Why do you play a game? For the enjoyment of the game, or to trophy whore, and increase your online ranking? This article basically talks about the shift towards more achievement based gaming when compared to simpler times.
I'll admit it: I'm a trophy whore.
The first step is admitting it. Me? I play for fun.
but you're not trying to imply that trophy whoring is not "fun", are you?
i play to experiance the games not so i can wave some virtual version of my willy.
I don't really care for trophies but I do have a plat for Tekken 6 to show im bad ass and *the_best_player*
I play games for fun, but I love trophies because if the game is single player only it gives you some incentive to want to play the game again. Im no trophy whore but if I really like the game then I will definitely plat it.
yea I dont try to hard but if its not to crazy to accomplish i'll do it.
I play for the fun, I dont give a shit about the trophies.
agree the way its ment to be
A bit of both. I'm very picky about my Trophy collection. If I don't intend to play to 100% completion, I won't even start it. Helps with weeding out the impulse purchases, though. I haven't regretted buying any game in a couple years now.
Play for fun, I go for trophies because it adds extra challenge. I certainly don't brag about it.
First for fun, then for achievements.
What he said, but with Trophies. If the game isn't fun there's not point in pushing for the Platinum
I play for fun, but there comes a certain point in the game where it becomes a relentless trophy chase. Its the only reason I completed uncharted 1 and 2 like 5 times each.
Oh my god...I did the same for U2...I ended up going for the plat, but getting bored and never finishing...I realized I cant plat games, and IDC Lol
If by the end of the game, I've got most of the trophies, I don't mind replaying if I enjoyed the game. But, as I discovered with the Force Unleashed the other day, I'm not the trophy whore I thought I was. Nothing will make me play that rubbish again - And I have platinum trophies for both Wheelman, and Dark Void.
I beat the game on hard first. Then if the game was good first time round I will collect trophies for it!Although there are a few games that are noted as extremely hard to plat so I am trying to get every trophy in those games.
See, im the opposite. If I have a game that is hard to plat, such as 3D Dot Game Heroes, I wont plat it, and ill do a "For the lulz" playthrough. If I have a game that seems easy to play, like Dead Space, ill attempt it. Im going for the DS plat right now, hopefully I dont get bored! :P
Dead space plat was easy. I got it very quick. I just got killzone 3 plat, now i am working on castlevania plat which is tricky.
I could care less for trophies, I play games that entertain me
It really depends on the game; certain games are just REALLY boring when you over-play them. Do I ever go out and get a game, just for the sake of getting it's Plat.? Of course not, that's not why these games are made, so I think people miss the point when they focus primarily on achievements/trophies.
Well I didn't get a Ps3 or 360 until a year ago, and before then I didn't even give a thought about trophies or achievements, like just for an example if SSBB had trophies, I played it so much that I would have defiantly gotten them all, but now with a ps3, I still play the games for the game, but after I finish it's main story or play it for a while then I might start to trophy hunt if the game is good enough. All depends on the game.
