Platinum #100 recommendations

58 posts in this topic

I've completed 99 platinums and am wanting to do something special for number 100. 

 

A game doesn't have to meet all these criteria but it will give you an idea of what sort of thing I like! It's been a while since I played something longer and more involved so maybe I'd like to do a bigger game for #100.

 

Anyway, I like:   character customisation

 

                           large open world

 

                          ideally first person or at least not 'bird's eye' perspective (not critical)

 

                          costs under £20 (or there about)

 

                         Ideally won't require multiple playthroughs

 

                        Platinum difficulty not too high (important)

 

                        I much prefer exploration over tough combat

 

                        definitely no JRPGs!!! 

 

I've already got: Mass Effect, Dragon Age Inquisition, fallout4, Skyrim, The Witcher, Dragon's Dogma but something else similar to these would be good.

 

Thanks for your recommendations!!

This doesn‘t suit your requirements, however I would advise you to go for something crazy to make it more special.

I got Wolfenstein 2 as my 100th platinum and it was very satisfying :)

Horizon Zero Dawn, maybe? It doesn't fit all of your criteria, but it's a pretty iconic game for this generation, and would be a cool milestone.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I see you have that! Sorry.

Maybe have a look at your backlog ? ^^

 

What about Shadow of Mordor ? Or Mafia 3 ? Just cause 3 ? Far cry 5 ? Sleeping Dogs ? inFamous First Light ? Witcher 3 ?

 

Plenty of nice games, already started and just waiting for being done :D

I agree with this. While I would never be crazy enough to go for Wolfenstein 2, I decided to go for Cuphead for my 150th Platinum, which was definitely a challenging game.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance.  Fits most the categories and is on sale for the spring sale right now iirc.

I love the Surge, and am pretty damn close to the platinum, but I would like to mention that if someone is not skilled with the soulslike genre, they probably would find the plat difficult just by virtue of the game itself presenting quite a challenge.

You're quite right - I spotted that very quickly after I posted and switched it to a questionmark - you were just too quick for me 😉😄

Id go with Borderlands 3

                     ☝️

Large open world ✅

Character customisation✅

First person shooter✅

Costs under 20 pounds (not sure in ur region)

Not many playthroughs (2 at the least )✅

:platinum: not difficult (grindy but can also be done in co-op making it more fun )✅

Explore to uncover the map✅

 

Thank me later when u've already had a blast with the game!

  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Neverwinter
  • Worms Battlegrounds

Actually - one additional one that might be worth considering is:

 

Ld35fc2.png

 

Aside from being 3rd person and having a set character, I think it fits every one of your criteria - it's not JRPG (though it is Japanese) so it really depends on what parts of JRPGs turn you off, but it's a blast of a game.

I second The Outer Worlds, really good game. I recommend looking through trueachievements walkthrough to get all the trophies in one playthrough. Or 1 run on easy and a 2 hour pacifist speedrun that takes around 2 hours.

Yes, I will go back to those in the future. SoM I hated, Mafia 3 has glitched to hell on me and several 'full game' trophies didn't pop so I'm in a strop with it at the moment but I will go back to it! FC5 I'll do soon as I only have 2 trophies I think for the plat.

I would say Red Dead Redemption 2, but you might have to replay through it cuz you need to just 100% the game and some online trophies, so maybe not this game

I've got a few games already purchased: Greedfall, Warhammer 40,000 Inquisitor Martyr, Cat Quest, Final Fantasy7, Vampyr, Book of Unwritten Tales 2, Nioh, Pillars of Eternity.

 

Are any of those any good? Do any fit any of my criteria? Thanks!

If you mean FF7R, then that game was awesome and you should play it. Nioh was also good

 

Also, your name makes me laugh so thank you for that

I would pick FF7 but it's a JRPG.
