Your Longest Time to Plat and Why

Just wondering which game has taken people the longest.

For me it's Table Top Racing: World Tour at 2 years and 7 months.

I just didn't know you could tune your car as you want for the powerslide challenges, so I gave up in frustration before reading about it in a guide years later! Once I knew that it was easy.

I don't really know yet TBH, I'm only trying to achieve MP related trophies so that I guarantee the platinum for later.  I'm racing against the shutdowns but at times I try to finish quick games, especially when I feel that they're garbage and I'll never want to go back.  I then get all excited because I actually finished a game and then subsequently crushed when I'm reminded by another shutdown announcement and I go back into MP grinding mode.

 

I feel that by the time I finish the PS3's obtainable MP trophies, a decade will have passed.  Then I'll get to my backlog to 100% all of them and... Yeah... Now I'm sad =(

All 27 Trophies
9th December 2015  Platinum in 1 year, 6 months

 

 

 

Why:  Boring AF game, that I literally can only play in 5 minute increments without wanting to die

F1 2011 on the vita took me 6 years and 10 months

 

It was a combination of lack of ability for the gold medal times and a lack of desire for the grinding out 8 seasons of wins

 

Will probably surpass that total with some of the old ps3 stuff I am looking at mopping up

Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions took me 6 years, 9 months to platinum which honestly I really enjoyed the game, but I just never personally owned a copy of the game for several years and had to piggyback off my brother's copy, and also I think I may have overestimated the difficulty of getting the highest rank on all the levels.

Mugen Souls at 3 months, 1 week, 1 day... Why? Well if you have any experience with this game, you know why. :P I actually consider that time fairly good, I only took 1 break to play something else while I was going for it. xD

45 of 51 Trophies
16th March 2018  Platinum in 9 years, 4 months

 

The first game I earned a trophy in. This got delayed for a bunch of different reasons. I didn't try for the platinum when I first played it in 2008. I came back in 2010 but got frustrated when one of the trophies didn't pop for some reason. I made my first serious attempt at the platinum in 2017 but didn't finish it before I was away from my PS3 for nine months. Then finally finished it off in 2018.

Furi in 2 years and 1 week.

I got it when it was free with the PS+ but i gave up on the 4th boss.

I saw it on sales this summer so i bought it and It only took me 2 weeks (13 days) to get the platinium.

Call of Duty: World at War is at 5 years and 8 months mainly since it was a game I went back and forth with before I really started caring about trophies and for some reason I didn't realize I only had one trophy left I could easily do by the time I did it so I probably could have gotten it sooner :P

The Technomancer which was 7 months and change.

 

Because I burned out in the middle of my playthrough with it, and told myself I'd quit trophy hunting... and 7 months later, well... here I am now hunting trophies so I guess that didn't work out (and I ended up getting the platinum in The Technomancer when I came back).

Is there even an easy way to check this? I have a few that are about a year, but that's for 100%, not the platinum.

 

Anyway, it's probably Dark Souls 3, at 10 months, 3 weeks. I couldn't beat the Dancer of the Boreal Valley, so I cried and played other stuff for almost a year. Eventually, I went back, beat her, and platinumed the game five days later.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale took me 5 years, 11 months, 3 weeks. I got it for free when I purchased my Vita, along with Assassins Creed Liberation. I can't remember which game I played first but they would have been the first trophies I earned as I didn't own a PS3. I just completed it in November of 2018 because of the server closure. Sound Shapes is 2nd in 3 years, 3 months, 1 day for the same reason.

1 year 11 months 1 week for CoD:BO2. My nephews brought the game home and loaded the trophy list on my account (before I started trophy hunting) :P and we earned 2 zombies trophies. Almost two years later someone lent me the game and I platted it in about 1 week. As for 100%, it took me 3 years and 8 months overall, since I only bought the DLCs when a relative of mine gave me his copy of the game when he sold his PS3. Quite a journey. 😅

Tekken 7 - 5 months, 3 weeks

 

Got all the non multiplayer trophies within about a month. However, I'm not normally subscribed to PS+ so I couldn't get the plat with the multiplayer trophies. However, this past Christmas I got a 3 month subscription, and the day after, I got the plat.

I don't know yet but its probably going to be Bloodborne. I started playing I think last year and gave up in between after Father Gascoigne. Then I picked it up again this year and its now on of my my favourite games. Then some dumb exams had to come in between and I couldn't play for quite some time. I'm still definitely going for the platinum. A few more bosses and one weapon related achievement.

This is my last profile I'll ever make and it's only two years old so my longest platinum is probably just over a year. I'd have to check but it's probably something like Adventure Time Secret of the Nameless Kingdom on Vita. Man, that game really pissed me off. I was so happy when I found a glitch where I could skip all the annoying bits.

Tomb Raider: Underworld in 8 years and 10 months. Mainly because I could never find the motivation to go back through it for the almost 200 collectables.

Looks like it's Pier Solar and the Great Architects for me.  That mini-game was giving me fits, so I stopped and played something else.  Eventually came back to it and got it 2 years, 3 months later.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, 3 years, 10 months.

Easy to explain why. I got this game for free on psplus as far as I can remember. I played it, I liked it, I went out of my way to get even the most tedious singleplayer trophies, and then I saw the requirements for multiplayer. I usually do not like multiplayer but in the same year I had a great time with The Last Of Us multiplayer so I gave it a try. The multiplayer was pretty much dead already even back then, not to mention that it was shit in general. The few remaining people obviously played this game for so long that I dare to question their mental health, and spawn camping was a very common sight because, as I said, the multiplayer sucked in general. Not bothering with boosting and other shit back then I just gave up on it, it was not worth it to me. Fast forward almost 4 years, I went on a backlog cleaning rampage and scrapped together some people to boost most of these shitty mp trophies. There is currently only one game on my list that could take the number 1 spot away from Tomb Raider if I ever complete it, but that seems highly unlikely at this point.

Borderlands at 7 years, 1 month. I originally played through the game in 2011 and wasn't interested in trophies at all back then, so the trophies I earned at that time were all earned naturally through my progression. I then rediscovered the game last year while visiting a friend, took another look at my trophy list and realized the plat would be rather easily achievable. I had already earned the majority of the trophies, so I decided to do it. The most tedious part was leveling up to level 50 - even after completing all of the DLC, I was only at level 44, so it took a good 10-15 hours of additional grinding just to get that last trophy for the platinum.
