PS5 Games With The Easiest Platinum Trophies

Highlights

  • Some PS5 games offer easy platinum trophies that can be obtained in a short amount of time, providing a quick sense of achievement for players.
  • These games, such as
    The Jumping Churros: Turbo
    and
    My Name Is Mayo,
    may not offer much in terms of gameplay or challenge, but they can still be enjoyable in their simplicity.
  • Players who prioritize the trophy itself over the overall gaming experience may find satisfaction in obtaining these easy platinum trophies.

Some people are obsessed with getting as many trophies as possible. They will even play games they have no interest in just because the particular title has an easy-to-nab platinum trophy. A couple of them only take a few hours, while some of the more involved ones take more time but are still easy to obtain. While there are some mindless, cheaper games on the PlayStation Store, seemingly designed just to give people an easy platinum trophy on the PS5, most of the games are also big titles that will give players emotional fulfillment in addition to the trophy.

8 Achievements That Take Too Long To Acquire

Hundreds upon thousands of hours of constant grinding and replaying are often required to get these devious achievements.

While some people like slaving away for a Platinum trophy, it can wear at a player’s patience after a point because of the menial tasks involved in getting this achievement. As a result, there’s always an appeal to a short and sweet title that lets players unwind and rewards them with this treasured achievement in no time at all. It’s a simple pleasure that many PlayStation 5 gamers will enjoy for their own reasons.

Updated on March 2, 2024 by Ritwik Mitra: Players have become downright addicted to decorating their PSN with trophies of all kinds. However, everyone knows that the ultimate trophy most players seek out time and time again is the elusive Platinum, which serves as a definitive mark of the player doing everything possible in completing the game of their choice, obtaining every single trophy in the process. While slaving away for hundreds of hours to get a Platinum trophy can seem daunting, there are several games that players can complete in just a few hours, earning every trophy possible in the process. We’ve added a few more to this list for players looking for another quick Platinum trophy.

21 The Jumping Churros: Turbo

  • Release Date:
    September 23, 2022
  • Developer:
    ThiGames

The Jumping Churros: Turbo is similar to My Name Is Mayo but with a different aesthetic. Instead of clicking on a jar of mayonnaise, players make a churro jump up and down constantly until they reach the platinum trophy. This game even allows players to simply hold down the jump button, making for perhaps the easiest platinum trophy to earn on the PS5.

It is difficult to tell whether the developer released this game as a joke or if they knew they could make some easy cash from those who want to exploit the trophy system. Either way, it’s both funny and an unsatisfying way to earn a platinum.

20 My Name Is Mayo

30 Minutes

  • Platforms:
    PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch, PC
  • Release Date:
    February 15, 2016
  • Developer:
    Green Lava Studios

There is a certain trend with budget games on the PlayStation store that exist purely to nab an easy PS5 platinum trophy. My Name is Mayo is one of these titles. The entire game consists of clicking on a jar of mayonnaise. As players click, they unlock new costumes to dress up their jar of mayo.

Just click 10,000 times to beat the game and earn the trophy. As easy as this platinum as this might be, it is hard to feel accomplished doing this. Players’ friends might berate them for going for such an easy platinum trophy, perhaps even staining their trophy record instead of increasing it.

19 Dark Sauce

  • Platforms:

  • Developer:

There are many cute platformers present on the PS5 that players can check out for themselves, with Dark Sauce being one such title that is worth a quick romp if nothing else. Players control an adorable pig as they guide him through a series of levels to steal treasure from a dragon’s horde.

10 Easy PlayStation Games That Have Absurdly Difficult Platinum Trophies

Despite being easy, acquiring the Platinum Trophies in these games is way too difficult.

Simply completing the game while dying a bunch of times in the process is more than enough to secure the all-important platinum. It’s a relatively pain-free way to attain an achievement that other games will torture players over, and it helps that the game itself is pretty engaging in its own right.

An interactive experience based on a book of the same name written by Colin Thiele, Storm Boy is a unique experience that fans should check out if they want to relax with a fairly easy video game. Most of the gameplay takes place in the form of quaint minigames, and players will love the heartfelt nature of the game and its art style.

It’s also a really easy game to Platinum, with the bulk of the effort involved in just moving through the title and finishing it in around half an hour or so. It’s a simple and fun experience that fans can check out if they don’t want to get into a hardcore time commitment.

A top-down 2D game that is very much inspired by the classic Zelda series, players who love adventure games, puzzles, and dogs will get a kick out of playing Milo’s Quest. It’s a fun distraction for players to become invested in if they’re seeking out something to bide their time with, with the platinum coming after around an hour of play.

Players who want to check out everything the game has to offer may possibly stretch the game to two hours, but that’s about it. The title is simple and heartfelt, making it worth checking out for any fan of old-school video game experiences.

Finding the best PC games for children is more an art than an exact science, though there are certainly still plenty of choices available for parents.

A bonus here is that the game can be completed in no time, with the Platinum trophy unlockable after just an hour and a half. This is nothing compared to the other titles that make players toil for ages to get this accolade.

  • Developer:

Earning the platinum trophy essentially amounts to beating the game. This is not a case of a game designed simply to give players an easy PS5 platinum trophy. Pinkman+ is an engaging platformer with a simple but distinct art style. It will feel both satisfying and brief to earn this platinum.

Anyone who goes through the game will have no issue snagging this platinum once they beat the game. Any platformer enthusiast is going to have a good time going through Pinkman+.

  • Release Date:

  • Developer:
    Visai Games

More games need to provide some much-needed South Asian representation, and Venba is a great example of why. The game uses cooking minigames to highlight many aspects of South Indian cuisine while communicating a fun narrative along the way.

Venba is a beautiful and short experience that shows indie gaming at its very best. Players who check out this game on the PlayStation 5 will easily power through this fun, cozy game, earning a Platinum trophy in no time at all.

Genre(s)
Puzzle , Adventure

After Playdead’s founders broke off to start new companies of their own, players assumed that the indie giant wouldn’t grace the market any longer. However, Cocoon made it clear that the people behind classic games like Limbo and Inside would still light up the indie scene from time to time.

These PlayStation 5 games are perfect for the whole family, especially children.

Cocoon‘s world within worlds concept gives its puzzles more of an edge. The game is a short yet sweet experience that proves once again that games don’t need to be 50-hour epic adventures to remain fresh in the minds of players. Sometimes, a few quick hours are all it takes for a title to make a powerful impression on fans, and Cocoon is no exception.

12 12 Minutes

4-6 Hours

Talking to the wife in 12 Minutes

12 Minutes

Released
August 19, 2021

Developer(s)
Luis Antonio

Genre(s)
Adventure

12 Minutes has been extremely polarizing due to its taboo themes. It is not that games are not allowed to talk about what is discussed in this puzzle game, but it is the way it is tackled that really upsets some gamers. All the same, the platinum in 12 Minutes can be completed quickly with the use of a guide. Even though it technically takes several playthroughs of the time loop game to achieve, the game is so short it is not as monumental an undertaking as it seems.

In fact, some people would argue that reading through a guide is a better way to figure out the game’s solutions because of how inane they can be. While there’s a fair bit of freedom involved in the way players can carry out a litany of actions in the game, only one path is the intended one and feels needlessly complicated. This game could’ve been a vastly better experience if there were multiple solutions to the problem, which should’ve been there from the get-go.

11 Astro’s Playroom

5-6 Hours

Astro's Playroom is the Best Reason to Buy a PS5

Astro’s Playroom

Released
November 12, 2020

Developer(s)
ASOBI Team

Genre(s)
Platformer

This game comes packed in with every PlayStation 5. It is a small 3D platformer and uses its playtime to celebrate the history of PlayStation while also serving as a great showcase for DualSense. Those who had PSVR will recognize these characters from Astro Bot Rescue Mission.

Obtaining the platinum in Astro’s Playroom basically amounts to beating the game while finding all the collectibles, which won’t take players too long. Maybe a collectible or two will require a guide, but the levels are small enough, so players won’t get lost.

10 Stray

Genre(s)
Adventure

It is difficult not to love Stray for how accurately it depicts the life and mannerisms of a cat. It also has a relatively short campaign so most can beat it in just a couple of sittings. For those who are after trophies, a platinum trophy can be earned in almost as long as it takes to beat the game as long as one uses a trophy guide to know what to look for.

Stray: 6 Hardest Trophies To Obtain

Among the 25 trophies in Stray, these select few are the hardest for players to obtain in the indie game.

Players can either try to do it all in their first playthrough or use the initial run to enjoy the story and then go back for the trophy cleanup on a second playthrough. The gameplay is pretty relaxing and the world-building is excellent… and, of course, there’s no need to convince players why controlling a cat would be such a magical experience!

9 Maneater

10 Hours

Shark in Maneater

Maneater

Released
May 22, 2020

Genre(s)
Action RPG

Maneater is a unique concept. Players control a shark who is out for vengeance against those who killed her mother. It is structured almost like a micro-western RPG. Regardless of what one thinks of Maneater, it is undoubtedly the best game where players control a shark.

The shark levels up and there are optional side quests. Maneater is not difficult, so doing all the side content is more of a cozy jaunt through the underwater title. Few tasks will provide much resistance.

8 Serious Sam 4

10-12 Hours

Minigun from Serious Sam 4.

  • Platforms:
    PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia
  • Release Date:
    December 24, 2020
  • Developer:
    Croteam

This first-person shooter franchise has no illusions as to what it is. Serious Sam is all about destroying massive swarms of alien enemies. The series started more than twenty years ago and still carries on this thesis statement to this day.

With no collectibles in sight, all the trophies in Serious Sam 4 are either unlocked by playing the game, doing a side mission that is easy to find, or by killing enemies using a certain weapon. The difficulty options have no bearings on trophies, so players can go on the easiest mode just to get the platinum as quickly as possible.

7 Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

12 Hours

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Released
November 12, 2020

Insomniac Games was pretty clear that Miles Morales is not a sequel to 2018’s massively successful Spider-Man. As such, the title is not as long and has a smaller scope than its full-length predecessor. Getting the platinum requires doing all the side content and then beating the game a second time.

While this seems like a lot, beating the game a second time only takes a couple of hours if players zoom their way through it. Going through Miles Morales twice is also easy, simply because the game is so fun and engaging. There is still plenty of time to earn this before the next Spider-Man game comes out in 2023.

6 Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

12-15 Hours

Rivet Interrogates Clank In Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Released
June 11, 2021

Genre(s)
Platformer , Third-Person Shooter

The Ratchet & Clank franchise came back strong after a notable hiatus with Rift Apart. In addition to its surprisingly emotional story, the gameplay is as smooth as the series has ever been, even if it does not add a lot to the formula.

Rivet has every Ratchet & Clank fan wanting to know more about her. Here are some interesting things about the character’s history.

Like most 3D platformers, there are collectibles to gather and these contribute to the trophies. Then, there are certain challenges related to weapons. Many of them are obtainable without thinking. For the collectibles, just use a guide and it will not be a problem.

5 Life Is Strange: True Colors

13 Hours

Life Is Strange True Colors Alex And Steph Holding Hands

Life Is Strange: True Colors

Released
December 7, 2021

Genre(s)
Adventure

The Life Is Strange games are all narrative-driven adventures. There is not a lot in the way of challenge, and most of the gameplay comes down to decision-making. All the same, earning the platinum trophy still forces players to find some collectibles scattered throughout the campaign.

This can all be done in True Colors in a single playthrough, though players will need to use a guide or a walkthrough. Some players might want to save it for a second playthrough, using the first run as just a way to enjoy and soak in the story.

4 The Medium

13 Hours

The Medium

Released
January 28, 2021

Genre(s)
Survival Horror

This one comes with a small caveat. While it is extremely easy to obtain every trophy for The Medium in a single playthrough, the frequent autosaving also means it is easy to mess up, forcing players to start all over again. There are also some trophies for gameplay achievements that players will most likely automatically acquire during a playthrough.

Players should use a guide every step of the way to avoid any annoying problems. The title only came to PS5 about a year after its initial launch on PC and Xbox. It should appeal to fans of old survival horror games, particularly Silent Hill.

3 A Plague Tale: Innocence

14 Hours

A Plague Tale: Innocence

Released
May 14, 2019

Genre(s)
Action , Adventure , Stealth

This narrative-driven action-adventure game does not present much in the way of challenge, which already makes it a great candidate for an easy PS5 platinum trophy. In addition to beating A Plague Tale: Innocence, nabbing the platinum trophy also includes doing a specific action during each chapter and getting all the collectibles.

Genre(s)
3D Platformer

Most people were elated to find out that SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom would be remade for the modern generation. The platformer wasn’t anything special, but fans still have fond memories of playing one of the more competent licensed SpongeBob games.

The game isn’t really all that challenging, with its comedic tone and imaginative levels being its strongest aspects. Players can easily blaze through this game and do everything necessary to get the Platinum in just under 15 hours.
