So we buckled and got our first gaming console. I haven't played on one since 1991. It was Nintendo and even then I didn't own one, just used a friend's, and wasn't even that great at anything. My gaming experience has been on my PC and only with a couple of games since about 2008. Before that... Colecovision in 1982. :D
Now, I am the proud owner of a PS4, and have purchased Destiny, Diablo 3, Project Cars, DriveClub, Motorcycle Club, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Murdered: Soul Suspect, and the game it came with The Last of Us. I know. In four days I became a gaming animal. Right now I'm really digging on Destiny. LOVE it. I made an Exo Hunter and can't get enough of it even though I'm just Level 4 and don't even know how I got there.
My questions are (that I can't get info on online so easily):
What are Trophies?
What purpose do trophies serve to the PSN user?
Can you engage in party chat (I have headphones/mic) without including people as "friends"? How? (My husband and I don't just want random people out there we don't know on our friends list. Currently, no one we know has a PS4 to add to the list, but we still want to chat in-game with the headset especially when he's on Project Cars.)
I've got a Thrustmaster T80 racing wheel, and can't find the touchpad button on the wheel (everything else is there) where am I missing this? Driveclub tells me to hit the touchpad, and I can't with the wheel hooked up.
Anything else a new user might need to know?
(If you play Destiny or Project Cars are any good at them, let me know so I can ask specific game questions about them, if you don't mind!) :)

Relax. . . I got this
Trophies are kind of like medals, it's like the Olympics where you get your gold, silver and bronze
They pretty much give you bragging rights, If you've got all of the platinum trophies for the game people will know you're good (or that you've been playing for a long time. . . perhaps a little too long)
? Uh. .. well I think that. . . uh I'm not sure (I don't have a PS4) I'm sure there is party chat so you'll just have to send an invite
For that driving wheel you might just want to have a look in the controller options and see if you can change the input (if you know what I mean)
uh. . . what should a new user know. . . well (I'm so tired right now but I will go on ! DooMguy doesn't stop !) you might want to check out the free games, there should be some free download games lurking on PSN somewhere, I think planetside 2 is one of them and with PS plus they basically throw monthly games at you
When it comes to destiny I know what I'm doing
DooMguy's my name
Destiny is my game
And my titan doesn't feel pain
(Maxed all guardian classes and subclasses with a lot of legendary armour and weapons) Ask me anything
Defender titan doesn't need to "take cover" I am THE cover0
