    @Phattso, @rice

    Looks like this was missed. Unless it was DENIED :o


    It was your lax use of "15-20 hours" played. I mean, if you don't know with any specificity how long you've played then you're probably just making that number up anyway!

    Your desperate throwing of a hat into the ring of supporting docrob's own RIDICULOUS claim to have made decent progress with Cultist Simulator over 15 hours (which needs easily 25 hours before you can legally claim it was the reason you plucked your own eyes out of your skull with a spoon) just goes to show the levels you'll sink to in order to further your own game abandoning agenda.

    Or Rice just forgot.

    The FFXII story is a bit meh which isn't helpful
    This is what I'm also struggling with. The battle system is refreshing (although I still prefer the Xenoblade games' system), but the story just isn't driving me forward much. I'm still early on in the game though (just did the Tomb of Raithwall - and I had to look up the name of the place as I had already forgotten what it was called...).
    Turns out I didnít miss the clan guy, the higher level hunts donít unlock until youíve done about 10 rank 1 or 2s. Unlocked them now.

    Having said that I canít be bothered to keep playing and playing this, so Iím heading off to what I believe is the final dungeon, altho a glance at a guide makes it look bloody long. Sigh.

    Havenít really needed to change my gambits in about 10 hours of play apart from to add the odd spell to my white mage here and there.

    Monk played on switch, 15-20 hours is as accurate as you can get.

    Yeah, if you're relying on shitty tech to track your playtime. Real Pig Whippers have a fucking stopwatch. Per game. I personally have a wall full of them. SO NO EXCUSES FOR INACCURATE TRACKING!

    Can Mario Rabbids come off my list? I completed it this evening. What an excellent game! I loved every minute of it and I will be persisting with the outstanding challenges, secrets and possibly even perfecting every chapter. It's so fun to play and the characters really mix things up.

    That's 2/2 for Ubisoft this year. I can't believe how much I enjoy Trials Rising and I can't believe I put this one off for so long. My favourite 2 games of the year so far. I have no idea what I'm going to play next. I'm too poor to play anything new. Perhaps I need to push on with FF7 and just finish it, rather than savour it.

    Are you saying you secretly have more than games on the go or is it a really small wall (or really big stopwatches)?

    Picked up Crash Team Racing on Friday, so that'll take me back to five.

    I'm aiming to get 100% on the Adventure mode as I managed it back on the PS1. I had more time then/had better reflexes/was used to hard games so I may revise that depending on how tough I'm finding it (one race and done? :D).

    Having a blast with Crackdown 3, and now really interested to try other co-op thangs on the GamePass like Sea of Thieves. But I have no slots free, and can't see myself being able to get shot of CODBLOPS4 any time soon because... well, how can I ever 'finish' an MP game that I'm shit at?! :D

    Countdown to doom for me, I think. Dragon's Dogma, Beat Saber, and Virtua Racing are my other three games. I guess V.R. will be easy enough to clear - already won the first two races, but nowhere near the third - assuming the 20p a go rule for arcade games still stands.

    Credits rolled on FFXII! Enjoyed the final battles, although didnít really find them tough at all, just let my team fight it out on autopilot.

    I may be on the failure list but Iím back down to 5 games, and some big finishes in there game wise this year.

    Right no more JRPGs. Fire Emblem is an SRPG right?!

    Finished God of War at the weekend. Credits have rolled and though I would like to platinumb it, it had outstayed itís welcome. Great game though. I got 1% more on the trophy completion than my mate so unless he starts it again I am done with it for now.

    Could you remove "(Maybe) Resident Evil 4" from my list?
    I decided to not purchase it just yet. Instead I bought Cadence of Hyrule :)

    @Saul_Iscariot just a head up: God of War was one of my ten games last year. I would normally have done as youíre doing and binned it when the credits rolled. Instead I played on, and the endgame was something I played far more than I had the story mode. It was awesome. Recommend you give it a go. :)

    As a failure, anything left on your plate at year end gets added to the start of next year's challenge.

    I was hoping you were going to force him to physically eat his remaining games. I guess the word 'plate' got me s little excited. Still, I think it's a good idea for a punishment.

    Progressing quite well on Wargroove (on Act 5).

    The difficulty has ramped up considerably recently and has gone from a guaranteed S rank to a couple of failed runs followed by playing it safe for a B.

    I like it but it is not as good as the best Advance Wars titles. (Better than the last one though and I much prefer it to Fire Emblem).

    Heís a Spurs fan, as per his name. He just pretends to be a Gooner for arcane reasons related to piss poor decision making in his gaming life. ;)

    I think youíve done enough to take it off the list, but in the spirit of the thread you should definitely dig a little deeper. Thereís a completely different kinda gold in them thar hills. :)

    I know I never put it on my list, but lads and ladettes, I made CHAMP on Rocket League - For those that don't know, it means I'm in the top 3% of players worldwide. Which is nice.

    So what I'm going to put it on my list. Then take it off immediately with 15 gold bloody stars.

    Could I possibly have MK11 removed please oh please? I finished the single player story ages ago and have spent a fair whack of time pissing about and I'm quite satisfied. It's a game I will dabble in forever more but with fighters I normally ping ping back and fro to them as one when I want to break some skulls open.

    Soul Calibur is still on going though as that has fairly meaty single player content so I won't consider that done until I've finished both LoS and Chronicle modes.

    Ping Ping? Is that the stage name of Chinese comedy porn actor?
