Trophies with no purpose other than to drive you insane.

Don't let the crazy trophies bother you. It will take all the enjoyment out of playing. Nobody really cares how many platinums you have.

That is exactly how I do it, I only play games once because playing a game more than once instanly bores me so i get as much as trophies as I can, and if it takes way to much time to get it, I just don't do it, could care less about a platinum.

Most trophies are a waste of time because they are tedious to get. If it's tedious it simply isn't fun.

However, there are a few cases where platinums are worth it. I have the platinum in Dark Souls and I like that I have it.

I rather prefer complete in-game objectives to be rewarded with bonus itens than run the trophie list dry. :)

I dont remember alot of trophies that got me angry
One I do remember was in Uncharted Golden Abyss, where you had to knock guys out after shooting them a bit, ten times in a row!

How about when they put like 40 online trophies and there's never a single player online

I hate that! Trophies when you need to rely on a bunch of random people to complete always suck. If I see a game that has online trophies these days I just straight away say Im not getting the platinum, unless its something like far cry 3, co-op trophies arent too bad.

One that sticks in my mind was a trophy on assassins creed online for killing people while hidden in a hay bail, I spent allot of time in those bails of hay and never once did anyone come past -.-

Trophies have some replay value and challenging someway to get that so if you want to be best in that game then complete every trophy otherwise skip it.

You just reminded me of getting the Sitting Ducks trophy in Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.... *shudders* One of my most frustrating moments, gaming...
