...Implemented in games that do not necessarily lend themselves to using points.

Agree/disagree?

It's not an agree/disagree statement.

It's a fact. Gamers have been hunting achievements since day one.

Not at all...trophies are a copy of achievement in 360. Nothing to do with high scores...unless some achievements explicitly specify that

High scores are only one type of achievement that gamers have ALWAYS gone for. Some arcades even had achievement lists back in the day, and getting them all made you a master at whatever game. I completed an achievement list for Ms. Pac Man and Turtles in Time.

Hmm, not really. I mean, if two people get the same Trophy, who's the better gamer? On the other hand, if one player scores 100,000,000 points and the other scores 250,000,000, there's a clear distinction between the two.

Furthermore, most Trophies are just a matter of time, and require very little to no skill to get. Simply beating a level in a game shouldn't amount to getting a high score, so I'm gonna disagree.

They are an extension of what High Scores use to provide when arcades were simply about eating your quarters and making you replay the game.

Sometimes they are about comparing your progress with friends and high scores were often an indicator of how far you went in a game.

A sense of accomplishment: when you improve your game score, you feel better - getting more trophies/achievements is essentially the same thing.

Replayability - High scores made you come back to either beat your personal score or to beat someone else on the leader board. Now, achievements/trophies can let you explore aspects of a game you may not have thought of.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego

Trophies are bragging rights, which sometimes makes them equivalent to high scores, and sometimes doesn't.
