    All the same

    Recently I have started to notice that PS3 exclusive games tend to have all the same trophy icons (or slight variations) throughout their lists. For example Infamous, Uncharted 1, Dead Nation, Gran Turismo and Motor Storm 2 are some that come to mind.
    With the exclusion of Uncharted 2 and the Killzone series, you'd imagine since they are exclusives that they would try and make amazing trophy icons

    Thoughts? Any more examples that have the same icons or different icons?

    I see what you mean. God of War: Ghost of Sparta has similar images to Dead Nation as well.

    I know it seems like they are being really lazy but think of it this way. If you were working on a long project for school or work and you have put in countless hours making the project near perfect. And then you remember that you have to do a small meaningless task for the project that really has no effect on the project itself. Are you going to put in a big effort to make it look amazing? I know I wouldn't. Just think of it that way.

    That's why I love games like Demon's Souls, Fallout 3/NV, and Dragon Age Origins. They all have unique trophy images that look awesome. I dislike how big production games like God of War and GT5 use the same boring images for their trophies. To me that's pretty sad.

    I see where you are coming from, but then how comes practically all other titles manage to make unique icons?

    Yup I have noticed this as well Jay.

    Not like it's a huge problem or anything, it's just nice to see a little creativity in the trophies

    All Little Big Planet 1 & 2, and ModNation Racers trophy icons are differents. And these games are PS3 exclusives, so if a game have the same trophy icons it's because their developers are lazy.

    I think ^ is hacked or something.

    That's why I love the Sly Collection, all trophy images (except for the plats) are different, same style, but different, the next Sly game will also have similar trophy images.

    I think series' should have one constant trophy image design/style, except when the series has gotten a huge reboot or something.

    Never really thought about it, but now that you mentioned it, they do seem similar.

    I blame laziness
