July 10, 2010 Written by Andrej Cilkov

#5 - Street Fighter IV

At number 5 is Street Fighter IV. Created by legendary and famed developers Capcom, SFIV brings the legendary fighting series back to its roots by taking the beloved fighting moves and techniques of the original Street Fighter II. It earns our # 5 spot thanks to the “No Challenge Too Hard” and “Playing to Win” trophies. Once you hadouken through the all the combos for all the characters then the rest should be a piece of cake… should be.

#4 - Grand Theft Auto IV

At number 4 – and suitably so – is the fourth installment of the popular Rockstar franchise, GTA IV. While most offline trophies are easily attained, “Endangered Species” is one to remember, finding all 200 pigeons without help from good ol’ Youtube.com would cost any poor soul over 100 hours. But if that wasn’t difficult enough, the notorious “Auf Wiedersen Petrovic” trophy will no doubt cause you a headache or two.

#3 - Killzone 2

At number 3 is the preeminent Killzone 2 developed by the one and only Guerrilla Games. This Sci-Fi FPS is undoubtedly a shooter created for pros. Trophies such as “Heroic Survivor” – where you have to beat the game on elite mode – and “Valor Grand Cross” – where you have to be in the top 1% of the Killzone 2 community that week – are no walk in the park, and will have you tearing your hair out and possibly causing you to go out and buy a couple of new DualShock controllers. Thanks to many of smashed controllers, it earns our #3 position.

#2 - Demon's Souls

At number 2 is the renowned dungeon crawling RPG from Atlus, Demon’s Souls. Building a reputation for being one of the hardest games around, Demon’s Souls will frustrate even the most hardcore of gamers.  The “Solider” trophy clearly backs up this statement, being one of the trophies giving most players trouble, and you could say the same for nearly all the other trophies in the game!

#1 - WipEout HD

Last but not least, the #1 spot goes to Wipeout HD. Rarely are there PSN games offering platinum trophies but this one is quite worthy of one and with that, is not at all easy to procure. This platinum will require immense patience and ingenuity. The “Zone Zeus” and “Arcade Perfect” trophies might just be enough to send you to an insane asylum and is precisely why it earned PlayStation’s LifeStyle top spot on the top 5 most difficult platinum trophies to obtain.
