    @Jono62 yeah that's the thing, I know none of them are a huge time sink, I just need to set aside a whole evening rather than getting sidetracked into my usual mindless ongoing service games which I'm not even listing here (GTA Online, Fortnite, Vigor, Rocket League)

    I'll give this a go again please.

    The plan is to clear my PS4 backlog before upgrading to a PS5.
    That said, I bought a game full price on NYE, it came with some buyers remorse dlc...

    1/Wasteland 3
    2/13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (finished, but going for the Platinum as I enjoy the battles a lot.

    Just brought Crash Bandicoot 4. Different enough from AC it should keep things fresh for a while.

    The only Ďnewí thing Iím playing currently is:

    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (PC)

    Played the original when it was first released, quite fancied going through it again, then saw the DE was also in my Steam library. I donít remember buying it...

    But on the list it goes!

    @Samildanach got ma beady fuckn eye on you this year cupcake.

    My game is cyberpunk. Admittedly it was on last year's list but I'm still playing it and it doesn't feel right that the next 100+ hours of gaming will be unaccounted due to a rounding issue.

    The other 2 that were on my list will make it back on this year in due course but later, sans the stupid challenge that was set for Wildlands.

    Yeah. What? Come at me!


    Also, hedben, Wayne, mangojoe and privatefloyd are swinging for the fences already. I like a contender

    The point? It's about picking good games and seeing them through to the end, rather than dropping them into the uncompleted pile of shame. It's also about not filling your backlog with a shit tonne of games you may never play.

    Maybe you have the self-discipline to not buy games quicker than you can play, or drop them too easily; well good for you. This is the thread for tracking your completions while simultaneously giving the impetus to cherish better games more.

    Or, it is a fun place to watch others crash and burn as their new year gaming resolutions fail miserably. Yes. That one.
    ok, thanks.

    @crashVoodoo I checked my Xbox purchase history and worked out I bought a total of 8 games last year. Might be filling my list already but since I hardly buy anything these days I'm feeling pretty good about my chances

    (Let's gloss over the fact I only completed one of those eight games, and it was Donut County which takes a couple of hours)

    Heh heh. Just see me as an innocent pigwhipper trying to honestly survive the challenge....with a sinister giant duck shadow looming in the stygian gloom.

    Erm, just realised... I collect the free game each week from the EGS. That doesn't count, does it?

    I've added the rule that games acquired from subscription services just go into backlog. They only count if you play them beyond the 2hr mark like any other backlog game.

    Count me in, I basically do this anyway and the chat in here is fun

    Still playing from my uncharacteristic splurge before Christmas...

    1. Octopath Traveller
    2. Ministry of Broadcast
    3. Final Fantasy 10

    I completed Broken Sword 5, Roki and Pikmin 3 before 2021... All Great games, Octopath is a worry, the first 25 hours were great but I can feel it fizzling out without notable story beats to pull along what is a fun battle system.

    I'll give it a go

    In hindsight, I see my error. Especially how I was thinking earlier how much I'd like to play Vader Immortal this evening.

    Ah yes. I didn't want to overwhelm all the no-hopers with your gleaming perfect record. You are in the list now.

    If anyone else has been missed off the list on the front page then speak now....or later, its all under control definitely.
