1200 Platinum Trophies!!!

Banned
Just saw this article over on Eurogamer about a bloke who had just over 1200 platinum trophies!

Fair play to the guy as it looks like he's had to play pretty much every game that supports trophies, so there's a hell of a lot of **** in there! If it's his passion and what he wants to do with his time, again fair play.

But on the flip side, some of his attitude is what makes me find the big trophy hunters to be utter cock wobbles! The whole "weak and no spirit" because you don't play a shed load of utter crap games I find pretty sad and pathetic.

He says he works and has a family and social life, how??? Honestly how?? I have an understanding other half and a reasonable amount of time on my hands, but no way could I cram that all in every day!

However Sony not recognising his 'achievement'

Anyway, I'll shut up rambling and open it up to the floor for thoughts and opinions

Thats a lot of games to platinum, id much rather play one good game and enjoy over playing a crap game just for the achievement/trophys though

Starting your own company, learn a new language or something. I like gaming as much as everyone but it should be a small part of your life and when you want to relax. Also how many of those games did he actually enjoy? I play games for fun not treat it as a checklist or job.



​Starting a company that then goes down the pan causing you to lose your wife and house.. Nah I'd rather play it safe and get a platinum trophy..

Couldn't agree more. If it's a game I really like and enjoy, I will try for the platinum if I can. But won't go out of my way to play games I don't really want to

Blimey he must be pretty angry due to playing all the dire games he has had to play to get that. It would turn playing games into a chore, so whats the point....
Edited by: "Arcturas" 4th May

I read this too, can I couldnt help but think he was fishing for some sort of free stuff from Sony.. Also some of his comments make him sound like a right tool, and that he doesn't enjoy gaming at all and has himself a serious problem..

I think he would be better playing less games and spending time with his boy..

That's the thing I really struggle to comprehend about this guy. How is he finding the time, it just doesn't add up to me.

I used to follow this trophy hunter on Twitter, he followed me for some reason so I followed back, he's quite similar, plays a lot of games and really rattles through them. But also claims to work a lot and also be such a family man.

These people either don't sleep, or they are neglecting major parts of their lives

I know a few younger guys who are happy sitting up all night and sleeping most of the day playing online shooters.. and I mean fair enough if they are happy with that, but I see there seriously fine girlfriends going to bed all alone and unhappy! and here I am winking at the wife while she is begging me to stay up playing games

That's a plat a day for over 3 years. Either his wife's an avid gamer too or the milkman is squaring her away every morning

Funny, I have 1201 accounts, I platted My Name is Mayo on each of them. Only took me around 400 hours

I wonder how he doesn't appear in the leader board, cheating perhaps? That other fella is currently top on 1225.

They're both unofficial tracking sites and inclusion is optional.

Puts my 1 platinum to shame!

I have zero platinums and proud (owned every playstation so far)... Must be a strong feeling of satisfaction to prefer it over the feeling of fun from playing decent games, or getting out and about.

Must not be getting that satisfaction elsewhere.... Off the record quote - "it's better than sex"...

On PS3 you could download certain game saves which had all trophies. All you had to do was load the game up and they would all ping up.
You can tell if the have done this by the time stamps of the trophies.

I have 47, and they're all MLG Pro Gamer super duper hard platinums that n00bz like you could never earn.

Good for you!

I would offer a slight revision to one of your comments though and suggest that gaming should be as much a part of a person's life as they want it to be, so long as they're not harming themselves or anyone else.

My platinum trophies mark which games I've loved enough to play to absolute competition. To me they signify how much I like a game, not how good I am at PlayStation.

I know that isn't the same for everyone though.

Fair play to the guy, it's a massive achievement whether it was done by grinding or for the love.

True. Platinums were introduced in 2008 so it is quite possible it was one every three days but yeah it is a lot.

Hasn't played Battlefield. Trophy hunters have no fun. I checked this recently when thought I had enough to compete, gave up after realising I'm way behind, plus I don't play panzy games.

damn, i only have 206

I'd rather stick to games I find fun, I don't chase trophies I just enjoy whatever game until I'm bored. So only 4 Platinum's for me, the best one was Driveclub. Filling the void until Gran Turismo appears.

Does seem to be rumours the account was/is being used by multiple people. But he claims the site owner just doesn't like him and banned him...

I guess if you want to be a lowlife who does nothing but play videogames all day then go right ahead and follow his lead.
