Poll Xbox Achievements vs PS Trophy system (66 votes)

Xbox Achievements and GamerScore 32%
PlayStation Trophies 32%
I don’t care to keep track of “achievements/trophies” 36%

Just curious which system you guys prefer? Xbox’s achievement scores or PlayStation’s trophies and where it shows the percentage of the game’s trophy collection completed?

I started off with Xbox 360 and earning achievements. After switching to the PS5 I gotta say I preferred the achievements and gamerscore on Xbox. For a while I kind of learned to forget about them but my OCD makes me want to get most of the trophies to consider a game being”beat”.

I can't say that I care either way. I am more a fan of MS Reward points.

I prefer trophies because I'm a Playstation gamer but I really don't care about them either way. At best, gives a kind of check list of things to do so you can say you 100% beat a game. It's essentially meaningless.

Trophies have always been #1 for me

It goes

Trophies > WoW achievements > Xbox Gamer Score (trash) = Steam Achievements (trash)

I can get a PLATINUM which is the 100% of all the other trophies unlocked. Thats sick when you get plat you see it other people see it. It puts respect on your name. You get some gamer score nobody even cares.

Trophies are crushing it sony is crushing it.

I love the different levels gold is harder than silver and bronze are the easy its just taking gamer score and achievements to the next level.

Hopefully steam and xbox take there systems to the next level some day you have compete at the end of day you can't just coast anymore with trophies around.

Trophies. Getting a plat feels like a real accomplishment. Building a score is meaningless. When you see those people with like a million gamer score you just know they have no life.

Never got into that stuff much. If I'm really diggin a game I'll have a look at them. If there are some fun extra goals to shoot for, I'll go for it. About it.

But yeah, no real preference either way. They all ask you to meet the same goals, right?

Getting a Platinum is always fun, felt much better personally. Its always a proud moment when you get a very rare 1% Platinum trophy than idk complete a gamescore or whatever on steam.

@ProtossRushX:

Good point about the platinum Trophies, I didn’t consider those vs just a number for gamerscore. I don’t know if I have the patience to earn a platinum trophy but atleast you have something to show for it and to prove you beat everything.

I'm FF Fanboy I get every nook and cranny out of those games. I Platted FF12 Zodiac twice on ps4 once on steam I'm just gonna get everything on switch without the achivements.

If i love a game im damn well gonna get every trophy in it and it feels great i dunno what are your talking about i loved getting all those PS trophies in FF12 zodiac age, do you know hard it is to do every hunt and every optional unique boss theres 100's and you have to do this chain of like 12 limits in a row so think again I had a blast and they were hard. Thats the fun of it it being a challenge and fun.

They're awesome for a game that I'm really digging. Gives me an "excuse" to keep at it, try different strategies and shit. For the most part they're meh. I would rather have rewards than emails though, so achievements I guess. I know I got a platinum, I don't need Sony to remind me and spam my inbox. Give me credit to use on the store or something.

So you don't care if you just get some random points rather than having a tier'd trophy's like a bronze for an easy one silver for medium and gold for hard and a plat for everything?

You don't care?

Do you care about having folders or anything else thats better than not having folders like dude ones a deeper system why the hell would not prefer that to the other system? Its like why not just pick the deeper system and move on even if you don't care about trophies.

Would I rather have 1000 gb hard drive or 900 gb hard drive if im not gonna use all of the 900 gb the 1000 doesn't matter but ill take over 900 everytime you know what I mean even if I don't use the extra space. Thats called logic. 1000 > 900

Tiered > a bunch of random points

Dude what is going on here.

I prefer the Achievement system myself but trophies are kind of cool too. I really wish that Nintendo would implement some kind of system themselves.

They're essentially the same thing, but the addition of the platinum trophy makes trophies slightly better imo.

Xbox best, enjoy the overall number going upwards. I still have no idea what or how many trophies each "tier" represents, after like 15 years, ha.

I have both Trophies and Achievements switched off. Not only I don't care, I also am of the opinion that they make my gaming experience worse. I like to engage with games organically, not go through laundry lists.

I do get they can be a useful tool for those less fortunate that need to get more rentability from their games, and I totally respect that, it's just not how I enjoy my games.

Achievements are more for End Game and extending the games life. Like after you beat the game you go back and try to 100% complete everything to get the platinum. Its not like oh i gotta do all this in a check order like your saying. Thats what they are for me. I love only trophies tho I don't care about achievement points at all i just care about Plats.

I liked achievements better from 05 to 08. Now trophies are much better. Lost interest in getting all the trophies years ago, but somehow wasted time to get all the trophies in tlou2 and demon's remake.

I don't care much about the differences between them, but I like the idea of a platinum trophy. I am not really a trophy hunter but if there's a game I like, then doing the trophies is a bonus to extend the replay value to me.

Dude thats the thing companies are supposed to steal idea's from each other and improve on them.

We have a situation here where sony took the xbox achievements idea made it better with trophies and now microsoft hasn't done crap update their point system or anything and is just stagnating.

They got rid of all the stuff that made 360 great the xbox live arcade the little avatar guy you make everything took a back seat for xb1 which was trash windows 8 garbo. Achievements weren't even popping for me when i played halo mcc the achievement system got moved into its own app so it was the same as the 360's ones popping it was a horrible friggin experience i hate my xb1 and i love my trophies way more now.

You know why the achievements didn't pop on MCC? its because you don't own an Xbox, as you can't provide your GT to prove what your saying. Everyone knows you're a fakeboy with fake outrage.

So lies, lies & more lies.

You earn points for completing certain tasks. These points can be redeemed for Xbox store gift cards.

I like trophies more just because of the platinum trophy you can earn, but both can be fun if you're into the game.

Getting achievements that give you reward points is a clever idea. Makes you try games you otherwise wouldn’t bother with....never heard of subnautica until a reward was offered for an achievement. Downloaded it through GP and haven’t stopped playing since.

tbh not a big deal either way, I think the trophy system is somewhat more visible which is a plus, ultimately I am only going to look at 1000/1000 or platinum-ing a game if I enjoy the game to begin with, the presence or absence of a Trophy system does not alter my fundamental view of any given title, so it's a nice bonus feature but one system or the other there is little difference, the use of plat trophys makes it a little quicker to determine how many titles have been 100%'d which is the only tiny advantage I can see for that system.

@rzxv04: Something like 10000 points gets you a month of game pass ultimate. Play 3 different gp titles in a day, get a daily reward. Get 3 daily rewards, get a weekly reward and so on.

Use bing as your search engine for points and they begin to rack up to the point that you can get game pass, Xbox live, eaplay, xcloud, game pass for pc and games with gold without paying a cent.

Really don’t care/mind about gamerscore tbh. I’ve had about a have dozen accounts with Xbox over the years,because of different reasons? Never stayed with the same account. I guess my gamerscore would be a lot higher if I’d been with a single username/account?

The only thing that irks me about Achievements is when developers put in ones that are like worth 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc. Please keep them divisible by 5. Thank you. 😅
