What Platinum trophy broke you and why ?

131 posts in this topic

For me its probably going to be Tetris Effect. I say probably because I am still working on it, but I can feel my want to and sanity slipping.  The game is one of those games that have multiple 70-100 hour grinds on top of having a difficulty curve that is ridiculous.  In order to plat the game, you have to spin the tetriminos 1000000 times which if you were doing nothing but constantly spinning the blocks would still take upwards of 50 hours to do.  Collect 100 avatars, though you can probably collect 30 or so by playing the game, most of them have to be gotten in the weekend ritual.  Which is only available on saturdays and only for specific modes.  Completing a mode on the ritual list will give you an avatar at random, which means theoretically this can take forever. Reach Level 100 which is a grind that probably requires 100+ hours by itself but you will probably get naturally because you have will have to get SS rank on every mode in the game.  Some of them are easy, or can be cheesed, but at the end of the day you still have to get dang good at the game to complete the Ultra mode which requires you to either be good at zt stacking or able to get 100 lines in 3 minutes using only tetris and sprint which requires 40 lines in sub 1:10.  I have probably 150 hours in the game and still need to shave my sprint time by 30 seconds.

Yooka-Laylee. I've mentioned this before in a similar thread but it's worth repeating. Good god getting all the collectibles was a pain. The mini games were annoying and I think they were my main issue. It's been a while since I played so I can't remember details of why I hated it so much as my brain is helpfully blocking the worst bits but everytime I see the game it's like I have PTSD and can't let it go without telling everyone in the room how much trouble I had with it.

There was a nasty glitch that stopped u getting a trophy. I started the game again to speed through it twice but never worked. They eventually patched it which was nice. Which never happened to mad maxs terrible scrap gitch

 

Ac origins was a pain to get all locations epecially trying to find them all in that awfull yellow background but it was a brilliant game so ill let them off

In terms of displeasure of digging for a platinum Resident Evil 6 easily takes the cake way above such straightforward PoS like Aliens: CM or Operation Raccoon City. What differentiates it from these is it wasn't enjoyable in co-op whatsoever and while being a fan of the series in general I'll never gonna touch this crap again.

EA Sports MMA, due to the online grind. I bought the game on opening day and played it pretty relentlessly, meaning that nobody really knew how long the Master Red Belt would take at the start. By the time I had 1,000 fights in, the math became more clear that it would take some 5,000 fights, based on my win percentage. I would play the game for a few weeks on and off, and did this for well over a year, thinking there was little to no chance to platinum the game before EA inevitably closed the servers. Fortunately, they held a 10X XP event at some point, and I hit it extremely hard in order to platinum the game. Believe it took my about 3700 fights. Servers were closed within the next four months or so, IIRC. There’s a reason that was the first trophy I added to my cabinet!

I heard about that glitch. Luckily it never affected me. Thank god because I don't think I would've kept going with it if it did.

Titan Souls

 

It's basically an indie game where you fight just bosses. The game was on PS+ Plus a few years ago which explains the number of game owners it has, but at the time I wasn't interested in picking this up and moved to other games.

 

I bought this game last week thinking it was going to be a difficult but satisfying experience. This is more annoying and infuriating, one of the most infuriating games I've played for trophies.

 

You're some kid with just an arrow. That's your entire weapon for the game. Shooting the arrows means you can retrieve it back by holding the Square button, which is absolutely necessary for one particular boss and one trophy.

 

Over 600 - 700 deaths later I am at the last boss before the platinum and it is killing me. Instead of making a wall of text I'll just link you the YouTube video...

 

 

In short, The Soul is basically a boss that mimics your movement. Problem is timing is so essential I literally had to watch two - three different videos to get even a fucking clue what I was supposed to do.

 

This game is a frustrating experience with a difficult trophy list. It requires you to beat the game in No Roll Mode, Hard Mode, Hard Mode with Iron Mode, and beating all Titans in Iron Mode. Iron Mode for those who don't know is a mode that gives you one life. If you die, it's back to the very beginning. Doesn't matter whether you're at the initial four bosses or the very last boss in the game, you're sent to the beginning.

 

I have downloaded my save from the cloud probably 200 - 300+ times because of fucking Iron Mode. Eventually I gave up and just use a USB stick because it transfers my save a little quicker.

 

Watching some gameplay videos gives you a good idea of how difficult this game is. In addition Hard Mode makes every boss a lot quicker and more difficult, with a few having addition moves to what they had in Normal difficulty.

 

Fuck this game. Never going to touch it again after I get the platinum.

Just finished Titan Souls myself and couldn't put it better... Thankfully the game itself is pretty short.

Quantum of Solace on PS3. 

 

I had finished everything in the game except the last three multiplayer trophies which I was 2 matches away from completing (collect 100,000 credits... I was at about 98,000) when I was struck with the yellow light of death on the console... 

 

I was devastated and as this was before cloud saves I couldn't carry on with a new system. Instead that PS3 has been sat in it's box ever since and used as a door stop ever since, the copy of Quantum of Solace still forever stuck in it's disc tray.  

 

I'm assuming the servers shut down a long time ago now as well.

I'm pretty lucky that I've never really come across a trophy that "broke me".

I second this, so far so good all the games i wanted to play are already 100% on my list, including but not limited to catherine, whole metal gear franchise (including rising - still gonna play phantom pain), vanquish, shadow of colossus, PAIN and others. some drove me mad but in the end persistence wins !!

Final Fantasy X-2. I don't know why I was so committed to getting that plat, but I did. It was just way too tedious. You miss 1 line of dialogue and you can't get 100%. And then when you beat the game, you have to play a strategy game which I didn't like.

Didn't broke me but sure annoyed me. LEGO The Hobbit. One of the trophies requires you to finish all quests in the game, which isn't a problem in itself, if you played LEGO game before you'll know more or less how that looks. One quest was bugged though - there is day/night system, but very marginal, it limits to some quests being avaiable at day, others only at night. Bugged quest could be done during both the day and night, while it was supposed to be avaiable only during night. And i did it at day, so it didn't counted for the completion. As some of the quests involve gathering treasures from story levels and crafting other items, i had to replay the whole game again and hit 100% again. Took another two weeks of my life. I'll definetely do more research on glitches and bugs from now on, because i thought that the only issue would be getting brick before completing the quest, but then this happened.

DMC Devil May Cry for PS4. The game is fun and the trophies doable, until the point where you need to get SSS rankings, that's just not for me. I tried it a few times, I even did it twice I believe, but doing it for 10 different levels? Sadly I'm not that skilled to remember all those combos and play the game without getting hit, finishing the levels fast, and it isn't that much fun either :/
And Outlast 1 (even though it's just for 100%) and Outlast 2. I might try the Insane runs someday, but right now I don't think I could do it. I love this game, the first one more than the second, but still - running through the game without getting hit once and starting from the beginning if that happens - not nice.

For me the COD Black Ops Declassified on vita, I’m really broken! I have one trophy for the platinum and it’s the double down one. Currently I’m on over 600 attempts on getting 8 kills with 4 bullets and still cannot get it. 

 

I have watched  he’s all the videos online and only 3 or 4 times did I get 3 double kills - not once have I had the game spawn the enemies in the way needed for 8 kills.... I’ve had to put it down and will get back to it one day!

It's going to be Monster Hunter: World for me. It's the first game on my profile that I'm looking at thinking "yeah no, I'll pass on the platinum thanks." The game is fun, much more fun than I originally gave it credit for. As much as I love the grind to keep getting stronger, the miniature crown and gold crown trophies will kill me.

 

Each hunt takes around 10 - 30 minutes (depending on what you're hunting), and that time will likely increase if you're hunting HUGE versions of the abnormally large monsters for the gold crowns. Not to mention, it's down to RNG to even find these monsters worthy of slaying for a gold crown. And you kinda have to guess as to whether the monster is just big enough to give you a gold crown and not a silver crown. And after all the stars have aligned to get you this far, then you have to manage to kill the thing without dying or having it "leave the area" (disappear forever). You could dump hundreds and hundreds of hours into this game and still never get half the gold crowns.

 

Nope. Nope. Nope. I'll play the game and have fun with it and gather as many trophies as possible, but as it stands right now, that platinum trophy is just NOT happening.

Red Dead 2 broke me, probably took 400 hours to get that platinum. Towards the end of my journey I began questioning my life and hobby of trophy collecting. I turned down social outings to stay inside and wander around in a virtual world for hours on end to find a god damn songbird I had to study and for what? A virtual trophy that means nothing? That game made me think, as I had plenty of time to playing that game. I loved the game and story but  I quickly realized it would be my longest platinum yet. In the end it’s nice to look back and see it’s my rarest trophy and my 50th platinum but I lost a part of myself during the process. 

 Red Dead 2 is at the top of my list. The game was great, but the amount of grind in that game was just ughhh.

Mafia II. I love that game, but attempting Platinum in that instead of just enjoying the game was a mistake, and it's something I now think about a lot more. I don't trophy hunt as much as I used to, and I know it's because of those stupid wanted posters, and playing that game on hard first go because I had a job and not enough time to play it two times all the way through. Eventually I'm going to burn out likely, and I guess I thank the game for that, as my stress levels aren't as bad now thanks to getting a grip on how much getting every trophy matters. Heck, I don't even have every trophy in that game! Just Platinum, missing two trophies from each DLC and I kinda don't want to get them.

 

Also, it's not Platinum, but can I please count Solbrain Knight of Darkness? I was the guy who proved it wasn't broken and that was eight or nine hours of my life..... For something I can only jokingly brag about because of how awful that game is.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere on the forum here that they patched the mad max scrap glitch

 

Never mind. I found the forum posts and I misremembered. Some people still have the scavenging glitch. It seems they only fixed the races.
