Are you a trophy hunter, or a completionist?

I guess I am a bit of a hunter but more than anything I am a game collector that enjoys trophies and couldn't care less about being a completionist (Obviously).

I'm a little bored, so i figured I'd create an interesting topic. Trophy hunters are people who play games until they reach either their platinum or the 100% mark. And usually once completed they toss it away and never look back.  Meanwhile, completionists play games to their fullest while collecting everything there is to collect, beating everything there is to beat, and completing everything possible within the game. Whether it be all treasure chests in the assassins creed series to all of the time-trials in sly cooper. Usually across all gaming platforms. I also have a small question for trophy hunters. Would you still play games as much if there weren't trophies? And if so, why?

 

 

For me, im a completionist, and i play across all platforms. My goal as a completionist is to simply see what the game has to offer, and to play it to the fullest. I'm also a purist, meaning that i play through games by myself without using exploits, hacks, or even collectable guides (to an extent). And it honestly increases the satisfaction of finding a secret tenfold. I typically stick to games that i find enjoyable, and ive been thankfully lucky enough to never experience a game that is truly terrible. :D

Trophy hunter, i know there are varied types of trophy hunters but i am the kind that likes playing alone, and playing game franchises from beginning to end, a game has to have a trophy list for me to play now which made me stop playing on PC and drop the Xbox entirely...Uncharted for example, i didn’t buy the games until the Nathan Drake Collection dropped on PS4 which gave me the opportunity to play the trilogy and the 4th game, now i am going for the Vita game and the cards game, i am one of those people who has to play any game in the franchise and the games have to have a trophy list (even one trophy per game is enough for me to buy it) otherwise i wont think about the game twice!

Completionist. Not so much with grindy trophies, but always with difficult games. I do not consider myself a trophy hunter in terms of quantity - I really don't care if I'm level 10, 15, 20, 30 or whatever. All I care about is the reward of the final result of earning 100% for a game.

Completionist. It's always nice to get the perfect save regardless of console.
That being said I won't waste my time if I disliked the game, even if I loaded it on my profile.

I'd like to think of myself as both :3

I sometimes can't believe it's been three years since I started this thread. I was in high school sitting at home procrastinating instead of finishing my homework when I wrote it. I played a whole lot of games back then. Now-a-days I can't stand either trophy hunting or completing games. I just play what I like. It's weird to think I'm the exact opposite of what I used to be. And I feel better for it.

Human , I try to enjoy everything I do and always laugh. Respect those that deserve it, call out those that don't and enjoy life to the max. Guess the trophies just follow

Well it really depends on the game I guess...sometimes the platinum is enough and I'm content even though I haven't gotten 100% completion. However, If I really enjoy a game I try to complete everything, even if it's not trophy-related. For example, despite the fact that I got all Uncharted 3 trophies, I'd like to complete the legend sets (which are treasures that have nothing to do with trophies).

I'm both. But  I'm also using trophy hunting as an "excuse" to buy other (simple) games. Before I was looking to get more trophies or a higher completion %, I would've never played games such as the telltale games or 101 ways to die, or one of my all time favourites now, life is strange. Before I actively started looking for trophies, my main games consisted of GTA, battlefield, COD, skyrim and fallout. Basically just AAA games. I found a lot of cool games due to trophy hunting and a few great bargains as well. Games I wouldn't have touched otherwise.Besides that, I like getting 100% on a game, and working a bit on my backlog at the same time, but I'm not actively looking for a 100% completion. Hopefully one day I'll get it above 90% but with games such as BF hardline and blackops III, and the (hidden game on my profile) neverwinter, I know I will never get the 100%.

I am a 100% trophy hunter completionist.

 

I know what I want to play and when I play it I go for 100%

 

And if anybody wants to bitch about it, you can kiss my hairy monkey butt.

Don't think I qualify for either term. I'm just a gamer through and through. I play lots of games and play the ones I enjoy a lot more.

I'm neither.  I just play games.  If I like the game I'll go for the platinum.

Unless it’s a game I really like, I just 100% the trophy list and be done with it.

Trophy hunter.  Once I have all the trophies I can achieve, I never go back to a game.  It just doesn't seem productive to continue to play something, when I could be playing something else WITH TROPHIES.  My one caveat is, however, that I have to enjoy the game.

I used to be a hunter and care less about average completion  , But as I joined PSNProfiles which gives us so many statistics like average completion  , my inner whore has been awakened !

Will I Am A Platinum Hunter But First Enjoy Every Moment Of The Game You Play Before Focus On Getting The Platinum This Is The Way Every Trophy Hunter Should Be

I never go for the platinum, sure it's nice to finally complete a game 100%, But I'd rather f- around and do stuff rather than work for the trophies. I usually play a game for 10 minutes-1 hour then play another game, then come back to it, etc. Never really sat down and played a game 100% in one sitting.

I'm a trophy hunter.  Gotta get those plats. 😁

However, as of late, I have been going to my completed games and buying the DLC to get as close to 100% as possible.  I am not looking into any new games as of now.

Definitely a completionist now. I mean, a lot of the games I own require that go get the platinum any.

I never used to be in the PS1/2 era. It was only after I bought a PS3 I got a desire to explore every last inch of a game before I moved on to the next.
