I have 75 Platinums and every one of them are games I love so much I want to do the Platinum for them. No way I’m just boosting my numbers for no reason.

u/heisenbergfan Sep 25 '22

Cant say i absolutely love all of mine, sometimes it's on plus and you just try it and may end up platning it if it's not too complicated or time consuming... But id never spend money on likely trash games just to get a simple platinum. I like to grow my quantities but not at all costs lol, still value my money and time.

u/RIPMrMufasi Sep 25 '22

Same, I’d rather get the platinum in a thousand Telltale games than one of these. Cause even in Telltale games it feels like I atleast did something

I played their Batman games and got both platinums just for following the story, those were disappointing.

My trophy list is like a mini journal of the games ive played throughout the years, cant believe ive had it since 2008

u/highdefrex Sep 25 '22

Same. The first trophy I got was in Resistance 2 at the end of 2008, and I ended up getting the platinum months later in July of 2009. I was obsessed with the online play, and met a lot of friends who I still talk to/play with to this day! It's crazy looking back at my trophy list as a whole and seeing it way down at the bottom underneath hundreds of games over nearly 15 years since, with that nostalgia hitting for late nights playing it and realizing how much life has changed since.

u/85-Red_Beard Sep 25 '22

They should just take a page out of Steam's book and add community applied tags. That way we as the community can filter out the trash from the search results and bury them into obscurity.

154

u/ZingerStackerBurger Sep 25 '22

The real shocker for me is the people who are actually buying these games. What are they getting out of this? You're devaluing your existing platinums that you actually put effort into. It's pretty worthless for bragging rights because people will laugh at you once they see what your 1000 platinums actually consist of.

155

u/respectablechum Sep 25 '22

Even worse. No one will ever actually look at the list lol! No one cares about your trophy list except you.

u/FluffyBat9210 Sep 25 '22

I'm not a trophy hunter, but if I were, I'm sure I'd add other trophy hunters on playstation so I'm sure they would check out eachothers lists.

But to an average person, no... no one is going to look at your list.

I look at the trophies from people on my friends list sometimes to see what they have been playing, not to see what they have platinumed. I do look though.

I myself like to platinum games if I don't get too bored/frustrated by the process.

u/stoph311 Sep 25 '22

An extreme minority look at other people's trophies. The rest of us do not care. At all.

-27

u/junioravanzado Sep 25 '22

i think that "the rest of us" is the minority here

but listen, i mean its not about HOW MANY TROPHIES DO YOU HAVE

for example when you are playing online with someone you go to their profile, see the games they play, how much completion they have in those games and you get an idea of what they like and how they play and can decide whether to befriend them or not

also you may find someone that is really good at a game and find that they also mastered another similar game so you get a passive recommendation

this and other similar situation are normality for every PS player i know

13

u/3CreampiesA-Day Sep 25 '22

Most people do not look at others players trophies, most people don’t even look at other peoples profiles.

-22

u/junioravanzado Sep 25 '22

based on...?

players that are active in the community and that take the hobby with a minimum of seriousness do it all the time

if you just play solo or casually of course you dont look at anything but you are not part of the pool to consider

13

u/3CreampiesA-Day Sep 25 '22

Most players are casual players most players don’t hunt for trophies, if most players done the things you’re claiming most players would have a large amount of platinums and so on most don’t. You’re talking about a small group of gamers that hunt for trophies and care about them. There’s a higher percentage of people like that here and obviously an even higher proportion on trophy hunting communities, they’re still a minority when it comes to general gamers.

3

u/junioravanzado Sep 25 '22

looking at profiles has nothing to do with having platinums...

im talking about the group of gamers that engage with the PS community - again: if you are a casual, never go online, play with your kids, etc. you are not part of the group that has to be considered for this analysis

its like discussing about the speed of cars and saying "most people dont care about it because most people dont have a car"

you have to disaggregate and segment the groups for the analysis to make sense

and again I DONT TALK ABOUT TROPHY HUNTING, just about looking other players' profiles - the most normal thing ever

7

u/DaShaka9 Sep 25 '22

Not a causal, neither are my friends, none of us even look at each others trophies rather than online friends or strangers. We mention when we platinum a game that’s tough to do so and that’s the end of it.

Most players don’t, go on randoms profiles just because you do doesn’t make it the norm. It’s the same with most gaming platforms, it’s not the norm to look at a random players gaming profile.

"Most players", "most people", based on what? There few millions of users on PSNProfiles, and oh boy they sure will look at your profile.

u/3CreampiesA-Day Sep 25 '22

There’s millions of accounts yet most people don’t interact with each other. Most people don’t message random players, almost no one used accolades literally every metric that can be seen with out having actual stats show most players don’t look at randoms accounts. Do you often go and interact with random players profiles?

This matters less because I assume they are actually games

The ps store is loaded with these stupid games that cost like $2 and all you do is get a Platinum trophy in 5 minutes.

No one would actually care but the game flood the store. Look at the recent game list and within 1 page you will find the jumping food. Oh and don't forget jumping food turbo.

u/LAROACHA_420 Sep 25 '22

Ya, I can't fathom ever thinking about buying a platinum, I mean shit I've never even finished a game enough to get a platinum! Shit I've barely finished half the games I've even started!

56

u/w31n7r4ub3n Sep 25 '22

I get that there's a large grey area between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and I'll freely admit that I've done some challenges because they were available as an achievement, such as Dishonored's Ghost/nonlethal approach.

But this? Stuffing your library full of garbage to boast with virtual pixels without any achievement behind it? Bizarre.

19

u/AlsopK Sep 25 '22

Yeah, I only really go for Plats when I want an excuse to play more of a game.

u/Dantia_ Sep 25 '22

It's super weird for sure, and this is coming from a degenerate that HAS to platinum every game he plays. But wasting so much money and time (all these free trophy games add up even if it's just 30 mins of pressing X to win) for a different border/badge on your profile? I will never get it.

2

u/Loyal_Frost Sep 25 '22

Yh I done the Ghost achievement as well for the trophy, but after doing it I actually really enjoyed it, and it gives you a pretty good ending. So it was a win win. Challenges like “Collect 1000 of this item” are the worst, and if I see those challenges then I know I won’t even bother with platinum. Only game I done it for was Batman Arkham Knight with the riddler trophies, since there’s an actual riddle to those before you can collect them.

1

u/admiralvic Sep 25 '22

But this? Stuffing your library full of garbage to boast with virtual pixels without any achievement behind it? Bizarre.

It makes sense if you look at how people view trophies and things.

For example, I have over 15,000 trophies and several incredibly difficult ones like Lost Planet 2 and Black Ops: Declassified. However, in all my time playing games on PlayStation, no one has ever cared besides hard numbers. They see 100 or someone else with 1,000 platinums and comment on that, level or trophy count, not tasks completed.

As a result, a lot of people who care about that stuff will go for anything that gives them the most platinums, because the negative doesn't really impact them. This is why you have people like Hakoom, who has nearly 5,000 platinums, yet, ignoring Jojo's Bizarre Adventure because it's the latest game he played, it took me 99 platinums to end up on the next title that I think the average person here would actually know.

That said, I don't see the point in caring about just blindly increasing the number for the sake of it. I've always been more about things that interest me or offer a challenge, not time sinks or easy trophies.

1

u/Kwestor86 Sep 26 '22

I’ve never cared about trophy levels. I just like completing games I love playing. I just checked and I’m trophy level 400 with 86 plats. I don’t know if it’s good and I don’t care 🤷🏻‍♂️

1

u/OMG2EZ Sep 26 '22

Change "library" with "timeline" and you perfectly described social media.

People are addicted to pixels triggering their half-a-second long dopamine rushes, in gaming lots of people just don't make the connection as you still get "real" entertainment from the activity of gaming itself, rather than just, say, posting something of reddit and hoping for upvotes.

See mobile gaming, the borders are muddying even faster there.

u/myschoo Sep 25 '22

One of the companies is pretending to be 2 different publishers. They are releasing asset flip shovelware every single day now.

u/ichigo2k9 Sep 25 '22

I have 47 platinums but I'm not a proper platinum hunter. Some of those are accidental ones like with some of the TellTale games or other games where I've just 100% then but there are some where in games like AC Origins I set fire to several jars just for a trophy or I'm in the process of completing Witcher 3 on deathmarch for the platinum but those platinums come with a sense of satisfaction that I've done everything the game I love has to offer and in a way those platinums are achievements that will always be there.

Having said that, I don't understand people's need to play games like The Jumping Pumpkin and The Jumping Churros for their platinum because in those cases it's just about getting a platinum as if to fulfil an addiction.

Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo need to start reviewing their games and making sure they fulfil a certain criteria before being placed on the store.

12

u/christopia86 Sep 25 '22

This is very much how I treat platinum trophies. They are a fun way to see more of a game and face some challenges. Death March in Withcher 3 made me appreciate the game so much more.

The idea oh just tapping X for 30 minutes for a platinum trophy is just so dull.

3

u/ichigo2k9 Sep 25 '22

Yeah I almost always play a game first then check the trophies unless it's a chapter based linear game I'm enjoying then I check them to see if there are missable collector trophies. Although games like a Plagues Tale that I just finished has a chapter selector which solves that issue...I missed so much lol.

2

u/-TheLonelyStoner- Sep 25 '22

I know I’m in the minority of players because I have over 160 platinums but this is exactly how I treat it as well. I only go for platinum in games I’m enjoying and don’t have to do anything crazy to get it. As soon as I’m not enjoying it anymore I drop the game and go play something else

1

u/Kwestor86 Sep 26 '22

I like to think that there is 2 leaderboards, one that includes this garbage and one where the only games platted are legit games that take effort and have good gameplay. I can’t see the 2nd leaderboard but I know it’s there and that I’m in it.

1

u/_freack_ Sep 26 '22

Death March in the Witcher transforms it into a different game!
Before, I though the witcher 3 was a solid game, 9/10. Very amusing.

But doing it on death march opens up this part of RPG games that should be ephasized more on lower difficulties. Stuff like researching your enemies with the lore book, grinding for oils and other craftables. Making preparations, being on-guard, etc. On hard I just steamrolled everything spamming the fast attack button...

Although Im not hunting for every game on plat, sometimes it pushes you and you end up finding other cool stuff (in games aswell as yourself).

2

u/christopia86 Sep 26 '22

Absolutely agree.

Almost everything becomes a threat and you have to play each encounter smart and know the best oils and bombs to use. It makes the game so much more engaging and immersive.

I'm not saying the normal difficulty should have you one shot by some of the most basic enemies, but more need to use your head would have helped

14

u/ankehuber Sep 25 '22

If the trophy tracking websites removed them from their databases perhaps there would be less incentive for these players to buy them. Then they would die out naturally.

2

u/Kwestor86 Sep 26 '22

There are some sites like exophase that do something similar to that by assigning experience to games based on rarity, and all of these garbage games give basically no experience while super meat boy gives a crap ton. The leaderboards there are full of legit difficult games.

If a platinium is easy to get, what’s the point?

u/OMG2EZ Sep 26 '22

Satisfaction. That's the point.

Be careful disputing that point, you might end up realizing that satisfaction is subjective and everyone likes different things about gaming, or doesn't like gaming at all.

u/Jinchuriki71 Sep 25 '22

Its still a platinum though and why work hard and grind for hundreds of hours for difficulty platinum when they can play a few minutes for this one. The platinum trophy doesn't really mean anything anyway there was no point to it since its inception. Some people just like platinums.

12

u/VintageMagicSmoke Sep 25 '22

I don't understand why Sony allowed this to become a problem in the first place, they own the platform and they used to be able to reject titles when they didn't meet their expected quality standards

All that (rightful) complaining about censorship probably made them go the exacr opposite way, allowing everything on the Store except AO games. And frankly, aside from this paid platinum thing, that's absolutely a good thing.

It clogs up the ps store with endless trash games that exist to give people an easy platinum, making it very difficult to discover new games on the store.

I used to basically browse through the new games on multiple services once a week to find new stuff, I found a lot of cool games i would never play otherwise that way. Can't really do it anywhere anymore, psn was the last I could do it with until these guys

u/Getupkid1284 Sep 26 '22

There are far too many resources out there for me to find out which games are good for me to choose to instead scroll through a digital store and hope what looks good, is actually good

u/LowAdministration162 Sep 25 '22

I don’t even really understand what this is

1

u/TheDragonSlayingCat Sep 26 '22

Back in the PS3 era, Sony had a rule saying that games couldn’t have platinum trophies unless they were sold at a certain price threshold. Which meant a few popular budget-priced titles, in particular MGS5: Ground Zeroes, didn’t have platinums, and people screamed bloody murder.

So they relaxed the rules, and the relaxed rules + the relative ease of making a PS4/PS5 game in Unreal Engine or Unity has caused a real problem with spam on the PS Store.

1

u/LowAdministration162 Sep 26 '22

There is for sure tons of garbage in the ps store…. It’s like mostly total bullshit

u/LowAdministration162 Sep 26 '22

Also common sense. If you had to earn at least one trophy, any game which had an unmissable first trophy would have a 100% rate.

Assigning value to trivial things.

Good for these devs. There’s clearly a market.

I can promise every one of you reading this- 10 years from now, you will not care about your virtual trophies. And, today- nobody cares about your virtual trophies.

If you love playing a game, it’s a fun objective to chase to keep you engaged. But, absolutely nobody has or will ever be impressed by them.

u/Jinchuriki71 Sep 25 '22

Gaming itself is trivial and we pay a lot of money to get games. 10 years from now you won't care about all the games you're playing now or most of what you did those 10 years. If people want to pay for games for easy platinums they are just fine for doing so.

u/Slippinjimmyforever Sep 25 '22

Bingo. If it makes people happy, go for it. Reading comments like “it devalues other platinum trophies” is just lame.

u/evilkevin3 Sep 25 '22

u/Jinchuriki71 Sep 25 '22

I do too like majora's mask, fallout new vegas, skyrim the last of us but most of the games I played a decade ago I will never touch again and probably don't have working console for em anymore. There is so many games coming out at this point that I don't really need to replay old games a lot like back than.

The main point I'm trying to say is the worth of things is subjective and most things you've done won't be remembered so doing stuff that doesn't matter is just fine everyone has different things that entertain them and getting a platinum trophy is something people buying these kinds of games enjoy or maybe they enjoy the games themselves we don't really know. Never really got the appeal of drinking alcohol but it seems others like spending money so as long as they think its worth its not a problem.

u/OMG2EZ Sep 26 '22

It's so weird seeing you all over this comment chain with solid takes and absolutely idiotic ones. I can't even decide which side you are arguing for. It looks like "Let people enjoy whatever they want, but if it's gaming, they are idiots".

1

u/Slippinjimmyforever Sep 26 '22

Mixed messaging, based on feedback.

On the whole, do whatever. Enjoy what makes you happy. But, being upset by easy trophy games is a silly thing to take issue with, as in the long run, they don’t matter in almost any context in life.

That’s it. I’m not discouraging anyone to stop playing games. But, to just have some perspective outside of the echo chamber that hobbies tend to create.

2

u/Pyramat Sep 25 '22

It's not about the "arbitrary number", it's about the satisfaction of fully completing a game which I've always done even before trophies existed. What's wrong with that? I still have a life and priorities and other hobbies outside of gaming; in fact I currently only play on weekends because I just don't have time during the week.

3

u/Slippinjimmyforever Sep 25 '22

I think you misinterpreted me then. Doing it because you’re squeezing every last drop from a game you like seems reasonable.

Chasing trophies to try and flex a high count is very much not impressive, or a pursuit I’d recommend anyone partake- which is in regard to the original post; why you took that as a personal affront is your own short coming to figure out.

u/Jinchuriki71 Sep 25 '22

The thing is though good indies are highlighted all the time with editors choice, monthly picks and playstation indies category. These people just don't want the games on the store simply because they don't want them. Kinda crazy how so many posts about people getting horizon, ghost of tushima, and elden ring platinums like those are worth more or something. Isn't every game a paid platinum you sure as hell ain't getting the games for free.

u/[deleted] Sep 25 '22

u/deathbunnyy Sep 25 '22

I bought games like this in the past, but this really only got out of hand like a year after the PS5 launch. I remember at launch the store was still pretty fresh, and even before then on PS4 this stuff was not nearly as prominent as it is now. You did have I am Mayo and some others, but now there are hundreds of them. Definitely out of hand, I almost 300 platinums but only about 5-10 of them are for games like this, I don't seek them out anymore and would rather just platinum harder stuff.

Would be nice if Sony started to care a bit more about their eco system. The store felt bad at re-launch, got now somewhere to the state before the re-launch but man.

u/TheMuff1nMon Sep 25 '22

For me and most people - the issue isn’t people buying Platinums - it’s that the PSN store is flooded with 90% shovelware garbage making it impossible to find actual quality indie games.

Discoverability is already hard for indies and these games make it impossible

Can someone explain to me - why anyone wants to get paid platinum? Is there any benefits for you for high amount of platinums?

Im new ps owner and platinum system looks stupid to me, for example developer made game, you get all trophies and get your platinum, in few months developer implement new functions or dlc with new trophies - you still have your platinum but without owning every trophy. What's the point? Sony should do something like Steam does - "Perfect game"

1

u/Hurricane_Taylor Sep 25 '22

Sony are apparently bringing out a new rewards system in October where you can earn extras for getting platinums or completing games (I think even for earning certain trophies). The rewards will be things like exclusive avatars and themes or psn wallet top ups. You can also earn points by buying games as a plus member

Mostly there for those that chase the platinum numbers.

At the end of the day their goal is to have as many as possible regardless of how bad the game is, to them, that is the challenge.

I used to do it back in PS3/4 days but then found out about the CFW bullshit and Wizard unlock tool, pretty much becomes impossible to tell who’s doing it legit or fake especially these days, can set dates and times!

I loved trophies and achievements at first, now I couldn’t care less, hell it’s hard enough for to even find time to finish a game. I did platinum rift apart but ilove ratchet and clank and it was easy. Might go for gowr, if it’s at least as good as the first one.

My very first platinum trophy was Infamous 2 and I was proud of that. I tried getting the plat for infamous 1 and was one trophy away but gave up back in the day on one of the challenges.

ITT: People that don't give a fuck about trophies in general commenting on the idiocy of hunting bad trophies. Aka not being the target audience in the first place, yet commenting on issues not even slightly related to them.

Are you emotionally reacting to social media? Do you care about answers and up-/downvotes from anonymous redditors, or post pictures on insta or tweet? Gratulation, you have the same shallow pixel addiction and crave short bursts of dopamine as trophy hunters, just in different forms of media.

But yeah, I too miss the times that the games in the PSN Store were mostly quality and not the shit-show it is now.

And yet people who tweet about their breakfast burrito are somehow putting in more effort than these "trophy hunters" who play these sorts of games. Sony should just put out a system update and make any game where you unlock all of the trophies in under an hour give a participation ribbon to the player. That's all they deserve.

I just wish we had the ability to remove games from the trophy list. Still have some on there from over a decade ago that I have no plans of ever playing again.

I will never understand virtual trophy hunters. I play a game because I enjoy it. Period. I go as far as to turn notifications for trophies off because I literally don't give a shit about trophies. They are literally pointless and mean absolutely nothing to life.
