Red Dead Redemption, a western open-world game with a great single-player story and a wide-range of enjoyable multiplayer experiences. While the same engine, calling it simply grand theft auto horse does the game a disservice. More than just about any other game I have ever played, Red Dead had a definite sense of place and character. Overall a wonderful representative of gaming the art form.
Having taken a nearly two year hiatus from my first playthrough, I went back to experience all of the DLC packs and to earn back 100% of the trophies. Earning all but a few legitimately (and having taken advantage of the occasional player who was away-from-keyboard), I found myself boosting a few that seemed ridiculous. Legion of Boom, Call it a Comeback, and Kingpin all require dumb luck, sandbagging, collusion, player-killing, or a combination of all of the above. As a result, though the former two probably would have come eventually, I instead opted to fall in with some folks led by braffix from the ps3trophies.org boosting forum for the first, and online buddy tonybetrus for the latter. Kingping is in a category by itself, probably the second worst trophy I have ever claimed (Portal 2 claims the worst). Getting eight players to respond to an optional invite is well nigh impossible, and killing all of them within three minutes requires the planets to align. Back on the ps3trophies.org forum, a fellow named Coys- and I recruited 15+ players spanning nearly as many timezones to put this one together, and it still was not easy. I doubt very many people have ever earned this legitimately, and I would bet the developers expected as much.
Platinum #2 and beyond.
