Purchases you made just for Trophies
So this is more of a spur of the moment blog post because I was pursuing my game library and came across a copy of Mr. Massagy that I had no recollection of purchasing. Then while looking up the Trophy list before booting it up I remembered why I had bought it, several people had told me it was an easy platinum and it was dirt cheap. Now I do not consider myself above making cheap purchases for achievements, trophies or steam trading cards( see my ridiculously high steam level.) but I try to make a conscious effort to limit that now to only grabbing the ones I may actually enjoy playing and Mr. Massagy while I'm sure not a bad game is definitely not in my wheelhouse.
So I began to look into all my game libraries and start highlighting games that I genuinely had an interest in playing at some point and was surprised to find that a large amount of them just didn't appeal to me. Why did I grab that copy of Sherlock Holmes? It was 5 dollars and seemed an easy platinum. Would I enjoy the journey? Probably not it wasn't something I relished playing.
So here I am making a new conscious effort to play games I ENJOY for trophies. Yes my journey will be a bit slower to reach my milestones and catch up with a lot of people on my friends list but I will enjoy the trip even more so. So has anyone else done this when it comes to easy platinum's? Did you ever regret buying a game for that purpose? Let me know if you have I am genuinely curious.
