I agree with that 100%, including trophies was one of their primary reasons to remove or disable cheat devices. There were lots of times where using a gameshark/action replay got me more replay value out of a game than I would have gotten otherwise. Its personal preference.
On PC I frequently use trainers and cheatengine on games, especially games like Borderlands 2 that are excessively grindy.
The players that hate trophies might be a minority but the ones of us that do, have a deep seeded hate for trophies/achievements for a number of reasons.
I wouldn't complain about trophies if:
They didn't use them as an excuse to disable cheat devices
They didn't use them as the primary means of extending replay value on a game.
They gave me a way to disable them.
On PC games, all I gotta do is crack the games and I can run them with no CD, no steam or origin and last but not least, NO TROPHIES.Edited by chaosblade02 - 2/9/13 at 5:00pm
