I got the platinum the other day, one of the easier ones to get. Great game.

I definitely wouldn't say it is one of the easiest to get considering you have to play like 50 hours to do it. There are tons of platinum's that you can get in an hour or two.

My Name is Mayo 1 and 2 will net you a couple of easy plays. GOT is a long haul, in my opinion.

Well, sure. Iím not talking about those Telltalle games or smaller games. But it sure was the easiest Platinum Iíve gotten for a game of this scope. They could have easily made trophies requiring you to find every single record, cricket, dye variant, etc. Or to headshot 100 guys with each bow. The time commitment really didnít factor into it for me. I did have to look up a few things, and spent a few hours ďwrapping upĒ, but it was all manageable.

yah, I rate the easiness of platinum by how much clean-up time I need after beating it. Got this in I think 2 extra nights. no extra playthru, no hard difficulty, no multiplayer requirements.

I'm wrapping up myself before finishing the main story. I only need to track down a few more items for the bigger collection trophy (shrines, bamboo, crickets, etc.). This is the best kind of Platinum to shoot for because of what redbill said. Sure it's a time sink, but everything is pretty manageable and even doable without looking things up online. There are no excruciatingly brutal trophies to worry about, like clear a Mongol camp without taking a hit, or clear a camp only using stealth kills, or beat a Strawhat without using a finishing move, etc.

Awesome Crossover Costumes that you can unlock via Multiplayer until 1/15/21!

Sadly, I hear the skins don't transfer over to Single-Player mode.

So I finally wrapped this up last week. I was thinking this would be neck and neck with Miles Morales for my GOTY, but Tsushima pulled ahead when the Taka storyline played out.

So after largely giving up achievement/trophy hunting on the PS4/XBO, this became my 6th Platinum ever, which joined Miles Morales and Astro all in the last month. lol
So after that I noticed there was a New Game+ trophy just for completing the game again. It's ultra rare sitting at .8% of people earning it. I went for it. Played through the entire story a second time. They added an extra level to all armor and weapons to unlock. Upgraded my favorite armor, but that's about all I could earn without grinding side missions.

I haven't looked at my total playtime, but it's definitely GOTY for me.

I wish this game would go on sale again. I finally finished the last of my PS4 backlog this past weekend and wanted to trade in a bunch of games and pick this up. I figured when it was being sold for 39.99 everywhere in November/December that would be the standard price with a sale price of 30 dollars popping up around now. Gamestop and most others are holding steady at 60. I wonder how long it will be before it becomes a "PlayStation Hits" game?

Re: Ghost of Tsushima (PS4; 7/17/20)

Iíve been playing steadily since the holidays and am about 2/3 through.

Itís gorgeous as everyone has said (and I just got a new TV), and I grew up on samurai movies so I like feeling like Iím in one. Iím generally bad at multi-button combos and I got killed regularly in the beginning, but Iíve figured out the stances and am usually able to hit enough buttons to do damage.

I like the story and how it has some moral ambiguity to it. More than once Iíve wondered whether my deciding to go off and kill someone based on hearsay is really the best course of action.

Would like to see DLC that takes the action to the mainland.

I would imagine they would save that for a sequel.

Without making a 'Spoiler"....to those who have finished it....it's pretty obvious of 1-2 ways the next Ghost will go....the question will be....will we get Jin or another Jin along with new or old Friends.....i also have a feeling that Tomoe, the pupil of Sensei might be a prominant player.
