Is a 100% account worth it?

139 posts in this topic

If you have to ask, I would say no. It's only for people who want to have extremely tight control over the cleanliness of their profiles, and all it takes is one server shutdown, one glitched trophy, etc and that's ruined. I'd like to get my completion percentage higher but I'm not going to obsess over it, since I have a bunch of dead games on my profile I can't 100% even if I wanted to. And I really can't be assed to do DLC trophies on all my games; I usually just go for platinums and call it a day there.

And once again you are assuming my wealth. I am not rich, there were plenty of things I never bought back in the day and had to purchase them at a higher price. Gaming is a hobby, sometimes you have money to spend on that hobby and sometimes you don't. You seem to think people are choosing between food and a DLC here. If you don't have $20 dollars to spend on a DLC, you skip it until you can afford it later on.

 

If you can afford the system to play the game on, the game itself, and the internet bill to connect to PSN, you can buy a DLC here and there. Do that for the last 15 years and you'll have a large PSN account.

 

It's kind of funny that you brought the 33% discount as if it changes anything.

Here, the discount is 25 euros (Europe always pays  MUCH more, even after the currency  difference that Sony fails to  organize, games cost 10 euros more, with stuff like Demon's Souls base edition arriving at 90 dollars if bought in Europe, so yeah) which is roughly 29 dollars, and this is just for the first season pass, there's another season pass that costs 20 euros who also has trophies, 45 euros just to get the 100% on a single game  you already bought   (under a sale  mind you), hich also happen to be an almost 2 year old game, not to mention that, until 2019, Europe almost never had DLCs sales  and even in these sales, specific companies like Activision  take the piss.

I 'don't' have  the 45  euros to give to a DLCs just to fight OCD, I would never have it, even if I was a billionaire, as  gaming is an hobby with no renewal income  unless you're some youtuber or shit like that, and sure as hell, I don't want to reward a company that puts overpriced  DLCs, which outside of a very few exceptions, is a term loaded with a lot of baggage.

For me it isn't even possible to get 100% due to server closures or DLC's but I never strived for that. I just play what I want and try to get the platinum and possibly the 100% if it has DLC. I always felt this mindset of having an 100% account could limit what games you pick and play down the road but play how you want.

I see 100% as more of something to strive for if it's doable but it's more of an end goal.  I don't truly expect to ever have a 100% profile, but that isn't going to stop me from trying to get to that point.

I would say that a 100% completion profile looks somewhat manufactured and possibly includes many games that the owner of the profile would love to have played but chose not for fear of not maintaining that 100%.

 

Now whilst I think that's silly I also respect it. It's their profile they can do whatever makes them happy.

 

What I will say is I do think that some people might avoid playing certain games for fear of what others might think and thats where it all goes too far.

 

Firstly, I play games for me, I don't care what others think of my profile.

 

Lastly, you would be surprised how few people actually care about your profile anyway, they are too concerned about what you think of theirs...

In my opinion no,  the money factor of buying all the dlc, the stress factor of servers closing and avoiding games you will love just because the trophy list is hard or unobtainable makes it not worth it in my eyes.

And the 100% dream is so easily made impossible by things like a single glitch that appears because of a patch or dlc that the developers never fix. 

Or a broken dlc trophy which you could never have predicted happening when you first brought the game.

I love how a thread about a guy curious whether 100% accounts actually gave you anything or was just for a neat aesthetic turned into a whole debacle about the morality of completionists, rich-shaming people that are not even actually rich and quotes from movies, for some reason..

 

Round up the usual suspects, because I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore! 

 

I'll be back...

Classic PSNP moment. Never change.

 

Oversensitivity from those people at its finest over a hobby we love doing.

I will never be able to get 100% because of several servers closing but I have around a 94% and climbing slowly. I was around 64% when I joined Psnprofiles and wanted to be better. I focus on finishing anything I start now and get stuck sometimes on games and move on but I'll always be able to go back and finish. 

 

I thought about starting over years ago but thought better cause I would never want to grind some of these games again. Battlefield bad company I'm looking at you.🤨

It’s only you who can answer this question remember do what you like!


As for instance I like to play one game at a time and enjoy the feel when I 100% the game in the end.....I will never have 100% account but for me I’m happy with 95% and up at the end gaming is meant for fun no need to overanalyse and complicate such a things....go your own way!

 

This is an example of a profile that I like @Jasko_SOA. A lot of challenging platinums and good taste in gaming also high percentage of completion.

 

This is another 2 profiles @AsheBurns & @AsheRebel that are not as high in completion but it wouldn’t matter anyways since there is a lot good & hard games involved there.

 

So at the end it dosent matter really find your own joy and try new things to see what fits you best good luck 😉

Yeah, not replaying Uncharted with chubby Nate, thanks. 100% is not worth it at all. I very rarely look at other people's trophies (I'm narcissistic at that, and can you blame me when they are MY OWN achievements?), but if I were the type of person who looked at other profiles often, I'd pick profiles like my own and not like Hakoom's. Just like the most interesting F1 drivers in history are the triple world champions and not the fabricated ones from the modern ages, profiles are the same. People whom play what they want, and not twelve diferrent regional localizations of the same game. Hakoom couldn't be any more uninteresting to me. I even spelt his name wrong before editing this, that's how much I never pay any mind to him or to similar profiles.

I don't think it matters much other than self satisfaction, as no one else cares if you have a 100% profile or not. It would be a pity to avoid games that you know you would enjoy only because of their achievement lists. i have a few JRPGs i like but with very tough or grindy trophy lists, but I could never skip them just because of that so I don't bother about the 100% profile. Also, none of my gaming friends care about trophies and I'm sure people online don't care about anyone's trophies but their own ones. I think a profile should just represent you as a gamer and what games you like, rather than a bunch of easy plats from crappy games like Hannah montana just to have a 100% profile. It would make gaming a chore rather than something fun having to waste time on such games. You could always play on another account if you wanted, although your total number of trophies would be less on your main account.

It’s probably not worth it for the vast majority of ppl.

seems like everyone who ended up with 100% either hates themselves or just cherry picks tbh.


Id personally would like too have 100% one day but some of my games are pretty hard and I don’t know if it’s gonna change me in a very serious way.
