Would you play more Nintendo games if they had achievements?

Apart from Mario Maker 2 I don't really play Nintendo anymore. I used to be a great Pokemon fan but looking at the latest games the franchise has really lost its edge. Achievements wouldn't change that. I have a dream however that one day I will play an official release of Pokemon Yellow on Playstation and earn its Platinum Trophy.

Temtem is a good substitute!

If every console had the ability to earn every achievement ie; can earn trophies on XBox, vice versa, I'd probably have every console.
I just like getting my trophies!

No. I'm only interested in a select few exclusives from Nintendo. Maybe, if enough japanese games begin to jump ship to Nintendo. Achievements wouldn't really change anything for me personally.

To be honest. Achievements are the only reason i play games these days. Just no interest in most AAA games and all these broken, unfinished, micro transaction filled copy past games just turn me off. 

 

Disgusts me what my childhood passion has become. Corrupted by corporate greed.

 

End rant.

I play what I want to play on Nintendo platforms, some exclusives are just too inviting. I've even chosen the Switch option over trophy supported versions of certain games because I wanted it handheld. I'd probably have opted for the Switch version of more stuff if it wasn't for the global bastard altering the playing field.

I typed version a lot.

I’d only buy Mario party’s/Mario games if I ever was gifted a Nintendo console. I’ve totally lost interest overall in Nintendo though. Haven’t owned a console from them since the N64. Lol

No.

 

It was why I bought Hollow Knight for Switch. So the trophies wouldn't bother me. There aren't really a lot of games anymore that I've wanted for Switch recently which is unfortunate but there's just been nothing that has interested me.

Honestly, yes I would.

 

Even before I cared about trophies I would go for in game achievements.

I think I just like having a checklist of things to do in games in general and trophy lists are essentially just that.

Trophies aren't quite the only reason why I prefer Playstation over Nintendo.

 

There's also the question of horsepower.

 

All games available on both Sony and Nintendo consoles fare better on Playstation. The only games I have for the Switch are the exclusives.

 

There's also the issue that the PS Store's sales are far more inviting.

I play a good amount of Nintendo games, and have for a long time. I would play more multiplats on Switch (like some indies and such) if there was an achievement system. I get virtually every multiplat on PS4 for trophies and because it's beefier hardware.

 

I really want Nintendo to add achievements. It made sense not to have them on Wii. But their omission was felt on Wii U. And they feel very absent on Switch. Fingers crossed Switch 2 adds them.

No, I'd play more Nintendo games if they were still as good as my rose tinted glasses remembers them being.

 

While the Switch has definitely had some great exclusives, I can't help but be disappointed by it to this day, despite all its hype. Probably doesn't help that so many games on the Switch are just Wii U ports, so I've already played a good chunk of the "exclusives" often recommended on Switch, on older hardware. And a few of its new titles don't feel much different from their previous entries (e.g. Splatoon 2 and Yoshi's Crafted World), and not in a good way. Really wish it had a new Mario Kart, 2D Mario and/or Pikmin.

I'm glad that they don't have an achievement/trophy system. I've been enjoying games on my Switch much more than on PlayStation.

I pretty much play games on PS only to collect trophies and not for enjoyment anymore for the most part.

 

Not worrying about trophies while playing is really relaxing~

The only Nintendo games I enjoy are Pokémon. I will admit Mario Kart is enjoyable when friends/family are over. This is the reason why I haven’t purchased a Nintendo Switch, I wouldn’t use it much.

No.

 

Only if they could be played on PlayStation and added trophies to my account.  I don’t want another account to keep up with lol.  Never had an Xbox either.

Nah, I only care about Playstation trophies.

 

I think it's good to have a platform where you don't have to worry about them

My sentiments exactly.

To be honest no, I would love to own a Switch and just play some of thier games at my own pace, when it comes to trophies/achievements the only games I care about them are ones on my PSN account, even then sometimes I feel like I worry about trophies too much when really they are just internet points really.

One of my all time favourite games is Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. I have completed it fully so many times and would love a reason to do so again. Maybe if it was somehow released on PS4 that would be the dream lol

Nope. I will buy a Nintendo console once they have games I care about and a powerful console to run them. I'm just not a fan of Zelda or Mario and I stopped playing Pokemon after 3rd generation.

This is how it is for me as well. I buy almost all multiplat games on Playstation but if the Switch had an achievement system there are games I'd get there instead. Mainly ones I consider fun for handheld play like RPGs with grinding or games with lots of reading like Ace Attorney.

 

I just like account based achievement systems in general, I have 70k gamerscore on Xbox as well but I tend to only buy console exclusives on Xbox so that number has been fairly stagnant these past few years.

Probably not since I play my switch fairly regularly anyways, and it's a nice break of not having to care for doing extra for something that I wouldn't normally do in a playthrough.
