Platinum or 100% which is more important to you?

128 posts in this topic

First of all apologies if this has been asked before. I was just curious as to whether people prefer the platinum or 100%? Personally I prefer platinums but with so many games introducing DLC these days which mean even getting the platinum means you are not even close to getting 100% it just annoys me.

 

For example I want to platinum Uncharted 3 on my profile before they get released on PS4. But I know the maximum I will be able to get is about 50% as I don't enjoy the online version.

 

So I guess my question is from a gamers perspective what gets more credit so to speak 100% completion status or platinum trophies?

I avoid DLC games like plague because 100% is more important.

I always try to go for 100% whenever possible. I have no real problems with DLC as I always like to have everything in the game anyway (unless it's a total cash grab), so...

I just go for plats personally, if a game is exceptional I'll grab the DLC and if that has trophies then I'll push for 100%, however if the game was good but not amazing I'll leave it at just the plat unless the DLC is dirt cheap in a PSN sale :)

I was going to post but what DJ said is pretty much what I was going to say :P

Says with drive club on their psn profile card.

getting 100% in most cases requires more skill so definitely 100%.

Should have added a poll to the thread really. 

 

Platinum for me. It takes too much effort to keep up with all the DLC, and you may have to hold onto a game you're done with because DLC might come out some day, even though you are done and done with the game. May as well trade it in now before the value reaches rock bottom.

100% for me. If you have the platinum but don't have the 100%, you haven't actually finished the game imo.

I would never start the game if I knew they were adding crapload of DLCs...

I really think we should have the ability to make sure that any DLC that we don't own is not added to our trophy lists. My completion would jump nearly 10% if I could wipe off unowned DLC trophy icons from my account. DLC should only affect your completion % if you own it. For that reason alone, the platinum is definitely more desirable than me having to fork out yet more money just to get 100%.

100%

Platinums are alright but my I used to get a bit bummed out when new games didn't get them (Spelunky, Ground Zeroes...)

Platinums are good enough for me. Alot of dlc is overpriced as it is, or games like Batman have way to much.

DLC isn't a new game though, it's an add-on to a game. Thus, if you own the game that the DLC is a part of, the DLC should be added to your list.

Neither. Playing the game for fun is and constantly looking at the trophy list isn't my type of fun! :D 

 

AKA not a trophy hunter. I may be a completitionist on some games (100%).

I'm a completionist so 100% is more important to me

 

However, speaking in view of my old account, as long as I had the platinum, I was happy

In my case, I consider a game complete when I get the platinum, unless I really like the game in question. In this case, I will buy the DLC's, because I want to enjoy everything that game has to give me and try to achieve the 100%. I'm not a completionist and don't want to be, because I want my profile to show who I truly am as a gamer. For example, I want it to be clear for people who check my profile that I got 100% in Uncharted 3, because I love this game and its multiplayer to death, not because I'm an obsessive completionist, that kept bashing this fantastic game and this awesome multiplayer the whole time they were trophy hunting on it.

I go for just plats, unless I have the ultimate editions. The cost of a DLC is the same price as a brand new game on flash sale, which I'd prefer.
