Too easy, they should add:
"Have all cards"
"Finish Queen of Cards Quest"
"Level 100 all GFs and Characters" and
"Finish ALL Chocobo's Forest Quests"


Also,

Defeat that mechanical Spider in Dollet.

Obtain Lionheart on disk one.

Beat the game at default levels...

Grinding shouldn't be a trophy.

And Multiple-playthrough trophies shouldn't be a thing.

200000%

Right, because rewards for people that like the game enough to play it again are something wrong.

FFX "Complete the sphere grid with all characters" is one of the most horrible, grindy trophies I've ever seen. After that one, I'm never complaining about other grind trophies again.

that one is "reasonable" to many people who did that on back on PS2. min/maxing the grid was part of the post game grind.

FF9's stupid jump rope on the other hand, I can't imagine too many people bothered with it.

I maxed stats on the PS2 version as well, even clearing out and rebuilding the Sphere Grid. It didn't require every node to be filled though - roughly half to get 9999/999/255 All. But that trophy needs every single node to be filled, and activated, with every single character, and it's pointless since there's going to be a huge waste of Magic Defense (the easiest Spheres to farm).

Shouldn't the reward be in the experience itself then?

Now if there's "multiple endings" and arching storylines, that can be justified.

But cheap hooks like lower levels challenges or max-stats-whatevers playthroughs are not rewarding.

I'm missing one trophy from ffvii. The one to get barret on the gold saucer ride.

?!?!?!?!?! Ugh


There's an easy cheese for that, at Cosmo canyon. Search it.

On topic, Hella easy platinum. Never completed ff8, done something that messed up my save file many years ago and never touched again

Honestly, no. Even in games I hold in high regards, some of their trophies are purely designed to keep the player playing that specific game.

if you want players to play more than once through your game, then give them an incentive better than a trophy. Its as multiple story arcs became a thing of the past these days. Those would make for better trophies.

You can already do those things anyway though, why would a trophy change anything?
