No one should ever feel ashamed of doing something they love. So what if someone has some easy platinums? They still sat there and played the game, they still put effort in, they still had the motivation to work towards whatever their goal is.
As for @patrickogorman19. So let's assume I take your comments personally. Are you going to sit there and tell me I'm not a trophy hunter despite restarting Skyrim from scratch three times over after it glitched out on me pretty far into the game? Despite the fact I sat driving mile after mile round an oval track in GT6 until I'd reached 7,903? Despite S Ranking every mission in The Phantom Pain using my own solutions and racking up over 400 hours on my way to the platinum? None of those tasks, which took pretty extreme amounts of motivation, patience and in the TTP case, skill make me a trophy hunter because they didn't result in an ultra rare platinum?
Let's take a look at my ultra rares. I have amatuer radio operator from Metal Gear Rising: Revengence in there. Do you know what I did to achieve that? I sat and listened to most of the radio conversations about a story I was enjoying anyway. By your logic, me sitting there and doing nothing somehow brings me closer to being a trophy hunter than any of the above because I got an ultra rare. Would you care to rethink, because your reasoning is all over the place.
Also Patrick, what happens if I achieve an ultra rare platinum but so many people earn it, it becomes rare? Is that it? I'm no longer a trophy hunter because other people happened to play the game? I have to go earn a new ultra rare platinum to prove my worth?
And finally, I've seen some people complain about the quality of the easy games they've platinumed. Yet they sat down and played it anyway knowing full well they probably wouldn't like it. To sit there, and play something you don't like because you love trophy hunting...that's pretty fucking admirable if you ask me. If you're willing to suffer for it, that's above and beyond and I applaud you.
I'm glad most of us are here to talk about and celebrate doing what we love without judgement. We're trophy hunters, and we're fucking awesome.
