A Trophy to Remember

Recently I have begin to realize how pointless trophies are on PlayStation games. I cant remember the names of any of them and they aren't really important to game content, but why do i find myself so captivated by these digital self-esteem boosters. I realized to myself that there are truly two types of trophies. One awards a gamer for accomplishing an amazing feat. When you finally unlock it you feel accomplished. The other has become what real trophies are now. Participation trophies. The ones you unlock accidentally and with no real effort. In my opinion I think we should get to the roots and stop having 40 stupid meaningless trophies per game and there should be like 5.
