    It depends I have "whored" myself out for trophies but at this point there's nothing I can do except to stop buying those kinda of games. Now I only play games for fun and trophies rather than rent Hannah Montana again . Some people have fun going for trophies no matter how bad the game is so let them have there fun and don't give a shit what anyone else says.

    It really depends on your degree of being a trophy hunter. I'm a pretty laid back trophy hunter, so it doesn't really kill gaming for me.

    Playing the game solely for trophies apparently "kills" gaming for what it originally stood for, but sometimes you play games for both trophies and the fun factor of the game so it doesn't do as much "killing".

    I was that way when I had gamefly. Recently I have been going for more of the difficult plats, and I have really enjoyed myself even though I have not plated a game in a while.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    Erm, not really. I rented out a few games for some platinums, to help my team members in a trophy competition and I ended up enjoying the game. If it wasn't for the trophy comp, I never would've played the game.
    So I guess it works both ways

    Never. I always play games for what they are first. I've been given two games by friends when I had nothing else to play; Chaotic and a FPS game. Never bought a game for trophies. I too have Trine 2 but got it because it's an awesome game. Even with Trine 2, I beat the game first before I went back to get the . I had about 1/2 my current games even before I got into trophy hunting.

    Lol, I've never bought a game that I don't like just for trophies. I only buy games that looks (covers) amazing and the gameplay is awesome to play. The games that I've platinumed are example of them. The ones that are not really close are ones that are TBC. And the ones that stay 0% are ones that I'll never really play...or just never xD The trophies, in a sense, is like a way to tell you that you're one step closer to fully finishing the game =D

    Nope. I buy games that look fun. If I like it enough, I'll go for the Platinum, no matter how hard it is to obtain (Except lately I've been lazy as hell). And sometimes it's the opposite. Mind you I got a Call Of Duty Classic for free from a friend and he told me it was a hard Plat, so I went for it.

    I play games because I like them, regardless of the difficulty of the plat.

    Uh yea, it's called being a trophy whore. NO offense but really, anyways I would never buy some game I know is lame just for trophies. I buy & hunt for games I know I would enjoy or that I'm interested in.

    Not sometimes, but often, depending on serious you are about it. You can waste time on games you dislike or don't feel like playing to get some trophies. That's not what gaming is really about. It takes time and effort away from doing other things, like actually enjoying the game... sometimes. For instance, I just got the Naruto Storm Generations plat. I hate playing online, the story mode sucked and I didn't see any real purpose to play the game. Yet, I still played it for 36 hours to do boring fight after boring fight to unlock 80% of everything. I got that plat though. In my personal opinion, the only time it doesn't really interfere that much if at all is when a person plats/trophy hunts for a game they really love. T

    It can ruin gaming if you let it. I have never let trophies dictate how and which games I play and I never will. I don't even look at them until I finish the game once or twice. If I feel like earning the plat I'll do it, if not I won't.

    No i never EVER buy games for trophies. Check my trophy collection and you will see that what i mean. I am currently close to the Vanquish plat, but i didn't purchase it to earn the trophies. The trophies are a side effect of something i would do anyway.
