Splitkick - Intangible Rewards

Splitkick: I am somewhat of a completionist when it comes to video games. Whether it’s due to O.C.D. or wanting to get my money’s worth out of a game, I can’t tell. What I do know is that this compulsive behavior leads me to collecting as many Achievement points and Trophies as I possibly can while playing a game. I will go out of my way to attempt completing all but the most absurdly difficult or time consuming meta-goals in the hopes of getting to that 100% mark or Platinum. So why don’t developers want to give me better carrots to keep playing their games? (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A nice article. I wish we got something for the time we put into games. Props to Sucker Punch for giving me extras for my platinum on inFamous. While I don't think they will give DLC away because of financial reasons, it would be nice to get a little something of a bonus for our trophy chasing and putting the time in especially online. A weapon unlock, skins, themes, avatars, etc.

Thanks! DLC would be great, but I would definitely settle for something small like avatars or themes. Yeah, Sucker Punch was good about taking advantage of their ability to deliver extras.
