Not really a hard platinum but there was one trophy that was a pain in the ass of the Assasins creed revelations ps4 version. ''Impress Warren Vidic''

then you have never played a really hard game ^^

Demon Souls was a difficult one and Dokuro on Vita ended up being quite tricky. Splatterhouse 'S' Ranks on Survival Arena were annoying

Flame over on the PS4 

 

You can't do the exploit of only having to do the last level like you can on the vita. The trophy for finishing the whole game without anyone being downed by fire was a real pain in the ass!!

Call of Duty Classic

Veteran difficulty was a serious pain. You die in 2 - 4 hits, soldiers have very high accuracy, checkpoints don't always trigger and there are no health packs. Since this is the only Call of Duty game in the franchise that has a health bar rather than regenerative health, you're up for a challenge since you essentially have to play good while taking minimal hits throughout the missions.

 

You were required not to make a mistake, and the Nazi soldiers rarely miss their shots. Definitely the hardest shooter campaign I've played and completed.

Hard to say really since I could name quite a few games from the top of my head I felt were rather difficult at one point or another but I'll pick this one since it is still my first ever platinum and whenever I think about difficult games this one definitely holds a special place in my heart ...

 

COD WaW:

Most of the games trophies really aren't that bad but once you get to the "Sum of all zeroes trophy" and the dreaded veteran campaign play through, shit really starts hitting the fan

The 1-3 hit health combined with sections containing hardly any checkpoints and the LEGENDARY grenade spam the germans/japanse soldiers in this game throw at you really makes this platinum a challenge to achieve in my opinion

For me Id say Devil May Cry 5. But tbh its really not that hard. It takes lot of practice but I think anyone can do it if they put the time in.

I think I need to max out a game that is truly difficult one day. lol

Resident Evil: Code Veronica.

 

Battle mode on the EU version was almost impossible. Would've gave up if not for OCD.

Until i get one of the really difficult fighting game plats, I might go with Jotun - Valhalla Edition

Especially the valhalla mode run (no damage taken /no powers used) really gave me a run for my money, since half the bosses are based on RNG when it comes to attacks. Would have abandoned the game had I not loved the artstyle so much.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered 

This game i could never get the 1000G back on the Xbox 360 for a few reasons the Best of the Best achievement and the Veteran mode i was not super good at FPS games back then even though it is my favourite genre alongside RPG.

Fast forward to 2019 after putting this game off since i started it back somewhere when it released i had been slowly chipping away at it and when i finally achieved the platinum trophy it felt amazing. Veteran mode after i cleared it for some reason felt easier than i originally remember not sure why maybe they did nerf it or maybe back then i was not as skilled in FPS games as i am now. Either way hardest sections i felt were the missile silo level and No Fighting In the War Room just because the first one you are out in the open with no cover and the second you are in a tight room with several entry points where enemies could spawn and shoot you dead. 

 

I am happy with this plat :D

On PS4 I’d pick Yakuza Kiwami.

 

If I could choose from my Xbox I’d say Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed. The game is also available on PS3 and it’s really bloody hard on expert.

 

I jumped in blindly thinking it’d be a fairly easy racing game as it looked child friendly. Oh my god was I in for a ride...it’s my most played game on Xbox at 380 hours. I don’t have 100% as I’m missing local co-op achievements (one of them requires four players I think) but it is THE game I’m most proud of. It is legit a 9/10 in difficulty without using any of the glitches available. Definitely worth a play through, I would assume it’s much more fun with friends.

Not long done this one myself and the bits you mentioned were tough. Best of the best took me a few hours of rinse and repeat.

Yeah that is what i sort of did, First time i attempted Best of the Best i was just getting frustrated, it felt like it was one of those trophies where the stars need to align, room temperature has to be perfect, nobody in the house everything is quiet and the trophy Gods have to be with you. lol But yes there was a lot of repetition on the journey to perfection with this trophy for sure!

I'd say mine was: Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life

The number of restarts I had to do, in order to trigger glitched cutscenes, was nightmarish.

I'd say Yakuza Kiwami...The car chase scene in Legend Difficulty was definitively nerve-wracking. Next one on my hard-to-Plat list is Hollow Knight...that will take some time.

Star Wars Battlefront, Is by far the hardest platinum that I've done! The multiplayer was easy but a grind, But the missions were so annoying! Co-Op is the best way for the survival missions though! Huge thanks to Couch for helping Me!

Yeah battlefront 1 was my hardest. Sessions never worked for me so I had to do most solo. Just got all the mp trophies minus 500 hero kills and rank 50 on bf2. Just need that 2x and 3x xp to count towards my rank and not characters. Lando doesn't need to be rank 50 lol.

Dying light was my most tedious. I played on day 1 and had to wait for patch after patch bc I 100% all the collectables so many times but no trophy. Now I'm having the same issue in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 for the same reason bc patches changed the gun requirements. The load timea are keeping me from finishing that one. I seriously only need to get all primary weapons again. I've finished that game twice 100% with no luck. So now I'm doing it fresh...again with the newest patch.

None of the characters need to be leveled up to Rank 50 if that is what you are thinking,  Just your overall rank.  I think you are making it much harder/slower!

Oh I know. It's just the xp boosts only ever give me character xp and not main progress xp. It's been pissing me off. It's always only eve done that for me. Xp across all modes my ass.

Easily Guitar Hero: Metallica for me, took me 8-9 years across two different accounts. Gave up on it quite a few times because of the perfection needed for the Creeping Death trophy. I have quite a few other rare platinums, but mostly it's just learning controls, strategies and a few days/weeks of grinding the difficult parts. Guitar Hero: Van Halen is the hardest I've attempted, but even at the skill level required for Metallica, I'm nowhere close.

Battlefront 1 and 2 aren't hard at all, they aren't even very long either.

Well yeah, it's just getting some of the misc trophies in 1 that sucked. Like the Walker trophy mostly in 1 and in 2 the starfighter ones. Other than that the game is just a grind. I can't think of too many difficult plats that aren't a grind minus maybe bo3. And I've only finished mp on that game.

If we're purely talking platinum trophies here, probably Grand Theft Auto IV for the PS3. Not difficult per se, but a long online grind.

 

Were it not for the DLC, Nioh might be up there for PS4. The additional NG+ modes that come with each add-on make getting the platinum a breeze, but the 100% is still pretty challenging.
