The only games that I felt fulfilling was max Payne, Warhawk, and socom confrontation a couple of others but those 3 were my top

If you play games to impress strangers online then fair enough to go for rare platinums. If you play solely for numbers to say "oooh look how many I have" then that's fair enough too. Each their own. I personally do both. But rarity itself has never been my main focus. My rare ones have just come naturally. I just like trophies lol

I prefer rarer since it's pretty easy to accumulate a plethora of platinums these days, at least if you play easy games intentionally. I prefer quality over quantity.

Personally I would rather the game be fun and that's all that really matters. 

 

If its ultra rare there's a high chance it just isn't very fun.

Rare.  That could signify some skill where total # of platinums just speaks to having a lot of time.

Personally my skills are very limited. So im normally happy whatever plat I can grab. If im able to grab a super rare plat, ill probably celebrate a bit and move on. Normally I just play for fun or whatever I feel. But it does feel somewhat good to see my PSN lvl grow. So I had been pushing a bit more super easy stuffs And let me just say some are very boring. It actually takes a whole new level of patience and perseverance skills. But I got no time to worry what others think of my cheap profile. Im happy thats all that matters....

I really hate this debate. It really doesn't matter in the long run.

Quality looks better when viewing profiles. But when it comes to my own plats, fun is all that matters.

I've always enjoyed doing both hard games and like a big rain of trophies from the easy slutty platinums on offer. As long as I'm enjoying it that's all that matters. If someone does look at my profile and thinks it's shit due to the fact that there are easy plats on there ah well. I'll not lose any sleep over it 👍

I agree with you. As long as your playing your games, collecting your platinums (both rare and common), then what does it matter in the end? Just have a good time doing it.

I came from the 360 era of achievement hunting where the higher your overall number the better. That said, because PS has platinum trophies, I think harder games are still pretty cool to go after if you're into them. I try to do a mix of both depending on how I'm feeling at the time. But regardless of platinum difficulty if I don't like a game, or I don't enjoy the grind to get a certain trophy, I'm gonna stop playing it even if it's an easy platinum (36 fragments of midnight for example). The thing I'll never understand about trophy hunters though are the people that only play games they can 100%. I cringe every time I see someone's completion over 95%. The saddest example of this is when people have separate accounts to play games on because they don't want to ruin they high completion account. Seems like they completely missed the point of playing games.

Your profile and your journey how you want to fill it in there's no right or wrong.

rarity is impressive, stacking rata shit and fast forwarding through visual novels you can't read to get trophies is just embarassing

I like the amount of plats because I also like the amount of trophies I get, and with every "pling" I get a little dopamine shot which makes my horrible social life a bit more acceptable.

I find rarer platinums more fulfilling, especially if it's due to difficulty or that is requires some kind of learning curve but I don't obsess over them and always make sure to play games I think will be (at least generally) fun which is how I'd describe the few hard ones I have gone for. I don't get bothered if a plat is above 5% but the lower the rarity (as an ultra rare) the more excitement I get. I always avoid games I'd play purely for having a very low or very high rarity where I'd be completey uninterested in the game otherwise.

 

I too don't get the appeal for hundreds of platinums and all these easy games and stacking (unless you genuinely enjoy the games of course) as it does seem like a waste of time when you could be playing something better. Maybe some people are just addicted? The ping sound effect has worn off a little over the years for me personally but I still find it so compelling/motivating for getting trophies in games.
