What kinds of Trophies do you like/hate?

32 replies 247 views Edited May 10, 2013

I love trophies and try to platinum whenever the requirements are reasonable. 

But I hate trophies that: 1) Involve TONS of multiplayer grinding

                                           2) Require pointless tasks 

                                                Ex: Go to the lowest point in Prince of Persia

                                           3) Involve collecting things that are ONLY collected for trophies and for no in-game purposes. 

                                                Ex: Bags in Mirror's Edge

My favorite trophies are ones where getting platinum mostly means doing every side quest, main quest, and finding all collectibles.

Hate: Online trophies, especially 'reach level 50' or '1,000 MP kills/victories' type trophies.

 

Love: Like you, the ones for completing quests (main or side), and collectibles, as long as those collectibles have some use in the game, such as part of a quest/mystery (ie Uncharted: Golden Abyss), or powering up energy or stamina bars (ie inFamous).

I agree with the online trophies. Specifically ones such as Homefront where it required you to kill an enemy by bailing out of a helicopter and having that helicopter hit and kill an enemy player. I don't mind some of the leveling ones as long as the game is fairly active. 

 

I love stat accumulation trophies as well as quest / side quest ones. Fallout 3 / New Vegas come to mind with such trophies. For instance, you get trophies for doing 10k damage with melee, 10k damage with guns, etc. etc. They also do a lot of side quest missions that will cause you to explore areas that you previously probably would not have.

I love trophies that revolve around the story or even doing all these little things in a game. Sometimes a trophy can let you experience something in a game that you migh miss otherwise.

 

However I hate Online trophys. Having to play/win 100 or more online matches or get a certain amount of kills or something is aggrivating.

I find collectible trophies cool, but I hate when you have to reach the highest multiplayer level, especially when you can't get into that game a lot. I'm wanting to buy Tomb Raider (the new one), but I am not going to bother trying to reach level 60.

I have only played a couple matches on Tomb Raider, it was laggy as H-E double hockey sticks.  It looked like players were teleporting.  There's like 15 multiplayer trophies, such a waste, they could have utilized them single player.

Pick up The Walking Dead for an easy platinum, not to mention a fantastic game.  Not the TV show version The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.

Online Trophies by far..... even MP trophies that you need DLC for in order to get.


I tried Platinuming Max Payne 3.... But I'll never be able to because 1) I suck at it online and 2) Because I suck online, i'll never be able to reach level 50 3)because the game has been out for about a year or more some gametypes for MP are never populated anymore 4)playing with dev's trophy will never happen because lets face it.... they're hardly ever announcing they'll be online.

Furiously Chaosing

I get you so horked up
