I don’t care about trophies/achievements at all as 90% of them are only obtainable by performing tedious and mundane tasks that have no added value to a game whatsoever and the rest are story or progression based which everyone gets without doing anything special besides just playing the game. Moreover actually getting them nets you exactly zero reward. I’ve completed Uncharted 4 with a 4% trophy completion rate, and I couldn’t care less because I’ve seen everything anyway. And then there’s the ‘hidden trophies’, which is the dumbest idea ever. Everyone interested is just going to look up a full list because who is going to endlessly try out all kinds of random stuff and hope they stumble upon a hidden trophy? The percentage rates of most non-story based trophies, that are also unlikely to be accidentally attained, are also always so low that it proves hardly anyone really cares about them, and that there are actually only a relative handful of ‘trophy hunters’ out there.

Anyway rant aside, by your definitions I’d be a combination of ‘Master of their Trade’, but without the trophy hunting, and ‘Story Gamer’.

In PS4 you can just click square after opening the hide trophy and it'll give you a description. It is just hidden so you won't see it without wanting or getting so you aren't spoiled.

And the good thing about the trophies is that you can check the trophy for completing the story and verify how many people completed against total people who played...
This way you can discover that God of War was amazing even on the completion rate. At the time I checked it was like over 80% of owners have finished it, and if you check trophies regularly you'll discover that is very uncommon for even a great game to go over 33-50% range of completion.

You know, it is kinda funny.  I have been gaming since trophies first got added during the PS3 days.  Until I figured this out, you have no idea how mad I got trying to figure out how to see the trophies if they were not automatically unlocked through the story.  It just seemed like a bother to google it too.

 

You know when I figured out that you could do that?  A few weeks ago when I was considering getting the Plat for Horizon Zero Dawn when I accidentally hit the wrong button with a hidden trophy highlighted.  XD

Just depends on the game. Most games I just go through the story and pick up some trophies on the side if they seem fun to get. If I really love the game and I'm still having fun I'll go all the way to the platinum.

I discovered the same way, and also hatted that it was hidden and there was no indication of how to show it...

So for games I wanted to plat I would look at a guide, but for most I would just say "piss off"

Master of your trade.

Dedicates a lot to a single (or few) games to polish and be among the best.

And congrats for the dedication. I know I don't have this level to keep on the same game

It is an addiction. First I have said : ok.."4 hours would be decent".

Then : "damn...A bit more and I am in the top 8"..."ok, let's try 2h50...2h45...2h40...Oh the first is not so far, I could push a bit more...

It is endless : you are still improving, and you can not stop or you would lose all the skill hardly cumulated.
