Your ranking means nothing

In my opinion games like my name mayo and stacking multiple country versions of the same game should not count to the your rank, if psnp at least only alow 1 platinum per game it whould be a good thing

The world is a simulation in an infinite procedurally generated universe, people never landed on the moon and 911 was an inside job.

I just enjoy playing good games, completing trophy lists and pushing myself to the limit and beyond. The higher rank is just a positive side effect of that. However, there is no point in bashing people for having fun leveling their rank. If that makes someone feel better after having a really rough time: let them. Games are - in the end - there to be enjoyed, after all.

 

? Who bashed anyone in this thread? Why did you even quote me? I simply said that I don't care about the ranking and never did. The amount of platinums and games on a profile however is something I find interesting.

I was talking about OP. I'm actually agreeing with what you said, if that was not clear enough.

No harm done. I thought the "hear hear" was an indication that I concur. ;)

I don't really care about psnprofiles country/world rank.

 

I'm a pretty high rank on my country leaderboard, but that's because my country has only a population of 17 million.

I personally don't focus on the rankings or anything like that, but I do like seeing those trophies pop in the corner. I usually just play a game once through without trophy hunting, but will go back and look through them once I beat the game for the first time to gauge it. I don't have too many games, but I enjoy them and the trophies are a nice little way to get more out of the ones I have. I don't aim for plats, but if it's a game I really love and they don't require DLC or online play, then it's fun to try.

 

Though it doesn't mean much to me, it does to others, so it's a personal preference and goal for some. For example, I'm doing Heavy Rain right now, and am having a really fun time going for the platinum, as it really fleshes the game out and lets me see all there is it has to offer. But then I have games like Red Dead Redemption (the first one) and GTAV; I pretty much did all of the offline trophies, but can't get the online ones, so I'm stuck at like 50-55% for those. I think I only have like 6 plats (lol) but I love all 6 of those games.

 

Anyway, yeah, rankings don't matter much to me, but it's good seeing it green. I don't use this site for that feature, but as a nice way to see my game and trophy collection. If others have the time and ability to raise through the ranks and enjoy it, then that's fortunate for them, and that's obviously how they invest in their games and have fun. ^^ If you don't like the leaderboards/ranking, just ignore it. That's what's nice about gaming; many different ways to enjoy it for many different kinds of players.

You like to talk a lot of puffed-up shit and this is just another trivial thread of yours.

 

Still, you're right. But that's what the rarity lb is for. As you know, btw.

I am considering quitting when I’m around 10,000 - 12,000 trophies

 

Please don't let that be an empty promise.

It is stupid to say people who have a hobby what they waste the time. Trophy hunting is just a hobby. Same hobby as collecting post stamps or coins. I admit what people like you who collect everything including common trash feel themself unhappy but those who got some rare things are very proud

I stopped caring about the leaderboards when I realized that trophy selling is fine with the leaderboard rules. So technically the leaderboard isn't meaningless it's just not hard to get on top when you have money. Any millionaire could get on the first place within a month without violating the leaderboard rules.

I mean, you don't need skill for skipping hundreds of visual novels. You just need time and money. Literally anyone could be number 1.

Make sure trophy hunting is a passion and no addiction!

Totally agree with you about this point.

Which aspect of trophy hunting "means something"? It's a way to have fun and enjoy games. It's a hobby.

 

Every time you feel obliged to argue about which part of trophy hunting "matters", "means something" or is "important", just imagine people having the same argument about model trains to help yourself understand how ridiculous it sounds.

You’re right. I honestly don’t care about rankings. I’m enjoying playing video games.

It's videogames my dude. It's not supposed to have deeper meaning than entertainment. And I pity the fool that thinks videogames are deeper than such. (shout-out to the gaming media. You're useless.)

As much as I am loathe to admit it, my ranking on the leaderboard matters to me.  While I care nothing for reaching the top (an impossible feat since I would be aiming to do it on my own and I lack the talent to plat the more difficult games), I would like to reach the top 10 percent of the standings.  It would be nice to be ranked that high, but it isn't something I think I'll achieve anytime soon. On the other hand, I have earned a lot of trophies. 

 

On July 20, 2017 I had 31 trophies total, none of which were plats.  Then I picked up Tales of Berseria and started playing.  During the course of playing that game I discovered this site and became interested in trophy hunting.  I now currently currently have 1,005 trophies as of the writing of this post.  Eighteen of those trophies are plats.  To be quite honest, I feel proud of that achievement.  In few months shy of two years, I have earned 974 trophies.  It's been fun.

Your statement implies meaning. 😛
