Hey folks, thought I'd rant a bit about Rockstar here, seeing how I'm prepping up for something big!
I, like many others, was caught up in the hype for GTA4. Ah, remember those days? I had only had my PS3 for a few months at that point, and the R* hype train was building momentum.
I bought the game, and enjoyed every moment of it. However, I rarely touched on the multi-player aspect, until Trophies were released.
I was also caught up in the hype for trophies
With the release of trophies in the summer of 2008, Sony unleashed a new beast. Before, Playstation owners played games purely for the enjoyment with friends and to move up the leaderboards in one or two particular games. However, a new dimension was added; friends competing against each other over a large number of games, instead of just within one game at a time.
This has inevitably lead to ultra-competitive gamers fighting for the highest number of platinums to the furthest extremes.
