Trophy hunting can turn an already time consuming hobby into an expensive one. That’s why many gaming enthusiasts wind up using subscription services rather than buying each title individually in order to lower how much they spend per month. One particular option for PS4 owners is PlayStation Now, Sony’s own rental service that allows subscribers to stream a variety of titles ranging from PS2 classics to current releases.
With that in mind, here are the 10 easiest platinum trophies you can get on PlayStation Now.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion
Not only is Pirates of the Enchiridion one of the better Adventure Time adaptations, it also only takes about a dozen hours to 100 percent the enjoyable turn-based role-playing game. While players will have to grind each character to the max level of 10, none of the trophies are particularly time consuming or annoying to unlock. Overall, it’s a fun trip through the land of Ooo and one well worth partaking.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Ben 10
This 3D brawler is incredibly dull and uninspired, but if you’re willing to put up with the monotony, you’ll find a relatively easy platinum trophy to be had. As far as tricky trophies go, there are some light speedrunning challenges where players will have to finish stages in 15 minutes, and a requirement to defeat some bosses without taking damage. Thankfully, the relaxed difficulty of Ben 10 keeps it from becoming frustrating and all of the levels will only take a few hours to beat.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Cars: Race-O-Rama
While it’s certainly not a looker, Cars: Race-O-Rama is a decent enough racing game with many straightforward trophies to unlock. The only real difficult part can be the Guido race segments, but this can be mitigated by going into Arcade Mode and choosing Luigi as your car in order to avoid spinning out. Minor frustrations aside, it will only take about 10 hours to get a shiny new platinum.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Grim Fandango Remastered
Now this one is truly a treat. Grim Fandango is one of the best adventure games ever made and it’s quite easy to platinum as long as you are using a guide. Just follow along with a walkthrough to make sure you don’t miss anything, and enjoy the incredible undead voyage that Manny Calavera goes on. The remastered version also features some great updated vehicles and an updated control scheme that make the point-and-click adventure easy to play on consoles. Just keep in mind that the tank controls negate one of the trophies.
If you’ve already played the game before on PC, I suggest going through this time with developer commentary enabled. It’s a great look into how it was made, and you’ll learn plenty about Tim Schafer’s development process.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi
Have you ever wanted to date Japanese historical figures in 1860s Japan? Well, if you do, then Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi is the perfect game. You’ll be glad to know that you can quickly skip past all the dialogue to obtain the platinum trophy in a few hours. This dating game is a cool piece of historical fiction, so chances are that you will learn a thing or two while romancing hunks like Okita Sōji and Saitō Hajime.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Magus
This third-person shooter is one of the worst games released on PlayStation 3 (rivaling the likes of the Mickey Rourke starring first-person shooter, Rogue Warrior), but thankfully only takes about four hours to platinum. While you’ll have to suffer through the repetitive gameplay and make sure you kill enough enemies in each level, you also get to experience one of the most hilariously bad endings in all of gaming. So, it really evens out at the end of the day and almost reaches “so bad it’s enjoyable” territory.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
Most adventure games are easy platinums and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is no different. However, it is quite the lengthy title. It will take over 20 hours to complete and has a number of missable trophies. It does tell an interesting story, which lessens the blow and using a guide will make sure that you don’t miss a single trophy.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – The Wolf Among Us
Telltale Games’ adventure games became notorious for their easy platinum trophies, and The Wolf Among Us is actually the only one fully available on PlayStation Now (the first episodes of Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones are also available) currently. Thankfully, it’s the best narrative-driven title that the studio ever put out, and the trophy list just requires players to replay a few chapters in order to see other choices play out. It’s a very straightforward title, so enjoy the ride.
An adaptation of the comic Fables, The Wolf Among Us stars a who’s who of of the fairy tale world as everyone from the “big bad wolf” to Beauty and the Beast are represented throughout. Seeing these iconic characters in a new light all over New York City never fails to be entertaining in addition the engrossing murder mystery.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Toy Story Mania!
Another terrible game, but one that isn’t a chore at all to play. Toy Story Mania! is a selection of different shooting galleries that feature characters and themes from the film franchise. It’s a cute enough title, but there is very little complexity to the levels or trophies. Just be sure to have two controllers as there is one multiplayer trophy to get. As it was originally a Nintendo Wii title, this also supports the PlayStation Motion controller.
10 easiest platinum trophies on PlayStation Now – Until Dawn
Until Dawn is one of PS4’s finest horror games and it’s also one of the easiest platinum trophies as well. As long as you consult a guide to make sure you don’t miss any collectibles and make some good saves, you can unlock all of the endings in just over a dozen hours or so. It’s well worth playing anyhow, as Supermassive Games’ well-produced take on horror is a fun tribute to slasher flicks.
