I know. But i think judging them like that is also not that correct otherwise what are the hard plat? Probably just stuff like Vanquish, Sekiro & Co because the game itself are Hard.

That kind a game has the essence of "by a hard game" so game designers created a game with the intention so yeah, that kind of game are the harder JRPG.

For me evene a Plat Like rorona is A Slightly hard one because of all the stuff it requires you to do and the different endings. It's Hard per se for difficiulty? No but it's hard to work on everything and follow everything in guides to do it so not that easy.

 Well... I think Arlanad serie in this case teach the player very well the important of the time and how do a good management of the in-game time, look around for information like trophy guide, forum, walkthrough can be tiresome for some people, especially those that don't like play with guides but I think the word "hard" is not the suitable word for this kind of game.

But that's my catch, probably the Thread Opener meant Hard in pure game difficulty in which case yeah i don't think there are many JRpgs that are actually hard to do, just tedious.

I thought the same the first time I saw this thread, if we talk about in pure game difficulty maybe Dark soul or that kind of game but the rest... just tedious like you said, like kill a boss that demand a certain preparation or some mandatory items or upgrade weapon, etc., or games that has a focus in world building or narrative like kiseki games where the mechanics or the battle in general are just a kind of "complement" and very easy to understand, I mean is fun go and kill enemies and have all monsters information but the intention behind the game is other, talk with npc, know more about the world, the problems it has, the relations among characters, etc.

 

At the end people who play jrpg know very well what they want to do and what expect. :)

Well, yesterday I was going to talk about time but I guess that most gamers know that RPG gamers requires dozens of hours for completion, and that's why they don't consider very grindy games to be hard to plat.

For me, considering my limited time to gaming a grindy plat it's not just long but also not easy.

Well isn't that Worth saying for every Trophy Releated to something hard? Let's not Take and RPG buta shooter CoD for example, the Challenges are pretty hard and so is the Plat because of that otherwise it would be pretty easy to get. So that's worth saying for any game :P 

 

Well i would say guides and Walkthrough are almost a Must for most JRPGs unless you need to do more Runs or there aren't missable/Endings which is usually not the case.

Yeah this things are more "Long" than Hard for both the game and the Plat. I saw some people writing here FFX and it's not really hard, you Can and almost have to max out your Team anyway and once maxed out the hardest Boss is just a matter of time as a battle. Now X-2 instead i would say it's a bit hard because there you actually have to manage well in the Battles (Against Trema mostly) otherwise you lose even at Lv99.

 

Well i think nowadays most people check guides before if they are interested in trophies to see how a game is and as said usually for JRPGs i expect, multiple endings/LongPlat or A bunch of missable :)

Disappointed that I've only seen one reply mention them but the Trails of Cold Steel games are a great option imo. The series as a whole is one of my favorites and I had a lot of fun platinuming the first one on Vita. The second is on my to do list after I finally get Hardcore Rosette Fan in P4G. Regardless, I'll always advocate supporting Falcom RPGs, especially when they're Trails.

The 3rd game is scheduled to arrive this September too which will add another to this list. 😁

 

I hope you seriously consider them! (And enjoy them if you decide to play them!)

 

I mean, they're great games but the words "easy to plat" absolutely doesn't come to mind when I think of them.

I recommend the Neptunia titles most are fast and quite simple to complete. Also Death End;Request is quite quick. Tbh most CH games are. Shining Resonance Refrain is quite quick too and Akiba's Beat, they aren't that good though lol.

I did both FFX and X-2 a few months back and I agree that they aren't hard, just long and grindy, especially X. X was one of the more long, boring grinds I've done and that only applies to maxing out your team. By comparison, the Celestial Weapons sidequests like lightning dodging and chocobo racing are among the fastest things to do in the game, except for Wakka's blitzball item because fuck 40+ games of blitzball. The X-2 completion actually requires a step-by-step walkthrough guide. It's doable the first time but not very fun playing that way. If Trema is the last trophy, he isn't even that hard since you would have the necessary costumes and accessories to get through him.

south park stick of truth, it's hilarious and fun to play, while the collectables aren't to bad and the battle system is really good for turn base.

took me 2 days and 12 hours, I was pretty much hooked and cracking up on the plat adventure..

I got the platinum on Dragons Dogma yesterday. 

 

Now don'tr get me wrong I had moments where  the game handed my arse to me, but mostly it was down to my own stupidity. Looking back I don't think the game is worth rating obver 3/10 in terms of platinum difficulty. But its terms of gameplay and features the game deserves 9/10 for being so amazing.

 

Give this game a crack if you love RPG's and never played it before. Well worth it trust me.

Death end request was a pretty straight forward platinum, (though I got lost a few times)

I want to start platting some RPGs (I prefer JRPG over stuff like Fallout/Skyrim...)

 

Can anyone give some suggestions as to what PS4 RPGs are fairly easy to plat? I am already on my way to finishing DQXI but need suggestions for my next game.

 

Final Fantasy XV has fairly easy trophies imo. Also Romancing SaGa 2, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, South Park: Stick of Truth, South Park: Fractured But Whole, Tales of Beseria, Tales of Vesperia, Tales of Zesteria, Persona 5, I am Setsuna, Lost Sphere, and Secret of Mana all have easy trophies.

 

 

That said: You really shouldn't be playing games for trophies (atleast as you're primary factor in regards of which you're choosing to play) - but rather the gameplay itself. Some of the best JRPGs have unwelcoming trophy lists like Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Rogue Galaxy, Resonance of Fate, Ni No Kuni 2, Nier Automata, and the Kingdom Hearts games.

from what I played.

 

- Ni no Kuni 2.

- Dark Cloud.

- Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2.

- World of Final Fantasy.

 

though put in mind that these are Japanese games which mean the grind is very required!

 

- dark cloud: the most annoying part is the fishing, you need to at least get on of the two ultra rare fish in the whole game then after that the rest of the trophies is straight forward.

 

-ni no kuni 2: the Skirmish wars is the most annoying part in the whole game, also if you got an item called ( Smelly Shoes/Boots or Stinky Shoe/Boots ) early in the game DO NOT THROW IT AWAY OR SELL IT!

because searching for one  again is a pain!

 

- hyperdimension neptunia mk2: the only thingyou need to be aware of is the endings, the worst ending is very tedious to do.

 

- world of final fantasy: the mini games especially the hilariously bad one the Sandstalker is the only thing that will make the platinum very boring and so frustrating to attempt due to the heavily tacked on luck-based to win, other than that it's just your typical daily grind. this game act like a Pokémon game and the game will required you to catch or befriend all the monsters in the game and evolve every type to their final form.

I'm coming up on my plat for Dragon Quest XI pretty soon, definitely not the most difficult game but pretty time consuming. Since I'm currently sitting at the 75 hour mark and I'm finally completely the last act of the game.

 

If you're looking for a couple of old school jrpgs from the PS2 era I'd recommend trying out Okami, Arc the Lad, and a few other PS2 games that they brought onto the PS4 market. They're pretty inexpensive in comparison to more recently released titles like any of the new Atelier games and can be just as time consuming! :)

Dragon Sinker, Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria and Dragon Fantasy: Black Tome of Ice are fun and easy.

Final fantasy 10 was pretty hard due to the high level monsters and farming for weapons damage upgrades. Ff15 was easy
