Gamers that have owned a PlayStation 3 for a while might remember a time that trophies didn't exist. Some games like Uncharted and Metal Gear Solid 4 eventually got trophy patches. But, there are quite a lot of games that never did. So here's a list of 10 great games that still don't have trophy support.
Ridge Racer 7
This was a launch game and is one of the last classic Ridge Racer games made. In 2010, four years after its initial release, Ridge Racer 7 even got a "3D License Version" that allows the game to be played in full 3D. Yet, still no trophy support.
Genji: Days of the Blade
This is another launch game and sequel to the PlayStation 2 samurai action gem Dawn of the Samurai. This game features famous battles which actually took place in ancient Japan and real-time weapon change. Without ever getting trophy support, how can I show my PlayStation Network friends that I beat the giant enemy crab by attacking its weak point for massive damage?
When you think of fighting games with weapons, SoulCalibur is usually the first game that comes to mind. You can unlock honours in the game which are basically the same as trophies and even doubled as achievements for the Xbox 360 version. But alas, no actual trophy support ever made it to this fighting game classic.
Before developer Ninja Theory made the critically acclaimed yet highly underrated Devil May Cry reboot DmC they made a pretty cool action game called Heavenly Sword. Melee combat with different fighting stances and the ability to control projectiles with Sixaxis motion controls made the action gameplay unique. The main character Nariko later appeared in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale which qualifies Heavenly Sword as a classic PlayStation game but still no love for trophy hunters.Also featured in: Top 10 PlayStation 3 Exclusives That Deserve Sequels
When Driveclub developers Evolution Studios moved on from their PlayStation 2 series World Rally Championship to PlayStation 3 they made a new racing game called Motorstorm. Upon its release it was considered an instant off-road racing game classic and eventually spawned 2 sequels (with trophies) and a couple of spinoffs. However, still no trophy support for the original.
Devil May Cry 4
Sequel to one of the best action game series but starring a completely different main character, Devil May Cry 4 is a pretty cool game. This is another game that was also released on Xbox 360 with achievements. If someone wants to show off that they cleared all of the missions in Dante Must Die mode with an S ranking then I guess they're out of luck playing this on PlayStation 3.
Siren: Blood Curse
Horror games that are actually scary are few and far between. Although the Silent Hill series does a good job of scaring gamers, Siren gives Silent Hill a run for its money. Playing this incredibly creepy and atmospheric first-person horror game will make you jump at times. Too bad there are no trophies to show that you braved the experience. I guess you can always photograph your underwear stains.
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
The Ratchet & Clank series has combined combat and platforming to create one of the most fun series in gaming. With a ton of sequels and HD remasters, it's quite surprising that the PlayStation 3 premier title has never got a trophy patch. With 10 Ratchet & Clank sequels, remasters, and spinoffs on PlayStation 3 it really stands out that this and Quest for Booty have never got trophy support.
Turn-based strategy RPGs are definitely an overcrowded market. That being said, Valkyria Chronicles stands out as a high quality and unique experience among its peers with its fantastic presentation, tense battles, and the ability to move individual units freely. Downloadable content is available in the form of 2 side story chapters and a Hard EX mode. This coupled with the fact that a trophy-like system is implemented in the game where you earn medals based on certain requirements makes it harder to understand that there's still no actual trophy support.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
The Ninja Gaiden series has always been known for its intense level of difficulty all the way from its 2D origins up until present day. Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the 3rd version of the original Xbox's Ninja Gaiden reboot. Out of these 3 console versions, none have achievements or trophies. Sure, this game was ported to Vita with trophies as Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus. But, no trophy love for the console? How can I show people I beat Master Ninja mode without taking any damage, collected all the golden scarabs on every difficulty, and beat every mission in mission mode? Okay, maybe I didn't do any of that. But, someone might have.
