    Fuck it, he's right! In factwe should count an Indie game as 1/10th of a game, making it the 100 Game Indie Challenge instead. ;)

    Dudes - you're either in it for the right reasons (extracting more from games/saving cash) or you don't want/need to be in it. If you're bending rules on Day Two it's probably not for you. Leave it to us pros.

    \twitches at Steam sale...

    I would get Farcry 5 but there will be so many side-missions and things to find on the map it will probably count as at least 2 games in the list of 10

    Far Cry 5 was causing me some consternation, as I have a soft spot for the series... then I remember that I have The Witcher 3 + DLC, FC: Primal, AC: Oranges, Fallout 4, Shadow of War, and Dragon Age: Inquisition on the pile o' shame so I probably won't need another open worlder this year.

    \twiches again

    Yep. Ten aint going to be easy. I play so little these days that† I'll still be playing wolfenstein 2 in april.

    Although, it has been fun, so it's more about getting time to use the tv to play. :(

    @TheLastJimBob no one's stopping you, Jim! For me it's about curbing an increasing out of control spending habit, spending more time playing games instead. But hey, if you want to go full abstinence, more power to you!

    I definitely bought less than 10 games last year, ďfreeĒ PSN ones aside. Iím rapidly running out of steam with the microtransaction rammed triple A shite of gaming of late.

    For me, the thrill of a new game is rapidly lost as I move on to the next big thing. Invariably it's then an effort to return to the previous one: a vicious cycle.

    This is still going to make me exited about buying a game (probably more so), but will encourage me to stick at said game for far longer!

    Just came to report that I have not bought any games yet this year.

    I did buy Civ VI for the ipad before Christmas (to get some gaming in while with the in-laws..) and can confirm I have played the shit out of it. Partially because waiting for the AI to do its turn after a few hundred turns takes so fukking long...

    I think that between: PUBG continually being updated for Xbox / PC; a new season of Rainbow Six Siege (not sure if paying for the new operators counts as a game purchase.. but I probably have enough in-game cash stored up already); and the backlog of VR and Xbox games - I think I should be set... I also look forward to returning to some co-op Division and Wildlands (now in 4K!).

    If there is a new Halo game I will definitely get that. RDR2 I can probably wait - unless there is a multiplayer component that is better to do from the off, and I am going to wait and see on Anthem.

    Ok, sign me up as well, Phattso.

    I will say though that I kickstarted and therefore bought Kingdom Come: Deliverance half a century ago and will *not* let its release in a few weeks count.

    Also, Monster Hunter: World only counts once even if I buy it twice.

    Damn you you all to hell.

    Still not bought any games. Go me.

    It says "buying only 10 GAMES in 12 months (2018)" and not "making only 10 purchases" ;)

    4 days in and I have not bought anything yet. Still waiting for Monster Hunter World but I might get Kingdom Come Deliverance if it's any good.

    I'm on a roll.

    I don't even have my switch now as well. Well I won't have it for a few months anyway.

    OK, sorry about being lax and adding people to the first post. I kinda got distracted oiling the Murderbot's mechanisms in the Advent thread! I just glanced over the last page or so and tried to pick up some new names - if you're in the gig, but you're not on the list, drop me a PM and I'll add you.

    My intention behind listing people and, more specifically, grouping them in tens was to give people a sort of built-in support network. Of course we'll all be in here and talking about it, but I was thinking that people in each specific 'group' could pay extra special attention to each other... and rat out anyone known to be CHEATING THE SYSTEM! :-D

    On that subject, I nearly cheated the system last night and bought Flame in the Flood on Switch which I'd been umming an ahing about last year. Got as far as the checkout, when I realised that I was telling myself it didn't count because I had intended to buy it in 2017 but forgot. FFS ME! To the other nine in my group: watch me like a hawk, I've got form.

    My sugar crash is hitting hard and all I have to comfort myself is a mahoosive backlog.
