Why are the percentages of the trophies of Bound so low?

18 posts in this topic

I'm not saying that the game is easy to complete because i can understand the difficulty of the speedrun trophies... but every time that i check my list of rarest tropies I see some of them, like getting all the collectables of a level, so high up on the list surpassing other achievements like the platinum trophy of Catherine (which by the way took me almost 6 months to get while the collectables trophies of bound took me just half an hour).

Why is that?

I hated the game. So that may be a factor too. I beat it once and found it really dull and tedious. But PS+ as mentioned is probably a larger contribute than just not liking it like me. If I at least liked the game, I'd do more than just beat it. Not the speedruns, I hate those, but I'd at least do more. But I don't' like it.

Rarity usually is a good indicator as to how difficult it is to complete a game in one form or the other. But games that went through a PS+ period will always have lower rarity ratings. What a weird thread, though.

This game in particular had ridicolous percentages even before it went on PS+, that's why I'm asking. It simply doesn't make sense that a simple trophy that can be easly obtained through a guide on YT has a 1% rarity...

The platinum rating was at around 1% (about a week or two after I got mine) and most of speedrun trophies 2%+ when I obtained it when I bought it. The majority of people who play PS+ games don't intend to platinum them at all, which is always why it drops. That and people generally tend to avoid speedrun trophies and this game really isn't for everyone. It's one of those games that just divides opinions and I reckon there were quite a few people who just didn't bother because they didn't enjoy the game. It has some challenging trophies, which is likely while others didn't bother with the easier speedrun trophies. I just don't see why this is a topic of interest or even worthy of discussion. Which is also why I won't really bother replying anymore.

All threads are welcome in this forum, don't worry :)
I saw you got the plat, congrats! I got the game but I found it to be very boring. Do you have any tips or used any good videos for the plat?
Maybe there are some tricks i am not aware of.. :giggle: Feel free to PM me about it ūüĎć

I agree.  There's something more going on here than just being on PS+.  Maybe people really really dislike platforming as a dancer?

Even with a guide, some of the moves you have to make are pretty nerve wrecking. Even the collectables require a fair bit of work. I did one of the speedruns but after that I stopped.

I also think that peoples who found it not so hard are just very good on platforming.

For exemple; shary96, i'm sure u will say the same about crash bandicoot's platinum trophy, that for u, this is/was an easy plat (which is not rlly the case tbh ><).

Tbh, i got the plat few days ago on Bound and i understand what u mean; it gave me the feeling that it's "doable" too; but for "normal" or casual gamers, i think many of them will never get this platinum; and so u can not say that Bound is so easy to plat.

Not sure if everything i said is understandable, but well ><

This is true.

I'm not quite sure myself how it all exactly factors. Considering the help resources out there the speed run trophies should not...be harder than time trials like Gran Turismo 5 or Mirrors Edge. I wonder if a unique demograph bought this game. The premise itself is rather unique.

This is pretty easy to explain :

 

Did people enjoy Bound ? Meh... (rarity drop, playing games you like always help you to push further, good games for many peoples have a bigger % than games nobody love that much but it also depend on mixed factors here like difficulty or estimated time )

Bound is difficult for a majority of people ? Yes (rarity drop, we don't care about personnal opinion here, it's difficult for a majority, that all you have to count)

Bound is ps+ ? (rarity drop, self explain)

Bound have a long platinum ? No

 

In this case it's not a very good game for many people and that why he got that rarity if (and only if) you mix with the fact that is difficult for many peoples  :

I liked Bound a lot. Beautiful game and a fantastic soundtrack. Most of the platinum is easy, also the 100% run is doable after a few tries. The Cautious trophy however was terrible and did nearly stop me from getting this:D
