Now let's look back at the most played games in 2012. There weren't many guesses, but I'm glad no one came even close to the answer.

2012 was Vita's launch year and it went BIG, at least in our league. Which Vita game has been played by almost any Vita owner? Now you might have guessed correctly.

Top 3 spots are Vita games, which I find to be remarkable.

I contemplated whether it could be Vita related, but I threw out the possibility simply because of the userbase ratio.  It's mind boggling that anything Vita did better than PS3.  I guess that says a lot about our group's tendencies to get stuff just for trophy hunting.

What strikes me the most from your post is that you find crushing the easiest of the series. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

Hats off to you if you did it legit, but it's definitely the most crushing difficulty of the series imo

Yeah if you check my trophies you can see I got the crushing trophy on my first playthrough. No infinite ammo cheats. Was kind of dissapointed they allowed those cheats. Minimizes the platinum a bit. That would have made it a sinch with the one shot pistol, grenade or rocket launcher w/ auto aim...

I did find Uncharted 4 crushing easy, with the exception of 3-4 checkpoints. The first stealth area in the jungle where the enemy comments about seeing movement in the bushes, 2nd was inside the building where you try to push past the door blockade and get ambushed, and that chapter 20 checkpoint. Good lord that first chapter 20 checkpoint took at least 2-3 hours of tries. And the very last checkpoint on the final chapter I had quite a few deaths until I got the timing down.

Perhaps I found it mostly easy due to all my gaming experience with the Uncharted series. Originally I really struggled with crushing difficulty on Uncharted 1 when the game first came out. By the time I played it again when trophies were patched in I was surprised to find I had a much easier time. Knowing what to expect certainly helped.  Uncharted 2 & 3 had a few hard parts as well: the train, final boss on 2 without taking advantage of the glitch, and fire demons in 3.

Most recently when I played the Uncharted Collection on crushing I breezed through all of them with very few deaths that weren't intentional for grinding out weapon trophies. Need to still try the grounded mode on those. Heard its not bad.

I guess your right about Uncharted 4 being the hardest. When I compare playing Uncharted 4 to replaying the Uncharted Collection, Uncharted 4 was harder because those 4 checkpoints gave me a harder time than anything while replaying 1-3. I guess I was just surprised at how easy the rest of Uncharted 4 was. If I compare my first Uncharted 4 playthrough to my first Uncharted 1 crushing playthough then Uncharted 1 gave me hardest time. For me I think Uncharted 2 was also more difficult than Uncharted 4 the first time.

Competition is fierce right now. Woodpints...are you even human? I'm envisioning a cyborg design to kick as at trophy hunting. :D

Yeah I thought for sure I was going to be on top of the busiest members leaderboard this week after playing those Arcade classics.

This week should be much slower with the witcher expansion out and its bronze trophy list. :(

Granted it was my first playthrough, I found the original Uncharted to be more difficult on Hard than on Crushing, although there were definitely a few troublesome spots. I don't remember Crushing being all too bad on UC2 or 3, though, and I can't comment on UC4, since I haven't done it yet. I will contest that UC4 is certainly more challenging than the other ones, in general, as enemies will actually move around to flank you, making it harder to stay in cover in one spot, which was something possible in the other games.

Haven't done my crushing on UC4 yet but the bluerooom in two and the church in one....Ifind it hard to believe it can be harder, especially with modifiers.

Yeah, I was not looking forward to a crushing run on Uncharted 4 (I didn't realize you could have selected it initially or I would have done it then). Then I find out you can use the modifiers and infinite weapons and I find it laughable. There's also a glitch to do the speed run. Sigh.

I think the glitch to do the speedrun/Crushing run by only playing the prologue/epilogue was fixed, as people have reported it not working on the latest patch. That means digital owners will have to do it legit, which isn't too hard with the modifiers.



I'd like to join



Quite a few people popping several platinum's last week :D
