Did anyone else disable trophies?

[ Edited ]

For me personally, it's not something I care about. I had them disabled on the PS3, my Vita, and now the PS4. I used to be an achievement **bleep** in the early 360 days, but then I realized it was all for nothing. 

 

I have a backlog of over 100 games across various platforms, the last thing on my mind is a virtual award. The other thing is, so many of these trophies are meaningless, like completing the tutorial in a game. So what? And lastly, they break the immersion so much. Nothing like watching an intense cutscene and hearing that beep.

 

My thoughts.

Well I disable people from seeing my own personal trophies. I don't think it matters. I mean if I could add all the trophies within a 30 year old lifespan of playing games, than I think I would reach the limit and then some. So it shows that I have 0 trophies but doesn't mean I am not still collecting them. 

 

Thanks,

People compliment my Platinums, I keep them up. Plus i try to get all trophies not because of the Platinum but so i can spend more time with a game.

I haven't.  The fact that you could win real items with them is kinda cool, and an incentive to keep collecting.


Yes, I did create that game on the Vita you probably never heard of.

Exactly what real items could you win?

I have them turned off as well, It's kinda nice playing on my 3DS and knowing I can just simply play a game. I believe that's the reason Nintendo won't really adopt a real A/T system, it breaks the immersion in the game.

Well xbx started a rewards program they give you like 10 cents or what ever per point. I had 1000 some odd gamerscore and i got 4$ not bad a little intiative. They also have a rewads that if you renew every year they give you 4 $, 3 $ for 3 months  they also give other intitives. Some kinda does this with their credit card, but you have to get their credit card and use it.

THIS is exactly why. I miss the PS1/PS2 games. You played games for fun, not for virtual rewards.

There is no obligation for you to actively seek out trophies. They're optional. You can still play games for fun.

Yeah but I disabled the notification.

 

I think trophies are ruining games for a lot of people because they're addicted to them. They waste so much time doing pointless things to "platinum" a game.
