Achievements are fun, and they do give you something to do and grind toward that isn't raiding or questing or pvp, so that's cool. You're wrong that it came from imitating xbox live, though. The WoW achivement system is pretty much a straight lift of the Badge system from City of Heroes. There were badges for completing certain storylines, for killing a certain number of mobs of a certain faction, for exploration, for completing task forces (CoH raids, more or less), for pvping, and any number of other accomplishments in game. There were even special powers one could unlock by getting the right meta badges. All this 3+ years before WoW implemented an achievement system.
