    Completing a game, or Getting easy trophies from many; Quality vs. Quantity?

    I have noticed a major objective for gamers on this site is getting difficult trophies that give little, just to complete a game. I think that in this way a bronze trophy that completes a game can mean more than a silver or gold trophy from a random game. So, my question is, do you value completing a game with time-consuming and not-worth-it trophies way above getting easy yet higher value trophies from a bunch of other games? Share your thoughts, guys.

    I prefer quality trophies, thought it's all subjective really about what constitutes quality. For me, it feels more satisfying after accomplishing something hard or time consuming trophy-wise, even if the rewards gained are disproportional.

    It sometimes just makes me feel dirty just getting some easy trophies, but it varies from person to person I suppose

    edit: not trying to sound elitist, I like to get trophies regardless, just that easy ones makes me feel spoilt at times

    I do think it varies from person to person. I think harder trophies are more rewarding and you feel like you have accomplished something. On the other hand I don't mind playing an easy game for some easy trophies also. I like collecting trophies in general. Easy or hard.

    As long as what you do in the game is rewarded with a little trophy Im happy.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    I'll definitely go for quality, although it shouldn't be too much outside of the regular gameplay.
    With this I mean a trophy like; having to drive 1000 miles for a trophy while completing the story gives 100 miles if you already drive a lot.
    Or playing 500 matches with your virtual pro.
    That just seems a bit much to me and is more useless time consuming instead of challenging.
    When I started Fifa 11 the first several trophies were just WAY to easy, I'd rather have challenging ones instead of those.

    Quality over quantity. I plat games simply for the feeling of completion. I don't like NOT completing a game.

    Quality over quantity, though I would wish both would have a very nice balance. I could play a game with awesome quality for a long time, but a game lacking quality and has a large quantity of trophies would be abandoned after all trophies or is obtained.

    Mainly I tend to play games I either really like, or ones that my fiancee has bought and happen to be in the house (starting with the former, filled in by the latter when I'm bored) If they have easy/difficult trophies really doesn't enter into the equation until I start collecting the trophies (and setting my completion goals for the game)
    While I have some easy trophy games (frogger, Sonic Genesis collection) some of the games I have are pretty rough to get all the trophies on (Diner Dash and Dragonball Raging Blast) Mostly though the games I play are RPGs so a lot of my trophies are more time consuming than anything and therefore gives me a greater sense of accomplishment when I've ground out the requirements to get that little icon to pop up in the upper right corner of my screen

    Quantity because quality is subjective less than 1% of the people on the leader boards are really going to look at what trophies you've got. They will just see the number and nod, unless your at the top of the boards.

    Guess it changes with kids, my niece was hanna montna all the way. So she played it and I just finished what trophies she didn't unlock. I couldn't give two shits if anyone thinks my plats are weak. Get over yourselves just makes you look like a titty babby when people piss and moan about kiddie game or easy platinums. If my niece and nephew want to play then they do and if I feel like it I finish the game. This may be blunt and rude, but get the fuck over the weak vs trophy bitching. Guess what, your trophy card won't get you laid won't get you a good job. Lesson of the day, worry about yourself and stop getting into other peoples personal choice of games. This whole my virtual dick is bigger then yours only proves the ones who focus on this issue are lacking in real life and grasping for anything to make them feel "cool" ok rant is over just so fucking sick of seeing this type of topic beating like a dead horse.

    That is exactly the same with me. I can't stand seeing a blank trophy icon in my collection so I have to get it no matter how long it takes otherwise I don't consider it to be completed.

    I think it is more based on what sort of games you like, yeah a plat may be easy and take 100+hrs but if you get bored after 30hrs why bother? Play what you like, you dont make the trophies
