January 2020 Wrap-Up
Had a very solid start to January as I venture off on my goal of my first 100,000 GS year and also hitting 500,000 before the Xbox Series X launches. The second goal is a stretch, but we will see how it goes. Here are the stats for the month of January:
Games Started: 17
Games Played: 43
Games Finished: 21
Achievements Unlocked: 389
Completion Percentage Gained: 0.88%
Gamerscore Gained: 20,000!!
I decided to round out the gamerscore at an even number and stop at 20,000, which makes this my best month ever by a long shot! My best month prior to this one was 11,000 back in March of 2017.
I only finished 16 of the 17 new games since I wanted to come out even on the gamerscore... the 17th game will be wrapped up in February along with a few others. The biggest unintended benefit was the improvement to the completion percentage. Since my score was already pretty low (55% range), it was easy for it to grow since I started and completed so many games. We'll see how this continues throughout the year and into the next generation of consoles!
I plan to keep chugging along on the gamerscore and will be aligning my February goals with the BCM February Team Challenge. Here's the punch list for February... all 8,700-ish gamerscore of it:
