This Mod Adds A Better Kind Of Achievement To Skyrim

I rarely get too caught up chasing down achievements in games, but every so often they get under my skin. "Make it through Ravenholm without using a gun, eh? Alright, it's on."

The feeling of accomplishment that comes with earning an achievement can be fleeting. What did I get, other than a little note that will only ever be noticed by weirdos who open my profile to compare achievements? Not much.

Thanks to 3JIou's new Skyrim mod "Achieve That", you can chase achievements in Skyrim and actually get rewards for completing them. Will this system ever match the old George Mallory-style intrinsic reward of climbing the mountain just because it's there? Probably not. Is it still kind of cool to chase 'em all down? Sure.

To use the mod, you'll need to have the Sky UI mod, which adds a Mod Configuration Menu to the game. There, you can access all 109 of the added achievements.

If you, like me, are considering starting up a new Skyrim character (for some ungodly reason oh god please stop me), it'll probably be fun to start fresh with new, useful achievements.

    FYI New Vegas had these types of achievements/challenges as well in the base game and its really is the only way achievements should be done.

    its funny... i'm just starting my new playthrough after finishing the main story on 360... i've bought all the dlc on pc so its time to start again... i've spent the last couple nights playing with visual tweaks and ui mods... so this is the next one to add i think :)

    I never quite got the concept of the achievements. I mean, I get that they're something like the modern day equivalent to yesteryear's high score, but, even as a kid, I never saw much point to it. I've always wanted some kind of tangible reward for my efforts, not just 'bragging rights'. Who am I going to brag to anyways? It's the internet, half won't believe you and the other half won't care. Gimme the augmented weapon, the tweaked armour, or the gold every time. My opponents won't care about bragging rights when they lay dead at my hand... :p
