Why do you enjoy collecting trophies?

Ever since my first trophy pinged onto my screen in the top right corner, I have amassed well over 2500 trophies in total. For some they are just there for no reason, but for others they are an important feature to games.
For me I find that trophies not only add an added level of achievement and a way of showcasing your skills and ability to your friends, it is the competing between your friends with quantity of trophies and battling for the platinum first. However, the most important thing for me is how it encourages the expansion of the game; with the trophies active it gives you even more objectives and it generally makes the games longer.
I am not a fan of online play, I do use multiplayer but I prefer single player so much more, but trophies do encourage me to give it a whirl. I find that multiplayer can drag on without any purpose or objective, there just isnt any end, but with trophies they fill that hollow space for me.
The trophies also give us more of a sense of self accomplishment when we use our wits and skills to gain them or complete the game on a painfully hard difficulty.

Trophies are a brilliant idea and give games a whole new lease of life, it pulled me into the PS3 even more when I first got it and now I'm probably addicted.

So my question is, why do you guys love trophies so much?

Honestly , because it makes a nice little plink noise when you get one.

 

I've often wondered why I bother trying to get some of them , lost a lot of trophies when I got ylod a few years back , lost all uncharted and uncharted2 when I was on 80 odd percent , never felt like going back over them took me ages to find all the treasure as well.

 

Moral to that story....................................sync man sync :smileysad:

I honestly can't say to be honest, ever since I was a child I've always liked to finish things 100% (football stickers, wrestling stickers, Pokemon cards, etc) so I guess I'm a completionist at heart.
When trophies first introduced I wasn't to worried about my completion percentage just getting whichever trophies I could without too much work needed but somewhere since then (in 2009 with GTA IV) i focused on getting every game I play to 100% and have had my fair share of hard and frustration in getting my current completion percentage.

I used to invent pseudo-trophies for games I loved, even before they existed. So it's nice to have them formalised and tracked. Although it does make it annoying when the developers come up with stupid and/or impossible ones (or excessively grindy ones).

I see it as the game devs set you a challange with the trophies they set and its up to you to accept the challange or not. Also i like that sence of completion when the plat pops. I have definitly got more out of my games from trophie hunting.

Yes is not an answer to a why question.

But well played.
