Forums - Sony Discussion - Trophies have nearly ruined gaming for me.

Tagged games:

I just find it really hard to play games that dont have them :S even though I stopped whoring them over a year ago now and seldom look at my trophy list I just get this weird feeling that if it doesnt have tophies its not really worth playing.

For example I wanna go back and play some classics but they thought of them not having trophies puts me off, I thought if I ignored them that feeling would go away but it hasnt....

 

I enjoyed gaming alot more when they weren't around -.-

"What are trophies again?"

Thats the philosophy to take.

I hate trophies and achievements, they actually detract from the experience for me.

First off, it's distracting. Completely pulls me out of the game when an ugly out-of-place notification pops up in the middle of a game.

Plus it's patronizing. It treats me like I'm a three-year old getting pats on the head every time I do something right. "Oh, you beat that boss you HAD TO BEAT ANYWAY? ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!" "Oh, you killed x number of generic goons? YOU GOT A TROPHY!" I don't need to be spoonfed, thanks.

They're one of the most worthless gimmicks to come out of the 7th gen.

I hope Nintendo never makes an equivalent, or if they do, that they can be turned off.



Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say a ground-up Wii U Zelda won't release in 2014. (Hyrule Warriors doesn't count)
Bet with fatslob: I say Watch Dogs Wii U will be technically inferior to the 360/PS3 versions according to Digital Foundry.
Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say Monolith Soft's X won't release in 2014.

Nope, you're mistaken.  Nobody cares about trophies.  

Seriously though, I know exactly what you mean.  Even if I like a game, I feel empty almost if it doesn't have any trophies.

You can turn off trophy notifications, so your entire comment is pointless.

This lol



You know, you can turn off trophy notifications if you dislike them.

I personally love them, especially if they are challenging (I did 100% Platinum stuff like DoA5, UFC, MvC3, Super SFIV).

I like going for trophies but I don't usually get out of my way to get them, I only really try to 100%/Platinum my favorite games (usually fighting). I do play games without achievements and trophies but I'd rather have them.

Having a list of everything I ever played on PS3/PSV/X360 (soon PS4 and XBONE) is really nice even if my completion rate sucks.



What is the deal with trophies? Do yu get anything?

I like getting unlockables for hard work. Like old games.

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

Not pointless at all. I wouldn't have to turn them off if they weren't off-putting, spoonfed shite.
