    Assassins Creed Odyssey
    Smash Brothers
    Spiderman
    Donut Country

    @Phattso

    What about the rewards you promised for 2018's noble heroes who managed to stay strong and keep their heads while all those around them were losing theirs?

    For fighters you can attempt various goals such as beat the single player campaign, play with every character, play 100 online matches, perform every special attack or whatever else seems fun and challenging.
    Yeah, if someone came to the thread and said "I've got 40hrs in this thing, I've played five of the characters to the end, and have a 3:1 win ratio in FOUR BILLION online matches" then I think it'd take a real wazzock to deny them a completion. :)

    Cool. All of last year's heroes will additionally receive six new games from me on January 1st.

    IT'S A TRAAAAAAAP!

    @Rivuzu You should have better taste in games then. BRANCH OUT, GENRE SOLOIST! ;)
    I CAN'T BRANCH OUT, YOU WONT ALLOW ME TO, MIMIMIMIMI.

    Nah honestly, I'll probably just do something like "Is this game dead/dumb/meta bullshit/no competition? Dead game, retire".

    I'm this close to doing that on SC6 already.

    Put me down for this one and let's see what happens. I may yet fail this year's challenge when I look at the sale...

    This will make more sense (for me) if II carry over a few games I want to finish into the new year.

    IN.

    Like these new rules. Though how are defining 'finishing' a game? If we decide we can't be arsed, then it's gone, right?

    Iím sceptical about how well any definition of ďfinishĒ will work with the games I play...

    ...but count me in anyway!

    Update 23/10/19

    Playing through Horizon Zero Dawn. It's ok-to-good. I like the main plot progression and Aloy as a character but I am being repelled by any hint of busy-work in open world games now. I kind of wish I was back to exploring in Breath of the Wild again.

    Bought and completed Untitled Goose Game. It was my most anticipated title of the year and it didn't let me down.

    Bought and completed (got to the credits of) Celeste. Thanks to everyone who recommended.

    Bought the Shadow of the Colossus remake on PS4 to play once I'm done with Horizon.

    🏆 erniewhatbert ( 🦆 🦆 🦆 _ _ 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 🎯 )
    🦆 Ballistic NG, Horizon Zero Dawn
    🎯 Red Dead Redemption 2, Hyper Light Drifter, Bomber Crew, Red Strings Club, Subsurface Circular, Deltarune pt 1, Persona 5, Windjammers, Untitled Goose Game, Celeste.

    NB I had my own challenge to not pay money for games this year and to only go through backlog and use credit from Christmas and Birthdays. That challenge failed in September with £11.99 spent on Shadow of the Colossus.

    @OnlyJoeKing if you canít be arsed then you have chosen poorly and that slot is lost FOR ALL TIME!

    Hmmm. Interesting.

    What about if I buy a game, but pretty quickly discover that I hate it and couldn't bear the slog of actually finishing it. Can I formally abandon it freeing up the slot, or will it sit there shaming me for the rest of the year?

    EDIT: Ah, this may have been answered above...

    This sounds pretty good. It might be an interesting idea... ooh look, a 20% off coupon for Uplay games.

    Brain: please buy a good game, please buy a good game...

    I think I'll buy Trials of the Blood Dragon and never play it.

    @crashVoodoo just like last year, if you send me your updates I'll be keeping track in the second post of the thread.

    I guess I can play. Might as well start today eh.

    1) Destiny 2 (Completed single player campaign)
    2) Pokemon Lets Go (goal complete main game/gyms)
    3) BattleTech Flashpoint DLC (not sure on criteria yet)
    4) Torna DLC (finish main story assuming I get it for Christmas!)
    5) blank

    As usual I am not including FIFA as itís not completable, I just duck in and out now and then. But I WILL include PES this year given I keep buying it and never really playing it.

    Amazingly, there's nothing in the sale that I want. I may get away with the 10 after all. :)

    Well, I managed this year's challenge perfectly. If we'd been following 2019's roles this year, I'd still have 3 slots open.

    Count me in!
  • Deleted user 21 December 2018 21:52:27
    I'm just not going to buy any games at all in 2019. I must have about 800 I still need to play, about 6000 if I count the games I want to play through an emulator.

    Do I win?
  • Deleted user 21 December 2018 21:57:42
    I do want to buy the Prey DLC though, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Tetris Effect, the Persona games I missed, the JRPGs I missed last gen, and...

    I'm going to fail.
  • Deleted user 21 December 2018 22:13:10
    My list :

    1. Diablo. But I've played over 100 hours already, so could class as "done" though I'll probably put another couple of hundred hours in.
    2. Oxenfree. Finish it
    3. Okami: Finish it
    4. Free
    5. Free.
  • Deleted user 21 December 2018 22:13:17
    Sounds like a plan! Got 6 games 'on the go' at the moment, but could probably trim that down in time

    Got a SNES classic for my birthday recently too (playing through Earthbound at the moment mostly), probably count the SNES as a single slot? (Think that's how we treated compilations in the 10 games thing)

    Count me in, my plan for next year was to keep the backlog as light as possible

    Iím effectively going to use this challenge as an extra push to Ďattack the backlogí and therefore the titles I am looking at starting with are all XB1 related and are:-

    1) Assassins Creed: Odyssey (finish)
    2) DOOM (finish)
    3) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (finish)
    4) Alien Isolation (finish) - had this on the backlog for YEARS
    5) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (finish) - Picked up the GOTY but have never touched it....

    Yeah count me in please.

    Despite not taking part in 2018 I have enjoyed lurking in the thread, and it made me consider/wince at my purchases.

    I've more time to play games in 2019 but less cash to spunk.

    I don't think I understand. People are nominating games on their list that they seem to own already. Surely only games you buy in 2019 go on the list?
