A dedicated Xbox gamer has become the first person to get a seven-figure Gamerscore. Achievement hunter Raymond "Stallion83" Cox crossed the 1 million mark by playing Titanfall. Aptly, he hit the magic number by earning the game's "I liked a Challenge" achievement.

"Eight years, three months, I don't know how many days," Cox said on a Twitch stream (via Eurogamer. "I can't explain how much I've put into this."

Cox was the first person to reach the 500,000 milestone in 2010. Let's see if he has the will to reach 2 million.

      Eight years, but I wonder what his /played time is actually. I'm sure it's significant.

        Closest you can probably get is this:

        Stallion83 has won 43,598 Achievements and 93 Challenges in 1595 games

        Since he's got WP and Windows titles on there as well, and stackable titles, I'm not sure you could find an average time... but if you just assumed it took him about 6 hours in each game that's about 9,570 hours...

          Not to mention if you picked games based on score, some are more liberal with points than others. Some will dole out 10-100 pts just for starting the game and playing a few minutes. When gamertags first launched I remember the crew at work talked about selecting games just based on what points it would award.

          I can't remember which game it was, but it left like every time I did something I got an achievement.

            King Kong gave you 100% achievements just for finishing the game. Each chapter completion gave you another achievement, so if you finished the game, you got 100%. It actually wasn't a bad game, but very linear.

              Fight Night 3 gave achievements all along beating the campaign. Once you finished the campaign once, you had 100%.

        Multiple region coded consoles and foreign game releases is part of it but those top guys have almost made gamerscore a full time job. I would get so burned out before even coming close to that; statistically I only have obtained around 40% of achievements in the games I've played.

          Yea, I got burned out on chasing gamerscore sometime last year and really only play games I want to now, and rarely go after specific achievements.

            Gamerscore by Year
            2006: 4,647
            2007: 17,908 (+13,261)
            2008: 35,531 (+17,623)
            2009: 69,121 (+33,590)
            2010: 101,171 (+32,050)
            2011: 124,960 (+23,789)
            2012: 145,403 (+20,443)
            2013: 156,630 (+11,227)
            2014: 159,535 (+2,905)*

            Why would you even start chasing gamerscore in the first place?

              I don't know, I got addicted to getting that number higher than anyone else on the shack, then I got into chasing down Gerstmann's score...

              *shrug* I can't give you a good explanation, but there are people who do play just to make that number go up. I used to be one of them.

        When I worked at a gamestop there were a few people who regularly came in to scour the 360 section for games that were easy to 100%. Apparently movie tie-in games were usually good for this. There was a copy of Green Lantern that came and went regularly because of this.

        Personally, I don't get it.

          Yea, but once you get past about 30 or 40 of those quick 1-2 hour 1,000G games it gets hard to increase your score by large amounts regularly.

          This is the saddest thing I've ever heard.
