The Last of Us has been heralded as one of the best video games of all times and for good reason. In its ten years of being a Playstation exclusive, Sony's first party developer Naughty Dog has released the original version on PS3 in June of 2013, the PS4 Remaster in July of 2014, the game's sequel in June of 2020 and now with the premiere of the HBO series, Naughty Dog has remade the 2013 game "from the ground up" exclusively for the PS5. Most of the content of the game is the same but with a beautiful new look all around. Game characters more closely resemble their motion capture (and voice) actors, ray tracing and fidelity improvements make every scene so much brighter than the original and sets, furniture, debris and enemy designs have improved greatly. This last improvement, and the different trophy requirements are the primary reason for this guide as collectibles are in slightly different spots and there have been six new miscellaneous trophies added to replace all the difficulty and multiplayer trophies from 2013.
My difficulty rating for this game was decided more in regards to the collectibles than any other possible roadblock on your way to the platinum. The game can be played on Very Light up to Survivor as you see fit and playing on the lowest difficulty will still get you all trophies you need in one playthrough of the main game and the Left Behind DLC that is already available in the game (and can be played first if you desire). Anyone familair with the game from previous versions will have a very easy time and all missed trophies or collectibles can be obtained through chapter select or a second playthrough on New Game Plus if you wish, but currently it is believed that the five Workbench Tools need to be collected in one playthrough for Sharpest Tool in the Shed
Thankfully for trophy hunters or anyone who may be playing this game for the third or fifth time and would just like to breeze through the game to relive the captivating story without the stress of two playthroughs and the need to play on the highest difficulty on New Game + for the platinum (to say nothing of the thirty hours plus of multiplayer that was needed back in the day) - Fear Not! The Last of Us Part I only requires one playthrough on whatever difficulty you are comfortable with, be it Very Light to Grounded, you can enjoy the game as you wish.
Much of the work you will need to put in to this platinum is with the collectibles, and as there are a lot of them, I offer the following playlist for all teh Collectible Guides as well as a few extra trophy videos for you to use:
The Last of Us: Part I - Collectible and Trophy Guides - YouTube
Step I: Play through The Last of Us
If you are new to the game, even if you feel familiar with the world through the new HBO series based on the game, I would suggest a blind playthrough on whatever difficulty you prefer. This will mean you will miss many of the collectibles and may miss entire portions of the game.
If you would like to finish the game in one run, then feel free to bring the difficulty down to Very Light and follow along with the linked collectible guide series as you play through the game, so you don't miss too many of the 238 items including notes/artifacts, optional conversations and jokes, training manuals, workbenches, workbench tools, shiv doors, comics, pendants and safes to open. Please keep in mind, it is believe that the five Workbench Tools that appear in Bill's Town, Pittsburgh, The Suburbs, The University and the Bus Depot need to all be picked up in the same playthrough to count towards Sharpest Tool in the Shed so check that trophy guide for all the collectibles in the game and DLC so you don't miss anything.
Completing this step should earn you the following:
Savage Starlight Fan
Sharpest Tool in the Shed
Build Em Up, Break Em Down
No Matter What
Step II: Clean Up any missed collectibles
After you finish your first playthrough, you can return to chapter select and see the chapter and sub-chapter breakdowns of all collectibles. Consult the linked YouTube series in Sharpest Tool in the Shed for any missed collectibles and clean up any you missed. As mentioned in Step I, please do your best not to miss any of the five Workbench Tools so you don't require a full second playthrough for this step. Regardless of which step you complete all the main game collectibles, you will still have 14 optional conversations and 14 Artifacts to collect in the DLC, as well as the final set of jokes Ellie will tell so don't worry if you still have those trophies left to complete before the next section.
Also, if you happened to miss any of the five miscellaneous trophies from the main game, this step would be a good time to finish those up if needed. Please check on In Memorium , Lights Out , Waterlogged , Left Hanging and Who's A Good Boy?
Completing this step should get you the following:
Who's A Good Boy?
Something to Fight For
Prepared For the Worst
Master of Unlocking
Endure and Survive
Step III: Play through Left Behind
Please Note: You will be given the choice to play Left Behind first or The Last of Us. I suggest the main game then this portion (originally DLC to the game) There are a few spoilers in the DLC that explain the state of some of the characters from well into the story, while also flashing back to events that happen before the main game, so I feel it works so much better after the fact.
Left Behind is a much more pared down experience with only two of the five chapters involving any real danger or combat and the whole experience only taking about an hour to play through. That being said, the DLC still contains 14 Optional Conversations, 14 Artifacts and one set of Ellie's Jokes that need to be collected for the last three collectible trophies, as well as five other trophies tied to various activities Ellie can accomplish either in her chapters with Riley, or alone in the more current chapters. Check Sharpest Tool in the Shed for all the collectible guides and the corresponding Left Behind troophies listed below. If all other items have been cleaned up in previous steps, you should be able to finish this section and receive the platinum.
Completing this step should earn you the following:
