Genius hardware designer by day, incredibly capable gamer by night — that's Mark Cerny. The PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 architect's gaming triumphs have been well documented up until this point, and his appetite for Trophy hunting seems insatiable. He's earned Platinum Trophies in Demon's Souls, Returnal, and Cuphead — three of the toughest titles on PlayStation — and now he's added Deathloop to the list.
Obviously Deathloop isn't quite as difficult as those other games we just mentioned, but Cerny clearly enjoyed Arkane's super-powered shooter a heck of a lot. On Twitter, he wrote: "So original… and so STYLISH, really deserved its Best Game Direction award at the TGAs. Thank you Arkane!"
Indeed, Deathloop won a couple of awards at The Game Awards 2021 — namely Best Game Direction and Best Art Direction. When it first released back in September, many critics went gaga for the PS5 exclusive, but it didn't actually win that many Game of the Year awards. Still, that's not going to sway Cerny, who's happy to call himself a fan.
Has Cerny beaten you to another Platinum? Break the loop in the comments section below.
"the knack man" don't think that's the best of nicknames.
I LOVE how Cerny almost never posts on social media but when he does it's usually because he's platinumed a title and wants to thank the developer. Add it to the list
A good dude and fellow gamer
Love these stories!
Don’t care about DeathLoop but Cerny is the gaming personality of the last few years and it’s a shame he didn’t get all the recognition he deserves in the press.
When he speaks, you listen.
Huge respect for the man.
Cuphead is probably hardest game i ever played. It requires a lot of time to gold every lvl. I still haven't finished it
I really want to go for the platinum as it’s just a very fun game to play but it’s a pretty big commitment!
@velio84 lolololol the loop of promo never stops. And we thought, it was over.
It’s almost as if he likes games Sony is promoting…
@ShogunRok So how long did it take to workshop the title from the original "Knack Creator Mark Cerny Is a Big Deathloop Fan" to get to "PS5, PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Is a Big Deathloop Fan"?
Desthloop is stylish; no doubt. Also with its implementation of Dualsense features maybe a better PS5 showcase than even Returnal, if not nearly as gripping. Most pressing of all though I can’t read a thing from 7ft and so I’ll get back to it
Played for 20 minutes and disliked the game. The concept was annoying, the character/story was not for me...the design was not my thing....
Well done Mark, I was tempted by the platinum on this game as I really enjoyed it. I got about 75% of the pots but having played the loop so many times up until that point it became a chore so didn't bother.
Hi there fellow gamers.
Mr. Cerny as beaten me again. I´m currently going for the Platinum on Deathloop myself, though I´m still missing quite a few trophies..... But I´ll get there.
And he is right, the game is stylish and unique. because it´s made by Arkane Studios who know´s what their doing.
Can´t wait to see what they´ll do next.
Cheers, stay safe good people and happy gaming to us all
With the Microsoft Bethesda buyout, losing Arkane was the biggest blow for me personally. Only just picked up Deathloop and it's sooooo good.
@Dogmanstar you know its not forbidden to buy xbox or gaming pc for more games
