After putting in a lot of time to not only complete, but obtain the elusive platinum trophy for the impressive action survival game Days Gone, I felt pretty satisfied with my experience. You know the feeling, when you’ve finished a game but still have those few remaining “clean-up” trophies you need to get to see that platinum pop? Sometimes it’s as simple as starting a new playthrough. Other times it’s drifting in a circle on your motorcycle to accumulate 10 minutes of drift. (wink wink) Whether those final trophies prior to plat are simple or simply time consuming, the end result is the same, a euphoric bliss that comes from earning your platinum trophy.
Usually that’s enough. You take your final accolade and tally up your profile rank. So, imagine my surprise when a few days later, I receive this seemingly random email from Sony PlayStation. The email subject line reads “Surviving In A Relentless World Has Never Looked So Easy”. The body of the email goes on to say congrats on your platinum trophy, here, enjoy this custom theme featuring Days Gone characters. How great is that! …. Or is this something that everyone already knows about, and it’s just been that long since I platinum’d a game??
Regardless, the premise is a good one. Offering up a little something extra and special for your follow-through effort of achieving the platinum in a game. As far as I can tell, it’s not a theme that you can hop on the PS store and purchase. It can only be earned via the platinum trophy, and that’s pretty cool to me.
I used to be an avid trophy hunter in years past, I’ve since moved on to playing games for fun. I don’t stress about the insane or time-consuming trophies that have to be completed for the platinum. Every now and then, a game comes along that’s down right fun and the platinum almost comes naturally, without any hunting involved. Then to receive a custom theme to compliment your triumph, is all the more fun. And that’s what gaming is all about in the first place.
