    I've got 16:
    Batman Arkham Asylum, God Of War 1, 2 and 3, Uncharted 1, 2 and 3, Demon's Souls, Dark Void, Dragon Age Origins, Sega Mega Drive Collection, Fallout 3, Prince Of Persia, Burnout Paradise, Infamous 1 and 2.

    Also 3 100%s that don't have Platinums:
    Streets Of Rage 2, Pixel Junk Shooter 1 and 2.

    I find them a good time waster as I was in Hungry for over a year with no job so couldn't buy as many games but now I'm back home I doubt I'll get many more, if they come from enjoying a game though then they are welcome.

    Trophies/Achievements have a place in gaming now days and if people want to collect them then good for them, it's not as if it's forced upon us.

    I only have the 1, Fallout 3 it's pretty easy to get, you just have to play through 3 times. Love the game so it wasn't an issue for me.

    Skyrim is next

    Trophies nearly ruined gaming for me - or at least I let it get to that point. Stopped playing games specifically for platinums at 100, but have since got another few on games that I bought purely to play, because I wanted to get the most out of them (e.g. Uncharted 3, God of War Collection Vol. 2, Portal 2).

    The unerring desire to get 100% in everything was horrible after a while so I sacked it off. Trophies/achievements have their place, but the endlessly grindy ones are such a pain. I bet some developers laugh their heads off at the hours people will waste to get them!

    Couple of sections had me in controller throwing territory, but kept at it an got through in the end. :)
    what was tough?
    It was the AI that was the main irritant.
    Various points where the game played by its rules but if you tried to do the same you weren't allowed. i.e. The boss battle where he can punch you at the edge of the platform and you fall off, whereas he cant fall off due to the invisible boxing ring that saves him.

    Plus other bits where its down to luck rather than skill.


    No hard trophies - a couple of repetitive ones if you haven't got enough kills with a certain weapon, or in a certain style, but nothing that's a problem.

    @amplifiedant i agree completely. Trophies ruined my gaming for a while but i still love them. After some re-evaluating and realising games are for fun i now only go after Platinums for games i teally enjoy and not just for the sake of the trophy, but when i do get that trophy it makes me happy.

    @Zackv4861 - Likewise. Having a ton of fun playing through DiRT 3 and Sonic Generations at the moment, fortunately both have quite a natural trophy structure as you progress through. Will almost certainly go for platinum in both as I'm really enjoying the challenge modes.

    Just got my first Plat from Crysis. Wouldn't have bothered but I already grinded through on the Delta level, so the rest were easy to mop up. It's also a totally different game with the easier difficulties - Delta is a bit too much cloak'n'recharge, as the armor mode is all but useless in it.

    No you don't just one playthrough. How'd you manage three?? What didn't you get on the first playthrough

    I'm pretty sure there were a few reach level X with good, neutral and evil Karma, so unless you are playing for the first time balancing your karma with saves before you level for each required trophy (which surely ruins the game) then multiple playthroughs were needed.

    Platinum #4 \o/

    I have four. Not had my PS3 long and I am close to getting a couple more. I only really go for trophies if I think the Platinum is gettable. Otherwise I just go for Golds as I think bronze and silver are nothing special in my eyes.

    List in order of proudness with favourite trophy/s.

    1. Deadspace - One Gun (I did this on easy, wish I'd did it and will do on hard for a good challenge) & Epic Tier 3 Engineer.
    2. Mass Effect 2 - No One Left Behind.
    3. Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time - My Blaster Runs Really, Really Hot.
    4. Godfather 2 - Executions In Style & It's Only Business. I also made my up my own trophy for this to make the end game better*

    Not very impressive but I am working on it. These are quite easy to get so are a good buy for anyone looking for decent games and a Platinum.

    *This Is My Town.

    Save at start.

    Take over all of Cuba without driving or going to your safe house. This must include the two Mangano businesses. You must kill all guards and crack the safe of each place before taking it over. Send your Family members to take over the place before you get there. If one of your Family members is wounded or arrested you cannot use him. If cannot take over a place or crack it's safe you have failed and must restart. If you are not being chased by the cops you must shoot the next copper you see. Includes taking Almeida compound and killing Henry Mitchell. After you do all this you must run to your safe house to make the call. Upon doing this you have earned This Is My Town.

    The games I'm working on;

    Batman: Arkham Asylum 75% (probably won't get this as I suck at the challenges).
    Fallout 3 89%

    I'm working on more but these two are the closest.

    To the posters saying trophies/achievements ruined or nearly ruined gaming for you. I don't look at the trophies before I play a game usually on normal and then do a trophy run second. It's inefficient as you normally have to play through it more times, but it makes the first play through all about enjoying the game. Plus it's good for milking a game, nice way save money.

    Edit - added Godfather 2.

    Fully agree, that's essentially where I'm at now. Most recent example is Sonic Generations - it's probably added about 10 hours onto the play time if I decide to go for platinum, but I'm in love with the game so that won't be a chore (and really if it was then why bother putting myself through it?!)

    The only exception is FIFA - when I've got the last couple of easy but time consuming trophies on '12 then FIFA 11 will be the only plat in the series that I don't have. Only thing left is 500 matches with my Virtual Pro so I *might* go back to it and finish those off. Again, that's for me though, no difficulty involved so it's hardly intended as bragging rights.

    I have reduced my interest in Trophies and Achievements. Have also started ignoring them on the first play through and will focus on them for a later run. The thing is I now seldom do that second run. So my Trophy / Achievement whoring is at an all time low.

    I do the same now1st play through i ignore trophies and if i really enjoy the game only then will i try get them all. If trophies are done right they can really open up a game. The problem is there's no regulation so some are so poorly done they're a pain rather than fun to collect.

    I generally only ever play a game through once, so tend to check out the trophies before I play (or at least early on) to see whether there any any which need to be done from start to finish (like collecting things).

    I will go back to a game to mop up missed trophies, provided they aren't ridiculously time consuming - i.e. chapter select on Portal 2, means I'll go back to get the 4 or 5 SP trophies I missed.

    Any which require multiple playthroughs or are multi-player focussed tend to be ignored.

    I have not really got my trophy policy down. I am a completionist so my natural instinct is to go for everything, but as people have said this can suck the fun out of games.

    The way I'm doing it at the moment is to look through all the trophies and see if the Platinum is gettable. If it is I'll go for it and get all the time consuming and crummy bronze trophies.

    This rules out multiplayer trophies as I only have 3G internet. Probaly a good thing because they are sometimes very time consuming.

    If I don't think the Platinum is gettable the I aim to get all the offline Gold trophies.

    There are two trophies I really want to get;

    I Chose the Impossible - Gold - Bioshock
    Complete the game on Survivor difficulty without using a Vita-chamber.

    Hard to the Core - Gold - Bioshock
    Complete the game on Hard Core setting.

    Both are extremely difficult (or at least they sound so to me) and I would be damned proud to have them in my collection.

    I think the second trophy you mention is for Dead Space 2.

    The Bioshock one is not so hard. I believe disabling vita-chambers makes the game harder less than people think.

    The DS2 one is quite a challenge, frustrating at times, but pretty satisfying. You can easily google some pointers on how to do this best.

    Got the platinum for Rayman Origins last night, got ridiculously hard towards the end, definitely not one for people who throw pads.
    Would highly recommend it as it is a great game and I found the trophies really added something to the game

    I've had a relapse :( Bought Trine 2 off the US store the other day (couldn't wait for the EU to get it) and the trophies are ridiculously easy, you don't even have to complete the game to get them all. Got the plat on 29th December and have added another 2 to my total since then. Think I'll have to go back to play Sonic Generations, DiRT 3 or anything decent before I fall back into my old pattern of playing crap games for their trophies :|

    It depends upon their size.

    Any title in particular?

    Edit: Ah, Trine 2. Very easy according to the trophy forums.
    Some have reported earning it halfway through the game :o

    @dominalien Trine 2's a reasonable enough game, but IMO is a bit of a missed opportunity. Fails to expand upon the first game's (admittedly solid) template; EG's review was fair.

    Was also disappointed that the trophy list is so uninspired - it simply requires a basic set of actions that you'd likely do anyway. Given the excellent physics I'd have expected some more imaginative, challenging ones. Even being rewarded for completing the full game would be nice!
