Trophies and Achievements are one of this generation's most significant new features, and one that will likely endure for quite a while.

Some don't care at all but others are definite Trophy fiends. And it's no secret that a great many Trophies are extremely difficult to obtain; they may take a huge amount of time, or a huge amount of skill…or, more often than not, both.

So of all the games you've played over the past five years, which Trophies/Achievements do you most treasure? Which are the ones that made you go, "Damn, I can't believe I actually got it!" Personally, I've never gotten into the whole Trophy craze, primarily because I have a small pet peeve when it comes to such forms of bite-size instant gratification. There's just something about these Trophies that makes me feel a little too much like a subject in a Pavlov experiment…

But even so, when it comes to games that really grab me, I have to admit I've glanced at the Trophy lists, just to see what I might have to do to obtain that always-elusive Platinum. See, I don't have any (although I would if there were Plats awarded only for single-player accomplishments), and I keep wondering if I'll ever get one. Maybe I'll get the one for Journey ; it doesn't seem too tough. Or, if I decide to put in enough time, the Platinum for FFXIII-2. But I doubt it. Still, I know I have a few pretty cool Trophies; what are yours?

In short, which ones do you brag about?

wow you have both?! i just beat dark souls the other day, and thought i might be somewhat close to the plat, 48%… and yea there's no way i can get the plat after seeing what else i need to do… damn you're impressive 😉
i don't have any plats but I would definitely be the most proud of demon souls or dark souls

I'd have to actually look at my Trophy list to decide on that one.

Final Fantasy XIII & XIII-2… It's Final Fantasy has to be done… Other than that I'm pretty content at level 14 with 1'500 trophies. I think eventualkly though it loses it's novelty. I'm double anyone on my friends list for trophies at the moment, maybe I just need more competition XD

FFXIII was my first platinum. It was also one of the easiest on my list. It rewards grinders. Not skill. If you can bash the skull of a big Adamantoise, or whatever the toughest one is, over and over with good time, you'll get it in no time… *yawn*

I only have three platinum trophies so far: Assassin's Creed II, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and God of War: Chains of Olympus. I'm proud of all of them, but the one I'll be proudest of is one that I'm still working on. The platinum trophy for Heavy Rain. I just need to see all the endings and I have it. Now to get my copy of the game back from my friend (or probably just buy a new one).

Heavy Rain, definately a game that earns the right to be platinumed.

Same here too. I'm only at level 9 w/ about 520 trophies & no plats(but I don't really care).

Geobaldi,
How do you delete your trophies????

I've got lots of games that I want to rid out of my trophy list, such as demos I didn't like that actually gave me 1 or 2 trophies. Or since I'm a collector, I also play a sample of every game that I buy & I've gotten 1 or 2 trophies that way too. But if I decide I don't like the game, then it will forever sit on the shelf in my collection.

So my trophy list looks like a bunch of games that I've started, but always wimped out on.

Anyway, I just want my trophy list to really show for just those games I felt were worth playing.

I don't even remember what my level is… I think 11? If I didn't have PS+ My trophies would never be updated to my profile lol.

I have no platinums and the games that are near completion are only like that because they are kickass games, and I played then a ton.

Yeah, the VR missions are definitely the hardest part, but they seemed alot harder in the ps2 version.

Still very hard though. Good luck 🙂

I don't know if I am proud or ashamed of my FF-XIII platinum. It did give me an immense feeling of satisfaction when I got it but in the end I don't think it was worth it….those are countless hours of farming turtles that I will never get back.

Only proof I have is my word, but I'm proud of beating Njnja Gaiden for Xbox on very hard as well as being able to beat almost any fighting game on the hardest difficulty. I found it very strange that on very easy in SFIV I would get my ass handed to me. When I changed to very hard I was God. I guess it's the timing. Seriously, it's one of the weirdest things I've experienced as a gamer. Oh, MGS2 beaten thoroughly on PS2 and 100% in every GT game so far (still working on 5). The sad thing is that I could probably do none of this anymore. Don't really have the time to now. Damn growing up and aging *grumble grumble*.

If you play them on the hardest difficulty, what were you doing on very easy? 😛

It is a fact that Capcom has had a history of having their difficulty levels glitched. I believe I recall a specific version of Street Fighter II on the SNES that was more difficult on "Very Easy" than "Very Hard".

I love trophies!

My proudest trophy.. FFXIII… i donno how many turtles i farmed…, but i did it. 110 hours.. i was so proud of myself.

i also got the plat for Dragon Age: Origin, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas.
All took me about 100 hours to get the plats…. it was fun to do though.. love those games.. except the bugs in FO3 NV drove me nuts

Assassin's creed 2, was actually not that difficult to plat… a lot easier than brotherhood and revelation.. as I don't do multiplayer..

resident evil 5 was kinda hard to get…

the easiest one i got was probably GOW Chain of Olympus.. must of died 1000 times though.. ready to throw my controller..

and last but not least. if anyone can believe.. harry potter lego 1-4. played w/ a friend until we found all the people in the game!

I AM HOPING TO get the plat for FFXIII-2.. not sure if i got the patience this time around..

I have I think 12 platinums, None of them were particularly hard to get though. I don't go out of my way to get the extremely hard or near impossible trophies.

Although I don't care about trophies in the least, if I had to pick some that I do have as my proudest one would be getting the Golden God trophy for finishing 100% of Super Meat Boy.

Probably my Fallout 3 Platinum. Dealing with all the freezings and still being sane after experiencing such horror, I would have to say it was the best trophy I ever gotten.

totally feel you.. new vegas was even worst in the freezing.. i had to quit out to the xmb, and back into the game every time I go into a place w/ a lot of people. but managed to plat the 2 games. sure was frustrating

Mirror's Edge, Assassin's Creed 2 and Revelations. Uncharted 1 and 2. Dragon Age Origins, Duke Nukem Forever, God of War 3, Killzone 3, Borderlands(that game was so long). Heavy Rain, Resident Evil 5, Enslaved, Dead Space. All of these games I have platinums in.

Reason behind so many trophies is because, I don't like a game unfinished. If I haven't done everything in the game then I shouldn't get rid of the game space on my HDD.

The ones I'm proud of aren't necessarily the time sink ones, but the ones that took a whole lot of skill. I have 70 plats at the moment, but the ones I'm most proud of are:

Vanquish: The challenges in this game are insane. This game is held in high regards as being one of the hardest to plat.

Wipeout HD: The Beat Zico trophy and Zone Zeuss trophies were quite hard to beat. In some ways I had more trouble with this than Wipeout, but I'm still unsure as to which was harder or not.

Street Fighter 4: The trials in this game were pretty hard. It took quite precise timing to pull them off and there are numerous amounts of them as well.

Mirror's Edge: The time trials and speedruns were difficult, but rewarding. Finding different kinds of jumps you could pull off to shave some seconds was really rewarding.

I do have some RPG plats that took a whole lot of time, like FFXIII, both Fallouts, both Souls games, but those ones were mostly not about skill and just about grinding so I'm not particularly "proud" of them.

Oblivion doesn't have trophies. If it did, I'd probably have a platinum in it.

I'm equally ambivalent to all of my trophies.

I'm probably most proud that I have all of the trophies in AC2 but one, but have no need to get that trophy just so I'd have another platinum. I tried for it, but it wasn't worth doing the same thing again and again ad nauseam until I got lucky.

I just platinumed FF13-2 yesterday, with one hit 99999 damage, 160 fragment, max out all roles and ability, all 100% map fragment, all monster bestiary fragment, 7777 coin fragment, earn 10000 casino coins, all 8 paradox endings and secret ending, beat final boss with 5 stars, beat Raspatil on normal mode, beat Ochu, Immortal, Long Gui and Yomi, 100 continuous great rate on Mog Clock, 10000 chocobo steps…a hell lot of work.

other plat trophies I got: ICO/SOTC HD version, MGS2/3/Peace Walker HD version, Heavy Rain, GOW1/2 HD combo, GOW3, Dante's Inferno, I am considering plat Uncharted 2 and 3 but not sure about the online part tho…..

Beside that, with all the platinum trophies I got, I would say the Platinum trophy of Demon's Souls are the most time consuming and hard earned, I spent 200 hours + on platinum it especially with the obtain all special weapon trophie, some material are just too rare to obtain and I have to farm endless hours to get it…. so yea I will say FF13-2 and Demon's Platinum trophy are the proudest ones I got, just based on the massive amount of hours you need to invest in.

For me it would have to be my Uncharted 2 plat because it was my first platnium trophy, and my Dead Space 2 plat, cause beating that game on hard core was one of the most stressful moments in gaming I have ever had.

For me its probably the "play" trophy from Little big Planet. The one that you have to complete all levels without dying with the exception of the levels that don't end until you die.

A few levels seemed damn near impossible but I eventually got it.

The LBP platinum is definitely one to be proud of Especially because you actually need the willing help from other people which makes it a difficult one to get.

I hear ya. Took some real discipline to ace the bunker level and the boss level. I only need 3 more people to heart me as an author to get the "Create" which is also my last one for the plat.
