Re: Stopping Obsession of Trophies

Jul 2, 2013

I'm always shockd to hear people say that they won't buy a game because torphies are hard to get. I've been a completionist since the ps1 days, trophies just show off how much of one I am.

Well maybe platinum games is the only thing they find fun. Even if they do suck I was going through his list of trophies and he platinum Hannah Montana the game next to heavy rain. Weird right so yes there are many no lifers out there who play stupid games just to platinum them

I don't really know. I remember how I used to play with my PS One and PS2 games for fun. And when I discovered trophies, I developed an obession of them. Is there any cure for this? 


It could be worse, look at mine....(its old, I have ~150 more trophies now)

See with me I go quality over quantity. You can have 100 platinums but if all you have are games like hanna montana, up, cloudy with a chance of meat balls then all you do is play crappy games to get platinums on your account.

Trophies are awesome, unless the game is atrocious they give me reasons to replay it (or even best my performance) whereas before trophies I'd play a game and move on to the next just for finishing it~.

I'm sorry. I'm just really confused about many things now. I used to play just for fun. Now half the time I play just to achieve something. It's annoying. -_-'

The cure is, achive goals while having fun. For some people, squizing every trophy from a game is fun, if thats not your case, you should plan new goals instead of the ones declared by trophies. Like we did in the good old days before trophies were implemented.
