The lights are on
A few months ago we asked readers what the greatest reward they've ever gotten in a video game is. We ran a couple of replies in the newest issue of Game Informer, but there were plenty more pieces of coveted loot and hard-earned achievements that readers pointed to as high points in their gaming careers.

I love achievements.
How about the Hyper Beam? A little baby Metroid grew attached to you early on. Later, not only does it save your life, it sacrifices its own and rewards you with the Hyper Beam!
too much to read
" A life with no regrets.." Catherine....
Definitly the hand cannon in Dead Space 2, most OP weapon ever!
The "Advent Rising" comment made my day.
A pretty good list, but some of these people just sound downright silly haha :D
I am an achievement slave unfortunately. I do love seeing those points rack up but honestly I feel like completely a game through the end is the best reward. Playing through all 3 gears of war games was fantastic when you see the final cinematic and also through the Uncharted series. I personally just love getting to see a story arc complete
The 'booster packs' in ME3's Co-op are pretty darn addicting I must say.
having all of my characters survive the suicide mission in mass effect 2. also fighting with kratos's brother in ghost of sparta was very rewarding and got me thinking about possible co-op in the future.
The best reward I've gotten from a video game was the hours of entertainment they offer. If I can play a video game for what feels like five minutes, only to find out it's been 7 hours... then I know the game is rewarding me by keeping me entertained for that long. Unless it's just a terrible game I can't pull my eyes away from.
The best video game reward I have gotten is beating Alan Wake four times. (And I won't stop there)
My favorite is beating a game on hard or veteran level; especially when u get consecutive killshots going. That's the best reward of the game, in my humble opinion!
Beating Blue once and for all!
