    Iíd like to do this. Do I need to say what Iím currently playing? I havenít bought anything new since before chrimbo. Does that mean Iím all blanks? Or will I say what games Iím currently trying to finish / playing? I can totally do this after messily soiling my digital trousers last year. Totally.

    Welcome to the farce. Technically you donít have to list your pre crimbo stuff if you started it already. You might choose to for ones you really want to get through though. Up to you.

    I essentially listed my last 5 purchases. (All were before Christmas). However I knew that I would definitely finish 2 of them and 2 others are fairly short Indie games so they also had a high chance of completion. (Leaving RDR2 as a backlog contender).

    I have now completed Smash Ultimateís Classic Mode with all characters which was my only outstanding goal. (It is not 100% complete but that would be an unrealistic proposition).

    Therefore I am now down to 3 entries:
    1. Minit
    2. Oxenfree
    3. RDR2

    @wuntyphyve I started off by listing 5 (OMG what an amusing mentality), because I probably had 10 or so games in various stages of completion across multiple platforms. So Iíve written everything off, then one by one they go back on the list and get properly played, the way the devs intended. Although my rule is only one single player game at a time.

    It all goes through the list now. The list is king.

    Right then. Can I add RDR2 to my list please as I want to make sure I finish it! I'm going to confidently ask for Dark Souls 3 to go on there and it's not coming off til that platinum drops. Also AC: Origins and AC: Black Flag. That's it. That leaves me room to add one but apart from that those bad boys are getting finished.

    @wuntyphyve you can add whatever you want really, but you have to make your own lists I think hah.

    In other news, Iím really enjoying having a few rounds of Everybodyís Golf when I get home it just before bed. Very relaxing. Until I slice a ball out of bounds that is.

    And AND. Steep. Itís actually pretty fun. Not quite hitting the SSX 3 peaks of snowy brilliance, but itíll do.

    So yeah, great listicles.

    @Phattso I waited patiently for the nightly update before badgering you. But now it's badger time. I should be on two ducks (Astro Bot and Hitman).

    This post was more animal-based than I had anticipated.

    Yeah I know. Itís a lot more time consuming than last yearís challenge and I just started a new job. Should settle down into more regular updates soon I hope, but for now it is about three pages out of date.

    @Phattso I think people should keep their own lists and post it when there is a change. Then we can collectively keep track and shame those who are terrible people.

    @Singularity I agree. Was just letting Ceelion know that there was a centralised list. Itís in the second post of the thread although presently a little out of date. :)

    Yeah I had two rounds of EG last night and it's a lot of fun, glad to have it on the list.

    After a moment of weakness I have added a fourth game to my list... ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission. I had a VR session last night and decided I need to play it so picked it up for £19.99 in the current sale. I've been meaning to get to it at some point anyway.

    #1 Pokťmon: Let's Go, Pikachu!
    #2 Spider-Man
    #3 Red Dead Redemption 2
    #4 ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission
    #5 Empty

    I've cutback a lot on Destiny 2 playtime since Christmas so I'm hopeful I'll be able to get through a couple of these before the end of the month.

    Just so I don't forget, I'm going to tattoo my list to the back of my hand. I anticipate issues with this system later on but for now I can't think of one single reason not to do it.

    Am I the only one that thinks this thread used to be much more fun last year? Weíre like a bunch of accountants now.

    Second albums are always the hardest.

    I kind of agree, there was beauty in the simplicity of last year's rules (or at least there was in principle!).

    I actually think this is better. I was deathly scared of putting any games on my list, whereas now, I feel I can put whatever I want, but I just need to commit to playing it.

    @wuntyphyve woah cannot believe you put two AC games on there. Also RDR and DS4? That's some serious average length!

    I think this thread will resemble last year more come March time when people have shite on their lists theyíre never gonna clear. Oh the warm, salty, tears will be delicious.

    I am most afraid of games that turn out too difficult. I am near the end of Monsterboy (awesome game, btw.), and I am not sure I will be able to finish it. It's not on the list though.

    Can we agree that games that have technical issues can be removed? I've not even put Thronebreaker on the list yet, as mentioned above, but probably won't now, anyway, and abandon it (again) because it keeps freezing.

    The important thing is that you think you've got everything out of it that you can. If you get to the end of a game and can't beat the last boss after 20-odd tries because it's too hard, I think it still comes off your list.

    The main idea as I understand it is to stop ditching games early on because you haven't given them a chance.

    I'm hoping it'll stop me shelving stuff for the new shiny. It should also stop me picking up massive games that I'll never have the time for. It could all fall to pieces very quickly but it'll be fun trying.

    I think I'm most concerned about filling a slot with something like BOTW or God of War that I get really tired of and never want to finish. There's a real risk of having a dead game slot.
