First Platinum in Every Year

47 posts in this topic

I have no rhyme or reason (for the most part) of why I platinum a certain game at a certain time. Usually... 


I didn't get into platinums until 2013 and popped my first, which is sad because it would have been nice to have a full decade 😭


But I technically should have had Metal Gear Solid 4 as my first plat as I did literally everything. But Metal Gear Solid 4/ps3 didn't have trophies at the time, so there goes a year it could have been. I still consider it platinumed, just not official. 


1M44580c.png- #1 - The Walking Dead - June 11, 2013

It kinda just happened lol hard not to get it

Also gotta love how much effort they put into the platinum trophy icon lol


1M4923d8.png- #2 - Tales of Xillia - March 17, 2014

What began my "Tales Of" kick


1M9c9da7.png- #8 - Tales of Grace's F - February 8, 2015

I was on a "Tales Of" kick and was (still am kinda) determined to platinum all the ones possible 


1M9c3908.png -  #14 - SWORD ART ONLINE RE: HOLLOW FRAGMENT - March 25, 2016

This one actually has a sad story to it... 

I was playing it, liking it, and was considering platinuming it months before I got the platinum. 

But during the time that I was playing, my disabled duck Buddy passed away. She was 5 years old and lived inside with us. I built her a wheel chair as well as other things. She was my little girl. She was always so full of life, happiness, and was so amazing. I loved her so much, still do. All she ever wanted was to be with me. I was so upset, heartbroken, I was in a nightmare. And when I asked my family "what do I do, what do I do, if I wasn't playing this stupid game with headphones I might have noticed earlier she was having an issue" 

My mother told me "you're going to continue to play that game and finish it for Buddy, because she wouldn't want you to be upset."

And so I platinumed it for her. I still get emotions when I think about this platinum. 

Rest peacefully my little girl, I'll be with you when my time comes. 


1Ma73628.png - #21 - Far Cry Primal - January 1, 2017

I really enjoy that kind of time period, and it was just so addictive. I have no other reason


1M03d9d6.png- #28 - Dark Souls 3 - March 4, 2018

I was playing with friends on the third one, plus after having platinumed the second one on PSNow, it was only fitting to platinum the 3rd! 


1Mfb2df7.png- #34 - Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom - August 22, 2019

I really loved the first game, it was a no brainer to platinum the second one. I really enjoyed it a lot, especially the city building as limited as it was


1Me06967.png- #39 - √Letter - February 29, 2020

I really like some VNs and this one peaked my interest a lot. After getting one ending I had to get the others, and it was totally worth it. Each ending is really unique.

1Sf5412a.png 11/01/2014 Resogun (PS4)

So my primary console before the PS4 was released was actually the Xbox 360, I only played a handful of exclusives on PS3 before this and wasn't particularly dedicated to the account... That pretty much all changed when I got my PS4, Resogun was one of the first PS+ games I got and it was a blast to play and plat - and it kickstarted my transition over to trophy hunting on playstation!


1S767353.png 25/01/2015 South Park: The Stick of True (PS3)

If I remember right, my brother got this game for Christmas at the time, so I got to play it a little into the new year - not much to say other than it was a fun and amusing game.


1Sb4aa06.png 09/01/2016 Resogun (PS3/Vita)

I distinctly remember this - I played it on the Vita while staying with my aunts over the new year! I had recently finished Neptunia 1 at the time and was trying to decide what Vita game to play next, I settled on Resogun because I had fond memories of the PS4 version and didn't want anything too in depth or long winded.


1S848de1.png 22/03/2017 Horizon Zero Dawn

After a small break from trophy hunting, this gem of a game was released, and I had been looking forward to it big time! This is actually only a few weeks after release (which is rare for me!), and I started it the day it came out.


1S2020af.png 19/11/2018 Spyro the Dragon

A bit of a black hole in my trophy-hunting career, the Spyro trilogy was about the only thing I played on PS in 2018 or 2019. Not much to say other than this childhood classic was enough to make me dust off the old console...




1S2d4dce.png 06/02/2020 Spyro 3

...Although at the time I only played 2/3 of them before dropping it again. Then, early 2020 I got a kick of motivation to earn trophies once more led me to finishing off the trilogy early in the year!


1Sf8e61c.png 02/01/2021 Persona 5

And finally, after a solid year of trophy hunting I got around to playing P5 in late 2020, finishing my 2nd play through for the plat just after the new year!

Call of Duty World at War

17th Jan 2009


Platinum - Very proud of this one as it is my first Platinum and have been trophy hunting over a decade now.


Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

3rd Jan 2010


Is That All You Got? - Still my favourite Call of Duty, spent over a 1000 hours on Multiplayer alone. The multiplayer kept me from platting this game until the following year.


Prince of Persia

18th Sep 2011


Prince of Persia - A massive gap from my last plat to this one. I was still trophy hunting but not really getting platinum's while doing it. Also, I'm pretty sure I was obsessed with MW2 and just played that for most of the year. This is a decent reboot for the franchise. I think it is deserving of a remaster.


Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

1st Jul 2012


All In - Another large gap for this year. I was a big CoD junkie and just played a lot of multiplayer in every new installment. However, it did not live up to the hype after the phenomenal MW2.


Far Cry 3

1st Jan 2013


Mastered the Jungle - A completely unintentional 1st of January plat in my collection. I hadn't played a FC game before and got it off a friend in December and really enjoyed it. I had to plat it and it is one of my favourite Ubisoft games period.


Call of Duty Ghosts

4th Mar 2014


Federated - I'm still playing CoD so nothing new here. I guess it's a quicker plat compared to a couple of previous years so you can imagine I was not very into this one. Very forgettable, best part of this game was Extinction.


The Order 1886

5th Mar 2015


The Grail -  Got this for my birthday from friends and without any knowledge of how easy the platinum would be I platted it without even really going for it otherwise. Heavily criticised although I really enjoyed this game. Could have been much longer though.


Far Cry 4

2nd Oct 2016


Master of Kyrat - WOW. What a time gap to the first platinum in the year. I think it was a quiet year and I wasn't really interested in playing games for platinums this year compared to previous years. More Far Cry. The last major entry I played.


Mortal Kombat X

16th Jan 2017


Platinum Trophy - Nice and early plat of the year. Brilliant fighting game. Fast paced and gruesome.


Fighting EX Layer

21st Jul 2018


FIGHTING EX LAYER Platinum Trophy - Looking back at my first platinums of the year and I am beginning to classify myself as a casual trophy hunter now lol. At least i was in the past. Not because of the quality of games I play but the time it took to get my first platinums of the year. Underrated 90s fighter that didn't even come out in the 90s.


Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

22nd Jan 2019


Biosplattered - As a hardcore RE fan I remember going back to this to just platinum it because I was in a phase where I wanted to make progress in getting a plat in every RE game. I did not enjoy this game very much at all the first time I completed it. I enjoyed this game the more playthroughs I done and that was thanks to the platinum forcing me to replay it a few times so I owe it to trophy hunting for me eventually liking RE7. The scariest RE in my opinion.


Tomb Raider

25th Feb 2020


True Survivor - This one means a lot to me in my trophy hunting journey. This game kicked off my desire to seriously work on my game completion percentage on my profile. I remember looking back at this trophy list and not having done the multiplayer grind for the platinum made me think I am so close to the platinum after getting all but one single player trophy. It filled me with motivation to go back to my old games on my profile and platinum and 100% them.


I spent all of 2020 really going for a better game completion percentage and in that year I got the most platinum trophies in any single year so far and also unlocked my 100th platinum trophy right at the end of the year too. Games like Batman Arkham Asylum, Infamous 2, Persona 4 Arena and so many more would not have been 100%'d if it wasn't for this game and feeling sad that I was at an 80% completion since 2013 with no platinum for years on end every time I checked this game on my trophy list.


I don't know what it was about this game that made me want to work on my completion rating but looking back on this game it makes me remember how bad my completion was for a lot of games on my profile so thank you Tomb Raider. This is also a contender for best video game reboot in my opinion.


Resident Evil Zero

1st Jan 2021


Wanna Go for a Ride? - This is my 101st platinum and the first plat of the year. So this is the first time I purposely held back on unlocking a platinum until the 1st of Jan. I might start doing that every year from now on. I also wanted to wait until after I first got the platinum on Resident Evil 1 (which is my 100th platinum). I'm still working on my RE franchise trophy collection and on my overall game completion rating percentage. It's good to see this and RE1, both games I played a lot in my childhood now finally have a platinum next to their name in my trophy collection.  A game I enjoyed in my childhood that is showing it's age but I still really enjoy it.

1L889b63.png  InFamous: Second Son - 4 April 2014 - Platinum #1

InFamous Second Son was the reason why I got my PS4, the previous InFamous games were some of my favourites. And I knew that I just wanted to get a platinum once, in the week that I did the hard dificulty trophy I got sick and near the end of me feeling unwell, I got the platinum.


1L09924a.png Murdered Soul Suspect - 20 September 2015 - Platinum #3

I bought this game from one of my friends, he said that it was a fun but easy to plat/short game, so I was like "You know what, let's just go for it" and I have to agree with him. But the most important thing is that I had a good time with it.


1L9e1b04.png Goosebumps: The Game - 27 January 2016 - Platinum #9

I sadly can't remember if I had a reason for getting this platinum, I was just very interested in the game because I remember reading the books and got the platinum.


1Ld3d22d.png Final Fantasy XV - 15 January 2017 - Platinum #15

Final Fantasy XV was my introduction to one of my favourite series. A YouTuber introduced me to it and the more I saw of it, the more I got interested so I bought the game for a fairly small price and loved the game to bits. Even the less fun parts in my opinion were still great. In the end I was very satisfied because the platinum took me 15 days to get, it was my 15th platinum, I got the platinum on the 15th and it was Final Fantasy XV


1L0f2b9f.png My Name is Mayo - 13 January 2018 - Platinum #19

This one I just got to have a laugh. I just forgot that it was my first of the year... not that I got a lot of trophies that year.


Sadly no platinum in 2019, I was a bit done with getting trophies for quite a while.


1Lc8e66a.png Astro's Playroom - 20 November 2020 - Platinum #21

This is probably the game that most PS5 users play first, so did I. And I noticed how charming the game was, how much fun I had with the game. So I went for it and it must be one of my favourite platinums I got, I love the game, I love the music, I love the trophy design and I even love the speedrun mode, which was an optional trophy.


1Lc50cb2.png Persona 5 Royal - 30 January 2021 - Platinum #24

Persona 5 Royal was my first game of 2021, I had been interested in the series for a while so I finally bit the bullet and bought it on Black Friday and I was very impressed! I loved it so much that I wanted the platinum and it was a fun platinum to get. Honestly, if I had played it in 2020, it would've been in my top 5 games of that year.

Wanted to add my story to the trophies.

26th April 2010 1Sbc9759.png

Terminator Salvation


Just happened to be the first ever game I platted. Didn't really care about trophies back then, but thought I would get them all anyway before selling the game.


9th January 2011 1S897f22.png

Ghostbusters: The Video Game


Had a great time playing this, and the MP was great fun with a few dedicated partners.  Hadn't especially planned it to be the year's first plat; it just happened.


27th January 2012 1Sa57e4c.png

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3


I was a C&C fan since the first game was released on PS1, so I was happy to get this one completed.


16th January 2013 1S77f5c9.png

Oddworld: Munch's Odyssee HD


My first time playing an Oddworld game since the PS1 days.  Experienced a few graphical glitches etc but nothing that really detracted from the game.  Had a lot of fun with it. :)


27th February 2014 1S776759.png

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD


This game was okay, but hardly the best entry in the AC series.  Just became my first plat of 2014 by chance.


11th January 2015 1S92f860.png

Lego Marvel Super Heroes


Quite enjoyed my time with this game. Tons to do and a handy game for my nephew to play when he was visiting.


1st January 2016 1S0859b8.png

Dead Nation


My first plat in my first platinum rain event. :D


5th January 2017 1S727859.png

Murdered: Soul Suspect


Just happened to be the first game I played this year.  No special story behind it.


1st January 2018 1S7ff807.png

Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom


My first platinum of my second platinum rain event. 😂  I ended up popping 12 plats that day!


10th March 2019 1Sf99ff8.png

Midnight Deluxe


Quite a cute little game.  Lots of people might dismiss it simply for being a Ratalaika game, but I liked it.  Eventually bought the other two Midnight games as well.


4th February 2020 1S18f57c.png

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Remastered


Decided I had to replay and replat the first 3 Uncharted games before starting Uncharted 4.  Decided not to bother with Brutal difficulty though, so as not to spoil my enjoyment of these 3 great games.


27th January 2021 1S19e663.png

Assassin's Creed Rogue: Remastered


It had been 5 years since I'd played this on PS3, so it just felt like the right time to revisit Shay's story. 😁

Dark Souls (PS3) - March 4th, 2012

My first platinum and really couldn’t have had a better one (my trophy cabinet will show you why).


God Of War - January 3rd, 2013


Killzone: Shadow Fall - January 6th, 2014


My first plat of 2014 was also my first PS4 game/plat. You couldn’t earn trophies using bots so it took me 111 hours to do the MP trophies but this was one of the few games with MP I enjoyed.


Far Cry 4 - January 6th, 2015



Goat Simulator - January 1st, 2016

I popped 15 plats in 2 hours for Plat Rain Day in 2016. I tested when and how long it took the final trophy I needed for the plat to pop and earned this plat 2 seconds into 2016.


Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time - January 1st, 2017

My first plat of 2017 and also my 125th plat milestone and boy did that piss me off. I don’t care for platformers so didn’t really enjoy the HD trilogy but this was at least easier than the previous three. The reason it annoyed me so much is plat 124 was Destiny which I absolutely loved. I got someone to carry me for Flawless Raider and they asked if I wanted to do it again on Hard difficulty which got the the plat. If I had thought about this at the time I would’ve held off to make it plat 125 instead.


Killzone 2 - January 6th, 2018


I was very very thankful the server shutdown for this was announced while I was on Christmas break so I was able to get the Grand Valor trophies out of the way with very little effort unlike the people going for it right before shutdown.

Monster Hunter: World - January 8th, 2019


These days I always play a long game over my 3 week Christmas break and I was able to plat this game in just over 3 weeks. It was a fantastic game and the grind for crowns is probably the only grind I’ve done in a game where I enjoyed it.


Skyrim (PS4) - January 9th, 2020


I bought this game 3 times. The vanilla PS3 edition, the Legendary PS3 edition and although I told myself I was going to buy it a third time when the PS4 version came out…..I did. Only kept and played this version and while I mostly liked it I still think it’s incredibly overrated. The combat (I went with sword and shield) was extremely boring and even when I had a full Daedric armour and weapon set that meant I could one shot everything so had to change to Legendary difficulty, it still wasn’t fun. Everything else about the game just felt very generic, there really wasn’t anything about it that really stood out.


Tom Clancy’s The Division - January 11th, 2021


Thoroughly enjoyed my time with this game. The classified Striker build I went with was exactly the type of build I wanted and was a heap of fun. The only annoying thing was getting the classified gear and I ended up going with a classified Nomad build at first since there was an event that meant I could get classified Nomad gear. A couple of days before I finished the game there was another event that got me classified Striker gear so I only used it for a couple of days. I was also lucky enough to find a group that was boosting Last Stand wins as the NZ/Aus servers are dead so couldn’t have done it legit.
