thumbs up. 

 

I do not even attempt to play this game without a little something to make me feel good enough to ignore all the stupid stuff and have fun.  Any time any of you see me on this game, I've ingested 2 hydrocodone 7.5 as I turned my PS3 on.  If I'm on for a while, I'll hit up another 7.5 every 90 minutes or so just to keep my mood up.  As with you, all legally prescribed.

 

I have an Alt account that I've been playing on for a week.  I pretty much play solo on it (have 6 friends on PSN friends list) and made the mistake of playing solo one day with no pills.   I played one game and had to turn it off.   70% of players are from South America with upload speeds that can only be measured in KBs.   Guys join games, kill every single one of their team mates then quit or get kicked for team killing one team mate twice.  

 

I live in the midwest.  I should never see clan tags that say BRA, PERU, GUAT, ARG, etc.   Sadly, that's all I see....game after game.

I live in United Arab Emirates, so the lag is more palpable in my case.  Drugs (again, legal) were the only way to tolerate this game.

 

One thing I won't miss is that I would actually play co-op arena legit most of the time, up to the point where a troll joins the game and teamkills over and over, or hog the idol.  Multitudinous grief reports do not help, and neither do tweets.   It is frustrating because the game is already painful as is.  That is the thing I'm most glad to leave behind.  They can enjoy trolling their broken game and I hope they stay there forever and disappear into oblivion and irrelevance.  Of course, I do not wish these trolls harm, but at the same time I don't think I'd be sad if they were afflicted by an unfortunate turn of event in their lives.

IMO this was more of a trophy hunting obsession problem than a UC3 mp problem.

The mp was flawed yes but it was not forced on you to play it as long as you did.

^Exactly

And most of these trolls are 9 year old kids who's don't spoil them and don't give a **bleep** about what they do. "Here, playing this game you want, as long as it makes you happy and keeps you occupied. I'm sure it's appropriate."

Yeah they're annoying, but after the fact, I don't sit around thinking about them.

Anyway man, I hope whatever hobby you get into next, you find more enjoyment along the way with it.

To be honest, the fact that your main complaint is trophies made the whole argument seem relatable only to people who care about trophies, and that's not everyone.

Trophies don't mean you like the game, or that the game's good. Vita's Welcome Park has trophies that people say are ridiculously easy but it still is, how do I say it, gimmicky **bleep**.

Games have this "stickiness factor". Some games just happen to be "sticky" for you even if it actually sucks (eg this game) and some happen to be "nonsticky" (or in a sense a crappy game) even if majority likes it (eg Skyrim).

Guy has a point.

 

The trophies for Uncharted 3 are quite possibly on par with that of Socom Confrontation. worst sets ever.

 

Someone should have been fired over that.

 

But the game itself? Eh.. Trophies aside it's enjoyable at times.

Oh the trophies are hell definitely. All trophies are hell to me. I never collect all treasures in SP, I don't do the easter egg trophies on purpose, etc etc.

In my opinion, trophies ruin this game.
