Woot, the dead walk among us!
I like trophies in games I like to play. I can care less about the Trophies in my Hana Montana game because they don't offer anything for discovering her true identity, what a shocker that was.
But in FFXIV, I would be alllllll over them. Not even because I want to show my friends, I just want to see if I can achieve the goals the developers, or whoever, set for us to achieve. PS3 Trophies make me feel better about accomplishing something. The Achievements that are in place now, kinda cool, I guess they will do, but I would hope for something a little more challenging or off the beaten path. Like:
PvP: Win 3 battles without taking damage or Kill someone with a DoT after you are dead
World: Outrun Cerberus on your Chocobo when fleeing from battle or Kill one of every type of monster in the game or /slap (or /kiss) a lvl99 Dragon before he 1 shots you.
These would make me go out of my way to do something fun that I normally wouldn't or try harder to get them. Then you add in some normal progression and I'm happy. Add them with updates and Expansions. Its fun. Something extra to make you stay another month while you wait for something new.
Come on, Wint, you know you want to /kiss a Dragon and get a Gold Trophy for it.
