PlayStation 3: These Are The Top 10 Platinum Trophies

By: Zach Walton - March 4, 2012

Ah yes, the platinum trophy, the reward gamers earn when they obtain every other trophy (achievement) in a PlayStation 3 game. I only have one platinum trophy, so I am obviously either a bad gamer or a lazy gamer – for my pride, I’m going with the latter. Some gamers, however, have obtained a lot of platinum trophies and this list is for them.

Sony has revealed on the PlayStation blog the top ten platinum trophies that gamers earned since the reward system was implemented in 2008. The results are somewhat surprising. The list from the most earned platinum to the tenth earned platinum are as follows:

1. Assassin’s Creed II
2. Modern Warfare 2
3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
4. God of War 3
5. Resident Evil 5
6. inFamous
7. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
8. God of War (GoW HD Collection)
9. Borderlands
10. Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (The Sly Collection)

The PlayStation blog also points out a few things that are common among the games on this. The first is that all of the game on this list are good. Now, you may not think they are very good, but rest assured, everybody else does. As the blog points out, the average metacritic score for the above games is an 89. While critical reception doesn’t automatically mean the game is good or not, it serves as a good indicator.

The major common theme is that the majority of these games are single-player affairs. Even a game like Borderlands that focuses on four-player co-op action has trophies that can be obtained through a single-player run. The same goes for Modern Warfare 2 where most of its trophies are obtained through the campaign.

Finally, these games are pretty old. The prices have dropped enough now so that everybody can get in on these games. As the blog points out, when newer games drop down in price, expect to see more recent games populate this list.

All this makes me want to attempt the platinum in God of War again. I just have one trophy left – beating the game in less than five hours.

Oh, if you were wondering what game I had a platinum trophy in, it’s Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. Despite owning all of these games, I’m pretty lazy when it comes to getting achievements or trophies.

Do you have any of these platinum trophies? Are you going to attempt to obtain any of the platinum trophies in these games now? Let us know in the comments.
