A thread for people that are trying to play 52 games in a year. Tell us how you're doing and what you are going to play next - claim a post and update us on your progress.
How do I take part?
Claim a post (you may need two later). Write down each game and your thoughts about each one. Here's an example of what good looks like, and format below as an example:
Anything new this year?
I'd like to collate some stats as the year progresses so to that end completion dates would be especially useful. Any additional context, such as hours played, review score, review body or platform are at your discretion, will be awesome to see and give me more data to play with.
I also plan to go back to the traditional avatar Hall of Fame, and have it run across multiple years going forward as a badge of honor for long term backlog-beating consistency.
How do I know when I've completed a game?
That's up to you, it could be completing the game or playing 3hrs+ if it has no ending or is a MP game. You can do replays, as long as all the games are completed in 2018.
Do I have to record time?
No, though most platforms (Steam, Xbox, Nintendo, etc) will now do it for free!
Do I have to review or comment on the games I complete?
Not required but very much welcomed. A few words and maybe a quick score does wonders to share your impressions with other users as you go. Full blown mini-reviews aren't necessary.
Do episodic games count as a single game or X amount of games?
That's up to you. It's alright to count something like Life is Strange as one or five games. Your choice.
Can I finish a game I started in 1998 and count that?
What should I do once I've completed the challenge?
Shoot me a PM with a link to your post that shows all the games you've completed. I'll make you thread famous.
Do board games count?
They do not. Vidya games only in here.
Is there a deadline?
What are those medal icons I see on avatars?
That's the Resetera 52 Games Challenge Medal™, achieved by beating the challenge on a given year. The number within the medal represents each year you've beaten the challenge since 2018. That's right, consistency and commitment comes with glorious numerical rewards.
Woah that medal is super cool, can I get one for my full sized avatar?
It's awesome you want to rep the thread around Resetera, so sure here's a version you can slap on!
