    I personally have used a guide to achieve every single platinum , so if it weren't for the guy's doing the great work on the guides I would have a big fat zero , how many have you achieved without a guide , using internet or help in any way ?

    I don't know the exact number but somewhere between 10-15 for myself.

    I rather try to get the plat by my own means before using a guide as it's gives me a greater feeling of accomplishment once I do get it.

    Probably 2, Heavy Rain and The Sims 3 since my other 3 have heaps of collectables that wouldn't be able to find on my own.

    I think the Sly Collection and Sports Champions are the only ones I have gotten without the help of a guide (may have looked briefly just to see how many trophies or if any were missable, but not advice on how to get them). Could have gotten R&C and Rayman most likely, but I just consulted one so I could be a bit more efficient. It's also tough when games have non-story related hidden trophies as you have no idea what you are supposed to do.

    exactly how does one Plat Heavy Rain without a guide? Kamikaze (maybe if you got lucky on the right sequence) But all Endings without a guide seriously?

    edit: I forgot to count Skyrim, since I platted that one before we even had a guide for it.

    Only Need for Need: Undercover and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD were done without guides. On Assassin's Creed II and Skyrim in need a guide for the odd trophy. I prefer to get trophies without a guide, it feels more of an accomplishment when I get a trophy or a

    I guess you could scratch most of the games I own with collectibles in them (except a few like Infamous series, AC 2, and other games where there is some in game way to keep track of which collectables you've already got, or map over all of the collectibles)
    Collectable trophies are pretty much the only trophies I use guides for as I just can't be bothered with running around looking cluelessly for 200 pigeons (GTA IV im looking at you) without any sort of reward or way of finding them except good old trial and error T___T

    i'm not quite sure exactly how many i would have but i know it would be awfully close to zero lol. I pretty much look at a guide everytime for a game and quite a few of my plats have collectables so yeah, i'd wouldn't have many, maybe none.
