How devoted are you about collecting the bonus things in games? Characters, Music, Conceptual Art, Comic Covers, Cutscenes, etc.?

Do you wait until after the main events of the game or do you get what you can during the story?

I dont really push towards them, but its fun to get them.

Like in StarCraft II, you have to level up to get skins and decals, but you can only level up by playing the multiplayer mode. I have reached max level simply because i played tons of skirmishes xD

I love unlocking concept art even though I can just google it. I normally try and unlock all the goodies on a second playthrough or if I can redo missions then on the first.

Oh, I love to collect everything during the game. Well, at least after I beat the main plot of a game, otherwise then I'd try to get at least a 100% in the game. The tales series is great examples of this, like when I've played Tales of Vesperia, or Tales of Abyss, it's always great to collect everything on those games!

I try to collect things as I go, within reason. Some games take collectibles to a whole new level to a point where it's incredibly tedious (Assassin's Creed flags? Ergh).

I like exploring levels/areas in games to work out all it's secrets and get any extra weapons or treasures or collectibles though. :3

I tend not to collect anything in most games, as I find it to be a waste of time. Let's say that you've got yourself everything that there is in the game--what then? d: I play games for their stories only, to be honest. Once I'm done, I would just trade them into a store for other games.

I like collectibles. Something to go after when done with the main game. Or something used for better stuff. Gold Bolts in Ratchet and Clank...love my gold weapons.

Or the incredibly hilarious. Pigeons in GTA IV (or flying rats in game...made me giggle)...having to kill them. It's fun fun fun~

To be honest, only if there are trophies for that =)
Sometimes I complete it even without realizing I completed it... that's the best, though =D

I agree, Ash, when I got a new game for my XBOX I never checked the achievements until after I beat it. Its much more fun to be surprised by an achievement during gameplay.

I try my best to get them as I play through the story but if there is something I missed, I go back to get it later or I'd get frustrated. Total perfectionist right here.

Depends on the game. If it's a game like Batman: Arkham Asylum then I want to collect everything I can. If it's a game like Spyro or Crash Bandicoot then I could care less. It really depends how immersed I am into the game.

In-game collectibles only add to my completionist mentality to-do list ;___; I try to attain everything possible within one playthrough, but if not and it's able to be done in 2, then I'd play again. Otherwise, I don't like replaying games more than twice just for the sake of collectibles. Although I do like have limited/collector's editions of games :D
