Anyone else "grinded" away from the Platinum?

I'm actually kinda keen to give it a go even with bloody MP trophies. It'll probably take years but hopefully it will happen.

It's a lovely game but when it comes to trophies and also when all of us are playing it so early so there is no 100% guide out for us, its a really pain in the ass with all those missables... I'm still going for platinum, but I'm not gonna rush it. It might take a couple of months or it might take a couple of years for me to get this platinum. Who knows?

Helpful insight; now those 100-hour work weeks really don't make any sense....

haven't started the game yet, so i can't relate :dunno:

 

i waited ~8 yrs for this game, so waiting another 1-2 weeks for optimized trophy guides + time-saving exploits was the only logical choice for me ^_^

Makes sense for folks getting those paychecks. I don't get how that translates to any gamer burning themselves out though.

I'm currently in chapter 6 with over 100 animals skinned, I'm not done with the story but I don't think that I will lose interest or motivation.

 

I hate collectibles but i really enjoy hunting and because of the atmosphere and detail I could spend years playing this game.

Currently at 118/178 animals skinned and around 2 hours into the Epilogue. I'm wondering daily if I'm going for this platinum or not. I love the game but it's just too crazy what needs to be done. I'll probably grind out most things except for the gold rush that will be something for the future.

I still got Spyro the 13th of November which I'm really looking forward to and Persona 5 which is also a 100+ hours platinum :jaymon:

never planned to. too crazy. just going to do main story and whatever side stuff comes along that isnt too bad 

still on fence with Spyro, and kind of want Darksiders 3, and to start Yakuza. plus Smash will be out in a month, which I've lost interest in regardless, finishing red dead asap as more games will be out soon.

I wish there were no missable trophies.  I don't mind that it'll take me a year or so but I don't want to replay the game again.

I'm not a serious trophy hunter so it isn't saying as much for me... but I knew from the moment I preordered the game that I would never even try to Platinum RDR2. I'm not even going to get Gold Medals for all the missions. The road to the Platinum in this game is way too tedious for me. That being said, I'm having a blast playing it. It's a great game. But I think the RDR2 Platinum is only for the real gluttons for punishment. That takes a level of commitment that I know I don't have.

 

Thats my exact thoughts. Going for those Gold medals is going to destroy my experience for myself. So I'm just enjoying the game for what it is

Maybe this is isn't the right game for you to do Platinum.

I would suggest to only Platinum the games you aloso like. Gaming is done for fun, not because it is a stupid chore. 😉
In RDR1 I for example didn't do the poker games, becasue I don't like those. As for the feathers in assassins Creed2, I kinda liked that one. Just wandering around and visiting places. And that is also how I play this game, I like to explore the wild and discover nature and try to track/skin/study every animal to 100% completion. Also I like fishing, and finding new species.

I will be going for it purely because I find I enjoy the grind. I’ve put 100+ hours into it already with 130/178 animals skinned and I still enjoy playing every moment and doing all the hunting.

 

The gold medal missions will be the only thing I won’t enjoy probably but I’ll be doing that on a new game instead of replaying them.

I got %50 percent of trophies already and that's without the multiplayer but the last 6 trophies are going to take me longer than the other 25+ combined.  I am about 60-80 hours in, in just one week so for now I need to step back and take a break because I am a little burnt out but I hope over the next year or two I can put a little time into red dead here and there to clean up the plat.  It all depends on weather or not I enjoy the multiplayer tho.  All my friends are on Xbox so I don't know if I can grind rank 50 without having friends to play with it could get boring.

I would have gone for 100% if there were no trophies anyway like i did for GTA IV before i downloaded the trophy patch (twice in fact) and i enjoyed every minute of red dead redemption multiplayer and GTA online so i doubt the platinum will be a chore for me.

I’m going for it and I’m enjoying it so far. I’m only chapter 2 as I’ve been doing far more exploring than missions and I’m having fun going for the animals. 

 

Not excited for the gold medals but with the replay feature it’ll be fine

Its not fine with the replay feature. You dont keep your stuff. Your character is reset on the missions. Try it out.

Oh I didn’t realize that. What do you mean by reset? Like no weapons?
