I am a noob and have no platinum trophies. I need to start trying harder for them because they actually make playing a game more enjoyable and rewarding.
Some platinums are pretty easy, just a little time consuming. I think trophies do make a game have more of a replay value though. It kind of gives you something to do once you've completed the game, which is nice.
I am working on getting the inFamous Platinum. It is pretty easy, but like you said time consuming. I also get excited about hearing and seeing the notification that you have recieved a trophy. It's the little things that make you happy.____________________ GOT WOMBATS?
Yeah, ha. I could easily get the plat for infamous, but I don't want to spend the time to do it. Good game but not good enough (IMO) to play for the plat.

'Only' have 2. NFS Shift 1 was the first. Very satisfying, but took a lot of work. 2nd was Madden 11, a game that had a pretty easy requirement, except for a couple of tough ones. Working on MLB 11 the show now. That might be the most satisfying, for many reasons! Too many to mention here
My first Platinum was Fallout 3. I usually only platinum games I truly enjoyed and ignore the others to show the other games that they aren't worthy enough! Some of the games I'd get close to Platinum but not it because I want them to suffer! For them to realize that if they tried abit harder to satisfy me they could have platinum! My platinums goes as follows: Fallout 3 > Bioshock 2 > Heavy Rain > MAG > Sly 2 > Sly 3 > Sly 1 > Portal 2 > Dead Space: Extraction.
My first was Resident Evil 5. I lost count of exactly how many, but I know I've got Arkham Asylum, AITD: Inferno (Super Easy), Bioshock, Dead Space 2 (Would have the first one's plat by now but it was stolen before I could beat it on the hardest diff) and a few others. I jump back and forth from too many games to just grind until I get the platinum. Way too many great games on PS3, and working overnights leaves so little time to rock out.
My first platinum was for Fallout 3, my second platinum was for Assassin's Creed II. The feathers in ACII were the worst lol!
Achilles, what's up! Those feathers were a total pain in the Heineken, so I don't go after any platinums that require collecting stupid crap like that anymore. My first was Uncharted 2, gotten a few other since then.
