    If we're counting the NES Online app as part of our 10 purchases, I need to be bumped up again. Enjoying a day off work playing Dr. Mario and loving it! Looking forward to some online Mario 3 at the weekend, too! :)

    Put me up to 2, curiosity got the better of me so I decided to try the PSN+ Destiny 2. Quite enjoying shooting things in the face but it seems determined not to explain anything about itself which may lose its novelty value soon.

    Bump me up to 9, please Phatts. I'm not entirely sure I declared Spiderman. That leave RDR2, which will take me to number 10. I think.

    :-0

    The numbers are ramping up now, and we're not really into the silly season for new releases quite yet either!

    I'm up to 6, having just bought Into the Breach and Hyper Light Drifter.

    If I get 15-20 hours from those two that'll take me to Dark Souls and leave room for silly season.

    All of my purchases have been indies so far.

    Am starting this in Jan 2019 too..
    Epic fail this year but have learnt from it. Iíve practically given up online gaming, lootboxes, obsession and getting generally more crap at it have made me realise thereís more to gaming (and life) than multiplayer madness.
    Iíve brought a Switch, the biggest waste of money for a while, awful eshop full of rubbish and tbh the only Nintendo game I like theses days is Zelda (getting old n grumpy).
    About to complete Last of Us then moving onto Assasins Creed Origins.. have rediscovered single player love.
    So next year up to 5 games in hard drive at once and only buying the big games... and actually playing them!
    One game a month should be enough for me, gonna stick to it (ok 10 total)
    Right now to sell that Switch.... ;)

    So I've gone and installed that Deus ex game I got as a freebie in the roguey's key thread. I'm probably less than an hour into it but so far it's a bit ... meh!

    Will give it another shot laters but so far it's just eaten a one of my 10. *sigh* up to 8 I go.

    It's Game Over for me with my 11th purchase: Dragon Quest 11

    Year in review:
    1.God of War 3: Remastered
    2.Vermintide 2
    3.God of war (The new one)
    4.The Escapists 2
    5.PREY
    6.Red Dead Redemption 2 (Preordered and unlikely to cancel)
    7.Heat Signature
    8.Marvel's Spider-man
    9.Hollow Knight
    10.Two-Point Hospital

    Only duff purchase was Escapists 2, but had a good run and enjoyed everything else on the list (assuming RDR2 is good)

    Backlog has shrunk quite a bit and don't have anywhere near as many games on the go as I used to, so think the challenge was a success as far as that goes (even if I failed it)

    Not sure what else I fancy for the rest of the year though, Red Dead is already on the list, maybe Hitman 2, but there's not a lot else I'm dying to get day 1

    @Dougs

    Bet you've forgotten about this whole ten game thing, yeah? Shall I STRIKE you from the record, or do you want to confirm that you haven't bought any games this year? :)

    @Phattso You know, besides the online subscription for Switch (which I'm not sure if we're counting), I'm pretty sure Thingy hasn't bought anything this year. He's got this one in the bag.

    Oh. We are counting the NES shit. Fine by me! 10 hours of Dr.Mario and 2 on Balloon Fight. Totally worth it! :D

    I think the consensus was to treat it like one of those compilation sets of Atari classics or whatever. You're absolutely not getting it as a freebie, you scallywag, unless you can provide evidence of NES carts. :)

    When it starts getting into the SNES/N64 era it'll get a little more murky, but that's likely a problem for next year's challenge. Or 2022's more likely actually.

    @oibignose Ooooor, I could just whack you on four and you can pinkie promise to keep us updated? That's bloody respectable for nine months! Remember the winner gets to have sex with Rice_Sandwich or something, I'm a little shaky on the details.

    @Phattso I don't think I have.

    I've swapped, but pretty certain I've not bought anything. I can check tonight when on the PS4 to make sure I've not bought anything digitally, but pretty certain I haven't.

    @kentmonkey in the context of the thread, any new-to-you game you obtain be it by swaps, finding it on the ground, birthday gifts, etc. counts as one. It's not literally purchasing that matters, and the first billion pages of the thread were handwringing over that distinction.

    So you might be on a few. :)

    Oh hold on, swaps count as well. Let me check that then. I think I've had two, but will be able to tell via PMs when I get home and out of meetings. Might even be one, as I think the other was late last year.

    @Phattso Ha yeah, just noticed that (post above). I'll check later when out of meetings. At most two, possibly only one.

    i feel the uplift in the winning prize is unfair ... if we knew this was the reward then maybe some of us would've taken this more seriously

    But it's exactly the same as Fifa 08, right?!
