Over 9000, Devil MAY Cry and the road to 200
Hey guys, so I have a bit of a different blog going up this time around. Normally I write something to try and discuss or a little piece on a game I love at the time (like my Siege and Apex blog posts) but this time I'm taking a look at my own milestones and fun challenges I've been somewhat engaging in lately.

I'm not normally a person to care about milestones or take much notice of them at all and I certainly don't pay enough attention to trophies to make any kind of special activities with them, but recently during the BATH event one of the trophies on the list was 'It's Over 9000!' in the game Ruiner. I had a look at my trophy count and to my surprise I was very nearing the 9000 mark so I messaged a couple folks asking about that trophy, is it something I could avoid unlocking until the opportune moment but got no reply, however, another friend of mine pointed out to me there's another game in my backlog with a similar trophy title... 'Over 9000!' in the questionable Devil May Cry 2. This would make a much better substitute as it's the last of the bloody palace trophies, the last thing I'd be doing in the game, so as long as I earned 11 more trophies in any game prior to starting the Devil May Cry series it would be more or less guaranteed (since I was about to play Hollow Knight too). So what's a good way to make sure I get 11 and no more by accident? Play a game that only has 11 trophies of course, and that's what nudged me to play through Pix the Cat. It was all lined up and ready to go from that moment on, voila, my first ever deliberate milestone, and a goofy one at that, 'Over 9000!' became my 9000th trophy. As someone who's never done this type of thing and never actively trophy hunted etc. it actually felt pretty cool lining up this funny little milestone.

On the road to 9000 it also dawned on me that we had just entered the month of May and the ol' brain suddenly had this thought pop in my head: 'hey, this game is called Devil MAY Cry, and we're in MAY, right?' and I thought it'd be fun to not just stop at the 9000, lets get through the whole series in the month of May. Due to sporadic hours and a bit less time to game in the latter half of the month (and Apex distractions lol) progress slowed and I couldn't squeeze Devil May Cry 5 in (in fact, I technically 'finished' 4 at the very start of June) but it was a fun little achievement to strive for and again, one of the only times I've ever remotely actively hunted anything.

Now all this is over I sit here closing in on what I consider the biggest major milestone I'll ever hit, and that's 200 platinum trophies and looking at the one major game on the horizon I'm most looking forward to it seems only right that I intentionally try to place The Last of Us Part 2 as that 200th. So, it's on, the road and partial race to hit 200 before I am in possession of that sweet new game.

I consider 100 and 200 to be the 2 huge milestones, 500 and 1000 being the next 2 but let's be realistic, 11+ years to reach 200, that would mean 11 more for a total of 22 years (assuming the same pace when in reality it'd probably slow) for 400 and that's still 100 away xD. We don't even know the system will still exist in 11 years time, so I consider this as also my LAST major platinum milestone so I guess it's a big one.

So what's the plan? Well, this is where I show my non-trophy hunting ways, there isn't one. The hope is so long as I am at 199 by the time I boot up The Last of Us Part 2 then it's all good, if not... I don't know, My Name is Mayo? xD. Considering I went back to PUBG recently and 2 of the glitched trophies successfully unlocked (long past the requirement I must add), that could be something I end up finishing soon depending how cooperative the glitchy trophies want to be. I have also been thinking of tackling Payday 2 on PS4 as a couple people I know have started it and it'd be fun to join in. I'm spontaneous so we'll just have to see what happens, hopefully I don't have to do some dumb trophy whore game to make the numbers up, and likewise, hopefully I don't hit 199 too soon and have to put other games on hold until I own a copy of The Last of Us Part 2. I'm hopeful this one will line up (and hopeful the game lives up to the standard of the first).

It's feeling like some weird end of an era lately, I'm closing in on or have already reached some of the last major milestones I'll ever hit. It's not like I won't be gaining more trophies or playing games but the reality that there's far far fewer milestones in front of me than behind me. For some extra examples, I hit level 40 recently, I do not foresee myself hitting 50 and if I do, that's probably my last ever milestone. I'm closing in on 10,000 trophies, no way in hell I'm hitting 20,000. Heck, someone even pointed out to me that I reached 1,000 ultra rare trophies of all things on the website PSNProfiles, doubtful 2,000 is on the cards (though who knows these days, accumulating ultra rare trophies has never been easier, I can't believe how many ultra rare trophies are in some of the easy ass games on my list). Literally every major rounded milestone I've been hitting lately is one where the next big rounded milestone is borderline unreachable ever for me xD.

But yeah, there's a little incoherent ramble about some milestones and activities and stuff that's been going on recently. While I'm at it, I'm curious to hear about any of your upcoming or recent milestones and if you've done anything or are planning anything for them, is that a regular thing for you/is it super common in the trophy hunter community? Also, which milestones do you consider the biggest? Personally for me use the 1, 2, 5, 10 logic except for levels, which I treat every 10 as a major milestone. Typically the biggest ones I consider is when you get an extra digit in something, 10, 100, 1000 etc.
