I have platinum trophies for both Uncharted 2 and God of War 3. I have to really like the game to go for it.
Got any PS3 platinum trophies or do you think they're a waste?
I've got platinums in Burnout Paradise, Uncharted 2, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Assassin's Creed II, and Borderlands.
I'm fairly close in Just Cause 2, Infamous, and Fallout 3 so I'll probably get the platinums when I eventually go back to them. Also, maybe Red Dead Redemption and MW2, but those will require a little bit more work and a Spec Ops partner.
I have about 6, but I'm forever screwed on a few.
Honestly, achievements and trophies were fun to chase for a while, but it became clear that some are not worth it. One trophy away from the Platinum on BioShock 2 (one of many examples) but I cannot sit through another 3 more hours of the multiplayer. It was fun at first, but I got so burned out on that game.
When trophies stop being fun, I just stop. Why put yourself through hell to get something that will never be meaningful?

@Sincillian: You get that Force Unleashed platinum! Lol. Is playing it on the hardest difficulty very hard?
@face15: Finding that last Burnout event was a pain.
The crappy thing is I started playing it on Sith Master again to get the trophy for the Aerial Ambush combos and I found Sith Master sooo much easier.
Got 2 platinum trophies, Assassins Creed 2 and Batman: Arkham Asylum. Was working on inFamous but got sick off my second playthrough after getting to the 3rd world on Hard(or whatever the hardest difficulty was required), was also going for platinum on Fallout 3 but I think I played the CD to death cause it started to crash on me :P.
And no I don't think they're a waste, cause some games are really fun to play for platinum like AC2 and Batman: AA(especially this game).
" I got my first two yesterday WAW and Uncharted 2. "Awesome! I need that WAW but that kamikaze trophy is a bitch. How did it feel getting two plats in one day?
I love trophies, working on rock band 2, rock band 3, beatles rock band and green day rock band.... I think it will take me 1 year to get them all... till I become really good at the games I have now around 40% on each...
In addition to rock band, I have around 10 more platinums.... and, the harder to get was probably KillZone 2 and SSF4... Oh wait... I have a list of my platinums on my profile, you can check that out
I have platinums in Fallout 3 and Borderlands. Currently trying for Fallout New Vegas but game slowdowns and lockups really make it hard to play for long stretches of time. Currently at 40% on trophies I think.
I wish I could make an attempt at more platinum trophies but I don't really have enough time to get better at the games I have.
I'm lv 10 with 605 trophies and 2 platinums in Assassin's Creed 2 and inFAMOUS. I usually only go for the platinum if it's fun to do so or it's a situation where I'm like one or two trophies away. Usually though, when I finish the narrative of a game I move on to another game.
I have four:
Sly Cooper 1 (will be getting the rest in the collection eventually)
Yes, I have a platinum in Yakuza 3.
I got all the shards in Infamous, but I think the 100% karma trophy stopped me from planting because I have no-way to level-up anymore.
I was thinking of getting a platinum in Final Fantasy XIII, I still might, but the level-grinding seems really ridiculous. This is coming from someone who S-Ranked both Lost Odyssey and Resonance of Fate. :/
I have 12 and I am Level 12:
Fallout 3 - 3 playthroughs, each > 100 hours
Dead Space - good game, but not very memorable
Unreal Tournament III - this was a grind, but fun playing w/ keyboard and mouse
Call of Duty: World at War - my favorite CoD, but ridiculous grenade spamming
Bionic Commando - no manual save and no back-tracking
God of War - amazing, but challenge rooms sucked
God of War II - exceptional
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - overrated
Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection - hemorrhages trophies
inFAMOUS - best PS3 exclusive (after MGS4 of course)
Assassin's Creed II - beautiful game but easy
Borderlands - addictive gameplay, but awful story
Most Anticipated Games:
inFAMOUS 2, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Resistance 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Batman: Arkham City, Agent, Mass Effect 2 & 3, Killzone 3, Rage, L.A. Noire, Mortal Kombat, Dead Space 2, Portal 2.
Got about 8 I think, right now I've got 1 full playthrough and about 4 chapters remaining on my current playthough to get the Uncharted 2 platinum.
I usually use getting a platinum as my being done with a game, and like to get it before I move on to another. Except I don't care for multiplayer trophies at all, so games with those I'll just get SP trophies and move on.
I like getting trophies, but like a lot of you, I only go for them in the games I really like.

My 12 platinums:
Mirror's Edge (definitely the hardest one of the bunch, with all those speed runs.)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Assassin's Creed 2
I actually tried to get the Dead Space platinum as well, but I couldn't get that asteroid shooting trophy. You kids and your fast reaction times!
I only have 1 for Sly Cooper, it was extremely easy and just involved playing the game.
I got close with a few games though. I found all the blast shards in inFamous and did most of the extra stuff, I just need to finish my second playthrough.
I also did a lot of the trophies in Uncharted 2 but can't be assed playing through a third time and sitting there with a guide to get the treasures.
And all the riddles in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City - the only thing preventing me from getting platinums is playing games more than once.
