I agree.

I love trophies and achievements. When they are done well they add content to a game and they can also be a lot of fun.

I think I'd be more interested in the idea if it took an automatic screenshot or ten second video and posted it on Miiverse showing the moment you received the accomplishment. Basically make it more social than how it's been utilized on other platforms.

Thats a good idea, I just want Nintendo to provide some sort of reward to discuss with your friends on MiiVerse.

i agree, too. i overcame my trophy-addiciton 2 years ago, but the wii u desperately needs such a system. i really want a reason for switching my wii u on again and i also would like to have a reason why i should care about other people on the miiverse. just watching them prance around doesn't do the trick for me as a consumer.

I disagree.

I hate achievements.
I love to play games because I enjoy them. If you need achievements its because you are

A. Insecure
B. A child
C. A chav

If you feel the need to complain about something that is completely optional, refer to your own 'a,b,c' advice.

I've always been a staunch supporter of trophies/achievements, but you, sir, have turned me around. Fantastic logic.

Seriously though, Nintendo have created this fantastic social experience on their console that let's people discuss games in a clean, safe, creative environment. It's fantastic and innovative and if you haven't checked it out yet, I strongly suggest you do.

The only thing missing? Actually being able to compare games. Even if it's a progress bar - "This player has finished 58% of Game A" - the Miiverse would be better for it, although full achievements would be even greater.

What if you don't need them? But find some of them fun?

What does that make you?

Summons751263d ago

No they really don't. Achievements add nothing to games except an award which you get nothing.

they are rewarding, fun and addictive

Summons751263d ago

not really awarding since you don't get anything besides a number next to your gamertag and your immersion into the game broken by a big ding during the middle of a cutscene. Rewarding is when you go out of your way to find a secret hidden item that your friends didn't know about. Now devs just tell you exactly where it is and how to get it in order to get a.....number.

I don't like being told how to play my games and games never had a problem with replay value before so when someone can come up with a legitimate argument as to why trophies are good then please do tell.

If you read the article you'll see that its more than just text. Its a social experience the other consoles have and Nintendo is missing out on.

look I respect your opinion but if u want a legit Reason u got it, Imagine if achievements and trophies got canceled now by sony and ms, the net will blow up, imagine the outrage, the petitions, the requests, the youtube vids, the tweets etc... , U may not give a F*** but majority of gamers like it and find it rewarding and addictive, do u remember how many people wanted trophies for MGS 4???
