On a question from a reader, the PlayStation Blog dug through Sony's telemetry and produced a list of the 10 games with the most Platinum trophy winners. Platinum trophies, of course, are awarded when someone collects all of the trophies available in a title.
Earning the platinum takes a lot of persistence and skill. It also requires some considerate design by the game's developers; novelty achievements seen in some Xbox 360 titles (especially ones from games released at the beginning of its achievement system) can be clever, but make getting that platinum prohibitively time consuming, if not impossible.
And, as Jeff Rubenstein (owner of just three platinum trophies himself) points out, the games have to be good. The time involvement required means a platinum trophy hunter had better really enjoy what he's playing.
Without further ado, here are the 10 games with the most platinum trophy holders.
1. Assassin's Creed II
2. Modern Warfare 2
3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
4. God of War 3
5. Resident Evil 5
7. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
8. God of War (GoW HD Collection)
10. Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (The Sly Collection)
