    Perfectionist or Level Climbing?

    My library is now carrying PS3 games and I was thinking about going crazy with trophies for a while... The only problem is that many of the games can't be platinum'd (Servers Closed, Require Online Pass, Tournaments No Longer Running, Etc.)

    Should I continue with my quest to be as close to 100% on every game? Or... Should I say Eff It and go for the highest trophy level I can? This is a tough one for me as I am currently 68%, but I have a lot of open games that I can definitely finish and be well into the 90's. Take a look at my trophies if you are on the fence about an answer. Thanks in advance for your input!

    You should go for more plats imo

    But if that's not fun, then just play games normally. This shouldn't turn into a chore.

    Whatever makes you happy and as long as you're having fun! If you have fun with all the games you play, then go for 100%

    There is no way I'll get a perfect trophy percentage so I might as well get a higher trophy level

    this is a little difficult.i suppose it depends on how much time you have on your hands and your skill at the games.i personally would just go for a higher level but like i said,how much time do you have and do you want to be a perfectionist or just play and have fun.like D1mech said "this shouldnt turn into a chore"

    I say try to be a perfectionist and try to get the highest percentage on each game, even on those that the online servers closed just try to get all singleplayer trophies. Of course you must have fun. If you don't have fun while trying to be a perfectionist, then you should just earn trophies for fun and stick with leveling up your PSN instead.

    It would be nice to have plats for all your games but for me there are some games I have had some bad buys and I'm not going to sit on a shitty game for hours and hours when I could be platting something I like. I also have games that I love but when it comes to the multiplayer I'm just not intereted. For me games like Bioshock 2, Crysis 2 and Homefront.

    Imo, going for perfection can be stressful, especially on games where it's either unplattable or there's so much crap in a game. I say to keep the fun factor of playing the PS3 and trophies is to simply level climb where you don't have to get ALL trophies for every game you play.

    If you've already started to go for perfection and you're enjoying it then keep doing that. Just do whichever one you would enjoy the most.

    tbh it would take you a very long time to get your current games to 100% especially that you have some tough ones like ufc 2009. I personally would go for 100% but seeing your trophylist I would advise you to go for the high trophy level

    I agree with Roswellian, UFC 2009 is difficult and the only people playing online are the dedicated ones so I would go for trophy level since you have alot of games that are incomplete atm. So I say go Level Climbing

    Level climbing is the way to go, IMHO. Play the games for the enjoyment of playing, instead of making a chore out of getting 100% in everything. Just my two cents!

    Whatever is fun for you. If its fun trying to be a perfectionist go for it.

    Personally I have a perfectionist deep inside because I am constantly thinking about going back to games to finish them off for the plat but then I end up playing something else and end up getting a higher psn level.

    I want my inner thoughts to turn into my gaming.

    Head for perfectionist, I personally find plat hunting more fun and satisfying rather than level percentage. Go for it!
