    How many of you would like to see Nintendo employ a Trophy list? A bit like Sony have done with their own games and how xbox have achievements.

    I think it would be a a nice move myself from Nintendo but in order for them to make it a much better trophy list than Sony and Xbox etc they need to make it so people don't have to spend hundreds of hours on one trophy like i've seen on other platforms.

    I really would like to see this employed along with a nice Friends list that everyone can see and compete with each other.

    Personally I honestly couldn't give a toss.

    I would welcome an improved online infrastructure overall like an account system, cross buy etc.

    I wouldnt mind, it would add another dynamic to playing their games, as it does with PS and Xbox

    Bit of a misleading title there.

    I think trophies and achievements are a waste of time that only artificially lengthen games.

    I treat them silimarily to "Secondary Mission Objectives" and grab'em along the way - more often than not it's fun to collect them.

    Unless they do something for me, like in GW2, they're a waste of time.

    Eh, I don't really care, achievements don't keep me from playing the game so if they were here, I wouldn't mind.
    Also yeah, as frogboy said, misleading title, I thought achievements were going to be a thing.

    I have always thought meaningless achievements/awards in video games are retarded. I don't need some text to tell me good job for killing 1000 enemies in one sitting, or finding a hidden area. I can take pride and pleasure in that kind of stuff myself without the developers telling me good job. Forget that noise.

    Nintendo has already stated that they are staunchly against achievements. The only way that you will have this is if individual games have their own way of doing so, like Pokemon and their ribbons.

    No wonder why I like Nintendo so much: they care about achievements as much as I do.
    Me either. I mean, it's not like your overall status as a world-wide gamer depends on how many trophies/achievements are in your profile on Xbox Live/PSN. I'm an awesome gamer and I've achieved completions of many games.

    I like trophies/achievements a lot, especially on psn cuz you have a level associated with it. also, it is cool to show off you got like platinum in a game, with it being online so all your friends can see it. sort of like a small competition you can compete in with at the same time is easily acknowledged by any other person on PSN

    This. GW2 was achievements done right, and basically doubled the ways to play the different modes - brilliantly done, but finding a similar set of awards is rare indeed: usually it's summat like 20G for jumping off a cliff 500 times then using a stimpack in Fallout 3. Load of tat.

    Think I remember reading Ninty saying they're a bit of a waste of time, and I agree: got award notifications turned off on both my PS3 & 360 these days...
