At first I enjoyed them. In concept it makes sense that it adds replay-ability, it should only be a positive. I definitely have re-played a few games a 2nd or 3rd time through just to get the platinum trophy. That's a good thing. But I have to admit at times it also effects which games I feel like playing.

So I suppose that is a bit of a negative in that I might have delayed playing a few games because I "didn't feel like going for trophies", or because I got caught up trying to 100% something I might have set aside another game that was actually much, much better.

Fortunately I don't get caught up TOO much if I can't 100% game. Sometimes I will go all the way, and other times it's just not worth it. There have been more than a few games that I set out to 100%, but then when I discovered just how un-FUN the online or collectibles were, I ended up just abandoning the quest for 100% and moving on to something better. There's a few on my friends list that literally 100% *EVERY* game they play, and to me that would almost be torture. Sometimes you just have to walk away from a mediocre game. Especially those that are more time consuming.

i don't mind trophies, there are good reasons to enjoy them. Developers put them out there for players to enjoy everything about the game more. I don't mind them, if you want to play the game and get platinums all around good(though i don't do that). I enjoy trying to get some, but i don't got after platinums and i do those that i enjoy and if i enjoy the game itself

I couldn't care less for trophies. It is ok if I get some trophy but I don't play the game to get them. If a game is feeling like a long chore rather than a fun game, you shouldn't pay too much attention to trophies.

Ya, i'm right with you on the OCD thing. It seems like I HAVE to get the trophys. It's almost like, if I don't, something just not right and it's just calling me to get those damned trophys.

It goes both ways; I really enjoy collecting them and for some games they've been a push to do an extra playthrough on hard or something that I end up seriously enjoying. So in many cases I got extra enjoyment out of a game that wouldn't have occured otherwise.

Though a couple of times it's made a game experience worse. I played Darksiders on hard because of trophies. Now it wasn't hard or anything it was just repetitive. Bosses had soooooooo  much health that battles got protracted and clearly weren't balanced for good gameplay and thus it was a weaker experince. (Unlike say, Dark Souls where the player and the boss have relatively low health and the game is flawlessly balanced and super intesne and awesome)

exactly how i feel i have only 6 full 1000/1000 games (bioshock trilogy, cod 2 and cod4 and assassins creed 2) on xbox from a while ago, stopped caring when i got a ps3. to be fair though i have been obsessed with those games. anything else and its just a chore becuase i feel crappy about how i have a bunch of "incomplete games) lol.

Nope, I don't pay them much attention when I first play the game. If I had fun with the game, and the trophies don't look to complicated, I'll probably eventually go back through and see how many I can collect. But I replay games all the time with no thought of trophies, and I have to be in the right mood to trophy hunt.

Their are some trophies that ruin my gameplay like collectables in linier type games. I dont want to replay the game for the collectables so I try and get them on my first playthrough and I usually end up watching a guide for them thus ruining it for me.

Yeah they're starting to get on my nerves as well. They are like the 400lb gorilla in the room, and almost feel like a burden sometimes. People say if you don't like them, ignore them, but sometimes it's a hard thing to do. The impulse to compare a play-through with what a  friend did is irresistible, and even though we all know they're superficial and mean nothing in the end, most of us just can't resist trying to get them, even the hard and time-consuming ones that make you wanna pull your hair out.

 

At this point I wish they never existed in the first place so I could just enjoy the game the way I want to.

I am very much a perfectionist in that I try to experience everything a game has to offer, which, of course, included going after trophies. But after a while I noticed that that was getting in the way of my initial playthroughs of a game, acting more as a checklist as opposed to what an intial playthrough should be: experiencing the game itself. So now I just play a game without really giving trophies a second thought. If I happen to get trophies, then great; if not, that's fine, too.

I used to be an avid trophy hunter. Ended up with 10 platinums. Then I started playing around on some other platforms and old school games and realized I was doing stupid stuff in games merely for the sake of 100% completion. I was replaying games that I didn't enjoy that much, doing stuff I didn't really care about. I can't pin it to an exact time but I just stopped caring about it. I'd enjoy them more if they managed to stick to being digital checklists of 100% completion but so many of them have random and odd stuff to do in them.

Now I'm just indifferent to them. They're just there. I check them out of curiousity from time to time but they no longer impact the way I play like they used to. I don't dislike them but I don't really care for them either.

Before there were ever trophies I used to just play through a came casually before moving onto the next. But with trophies I complete multiple playthroughs and spend a lot more time with a game before moving on. In saying that, I dont buy games just for trophies, I buy quality games and they are just a bonus for me

I ignored them for the first year, then from September 2009 - January 2013 I went pretty hard at obtaining them. Since I hit 5000 trophies, ive pretty much quit and have gone back to SNES/PS2/GBA

Same. I'm very sure that was the intention of whoever thought these things up: Added motivation for replaying a good game, not for playing it.

I try to get the platinum for each game that I play. Realistically it seldom works out because the trophies themselves are just ridiculous or I get burnt out on the game. I wouldn't say trophies have ruined games so much as they've made me more self-conscious of the games I choose to play. I stay away from games with heavy emphasis on multiplayer or those that have a substantial amount dedicated to online play. I've always been a single-player lover so I naturally gravitate towards those types of games that offer me a better chance of unlocking trophies through a SP experience.

It's so hard for games to nail the perfect balance of challenge versus reward. On one hand you want the ease of unlocking them but not to the point that they no longer present a challenge. I think a game that does a good job of trophy allotment is the Uncharted series where they present just enough of a challenge and don't feel extraneous to earn, but at the same time aren't given away liberally.

I dont think so..it adds more to the game especially those that are finished in under 10 hours. It add challenges and replayability; most of them are stuff you wouldnt normally due after you complete a game.

Trophies are kind of a double-edged sword.  Some of them you'll want to take the time to get, or be happy to accidently stumble upon.  Others take way too much time to get or are handed out like crazy, and just seem pointless.  I don't think there will ever be a happy medium with this sort of thing anyway.

I guess if there's a game I really like that I can spend a lot of time playing, I might feel more inclined to take the time to unlock as many achievements as I can on it.

Nope. I only go out of my way to get them on my second playthrough. On my first, I just want to coast through and enjoy the game.

I enjoyed getting my 21 platinums.  It's almost like an RPG thing - you collect them throughout the game until you've got them all, sort of like levelling up your character in a way.  But now it's almost impossible to find a game you can platinum without online trophies, and I just hate that.  If they're not forcing you to play some crappy tacked-on multiplayer for 10 times longer than any sane person could possibly enjoy it, they're forcing you to find trophy boosting partners and deal with all the nonsense of scheduling a boosting session with people halfway across the world and having them not show up etc.

So yeah, I used to enjoy trophies but the fact that they've pretty much ruined them now has definitely reduced my interest in gaming.

Usually they help me get everything out of a game, but sometimes there are ridiculous trophies that require mindless grinding or playing an online you don't care for. Sometimes I become a little too dedicated... I don't like giving up on a relatively easy game to plat, but some trophies are so dumb I just don't know why I bother. Overall trophies haven't really been detrimental to my gaming experience, because again, they usually actually help me get most of what I can out of a game. Extra motivation, I guess.

Yup, 100 % agree.

Though ocassionally I look it up every now and then too see what exactly this trophy was for I just got and scroll it quick through when I begin a new game, but then I just play the game, enjoy what it has to offer (or hasn't x) ) and when I'm done and want more of it I check them through and go for them.


It's all a matter of discipline: You should always see them as extra like DVD Extra Menu's and stuff like that, never as something that belongs to the core game.

Trophies do not ruin my experiences other than take my attention away from what I was doing when it pings up onscreen.

Now that---I do wish I could toggle on/off. I could care less about this completely arbitrary 'achievements'.

Eloquently THIS. I don't care either way, as I've been a gamer looong enough to where I can recall a time like that 'trophies' didn't matter. If I get them along the way when I'm playing---fine. But I don't make it a ridiculously tedious chore to go 'hunting' for them, so I can't say it 'ruins' anything for me b/c I don't let it.

I used to be a crazy trophy collector.  It was almost like an obsession.  I think I'm currently sitting at 29 platinums.  I must say that I rather enjoyed it, but most games have started to incorporate online requirements for trophies, and if the game's online portion sucks, and it usually does, then I'm not going to waste my time.  I have no inclination to play assassins creed games online just to get 100%.  For the life of me cannot understand why they've started making online trophies.  Once the game's online community dies it's virtually impossible to get 100% which really sucks for avid trophy hunters.

I don't care too much about trophies. I've got more of an attachment to achievements but even then it's just bonus content to me. By their very design (being optional and providing nothing more than a digital trophy that isn't even good looking), there's no way they could have a negative impact on me. Some people have that addictive and gluttonous nature though where they have to complete everything and anything put in front of them, even if they don't have to and they hate doing it. I feel sorry for those folk.

I like the trophies and the leveling up type of thing on the PSN...but it isn't a something too important for me. Sure I'd rather have the game to have trophies, but I never go out of my trying to obtain one. I only get the ones that are following the storyline mostly unless I truly love the game.

Nope, I usually for the most part ignore them for a first playthrough of the game, and if I don't think it is going to be too difficult I may try for the platinum, but lately haven't tried to get any trophies likely due to lack of motivation for it which is probably why I haven't platinumed a game this year yet.

If I've got one problem with trophies, its multiplayer trophies.  Take Tomb raider and Assassins creed as examples.  Single player games at heart with multiplayer trophies? Tell you whats bullshit - Thats Bullshit.  And the problem is that they are launch trophies to begin with.  So you cant get the platinum unless you play the feckless multiplayer mode that the developers have just tacked on the game as an afterthought.

If you were playing games that are meant to have multiplayer (CoD, MoH, GT5 etc.) I wouldn't complain so much.  They need them.

If I think I can get a certain trophy I will attempt it if it is way out of my reach I won't bother but normally I just lay the game for the experience and to enjoy it.

I know what you're feeling. Early on I just played games for fun and if I trophy popped up then great. Sometimes I would replay a game to try to earn certain trophies and challenge myself. Now it seems whenever I start a game I've noticed I adjust my playing style in order to get a trophy. A most recent example would be when I was playing Bioshock Infinite, I'd use only specific weapons or combos in order to contribute to trophy tallies rather than using a weapon I enjoyed or better suiting the combat situation I was in.

The best tactic going forward would be to not read the trophy list until after completing the game so you don't get distracted. After the game you can decide whether or not you want to bother earning certain trophies. More likely than not you'll not bother wanting to go back and get trophies in comparison to starting a game with trophies in mind so it's probably for the best and will encourage you to move on to better games or replaying games that warrant a replay.

Well, for me it gives me a sense of something achieved. Trophies work for me and I am the sort of guy who throws the game away when it's finished. But thanks to trophies I stick to the game after I have completed the main story/part of it.

Nah. I'm the old-school type who gets done with a game once I've beaten it at the hardest difficulty level.

Ruin? Not really, I do enjoy collecting trophies during my play-through but that's about it. You won't see me purposely spending enormous amount of time trying to obtain them for collecting reasons.

They are a fun bonus to me personally, nothing more.
