‘Chicken Dinner.’
