would this be considered a shameful platinum?

216 posts in this topic

Most mine are easy, but games I wanted to play, like minecraft story mode, Life is Strange etc but those are fine to have because it takes time, especially if you're exploring like I did so idk what that guys talking about who said its just a movie plus press some buttons, maybe thats how you played because you just wanted a platinum quickly. Regardless, Idk how people post a screenshot of road bustle platinum or whatever on the PS4 community as if they did something worth noting or worth showing people.

I think shameful is a bit too extreme, but I certainly think these trophy-only kind of games lesser the value of what a platinum is with each entry, but hey that’s my two cents.

When I started trophy hunting just a few months ago I played a bunch of these BS platinums and now I regret it. Kind of feels like it takes away from the other games on my list that I really enjoyed or at least appreciated enough to get the platinum. Not ashamed but feels cheap and if I could hide it without the little H I probably would consider it. I’d save my $1 personally.

Ï understand where you are coming from but My Name Is Mayo in particular I feel like, is kind of an inside joke amongst trophy hunters and is therefore kind of a must have platinum! I just got them because of this reason!

 

I have 1 other platinum that. I'm ashamed of and that's Grass Cutter... That one I only got for the quick and easy platinum and I regret having it on my profile now, but in the end who cares! It's just some stupid accolades and as long as you are having fun nothing else matters!

I agree to this. I felt almost obligated to get the My Name Is Mayo platinums because of the inside joke. They were fun for an hour which was worth the 99 cents to me, and they're the only easy (low effort) games I platinumed. Low effort platinums are not worth more than a dollar as it is, and Road Bustle looks dumb. At least My Name is Mayo knows its dumb.

Shameful platinum? No. Best GOTY? Definitely.

Eh. Maybe a little. But it's up to the individual of what they think is shameful. 

The game probably shouldn't have a platinum. I mean if The Walking Dead: Season 2 and Little Nightmares don't have a platinum, this game certainly shouldn't.

I'd never heard of it until I saw the sequel listed as upcoming when I was browsing the PS Store. I bought both because they're dirt cheap. The games seem experimental to me. I wanna finish up the first, and then move on to the second.

I wouldn't say I have a single BS game on my trophy list, well, certainly some easy ones (like kids games back in the day) but nothing like this, so I don't feel guilty about getting it. I had never heard of it till i recently watched a "10 worst PS4 games" video. I had some credit on the ps store and figured what the hell. I platted it in 41 mins lol. If I can plat the likes of nearly every AAA 40+ hour game I play, I've earned a "freebie". I won't feel bad or cheap about it. It still took effort, if not much more than mashing a single button.

No, because not every game needs to be Street Fighter/Dark Souls tier when it comes to trophies. Yes you can argue you are literally purchasing a platinum trophy, but even the devs knew about this and that's why the game is stupid in a way that almost makes it worth the ten or so minutes due to absurd it is.

 

Plus I doubt anyone would care what's on your trophy list except yourself. Plus should we say the same thing about AAA games with ridiculously high plats like Spider-Man or Ghost of Tsushima? Sure they require more effort than this game but the plats are still stupid easy to have that high completion rate. 

 

Basically what I am saying is having a "freebie" platinum or even a plat with almost a 50% completion rate is nothing to be ashamed of.

It's only shameful if it makes the trophy hunter feel ashamed. I have a couple of fast and easy (and about to be a lot more soon) platinums but I'm actually enjoying those games. Hell, some of my favorite games are quick, easy ones. I actually have a lot more lengthy and moderate difficulty games I'm ashamed of getting because I didn't have that much fun playing them.

 

However, if we're talking about others examining our profiles I feel if it's balanced then there's nothing to feel ashamed of. Whether it's balanced between the easy and harder games, higher quality vs lower quality, short or long, etc.

 

Here's a few recommendations for short, easy/kinda-easy platinums that I enjoyed: Sayonara Wild Hearts, The Sexy Brutale, Icey, Yoku's Island Express, Donut County, Bastion, Transistor, Undertale, Tesla vs Lovecraft, and Cat Quest.

I don't consider it shameful for a certain reason but it really only involves me and a friend. He hates mayo so much that he refused to even play either game in principle...til I made a bet. When 1 cane out we decided to see who can get the plat fastest since he's always bragging on his button mashing skills. Well, the bet was loser owes 50$. I won. So when 2 came out we did the same thing. I won again. So some of these piss easy plats can be for fun. I personally gave up on any I don't have left on my purchases. The leader boards have become an even more of a full time chore, so I'm trying my best to work on a massive backlog and get to my roots: hunting trophies because it was a fun task (for the most part) without boosting for days on games with others included. So long story short, mayo 1&2 are a strong exception for me. Lol

I think it's a waste of time playing a game like this, but that's just my opinion. Anyone can play whatever game they would like. I've never felt shame having played any game, but Coffin Dodgers got me pretty close.

If it had cost anything more than $1, than yes.
