These are the 25 most common PSN trophies

first_imgRecently we went through a list of the rarest PSN trophies, and now it’s time to look at the other end of the spectrum: the most common. The folks at Giant Bomb helped us compile this one with a list of 25 accolades that lots of people get, taken from their database of users with connected PSN accounts.As before, the rarity of these trophies is relative, which means they’re based on the number of unlocks vs. the number of people playing each game.Persona 4 Arena — You know the Midnight Channel? — Tuned In — unlocks: 581Sly 1 — Sucker Punched! — Enter the world of Sly Cooper! — unlocks: 1638Shadows of the Damned — You Go To Hell — Start a new game for the first time.

From the developer’s perspective, these easy trophies are a good way to encourage new players. But when you see them all lined up together, you have to wonder whether they undermine the value of trophy/achievement systems.Unlike the rare trophy list, where a few titles dominated the top 25, here no game appears more than twice. That fact demonstrates that a significant number of players are trying these games long enough to earn one or two trophies, but quitting before getting any further. The games on the list are widely varied in nature; the big name, multiplatform Batman: Arkham City appears right over the wonderfully bizarre downloadable Noby Noby Boy, and the remake of the classic Sly Cooper series lands way up in the #2 spot.One achievement, Betilla’s Back from Rayman Origins, actually manages to occupy two slots — one each for it’s PS3 and VITA versions. Arkham Asylum’s Freeflow Combo 5 trophy overwhelmingly has the most unlocks with 3,055 — not surprising, since it was a popular game. Oddly, the next highest is Shardenfreude from Shatter (1,735), a downloadable brick-breaker game that’s about as far from Batman as you can get.Thanks again to Giant Bomb for their help!last_img read more
