PushSquare: "Burnout Paradise predates this website. It was released in January 2008, at a time when I didn't have to play every game that released. I picked it up sometime in September. Being a fan of arcade racers, it still bemuses me that I didn't buy it earlier, and I honestly can't for the life of me recall why. But I didn't - I picked it up late. At the time trophies were new, and Criterion had pledged a retrospective patch to all Burnout endeavours. I played the game for roughly 35 hours and then the trophy patch landed. It wasn't retrospective, so I started all over again. Immediately. 30 hours later I had my platinum trophy. I loved that game."
