52 Game Challenge

Challenge time!!!

Last year I set a challenge on 1st of January to complete 52 games before the end of December. I had stacks of games just sat there not getting played so I thought instead of the usual healthy eating resolutions I'd make it a gaming one! Anyway, I ran the challenge on Twitter, and loads of other people joined in too, 59 to be exact! And out of those, 20 people managed to finish! So I thought why not open it up a little further and see if anyone on here wanted to give it a shot? I'll still be running it on twitter the same as last year, but if you'd rather join in on here then start a post and update it each time you beat a game. I'm going to add a leaderboard to the bottom of this post so you can see how you compare with your fellow challengers too, so far I haven't even finished one :lol: !

RULES

Beat 52 games before the end of 31st December 2015 UK time. Any game, any console. Photographic evidence must be provided, just take a snap of the end screen, preferably with your username in the photo, and post it on here (or on twitter if you prefer, just add #52GameChallenge and @ninjabearhug to your tweet). No cheating allowed, I can't police this rule but if you cheat you'll only ruin the experience for yourself anyway. Emulation is allowed but please refrain from using save states. That's it, get gaming!

I've added a leaderboard to the first post, we could do with a few more forum members joining in! That said I still haven't beaten my first game yet this year...

I've beaten 3 games so far this year but will be unable to provide photographic evidence for the first two, is that a big issue? The last one I'll be able to get a snapshot of but will be unable to upload until I find the camera lead I seem to have misplaced :S

So far:

1) King of Dragons (PSP)
2) Knights of the Round (PSP)
3) Geneforge 3 (PC)

Man, people are getting serious! Loads of new challengers and finishing games quite quickly!
Let's hope it stays this way!

It's a great idea, helped me last year to play more of my collection and reminded me why I love these games.

As you may have noticed, we now have a logo for this competition which you can see at the top. With Ninjabearhug using RetroCollect as a home for the #52GameChallenge, I wanted to ensure the site does what it can to help out the challenge. I've put the word out on the main part of the site, so hopefully more entries will arrive soon.

And on that note, I'm also taking part this year :) So far I've tackled two easy favourites to get myself back in line with the lost two weeks already, but from here on out it will be a mix of favourites and new adventures.

I'm @Cauterize on Twitter, but you probably could have guessed that.

01 - Sonic 1 - Completed, but missed two emeralds

02 - OutRun 2 - Completed, Hardest Route

I will give it a go Ninjabearhug, but no promises as work and study will take up most if not all of my time this year. My finished game list is tiny over the years, so I hope to get into double figures on this challenge, heck Id be happy to get just 1 done! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lol - behind schedule. Guess I should finish my current BG2 and SR4 playthroughs on tablet and pc first. Sucks that I love rpg's and sandbox games but I'll try nonetheless. Small miracle if I finish 1 game each month - maybe mix in some Gameboy titles for easy gain. :roll:
