Trophies & Achievements

  • A place for the trophy talk and achievements, too.

    Feel free to tell about your latest endeavours with these game culture artifacts: boast, ask for help, curse the hard ones or smile at the odd ones.

    I decided to make this kind of a general thread for the topic when I just got my 77th platinum trophy in Jak & Daxter on PS4. One of my favourite games, and a super easy platinum: just do everything. I like trophies. :)

  • I have been gaming since 1989 and I have zero platinum trophies! I think that's an achievement...

  • This is a great idea for a topic.

    The last platinum I got was for Downwell, 2 months ago. Pretty happy with that one as there is a decent bit of skill involved to get it.

    I haven't had any major urge to platinum something right now but I'll be interested in The Lost Legacy once I complete 1 run of it.

    I suppose I am a little tempted to go back and play Hellblade. For one I really like it but also it has a really easy Platinum trophy. Pretty much all of the trophies you acquire are gold and silver and only 1 is missable.

    Soon, I add another! Love the series this much

  • Here's the PSN account I use to play with my PS3 (alongside with my younger brother and my mom (yes, really), though I haven't been active with it in a long while. I have my own personal PSN account as well, which is jipostus (not big surprise), but I'm even less active with that.

    But then, I have my Steam account (which is jipostus, shocking, I know)... and that's a where I'm constantly, and here's the showcase for that:

    Though I do like achievements, I don't see myself much of a achievement hunter. But I do like showing off some of my rared achievements :D

  • A long time ago, I was in a discussion about what specific accomplishments I was proud of on my respective game profiles, so I'll list each here. This is going to be waaaay, WAAAAAAY, WWWWWWAAAAAAYYYYY too long to include my brief sentence per entry about why I hold each of these in high regard, so I'll just put the series, and all of the trophies/achievements that I'm happy/proud/oh-my-god-why-did-I-waste-my-life to have. (Please keep in mind that unless annotated, I did all of these by myself. Anything capitalized and bolded had someone present helping me.)

    PLEASE just browse the games you're interested in if you like. APOLOGIES to everyone for what I'm pretty sure is close to the longest post in the entire forum (Don't visit many subforums, so I'm sure this is false). I couldn't parse it down anymore (Yes, there was more) without feeling like I was doing an injustice.

  • @TokyoSlim play the Zero Escape games, they are basically beating the games, and they also happen to be my first and only two platinum's.

    Persona 5 will soon be the 3rd, I would have done it back in april when I finished my second playthrough, but I wasn't following a guide and I missed a very minor thing so I lost it.

  • Back in the day, I did all achievements in the original Nier for xbox 360. It involved a lot of grinding for materials I think to make or upgrade all weapons. Let´s just say something broke inside of me and today achievements are more a motivation to play a fun game a little bit more even without going all 100%.

  • @bard91 But then I'd have platinums.

  • @TokyoSlim I'm almost the same, except I have one platinum. It's for Telltale Walking Dead Season One. Just for finishing the game.

    I never understood the idea of trophies really, except as a guide perhaps for things to try and do in the game.

  • @Inustar Yeah. It's cool if someone is chasing them or whatever. I just don't really play that way. :)

    Dang millennials need a trophy for everything! /oldmanshakingfistatclouds

    if my ID ever finish loading I'll put it in this thread! :)

  • I'm not really one for trophies/achievements myself. I do admit to going for one or two platinums in my time, but for the most part i'd simply much rather move on and experience the core of a brand new game, as opposed to doing a lot of the small fluff that most games require for 100% completion outside of the main story.

    I personally can't think of a single trophy or platinum that is memorable to me, for anything that was particularly challenging or time consuming, it's mostly been a case of "thank god for that" when it's popped lol. text

  • Cool, this card system is neat.

  • Oh that's really cool that the card just links up

    Also I'm absolutely loving the stat that tells you how long it took to get a platinum or 100%

    Currently working on the Platinum trophies for Horizon Zero Dawn and Final Fantasy XV. Pretty close to getting them. Just need to do some fishing and kill Adamantoise in XV, and do some endgame collecting stuff in Horizon.
    After that I'm going to focus on Ghost Recon Wildlands since I hear that one is pretty easy. Might also get the plat for Division if I can find anyone to do stuff in the Darkzone with me, since that is all I need.
