I did actually request the removal of 0% games from your trophy list, even suggested to do so up to 5% (because who cares if you've completed 5% of a game, I know I don't).
I often look for 50% or higher when looking for someone to add to my friends list for multiplayer invites.
I used to have about 15-20 games with 0% from the PS3 era.
Ended up buying a PS3 and getting platinum before Sony brought about the ability to remove 0% games.
Oh well.


50%? that's pretty high. I'm guess they are all hardcore gamers....

Most games will net you 48-50% or higher just for completing the single-player campaign (when there is one).
The exceptions are fighting games and "collections" (e.g., ".hack//G.U. Final Recode", "Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection", etc).
Collections try to force you into completing at least two games before you hit around 40% and the gap between 40-50% are minor trophies that could have been collected as part of each game.

In other words, I'd just consider someone with 50% a "gamer".
In multiplayer games where people start adding me randomly is the only time I really look at percentages before adding them.

Most Recent Platinum: World of Final Fantasy
It didn't take me long on mini-games.
Thanksgiving isn't yielding much time to play, so the mini-games were the best I could do the last few days.

Started a LEGEND difficulty run on Yakuza too.

Interesting. I got 29% completion rate after removing all the games with 0% completion I do have quite a few games with 1%. I like trying out various games but completing them is of no important to me.

Yakuza? you also play Yakuza games ? They are good games (if you don't mind the JPN audio with ENG subtitle). I played 1-3 + dead souls? I have a lot of catching up with this series 4-6 and 0 and Kiwami. I like hand to hand combat style gameplay.

I think Kiwami is the remaster? remake? of the first yakuza on the ps2.

That's pretty common.
The vast majority of games most people get (including myself) end up with a brief hour of play.
Many of those hours stay only one hour and you end up with 0-2% completion for the game (via trophies).
2-10% can be earned easily just by playing the game for 5-10 minutes (see: Wolfenstein II) because you get a trophy or two just for getting to the first save point.
This is why I tend to only add those who request to be friends on PSN if they happen to have 50% or more on most games (as it shows they've played enough to understand the basics).

Yakuza 0 is a prequel to the first.
Yakuza: Kiwami is the remaster of the first Yakuza on PS2.
They're in the process of finishing up Yakuza: Kiwami 2 (remaster of the second Yakuza game) and Yakuza 6: Song of Life.
I have the platinum for Yakuza 0 and have to go through Kiwami on LEGEND difficulty to get the platinum.

I'm fluent in Japanese so the audio is fine (I happen to turn off the subtitles).
It's fun, either way.

You will get a trophy for just using the photomode in Uncharted 1 and 2 remastered

I looked it up. Yakuza Kiwami is a REMAKE. It looks a lot better than the PS2 version to be a remaster. The ps2 version has horrible loading time so I'm glad they fixed it. Yakuza 2 has a more fine tuned gameplay let see what they will do with the remake of it.

LEGEND difficulty might be a pain --especially with the enemies near the end of the game. The platinum is Ultra Rare

Yeah, some trophies are "so easy" to get that it adds that 1% and it makes it impossible to delete the game (frustrating).

Yakuza: Kiwami uses the new engine that they're going to be using in Yakuza 6: Song of Life (afaik).
It's a fun game but it's time consuming.
That leads me to ...

LEGEND is easy enough.
The platinum isn't rare because of LEGEND mode but because of the Climax Battles and the Completion List.
The Completion List requires you to play all of the minigames, get good at said minigames, and get a certain amount of earnings from gambling in the Casino and Gambling Hall.
I had to play about 200 games of Mahjong to win with a Full Straight and 100,000 sticks.
I keep going back to Kiwami for a few hours here or there when I get bored of other games.
It's one of those painfully long Platinums.

There's no microtransactions in Kiwami right? I hope they will not have the option where you can just buy Platinums. You can grind for 100+ hour for the platinum or you can just buy it for a small price..

Kimawi still looks robotic when fighting like the PS2 version

Kiwami doesn't have any microtransactions, other than a wallpaper you can purchase.
Yakuza 0 (the prequel) does have a few outfits/avatars you can get from the Playstation Store but they're all free (as far as I'm aware, at least).

The battle system is still a little clunky.
Personally, that's the charm of the series (even when I played the originals, there were better games out there).
Yakuza is a series that focuses on the intense amount of minigames and random "Japanese Life" (sic) aspects for the era they exist in.
In terms of platinum, the issue is that the "Collection List" requires you to do all minigames, all quests, and the likes.
You can, at times, miss a quest if you're not careful (as some are based on timing and others are based on storyline events that you have to do between one another).

On that note, I did get the platinum for Yakuza 0 the other night.
Work has been hectic the last few days due to a company-wide issue that I had to help take care of, sorry for the delay in responses.

They fine tuned the combat with Yakuza 2 (PS2). I don't know if they will do it with Kiwami 2 or not. It's hand to hand combat i would like it to be a bit more fluid instead of "sticking to a straight path" everytime you start a combo..

Is Yakuza 0 platinum as as time consuming ? there's no trophie to court all the hostess right? I hate the hostesses mini-game. Yes. I can grind for virtual money to buy gifts for these women but it's a hassle i don't really want to go through. The mini-game that i spend the most time on in Yakuza games is the battle tournament.

I don't think they're changing the battle system any further in Kiwami 2.
They're using the same engine for Yakuza 0, Yakuza: Kiwami, Yakuza 6: Song of Life, and Yakuza: Kiwami 2.
They'd have to make a fair amount of tweak to change the fighting system to a more fluid/polished one.

Yakuza 0's platinum was pretty time consuming.
Unfortunately, the hostess (telephone club) minigame is required for the "Perfectionist" trophy (getting 100% on your Completion List).
Like I said, the Yakuza PS4 remasters have taken me quite a long while to get platinum on.
Also, keep in mind that LEGEND difficulty isn't like the PS2 versions - you don't get all your delicious equipment/stats.
You start from ground zero.

Fun game, just that the minigames are ridiculous requirements to get the platinum.
If it weren't for the fun element of the minigames, I probably would never have got the platinums for 0/Kiwami.

perfectionist trophy? what a fitting name.

I'll get Yakuza Kiwami on Sunday. I don't want to replay the game for the difficulty so i'll just start with Legend difficulty and just unlock the rest via free roaming mode after beating the game (if still the same as the ps2 version).

This is the site i like to use to check the length of the games. 67 hours for completionist. It's less than Star Ocean 4 (PS3) (they remastered it recent in 4K and 1080p for PC and PS4).

Kiwami is a bit different than Yakuza 0.
For example, you can start a LEGEND run with New Game+ features (0, it's completely new - starting from scratch again).
It's a good game if you liked the original series, to be honest.
The storyline hasn't changed in Kiwami (nor has the plot/twists, etc).

Regarding length of time, I looked at the site you used and found a more realistic platinum time-frame.
If you look at the "Completionists" area for details about stated playthroughs, you'll find that the one that claimed to have taken 50 hours did not specify what all they were able to unlock.
The 105 hour playthrough, unlocking the Perfectionist trophy, is more realistic.
The Perfectionist trophy is always going to be the platinum blocker on Yakuza games (if they continue to remaster or come out with Yakuza 7, 8... etc).

It's like an RPG with that total play time. I beat Star Ocean 4 (PS3) and only unlocked like 31% of the trophies (after 75 hours of gameplay). :/ This is why i don't bother with getting the platinum for RPGs.

I guess Uncharted 3's platinum will be my next platinum. I'll just finish the whole series (4+ lost legacy) before starting Dark Souls 3. I like how they allowed you to start with crushing difficulty so you don't have to replay the game twice.

6 runs on a different engine from 0 and Kiwami. And that's what Kiwami 2 is using.

Anyway, last Platinum was Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash.
