    inFamous was my 1st too so maybe it has something to do with that game. But seriously this site has many other people just like you. I'd advise you to try to play games that you think you'll like bc you'll burn yourself out sooner forcing s.

    And "last year" was around this time, maybe just after new year's, when they put a lot of stuff on clearance. Check the endcaps around the store near the back walls - they usually throw all the clearance games there.

    I will never buy a game for trophies. I don't care what trophies games have, I buy them because I like them.

    Whenever you buy a game you should play through it at least once without even looking at trophies. That way you'll enjoy the game for what it is, instead of worrying how many kills you need with a certain weapon for that one trophy.

    Give it a try. You might find yourself enjoying games more.

    Totally agree on that. Only buy games that you know you'll enjoy, because that's the meaning of video games, entertainment. If you don't enjoy a game, why wasting your time on it?

    In my perspective, trophies are some extra challenges for a game so you don't get bored after finishing it. For example, I finished AC: Revelations yesterday(one of my favorite games) and I would have put it on the shelf if there weren't any trophies.

    These are games you should, and must, avoid like the plague. I may be guilty of platting one of these games myself, but I really wish I hadn't bothered. Don't deliberately buy shit games just so you can boost your trophy count - it's not worth it. Spend your time playing games you actually like, and earn the trophies from those instead.
    I agree with most of that except for CSI: Fatal Conspiracy it's not a bad game if your into the game and like the tv show. Yea the Plat isn't very hard if you use any guides but if you don't use them and play the game yourself instead of going straight to the guides it's not a bad game. Please don't just judge a game just because of it's trophy diff.

    Yea i found that after you get your 1st plat you get the bug and thats it lol. But try and play the 1st playthrough just for the enjoyment and don't concentrate on trophies untill your 2nd Playthrough. Games are still worth playing just us Trophy Hunters need tp remember that nw and then.

    Exactly. And if you feel it's worth getting the Platinum for, than do it.

    The only game I'm guilty of buying only for the trophies is .detuned. Other than that, all the games I have I buy them because I like them. If I go for the plat well ok, but if I don't I just stop playing it.

    I think that buying games just for the trophies is the dumbest f*cking sh*t anyone could do, but that's just my opinion.

    i think buying games for trophies adds to your gaming addiction which is a good thing it adds a competitive flare to playing games and it gets you to try games that you wouldn't other wise like Megamind i didn't think it was terrible i thought it was pretty decent with what they were working with but buying a game for trophies is nothing compared to importing a game for trophies lol good times collecting trophies is so addicting

    So sad, so sad.....
    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.

    I buy the games I want to buy first, trophies or not. Sometimes if I'm on the fence about a game, AND the game is on sale or discounted or bargain binned, trophies give me an extra incentive to give it a go. But again, only if its on sale. I didn't think I'd like Dragon Age, found it used for cheap, and it was a good choice.

    For me there are some games I will get no matter what. For others that I wouldn't have usually picked up, I consider the trophies. Trophies have also helped to prolong the life of certain games for me, and kept me playing long after I had them finished.

    Maybe i worded this wrong, i mean it more on the lines of that there are some games that i wouldn't have bought had it not been for the trophies, - ie the tomb raiders, but the fact that now i have them, i see them as a duty to try get the plats for. maybe that makes more sense..

    Yeah i understood you from the beginning. Basically buying a game you have no interest in (say hannah montana) simply because there are more trophies there for you to collect.

    I personally don't see a point in it because a trophy is no more than just a few pixels saying that you did xyz. I enjoy to collect trophies, but there's no way i'm spending money on a game simply because of it's trophies. If i have interest in a game i'll play it, if it has easy trophies, that's bonus points. But don't worry about it, on this site, i'm probably in the minority... Therefore, you're normal

    I'm in the minority with you then. I only go for trophies on the games I like though. Otherwise, I wouldn't be have bought GT5 or MK, if I cared about easy trophies that much.
