The Easiest PlayStation 4 Platinums of 2018

By Sam Quirke, 19 days ago
2018 was a banner year for expansive AAA titles, bold new indies and inventive VR — but it was also a year chock full of quick and easy trophy lists for those of us inclined to chase that silverware.

Below you will find a list of the games released in 2018 that we feel qualify due to a short play time or an easygoing experience. Obviously there are plenty of titles of questionable quality, but there are also some decent experiences such as the simple but addictive Devious Dungeon, the Portal-like Q.U.B.E. 2 and the inventive and moving puzzler The Gardens Between.

If you're interested in any of these titles you should check out the "Purchase" links below. If you're not happy with the current price, hit that "Track Price" button to set up Price Alerts straight to your inbox.
If you do pick up any of the games below, make sure to log your completion times (here's how) so we can keep our information as accurate as possible. Consider writing up some trophy guides too to help your fellow hunters reach that shiny Platinum.
