250 Hours to Platinum?!!!

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 every game ever... Like literally every game. Obviously if you rush through it knowing whats up its quicker.

Curious on the cheats, do they only disable trophies while they are active or permanently thereafter for that save file?? Be interesting to know, how have they worked the mechanic in other games?

 

Looking at all off PPs RDR2 pages, looks like plat will take a while due to how all the TGs will lay everything out for us

 

There seem to be 15-20 sets of collectibles, and each collectible set have there own page. Meaning we will either need:

 

- 15-20 pages or videos open at once,

- Complete 1 set at a time

- Get what we can naturally, then refer to guides, using 1 of the first 2 methods

 

We may get a region by region collectible guide eventually but bet for a while they will all be separate guides done like PPs due to the sheer number

 

 

Knowing what to collect in a region when you first encounter it could save tonnes of time, but does anybody really wanna look through 20 pages of guides at each location to check if anything can be done there......I doubt it as it would ruin the experience, even for me.

 

Think its safe to say, for the first few mths, anyway u try and execute it, plat will be long, so just try to let them come naturally until u are ready

 

 

 

Anyway, the companion app, anybody getting this?? Gives u a map on ur phone which u can mark and stuff, cool eh

I know, but even a beginner following a decent guide can get good times as well

 

My point being is that for people like u and me, fine we know that, but others may look at a estimates and think that they are completely accurate, given the belief that getting it a 100 or so hours is impossible

 

And its not entirely true about knowing whats up first, a complete beginner has platted HZD in 18hrs referencing TGs occasionally. But guess that is pretty simple

 

Im only pointing it because as I say, some may think that 200+ hr plat is a done deal

I'm playing it right now, seems like you can't see what objectives you need to do for each mission. Might need to replay every one, until a guide is there.

Fair enough man.

My plat will probably be around 200hrs depending on if I get bored of the world. Witcher 3 took me 150hrs because I just loved doing everything I could.

PP has done a list, check that before a mission if u want. Apparently u can spare 34 golds

Not saying he's wrong but just throwing this out here. His Kingdom Come: Deliverance trophy guide said 150 hours to complete and it took me around 85 hours.

Yea, to be honest, I shouldnt bother, people will believe what they want, I cant control anything. With videogames, ultimately either way, it doesnt matter and we know that, think thats the problem.

 

I wasnt going to get this, but think I will be now and that companion app.

 

I probably spent few hundred hours or so getting that platinum time down on W3, but I found it exciting because at the end of it, I could pass the knowledge on to others and the guide has saved individuals 50hrs or so, who wished to use it I guess

 

 

Actually, I probably wont get plat cuz I h8 multiplayer grinds, I will perhaps just focus on the SP stuff

 

 

Anybody got any thoughts on the cheats, will they disable trophies permanently, or just while they are active?

Nice so you did speedruns of W3 to get plat quicker? 

 

How could you not want to pick this up!!! It looks and sounds amazing. Although I would understand if you don't really seem interested in it.

There not wrong from their POV, I just guess I wish they would name it a GENERAL ESTIMATE as opposed to ESTIMATE

 

That way we know its based from a general perspective rather than a FITS ALL perspective which they appear as

Yes, but It wasnt for me how weird that sounds, it was to inform others on how to save 50+ hrs. The guide is on playstationtrophies and Gfaqs, when I was a guide writing baby and not that familiar with this site

 

I really want it, just too much to play, little time to spend, but I may put few other games off to play this ;)

I'm excited/ not excited. I just don't have the time to invest in huge games that are this long. Probably going to have to time it when I'm on vacation.

It sounds good, but its ruinng my gaming. I love min/maxing platinum times and passing the knowledge on, but writing the guides afterwards takes ages and destroys me

 

Ive recently decided to just focus passing.on the info through utube videos, im.hoping that will help me to play more games, guide writing becomes annoying

 

 

Ive got 1 or 2 things to finish then my backlog is clean and I know RDR2 will suck a lot of time no matter how I approach it. Like u though, I dont think.I.can stay away, im hoping I can juggle 3 games at once as opposed to 2 ;)

 

Hopeully just focusing on vids will help a lot and will erase any negative thoughts about playing this as well

 

 

Ref cheats if anyone wondering, on RDR1, cheats disabled saving. If its same here you cant enable a cheat, fulfill trophy requirements and then disable for the trophy trigger....thats what I was hoping

Who cares how long the platinum takes?  The game will be amazing and you'll love every moment of it.

um... everyone here, on a trophy site mind you, cares how long and how hard it is, some want it shorter, some want it longer. some want it easy, others want it a bit more difficult. That's what this site is for. Everyone cares.

I’d also like to remind everyone of how people originally thought Monster Hunter World would be a 500h+ platinum. Early estimates like this are rarely ever correct and should be the last thing to impact your opinion on the game or your spending decisions.
