SegmentNext - "These trophies are not lolly pops fed to you by the developers. It will be OK if they made you cry".
Moxxis Arena (Second DLC for Borderlands) should be in there! It takes 3 odd hours to do 20 rounds and there is no checkpoint, so if you die you have to do all 3 hours again! ...and there is 3 of them! :(
WIpeout HD , beat ZICO .. my frist game with trophies, and i'll probably never get the platinium of it..
I have a few guys on my list that platinum'd W:HD...and yeah, it has to be one of the hardest game out there... but Zico actually isn't that bad...I was very close to taking it, but didn't try too much as there was still a bunch I needed to get...there are youtube videos on how to do it, and once you see the tricks on where to roll its just a matter of nailing them... but again...imo thats not the hardest trophy in the game...the up to level 70 in zones with ONLY air brakes?...getting the 'true' gold's on every event...etc...that is where it takes patience I simply don't have... Radec in killzone 2 is another one that probably shouldn't be on this list...He is actually easy, although it could be said you are using a 'glitch' or something...but putting your back to a wall and only using the knife makes him pretty much the easiest thing in the game when on elite (salumun bridge and a few other sections are WAY more difficult)...there are videos everywhere on how to do them too though... I can't believe that GT5 isn't on this list though...a game that takes over 600 hours of grinding to reach level 40 in a and b spec...not to mention getting 1000 cars in your garage...and with a handful of special events and license tests that will have you sawing your own head off within hours...the gold standard in GT5 has to be the single hardest trophy to accomplish on all of the PSN right now...a game that sold millions still only has a handful of people that have done it close to 6 months after it released...
well i have yet to see someone with a platinium of GT5 there is ..well so much to do
@Kleptic I had the insane idea of getting GT5s platinum but its got to be near gone impossible, 1000 cars and level 40 technically isint that hard just lot of grinding. Whats hard and take skill in that game is the 'Gold Standard' trophy, every single race event and licence with gold, as if the licences arent bad enough the 24 hour endurance races separate the men from the crazy, and there are 9 endurance races with all being 2 hours plus
^^I'm at about 50% through GT5's trophy set now, same boat though...'trying' to eventually get a platinum, but I say that with every game...and have only done it once haha... but GT5 is about 65% grinding, 35% skill...the grinding itself is actually easy, as the remote racing is just a new idea on RPG farming...and works great...so money quickly isn't a problem if you use that often and have a few dedicated friends as well... also, the endurance races can all be done in b spec...the b spec mode is what makes platinum not quite as impossible as you may think when first looking at it...as the gold standard trophy doesn't have a very in depth description...but you can get the trophy just by completing the offline races in a OR b spec...and b spec is the much easier route to take...winning nearly every event is actually pretty easy, and the endurance races are just a matter of leaving your PS3 on while the race is taking place... that leaves the special events...one of which is currently broken (the nascar challenge) as PD locked stability management on for the last 2 events in the series...making your car impossible slow through turns at Daytona...it seems like a glitch, that should be fixed eventually...as it wasn't this way until 1.06...but with ASM on, it simply can't be done...or if it can, i haven't figured it out yet... and yeah...thats one of about 15 of the 60 total license tests/and 20 odd other special events that you make you pull your own teeth out...tough isn't even a word to describe this...If I ever do get a platinum in GT5...its going to be the first thing listed on my resume...that illustrates commitment and work ethic well beyond what any college degree can give you...
SOCOM: Confrontation has one of the hardest trophy lists out there.
@Kleptic Ha ha, about 50% myself and hoping to get platinum myself, and said the same thing about every game and managed to platinum only MW2 :D Not sure about your grinding to skill precentage, because I haven't redone a single race for cr/xp. what do you mean the nascar challenge is broken? I got all golds in it, about few weeks back :/ Took awhile - yes, but nothing unbeatable. Same for licenses - got all golds. Special events also up till AMG driving academy, the extra long challanges are a chore for me :( But by far, the single most ridiculously hardest challenge, up to point of almost smashing my DS3 against my TV was the Top Gear Lotus Elise challenge. Now THAT required some super precise driving O_O I jumped in joy when I finally finished 1st, even my wife was happy about it and she doesn't even play games lol
GT5 Plat! is one of them
@Kleptic if the X 2010 Challenge does not break your will for the platinum nothing will.
do you know what version GT5 was at when you did the nascar challenge?...PD has since forced ABS on, and locked ASM on...I think it was 1.07 that did it...the event is EASY if you take off ASM, but with it forced on...its seemingly impossible for many...granted I haven't really really tried at it, but put in at least an hour straight the other day and couldn't even get bronze...and don't have a good idea of what exactly I am doing wrong... but yeah, grinding wise I haven't done that in anything other than b spec with remote racing...haven't run into any A spec event races that i had trouble with...and am now pretty much out of things to do accept most of the special events, finally go back through the licenses to get all golds, etc...but even after getting the gold standard, you will have to grind a good bit more to get a level 40 in a spec...thats all I meant... but the x2010 hasn't been too bad yet...golded monza within an hour (its just a matter of timing the 2nd chicane right, you can jump those curb stones at 150mph and not get disqualified), and am a few tenths off suzuka (thats the bad one apparently) for gold...but hopefully will have it tonight...then i'll put a night into nurbergring GP X2010 event...and be done with it...the nascar (because I hate nascar) was really the only special event i've spent much time with, i just wanted it over with...and have gold on all but the very last event which is 2 laps at daytona...and have been doing the x2010 stuff just because after you drive that for a few hours...everything else is cake... I hear the lotus challenge is tough too, like you mentioned...as the lotus tuned the way they give it to you is an ice skate...
Some guy on playfire had a GT5 platinum, i checked his PSN profile cause i thought he was lying LOL
GT5, I really think that game should have 2 platinums. Getting all gold on every event is a platinum in itself
Thats not how I remember it. If you died, you only lose the round. I think of it was after a few failed attempts, you went back a round. It was tough though. There has been times where we were on like near the end, and I d/ced. :/ Man I was p**sed. And I was the one hosting too >:( So I couldnt be invited back in as the game had been stopped.
Ive got the Platinums for MkvsDc, KZ2 and GTA4: so I have three of the trophies on the list. :)
but what about WARHAWK? It's not a game, it's a freaking career. Don't know when or if I'll ever attain it by the time StarHawk drops. @Blacktric (below) - yeah i know a lot of ppl talk bad about Far Cry 2 but I really loved that game (the custom map maker was a blast!) but yeah the plat trophy is a graduate course in masochism.
Far Cry 2's Warlord trophy (Achieve Rank 30 in Multiplayer) is definitely the hardest one. Earning XP is hard as f*ck already and if you add the required time to get enough XP to reach level 30... it's just impossible. Not to mention multiplayer portion of Far Cry 2 is nearly dead.
yep and the one for getting the bandoliers for all weapons even more so because 90% of games you get disconnected and sometimes you randomly lose all your xp from the previous day:(
Not if you know the glitch ;) Got my level 30 a few weeks ago :D Got sick of doing it legit to level 22
I was so glad/surprised when I beat Zico, lol'd that the trophy icon was a pic of his face :p
Nice, I have 3/10 on that list :)
The hardest trophy I've ever seen is for Mega Man 10 where you're required to play through the entire game and beat it without taking any damage. That's ridiculous.
Managed to get all the pain trophies, during the process I attempted to poke my eye out with an ice pick.
Sir, I would really like to shake your hand. -End statement
I actually got Killzone 2 on the hardest (the key is to bring a LMG to the last stage and use it when it gets hard [really, it works if you use the ammo really sparingly]) and the GTA IV one. Woo.
Heroic survivor in Kz2 was hard, but I think there is a even more difficult trophy than that in Kz2... The one who requires you to be among top 3% players or so in MP. shit. Killzone 3 was very easy to plat, it got one really difficult trophy though, but perhaps not worthy of this list. It was to take every single AA weapon on the mawlr.
i have kz2 platinum and almost demon souls. where is warhawk? i have guy on list with over 1000 hours online and still about 75% of trophies.
yep thats another one I forgot about... just becoming a full ranked general in an of itself takes something like 750 hours iirc...not to mention all the ridiculously difficult 'cowboy' trophies where you have to do it on a dedicated official server...have to win the match overall...have to have the most kills...and can't die one time...not dieing is easy, but not dieing and STILL having the most kills is impossible...
It does not have to be an official server, only as long as it is ranked, I know because I got it off a ranked un-offical server. I have not played in a long time, but I have about 70%-75% of the trophys. The one that seems pretty impossible for me is the large drop ship getting everyone to board it.
Oh dear, demon's souls. Create all weapons and find all unique weapons? No thanks. I gave up.
agree with really of them.
Did he really say you have to be Korean for the Street Fighter trophies
I know i have that trophy and it was real easy for me. BNut the one i can't get is the get every title. That is almost impossible.
Every title is almost automatic. What are you having trouble with?
I can finish like 70% off the peoples Mission mode or whatever sf4 called it. I can literally do everything but about 5-6 characters all the way thru. I think one of them is cammy,sagat and some others. I tried to watch the youtube because its obvious a timing thing but i just cant do it. Maybe if i go back now i can do it but at the time it was killing me i think i have like 94% on sf4 for trophies.
Took me 107 laps to beat Zico, that was almost 2 years ago and I still remember it, hell I even had the time to pause the game and record the moment the trophy showed up. I was pretty happy. Now that's a gaming experience that is worth it. WipEout HD's list is probably the most satisfying trophy list I've ever completed and one of the best (PS3) games I've ever played. €25 for more than 50 hours of gameplay = win. Any trophy that requires you to suffer instead of having fun = unnecessarily added. A challenge is supposed to give people an incentive to get more of their gaming experience/to improve on their skills, not to cut themselves.
So 107 attempts, not even including those zone mode trophies, wasn't suffering? I guess that's all a matter of perspective.
Aha, not at all! On the contrary, it was awesome as I was always getting closer and therefore more excited about the possibility of succeeding at it. Zone was/is my favorite mode, and I have probably spent 15 hours on Anulpha Pass( I reached Zone 91 and I'm in the top 100 D: ) I'd never have kept playing Zone or kept trying to beat Zico if I hadn't loved the game. But as it didn't get boring at all, it was an amazing experience. And it IS, actually, a matter of perspective. If you don't like WipEout but still try to get the trophies, you'll be suffering. If you love Resistance 2 and get 10 000 kills because you've kept playing, it wasn't suffering, it was having fun. People mustn't play for trophies, fun is all that matters. Which is why I play all my games on Hard (and WipEout on Elite even though I had never played the series before) for my first playthrough if the game's design isn't flawed, because it is by challenging yourself that you're going to get the most out of your games (and even if you're not good enough, you'd improve rapidly). Of course the scenario is different if the game becomes frustrating... I also need to add that little fact: As it would take around 35 seconds to complete a lap in Anulpha Pass when trying to beat Zico, 107 laps = an hour of gameplay, which is nothing, really.
Grand theft auto 4s trophy 'wanted' is a good example of why i don't like multiplayer trophies/achievements. Alot of people who play the co-op modes like hangman's noose and bomb da base are just there to farm XP and will kill you when you first spawn, kill you on sight and destroy your teams transport so he can run off get the first car he see's and beat you to the ship while your still sitting in a burned out chopper.
yeah developers have recieved enough negative feedback to really start dismissing online trophies entirely... Killzone 2's top % trophies were really what set it off from what I saw...most likely why killzone 3 has NOTHING like that trophy wise...it was a cool idea, but when it encouraged people to exploit balance issues that otherwise wouldn't have been that bad...it creates a serious problem...suicides in body count being the problem...sucide with a rocket launcher as an assault player...while killing one other person...would give you -1 point for your death, but +3 for the kill...so you still get +2 points everytime you do it...do that for a week straight as much as possible, and the trophy is yours...but you'll piss off everyone and their dentist while doing so...
heroic survivor is cake i beat the last stage with my knife xD
"Pain (Various)" lol'd at this. The whole trophy set for that game is fucking ridiculous. EDIT: They should've added the "I LOVE the Corps!" trophy from AvP. Marine campaign on Nightmare Mode is beyond stupid.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2... i said enough!
This man speaks the truth. Completing all mission trophy is perhaps the hardest Playstation trophy of all just because its not just your skill but you have to find another player who is just as skilled to get through the first 3 the Ultimate Ninja Missions and even then they are insanely hard.
don't forget the awful lags, I couldnt end those missions because of that reason. Too bad the game doesn't incorporate such feature like local co-op.
ohh man the beat those mission coop was ridiculous. Its true you need someone as good as you in order to complete. Crazy difficult on 1 shot bosses and missiles from off screen.
Warhawk has a tough platinum but Bioshock and the "I chose the impossible" trophy pretty much wins in toughest trophy, In my opinion.
Bioshock plats are easy. The only lame thing is getting to lvl 40 on part 2
Bioshock is one of the easiest platinums of all times, IMO, except maybe fore Assassin's Creed 2.
There should be a trophy for actually completeing a game before the next "mandatory" firmware update after update after update after update.
demon souls inst hard and radec ...getting to him is harder then fighting him back against wall controlled burst with lmg no prob
yep just putting your back to a wall is the trick, as he can then never spawn behind you...and close range he always tries to run up with knife, rather than fire at you with his lmg... but agreed...the first couple sections of the final level are the real problem on elite, as well as a few sections throughout the rest of the campaign...just get used to using the STA LMG at the end, thats apparently the only weapon it can be done with...puts them down quickly...with other weapons more enemies will respawn before you've finished killing the first wave...and you'll get no where...in a hurry...
I got the "Wanted" Trophy on 360, and DAMN, it was ridiculously long. But it's not THAT hard. Really, if you set aside an 1-2 hours every day to grind, you'll have it within ... oh say 3 or 4 weeks. Also, it's important to try to beat the timer every time, that way you can rack up $100K+ in an 1 hour and a half or so. Also, play with serious people, jokers be damned. Way too many griefers back in my days trying to get 1000K in GTAIV.
Only one I've got on that list is the Heroic Surivivor one, it was pretty hard. I tried to do some of the hard Street Fighter ones but that was a total joke.
GTA IV platinum is hard as f**k, 62 hours of single player gameplay and god knows how many hours of hangman's NOOSE on multiplayer, I can't even begin to imagine how hard GTA V's platinum will be when that comes out. 50 million dollars for level 10 in multiplayer?
K2 plat to this day is my crowning achievement, or trophy, lol. 8 straight hours to beat the balcony before radec. Also, the timed challenge room on arkham asylumn was a bitch.
I'm glad the Resistance 2 trophy for '10,000 kills' didn't make the list, too many people confuse trophies like that as hard, because a trophy that's time consuming =/= difficult; For example, Grand Theft Auto IV: Wanted is time consuming but not "hard", Wipeout HD is just hard. Too many devolopers have unfair online trophies (Resistance 2, FarCry 2, EndWar..etc) which create a cheap way of extending the life of their games, that stops the fun in my opinion.
That's the only trophy I'm missing for Resistance 2... as terrible as it sounds, I just... can't muster the focus to get it.
Thanks to a large chunk of people messing with modded consoles, and more specifically, trophy hacks, I tend not to take that much of a note of platinums in general. That said though, highest level person on my friends list is female (you know who you are!), and without a shadow of a doubt is 100% legit. Just goes to show, women are badass gamers too. *is roughly %50 through level 13* In all honestly I don't think online trophies should in most cases, be needed for platinums, sure throw some in there to be had, just to keep things fresh but including them as requirements for platinum is harsh - not everyone has an internet connection, and not everyone that does have a net connection, has the bandwidth/ping to handle them. I don't like ridiculously hard trophies like "complete entire game without dying even once, on hardest setting", but at the same time, I don't really like "You booted the game!, congrats, have yourself a trophy for that!" either.
I'd like to think you're talking about me but I don't want to be too over confident. xD You're right about those trophy hacks, I have a few people on my list (obviously not including yourself) that have used the hacks for Fuel and Socom to get their platinum. I really don't see the point, it would be like stealing a trophy from a friend and pretending you earned it. Flower has a few trophies like that, one for leaving the game paused for 10 minutes or so. Seriously? I earned a trophy for that? Come on...and GT5, I think there's a trophy for playing your own music.
Actually I did mean you xD The trophy hacks are a bad thing though, definitely, worst still, because people with hacked ps3's had access to psn (until recently), many were utilizing a tool which allowed them to more or less unlock 100% trophies without actually doing anything, in many cases without even owning the game either. Needless to say people who went from level 3 or 4, to level 16+ within a day, and pretty much anyone playing online with backup managers and so on, on my friends list, instantly found themselves kicked off my list! More on topic though, I like trophies that extend a game, or give you more of a reason to go back and explore, when Prince of Persia first released I didn't really take notice, picked it up a few years later (November last year, for £5!), and enjoyed it immensely, the trophies for it really do well to extend the life of the game and push you to not only explore (find all the seeds), but improve your combat ability (using all combos/attacks).
how is this a top of the page story?
whoever played that game and got all trophies i bow before you.
GTA: Wanted isn't hard. It's just vert time consuming... Something that takes time doesn't mean it's hard... I have platted GTA, prowd of it!
Damn i hate trophies like that fight night one. There's one pretty much nearly as impossible on Shogun 2. :(
Wipeout made me cry.
Damn I wouldn't wanna try any of the trophies honestly, they sound very time-consuming and annoying
Did you guys forget Pain lol... Some of those trophies are ridiculous... I think I got only 50%, its a fun game, but the trophies are some of the hardest Ive seen...
Only?! 50% in Pain is incredible!
lol thank you :-P
