I think we have a bit of personal responsibility here... I choose to pursue trophies, it must be a choice because I am fully aware of what that entails so I'm not being decieved and my mind is not altered with drugs.
so it's not really anymore brainwashing than other collectors or hobbies.
christianity, now that requires manipulation and could be considered brainwashing...which I do consider it to be
He feared that his home should appear to Gods and men. Dreadful, dank and hated even by the Gods. Hades -Iliad 20.64-65
So that somehow equates to brainwashing? Trophies are there for you to get, Sony doesn't push you to get them one way or the other nor do they discourage you from getting them.
They won't release a game that doesn't implement trophies.
I don't see developers running to the WiiU because of that (Nintendo being the only one not forcing an 'achievement system' type on their console, not bashing WiiU).
No one forces you to get all trophies, therefore if anyone's doing the 'brainwashing' it's the person in question, not Sony or any other developer. Not that it's really brainwashing to begin with. It's really just a choice.
