I think no achievements.

I have played a game with achievements offline and steamworks will cache that info and you'll see your achievements pop up next time you're online.

The downside to this is that you'll see all those achievements at the time of your login and if you're making a buttload of achievements other people will think you're using SAM to cheat them.

I don't spend that much time offline in achievement games so it's not a big deal to me, but it might be for some. I personally don't have any respect for someone who regularly uses SAM to spam my activity feed with 3 pages of achievements, so if *I* saw it, that's what I'd think.

I don't even get the purpose of achievement farming, especially if you're not actually earning them or anything. Exactly what do you get out of having all the achievements if you just hacked to "get" them and didn't complete what you should have? There's nothing to brag about, because you didn't actually do the things.

Then again, most of the time I find even legitimately earned achievements to be a waste of time, and they've become one of the most obnoxious things about modern gaming. But cheating/hacking to collect them without even earning them? That's beyond stupid.

I guess you get to pretend that you're some super gamer with 158 perfectly completed games or whatever. I suppose there's no harm in it really since like you said, there's no real gain to it, but it's annoying to see, especially when they unlock 15 games worth of achievements all at once like this:

That wasn't even everything.

Really hard achievements? I guess you could get the, now cliche', sense of pride and satisfaction that comes from spending lots of time on a difficult task... but with SAM you can just push a button and unlock everything at once.

Some devs have taken to putting in impossible achievements to see who unlocks them.

Some misinformation here.

Steam family sharing
Allows you to share majority of your games to other selected accounts. Need to sign in on a machine with account sharing with and activate it on that machine. Any user that signs on to that machine will then be allowed to play majority of games installed and download others. Some games like csgo cannot be shared and need to buy a different license for other accounts. Also games that need 3rd party clients can't be shared (Eg Uplay games)

Family sharing will allow up to 5 users/machines to play 5 different games simultaneously, however you can't play the same game at the same time. Account holder has control and if they pick a game someone else is playing they will get kicked u less in offline mode

Why the hell would you tag the TC while quoting blatantly false information that will mislead the TC? What purpose does that serve?

To troll I guess? Don’t worry! I already the whole topic so thank you all for giving me real info with source and stuff ;)
I will just do the family share thing with my brother and I will play offline or use my PS4 if I want to game (Monster Hunter coming soon anyways)
