    Does Anyone Else Think This?

    Does anyone else think that some developers/producers take trophy whoredom/hunting as an advantage, so that they can add more easy trophies and the hunters/whores buy them? So that the developers/producers makes more money?

    Trine 2 is a perfect example of this. You can earn the platinum trophy on chapter 7 of 13. Not to mention, I think every trophy is gold besides the platinum.

    Trine 2 is far from crappy. Although I have only played the demo, it's an amazing looking and playing game. Oh, and by the way, it does have one silver trophy. In any case, I don't think there are that many hunters out there compared to the average gamer. I would hope that, even with greed in mind, that they are targeting a much larger audience than just trophy hunters/hoarders. It would be a very poor marketing technique if that was the case.

    No, but if it turned that way.......... what counts then is what games you plat and not your lv or how many trophies you got.
    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 think this happens to a certain extent but not completely for those reasons. Like God of War III it was a good game to me but some of the trophies we easy some were hard. I believe that in most games the trophies are an after thought but for some of the cheaper games it definitely is a poor marketing strategy. now post some of the cheesy game so i can get some easy & trophies?

    Nobody would buy or play Hannah Montana if it wasn't an easy plat... So yeah, easy plats sell games. (even if its on the $10 rack)

    Not exactly
    When a game has easy trophies, the hunters rent it, not buy.
    They'll buy it if the trophies are difficult or take a long time
    This is assuming hunters choose to buy a game solely for the trophies, though

    No, I disagree. Take a game like Dead Space 2 for example. That should well is and is one of 2011's toughest plats.

    Well take Megamind for example: easy trophies for a kids game, so easy plat for kiddies.

    The Slys: Easy, so the teaser could surface most likely. Developers have their reasons for trophy difficulty, they try somewhat.
