With an old game like this it doesn't really matter because the content is set. I do miss games where you would find secrets instead of grinding dumb things for achievements though, I'd much rather find easter eggs and debug rooms than repeat an activity 1000 times so I can get a virtual back pat. I think I've done maybe a handful of truly interesting and fun achievements that are memorable. We're all wasting time gaming anyway but might as well make it interesting instead of repetitive.
I'm not so much interested in easter eggs or debug rooms - in fact I consider them immersion breaking - but I like random bonuses in obscure places.

As for achievements, most of the time I couldn't care less but occasionally I find them interesting. For instance, I was recently playing Civilization V again and started getting achievements I've not seen before - I quickly checked what they were and found myself getting sucked in. Beating the game on each difficulty level gets you an achieve; same with winning as each civ and with each victory type. Suddenly I found myself playing the game in an entirely different way and enjoying it a lot more.

But I couldn't care less about Microsoft achievement points system - why would I care if somebody has played more games and earned more points than me?
