    10,000 kills (Resistance 2) - that's not fun, that's brutal.
    $5,000,000 (GTA IV) - see above
    Reach max. level online (Transformers WFC/FOC, RDR) - they can be good fun when playing with friends, but after a while you just want it to end!
    Play 8 full playthroughs (MGS4) - I've yet to actually do this, but EIGHT playthroughs?! Come on! I love MGS4 to death, but this is taking the mickey just a tad.

    When I have to do a huge grind. If that's the case, I usually don't go for it, unless it's the last trophy until platinum. I just don't see a simple trophy being worth X amount of hours of my lifetime.

    Anything that requires excessive amounts of grinding. Usually MP level trophies aren't boring because MP is fun, but maxing out in FF XIII... Oh, brutal to say the least...

    99.9% of multiplayer trophies, and trophies that heavily rely on luck or a random occurrence outside your control (not talking about drop rates of an item or something, yet more like game objects interacting with each other in an a-typical way). I don't mind grinding trophies, so long as it revolves something I enjoy doing in the first place.

    Depending on the length of the game, any more than 3 playthroughs is stupid.

    I also hate grinding, like the extra 20 hours grinding for items in FFXIII, and repetitive action trophies, like "kill 50 enemies with exploding barrels" or some shit; it takes the fun out of it.

    Also any trophies that require other players, so either multiplayer or co-op.

    What I love are trophies that reward you for doing unique and interesting things, like Borderlands 2's "Well That Was Easy" trophy.

    Grinding for kills, searching for collectibles (especially games that don't allow chapter select, so you have to get them all in one go), and multiple playthroughs because difficulties don't stack.

    grinding trophys and luck based are crap, skill based trophys are good as it makes you better (EVEN AFTER THE RAGE LOL). mortal kombat is a good one 400hrs that you dont even need to be present for.. im not leving my ps3 on for that long just for 1 trophy. black ops 2 160 challenges some luck most skill based 100 would have been plenty....

    3) platinum for playing the game again - @thread started ... i am in the same boat for the dragon dogma soon
    4) Multiplayer trophy cuz my net is shit tier ~

    some trophies lately were driving me nuts "Hero" trophy for Dragons Dogma drove me to drink when i was doing that you couldn't miss any quests or you were screwed. and currently playing ME1 and going to hate "Hardcore & Insanity" difficulty trophies i'm not fond of hard more trophies i won't lie lol but i like them more then playing online for trophies since very few people are game to help others out that i've delt with in the past.

    Multiple playthroughs kill me. MGS4 I bailed on because by playthrough 3 I was so sick of that game. I may go back to it soon but I just dont see the point in more then 2 playthroughs at most in a game. Lvl grind trophies are pretty shitty too but nothing compared to playing a game 5 times lol.

    Max payne 3: the shadows rushed me.
    Space marine: getting all the gun challenges done in multiplayer.. which are insane.
    Playing through campaigns like 5-6 times, just because you "have to" to get all the trophies.
    MP trophies that are very difficult to obtain through normal play, max level once or something are usually fine.

    It only ever feels like work if the game sucks or I'm not enjoying playing it anymore
