Meet the Man with 40,000 PlayStation Trophies

Push Square: "It's a warm yet rainy evening in New Hampshire, but Michael 'Roughdawg4' Sinclaire is uninterested in the weather. He's got a DualShock 3 controller in hand, and his gaze is fixed on a nearby television screen. White Knight Chronicles, the oft-forgotten PlayStation 3 collaboration between Japan Studio and Level-5, is the focus of his attention. He's working on his 887th Platinum Trophy."

I got excited yesterday about getting my 21st platinum.... nothing like getting knocked down a peg.

Ha! I got my 21st platinum about 2 weeks ago with Sound Shapes. Thank you PlayStation Plus :D

What this guy did is crazy impressive. Compared to him, I feel like I've been waisting my time on my Playstation. I have ZERO platinums...The closet game I got to platinum is Bloodborne (Damn you Defiled Chalice Dungeon). And I like playing RTTS mode in MLB The Show (sunk 70+ hours into MLB 14 & have a total of 5 bronze trophies, thanks a lump Sony San Diego)

I find it really odd that you feel that you've been wasting your time on Playstation because you haven't got a certain number of trophies.

Can you just imagine how many mundane activities this guy has undertaken, to get this? Right now he is busy trying to plat White Knight Chronicles without online play. That involves repeating the same quests over and over again, for minimal reward, in order to achieve something he probably won't be able to accomplish because the games late-game quests are designed for 4 people (seriously, he even admits it might not be doable in the interview).

So long as you have been having fun, you haven't been wasting time! In fact, playing games that you love, rather than playing games you don't necessarily like, in ways that aren't necessarily enjoyable (trophy hunting) seems like a much better use of your free time.

I only have 1 platinum so far.. :P

Rimeskeem1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

I have 2 which were both earned this year.

The Order and Rocket League!



Neonridr1154d ago

lol.. I only got Infamous so far.

Contrast is the only other game that I have 100% so far and it didn't have a platinum.

Of course I am a little late to the party with the PS4 being my first Sony machine..

ShaunCameron1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

Me? 3 Platinum Trophies. 720 Trophies total.

Resident Evil 5
Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus
Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time

I got excited yesterday about getting my 63rd platinum, nothing like my 6 platinum of the month with a chance of 2-3 more by the end of the month.

butchertroll1155d ago

Hakoom has more trophies :

He is also the first player who reached 1 000 000 points for winning Trophies

Dark_Overlord1155d ago

Yet neither are single people and are in fact groups, which isn't anywhere near as impressive.

Roughdawg admitted it was a group a few years ago, and I've called Hakoom out on numerous occasions (to which he never replies) as to how he can play 2 ps3 games (which trophy times show) at the same time.

Hakoom1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

if you followed my videos i explained and showed how i am gaming...
i never reply?
i burried you everytime along with your friends
you cannot prove it.. and you just spit anything at me me withour proof.
so instead of accusing please show valid proof before i report you for personal attacks
i even have videos explaining everything i do since 2009
if you arent watching those videos it isnt my fault..
iam waiting for the things you called me out on so i can reply infront of everyone now
cmon iam waiting... :)

MysticStrummer1154d ago

"iam waiting for the things you called me out on so i can reply infront of everyone now"

Well… one of them is in the comment you replied to, so why not set the record straight on that?

Hakoom1154d ago

Lol,and I thought I was a hardcore gamer

Tetsujin1155d ago

I have a level 18 trophy level and still consider myself a hardcore gamer. Why? Because I play games, not scores. I use trophies as a "checklist" of what I completed in a game, not as a status of "OMG I'm top of the food chain!"

Outside bragging rights what is the prize for getting all those trophies? Nothing? Ok I'll continue to play at my own pace and for fun.

Neonridr1155d ago

didn't you know? Chicks dig gamerscores.. :P

TomatoDragon1155d ago

Heh, sounds just like me. I game in the evening after the wife and child are asleep.
My wife games also though, but she can only last until around 9pm before she falls asleep. :)
