Do people still care about Trophies / Achievements ?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Do people still care about Trophies / Achievements ?

Just curious if trophies or achievements are taken into consideration when buying games and/or consoles??

Personally at first when I got my 360 I was hooked on the whole Achievement things and was renting crappy games from Blockbuster just to get easy 1000g games to build gamerscore.  I will admit I was pretty addicted to my gamescore for a good while, but the novelty did ware off for me.  With that said, basically now I couldn't care less about achievements/trophies and just want to play a good solid fun game with unlockables and stuff like that....Maybe something cool in the game for 100% the game.

I'd say so

Yes, for sure. I'm a total achievement/trophy whore, lol. It makes me sad that Nintendo has no achievement/trophy system, and that Steam still hasn't improved there's by adding an overall metric.

I don't care about achievements/trophies anymore.

It's a meaningless metric on how much a 'gamer' you are.

I far prefer in-game rewards working a game to a certain level of completion.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Not at all...I think there are so many interesting things that can be done with achievement systems but nobody is doing them :(



Take into consideration when buying? Absolutely not. Care? Yes, in some degree.

Mine is the exact same case. In the end I realized I've missed so many good games because I was following a walkthrough for Space Chimps or some crap like that.

Now I have trophy notifications turned off on both PS4 and Vita, and I really don't even know how many trophies I have, and I never check to see what trophies there are.

I guess I cured my OCD, cold turkey style.



I sure do; just don't have the time to get as many anymore due to real life
