Road to 100 Completed Games
I thought I'd write a blog on my Target for 2017 of 100 completed games. I know to many of you this is not a major goal, but for me it will be quite the challenge as it means 40 games in 2017, and since 2008 I've only completed 61. (not including DLC such as the TellTale / LIfe Is Strange / Lego DLC's)
Some facts first: I have a 20 month old daughter
, so playing time is limited. I travel on average 8 weeks a year with work, sometime to places with limited connectivity and I rarely play multiplayer games so apart from a few games, most of the ones I've completed have been single player only.
So why set this target. I'm currently (at the time of writing) on a 330 days achievement streak, but that's on average only 3 achievements a day partly because of the reasons above, and partly because last time I had a long streak I found it wasn't actually fun.
I was mining games for easy achievements but not actually playing the games or really enjoying gaming
so I stepped away for a while and decided to play games for entertainment, not just for the achievements and see if I could start to have fun again. At one point I did think that the Xbox 360 would be my last console and the end of 35+ years of gaming going back to 1982.
So, This year I thought - lets try and complete some games. I have many at 80, 90, 95% that I have missed single achievements on that I can go back to, and having upgraded to the XBOne there seems to be more scope for single player completion. As I complete games, I'll put some thoughts into this blog about what game it was, what I thought and also how the challenge is going.
Maybe no-one will read it, maybe I'll get bored in 3 weeks and go snowboarding ..
