    This. I've gotten to the point where I like to make the attempt with any game I play but as long as I complete the game it doesn't really bother me too much.

    I have severe OCD, strong enough to warrent medication (which I feel does nothing so I've stopped taking it a long time ago) I don't like to start things and not finish them. That being said yes it would upset me to not get a plat or 100% on a game that is on my account. Personally I wish the option to disable trophies in a game was available on my profile, because then I wouldn't feel so pressured to get the trophies and could play the game to the level of completion I desire from the onset and not feel like I have to get trophies 'out of the way' to enjoy the game.

    Awesome sig by
    Kid420247! Thank you so much!!!

    Many thanks to RaveNScythe18
    for the awesome platcard!!!

    I have a few games in my collection that I've accepted I will never platinum. Chief among these are the two Street Fighter IV games, as the later Trials are just too challenging for me to pull off. I can usually link together three or four moves in a single combo, but when the game expects me to link up to eight different moves into the same combo, I just give up - I'm simply not skilled enough to accomplish such feats. Although these would be two incredible platinums to have, I've accepted that they'll never happen, and that's that. It doesn't prevent me from enjoying the games though.

    Just depends, I have a few games I only need one maybe two trophies for the plat but I don't feel like playing the game. Only time it would bother me if it was a game I really enjoyed and a glitch dicked me out of the platinum, then I would be a little pissy about it.

    to OP - yes, honestly it does. Not to the extent that you are referring to. I still play and enjoy my other games, but, atm...I have Vanquish at 91% and am almost positive that i will never plat it. (for one i got rid of the game and for 2 I rage quit so many times doing the challenges it's not even funny). Maybe somewhere down the road when I have nothing left to play (ya right) i'll go back and give it another shot....but for now i'm just going to bury it into my tears when I cry myself to sleep at night.

    I could care less about platinums.

    Trophies are just add-ons for a game that will challenge me.
    When I get really bored, I go for them.
    That's about it.
    It's just a flesh wound.

    Yes and no.

    Not platting games that I really like would bug me especially when it's MP trophies Black Ops and BF3 bugs me...A LOT!!! Those zombie and co op trophies are difficult to random.

    Games that I don't really care for or don't like ~ unless the last few trophies left are super easy and i'm just lazy, then i don't really care about plat

    It strongly depends on the game and how much effort I put into getting the

    If it's a game who's servers are already down (fucking EA) then it doesn't bother me at all. Same with games that I don't really care about or don't care for the trophies. On the flip side, it's a game I love and tried really hard for a , then it bugs me for a while. I still haven't completely gotten over the fact that I can't plat Midnight Club: Los Angeles due to bugs and glitches. I would've platted it almost two years ago...

    Not really. I've just accepted the fact that it will not happen. There are many games on my list that haven't been and never will be platted.

    If you are a casual gamer with a real life and job, not getting a plat on a certain game will not bother you. At least that's true with me.

    It is weird for me. If it is a good game I don't mind not getting the platinum because I know that I will go back and play it again later.

    With a bad game it drives me nuts. I was not going to let a game like Tony Hawk Ride beat me, for example, so I just kept at it until it was done.

    And I'm the opposite. If I know I'll be playing a game again knowing I can't plat it and I really like it, it drives me nuts sometimes!

    It bothers me to the point of enduring the tedium of this trophy.

    Getting so close to plattinng a game, but not being able to does bother me. Arkham Asylum really bothered me, because all I had to do was beat the challenges. That's why after 3 years I finally platted it.

    here is this to motivate you on Gran Turimo 5, i invite you to not quit on it

    This is one game that I don't think I will ever plat. The main reason is the redbull races and other challenges. I couldn't beat those races to save my life, especially with a controller.

    Depends on the game and how close I can get to the plat. That new Ratchet and Clank game annoys me because I can't get one trophy because I need an online pass. But games in the Rockband and Guitar Hero series never bother me because I know from the beginning that I'll only get around 40% of the trophies.
