25 Easiest Platinum Trophies on PS4
Pick up some of these easiest Platinum trophies to make you feel like the ultimate PS4 player. But really, you're just cheesing through a lot of bad games.
16. Game of Thrones
Probably the worst game in Telltale’s renaissance since finding mass popularity, Game of Thrones is still a fine game, even if it does run like total ass far too often.
As you’ve come to expect, the Platinum here is as easy as killing off the Lannisters: just go through the game and complete all five episodes. Try not to wince at Emilia Clarke’s shoddy voice acting and you will have another shiny blue trophy to add to your collection. They’re at work on a second season, so expect another easy Platinum before too long.

17. Orc Slayer
Almost everyone who plays this game gets the Platinum, so if you don’t, you might need to turn off your Playstation and think about some stuff.
It’s a simple case of completing the game and trying not to miss the four trophies that are separate. You can do the whole thing in one sitting, if you can put up with a pretty atrocious shooter for that long. Orc Slayer is pretty damn close to being the worst PS4 game ever made, so collecting all of its 27 trophies may seem like a chore. I gave up after about an hour – sometimes it just isn’t worth it.

If you’re lucky enough to get through the utterly wild Jazzpunk without your melted brain seeping out of your ears, you deserve a Platinum trophy.
A lot of the trophies available are tied in with the story, but there are plenty of odd little sidemissions to beat involving pigeons. You may need a guide, but as Jazzpunk is such an easy, enjoyable game that’s over within about two hours, it’s worth doing a bit of reading up on or watching a walkthrough on YouTube.

19. Day of the Tentacle Remastered
Point and click games seem to be hallowed ground for completionists. Whether it’s because it’s usually very hard to reach a fail state or that they’re typically short, Platinums are never too far away.
Luckily for aggrieved PlayStation Subscribers who baulked at Day of the Tentacle being one of their free games, Day of the Tentacle at least gives you a simple Platinum. With a guide, all you have to do is interact with certain items and complete the story. It helps that it’s a great game, too.
Time required: 3 hours
20. Late Shift
A confusingly presented “game” (it used to be a cinema experience before being brought to consoles), Late Shift is an FMV title that boasts over four hours of film within, but you’re going to have to play through it multiple times to find every scene.
To unlock all the trophies and the elusive Platinum, you will need to unlock all seven endings. Each playthrough takes upwards of 80 minutes and there’s also no option to dip in and out of scenes. That means you’re going to have to play through it seven times to unlock everything, but don’t sweat it. There’s no difficulty involved whatsoever – it’s a game that’s only gameplay is selecting prompts.
Don’t rush to unlock all endings straight away; it’s a pretty quick way to get burnt out on a flawed but interesting title. Dip into it every week or so with the help of a guide and find everything you need to.

21. Seasons After Fall
Seasons After Fall has one of the easiest Platinum trophies for a pretty simple reason: you cannot die. No matter how troubling its puzzles may be or the amount of times your fox falls from a ledge, the game is a sincere and serene affair that you can walk through at your own leisure.
The only difficulty it really poses is finding the flowers scattered around the massive forest, but as it was originally on PC, guides will show you the way without fuss. Plus, as a bonus, the game’s actually quite neat. The story is a little lacking and it isn’t the most enthralling of affairs, but it’s certainly one of the most relaxing. Reconnect with nature and earn a dirty Plat while you’re at it.
Time required: 8+ hours
22. The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
The most recent Telltale game keeps up the grand tradition of giving the player piece of cake Platinum trophies. All you have to do is beat its five episodes. Questions is: could you put up with the emotional turmoil or severe lack of Clem?
Time required: 6 hours
23. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Hellblade is not an easy game to play in terms of its subject matter, but it most certainly is when it comes to getting its Platinum. You could theoretically get all of its trophies in just one sitting with a video guide at the ready.
It sometimes offers a challenge, but the combat is intuitive and the puzzles are difficult without being obnoxious to the extent that you will be able to crawl your way over the finish line within eight to ten hours. Hellblade absolutely doles out Golds, just from playing through the story. The only thing that will give you pause for thought is the game’s form of collectibles, which are “lorestones”. It’s easy to miss these, but with a video like the one above, you should be able to enjoy one of the best games of 2017 and add another Plat to your collection, too.
Time required: 8-10 hours
With the beloved pacifist RPG’s debut on PlayStation systems came a whole bunch of “unusual” trophies, clearly showing that Toby Fox doesn’t have much time for achievement hunting – the Undertale PS4 Plat is called ‘Don’t You Have Anything Better To Do?’.
There are a bunch of other silly trophies too, including a trophy for each time you pick up your first four items in the game. There’s even a silver waiting for you for picking up the fourth. The rest of the trophies are mainly earned by just playing through the game, but there’s also the option to donate money to a Dog Shrine and unlock trophies for doing so. It’s slightly time-consuming but totally worth it, so check them all out over here.

25. My Name is Mayo
This can’t be real.
Is this a hoax?
Click loads, unlock a Platinum. Wow.
Time required: 25 minutes
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. I’ve also disregarded games that may be easy but are just one long grind.
