How do you feel about trophies that require online play?

I personally steer clear of them, unless it’s a game I generally enjoy and know there’s active members. Else it’s a ball ache.

Companies like Ubisoft have made their online trophies much easier to handle with their newer games.

 

In the past you had lists like Far Cry 2 and Crysis 2 which had absurd online trophy requirements. Play an online match with 16 people? Do practically everything in Crysis 2? Nuts.

 

Nowadays you get lists like Far Cry: New Dawn which has one sole online trophy. Honestly you should just make it entirely single player, but I guess there's a few people out there who enjoy the online in New Dawn.

If I can I will avoid any game that has online trophies or even trophies that need you to increase the difficulty level for a second playthrough or even game+ modes.

I don't mind multy playthrough's or even game+ modes just think putting trophies out for them is a cheap shot.

I used to never mind them but with all the stories about hackers auto popping accounts I’m inclined to avoid them unless I really trust the environment and game.

My profile is littered with games where I have 100% of the single-player trophies, and 0% of the multiplayer trophies. It's my biggest barrier to platinums. I tend to buy games a few months after their release when they're on-sale, by which point the multiplayer has often completely died off and moved onto another game.

 

I don't mind boosting but it usually doesn't help with the really grindy issues. Boosting alone won't get you to level 100 in GTA Online, and frankly, I have other games I'd much rather play.

When you buy old anime fighting games like me you just accept that your probably not getting the plat.

Good news is that games like ps3 blazblue and similar mostly have servers that are still alive. I'm just too shy to boost them.

I avoid buying games that have trophies requiring me to play with others.  Online features are fine, but I'm not into needing to depend on another person to earn my trophies.

I generally find online trophies fine for the most part. Games with online trophies that are single player that simply require an internet connection without needing any interaction with other players like Lollipop Chainsaw's 'International Zombie Hunter', or Metal Gear Solid V's 'Deterrence' and 'Disarmament' are ok. I also find trophies that require co-op to be pretty fun most of the time. PvP, on the other hand, I usually don't enjoy it as much as co-op but I'll go through with it if a game's 100% requires it. But then even PvP turns into a "co-op" session if you decide to boost. With that said, what I don't like is that every online trophy has a countdown towards being unobtainable and I think that's the worst part, especially if you're a completionist. This also kinda "forces" me to have to prioritize these kinds games over others, which I feel I shouldn't have to for any kind of reason. I guess a bright side to this is that you're once obtainable now unobtainable online trophies become more "valuable" to have, like having that Michael Jordan rookie card that's no longer in print. One thing's for sure is that I won't avoid a game with online trophies that have potentially great single player, in particular story driven games, IF they're still attainable. Otherwise, I would consider using an alt account for games not started yet with unobtainable trophies since I try to avoid having unobtainables on my main account. I'd have to be really interested in the game though for me to deviate from my main account for a time.

It depends on what game tbh. I don’t like online trophies for games that are focused on the singleplayer like Tomb Raider and Uncharted. If a game like Call of Duty and Battlefield has online trophies, then thats fine.

I don't mine online trophies at all if the game is online only. 

 

What I do mind however, is online trophies baked into mostly single player games where there is no option to earn the trophy entirely offline. So long as there is a 100% legitimate way to earn it offline (even if it takes 5-10x the time it would if you just did it online), then you can add as many as you want for all I care.
