The PLATIDOOM Challenge

the-platidoom-challenge

Platinum trophies are no joke, unless it’s the one for I Am Mayo. These are the trophies that PlayStation 4 gamers get for completing every other trophy (achievements on Xbox) in a game. I have one platinum trophy. It’s for Resistance: Burning Skies, the only PS Vita game in the Resistance series, and it took me years to earn it. Now, with DOOM Eternal out today, I’m making a very stupid decision to challenge myself to get the platinum in DOOM 2016.

PlatiDOOM Challenge Rules

The reason I’m doing this is because I’ve never even finished the campaign in DOOM 2016, not even in the easiest mode. I’ve played a bit of the game, but I’ve not completed anything, apart from a couple of very random multiplayer matches. I really want to play DOOM Eternal, but I’m not doing so until I have this platinum, meaning I’ve made the most of the last game in the series.

I don’t have to complete this challenge before DOOM Eternal launches, it might be a bit late for that anyway, it would be mental. At the time of writing I’ve actually got a few extra days before that game launches, but I know I won’t make it to the platinum by then. Instead I simply need to finish it. The news of seasons in DOOM Eternal is what I think will spur me on, because I’m a sucker for in-game cosmetics that are time limited.

The full list of trophies for DOOM 2016 are as follows.

  • Platinum – Thy Flesh Consumed: Earn all Trophies
  • Bronze – E1M1:Complete the first mission of the campaign
  • Gold – Knee-Deep in the Dead: Complete the campaign on ‘I’m Too Young to Die’, ‘Hurt Me Plenty’, ‘Ultra Violence’, or ‘Nightmare’

  • Bronze – Into the Unknown: Warp to Hell

If I get through the game and I feel like I need a guide for the secrets and collectibles, I’ll be using one. I’m not above using a guide, in fact there are some really talented writers who put those together for this very reason. I will be making a considered effort to get through as many of the trophies without a guide though, because I think I’m capable.

Let me know if I’m mental, or if you’ve got this platinum and think I should go for it, in the comments.
