Achievements: one of the deadly sins that has ruined modern gaming.
I get being a completionist. However, this really speaks to self restraint. Just because you go hiking every once in a while, doesn't mean that you aren't real until you have taken Everest. Set your own internal 'Finish' point.
For me, I gage what portion of the game is reasonable to complete (I don't do or care about achievements), and I call that complete. Example, I play Metroid Zero Mission on my DS. I have never gotten 100% of all the items in the game. And although it is possible, I simply don't have the time or mental focus to power through them all. Because it is just a game.
set some self control. Assign completion points and work towards them. Otherwise you become a slave to whatever the Devs want to put out there.
