    I've put 100 hours into animal crossing. Can I still dip into that? Along with dirt 2.0? Looking at the rules that seems ok as I've rinsed them within and inch of their lives.
    Games you have previously rinsed don't count, even if you are coming back to them years later. The occasion when they DO count would be if you buy a NEW version of them, eg a remaster or a port to a different console/system.
    Wonderful then. I'm in.

    I feel better already

    This fucking EGS sale needs to piss off with its £10 off coupons, far cry 5 for £8, completed then ghost recon breakpoint for £17 which I'm playing through but it doesn't run too well on the laptop (not enought vram) so Wildlands for a tenner to satiate my GR fix while watching tv was a moment of weakness

    I fear I may not be long for this thread 😔 with 3 big open worlders

    Persona 5 Scramble: the Phantom Strikers is done and can come off the list. There's still a couple of optional boss fights I might go back and clean up at some point but after 80 hours I think I'll take a break first.

    The rules on page 1 state : ALL newly purchased games, backlog games, dlc, expansions, season passes etc. count. It doesn't matter whether it's a new game or an old game, gamepass, game compilation, humble bundle or whatever else.

    Picked up Persona 4 Golden yesterday, so that's my third slot taken again.

    Purely hypothetically, where do we stand on the itchi.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality? 1704 games for £3.49 or something. But all for a good cause!

    Will we fail the challenge for doing a Good Thing?

    There any good news stories about people using this thread? I really think this will go along way to curbing my backlog anxiety.

    Not at all. Feel free to directly donate your cash to the good cause.

    I assumed that would be the case (should probably have put a winky face or something at the end of my post).

    But you can never tell with the Duck. Heís just so mean!

    OK, I've just purchased 🦆Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Gold Edition for 13.99 from the latest PS sale. Plus I'm adding 🦆Assassins Creed: Oranges from the backlog. I've read lots of good things about this AC in the forums recently.

    I'm rather looking forward to experiencing RE7 for the first time as, like above, I've also read good things about it here. Seeing the RE8 reveal during the PS5 showcase event also had me eager for some RE goodness and I need to get acquainted with the new protagonist from 7 anyway, as he's going to be in 8 too.

    Good causes like that are definitely okay. Obviously any game from that collection that you start playing for more than a quick test would then go in a slot. I'm really not that mean, though I am fowl.

    This thread is exactly what you need. The buying of the new shiny has to end! You have all you need already and since games are all digitally available, very very few will disappear and become unable to buy at a later date (only possibly the licenced stuff).
    Now the backlog you already have... just focus on the games you are playing now and have an idea on which you fancy next.. and that's it! Put the rest from your mind for now, don't make any long list of what you have or spend time looking through them all. So sayeth the Duck. Breaker of bad habits.

    I was the one being mean. Iím suggesting you can just donate directly to a charity without CRASHING AND BURNING out of the challenge with 1700 games you donít need. :)

    Ah, but this way I can donate and test my resolve. When (if?) Iím not found wanting, Iíll be a Better Person/masochist.

    I must be going soft because of good causes. Phatto's answer is the correct one of course.

    Updated anyway. damagedinc, you are now officially included, the dead weight I mentioned last week have been excised.

    🎯 Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition NSW has been completed! \o/

    Still trucking with Animal Crossing New Horizons. At what stage is that considered "complete"? I've somehow managed to sink hundreds of hours already so I've definitely had my money's worth.

    Oh, I forgot that I haven't finished Dragon Quest XI (very near the end but dropped temporarily to play Xenoblade) so I have two games on the go, Animal Crossing New Horizons and Dragon Quest XI.

    Apparently when some dog creature visits and plays a concert, the credits roll. Good place to consider done I would say.

    @damagedinc
    The new one? Have you run out of games to play? Is it only available for one week? It's time to curb those game buying excesses starting today. The Last of Us 2 will wait. Maybe cheaper and patched of bugs at a later date like all new games.

    Credits rolled on Assassin's Creed Unity after a bit of a unexciting ending. The final mission was quite difficult and the last boss was fun, but the story didn't seem to be building to a massive climax. Instead it was a case of just going to get the rather dull villain in his castle. Baddy dead, The end. I'll still do the bigger sidequests but bollocks to getting all the chests/collectibles.
    In replacement of that I bought Uncharted 4 in the last day or so of its sale. Please replace AC Unity with Uncharted 4 Oh Great Leader!

    🎯 Resident Evil 4 (Switch)
    Never finished it on the Gamecube, so I'm also seeing this as an act of atonement :) For the life of me I can't understand (or remember) why I didn't finish this on the Gamecube. Even 15 years later this is still one of the best games I've ever played.
