Mine is Far Cry 2 at 11 years 2 months. It was the second ever game I played that had trophies on it and when I finished it I had missed saving one of the buddies, then a couldnt find half a dozen of the diamonds. and with that in mind I couldnt be bothered doing the online if I wasnt going to get the platinum (and I wasnt a massive collector way back then). I finally went back over Christmas and spent about 70 hours grinding out the multiplayer with three consoles (thank god the Warlord glitch worked as I was really nervous after so much time grinding to level 20) and replaying the single player to collect all the diamonds, jackel logs and buddies.

Borderlands - 8 years and 1 week. 

I remember playing through it with a friend of mine, really loved it, but then we moved onto something else and I ended up trading in my copy. Fast forward to the start of this year and I ended up purchasing Borderlands 3 while visiting my family. I live overseas and my PS3 is still at my parents house, so I figured I'd fire it up while I was there. I noticed Borderlands was on sale dirt cheap digitally so I grabbed it and smashed out the last few trophies while I was there which were for hitting level 50 and two character specific action skills. I ran out of time doing the same with Borderlands 2, but I did upload my character and then smashed out the platinum on my PS4 when I got back

Minecraft: Story Mode - 4 years and 3 months

 

I finished playing through the game and didn't get the missable trophies. I didn't have the desire to go through and try to get them until recently. It only took me like an hour or two to get them, so I'm not sure why I waited so long.

I have missing timestamps so I don't know exactly, but I am approximating Call of Duty: Black Ops took me 7-8 years from 2012 to 2020 to get the 100%. It was mainly because I couldn't be bothered with buying the DLC all at once. I eventually said screw it and did it anyway, but it took all this time to do so. As for a game I do have timestamps for, it would be Uncharted 2 at 5 years, 10 months. I had too many games to play at the time (still got a massive backlog that will never be done) and the fact that I didn't want to waste money on DLC for a multiplayer that was dead and gonna be impossible to get those medal trophies legit. Then they made the DLC free when they announced the server shutdown alongside Uncharted 3. In the end, Uncharted 3 will have the longer completion time, and that is if I get around to it.

Gran Turismo 6. That one trophy for getting all gold on the S-licence. The first challenge took like 2 years to complete. I think it took around 4 years total, but I started playing it before I cared about trophies (or even had an account online)

Rocket league in 4 years because I kept saying I would ask someone to boost the friend trophy but I was too shy to actually do it until I randomly found a boosting season only last month . Its pathetic but I'm proud of how pathetic it is to be able to delay a plat for 4 years over a extremely easy trophy.

Gravity Rush: Remastered (2 years, 9 months) - My interest was fluctuating, as I had interest, then lost interest in the game. The worst came when memory wipe-out happened in my PS4, which caused all my saves files to be erased. Thanks to PS Plus, which was overlooked for years, I still had the auto-save and continued it to Platinum.

Downwell for me, I got it for free with PS+ played it for like 5 minutes thought it was too hard and shit it off.  After playing many more roguelikes and getting addicted to the genre I decided to go back to it and it took me about 2-3 weeks of really trying to platinum it.  Took over a year to get the plat.

The Last of Us Remastered - 5 years 7 months

 

I played the multiplayer obsessively when it first came out and got those trophies no problem. But I couldn't face replaying the campaign on survivor then again on survivor+ (didn't know about the workaround) to get the difficulty trophies, having heard how hard it was on survivor. I also kept missing one or two conversations/jokes without realising and locking myself out of those trophies. Eventually, I got frustrated and gave up on ever getting the plat.

 

I recently wanted to replay the campaign before TLOU2 comes out. I discovered the NG+ workaround and decided to go for it. Played once on easy to hoover up as much scrap/supplements as possible and carefully following a guide to get all the conversations/jokes. Then did a single survivor+ playthrough to finish upgrading Joel/weapons, get the difficulty trophies and finally snag the plat (wasn't as hard as I was expecting).

Resi 5 at 2 years 1 month. Originally played through it with my roommate and had a blast. Went back a year or so later when the dlc came out and got hooked again. Flash forward another year and I finally went back in to get the couple of remainingg trophies

Missing timestamps on some trophies but LittleBigPlanet took me a minimum of 10 years 4 months (earliest dated trophy, definitely not my first trophy). Borrowed the game years ago and never got a copy of my own until recently while trying to complete my old games.

Potentially, any game that I still didn't finish (like Persona 5). :D

Currently, Battleborn. Game itself is poorly balanced and abandoned by developers, servers shutdown is coming close as well. I don't think that game itself is bad (I quite enjoyed campaign: certain missions were cool, some not; a lot of heroes are fun to play), but it struggles from identity crisis: devs wanted it to be a hero shooter, but game turns out to be a moba shooter with lack of fun-to-play game modes; glitches.

Grand Theft Auto V - 4 years and 6 months.

 

The stunt jumps, 70 gold missions, under the bridge etc. Horrible.

Rdr2 because when I have studied all animals I was bored of the sp and the online was boring to level up until the roles came into play so I came back to it to finish it after playing 1 year of other games. That's why it is 1year and 4 months

There are actually 2 different games.

 

Platinumwise it would be Wheelman because i got the 1st Trophy in April 2009 and the Platinum in August 2018, but only because i had like a special platinum day where i triggered a lot of platinum trophies on one day. I got all the trophies (except for 1 easy one) in March 2017 which makes it a gap of 7 years and 11 months. I was very unlucky that i had to play the story 4 different times which annoyed me for a long time. In the beginning i forgot to make a save before the different missable choice trophies and afterwards i lost my savegame twice, because you couldnt copy it to an usb device and ps+ wasn't released back then. Also the sidemissions were quite a challenge.

 

The other game is Eat Lead. I started the game in June 2009 and prepared the Platinum in September 2017, which makes it a gap of 8 years and 3 months. The only explanation i have is, that i sucked back in 2009. I wasn't able to beat a boss halfway through the game so i stopped playing until 2017. I didn't have problems at all beating him then.

GTA V took me almost 3 years to plat. I got all the trophies except 100% completion back in 2013 which was caused by one of the street race not spawning. Sicen then i tried to start a new game once in a while and see if it spawns.

God of War 3 on PS3: 9 years 8 months. First game on ps3. Never got super into trophy hunting until the last year or so and definitely didn't care about them back then. If it weren't for the invincibility glitch I'd never have gotten it.

If we're including ones that spanned years then mine would be Fallout: New Vegas that took me 6 years and 9 months total. That was me playing multiple playthroughs until I eventually decided to go for the plat, Didn't before because I didn't think I could handle a hardcore mode playthrough. 

 

In terms of a game where I played it straight through to get the plat, then that would be Fallout Shelter which took me 7 months and 2 weeks.
