    !!!Under Construction!!!
    I will obviously be adding descriptions to the things listed below, short verdicts on the various PS3,PS4 and Vita games on the highlights list. I will also highlight my experiences in obtaining my miniscule Platinum collection, and highlighting those that got close to the promised land. I threw out pretty much any game I got less than 5% on to keep it streamlined, with the odd exception like Demon's Souls and The Last of Us.

    Here are some typical pictures of me.

    Hello! Welcome to a Trophy Checklist where I will probably go on about anything but trophies! Well, I might mention them somewhere, but I'll also feed my crippling addiction to writing lists for favourite things in popular culture (I was 2 years recovered until this site showed up).

    Trophies are a fine addition to my gaming experience, but playing always comes first. If I didn't enjoy a game enough, I'm certainly not going to waste my time trying to Plat it. There's too many other titles out there I must play!
    Many (some, a few) may know me as that guy with a balding Jewish man in his forum Sig. A guy who either tries to make jokes or vomit a small novel of opinion on various posts around the site, but I'm more than that. I am also a real life person who recently started writing for this dear site, and started the arduous, yet enjoyable, task of studying Game Design so that one day in the future, Ps360 can roll their eyes at something I didn't make for Nintendo. That's the dream.

    Other real life facts about me include...

    1. I am 2 years married, with a 3 year old son
    2. I'm a stay at home Dad (for a little bit longer), this helps in writing and studying.
    3. I once stayed up for 24 hours playing Street Fighter II against a gaggle of friends and family. I remained undefeated the entire time.
    4. Metal Gear Solid helped me sneak away from the police in this empty athletics stadium under cover of dark. I was at that age.
    5. I was a SEGA fanboy till the death of the Dreamcast, I'm still a little bitter about the company no longer making consoles.
    6. I play as a Centre Back in Football because Tony Adams and Paolo Maldini were my heroes growing up.
    7. I really like making lists.

    Larry's Trophy Journey

    It's been a long time since I first heard that wonderful ding! noise. It's a sound I still enjoy to this day. I may not go for Platinums (current average is just over 2 a year) all that often, but trophies have been a major factor in my continued gaming, they have ensured I seek out a wider variety of genres, and pushed games I'd normally dispatch after the credits roll just that little bit further. I can never truly regret buying, renting or receiving a game from Plus when I get the compensation of trophies factored in.
    I attempted to start over with a new profile late in 2013, but I was lured back to my sonofvenom profile because it is part of my gaming story now, a tale of late nights, all dayers, frustration, wonder, joy and many, many litres of beer.


    Current Trophy Goals

    Plat XCOM
    : Enemy Within
    87% Complete

    Plat Murdered: Soul Suspect

    You are an eclectic motherfucker. Battle Royale and The Road. Johnny Cash and 30 Seconds to Mars. Almost Famous and Die Hard. The Sims 2 and Unreal Tournament...wha?

    How am I supposed to pigeonhole tastes like that? I must define you, but alas, I cannot

    Looking forward to reading more of your adventures into gaming land, and life in general.

    Cheers Good Sir! Jack Of All Tastes is me!

    I have this constant urge to see, read, play and listen to as many different things as I can, regardless of genre. I'm a magpie of media.

    There were certainly more books I put in the same bracket as those five, like Metro 2033, 15 Minutes, City Of The Dead, The Rats, The Stand and Lisey's Story. I also really adored Steve Martin's The Pleasure Of My Company, really delved into the mind of someone who feels socially fragile. Same goes for film and TV, keeping it to just five was maddening as I had to cut some fine stuff like Punch Drunk Love, Queen and Father Ted.

    The highlight of my late Friday nights back in the day. The whole Star Wars In Their Eyes skit, and the various toy-based movie parodies were low budget mental genius . Loved their Radio show as well. Heartbroken when both of those things ended.

    Is it bad if at first I thought this was a trophy list for a new LLL game?

    Great setup so far, can't wait to read more about your gaming adventures. Big props for Timesplitters 2 shoutout; I personally can't stand FPS, but there's something about 2 (and 3 for that matter) that spoke to me. Between the challenges and the sheer amount of characters you could unlock, me and my sons played that forever. We used to spend hours making maps for us to run through, 4 player split screen, always on the lookout for end of match awards, good times indeed.

    Getting the reference alone is pretty good! Kudos!

    I think I summed up how I feel about Timesplitters 2 (Future Perfect was pretty damned great too!). It is a FPS made for consoles. Those unlockable characters were insane! It remains my biggest gaming wish to see 'Splitters revived, and kicking arse. As long as they didn't make those unlockables into microtransactions!

    Oh, and cheers for the praise, I hope to get a bit more in depth as I go along. Already started adding the reviews to my A-Z.

    Thanks man, I went for games that had an impact over time, instead of the basic greatest games list. A plus for this is that I can add a game I couldn't fit on the list, every birthday (as the 32 comes from my age), rather than chopping and changing every five minutes (because I would).

    It was nice doing it as I got to re-live some old memories, and with some games, find an excuse to go and play them again!
