Have you ever been so determined to get a trophy you refused to give up?

As the title says is there any trophy you have gotten so determined to get that you refused to give up?

I once played lunar lander for hours non stop to get a trophy, its one of my rarest but to this day I still don't know why i was so determined.  Playing a single level of lunar lander over and over for hours got dull I can say that much.

There are couple that I instantly thought of. Black Ops Veteran run - Executive Order (Cold Warrior) took more attempts than I care to admit or even remember. And Protective Father in Teslagrad was quite painful. To the point where I went kinda numb and just repeated the thing until I got it.

I like to think longer scale. I haven’t given up on any trophies until I’m dead.
 

When I’ll get back to some of them... Eh. When I do.

When the game involves some "beat x time on this trial", I usually give some weeks before I try again. I call those "Mile High trophies". My only exception was ...Becomes the Master, on Titanfall 2. Spent well over 6hrs trying to complete this trophy alone.

 

I think I never let the challenge get the best of my sanity. Bought the game, least I can do is platinum it and honor my money's worth.

So it definitely wasn't my hardest or rarest trophy, but after i platinumed Kingdom hearts 1 i wanted to do the same with KH2 in the 1.5 + 2.5 collection. However the organisation XIII secret end game bosses... i beat 3 with easy and the rest f**kd me up good. i guess playing them back to back was too much so I neglected it for about a year. When i came back? beat all but 2 in the first try a year later.

 

Edited: if that doesn't cut it then the playing 1000 Jason matches of Friday the 13th online took me about 3 months.

I've heard about the Friday the 13th trophies,  I definitely would not have the patience for that.

If i wasn't playing with my friend , i wouldn't have had the patience aswell and quit after a few weeks. With regular play i got all but the 1000 Jason matches trophy, therefore my completionist in me took over and i grinded it out. i took a break of a few months after getting the platinum, now i just play casual whenever we can.

Yes, Super Meat Boy, Paranautical Activity, and Super Mutant Alien Assault to name a few.

 

I'm taking a break from very challenging games now, I'll go for Crypt of the Necrodancer platinum and other hard games, hopefully soon.

Reach level 150 in Ultimate Team in UFC, I got it in 2 sessions, one session of around 24h and one of 12h

Getting rank 50 in RDR2.

God damn that was painful. Couldn't tell you how many hours that took.

Luckily by the time I decided to go for the platinum I was like mid-20s, so the grind to that wasn't too bad really. 

 

My answer was actually going the plat for Red Dead 2, but specifically the 100% and 70 gold trophies. 100% was more of a major ground than a hard challenge, but the 70 gold missions was ridiculous. I didn't totally mind replaying the whole story since it's one of my favorite narratives in games, but trying to get a gold in 70 missions is ridiculous. Moreover, they made it harder than GTA V's 70 gold missions trophy because in RDR2 you have to get all the requirements to get a gold in one try without dying or restarting a checkpoint as compared to GTA V where you can basically do the requirements one at a time. The plat overall took me 300 hours.

Yes, a few occasions (Mega Man Legacy Collection challenges, Crash Bandicoot Stormy Ascent DLC, and a couple levels on League of Evil come to mind). There are others too.  Hours and sometimes it make take days to complete. Sometimes I think something is wrong with me because of my unwillingness to give up.

Yeah I gave up on that too. Rank goes up in little dribbles barely seems like you’re making progress. I kinda regret it now cos I would have had it finished but god it’s a pain in the ass 🙄

damn dude, that is insane, 24 hrs in a row of the same thing over and over?  I don’t think I have done that with anything gaming or otherwise!

The route D ending from Drakengard 3.  It was annoying.  It was the only thing standing in front of me for the Platinum.  So much rage.

The Ico two hour speedrun. I still question myself why I didn't give up when I kept narrowly missing it by a few minutes and instead of throwing in the towel, I ended up doing another playthrough and got it.

I think i will nominate my "Extermination Addict" trophy in "Singularity". It may be not my rarest one but it sure is hell to play and complete 100 matches in "Extermination" mode because of one factor: You need 6 people to start one single match and that doesn't guarantee you complete it.

The Champion trophy in Motorstorm: Pacific Rift - getting all 96 gold medals in the Festival. It was infuriatingly difficult and the AI cheat so much in the Rank 7 and 8 events. I don't know why I was so determined to get that trophy considering it wasn't even for the platinum! When I finally got it I thought to myself, "Was it really even worth it??". The answer is no. No it wasn't 😂
