Hi fellow "Completionist" Hunters!

12 posts in this topic

Hi everyone! I'm pretty excited to be here on PSNProfiles as this is my first time actually signing up to the website after being quite familiar with it for the past few years. I was actually introduced to this website from a friend of mine who got me into trophy hunting on the PlayStation 3 console about 3 years ago. I was primarily a PC/Xbox gamer but grew up on the nostalgic PS1/PS2 era. I actually also brought a PS3 about a year and a half after the release way back 2007-2008 but unfortunately I had no interest in trophy hunting back then. Eventually just sold the console and went back to the Xbox 360. 4 years ago I bought the PS4 instead of the Xbox One and haven't really looked back since. And ever since then I've kind of kicked myself a little with frustration at the fact of not hunting back in the PS3's life cycle. So it's very painful knowing I'm a pretty fresh/newbie trophy hunter unlike most I've seen on here who have been hunting since the PS3's release, which is just insanity! 

Anyways, I'm here now and I've since had the urge to want to start a fresh account which will primarily be a "completionist" account so to speak. From my experience on this website is that I've seen a fair few people who strictly go after 100% completion rate on their profiles at all times. Only limiting themselves to games they know they'll complete and not just obtain that beautiful platinum, but to completely 100% the game in it's entirety and knock it off the list. Only problem, for some people I've noticed a pretty decent pattern, which is that they only seem to "complete" or even start games which aren't necessarily risky to their profiles e.g online server shutdowns, dead online multiplayer base, extremely grindy online games etc. Which I mean is completely fine, but I wanted a real challenge. I've had a few PSN accounts in the past which I achieved a few platinum's on, but nothing too serious. This time around I wanted to knock off games which were in a sense risky, grindy, and just what most wouldn't feel like completing, especially to it's 100% finish. I consider myself of having a "unique" type of OCD. I like things done perfect, and in an order which I'm completely satisfied with, both personally as well as gaming wise. And with me wanting to become a decent trophy hunter, I want be at the best that I can be. I wanted to start a game from a company which I heavily love which is Rockstar Games, and I wanted my very first platinum to be of a game which is both one of my all time favourites, as well as being decently difficult/risky which ended up being Red Dead Redemption. With the second installment only a short ways away I wanted to get the game done before October 26th and from the help of my real life buddies I achieved the 100% in just under a month! So I'm stoked to have my first game done, and ready to pump out Red Dead Redemption 2 in a few weeks as well as move onto other games most likely will return to Grand Theft Auto IV and the fifth installment soon which I'll need boosting partners from here, hence my swift arrival and introduction now. :) 

 

So there you guys have it, my boring and unnecessarily over the top introduction! I look forward to becoming a thriving member of this community both in the boosting scene as well as here on the forums in the not so distant future. If you read this in it's entirety than you deserve a cookie! :D

Welcome to the site.  A lot of players try to have 100% trophy lists, but with so many game glitches, sometimes a perfect list isn't obtainable, unless you replay games you already know for sure that all trophies will pop.  Good Luck!

Welcome. Nice work on RDR. I still need to beat the story mode for that one!

 

I don't really think much of a 100% account tbh. It never really impresses me. Not nearly as much as UR plats/trophies.

Thanks! Yeah most definitely it can be a pain. I ran into this issue on a previous account of mine in the past where I ended up putting in a game which was unobtainable due to server issues and a game breaking glitch which prevented the platinum. Hence why I take precautions before settling on a game, and I use a second account to test out games which I feel interested in completing before putting them on my completionist profile. I find this way to work quite well, but it's not for everyone though. It's more of a chore rather than playing games for the fun of them, but it works well for me. :)

Thanks! RDR is one of my all time favourite games and I've played it so much in the past that I knew quite well how to efficiently get the platinum done. Only thing I was concerned about was the dead online, which I got quite a lot of help from friends of mine who have played/completed the game. The story mode is amazing and getting the trophies is quite fun at times, especially when you go for Redeemed trophy, getting 100% completion in story mode is fun. 

 

I too feel like ultra rare platinum's and trophies are much more respectable over a huge pile of platinum's. I've seen so many people getting stacked games, horrendously easy platinum's for the sake of it and what not. I mean, each to their own I guess and if you find satisfaction in it then by all means go for it, but it's not my cup of tea. :)

Yeah, I feel the same way. I'm not against playing easy games. I mean, my collection is full of Telltale games and other easy plats, but I think the WHY you play it is important. I find no joy or sense of accomplishment in playing games like Mr. Massagy, Energy Cycle, or My name is Mayo, but like you said, to each their own. It's not like someone else's list affects how I play.

Yep. I haven't got anything against Telltale game hoarders since their earlier stuff is quite decent, especially The Walking Dead games and Wolf Among Us. So I know I'll be putting some of those on my list since I enjoy them. But I've also seen a lot of people frowning upon other hunters for having so many of them in their collection, kind of like the whole Hannah Montana platinum thing back in the day. But if you enjoy a certain franchise, or genre then go for it. The beauty of trophy hunting and having a site like this is the diversity that you see with different people's profile. I get inspiration from different people's collections which helps sculpt my own personal trophy hunting experience, helps me find and enjoy different genres of games that I probably would never have even played and much more. And you're so right on that last part. It's not like someone else's list is going to make me lose sleep at night if I don't particularly agree with certain games they've played. :)

Hello @Omirid Welcome to the site!

 

Glad to hear you are back on Sony's side as far as achievements go. I guess that "pling!" notification was too much to resist, right? ;) I see you will be going through the route of the 100% completion profile. That's one mighty and hard route to follow. Kudos to you for being sure of the kind of profile you want to have, I respect that. Personally, I'm not into 100% completion for the most part (as you can see by my messy, all-over-the-place profile that I have) but I do enjoy the games I play and try my best to get a Platinum or a 100% completion if it is within the realm of my possibilities. I try to focus more on having a good time and getting everything done, if possible :)

 

Anyways, hope you have a good time around here and that you get to enjoy the hobby in your own particular way. If you ever need help with the online of GTA IV, let me know as I am also pending to do most of the online there for the Platinum. See ya around! :D
