Getting badges is an interactive feature for users on Breakthrough Gaming that gamifies a typical website into something more enjoyable.
Badges are basically rewards for users who access and contribute to Breakthrough Gaming. For example if you comment on a post or page you get a badge as a reward. It may seem trivial but these badges are a silly little way of Breakthrough Gaming thanking you for your contribution. Each badge is worth a certain number of points too, so to try rack up as much as you can.
If you’re familiar with the Playstation Network’s Trophy system or the achievement system on Xbox Live – you’ll understand the gratification badges have.
A list of all available badges that users can earn along with a description of how it’s earned will be posted individually, so keep on eye out.
However if the Badge System is abused, such as someone posting a comment saying “First lol” the method of handing them out will change to admin only.
Here is a list of currently available badges. Collect them all!
Badges are also used for reviews as a kind of visual summary. It’s great for those who can’t be bothered to read our ramblings.
Here is a list of some of the badges that can be awarded for certain games.
