Pure VNs yes, and often you have choices to make which change the flow of the story. Others like the Zero Escape and Danganronpa series are VN hybrids, where there is a focus on story and conversation with characters, but they are periodically broken up with gameplay segments. In Zero Escape's case it is escape room puzzles and Danganronpa it is murder investigation and trials.

Ah. So kinda like those old choose your own ending type books. Thanks for the explanation!

I'm not really against easy Platinums as long as the game is good like Spider-Man for example. I really don't like the pay for Platinum games like I am Mayo and the autopopping stacking games though. Those games exist just to pop a trophy and they have completely devalued the trophy system. Platinum trophy count and profile levels are meaningless thanks to games like that.

 

There really needs to be a difference between an I am Mayo plat trophy and a game that will take 100 hours plus to plat.

true trophies has some algorithm to take the completion rate into calculation, basically the rarer the trophy is, the more point you will get.

I don't mind going from time to time for the easy plats, especially after finishing working on some of those that are really time consuming. Kind of a way for me to recharge my batteries before tackling something bigger, I guess 😅. But then again I'm not a real trophy hunter, so I don't know if it counts for anything 😅.

I personally don't mind them,  My first platinum was My name is Mayo and I am glad I got it because it is what made me want to start trophy hunting.  Now I use easy plats to fill the time where I can't figure out what I want to play.  Ya I don't have a ton of UR plats because most of the games I am really interested in are around %15-25.  I will continue to buy some easy games to fill my time until something catches my eye.  The next game I want to plat is Sekiro so I am basically just playing indies until then.

When I see such on other profile I never take that player seriously. It's basically cheating

I would never consider the danganronpa games to be easy plats. They just seemed ridiculously time consuming and RNG-based as well....

 

Dangaronpa: Another Episode - Ultra Despair Girls however was relatively straight forward.

I say having fun with the game matters more then the Platinum itself. Recently I played a game called Cat Quest which can be considered and easy Platinum but I still had a lot of fun with it and played it more cause it was cat based. xD

Easy plat games are fine, a dozen+ forum threads a week titled "Easy?" every time one comes out is getting a tad out of hand though.

If I have a hard or long plat, I'll usually follow up with a few quick and easy ones.

I don't play games just for platinums. Although I am definitely not turning down indie games with 3-4 hour platinums. 'Cheat' plats that don't really have a value as games outside their easy platinum are a no-go for me, though. I try to only platinum games I think are worthy of it and actually good, or at least have a struggle that makes the platinum something to be proud of. I platinumed Color Guardians a year or two ago just for the trophy (although it was a mediocre, perhaps decent game, I guess), and I regret having it on my list to this day.

I honestly don't care about easy/auto pop trophies. If people like the game and love getting 100% i don't see a issue. But if you got 100 easy pop platinum's and want to brag about how awesome you are cuz you got so many plat's then i just sit here and laugh.

Easy platinum trophies are not cheating, I agree. It's cheating to me if you start to bypass the game's design by using technical glitches or messing around with save files or your PS4's software. Stuff like making the difficulty glitch so you can breeze through a game on Very Easy and get the platinum for the highest difficulty for instance. That's straight-up cheating, in my opinion.

 

That being said: I don't tackle "easy plats" at all, even if the game is super cheap. Unless it turns out to be GOTY material and you need to play it if you take gaming seriously. I'm proud of having more rare platinum trophies on my profile, achievements that I've had to work hard for. I don't mind getting the occasional Telltale platinum trophy - if the game is worth playing, I should add - but I definitely enjoy tackling a creative, challenging trophy list as well.

why do you give a shit brah? Okay its an easy plat but if you want to play the game its like cool, i mean Hellblade was an easy plat, God of War (2018) all those Ratilaka games are easy plats but so long as you have fun like who cares man.

 

Game for yourself easy or hard or just inbetween does not matter load games that are hard to your profile or easy just have fun. Like if you are one away from a mile stone i get it it bust out a My Name is Mayo or a Telltale Game but just make sure its one in your backlog otherwise pick another easy plat in your backlog but don't buy easy plats for games you don't want to play because you would be the cancer of gaming for doing that.

Play and do what you enjoy, it's not hurting anyone.

If a game i like has easy plat, i'll still play and plat it.

I won't go out of my way to buy a shitty game for it's easy plat.

I guess it can piss off some trophy hunters, it might seem to them like inflating your plat numbers with little to no effort while they tackle games that require more work to be done.

It's not cheating, you buy the game with your money and you complete the requirements (no matter how absurd they are) to gain that plat.

I feel like it's your money and your time and your joy. Who the hell care what others think of imaginary digital trophy that will amount to nothing in life. My point is to just do what makes you happy.

I wouldn't bother with easy plat games because they are boring or just lame, i'd much rather play something interesting, but what ever floats your boat.

Couldn't agree more. If a game has an interesting story / funny characters / etc., it shouldn't matter if it has an easy platinum or not. However, I'm not very fond of games that seem to just be made for easy plats like My Name is Mayo (if you can even call this title a game). Sadly, quite a lot of players support games like this because they want to increase their rank on the leaderboard, and because of this, some devs might tend to focus more on the trophies instead of the game which is sad because devs who actually put effort into their games might get overlooked because their trophies are "too hard".

There's nothing wrong with easy platinum games as long as you can really call it a game. Bigger issue is people stacking the same game that takes 15 minutes to complete 6 different times and getting 6 plats with very little effort.

Easy plats exist and if want to take advantage of them, then go for it. I honestly can't blame anyone for giving into the temptation; it feels like a requirement to make substantial leaderboard progress sometimes. It bothers me a little when people take advantage of them.

 

If you genuinely want to play a game that is a easy plat, good on you. I have no gripes with someone enjoying a game they genuinely enjoy.
