It isn't much of a problem. Each platinum trophy is representative of its own game.If some people are using it as a way to increase their own total platinum trophies, it doesn't really makes a difference to the rest.
@Max_the_German well, I like trophies, but I don't play games just to earn trophies, some people are just going too far and companies take advantage of that. I don't think there's a way for disabling the trophies, but I think you can disable the notifications.
I like trophies because they give me goals to aim for, maximising my value from a game and keeping my interest in the long term. That being said, I only play games I enjoy and if any trophies become unenjoyed (speed runs, extreme difficulties) I just don't go for them. I have no interest in buying a game just for the trophies.
If only we could go back to the time where Ratalaika was \"ruining\" trophies with their easy lists. Sure the lists could be completed in 15 minutes, but at least there was an actual real game too, unlike what's being released today.
@Max_the_German the trophies in these non-games are only important to very few people, because they want to stay at the top of the leaderboard. Hakoom and Ikemenzi I believe have gotten Guinness world records out of it, I don't think anyone else has been so \"successful\".
I've always thought of the trophies as a nice little bonus for doing something obscure, or a chuck on the shoulder for completing a task/quest/challenge that took some effort. Piling up easy-to-get platinum trophies so that you can declare to the world \"I have ____ platinum trophies now!\" seems like an empty pursuit. I'm really not trying to be critical here, but how can it mean anything if you achieved a platinum by mashing buttons for a couple of minutes
I used to be a bit obsessive over trophies, but there's too many that are too time-consuming, too difficult or depend on playing hours of online modes. So now I just platinum games that I actually enjoy getting trophies in.
@PenguinLtd Same. I used to be a bit obsessive about trophies and achievements too. I haven't completely given up hunting, I'll still look at a roadmap first and get as many in one playthrough or a reasonable amount of time after. But I no longer obsess over getting the platinum/1000 GS and only go for it in games i'm really enjoying that also respect my time, most don't sadly.
Trophies/achievements are like the bells and whistles of the casino world. Nothing more than noises to entice us to play more. And bragging rights, I guess. \"I platinumed bloodborne and you didnt, noob.\" It's not like we get a discount or gift certificate for reaching a milestone in trophies/achievements.
When achievements and then trophies first started there were some truly wonderful ones that fundamentally changed how you played a game, this gave you a better understanding and appreciation of the game and it's mechanics. They still exist but are rarer. A few classics include:
Trophies, when done well, can make you feel like you explored everything your game has to offer. That's why typically when I platinum one I feel like it's finally \"done\", I can put it on the shelf and comfortably say \"yes, I experienced every single thing in that game.\" That and I can always look back at my list and look through this virtual gallery if gaming experiences I've had. I used to be way more into hunting back in the PS3 era but now I see them as a companion to excellent games, again...when done well. This is why I would like trophies for the PS1 & PS2 games, It helps with replayability and feels like a new challenge is added on top of what is already there.
I am not a trophy hunter by any means-I have 16 Plats., and I have been gaming extensively for much longer than trophies have been a thing. I play a game until I am done with it, and if I have a Platinum it means I either got it by accident just playing or there was only a trophy or two left when I finished the game.
That said, I do enjoy trophies a lot. They are a good diary for what you did in a game to look back on later. Sometimes they encourage me to try things in a game I did not think of. And sometimes they cause a funny moment-I am not going to spoil it, but I recently did something in the Ascent that I have done in every video game possible for years and an achievement finally popped for it. I could not stop laughing.
What I absolutely do not care about is my trophy ranking or anything like that. Perfectly fine if other folks do, but that is not why I game. So these easy Platinum trophies are fine with me if people enjoy them (I am certainly not deleting my Telltale game plats!), but they are not for me. I play games to have fun, and would still play them without trophies or achievements. Those are just a cool side benefit that adds a little extra to the game for me.
@get2sammyb i dont think there was any need to bring attention to it..just an article about easy trophies would have sufficed..no need to mention whatever religion is attached to the game at all..if you had not mentioned it in your article but one of us had brought attention to it then posts would be removed for unconstructive remarks or irrelevant topic etc,etc...you will probably remove this as flaming/arguing or discussing moderation..please try and utilise a bit more discretion thankyou..
Why would anyone buy these just for a trophy I think its just sad, I get people trophy hunting in games they enjoy and as some kind of achievement but this is neither and utterly worthless. Not only that it kind of devalues all other trophies
Who remembers when hannah Montana, terminator salvation and Prince of persia were considered the shamefully easy trophies How far we've fallen lol.I do like trophies though, they present an interesting gaming history of each person, even if size doesn't really matter any more.
I enjoy earning trophies/achievements...IN GAMES I ENJOY playing...I'm not going to buy a game just to get some or play games I don't enjoy....If you do this then you probably want to take a look at your life lol
Self proclaimed trophy addict here 13 years in, around 90 of my 280 plats are grubby radlanker plats. About 40 of those 90 where kind of fun, gave up on those no fulfilment for me. Doing hard trophies is such a buzz, other than that just gives me a goal to aim for. U do u if smashing out 100 cheesy plats is your fun crack on, probably devavles it for some people but such is life.
Me personally I don't really care if they are padding their trophies out because the game makes the difference in difficulty and all gamers know what hard and whats easy, if thats what they think is bragging rights, hey let them have it because its their money. But there are solutions to it but Sony is probably making a little money off them and it would hurt them to take away platinum on mini games and such because I don't think trophy farmers would buy them for bronze because it wouldn't bump the score up. And Im sure theres tons of families out there who would be upset if they quit making them because I know of several that are church going and like them because there is no violence and several for their toddlers. So in the game economy its always good to be diverse, because no matter what you do theres always going to be someone not happy or someone manipulating a system.
This trend got even worse when Sony reworked players' trophy levels and gave more weight to platinum trophies. Most Ratalaika games are masterpieces compared to the crap in the store now and decent games don't get noticed.
I used to have a mindset that anyone who earns these trophies aren't really \"good\" trophy hunters or the like. As I grew up I figured out I was being stupid and who really cares about what trophies people earn. I'm guilty of getting the platinum on some of these pay to earn platinums, and I used to think it was terrible I did that but I don't really mind now. At the end of the day we all have our own idea of fun so just let people do their thing.
If you're a member of the program, the points you accumulate can go towards games or can be converted into PSN currency. What kind of trophies and how many you have in your collection all contribute to how many points you'll be given.
100 silver trophies equals 100 points, 25 gold trophies gets you 250 points, and finally, 10 platinum trophies give you 1000 points. Bronze trophies are not included in the program. To get a title completely free, however, takes a lot of work. For example, 1,000 points only gets you $10 of PSN credit.
I would advise on games that have online trophies to check if the servers are still online or if they are able to be boosted/have boosting groups already as some of the PS3 or Vita servers may be dead online.
The Legend of Dragoon now has PS4 and PS5 trophies. Now that the game is available via PlayStation Plus Premium and to buy on the PlayStation Store, that is among the new updates to the game. There are 47 total, and one of them is a Platinum. [Thanks, Exophase!]
It is now less than a week until PlayStation's new tiered PS Plus system rolls out in certain parts of the world, and a slew of new details were revealed about it this week. The biggest headlines have gone to the collection of games officially revealed to be available through Premium, the service's highest tier, at launch. Buried in the blog detailing all of that is some additional information about its trials, revealing that they will include trophies and anything you achieve can be transferred over if you buy the full game.
In case you haven't heard about Premium's trials, as the feature hasn't been discussed as much as the various games included in each tier, they are effectively demos of some newer games included in your monthly subscription. The trials will last two hours, and as revealed in the latest PlayStation blog, you will be able to unlock trophies as you play, and anything you do can be saved and transferred across should you opt to buy the whole game. 59ce067264
