What's next for the guy who reached 1 million Gamerscore earlier this year? He's not going into retirement; quite the opposite. Speaking with the Xbox Wire, Raymond "Stallion83" Cox says his next goal is not to get two million Gamerscore, but rather to collect every available Xbox One achievement.

"I'm really loving the Xbox One, so I do have one last super-ambitious goal. I want to, at some point, chase down every last Gamerscore point available on the Xbox One. Even if it is for one day or 2 hours. That target is ever-moving and today I'm about 200 achievements away or roughly three- to four-thousand Gamerscore, right now, as we're talking," Cox said.

Cox also said he might be more likely to chase this goal if Microsoft had Gamerscore leaderboards on Xbox Live, because that way he'd know where he stacks up with other players.

"Maybe I can catch it in the summer, or maybe at the first of next year. Maybe I'll never catch it. It may never happen, but I'll give it a shot," he added. "A thing that might keep me going like this for longer is if Xbox Live ever gets official Gamerscore leaderboards. People like leaderboards. Just saying."

Also in the Xbox Wire interview, Stallion83 recalls that the original Gears of War's "Seriously!?" achievement was one of the toughest to unlock. "I worked on that for several months straight, back when the game released -- and I regret nothing!" This achievement requires 10,000 kills in ranked matches.

Recalling his final run to 1 million Gamerscore, Stallion83 said, "I barely slept, but I did eat well, and drank plenty of water!" He crossed the 1 million mark in March while playing Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer shooter, Titanfall.

In November 2013, ahead of his 1 million Gamerscore accomplishment, Microsoft gave Stallion83 a lifetime membership to Xbox Live Gold in the form of a physical card with his name engraved on it.

Gamerscore = 1000000, Personal life score = 0


Way to go!

What is a gamerscore? I take it 1,000,000 is very good... But how does one get them, and what is the point of them?

Well when you have nothing better to do with yourself, of course your not going to stop anytime soon. I won't say he's a crack head gamer, just a bit crack-ish. Good luck on continuing upping your gamer score.I hope you at least open your blinds to see summer is approaching.

Stroke, stroke, stroke his already oversized ego/e-peen?

Achievements give me a reason to keep playing a game after I'd normally have got bored and moved on. However, I wouldn't play bad games or the same game from different regions just for gamerscore. I hardly have enough time to play the few titles there are on xbox one at the moment. I still have many hours of racing left to do in Forza 5 if I want to unlock the achievements there.

Kay, so what he`s doing is a waste of time, but most of the comments make it seem that A LOT of dudes suffer from a superiority complex. What do you care if he enjoys doing that?

His first acheivment should be getting a real life acheivment.

I'll stick to my 25K+ gamerscore and actually have fun with my games, fun in the real world, and be productive in my professional life. I know if I went the route of this guy starting when the 360 launched in late 2005, I'd probably hate my life right now, never got into college, never held any jobs, never have had any serious relationships, and never traveled.

Well his real name is Raymond Cox IV, and 9 out of 10 times if there is more than a jr in the family name there is Granddad's and dad's money as well. So from what I seen on his twitter page he literally has nothing else to do.

100'000 GS per year i feel bad for all the poor gameplay, pointless story modes and broken game mechanics that he had to play to the end ....but its his life and it's what makes you happy that is what's important.

Wow, look at all the people judging this guy without knowing anything about him other than his gamer score.

A leader board would be a bad thing, I'm afraid.  People would work HARD to hack something like that.

Of course he's not. He has literally nothing else to do.

This is no achievement.  I feel sorry for this guy.  Gaming should be a past time that brings enjoyment and provides temporary escape.  He's obsessive and probably has a number of disabilities (ADHD, etc).

All that achievement hunting must take the fun out of playing games. This wouldn't suit me but congratz to a great achievement I guess :)

I was never a fan of achievement hunting , i have about 25 games on 360 and about 9000G score . I just want to enjoy gaming for a few hours a week .... i don't want to kill myself :/

This guy probably shares his console with roommates of which one is his girlfriend. Oh and he's a prick for not telling the truth. You know how many no- lifes will ruin their lifes trying to beat this guy!?

If he was escaping into a holodeck after a long day of being a nobody at work like Barclay in the Star Trek TNG episode Hollow Pursuits I could at least kind of understand devoting this kind of time.  But gaming is nowhere near that immersive and then he'd be considered a holo addict.

If that's how he likes to spend his time, good for him. Long as he has his priorities straight, who are we to judge?

All it takes is press of a button for MS to shutdown the servers and bye bye achievements. Achievements can be fun to get but not when you're wasting your life away to get them. Because in a blink of an eye they can be wiped from the database and disappear forever. You'll never get that time back.

Where's my reward for buying 5 Xbox 360's and 1 Xbox One over the last 9 years. I'll tell you, getting banned multiple times because stores sold games early, paying for several Gold memberships when I wasn't allowed to use them, red ring failures, not getting to keep any of the digital downloads I paid for... yadda yadda. Either you assimilate into the X-Borg Collective or you fight against them I guess.

This guy is in decent shape, has a girlfriend and is the most hardcore gamer ever. Good for you man!

With MLG using Halo and this guy it seems like the most hardcore gamers play on Xbox, I wonder why that is.

Jeez, I don't think I've ever read a thread with as many hateful comments as this one. Stay classy, Gamespotters.

It's pretty cool that Microsoft gave him a lifetime subscription, though.

Really you have to wonder:


1.) Does he have a job?


2.)Even if he does what job could possibly support such a hobby?


3.)Is he a virgin?


4.) The say he has a GF but is she really his?


5.) What is his secret for looking so healthy on such an unhealthy lifestyle?


These are questions that continue to haunt me.

@UnrealPro  he travels has a live in g-friend......and is rewarded for what he does.  Check out his podcast Videogmae Popcast.  The guy isn't as lazy as everyone is making him out to be.

@Rambolike It's always nice to judge other people for doing what they want and not what we want :)

@Rambolike  Yup, my GS is high-ish at 250K plus but almost all of that was games I was having fun with. He literally has to play everything to death and has spent hours on games he probably hated. Totally defeats the point of gaming in the first place.

For the most part I agree but some games are just so good when the campaign is over I still want more so achievement hunting is a great way to see more of the game. I would say a big portion of Fable 2 was based on achievement hunting Skyrim was the same.

@endorbr Haha yeah right Xbox achievements system been hacked years ago and you can unlock any achievement you want with few clicks using the save data.

You are the most devoted Xbot I have ever seen. You give regular fanboys a bad name for that level of devotion to Microsofts console.

Amen,it seems like some of us have only gaming to make us feel pride and anyone better at it and that seems to have more going for them must be evil.

1.- Probably, and a good one, or he comes from a wealthy family.


2.- A great amount of jobs are able to sustain gaming, or even more expensive hobbies..... not everyone works at McDonalds  you know? 


3.- That's not what really defines if a person is good or bad, successful or unsuccessful, happy or unhappy, only people with low I.Q. or people who are insecure think that.


4,. lol who cares. that's none of your business, he can steal the girlfriend of whoever he wants, not a crime (at least not in my country) lol



5.-  Many probabilities, He has good genes, he exercises in between gaming sessions. he follows a good diet, hes a wizard. O_O

It's easy some people are over achieves they have to have the girlfriend the job and be incredibly healthy. Most of us are lazy put things off and drink to compensate for the things we know we could do but lack the motivation to do.

@adub424  some are fun to get , I beat all Halo games on legendary to get the achievement , but it was mostly because it was actually really fun on legendary . 

but getting 10,000 kills or things like that .... not fun ... not for me at least ...
