PS3 Trophies.. fun or frustrating?

08-08-2008, 01:40 PM
so now that the PS3 has trophies and a number of games and patchs are starting to come out supporting it. what do you guys think of the trophies? fun? frustrating?

Personally i find them rather frustrating.. the devs sure as hell didnt make them easy to get, i've only gotten 8 in SSHD and none so far in eden.. theres some pretty sick as hell ones in SSHD like stay alive in "endless" for 7 fucking mins.. thats impossible really, and the easiest one in eden is get one spectra in each garden.. theres 10 gardens man c'mon... im only on 4. i havent tried any uncharted yet.. what do you guys think?

Uncharted trophies are kinda easy, I think I have gotten about 20 or so. It's not much different than the achievements you got in the game already. After every 5 or 10 treasures you find you get a trophy and so many kills give them to you, etc.....

Ive been so addicted to civ on the 360 that Ive not even tried a ps3 game since trophies and civ was released...weak eh?

Some of them are pretty tough to get, I've been stuck trying to get the 10x multiplier on SSHD. Every time I get to 9x I end up getting nailed before I can hit 10x.

I guess that some of them should be difficult though, after all a gold or higher trophy shouldn't be a walk in the park right?

Trophies, like achievements, are a non-issue for me. While I didn't notice if they were in MGS4 or not I wouldn't have cared either way.

What matters to me is the game and the story-telling. I could care less if there if after I kill 50 of this bad guy or that bad guy then I'll be rewarded by some piece of text telling me what I accomplished.

I agree with keebs trophies matter nothing same as when i had my 360. I remember playing gears and my brother in law telling me were all the dog tags were at and couldnt care less. But what about the achievements he ask and I would reply who gives a shit. Honestly like keebs said its about gameplay and fun and to me thats not going for trophies. They remind me of when games were never ending and about getting the highest score. I thought gaming got away from that for a reason so why bring that back? I dont not care about anyones achievement score beat me at madden or COD4 and that means something.(not trying to imply I am good but thats a achievement beating someone not doing some ridiculous task for points)

Yeah, guess I should have mentioned that in my post above....Im very proud of my modest 6600 gamer score on xbl. I look forward to getting most all the trophies for the handfull of ps3 games Ive got. Of course, still having a blast with civ, so it might be a little while as I mentioned ;)

I agree with Keebs. Trophies/Achievements were never on my list of interest. I couldn't careless if my friends look up my gamer profiles and saw my low score/trophy count.

However, with the difficulty it was to get the Big Boss Badge in MGS4, if there was a Platinum Trophy (or whatever color is the highest) I'd have accepted it. Hehe.

Then I can show off my MGS4 leet skillz!!!

Is there some sort of amalgamated list somewhere about which games that are out now/upcoming that have trophies in them?

Here you go:


Seems like not many are supported yet.

Keep the link, I think they'll update it as new ones become available.
