    Ill admit, Ive played some pretty easy games because they were free and I knew they were fast/easy. But Id never play anything like Hanna Montana. Ive passed on easy plats/100% just because it seemed too lame. I try to atleast still have fun while I whore out lol...

    When someone plays shit games for the trophies, and when someone hates a game but still gets 100% in it when they hate every second of it.

    I see a bit of biasism in this thread, and I'll try to be as little bias as possible.

    A "Trophy Whore", is usually used as person who mainly plays games for achieving the trophies for the game. They often disregard the game genre. It could be a kids movie tie-in as well as critically acclaimed games. The games do not necessarily have to be easy, but they usually don't mind an easy plat. They have been stapled to also disregard enjoyment, but that is not necessarily true. "Trophy Whores" can both hunt trophies solo or in groups on the same account.

    its obvious what defines a trophy whore, someone who rents out any old shit from Lovefilm, or such, on a regular basis just to get the trophies, crap like Hannah Montana and really easy kids games, they constantly rent out shit they know is easy just to brag about how many plats they have. but to me their plats are worthless lol

Sorry but I have been gaming for the past 24 years and I getting tired of people complaining about crap like this.
    I agree with you, but to say trophies suck on a trophy site is stupid.

    I don't think there is such a thing as a trophy whore. I call it the difference between those who take their trophy hunting seriously, semi-seriously, and for fun. The leaderboard is there for a reason and some people take it seriously, for good or bad. Want to be #1? Bite the bullet and play Hannah Montana.

    Simply, someone who buys or plays a game just for the easy trophies in it.

    Someone who plays a game they aren't interested in just for the easy trophies.

    My view of a trophy hunter is someone who plays games that would be highly unlikely that they would ever play if trophies never even existed in the first place like Hannah Montana for the sake of an easy plat. They try to plat a game ASAP and would boost all online trophies and are unlikely to help anyone once they got their trophies and as soon as the game is platted they sell it and move onto a new game.

    I do that! Although i enjoyed the Hannah Montana game for the music. Also, i am the exception because i am willing to help anyone with their games. I enjoy trophies, but i am not selfish, as i will be happy to help earn anyone trophies, as i would hope others are willing to help me

    With your definition, i am not one then.

    I play games, but not for the easy trophies, but because i enjoy the game. Regardless if the game is really short or childish, i am not ashamed.

    Well I wasn't ashamed of my Terminator Salvation plat. until I joined the community here. I was however ashamed of the fact that I bought a terrible game thinking it might be decent. I mean I don't know about this Hannah Montana game. But if your a grown man and play it I may question your motives a little. But if a love of the ding sound you get when a trophy pops up and the sense of accomplishment I get from a platinum makes me a trophy whore. I guess I'm guilty as charged.

    Are you refering to me? or the community in general?

    I know how people frown upon my motives when i have Hannah Montana, and other easy titles, but honestly i enjoy these games (and i work with kids, so its under "work related material".

    You can hate on me if you like, but you dont know my motives. That ding sound is so addictive, the kids i work with are now addicted to it as well.
