Forums - Gaming Discussion - I am devastated (again)

It looks like I won't 100% Skyrim yet again. The Deadric artifacts trophy should have popped by now. I've had all the items in my possession at one point, although not all at the same time.
The amount of glitched quests is starting to pile up in the misc section as well, turn off and ignore. Too bad you can't simply delete them.

That was what the game RAGE did to me. I completed all the races and vehicle battles post-story, some of which were hard as all hell, only to find out that certain collectibles can’t be accessed after certain points in the story, so I couldn’t get either the collectives or 100% trophy unless I did it all again. I literally said fuck that, and destroyed the disc. 82% forever.

Haha class. I buy all digital now so those days are over

So, given this is the second time this has happened to you with the same game, I'm guessing it doesn't bother you too much? I haven't played a Bethesda developed game, or anything running on one of their engines, since Fallout 3 drove me to the edge of madness. The idea being, to not willfully subject myself to something that will almost certainly enrage me repeatedly.

Feel sorry for you bro, platinum in Rockstar games are always a pain in the ass. Doing all the collectiables in GTA V made me quit the platinum of the game, just too annoying to do imo. And I am a person who usually platinums all games that I play (even time-consuming ones like The Witcher 3 or Dark Souls) so you got my respect for getting the platinum in GTA V. I always check if there are missable trophies before I start a game, you should do that too in the future to avoid this. To be honest I can't understand why developers put trophies like these in the game...

That's why you shouldn't care about trophies or whatever... the satisfaction from playing, or potentially completing a game should come from you know, playing or potentially completing the game, not the system telling you you got a platinum trophy and giving you a pat in the back.

Seriously never understood the appeal of universal achievements. But, to each their own I guess.

100% agree with you on this.  Gaming is a hobby meant for enjoyments sake.  Achievement/Trophy hunters turn it into a job and seek validation from the publisher and platform to tell them whether or not they got maximum enjoyment out of a game.  Say "John Smith" and I buy the same game, and I play through the campaign and enjoy it in my normal fashion, but John Smith makes sure to kill 100 enemies with a baseball bat, 100 with an umbrella, and 100 with a chainsaw because the game tells him he will get a "trophy" for doing so.  Does that mean John Smith got more of his money's worth out of the game?  No.  If the game is good, and I enjoyed it, then I got my money's worth already.  I don't need to do an arbitrary collect-a-thon etc. to tell me it was worth my time.  My gaming time is limited as it is.  Once I've finished a game's story, I have time to move onto enjoying the next game.  If I buy a basketball game and win the NBA Finals with my favorite franchise, that's rewarding.  Not playing only as a team that the publisher has tied into an "achievement" because they say I need to score 50 points, 20 rebounds, and 20 assists with LeBron James.

It's nice to have, especially for VR games :) RE7 plat trophy all in VR was very satisfying. But I expect it with Bethesda games, and indeed still the same old glitches. It's also glitches that saved me from broken quests, glitching through castle Volikhar's bugged gate for the Dawnguard DLC for example. The whole DLC would have been inaccessible...

I'm currently aiming for the gold trophies on GTS, something to do instead of aimlessly running circles. Let's be real, I'll never get invited to race with the top 24 in one of the special events. Especially since most of my racing is done on an old tv with ds4 and no sound while Micky house club house is blaring next to me for my kids.

For racing games I'll go further than any other games. I especially hate the collect em all trophies. That's also one of the ones I didn't get for GT5, have 1000 cars or so nonsense. Which saved me from putting myself through the 2 24h endurance races or beating my head on the few license tests I couldn't get gold on, or that infuriating Vettel challenge. The collect em all trophy preserved my sanity!



Turns out I never did the monty chunks pay phone missions which brought me up to 97.5%. And I actually did all the joey and luigi missions first time around. So it was that clown Donald love who cost me. I remember thinking I'd done a lot of his and wanted to get back to the others but was sleepy and auto piloted myself over to him and started up his last mission. Oh so close.

Anyway making good progress on my second play through.

Cheers man. Yeah I really need to Google it before trying to platinum games in future. 

 

Update: currently retrying the level 12 paramedic. I can't believe I'm back trying this again. Couldn't do it after 90mins of trying and unlike last time I'm using the health cheat. It's just so hard to keep my concentration for so long.

The one where you as Franklin buy the Taxi Company and after that you have to wait for a call and do a side mission of driving someone to his destination. Never got the call, only after jumping through some hoops ibdid manage to receive the call and do the damn mission... 

I had this same issue.  But, as I recall, I looked up the solution online pretty quickly, so I didn't waste too much time with it. 



I think you'd be better off to 100% something new than play that whole game again just for a couple of trophies.
