Haha even the horse exploded!
Strangely enough, the only game where I went to the bother of finishing it completely was MGS4. I got every single emblem, I wasn't bothered that there was no trophies though. The Big Boss emblem run drove me to the brink of insanity though.
I hear ya Mr.Marston
I like achievements/trophies, as long as they're not going to drive me crazy.
I've got a Platinum for inFamous 1 and nearly had it for inFamous 2 but i apparently didn't have the hard mode activated before starting a new game and didn't get the final trophy because i only selected Hard when it prompted me to... But i enjoyed getting them, as they were great games and didn't have an annoying trophy like "Finish the game on stupidly-hard mode", a little niggle i have like Calex above.
I also have all achievements in Lego Harry Potter (years 1-4) and Beyond Good and Evil HD, but again because i enjoyed going through them to get them all (unlike Lego Star Wars:TCS, grrrr....)
Then, some games, like NFS: Most Wanted gave you everything for just completing the game. And there should be no such thing as MP trohpies/achievements, they ruin MP and are put in to get more people to play online in the initial first few weeks to make the game appear better than it is/have better online than it has.
But they wouldn't stop me buying a game/not buying a game.
the only achievement I can remember caring about in recent years was deus ex HR pacifist achievement but because of some bug with the tranq darts on a particular mission I didn't get the achievement in the end. I dont care all that much because I finished the game without killing anybody (except those god damn bosses) and that's what I was trying to do.
well nowadays nearly eevery game has them , but ti is a pain sometimes when u buy an older ish ps3 game and it has none, like the other day i got Rainbow 6 vegas 2 , and it had no trophies , thats why on xbox everysingle game has achevments to please everone
No I don't have this problem with achievments, I don't care for them that much. But I do know a friend that is the biggest trophy wh*re in the world, buys games just for trophies(even if the games crap) then trades them in
OMG got my first platinum last night. It was in Sly Cooper and was about as challenging as a mildly reluctant fart.
Ahh king Kong on the 360 was alright i enjoyed it at the time but the achevments did help my GS
Lego Harry Potter had an achievement called "Solid Snape" for hiding in a barrel while you were playing as Professor Snape.
That gave me a good oul giggle
I like achievements. Can be fun earning them and a sense of eh, achievement, if you get a particularly difficult one. Don't take any sense of pride in gamerscore though or look down on people with low score or trophies, that's just sad.
Achievements/trophies should be SP based only though. The MP ones always create endless tools dicking about in online play.
Yeah i hate idiots running around trying to mele kill ppl or camping just to get a bunch of MP trophies
My thoughts exactly. Especially with regard to the multiplayer. Or what they should do is make them so they do not affect your getting a platinum. Just have them as additional trophies.
Btw i must get my hands on some of the lego games, i've heard good things about them
not arsed about them, wish I could turn them off for every game, I play the game for the story and gameplay not collecting sh1te like in the Assassins Creed games, its filler and nothing more.
They are surprisingly fun, especially if you're a fan of Indiana/Star Wars/HP etc!
