What if Trophy Guides didn´t exist ?

80 posts in this topic

It wouldn't be called guides, but there would still be people explaining how to get trophies.

For the most part I don't use the guides. Unless it's a real pain in the ass trophy that I cannot figure out.

I'd probably never unlock the majority of secret trophies without guides. But it's guides that got me into collecting trophies and achievements in the first place.

I would spend alot of money on guide books  :rolleyes:

It's not just trophy guides that wouldn't exist but gaming sessions for boosting wouldn't exist either making online trophies nearly impossible to obtain

Originally through when I was an Achievement Hunter on Steam I just played through the games then would see what I had left to get and would try and work out how to get them, but now using these guides it's a lot more simpler now haha

I don't know what we would do without guides. I'm pretty sure we would run around like headless chickens trying to find every collectible. Im glad we have the internet!...but at the same time i'm not lol

I use trophy guides for two oppertunities. Or guides in general.

Before I buy a game I always look how hard the platinum is. That made me skip Injustice (Wich got to PS+ anyways)

The other time I use them is when I try to get an hard Platinum or when there is alot of missable trophies..

But to be honest, I think I wouldnt get that much platinums without trophy guides anyways :P

Someone would make them, but I think people were more determined to 100% games by themselves in the old days when having a computer/internet was a rare thing and you found game guides only on gaming magazines. :)

Instead of a week or a month it would take a year to platinum difficult games ^^

On those games that i´m not familiar with and don´t know yet if I buy or not, I do the exact same thing xD

I would have devastated 3-4 years back when i started hooring trophies and probably i would'nt had even started doing that without guides. But for last couple years, i have only platted few games now and then, and mostly new and just published games before any real guide is even out. So doesnt affect me now much, except for some evil collectibles. Getting those i still use guides, because my patience can get really low sometimes.

 

Also since now if i want to plat some game, i want to do it by really playing, not using any exploits. Yes i have used some exploits to plat a game years back when i was living my "trophies are so nice, i want more" times. What guides can give is collections of exploits and legal cheats to get difficulty trophies easily.

 

Like little of topic mention, my new all time favorite game Dragon Age Inquisition, that i been playing a whole month now. Great guide in this site, except couple pages detailing all exploits u can and can't imagine. In a game that is all about exploring and story, and where nightmare difficulty really is about 3-4/10 difficult? People really need to use those in that game? Great and puzzles me, but that just me.

I wouldn't be effected, since I never use trophy guides.

It wouldn't make a big difference since most games explain the requirements.

Some games (I think a Streetfighter) uses pretty vague explanation.

 

I have a few games platinum before ever using a guide: Tekken 6, AC 2, Godfather 2, perhaps a few as well.

Nowadays I hardly use guides, but sometimes.

It would simply take us a larger amount of time to unlock all trophies, especially the collectibles ones. Unless you're a some kind of deity of course...

I'll take that as a compliment.

It's exactly what I did.

Games are not developped to be solved only by use of guides.

And somebody has to write guides, somebody has to be first.

Not implying I wrote a guide on AC2.

I think it's safe to say there'd be a lot more people with a lot less platinums.  Myself included.

I would say that I would continue to trophy hunt but would only have something like 40% completion. Some trophies can be complicated to get as their description can be confusing or worse, simply hidden. Most of the time I have no clue how to unlock these trophies unless I look at a guide. Especially if it includes some trophies that are glitched and how to avoid having them 'lock' and have to start another playthrough. Trust me, last thing you need after 120+ hour playthrough is to have one trophy not pop, requiring yet another 120+ playthrough just for that trophy.
