I always thought that getting all trophies takes a lot of the "fun" from any game.
Completely agree there. That's why I have almost no platinums.
There is always at the very least 1 trophy that is just zero fun at all to get.
I figured by now I'd have found at least one game that naturally compelled me to get a platinum but it just has not happened. I'm very much a completionist by nature but unless your playing specifically to get trophies, it just doesn't happen. I am still without a platinum and will probably remain so.
"Completing" a game and getting all the trophies, seem to be two different goals entirely to me... the latter (trophies) feeling more a chore than anything else IMO.
For my "retro-gaming weekend" agenda I decided to give Chrono Trigger another play. I've played it so many times I feel like I could hand draw most dungeon maps from memory if I had to and yet I still love every minute I spend with the game. Just got through Heckran's (sp?) Cave.
Its funny.... I notice for some odd reason it is way easier to sit down for a multi- hour gaming session when I do these "retro" games on the weekend. I don't know what it is about older 16 bit era titles, but they hold my attention without my mind wandering for longer periods of time it seems.
