I have this habit which has plagued me my entire gaming career. I enjoy buying games. I enjoy buy games so much that many of them never get played. I was browsing /r/PS4 today and came across a post referring to a 12 in 12 challenge to help motivate gamers to clean up their backlog of purchased games that have gone unbeaten. The rules are simple: Play the games you want to complete to completion. There is also a subreddit dedicated to the 12 in 12 challenge if any are interested in participating.
Here is my list:
- Tales of Zestria - Just started and will be my first completion of the year.
- Bloodborne - Oh god help me get through this one!
- Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection (2 and 3 only)
- Tomb Raider
- The Order: 1886
- Fallout 4
- Dishonored: Definitive Edition
- God of War 3: Remastered
- The Last of Us Remastered (I know, i know, best game ever, & should've been beat already).
- Infamous: Second Son
- MGSV: The Phantom Pain
- The Witcher 3
I am excited to get started. I picked up Tales of Zestiria yesterday and have logged about 4 hours in it and I will say it is a lot of fun. The story is top notch and the sound track is everything I expected from a Tales game. I know this is going to be a long one so I figured I would start on Tales before the new year considering I have Fallout 4 and The Witcher 3.
I am also excited to document the results. There were 2 items on my resolution list from last year that I didn't dedicate a lot of time to. The first is writing. I used to write all the time, and with my career centering around technical writing and critique, I decided to leave work at work. The second item was to beat a lot of the games I have spent money on. Well instead of beating many games I also bought a lot more so I intend on doing this every year because I know that there will be games I buy this year that will not get the attention they deserve due to whatever reason.
