After having them on the XB360 and on the PS3, I grew fond of them and that might be the reason why I play my Vita more than my 3DS. I will still pick up the Wii U because of Zombie U and Pikmin 3.

Achievements and trophies give me that extra push to play a game a second time and do the extra stuff. The only time I did that without the trophy/achievement incentive was with GTA:SA.

personally i think achievements and trophies hinder your experience with a game. because people focus on doing the certain requirements to get them than focusing on the game itself. nintnedo understands this that's why their is no sort of achievement system like that with the wii u. i commend them for that, sure achievements are nice but they aren't needed. they certainly don't give me the push to play a game again.

Well I'm sorry "if", I'm saying "if" you try to go for trophies first instead of enjoying the game first. My thing is, I don't even bother to look at the trophy list until I've beaten the game, so I could enjoy the full experience without worry about the next trophy. If I get a trophy, SWEET, if not i keep on playing. I personally love the achievement/trophy system. It's a good way to add extra playtime throughout the game, and is a good way to have little competitions with your friends for giggles.

tbh i don't go for trophies at all. i just try to reach 100% in the game itself. so your "If" is just that a "if"

Again, it isn't something that prevents millions of people buying a console. It paves the way for DLC abuse by pushing people's need to get 100 % on everything. And it really says more bad about it if you can't play games without them.

Sure there are people who care. But how many really?

I've never seen a trophy set that you couldn't platinum without DLC. MS' achievement system is different, but you can still have hundreds of games and achievements from all over the place and a respectable gamer score.

My highly minimal set of platinums needed no DLC. (Infamous 1 & 2, Terminator Salvation, Sly Cooper 1). I'll get to plat on Batman:AA and Just Cause 2 one day, too, and they don't need DLC.

Really? That's like saying it's advertisers fault you bought something. I know Obama was re-elected but do we have to become a worldwide society where we do not have to take responsibility for anything we do or fail to do? Are you so weak that publishers are able to victimize you with some DLC trophies or achievements? What's next, the President appoints a cabinet position of fairness to stop game companies from victimizing you? Do you not see how that sounds? If they make a sequel aren't they also playing you and your weak will? I am not necessarily indication you personally but I think you get the picture.

IMO it would be more fun for games to have most off not all accomplishments locked out as secret, stops ppl going for the achievements as if that's what the game is, it's always more fun IMO when you pull of a good achievement on the fly than trying to beat it possibly after resorting to a guide anyways kind of defeats the point if you solely aim for it. But that's just my opinion.

rytlok1349d ago

i dont care about them anyways
