Depends on what clique you want to sit with at lunch. You got the 100%s. They think their elite like real life 1%ers. Then you got the Ultra Rares. Who snub their noses at anyone playing commoner trash. Weebos play all the anime games. Etc 

Then theres you, a sad onion man

Huh, I never thought about it that way. 

 

I like using Trophy Adviser, so I hide all the uncompleted crap I'm not working on.

The whole reason why I start one trophy in every game is because years ago even way before (Truetrophies) existed and even before Bean from TA made a "Bean Dive" I started all my xbox games (about 800 of them) as it gave me a complete profile with all the games on my list THEN I started to get tons of completions.

 

Another fun fact people dont know about my NekoRave account is I have 6 accs

 

1 on steam

3 on xbox

 

(both got hacked 2010 2012 recovered 2015 and NekoRaveX was made when I made NekoRave on psn)

 

*also I quit gaming in 2012 and sold ALL of my games since I redid all my achievements 2 fucking times lost everything had to restart did it again and lost that account after I redid all my games.

 

2 on psn

(SilencedNephilim I had for a year but I wanted a shorter name and couldnt change my name, and NekoRave which for 4 years i didnt play games I was working jobs and played here or there but I was not stable, 2018 in October is the first time I actually came back to spend an enormous amount of time on my account after losing everything irl and gaming wise. My goal has been to replay all the games I did in the past on my main account and make this account something im very proud of like my ultimate profile.

 

Theres reasons why ppl do things but starting all my games was my way of saying (hey I see you game i bought, you are on my account now, on my backlog edged into my profile, so when i start completing games in mass you will be on the list, as well as having a true completion percentage that reflects all the games I own.)

In my opinion:

- no Mayo-type games,

- high completion %,

- some difficult trophies, especially plats,

- many popular games along with these lesser known golden titles.

- Quality and Variety;

- Not too many very easy/fast platinums;

- A good completion percentage;

- Playing games you genuinely like.

One thing stands out in this discussion, and that is that everybody here has a way different standard about what a good profile is, and so at the end of the day, it doesn't even matter cause every viewer will set this differently (and generally to a standard that makes him/herself feel better about their own achievements)

 

No better proof that the only one who really cares about your profile is you...

 

Conclusion : like most things in life, it don't mean shit. And then we all die 😲

- completion rate

- ultra rare count

- difficulty of games platinumed?

 

I am only asking this so see what you guys think as trophy hunters :)

 

For me only matters the number of : -platinums 

-trophies 

-trophy levels. 

And I fully support Ratalaika, Eastasiasoft and Powgi games.

To be honest, I couldn't really give a rat's ass about what makes a good profile. Let people play what they want, however they want to play it.

 

However, I do know what doesn't make a good profile - and that is being stuck with trophy lists you have no intention of going back to. Some people say that your profile is supposed to be a record of your gaming history, but personally, to hell with that. I look at my profile as an extension of my physical collection, and I sure as hell don't want it to include games that are no longer part of that collection. Being able to hide games is a good start, at least I can look at my true collection and completion rate when I come to the site. Sadly, that is not the case when I look at my profile through the actual consoles. I'm not necessarily advocating for the ability to delete trophies (that might cause more trouble than it's worth), but at least let us hide our trophies from ourselves, Sony.

Very subjective thread but I'll try add my opinion.

 

I appreciate accounts with any kinds of completion percentage. Not everyones got the time to complete games constantly and with very limited time people may fancy one game, then when they have more time, start another.

 

When it comes to quality of the games and it's just plagued with the easy ones I tend to avoid, as long as there is some variety on there then that's all good. I don't mind stacks either as long as it's full length games. People have issues with stacks and I get it but if it's a full length game then it's not like you've just cheesed the leaderboards. I don't mind accounts with some easy games on there because some circumstances may be different. I have games on my account like that but I usually do something like that when I've just completed a long game grind. To get me back into the rhythm. Some people maybe like that as well. Been gone a while so they want to ease themselves into it or maybe they've just finished a 300 hour grind and want something to chill to. 

 

The other is if people are playing games they actually care about. Too many times I've seen people sit there and complain about a game they are playing and slogging through it just to get the end reward. That's why I always have an alt on hand to play games I'm not sure about so I can keep my main account fun and without ever getting frustrated to the point I'm playing the game because of the shinnies at the end.

 

The end of the day though in reality no one actually cares about your profile other than yourself so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Play what you want but be humble.

It's quite silly seeing numerous comments talking about  "the profile where you enjoy the games you like", "the profile you like, who cares what anyone else says", etc. The entire point of this topic is finding out precisely what makes a legitimately good profile. Answers like the aforementioned examples are literally irrelevant. This topic explicitly ask what aspects makes a competent profile, not ask for opinions on why profile owners shouldn't care about other people's feelings regarding the quality of their profile. Why ever bother having this type of topic if, apparently, all that matters is "having a profile of games you solely enjoy playing". Needed to be said.

A combination there-of.  Completion rate does not mean much without playing good or difficult games.

 

And absolutely no multi-region stacking of games (Ratalaika).

I believe profiles with stacked plats are silly imo. i get someone might like a game SO MUCH that they want to complete it over and over again, but i see it as ok congrats you completed a challenge/plat you already completed? or even worse if they just auto pop based off the first plat, though i guess fluff matters a lot to some. i dont have any overly difficult games on my profile, and yes i have some rata games but tbh ive actually enjoyed them. i always screen the games i want to play before i do (if they are odd indie games or something i havent heard of) just to see if its a type of gameplay id enjoy, regardless of who made the game.

 

As far as 100% profiles go, they rarely stay at that percentage since you actually have to start a game to get trophies and when you sync there goes your perfect percentage lol; so is there technically such a thing??

 

TLDR - to me any profile that has no stacks is great regardless if they are all common games with 95% average completion or ultra rares with 2% average completion

I can see and agree with a lot here...

 

Except I don't think completion rate should matter. Why? Because not everyone lieks DLC and not every DLC for every game is worth the money. I loved FFXV and enjoyed it, one of my first platinums. I tried the Gladiolus DLC and just hated it. Straighted up disliked, disliked the playstyle and story so I didn't bother buying any other DLC for it.

 

Completion shouldn't inherently matter, at least not the completion stat shown on PSNP.

If the person who owns the profile likes their profile then it's a good psnprofile.  Nothing else matters (unless they cheated of course)

 

I personally dont like mine, it's why I'm focusing on repairing my completion percentage.

none and all of the above... to paraphrase a previous post: all profiles are perfect...wouldn't it suck if we all had to play the same games at the same time in the same manner just for the sake of being considered "good"?...

any profile can be subjectively good :) however, if you want a great profile, you need:

  • 500+ plats
  • more URs than plats (esp. unobtainable ones)
  • plat every available stack

:).

 

and to devalue the trophies you actually struggled with, don’t forget that

This. I love my account. I think my account is amazing.  

 

According to this thread my account is crap though... but ask me if I care? Lol. At the end of the day, what you think of your own is all that matters.

How do you add a snapshot of your profile to your comments?

If you don't have the platinum of Crypt of the Necrodancer than your profile is garbage
