Biography of an extreme trophy collector, nearly 10,000 trophies!

PS3 Attitude writes:
"Since 2008, trophy integration forever changed playing games on PlayStation consoles. Firmware update 2.41 for the PS3 brought this amazing new feature as well as the in-game XMB.

PS3 Attitude spoke with PlayStation gamer Will Voss about how he became hooked on trophy collecting and what his girlfriend thinks of his habits. We also get a closer look at how to better our own trophy collecting abilities."

I'm pretty sure someone is about to comment "No life" or "The virginity is strong in this one" but that's a pretty big accomplishment for him to get that many trophies i mean i don't even have that much and i know someone who has nearly 17000+ trophies no joke.

I wouldn't say spending A LOT of your life getting fake trophies is an accomplishment.

@Gaden Malak i mean it's his personal accomplishment.

What PSN name has 17000+ trophies Wesker?

I'm honestly proud to say I never hunt down trophies sand neither do I give a **** about them. Switched accounts and lost about 500 of them and guess what I love my new account it has been at 8 for like over a year. I simply don't care, don't have the time, and would never consider wasting my life away for mostly useless achievements. I respect this guy for his good plats and hard trophies but I would never condone something like this. This kind of lifestyle is VERY unhealthy for people.

Trophies are a fake representation of something done in a fake world. Please remember that. They can be fun once in a while but people should keep it at that. Trophy whores are pathetic human beings.

What's really bad is when people buy bad games with easy trophies just to rank up. I would never spend money on a game I don't enjoy just for trophies or achievements.

Yea, I'm just talking about what I got. You've clearly put a lot of thought into it. If I get a trophie fine it's cool, if not so what.

I just play the game and the trophies I unlock are just there.

Although I did go out of my way in Fight Night 4 to beat Ali and Tyson on greatest of all time difficulty. Tyson I achieved, Ali is impossible.

I'm closing in on 5200, but I only have 36 platinum trophies. I just buy a lot of games and I only get 100% on games I can stay interested in long enough to do so. Nice thing is, I can always go back and finish them. No Hannah Montana or 3 different versions of the same game by region, no gamefly scrub either. XD

Wish I had the time...

I got about 115 trophies from Vita's release date. IDK if I am a trophy whore or something, but trophies make the game more challenging to me and extends game's length. I can't afford myself to purchase a $55 game every two weeks, so it helps me a lot actually.

That makes you a Trophy Collector :D You ain't no whore.

The post was updated. A reader discovered an error in the averages of trophies and it has been corrected. I'm really surprised no one else caught that. Including myself of course! The first question is now a bit more palatable.
