Your weakness in trophy hunting.

547 posts in this topic

In no particular order:

 

Missable Trophies: If you're gonna have these kinds of trophies, have a GD chapter select!!

Multiple Playthrough Trophies: I rarely enjoy a game enough to play it once, but now I gotta play it again, ON A HIGHER DIFFICULTY!! Which leads to..

Difficulty Trophies: Give me the option to play at the hardest setting FROM THE BEGINNING!! Not afraid of a challenge, just let me do it in one play through.

Timed Trophies: These are just too stressful to me. Make me finish at the INSANE difficulty or collect a million Macguffins, just don't make me finish anything with a time limit.

 

Online trophies aren't terrible if they aren't a huge grindfest, but I am so slow finishing my games I am mostly afraid there will be no online support by the time I decide to go for the Plat. DOH!

Finishing a game and realizing I'm close to the platinum. That part in my brain that tells me I may as well get 'those last ones'.

This is how I started hunting trophies. I'm not a proper trophy hunter though. My weakness as a trophy hunter is sometimes I don't turn my Playstation on the whole weekend.

 

Still, trophy hunting has become a little hobby for me and it's brought me a lot of additional joy for my gaming.

I usually get bored of a game, put it on the back burner, and dont come back to it.  Whereas if I put the grind in earlier, I probably would have more platinums.

 

And online trophies.  Boosting them just feels cheap, (and boring), but I'm not good enough to get a decent amount of points on any game with ranks. 

 

(I'm usually in the bottom 5 of a BF4 match, with a K/D of about 0.2.  Lol.)

Mine would be... Going back to do clean up on older games.  It takes so much will power for me to get motivated to do that!

Remember guys, this is your personal weakness, not a rant about what you dislike.

My weaknesses

IM CHEAP: I buy almost exclusively used so any game with DLC or an online pass will never be completed by me.

Lack of Focus: I'll get to the end, get distracted by random side missions, then get distracted by other games and walk away. Can't count the number of games I've put in 30+ hrs, walked away, come back 6+ months later and finished in under 2 hrs.

Well..for starters..multiplayer trophies that require more than 2 players at a time, trophies that are dependent on other people and not neccesarly any skills whatsoever, Little Big Planet online trophies for example come to mind and fit this perfectly.

 

Surprisingly though, im actually not bad at all with grinding type trophies, some do test my patience (fighting online modes like Street Fighter IV and Blazblue that require ridiculous amount of onlne wins or matches) but with  enough dedication (and right boosting methods if neccesary) I''ll usually pull through them without too much of a hassle.

 

Also games that I really want to genuinely play for the experience rather than for it trophies, I try not thinking about the trophies but its hard for me not to think about them and distracts me sometimes from actually enjoying the experience  as im playing a said game, back before trophies were in games, no such thing was a weakness, now it is.

I hate luck based trophies and I do hate online trophies. I also hate when a game has multiplayer DLC like BioShock 2 - the online is like a ghost town. I hate grinding trophies as well. 

 

The feeling after you get that last trophy you hate though...

 

...is gewd...

I think being a completionist is a weakness in general when it comes to trophy hunting.

 

It can push you to buy DLC for a game your not really enjoying, put games off due to online etc. Have you grinding sections which just amounts to a waste of your day.

 

But its still an ace feature :D

Luck grinding trophies.  I have no real problems with general grinding (for example leveling up in a game).  But when it comes to luck as in find item from boss who takes 20 minutes to kill with a .01% drop rate then that gets irritating after a while.  Or any trophy in general that relies purely on luck like casino based trophies.

 

Certain multiplayer trophies turn me off as well, I'm more of a coop player than a competitive one.

Biggest Weaknesses thus far to be specific have been:

Batman Arkham challenges

Bioshock World's of Hurt time challenge

Dead Nation DLC

Beating the final boss in Sonic Episode 1 without getting hit

Beating Earthworm Jim without dying.


All of the above, plus "lets try to extend the time it take you have to play to get the trophies, DOUBLING the time of the game with repetitive "kill Adamantoise - get the loot you need? no! then reload save and try again 600 **************************ing times!!!! /rant

 

I will do this one day......

I found a really good strategy using a summon, debuffs, and enfire to take out the long guis really quickly and safely and with the right luck increasing gear you can get all the trapezohedrons pretty quickly.

Oh yes I especially hate multiplayer DLC also... I bought MAG DLC and didn't earn a single trophy at all.

100% mission completing not to be confused with 100% game completion. Im talking about trophies like Assassins Creed 100% mission constaints or GTAV Solid Gold.  These are worst to me than online trophies, I want to play through a game the way I want to not the way the game tells me to.  These are often the only thing keeping me from platinums.
