    I consider myself a trophy hunter, but I used to be a completionist. I had the 360 when I first started to collect and I was determined to spend countless hours boosting, which was annoying now that I look back. Now I will play a game just for fun and not concern myself with trophies unless I will have a good time obtaining them.

    I consider myself to be a competionest as I never like to leave a game finished. I only consider a game to be fully completed when I have both the plat and 100%.

    For myself, I would say that I'm a completionest to a point... I will only complete a game if it's one that I really like...but sometimes I like to leave a few unfinished to play a new one because I can always come back to it later

    I'm more a hunter than a completionest. With 17 plats out of 74 games with trophies. I could really care less about completing all of my games. I only play games for fun. When it stops being fun and starts being a chore or just boring. The game goes on the shelf. I may come back to it later.

    I'm definitely a completionist. Even if I don't really like the game I feel compelled to finish it. It's particularly annoying for me with FPS games - my husband loves them and likes me to try them, then I have to finish, even though I suck at FPS stuff and it takes month!

    If I love the game, I'll do everything, even if it hasn't got trophies (e.g. been everywhere, done everything in Oblivion) or if there aren't trophies for what I consider 'unfinished' (e.g. getting all the skill points in R&C Crack in Time). Of course, being a completionist does tend to mean you get all the trophies anyway, even though I always need multiple plays to get the hard/extra hard difficulty ones!

    I have been on the fence between these. I tend to fall off the fence to one side and climb back on it only to fall off on the other side; and the cycle continues.

    I want a higher completion % and strive for it however, I also weigh the reward against the investment. If a single trophy is going to be extremely frustrating or take me a long time I will tend to skip it and move on to something else (this totally depends on how much I like the game also). For example, I purchased the Dante's Inferno DLC packs to get my % higher (plus the game was pretty cool as I remember). I now have only 1 trophy left for the 100% but, it's going to be really tough and time consuming (and I don't really like the Trial mode play experience). I have conceded that I don't think I want to invest what it's going to take at this point.

    I have - to this point - avoided playing BS games just for quick/easy trophies. I don't know if i'll ever decide to go for these; it's tempting to do them to boost my # of Plats but, it just feels a little cheap. I guess only time will tell.

    Edit:

    I wouldn't necessarily say Exact... it's very similar for sure. I honestly like the wording of this thread better.

    Both Hunter/Completionist

    I enjoy collecting all the trophies for the games I play and I don't turn my back on a challenge no matter what. I have played some "whore" games but I had fun playing them, Terminator, Captain America, and Green Lantern are perfect examples of games with easy trophies but I had a ton of fun playing them. I won't play games like CSI, Ice Age, MegaMind, NCIS, Kung Fu Panda, Alone in the Darl and many others because I have no interest in them. If the DLC is pointless in a game I refuse to buy it just for the trophies I need to be interested in it, So far that has not been the case with any of my games

    A little bit of both, trophy hunter in me go for easy targets while the comepletionist in me aim for 100% awesome games .
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    Trophy Hunter...to a point. I'll only buy and try to plat games I like and want to play. I'm not going to buy or even play a game I don't want/like just to get a trophy.

    I'm more of a trophy hunter, but I've already started to lose interest in trophies. Maybe it's the games I'm playing. :/
