    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
    Hey, wait a minute...I don't remember agreeing to that sort of thing! Phattso is the one you should be eyeing up, for sure 😀

    I mean given i'm on the 10+2football challenge, it still leaves me way under for the year. Now that TWD is not happening, i might buy Unavowed and the BattleTech DLC, and put Torna on my Birthday list, which still leaves me on 7+2 (or 6 if i sell Octopath without playing which seems likely as i CBA with a 60+hour RPG at the mo).

    @Phattso Ha, yes I'd totally forgotten about it. Only one game bought this year, FIFA 18. I also downloaded Fortnite to see what the fuss was about. Oh, and the Nintendo subscription service with it's included games. You counting that as 20 games or 1 game bought?

    This year I have bought:

    Civilisation 6
    God of war
    Mario vs Rabbids
    Overcooked 2

    This list is potentially completely false as I have Gold and Plus subscriptions and I borrow games from friends. Game pass too. I also play free to play games like heroes of the storm regularly. Basically I play more games than ever but pay for them differently.

    I think the dlc is free rule has saved my bacon in this challenge. Just picked up all the destiny 2 stuff and I'm proper enjoying it. Needed a good grind since diablo 3 isn't tickling me as much these days.

    For the record, still just about holding out on 12. Sorely tempted to buy a new game for an impending summer holiday.... but resisting for now!

    Feels like a crack is inevitable at some point, though. I mean, 3 months left!

    Iím folding like a gut-punched whore.

    Stick me on for 8. Yokuís Island Express. It was absolutely glorious though, I loved every second.

    I can see me hitting 12. Smash, Mario Party, Fifa and Starlink are all looking peachy.

    I've been told mario party is for the kids for Christmas :( I wanted it next week. Curse those pesky kids. I bet Diablo becomes my (next year) birthday present.

    Best I get back to my backlog...

    I'm out. I'm on holiday and Dead Cells was getting on my tits a bit, wanted something else to play, so went for Into the Breach. It's not quite grabbing me so far, but hey ho.

    I think the challenge has certainly served its purpose for me. Compulsive habit hopefully curbed, I'll be buying games one at a time from now on, only when I want to play them. Steam sales be damned!

    Good luck, compadres.

    AHHH I may fold and buy the latest humble bundle. I just want it for nuclear throne and Lisa. Both have been on my bargain bucket list for games to scoop up for a while.

    FUUU..

    Better add me to the 7 list then :redface:

    I think it should only count of you've given it a proper go. I'm close to 20 hours on the app, but I'm aware most folk have barely managed an hour.

    Yeah, if you're just pissing about with the NES stuff then don't bother mentioning it. I turned on the trial out of idle curiosity, immediately cancelled it, and tried out half a dozen for about seven seconds each. Utter shit for me, I was a Speccy/Amiga bod back in the day. Wake me when they start putting arcade games from the era in there. ;)

    Oh, I went for another double-dip in Sterredenn on Switch. Already played it more than I did on PC. Regretting double-dipping on LA Noire Switch though. I've hit the same "oh I just can't be arsed" point with it that I did on the PS3 around launch time. :(

    See also FIFA18. Bought in a moment of World Cup weakness, played for about 3 hours. Double-dips. Silly.

    But I did play them - just not as much as I thought. Seven hours in LA Noire, at least three in FIFA. It's not like I turned them on for ten seconds or whatever.

    So no. They shouldn't count. Fuckers. :)

    And in the case of FIFA, technically I achieved what I wanted: I took England to the WC Final, and then fluffed it. :-D
