Playstation network store

So I got Superstardust HD, which I think is a must own for anyone that gets games off of the Playstation network.
But now I'm watching the videos for all of the other games with trophy support, and I cant help but think "I have to try this".
Echo Chrome, Pixeljunk Eden, Monsters, Vagas Bowling, all of these games scream super simple, but the trophies, I got to get them! I didn't think I'd play SSHD as much as I am, but gosh darn these games look great, have strategy, and are hella fun.
I think I'm gonna go broke buying things from the psn.


One thing I don't like is the Trophies, they take the fun out of playing the game to enjoy the game, and now it's about the trophies.

Yet, I'm strangely ok with not buying a game to play, but for the trophies, I'm considering Endwar and Bioshock just for the trophies. (Bioshock I know is a great game though, played some of it on X360) That's a sad state I think, playing games for trophies that don't mean shit other then "I got more then player X".
If I missed something let me know.

Yeah, you did. You missed the sense of achievement. Some people don't go through playing a game JUST for the trophies. It's cool when it has them, because you can show people and say "hey, i managed to get this. check it out!" and gives the player something more than just "yeah, uh... you got to level 5. woo." and something to carry with them after they've completed the game.

When you complete a game... say, mario on your gameboy, then it's over and done. Finished. You've done it. What now? Well, with achievements and trophies, you can do it again with special tasks in mind. Once you get those, they're yours and they last. They stay on your profile. It's a never ending aspect of the game. Even when you've traded that game or it's broken and gone, the game is still with you. And that's cool. Sometimes even makes you feel like you've got more for your money.

I sometimes describe them as "bragging rights and anti-liar tokens" when people ask me. Before, people could say "oh yeah i totally did that" and lie through their teeth. With achievements and trophies, you can check on them. And then call liar or say, "Well done."
Which is great.

I love achivements and trophies, and I look forward to getting many more on my ps3.

There's nothing going on around here to moderate. There's no owner to have a fit. Let's verbally abuse people just like the old days.

No don't. Because now we can laugh at you for being such a pathetic pussy.

Speaking of pussy, you think Alpha's ever gotten any?
