    How long do you wait til giving up on a plat?

    Depending on the game, I will wait about 6 months becore deciding to give up. If I have 1 or 2 trophies to get, it will take a bit longer, if ever, before I give up on it.

    If it is a game that I have enjoyed, it will sit around forever and I will periodically go back to it.

    Before, I used to try and if I failed I'd play another game and then go back to it once I wanted to try again.

    Now I will only play one game at a time and I won't start the next until I have completed it.

    I don't really give up, I just go off the game for abit, however this is rare. I mean I have games that I will never platinum, but I haven't gone seeking the platinum on them. On games where I aim to get the plat, more likely than not I will plat the game

    I try to be done with one before starting another, but in some instances I get burnt out on a game so I move on to another till I feel like going back and finishing.

    EDIT: In other words....... NEVER!

    If they want the plat then they should try harder

    I never have that many games at once so I can spend as much time as I like on one. I also wait for game prices to drop because there are only a few games I bother to preorder.

    1) Start game.
    2) Get angry.
    3) Come back.
    4)

    So not too long.

    I aim to complete a game on my first play of it. If I don't get evertything, then I put it on the shelf. One day I'll come back to it. It also depends on the game of course. If I liked the game a lot, I have no problem playing it again and again and again until I finish it.

    When I get bored of a game, it takes me awhile to get back to it. Any of my games that I have around 20% left to Plat is usually on hold for a while. For example, in God of War, I only have 2 trophies left, but one requires another playthrough, and the other one is a pain in the ass, so I'll pick a random Saturday to finish it off, but that may be awhile. I try to only play one game until the Plat now, unless it's a game I don't want to Plat.

    If I can't platinum a game after 4 months then I give up. This only happens when the game is not worth playing anymore.

    Well I don't have a lot of platinums but that doesn't mean I give up on the games I just sometimes don't have the time. This year I'm definitely going after every I can.

    I hardly ever give up. There have been plenty of times where I leave and come back to a game months later (Resistance 2, Killzone 2, Crysis 2) just to plat it.

    Best advice is never give up. Just take a break from hardest game like GT5, Max Payne 3 etc I did and start another game.

    See with these 3, I've almost given up on them. BUT, I DID get the Resistance 2 finally last summer!! And, now I'm on the verge of getting the for Crysis 2 (finally done with the MP and now can focus on the SP ), Killzone 2 I'm starting over because I've lost my data when my old PS3 caught instant aids (YLOD). So, I guess I can say the same thing you've said just now.

    Took the words out of my mouth, haha.

    Some games i give up on if they take forever and are not good enough, or are just way too hard. [Max Payne 3, what a let down]
