    Time consuming trophies, why?

    For you guys who has earned a trophy that have taken you a VERY long tim to get, like the the GTA IV Wanted trophy, why did you do it? What motivated you to go for such a time consuming trophy?
    I have done it, but I don't really know why. Do you know why you did it?

    Hypothetically what should it take for you to reconsider using the 360hr going for that particular trophy in Mortal Kombat?

    Oh how this reminds of getting the Just Cause 2 plat. I think I did to prove myself. Now I'm kinda doing the same with Defiance, but that has been a blast up to this point, so I'm not sure if it's going to feel like a long grind.

    I wasn't going to let one time consuming trophy stop me from getting a plat when I had put the time in to get the rest

    Time-consuming trophies require dedication and effort - it's part of what seperates Hunters from Whores. It's also a great way to game on a budget Pick a game that will take a while to plat, and you'll get hundreds of hours of value.

    To me it's not like a lot of people in here who just play one game and plat it, I have no hurry in getting them. For example I just need one playthrough in Uncharted 3, I could have done that a year ago but I'd rather play something else and come back to it later.

    I do it to see if I could actually get those time-consuming trophies. In Resistance 2, I gave up on the several times because of the daunting 10,000 competitive kills trophy. But, I kept chipping away at it, next thing you know it glitched on me and the online servers gave me 5,000+ kills!!! . I gave up on Crysis 2's online because of the lvl 50 trophy and how dead the online was, but all that changed when I got a group of dedicated boosters to hammer out the last of the online. Once I got that lvl 50 trophy, nothing was stopping me from the , and now I own both plats.

    Spent over a 1000 hours playing WKC. I played the game for almost a year and I had fun playing it.

    The game that took me the longest time to Plat is probably Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes (around 200 hours), and it took some grinding and weapon farming. In any case I was actually ENJOYING the game and playing co-op so half those hours are actually just from having fun and not focusing on trophies. I would try to get Wanted on GTAIV because the multiplayer is fun, but sadly nobody plays anymore.
    I wouldn't go for a trophy that required insane amounts of time unless I truly enjoyed the game or had someone I liked to play with in the meantime.
    I guess I'm not a good trophy Hunter but at least I'm not a trophy "Whore."

    Yes, Faust has it right. Since I paid for a game, might as well get everything out of it. If it's excruciating though and I have something else to play, then I'd move on.

    Unless it is the last trophy I need or it is a platinum I really want, I don't waste my time grinding a trophy that won't lead to a platinum (hence why I don't have Wanted in GTA IV).

    When it comes to time consuming trophies I just stick to the task at hand. Time consuming trophies shows just how much you want that shiny .

    To tell you the truth I don't know why I go for these tedious trophies ... guess I am simply a sucker for punishment

    The game that took me the longest & hardest time to plat is probably Gran Turismo 5 around 400+ hours and I had fun playing it.

    Time-consuming trophies are barely a hurdle when you can hack them like a boss.
