    How do you react to a Platinum Trophy?

    There is no better feeling for a PS3/PSVita trophy hunter than the hunt for a Platinum Trophy being fulfilled. As trophy hunters, we spend much of our "leisure time" pursuing that Platinum dream. But how does it feel to finally get there?
    So here is my question to all of you: what's your reaction to the Platinum you just earned? Do you calmly nod your head, or do you howl like a wolf? Do you tell all your friends and brag, or just head on to the next game? Was any Platinum celebration (possibly your first one) different than the others?
    As for me, I usually raise my arms, scream and then calm myself with some triumphant music on Youtube. There have been ones that stand out as "memorable reactions", such as tears with Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (dedicated to a deceased friend who was a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog) and having my family watch me get my WWE All Stars Platinum.
    So how about it? How's your "Platinum reactions"?

    Depends on the game. Dead Nation I gave the fist pump. Mafia 2 I gave a sigh of relief and chucked it in the drawer. Resident Evil 5/ORC got the finger point to the sky.

    It depends on the game really. If I seriously wanted the platinum, I usually celebrate for a bit and feel accomplished. For other games, I go "Welp, now that's over". My last platinum, Skyrim, I felt the best I've ever felt for a trophy in a long time.

    [top]How do you react to a Platinum Trophy?

    It depends, sometimes if I know it's easy or I've done it before like Uncharted, when I obtain it again I'd be like *sigh* sweet.
    BUT if it's a game that has been challenging & frustrating then I have before actually jumped up in excitement & been like..

    In general I just take a deep breath of relief and satisfaction with a big smile in my face after seeing the platinum trophy just pop'ed up

    Then follows a nostalgic moment of picturing in my mind all what I've been through in the game to achieve it, and that classic though: "ok what now?"

    What I mostly do when I'm about get my platinum's

    1. Wait a long time for platinum trophy to pop "it kinda delays"
    2. Celebrate with a yay and a fist pump. Feeling Pumped, fulfilled,and down right awesome
    3. Recap what I did and looked at all my trophies
    4. Big sigh of relieve and promise myself to never play said game again.
    5. Put away game on shelf then figure out what to go for next.

    I go for a night on town with champagne and 'hos.
    No seriously, I don't "brag" to friends or anything. When I'm done with the game, I sell it and buy a new one. No big deal.
    However if it's a game I've used *a lot* of time on, I feel like I've wasted away hours of my life when I get the plat. Every time. Yet I still continue for the fun of the challenge.
