Achievement Systems are inextricably tied to the largest gaming service platforms in the world currently.

However, prevalent models of motivation report that extrinsic motivation undermines intrinsic interest in a task. This paper seeks to explore this problem space and offers a proposed method of measuring this phenomenon.
