NowGamer- "Does your flagging Trophy level need a desperate quick fix? If you’re brave enough, we have a punishing 24-hour schedule to nab you a staggering 151 Trophies."
Now that is sad. Most of them aren't even good games lol.
I remember getting the Terminator Salvation platinum, just for the lulz. What an awful game
I hope you rented it. I wouldnt want to waste money on such game.
i played it too for an easy platinum, and to be a game bandit taking advantage of gamestops week return policy. i didnt find the game too awefull. i just found it to be a really low budget title
I bought it used and returned it wen i was done. I thought it wasn't that bad, as everyone said. I understand if you paid $60 when it came out you would be pissed. But if you bought it as a rental or just to beat over the weekend it was one of those games that are so bad that they become fun.
I'm a trophy whore, but I wouldn't result to playing about half the trash on that list. However, I am guilty of the Terminator Salvation platinum... that game is a blasphemy to all things good about gaming. @Bobertt There is nothing fun about cheap deaths. There is nothing fun about a game freezing up. There is nothing fun about having only 3 enemy types in a game. There is nothing fun about completely linear gameplay. I scored the game for $15 new and still want to see a class action lawsuit for ill treatment/torture of gamers around the world.
@guitarded77 I would say the glitches were annoying but i was still able to beat it in a day and most games these days have bugs and glitches so i don't count it. A lot of games are linear these days also. I remember some hard areas where you get trapped if you don't kill them fast enough but i wouldn't call them cheap deaths. Play the tank mission in Blackops on Veteran thats a cheap piece of shit.
It was a nightmare, it's such a good concept for a game, but it's so, so broken that it's just not fun. It's like they never played any other cover based TPS from this gen. Frustrating. I also played Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs to platinum, not hard, not awful, just kind of there.
I really enjoyed Salvation. Great weekend rental.
Yeah, im not that desperate....
I would want 3 platinums across 3 games rather than 151 trophies from like 10 random games.
HAHA! Yea, really. Hell - you could get like 500 trophies in a day if you just play through all the Pixar licensed games and Hannah Montana :D
If you go and buy these games just to get trophies.....then trophies have done their job. I only saw maybe 2 or 3 games I actually enjoyed
Haha yeah should at least mentioned infamous 2. Not only a fantastic game, but it can be platinumed within the 24 hour mark if done correctly. While I honestly cannot go for 24 hour straight of gameplay.
ps3t says its 20+ hours for the infamous 2 plat. it probably took me 30 hours http://www.ps3trophies.org/...
whoever made this list forgot that BTTF released on blu ray disc with a platinum trophy.
I think this was just in Europo no? I havent seen a BTTF blu ray title here in States.
No, it's retail in the States as well. http://www.amazon.com/Back-...
Honestly, didn't see the point in this article...
This does not affect me as I am immune to this sort of thing.
Whats the point? You might as well just buy Xploder and cheat all the trophies if you are going to play crap games just to get them anyway...
Xploder...what is this you speak of?
Oh, you're one of those...
Stupid. Play games you want to play.
To be fair, God of War 3 is an easy platinum (If I can do it, im sure its not that difficult) but that is a platinum worth getting. I mean like if I REALLY like a game, I am obviously going to try and finish everything it has to offer, and in doing so the trophies unlock naturally. I was more interested in unlocking new cars and challenges in Burnout than I ever was about unlocking trophies for doing it... They have always just kind of been "there" tbh. If I dont care about achievements on the 360, I definitely dont care about Sonys copy of it.
Interesting you say that is a copy of the 360's. I am curious as to what you mean by copy as the PS3's trophy system is entirely different. It uses an RPG element of leveling up. As levels are gained, increases in trophy requirements are needed to access the next level. I have a hard time related that to a gamerscore point system. Just for clarification here is the definition of copy. "A thing made to be similar or identical to another." It is far from a copy. Inspired? Sure.
Ok lets not get technical. Its not a copy by all means the trophy system is a tad bit deeper and much more engaging than Microsofts Achievement system.
Oh yes, the trophy system is fantastic. I love how you level up depending on the grade of each trophy. Such an addicting way to make a gamer play more.
An RPG element lol. Semantics. You know exactly why someone would compare the two, 'copied' or not, they work exactly the same. Its just the way they are tallied on PS3 that's different.
Indeed, although it was implied that Sony carbon copied the same system which entirely untrue. Are they similar? Of course. Did Sony take an idea and expand upon it as devs asked if a similar system could be developed? Probably. This is a somewhat pointless debate.
This is horrendous list. I love collecting trophies I LIKE! Im not going to be wasting 30 bucks on a crappy game for trophies, looks cheap and desperate. I rather have a great platinum like Mortal Kombat and little trophies than platinums like Hannah Montana and Megamind.
Agreed. Said perfectly.
Godfather 2. My first platinum and definitely the easiest one to get (of the ones I have gotten so far). Despite what some may say, Toy Story 3 is sort of difficult actually, since collecting and keeping track of all the stickers/decorations, etc isn't a simple task.
Who gives an eff about trophies, really. I got buddies who rent crappy games just to get some trophy. Whoopdie effin doo, u got a trophy in Cabalas Big Game Trophy, whoooo hooo !!
Have you considered that by trying so many games they might actually find new types of games they really find fun, that they might have not bothered with without the incentive of trophies. I haven't played Cabalas Big Game, but maybe it is a lot of fun, if I were a more avid collector of trophies, maybe I would have played it by now. It's like playing Soccer games on N64 back in high school, I would have never even tried it, but my friend rented it on a whim due to the 4-player support. We played those games like crazy after we discovered how much fun they were.
Actually, I thought this was a super interesting article. A 24 hour gauntlet of mostly shit games doesn't sound like anyone's cup of tea, but it's cool reading about how one might go about doing this regardless.
A couple of games on that list are actually worth trying! .DeTuned & Linger In Shadows are worth checking out, both are easy 100% but enjoyable while they last. Back To The Future is a must for any fan of the movies. But whoever wrote the list missed of some gems for those that like to get easy trophies, such as Trine 2 as it is a must for any trophy hunter, not only does it have its fair share of gold you can actually get plat without even having to finish the game lol its obtainable at chapter 7 about half way through. For a cheap plat its actually an awsome game!
Hell, if you play Trine 2 online co-op with someone who has finished it, they can select the chapter, so you only have to play specific parts of the game!
I bet it would look good on the PSVita!!! I hope we can play it on PS Vita as well!!! Come on SONY, give us the HD collections on VITA as well...
WHY would you even want those trophies, there is no use for them, only sometimes they make you do something fun, but playing 24Hours of mostly worst games ever made just to get trophies that have no use is just too damn pointless.
Boring games. I rather complete my Dark Souls trophy collection instead.
Play shitty games :)
Easiest plat I got was with socom 4. I suggest you pick it up it's prob real cheap now.
cant even remember my first plat know my favorite though is demon souls
Those indeed are some kaki games I love trophies but I will not have games like Terminator or Hanna Montana under my ID.I like to play game worth playing.
Good plats that aren't too tough: Borderlands and Kingdoms of Amalur. Currently trying to push myself to finish Skyrim Thief Guild quest line for the plat. If anyone plats Wipeout, MK, SF4, WKC2, or any of the Disgaea series - that is pretty impressive.
Back to the Future is a bad game? was thinking bout picking it up they should of at least include a copy of a bluray copy of the back to the future
Meh, this hardly says anything at all really. In theory you can do Motorstorm RC in 10 hours (24 trophies) then just sync the save on your Vita and get 48 trophies with 2 platinums. Boot up Resistance Burning Skies (4 or so hours) and get another 25 or 73 with 3 platinums. Boot up Trine 2 (3 or so hours)and hit 86 with 4 platinums. Zip over to Tekken Tag HD for 36 in 1 hour (yes it can be done in an hour) and hit 122 with 5 platinums. Since we're at 18 hours, you can round this off with God of War and get 36 more or 158 and 6 platinums. Not only did I list better games than the original article and a higher overall score, but the games are also higher quality. However in the end, who cares? It's not like anyone is impressed by getting X trophies in X time.
Im in the minority, as i actually liked playing duke nukem, not enough to platinum it but i did like it.
