Hardest Platinum?

80 posts in this topic

For me, my hardest was Metal Gear Solid 3 just because of those frog collectibles. Most grindy for me is Far Cry 2 and Grand Theft Auto 4. I'll never do those again if you paid me. Stress central.

The majority of mine have been relatively easy do to being from easy game but do have the odd couple which aren't as easy but if I had to choose one I have to say either Beyond: Two Souls for the ps3 or Tales Of Xillia also for the ps3

Personally I've always disliked when people have personally asked me this question because it always comes with expectations, people have seen your profile and ask you 'what's your hardest game' they're looking for you to say the games they think are the hardest and if you don't, it's like you're somehow saying that they're easy and thus you're trying to be an egomaniac or whatever. Either that or they want something that generally is considered easier than something they've played for the 'my epeen is bigger than yours'.

 

I think there's so many factors to what truly makes a hardest completion for a person, it's easy to just say your rarest achievement or pick the one most people rate 10/10 etc. but I find it comes down not only to stuff that's personally more difficult for you but also the time of your gaming life in which you did it and how you went about it. You could do a game that's considered easy on easy mode, but decided to play on hard, even though there's no achievements for difficulty, or you could play an easy-ish game but it's the first time you ever touched the genre etc. and maybe you've played objectively 'harder' games afterwards but improved at the genre enough in that time that it's not 'hard' for you at that later time.

 

Many who ask me always expect either Injustice (PS4) as its my rarest by percentage or Super Meat Boy because of their reputations. The game I consider my hardest actually doesn't even come to people's minds, it's Grid 2, and this is where the context comes into play... Not only did I do everything start to finish on the hardest difficulty (as I do with any game) but it was also the first real driving game (aside from kart racers and the like) I've ever really played. I did play NFS:U on PS2 a little bit, can't remember if it had a difficulty selection but odds are I'd have stuck with normal, I had GT4 which I played for all of 5 minutes. Aside from kart racers like CTR/MK/DKR and games like WipEout/FZero I've never given racers a crack. Since then I've improved massively and can take on harder racing games with much more ease and could probably eat Grid 2 for breakfast, but, there's no point just thinking how you could do a game NOW, but instead, how it was at the time you did it, and for me, Grid 2 was the hardest completion, it took the most effort from my part.

Uhhh... I'm kinda new here (first trophy 3 months ago), so my collection of plats is pretty small...

 

Rarest that i have atm is Rayman Origins, but except for few Time Trials game was really easy for me, and even those didn't made me dedicate more than 20 minutes.

 

Imo it would be Sound Shapes. Yeah... Just for Death Mode alone. I hope i'll have something harder to brag about in 2019, lol

Looking through my trophy list has made me realise how much of a scrub i am :) I dont really have any super hard ones. I tend to start games and just get distracted. I

 

I would say the uncharted games. The first game i got stuck on the last boss forever not sure why it took me so long.. And the 2nd one i remember getting stuck on the bit where you in the rail yard..

 

I am going to make more of a effort to finish a few more harder games in 2019.

The hardest platinum trophy I´ve obtained so far was The Evil Within 1 on Akumu difficulty.

 

It was so frustrating and hellish that sometimes I had thoughts to throw the controller against the floor, because it was very hard.

 

when everything around you can kill you in one hit and you has to be repeating over and over again the same part of the scenario.

 

It was a horrible but satysfying experience.

I would say Fairy Fencer F. Not difficult because of skill, but grinding those 10,000 enemies was excruciatingly repetitive.

 

Similarly, I am working on the platinum for Omega Quintet. It isn't difficult, but it is made by the same company iirc so it has the bogus "grind until you die" trophies. Luckily, I learned from my Fairy Fencer F pain and developed a strategy. Now when I grind for the platinum, I usually call my grandmother, who is very talkative. It takes my mind off of how boring it is.

I dont think, its hardest platinum road. 

I have platinum from granturismo sport and it was 2 more difficult, I need 361 Hours for it. 

 

Trackmania turbo I play about 30-40 hours and I got last 10 tracks for platinum.. So 

100 people 100 Opinions..

I look at Super Meat Boy and Crypt of the Necrodancer and my jaw just drops considering the time investment you must make to really play it enough to nail down the game mechanics and then from there, truly have to master them in order to earn the platinum trophy. I also have a lot of respect for humongous time investments of 100+ hour games. Especially if they're more on the obscure end.

I honestly didn't find any platinum on my profile really "hard". DiRT 3 took some trial and error for a few challenges, but it wasn't that hard at all imo! Steep was kind of a breeze to me aswell, and Motorstorm Apocalypse was way less bad than I expected it to be.

The Chronicles of Riddick.  Online was difficult to understand and tedious to achieve, even while boosting.  Story was a bitch in some places.  I replayed some sections over and over.  And over...

Most difficult Platinum was ORC SLAYER! I mean not in game play. Just difficult cause wanted to kill myself the whole time. I was seriously evaluating my life as a gamer during that game.

I am not sure it was a toss up between Ys VIII on PS Vita because the boss on Nightmare difficulty near the end the one that looks like a dragon was a real struggle for me to kill. Since you only had the character Dana to use and she is fixed at a low level with level 0 weapons or something like that. 

 

Or Valkyrie Drive on PS Vita in the challenge mode because of this Delude action you had to perform plus the suped up version of every character i found really difficult too.

 

But if i had to pick one i would say Valkyrie Drive as it was a more rewarding platinum in terms of difficulty to achieve for me personally.

Toss up between the binding of isaac plat and the payday2 crime wave plat. It's worth noting I got the death wish missions trophy when it was still required to do the pro jobs where 1 mess up and it was back to the beginning.

I'm probably going to go with the Binding of Isaac like @lurch_9944, or Enter the Gungeon. Although my rarest one is Flame Over. That took some serious effort, but truthfully I didn't find it all that difficult when all was said and done.

My latest and probably hardest platinum is Black Ops 4. Zombies and multiplayer was ok but Blackout... you need a lot of patient and dedication to get it, skill and some luck. Reznov and Shaw are the hardest characters to unlock inmo.

In terms of skill required, clearly "Against All Odds" from Oddworld, that one had me sweating quite a few times. 

That was my first platinum and I don't really remember it being too bad. What did you have difficulty with?

 

Personally my answer is probably Star Wars Battlefront. Those Master missions were a pain in the ass.
