Hey man! Congratulation on level 100!

Question here, how quickly did you get that 400 streak trophy for that Tiesto' song on Expert in DJ Hero 2?

And what was the hardest trophy to get for games that require hardware other than a normal controller?

Thanks!

Thanks for answering! I saw a price for it looking at your website so I assumed that you did! It's one hell of a trophy if you ask me!

Another question if you don't mind. How do you deal with online trophies for games with totally dead communities? Do you have 2 PS3 or you sometime buy 2 copies of a game and have a friend to play it with?

Congratulations! I've thought about achievement/trophy hunting before, but then I quickly realize that I actually have to play so many games on one platform that I just can't bring myself to do it.

I wonder how many games he double dipped on. Sound Shapes for instance, you only have to play once but get a Platinum for the PS4, PS3, and Vita.
4 platinums, in fact, because the EU and USA PS4 versions are separate lists. lol

Congrats Hakoom. Well played.

I don't know how you could do that. I got about 7 platinums before realizing that playing for trophies ruins my enjoyment. I'm completely indifferent to them now.

Congrats!

What is the longest you've gone in a single gaming session? 30hrs? 40hrs? Was it for a single game or for several?

Could you please list the top 5 difficult trophies and games you've earned?

Same here. I find platinum hunting simply sucks out too much of my time. It all feels pointless in the end. All those hours... and I have achieved absolutely nothing.

So do you ever replay a game for enjoyment after you platinum'd it. Not for some one else, just for fun.
it depends
for example in TLOU
since there was no guide or anything..
i had to replay the game 6 or 7 times.. same with beyond..
i think its enough replay :p

Congrats!

Wait a site is dirty if it removes website links from profile information? What's wrong with that? It's a liability issue as anyone could put a malious link in their profile information and it would show up on THEIR site...

The only thing you exposed is how narrow-minded your train of logic is...
I agree. I was gobsmacked at the poor writing and insane fucking immaturity. I thought the guy would be cool and all, but I have seen enough. Basically just slanders someone because he doesn't get special treatment? Most websites have it in their rules to not link to rival sites.

Man, the guy just seems arrogant and up himself. Yes, I know you use NeoGAF and are in this thread, but seriously? You think that link makes you look like some hero? Lol. All it says to me is that there is some poor bastard who was doing his job and then is getting shit for no reason now by some angry uber fan who has played too many games. You basically said in that link that you didn't really use that site much, but you were happy to use it to advertise a rival website and yourself? Thanks man, now I can say I'm happily not on the Hakoom love train, but before today I had heard of you a few times and respected what you were doing.

Still can't get over that link. OMG.....woooooow!

Would love to see a list of games that can be Platinumed in a few hours!

My proudest Platinum is Dark Souls. Think I have 23 in total though.

600+ is amazing!

Wtf is up with all this Hakoom hate.
Yes, some sites have a policy preventing linking to rival sites, but removing a user from the leaderboards because he wrote a rant about your site on his blog? How is that not childish? From that link, I just saw a bit of naivety and some overly dramatic phrasing in parts but where exactly is the arrogance?

Congrats. I played MMOs this way from 2001 to 2009. Hit a lot of firsts to max level, max PvP rank, etc. Used to get a late of congrats but a lot of hate/no life coments, too. Sometimes that's hard... Folks don't understand how passionate about gaming you have to be to play that much. Ego chasers do it for one game or a few months and burn out; doing it for years is pure passion. But be careful. I loved it and said the same things you did for 9 years, but now almost 5 years after I quit hardcore gaming, a lot of regrets. Made me successful in some ways... Once you've grinded the original hit max level first in DAOC PvP or SWG Jedi or one of the first WoW R14 High Warlords 5 months, 19 hours average a day... You never have excuses in real life. I work that way as a banker now and I would say that my years of hardcore gaming made appreciate life and accept hard work more. But I also lost a lot of time... a lot of years...I have to work hard to make up for lost time. You love it when you're in it but one days it's going to mean nothing. All the friends and enemies, clans and guilds, will disappear and no one will remember it. It's just games. And it damaged my eyes. Not badly but my perfect eye sight is gone. The warnings on monitors adn TVs don't lie, it will eventually catch up to you. You may not even notice if you stay in your gaming room most of the time but wait until you try drive and read road signs 5 years later. Also, the attack on that rival site... I mean, the way you write reminds me of how much of an isolated bubble I became when I'd lose myself in gaming for months at a time. So, just some words from someone like minded that is 5 year post the point your at now. But still, definite congrats to anyone that loves gaming so much.

I have zero platinums and bought a ps3 when mgs4 was released (so before trophies came ouy), I'm sort of reverse proud of that.

Question - do you not touch game add-ons/DLC since they don't have a plat?

Or will you make an exception with games that you loved like the upcoming DLC for The Last of Us?

Remarkable. Setting out a goal and achieving it is always admiring. The goal being at this caliber though, just impressive. I can't imagine all of the shitty games you forced yourself through.
Congratulation.

Yeah we know that you started this on your own and with your account at first, but are you saying that your brothers, cousins, and friends didn't play your account to help you get trophies?

من صجك ياخي؟
نبي الصراحة :b
Are you saying we must embargo our Playstation from friends and family to make it legit? That's utterly ridiculous.

What's with the hate? Don't know don't care. I don't know how you could defend the guy though, I mean they remove a link from his profile that links to a rival site, and then he spews this shit on his blog?;

Hakoom said:
I have never seen such a childish and immature person like sly-ripper from psnp who runs the site..
Okay......that guy is childish and this guy retorts with an angry, incoherent rant on his blog, which is riddled with poor grammar and spelling?
Hakoom said:
The only reason i could come up with is that he is jelous and can never be as good as psntl..no matter what he does.
Obviously the reason.....I mean he isn't jealous of the guy's spelling prowess is he?
Hakoom said:
If you support the site then thats fine its your taste and opinion.. If you support the site then thats fine its your taste and opinion.. But if you support him or what he did then you are a scum and trash like him But if you support him or what he did then you are a scum and trash like him
Wow....over an altered comment? (Removed a link)

The arrogance comes from the fact that he must expect special treatment, because if he doesn't he makes a (poorly written) rant on his blog. I have used many forums, and they do not appreciate linking to rival websites, I thought people knew this.

I respect what he has done, he has done amazing things and the fact people look up to him is awesome, as any gamer would dream of that, but if he wants to link to his blog for the public to see, he shouldn't be immune to criticism. I don't know how he thought the blog was productive or even sensible, it just looks really bad and dodgy. He should keep up his trophy hunting, he is amazing at that; second to none, but I still stand by what I said. I don't dislike him, I just don't agree with what he did.

I use TrueTrophies.com, so I'm not some butt-hurt angry guy from the site he called out.

Ill say well done, but I hope you had fun.

I made it a personal rule that I would never play a game only for trophies, if you played games just for trophies and you weren't enjoying yourself, that's not what video games are about man...

BUT, if you were just playing games and happen to hit 100, my hat goes off to you sir.

lets also shut down angryjoes chanel and angry video nerds channel :D on youtube
since the guy u quoted doesnt like childish ranting lol
i ranted because i had the right to rant :p
but yea you will always have haters defending that site
but its fine with me :)
let them hate as much as they want

Question - do you not touch game add-ons/DLC since they don't have a plat?

Or will you make an exception with games that you loved like the upcoming DLC for The Last of Us?

i do touch if they are fast/easy
iam no big fan of dlcs though
i wil play tlou dlc even if it didnt have trophies
tlou <3

thanks to kotaku but they got some wrong info regarding the other 3 users :p

Oh man, that's a lotta games.

Kudos though! Can you tell us the most difficult trophy you got? Or perhaps the worst/best games for trophies?

ninja gaiden 2 and 3 along with sf4 and ssf4 are 1 of the hardest games
worst and best i would say a game like uncharted has a balanced trophy list where we can all enjoy the game + get trohies along the way
worst list would be a list like TLOU :p

Life has so much more to offer then these virtual accolades. I truly feel sorry for you.
that is fine thanks for feeling sorry for me :D

Averaging 15.5 trophies a day? Can I call hacks?
i average 1~20trophis per day
the site calcu;ates average per day
no hacks 100%

I have a cool game for you to platinum or rather get all trophies

FU :p lol

What's with the hate? Don't know don't care. I don't know how you could defend the guy though, I mean they remove a link from his profile that links to a rival site, and then he spews this shit on his blog?;
(.........................)
when you enter spelling/gramer in to an argument or debate..
it means you are just hating or want to derail the argument or debate or defeated in other words..

i had this happen to me in other forums..
once i own a person in an argument he refers to me having bad spelling or grammer :)
this phrase repeats itself everytime lol
because they cannot stay on topic and have nothing to throw back anymore
english is not my mother language + i would never write properly on the internet..
now if this was an english test i would write with proper punctuation and grammer..
iam not a writer or poet... iam a gamer !
now please no need to destroy the thread :)

Ill say well done, but I hope you had fun.

I made it a personal rule that I would never play a game only for trophies, if you played games just for trophies and you weren't enjoying yourself, that's not what video games are about man...

BUT, if you were just playing games and happen to hit 100, my hat goes off to you sir.
true but i play the games to get the trophies
there are games to enjoy and there are games thats cant be enjoyed..
but iam there to get the trophies..

Again, most of what you point out is probably down to naivety. If he had no idea that not linking to a rival's site is a rule which is adopted by many sites then he'll jump to conclusions like that. It is not wanting special treatment, it is just not knowing any better. Also, you're seriously going to criticize his grammar? Maybe not everyone in the world has the same level of proficiency in English as you?

Hakoom, is your first playthrough of the game just normal playing and getting trophies along the way or do you already try to collect/search for everything from the start?

I don't know how someone in his right mind could believe one can possess the skillset for owning so many different and often hyper demanding games at the same time and to boot play 24-36 hours straight while still keeping some sort of normal life, let alone a marital life. Come on. It would be enough of a feat even if he told the truth about having a very well organized team.

I don't know why it is such a foreign thought that someone can do something to the utmost extreme. We have over 7 billion people on this earth. Statistically there is someone for like every discipline/thing that does it to the extreme. That's why we have world records in the first place.

There's only a handfull of really dificult platinums out there. Plus Youtube is littered with movies showing you the best strats and where to find the collectibles. Also I believe once you play as many games as Hakoom you really become quite an expert gamer with good allround skills and getting your typical plat is just going through the motions.

Anyway, I tip my hat to you sir ! Wish I had the same spare time and dedication..
I'm amazed you're not feeling burned out yet on your trophies quest though.. I can image it's pretty hard at times to stay motivated playing through all the crappy games. At least you've gained some internet fame from it :)

BTW, a question: how many random friend request or spam messages do you get on a daily basis ?

how many ps3 did your hardcore playstyle consume over the years?

i would guess the number is surprisingly low as machines that get used day in day out are somehwat lesser prone to failure then machines that get only used once in a while.

I don't find *you* unconvincing. It's the fact itself, of course, that's beyond hard to believe. It's like someone telling me Daigo is also a top Starcraft player. Both require 100% of someone's playtime to keep those skills up. How can someone believe one can have those skills ready for use while concentrating daily on something entirely different? Everybody has concrete proof in his everyday gaming life that even if you go from sf4 to umvsc3 (or cod to bf, or...), skills for the first one need often painful refreshing after some time. Multiply this for music games, action, driving, fighting and so on and do your math about how believable it is for you. I mean, how many times did you all have to explain a girl that asked "are you skilled at videogames" that it's in fact a LOT of different skills?

And to boot, in all honesty, your explanation to all that is even more wild than the fact itself.
