250 Hours to Platinum?!!!

58 posts in this topic

wow.

 

So @PowerPyx has his trophy guide up on review embargo as always (great job, guys) and it says 200+ hours ONLY FOR SINGLE PLAYER. So the multiplayer (which has about 17 trophies), which needs you to get to level 5, and, if GTA is any indication, will be 30 to 40 hours in length at least. Just wow dude, the game is getting 10s everywhere so at least you won't be bored doing it haha. Let's go get that son of a bitch.

Oh boy... This is the approximate amount hours it took me to get my GTA V platinum trophy! :awesome: I also done 100% the original Heist trophies at the same time!

 

Oh well, knowing how long it was to platinum GTA V, I won’t be surprised when jumping into Red Dead Redemption 2!

This has to be a JRPG at this point lmao.

 

This is on my radar for the next few rockstar sales.

I can not image this platinum feels like 250 hours. Rockstar delivers as always and I bet all of us will have a blast playing it and before you know it, the platinum is yours! Currently a score at 97 on metacritic and rated "Metacritic must play". Can't wait to start the game of the year! 😀

Weird. GTA V took about 80-90 hours to plat for me.

It wont be 250, no offense to any TGs, but Ive found generally, a game can.be platted 50% quicker than estimated times.

 

Those estimated times are usually based on a  GENERAL pov, caters to most people, but those going for trophies from the start, will get it quicker

You add that I wasted hours and hours doing the Heists with retarded randoms (almost all of them) and that I took my time roaming around LS.

Is there one massive timesink in particular towards the 100%? or is it just a slow accumulation of all the smaller things that add up to the 100% completion? i skimmed the trophy guide and i couldn't find anything that really stood out, the 100% was pretty short in RDR1, don't see what makes it so much longer here.

Did you get in on one of those XP exploits or something? Just getting to Rank 100 took me well over one hundred hours.

Its not, by that guide and what Devs say, campaign is 60, so PP reckons its a 140hr clean up

 

The replaying campaign missions for gold medals will be a timesink. U want to look up gold medal requirements before every mission and strive for golds 1st time, that will save 20-30hrs

 

Then there is the collectibles, these are time consuming before there is a lot and they are all over the place. The more collectibles a game has, the less efficient the guides will be on how to acquire them

 

To the point that getting them efficiently could save 10s of hours, so thats more time added because we will all be running around flapping like headless chickens 

 

And the campaign will only be 60hrs for casuals, I bet speedrunners will be coming in 10-20hrs

 

 

This games platinum will be all about execution, so much so that I bet ur looking at 75-200hrs depending on that

 

 

Take Witcher 3 and MGSV for example, those games have reported 150hr platinums, yet each could be done in little bit less than 50hrs.

 

Thats with a optimised execution though and with MGSV, its luck based right at the end of the plat, to the point that bad luck could make it take 20hrs longer (yes dispatch missions, dont walk away)

This is absolutely brilliant news. I was actually disappointed to hear the main game could be finished in 60 hours. But 200+ is fucking awesome .I would hate to have to platinum a game in 60 hours which I've waited 8 years for. For me personally the 200+ hours for the platinum is good news. Going to play the game for what it is and not worry about the platinum to be honest. But I should get it naturally as I'm going to look under every rock and examine every tree and squeeze every drop out of the lemon with this game. 

 

Unfortunately there is always that one ahole who complains "I won't buy this game because what were the devs thinking about making the game so grindy to plat etc etc etc" blah blah blah.

Nothing wrong with a game taking this long, honestly with rockstar games I expect them too take you a while to plat them

It's an open-world game, so a long SP isn't a huge surprise. As long as the world is well-populated and interesting (as opposed to just travel-grinding and the like), this is a good thing.

Does it really matter how long a game takes to plat if it's fun? I don't think so. As mentioned before Monster Hunter World took me 330 Hours + as well. I didn't care, it was fun and I still play the game to this day.

Honestly, I'm excited about that. I'll get my money's worth for the hard work they put in for the last 8 years. <3

No, not really, its just a trophy site and gives us something to chat about I guess ;)

Red Dead Redemption was one of my favorite games of the last generation and I KNOW I will love this game enough to platinum it. 

I am very excited about the amount of time it will take me to do so (even if 175 hours in I may rue it).

as if playing through that awful Red Dead Redemption multiplayer wasn't bad enough to platinum a game whose sole value lies in the great single player campaign, now we have this 17 bullshit trophies, phenomenal...
