@Splat Holy cow! Which one was it? Some obscure bronze, or something a bit more glitzy?

@Splat Blimey! That's almost twice as many trophies as me and I consider gaming my main hobby. What level does that make you?

@BearsEatBeets Level 33.

@RogerRoger It was a story related one for Titan Fall 2.

Forgotton Anne gets a mention for "terrible trophy list".

I'm totally fine with difficult trophies, even if it means I will never ever get them. But what I do hate or hidden trophies that are missable, and require you to replay hours of gameplay.

Hidden trophies should only be used for spoilers trophies (like story), all other uses of it kind of defeat the point.

@ForgottonAnneDevs Your trophy list sucks.

@Kidfried I also don't get why trophies are still hidden when friends have earnt them even when I've got them already.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@Splat Great effort!

As for me, platinum number 23 with MediEvil.

Not the hardest in the world. Mostly story related but had to go a bit out my way to bother to do all the lost souls (many thanks to @Quintumply for his logical guide on this very site) and the trophy obtained for dying in seven different ways took some effort as getting game over on the game isn't actually a common occurrence (plus the trophy seems to glitch unless you die in one specific way).

Congrats all.

I got the Platinum for Forgotton Anne. Like I said before, the trophy list is downright terrible and random, so I actually feel like me chasing them, detracted from the experience.

I got the platinum in Nier: Automata.

I nearly got the platinum in Shenmue.

Lovely stuff.

Terrible trophy lists contribution:

Final Fantasy IX - There's a trophy for killing 10,000 enemies which even with the speedy up boost turned on takes like a billion hours. And that jump rope trophy is absolutely unacceptable. Whoever came up with it should go to prison.

Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 - Back on PS3, these games required you to replay the game on every difficulty. It wasn't one of those if you beat it on hard you unlock the easier ones automatically situations. If you beat it on hard you still had to then go and beat it on easy. Appalling behaviour. They actually fixed this on PS4 so the trophies pop together. I didn't realise that until I'd already beaten the first Kingdom Hearts twice though.

Dark Souls / 2 / 3 - Maybe it's because I'm lazy but I absolutely hate trophy lists that arbitrarily require multiple playthroughs. If it's Nier: Automata I get it. Play it a bunch. If it's PaRappa the Rapper and it's about getting better and beating your own scores or whatever okay. But I hate that "oh you need to make a different choice right at the end to get a different ending so buckle up you gonna have to play this game like four times" thing. I did platinum Bloodborne and just fiddled the ending trophies using my cloud save but I never bothered with Dark Souls because of this.

Persona 4 Golden - Hardcore Risette. Not having that.

Hitman / 2 - No platinums? I can hardly think of games that don't have platinums that are more deserving or more fitting to have them. Not doing all that extra stuff for the %.

Also special shout-out to trophy lists that are proper easy but inexplicably have one really time consuming trophy that takes like twenty hours to grind out. Final Fantasy X's "hey fill in the entire sphere grid" trophy can get in the sea. I still did it because I'm daft. But sure.

@johncalmc Was Nier an honest platinum? I have no shame in saying I bought a couple of the trophies..

@Quintumply The guide was one of the first to come up when I searched for it but made much more sense to give the souls in the order it did to complete the soul and find the next one on the same level to avoid even more repetition.

Thrillho

johncalmc

@Thrillho Absolutely not. I wanted the platinum because of how much I enjoyed the game, and the game provided an easier out. I spent like thirty odd hours playing the game, and loved it, but I wasn't about to grind for another ten or so and not enjoy it. I found the trophy shop to be pretty neat actually, especially as it kinda fit in with the whole vibe of the game. And since you have to beat the game like three different times, at least, to even get to it, I felt cool with it.

@Kidfried Yeah, as somebody who won't look at a game's trophy guide until he's cleared its story (for fear of inadvertent spoilers) then I join you in calling for all missable trophies to have their descriptions visible. That being said, I'm reminded of Virginia and its bizarre, cryptic trophy descriptions, so there'll always be that one developer who wants to frustrate players regardless (although in the YouTube "trophy guide and roadmap" age, there's very little point because somebody, somewhere, will have cracked it at launch).

@johncalmc You say you "nearly" got the platinum in Shenmue...? As somebody who's playing it for the first time now, and who probably doesn't wanna play it again, what's the trophy which caught you out?

@RogerRoger I say nearly because I've only got story trophies left to do and presumably none of those are missable. I'm assuming that when I finish the story I'll have the platinum.

@johncalmc Ah, fair enough! Sorry, thought you'd completed it. Best of luck!

@johncalmc That was my feeling too. Going through for every single ending was too much for me but I like to feel I fully deserved the trophy.

Terrible trophies contribution - that Rayman Legends one for getting the top rank in those online daily challenges. You would have to play it every day for roughly four months, and that's if you're consistently ranking among the top players. Realistically you're looking at the best part of a year.

As my nan would have said, give over.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@johncalmc Another Dark Souls trophy favourite: "Oh hey, you've nearly found all the spells, but you missed the one which you get as a reward for finding the secret covenant by walking across to an invisible ledge and performing a bow in front of Knight Whatever-His-Name-Is and giving him 70 wyvern medals, which can be farmed from the dragons of Lowdroprate Keep"

Of course I did, silly me.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Fun Fact: I got through all three Dark Souls games without ever learning how to use magic. Still don't know how to use it.

@johncalmc It can waste certain bosses apparently, but not when I've ever tried it. I used in Demon's Souls a bit, then I abandoned it for some reason. As with most problems in life, a good sword and shield will sort you out.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.
