Five PlayStation 3 Games That Need Trophies

Perhaps the single most unexpected news PlayStation 3 gamers could have possibly received broke overnight. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, which launched exclusively on the PS3 more than four years ago, is getting a Trophy patch. Kojima himself confirmed the news by detailing a “budget version” of Metal Gear Solid 4 that catalyzed the creation of said patch.

This move has brought up an interesting question for the PlayStation faithful that have been eagerly awaiting Trophy patches for other games. If Metal Gear Solid 4 can be patched so long after it came out, why can’t some other older games also get patched? Trophies were first released in 2008 (with Super Stardust HD being the first game to get ‘em), and Trophies didn’t become mandatory until 2009. So our five prime candidates for Trophies below are all from the early days of the PlayStation 3. (Heavenly Sword, PS3, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion)

Megaman 9 over Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction? Really, IGN?
-GametimeUK-  +   1045d ago
I have yet to play R&C:ToD... I really need to play the collection and all the PS3 installments.

I have never played a Ratchet and clank game in my life :-(

So glad
Colin mentioned Valkyria Chronicles. Next to MGS4 back in 2008, everyone wanted a trophy patch for that game. I really hope Sega does it and work on getting VC back on console...

I either need these games on my Vita ASAP, or I need 2 and 3 on my PS3. I'd prefer them on PS3, to be honest, but if they're on Vita, I won't complain... too much.

Despite this being IGN I very much agree with Heavenly Sword.. final boss was a bi*ch and I felt like I deserved a trophy when I finally beat his arse lol..

Embarrassingly I've still yet to pick up Valkyria Chronicles and it would be good to have trophies too, that said I look forward to playing the game regardless.. Trophies aren't why I play games they're just a nice bonus.

I would probably purchase Eternal Sonata if it had trophy support. Its so shallow of me to keep putting off the purchase because of lack of trophies. I will eventually play this game. Also, I agree with Oblivion.

It's fantastic that the original Uncharted was patched. Ninja Gaiden Sigma would also be a good choice.
Darth Stewie  +   1045d ago
It's funny I picked Uncharted because it was one of the first games to get trophy support and because of this Uncharted became my favorite franchise. To think I almost missed out on Naughty Dog's next game because I was not really into Jak even though I loved Crash.
-GametimeUK-  +   1045d ago
I'm glad you decided to pick it up, bro. I tried the demo and instantly loved it. That was before the trophy patch.
TheFallenAngel  +   1045d ago
Resistance: Fall of Man!
It was an amazing game.
GaryOak  +   1045d ago
Oblivion was a "Hannah Montana" level of game to get 1000 Gamerscore on.You could almost get it without even trying.

Valkyria Chronicles please, then released Valkyria Chronicles 2 & 3 to PS3 in a collection.

Call of duty 4 is the one i most want this kind of update for, they must also add vibration support. i have yet to play call of duty 4 for this reasons.

also Bethesda should patch oblivion

A PS3 game without trophies is a non purchase for me. The only game that I own without trophies is MGS 4, trophies would give MGS 4 more replay value.
