I just hit 3,000 trophies this past week. Most of my friends are way below that, and several are way beyond it. Of course, it means nothing, but I’ve enjoyed the journey thus far. 10 of those 3,000 are platinums, representing exactly .33% of all of them! (Roughly 80% or bronze, 15% silver and 5% gold, pretty even) Anyways, I thought I’d break down those 10 platinums as I search for #11 (Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor
- Lego: Pirates Of The Caribbean
- Resident Evil 5
- Uncharted 2
- Uncharted 3
- The Walking Dead: Season One
- Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward
It’s not the most impressive list, particularly since The Walking Dead just required you to finish it for a plat (by comparison, the second season had no platinum.) I’m proud of all three Uncharted games, as beating each on Crushing was a challenge…in particular that first one. Speaking of difficulty levels, Resogun, Guacamelee! and Resident Evil 5 all provided quite a rough time on the hardest level.
I still prefer trophies to achievement points for this very reason. 3,000 trophies but only 10 platinums? It represents the elite and I remember getting each of those. While trophies launched after the PS3, it’s still been six years since they’ve launched and now on three platforms, they’re rolling in faster than ever! (PS+ doesn’t hurt)(Neither does GameFly)
That means I’m averaging 500 trophies a year, more or less, 10/week. Figure, 5,000 sometime in 2018? I hope so!
