This has been a topic on my mind for awhile and after watching a video about it I would like to see a few opinions. How many of you out there enjoy and strive to get trophies? To me, as I have gotten older and games have become not as hard to beat, the trophies give me a new challenge. It gives me a reason to play the game longer and work towards something more than just to finish the campaign. Any thoughts?

I'd say the majority don't care, but for me they serve the purpose of doing pretty much what you said, giving me a new challenge. I tend to get more out of games by going for their trophies as well. They give me incentive to go after collectibles, play on higher difficulties, and do other things I normally wouldn't bother doing.

I really enjoy getting them, i don't play games just because of them. But i like doing some of them if they mean i can have some fun during the game

I don't mind trophies. They give me a sense of achievement and some are fun to get. But I never go out of my way to platinum.

Lately though I have been trying to strive to get more trophies.

It's been awhile since I put any serious effort into obtaining trophies, though when they do happen to pop up, it does offer a temporary feeling of accomplishment that I sort of enjoy. For me, the main appeal of collecting trophies is increasing my total trophy count, as accumulating statistics and adding to my overall score in something is usually pretty fun. However, They don't cause me to play games that I normally wouldn't play or to attempt things that I otherwise wouldn't do just because it offers an easy chance at earning another trophy.

This guy basically says what I want to say in every single thread lately.

I enjoy collecting them too. It gives me an excuse to extend my playtime while also pushing me to explore everything the game has to offer. It's there anyway, so why not grab a few for fun's sake :3

That, and the trophies themselves are quite fun to look at with all the references and neat icons.

If I happen to randomly get them then cool but otherwise I couldn't care less about them.

Platinums are fun. I have only been with PSN since PS4 launch and I already have 12 platinums.

I'm pretty impartial to them... If I get one, cool. But I don't go out of my way to earn them.

I generally don't necessarily care about trophies. I usually only play games I am interested in and get the trophies associated with that game, i.e. Infamous: Second Son. I have 12 plats and the last one I plat'ed was The Last of Us. I don't play games just to get trophies. I enjoy them but I don't feel the need to play games I know I won't like simply to get something that is otherwise irrelevant.
