Wii U needs account-based accomplishment system

It depends on how they're done. I think the trophies for just progressing through the game is ridiculous. I do kind of like the ones where you have to do odd things within the game to get them (like stay airborne a certain amount of time).

You shouldnt need an "incentive" to play a ****ing video game. You play them for fun. That's your "incentive".


There you are. Add it in, but allow it to be disabled. I could care less about getting a virtual "WHOO!" for doing something in a game.

"Achievements" have become an industry standard at this point. Nintendo is remiss to not add a similar system.

If achievements and trophies are your incentive to play a game, then the game designers have failed.

Exactly. I already have a friend who won't play any game that does not involve achievements or trophies. If it doesn't feature trophies, you can forget trying to get him to play it. The sad thing is, he had openly admitted to enjoying what he has seen of some Wii U games, but he won't even consider buying the machine. Why? Because he can't get trophies.

He has also admitted that trophies have ruined games for him. Every game he plays he is obsessed with getting 100%. I forget which game it is, but I remember one game he absolutely hated it once he hit 100%, and he did like it when he bought it.

Personally, I gave up on achievements and trophies years ago. The last time I tried to get every achievement in a game was Assassin's Creed II, and after the stress of that, I told myself I'd never bother again. I lost any interest I had in the game by the end of it.

So I'm fine with the Wii U having no form of achievements or trophies. If the game is fun, that's my incentive to keep playing. Getting 100% in Lego City was fun, and kept me going. Getting the fruit in Pikmin 3 is fun, and that kept me going. But an achievement for fighting 2,000 enemies is not fun to me.
