50 Easiest PS4 Platinum Trophies You Should Collect

Want to impress your friends but don't have the time?

Hellblade PS4

31. Lara Croft Go

Easiness: 8/10
Time required: 3 hours

I haven’t personally played Lara Croft Go, but it looks like it could be a simple and straightforward game set in the Tomb Raider universe.

The playlist above guides you through all the collectibles you need for a plat, which will definitely give you your money’s worth – I’ve seen this game retailing for relative pennies.

 

32. Hitman Go

Easiness: 8/10
Time required: 3 hours

Same as above but with a bald bloke: just delete and replace as necessary. Hitman GO is also very cheap and all of its trophies are easy to complete with research, plus it’s generally quite fun.

 

33. Accounting+ (VR Only)

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 1 hour

Our first VR entry on this list is also one of the weirdest. Coming from one half of the minds behind Rick & Morty, that shouldn’t really be much of a surprise, but what should be a surprise is just how easy it is to get the platinum for Accounting+.

You can breeze through the game itself in between half an hour and an hour and maybe add an extra fifteen if you’re constantly referring to a guide. One of the trophies asks you to knock relentlessly on a door until it opens and another needs you to hold onto a brick for ages – that’s about the tone all of the trophies have.

It’s irreverent and just very silly, but is a good way to introduce some players to VR.

 

34. Job Simulator VR

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 2-5 hours

Another off the wall VR title, Job Simulator VR wants to replicate the mundanity of real-life office work with a helpful dash of absurdity. It’s a short experience coming in at a couple of hours, but if you’re going to be looking at inflating your trophy haul, you may as well make it brief and pretend to be a chef while you’re at it.

A lot of hallowed pings of victory will be heard from just playing through the game and completing jobs, but there are also a fair few secret trophies that you will need a guide for. However, if you were on the robot’s side in I, Robot, maybe skirt around the Giving Back trophy.

 

35. A Way Out

A Way Out

Easiness: 7/10
Time required: 8 hours

One of 2018’s surprise hits successfully brings back the magic of couch co-op in a big way and a very straightforward Platinum trophy while you’re at it. It’s so easy, in fact, that if you’re playing locally with someone else, they will also unlock the Plat without much fuss.

Curiously, none of the trophies for A Way Out are unlocked by just playing the game through to completion. They’re all secrets-based, which might be a pain for some. Luckily, chapter select means hoovering them all up after you finish the story is a piece of cake.

You don’t even need a second player for most of them: just use two controllers at once thanks to the game’s simplistic controls and you should be able to pick up most of the trophies on your own.

 

36. Slyde

Easiness: 1000/10
Time required: 1 minute

From the creators of 1000 Top Rated Game comes…the same game under a different name. It’s painfully obvious that Slyde was released purely to get money from Platinum hunters, but it’s hard to resist as it’s less than £1. It’s only available in the EU store, but I’m sure you can finagle it for other regions too with some account swapping.

This one’s so easy that I can actually describe it here. Choose any photo on medium difficulty and ensure there is a free space in the top right or bottom left and then follow these input instructions: R R U R U L U L L D R D D R R U L U L U L D D D R R U L U L D R D L U U U R R R. A mess of trophies will unlock and just over a minute after you start the game, you will have your Platinum.

 

37. Donut County

Donut County PS4

Easiness: 7/10
Time required: 2-3 hours

A charming little indie puzzler, Donut County’s Platinum trophy is easy to obtain because it’s altogether not that complex a game. You control a hole and must consume everything in your path; you will only need the left stick and the occasional X press throughout the whole experience.

If you miss any of its secret trophies, you can luckily dip back in at any time using level select and hoover them up. They’re actually fun and a little quirky, too. The only bothersome trophies will be filling out your Trashopedia and also completing a later stage without dying, though you will also unlock a trophy for failing. As a bonus, it’s actually a really relaxing game.

 

38. Déraciné

Deracine
Deracine

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 2-3 hours

Déraciné is a PSVR-only experience, so that might discredit it from being on this list of the easiest Platinum trophies in the eyes of many. However, as it’s a game that you deliberately have to go out of your way to not get full completion for, we’re including it here nonetheless.

To get Déraciné’s Plat, all you need to do is complete the main story, which itself is pretty straightforward apart from a couple of item hunts. You can breeze through this one in a few hours and enjoy one of the best PSVR games of the year to boot.

 

39. Conan Exiles

Conan Exiles
Conan Exiles

Easiness: 7/10
Time required: 2-3 hours

An absolutely mad oversight in Conan Exiles gives you one of the easiest Platinum trophies you could ever hope to get on your PlayStation 4. Simply set up your own server, set the values to whatever you like, and grind through what could have otherwise been some very monotonous trophies as you level up over and over again.

There are some other fiddly trophies in Conan Exiles, but nothing that can’t be achieved if you simply follow the guide above. It could also be a free Plat if you picked it up during its time on PlayStation Plus. One of the best survival games on PS4, though only just.

 

40. My Name is Mayo 1 & 2

Easiness: 10/10 (may cause RSI)
Time required: 25 minutes

From the same guys behind Mr. Massagy, My Name Is Mayo is a silly clicker that asks you to click on a jar of mayonnaise.

A premise that would make Miyamoto quake in his boots, My Name is Mayo is a very straightforward game with the only challenge being the severity of RSI it gives you. You will need to tap that mayo thousands of times.

Luckily, you can turn the game into a weird sort of co-op experience by getting a pal to hammer the touchpad button while you choose X to get the ultimate amount of clicking done. You can even do it all again on the Vita.

Mayonnaise: bringing people together in more ways than one.

To the second game’s credit, it does try to mix things up a little more but is still an outrageously easy PS4 platinum.

 

41. Mr. Massagy

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 15-25 minutes

My Name Is Mayo, but sexy.

So far, all of the games we’ve mentioned have been fairly innocent fare, the only embarrassment possibly coming from the fact that you are grinding for a plat for the sake of it.

Mr. Massagy is a little different. A visual novel, Mr. Massagy sends you on different dates with a bunch of weird and unusual women, one of which is an alien who is very aggressive about using your sperm. Lovely.

Once your date is a success, you will unlock the ability to massage them, just like unlocking the plat after following a handy guide will massage your ego. It’s not a bad game, in truth. It can actually be kind of funny. Just don’t let your mum see you flirting with a wolf-girl.

 

42. Jack N’ Jill DX

Easiness: 9/10
Time required: 10 minutes

Looking like something that was ported straight from the Game Boy, Jack N’ Jill is a super basic game that doesn’t ask much of you.

Kinda like Super Meat Boy minus the difficulty that makes you want to punch yourself in the neck, Jack N’ Jill asks you to overcome easy platforming to find your blobby love.

Available for really cheap, you will really struggle to struggle in this game, so much so that you may even be able to dust it off in just ten minutes.

What else are you going to accomplish in ten minutes? You need at least a good fifteen for a proper shower cry.

 

43. Destroy All Humans!

Destroy All Humans
Destroy All Humans

Easiness: 7-10
Time required: 15 hours

A great remake of a cult classic also brings with it a fairly easy Platinum trophy on PS4.

The main meat of the game, the campaign, takes ten hours or under to dust off and comes with a whole host of story trophies along the way — it gives them out like candy.

The only difficulty may arrive when trying to dust off those challenges, so expect to add five hours on top for those. They’re not terribly hard, they just may take you some time.

 

44. Epic Word Search Collection 2

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 1 hour

Without a guide, this might take you a while.

With a guide, though, Epic Word Search Collection 2 will give you your Plat a little over an hour after you first start it. It’s just a simple word search game, there’s not much else to it.

This one was seemingly designed for trophy hunters, so pick it up on the ultra cheap if you want to boost your level a bit.

 

45. Crypto By Powgi

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 1 hour

Probably the least game-y game of all of them on this list, Crypto By Powgi asks you to fill in letters of famous quotes.

That’s it.

With a guide, this easy PS4 Platinum can be dusted off in a single hour or under. Who could have possibly guessed that you would have to complete an Eric Cantona quote to get an easy Plat on your PS4?

 

46. Chickens On the Road

Easiness: 10/10
Time required: 5 minutes

A game that would probably be rejected by Miniclip, Chickens On the Road makes most of the creations within Dreams look like masterpieces. Luckily for you, it’s a pretty painless Plat that you can unlock while you eat lunch.

All you have to do is rack up the points as you run over chickens in a car, simple as that. The developers were pretty much aiming to make a quick buck off trophy hunters and it’s worked.

 

47. Super Destronaut DX

Easiness: 6/10
Time required: 25 minutes

Basically Space Invaders but a tad naff, Super Destronaut DX is a very simple wave-based shooter that belongs in a museum. It’s far from the worst game in this collection, but it isn’t exactly great, either.

While you do have to dip into multiple modes in Super Destronaut DX and hit some relatively high scores, anyone who’s familiar with classic arcade shooters really shouldn’t struggle at all.

 

48. Burly Men at Sea

Easiness: 9/10
Time required: 2 hours

Burly Men at Sea is a very straightforward little narrative game where you uncover the stories of the titular large lads in the ocean and have to make choices from multiple options with things panning out differently.

What that means for you is having to replay the short storyline a few times before you can unlock the Plat. The game’s lo-fi nature may make you a little sleepy, but if you have some caffeine in your system, expect to be done in two hours.

 

49. The Suicide of Rachel Foster

Easiness: 9/10
Time required: 2 hours

Another narrative-focused game that could come under the “walking sim” label, The Suicide of Rachel Foster sees you travelling to a hotel in search of answers in a suicide case that’s more complex than it seems.

While a lot heavier than other games on this list, The Suicide of Rachel Foster still offers a straightforward Plat that can be yours in roughly two hours, so long as you follow a collectibles guide. Game’s not too bad, either.

 

50. Storm Boy: The Game

Easiness: 9/10
Time required: 30 minutes – 1 hour

A cheap and quick Platinum trophy that’s actually a pretty good game to beat? Blowfish have somehow done the impossible with Storm Boy, an adaptation that may make your eyes somewhat damp.

Playing as both the titular Storm Boy and Mr. Percival, his pelican friend, Storm Boy is a gentle adventure game that can be platinumed in roughly an hour. A lovely little game, this is one super easy Platinum that you don’t have to feel guilty about.

Any I missed?

I deliberately avoided open-world AAA games that may not offer a challenge but take 40+ hours to get the Platinum thanks to an endless stream of collectibles — Ghost of Tsushima and Marvel’s Spider-Man included. I’ve also disregarded games that may be easy but are just one long grind.
