To celebrate the ten year anniversary of PlayStation trophies, let's look at the five most ridiculous platinum trophies of all time.
Fortnite is just an absurd grind not necessarily that difficult, but the hardest platinum trophies are from games like Super Meatboy and even moreso, Crypt of the Necrodancer.
Super Meat boy! I intended to platinum it, but I never went to see the complete list of trophies until not too long ago. I said to myself back then : "the hardest one must be getting a+ every stages", but no. They had to include a "complete all worlds without dying once" for each world, including the dark world versions! How crazy is that ?!?!?!
Still never seen any harder than Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter Be #1 on the Leaderboards
For me it was the first mirrors edge.
Yakuza 0 was a bit** hidden behind Japanese language/mahjong lol
Overwatch's and Final Fantasy X for me Other multiplayer games these days or if they have an online part of the game Final Fantasy IX...those 200 jumps...urgh
Final Fantasy IX 1000 jump rope is total bullshit. Luckily you can use an auto clicker script with PS Remote Play
I got to 680, lost focus for one second and failed. I couldn't believe it... decided to collect all the cards instead haha
Shit its 1000 That’s even worse...Christ
DC heroes such as Deadpool, Harley Quinn and Quicksilver lol Damn, I do not take this list seriously.
I don't bother going after the platinum if the becomes too much of a chore and makes the game not fun anymore. I hate online trophies so usually don't platinum any games that have with the exception of a few.
Agreed. I almost never go for the platinum, but it's pretty interesting to hear how ridiculous some games make it...
There are two more that definitely need to be on this list. Elder Scrolls Online for the Emporer trophy, possibly the most BS trophy of all time. I’d also nominate Wolfenstein 2 for the absolutely retarded Mein Leben trophy. I’d give an honorable mention to Super Meat Boy too.
Normally I still play games I know I'm not going to platinum, but when I saw that complete BS wolfenstein trophy for completing the game on the hardest setting without dying once, I didn't bother with the game at all.
Speaking of platinums I couldve gotten $20 from the sony reward for my near 20 platinums since they added trophies to the rewards but notice last week I didn't unlocked the challenges before hand and they don't count.
How many platinums did you have?
Just gotten the 18th one Saturday which was gow3. It was a slap to the face when I found out that I had to unlock it to start the progression.
Yeah, I've been taking advantage of that. Sucks that it isn't retro active as I had about 110-120 platinums when it started, but oh well, Still ended up getting a very heavy discount on god of war thanks to that.
killzone 2 was the hardest
I tried, but man, that trophy list is brutal. I loved the mp though.
mp was the best for sure
No it wasn't. I got it and it was no where near as diffcult as other games I have tried
Platinums that require online trophies.....unfair.
Especially if they require servers to be active when they decided to turn them off. EA! Lol
Yep its worst when there's only one trophy that requires online that just requires you to send gifts to friends (darksiders2), and glitched trophies that's never fix. Also to note grind fest trophies that requires a large amount of something which you already gotten all the other trophies 20hrs before it. Makes you want to give up on it.
Yeah went back to play gta 4 for the trophies recently and the fun story but the online was mostly abandoned so couldn't unlock any trophies
I always felt Lost Planet 2 and ESO platinums were absolutely unfair.
All NBA games are difficult. And I put in thousands of hours into each one of them. Smh
One of the worst is the Lost Planet 2 platinum!
Right? That's about downright wrong.
Metal Gear Solid 4’s Songs of the Battlefield Trophy is preventing me from getting the platinum
I love MGS4, what is the trophy? I would just google it, but yeah...
100% Wolfenstein 2? I'm like 3rd from hardest difficulty and took me like 2 hours to beat the courtroom scene because I kept insta-dying.
Outlast 2, that 'Messiah' trophy is ridiculous
Star Ocean 4 The Last Hope
Dark Souls platinums come to mind. Not because the games are hard. That can be overcome. But because the INSANE grinde to collect weapons, spells, miracles, rings...what have you. Now I'm suffering on DSR because have to collect......😡
Agreed, the collection trophy's are the only ones that keep me from the platinum trophy's
Killzone 2 and Resistance 2. This list is extremely pitiful compared to really unfairly hard platinum trophies. Killzone 2 required 2 weeks of dedicated grinding to get in the top 1% of the entire online community. Resistance 2 required and absurd amount of hours to be put in. Both of these games have to be played/platnumed while their services are running. Let’s not get started on games like Warhawk.
I have that one.. KZ2 sweet
Killzobe 2 and Resistance 2 werent bad f0r me just because im good at online shooters. But getting those Warhawk ranks was super time consuming. I never even finished and I played the hell out of that game
Tough platinums make me laugh. I enjoy watching people break down and get pissed or cry after realizing that they won't be able to achieve them.
The game Pain on the ps3 has been one of the toughest platinum trophies to get, at least for me. I've been working in it for years... only 63% ughhh. Great game though.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is what made me quit trophy hunting. Until that I used to platinum all my fav games.
Haha leave it to Ninja Gaiden. Those games were fucking hard. I will platinum games that are reasonable and I want to continue playing. But as soon as they go "collect all _____" I just stop. I'm not ticking boxes off of a map.
I feel that's like many team ninja games. Cause doa5 had that hard as survival mode that I'm stuck on.
The difficulty of the game was fine and I got all the trophies of the single player story mode. Then came the trophies for the co-op missions where you had to fight 3 or 4 bosses at the same time. The AI co-op partner was crap so you had to rely on finding a good co-op buddy with a good connection to be able to clear it. I could never find a good player or good connection to complete those.
Lol I gave up on it for years until I was like F it ill try one more time. I luckily found one of those pros to help with it and finally gotten it.
Burn Zombie Burns has the hardest Trophies but the Platinum would be SFV.
The plat for Mortal Kombat 9 was complete and utter BS.
Resistance 2 and Dead Space 2. I had 2 difficult ones for DS2 and 1 for Resistance 2 which kept from me platinuming them.
The Long Dark.
FFX... That damn sphere grid is bs!
The Last of Us. Uncharted's trophies were all single-player trophies, with the exception of playing a specific mode to get you to try new multi-player modes but weren't bad. All of the multi-player trophies from that point on were instead medals so you didn't have to do multi-player if you didn't want to but if you did, you were still rewarded but I got all of Uncharted's Platinum Trophies. The Last of Us changed that and is the only Naughty Dog Platinum I've never been able to get and my OCD is killing me. Why haven't I gotten The Last of Us multi-player platinum trophy? Multi-player.
The 1st Assassin's Creed was a MAJOR Pain getting all the flags in the Kingdom area.
Twinfinite sucks for at least 2 reasons in this article alone. 1 is they ALWAYS split their article across multiple pages for cheap extra hits. 2. They called Deathstroke Deadpool even though Deathstroke was the inspiration for Deadpool...
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Mein leben - Beat the game on "Mein leben" difficulty - permadeath feature: restart from the beginning of the game when you die. -.01% of all players on PS4 have achieved it
Any game that requires multiplayer to win a platinum is completely unfair. Edit: Unless the game is online only.
