Why do YOU platinum games?

267 posts in this topic

It's easy to get carried away for most to just start playing games for the sake of earning trophies, earning another platinum particularly. I've fallen prey to this in the past with older accounts, and have since started over telling myself I'll only play games I either know i'll like (some are a given from certain developers) or after checking some gameplay on youtube, a game that I at least think i'd really enjoy playing.  There's only one game on my list as of yet that i thought would be more interesting than it was.

 

I don't earn plats for others to congratulate me for, or to show off to the community.  For me it's all about just playing the games you love to the fullest. I don't find finishing the story once a done deal, and then moving on. In a case like the last of us, you'd be doing the game a huge injustice by just doing one playthrough. Platinums let you experience all of the best parts of a game (some you might have never found/tried/experienced), but unfortunately the worst as well (looking at you unwanted MP trophies).

To do everything and experience everything in a game that I find already enjoyable.

 

And I like seeing the number counter go up on my profile

For me getting the plat or "100%" means I have finished the game, and can move on to something else. There are some games I don't plat, usually games that require more than 100 hours I find simply too long. 

 

Before trophies I would always aim to finish a game on it's hardest setting (if it was not crazy hard) and finish all the side activities etc. Collectibles never interested me, but my old gaming habbits net me the Platinum in most games, or maybe 80% of the trophies anyway so I may as well finish the job!

 

I also like having a record of all the games I "finished" over all these years.

Not sure if i already replied to this topic, but it's an interesting question to revisit every few years.

 

Right now: i dont really know, i guess most of it just comes from boredom and habit, and because i only really feel like i finished a game after completing it.

I even burned out from gaming early this year and didnt play anything (except cod mw campaing when it was on plus) the past few months. Now i'm playing a little here and there again, and even though i'm much more relaxed about 'progress' and playing more for fun i still find myself working down the trophy check list.

Because I have an unhealthy addiction to virtual collectibles, and platinums are particularly shiny.

Plus, they're good for showing that I liked a game enough to want to accomplish everything in it.

My cousin and I have a friendly rivalry over platinums, so that's basically why I do them.

 

I go for quality platinums by and large, whereas I give him a lot of grief over his My Name is Mayo, Mr. Massagy, and Little Adventure on the Prairie platinums.  Basically call him a trophy slut since he doesn't care where they come from!

It's fun and I enjoy it. Nothing else.

I enjoy collecting all the trophies and getting the platinums, gives me a sense of accomplishment, and helps pass the time when there’s not much to do.

For two simple reasons...

 

1. Because I love video games.

2.(Most importantly) To let people know i'm an extraordinarily skilled and gifted gamer and achieved and tasted greatness many times over.

Long answer, aids in getting everything out of a game and, depending on the game, it's fun.

Short answer, crippling completion based OCD.
