Going to go down the explorer route in ED...
So chucking in something to get my rank up.
And throwing in a rank up in Rocket League, as that will take me a while...

In Progress: Elite: Dangerous - Surveyor Explorer rank

@Mini - I think it took me close to 100hrs to get to Veteran. At around 160hrs now, I am almost to Expert.

I should do this as I don't intend to buy any new games this year and I want to instead focus on cleaning up my backlog. Over the last year or two I went through and arranged for over 100 games to be deleted from my Steam account (you can do it yourself now, thankfully!), because I had realised they'd either not captured my interest (for example, games I had purchased in 2012 and only played for 1 or 2 hours to this point) or I just knew I would never play them again. So I am now down to owning less than 60 games on Steam (all games that I feel really good about) and a large number of those games are nowhere near complete. Putting a dent in that and making my past purchases worthwhile is my goal for 2016. The list below is really just for my own reference, but if I make it even halfway through I will be happy.

The 26 (In intended order of completion)
1: Rebel Galaxy - IN PROGRESS
2: Rocket League (Full AI Season) - COMPLETED
3: Just Cause 2 - IN PROGRESS
4: Aliens vs. Predator (Marine Campaign) - COMPLETED
5: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition- IN PROGRESS
6: Lost Planet 3
7: Tomb Raider
8: Fallout: New Vegas
9: Batman Arkham City
10: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords
11: South Park: The Stick of Truth
12: Shadowrun: Dragonfall
13: Magrunner: Dark Pulse
14: Out There Somewhere
15: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
16: Deadlight
17: The Witcher 2
18: Legend of Grimrock
19: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (Story)
20: Unreal Tournament 3 (Story)
21: Orcs Must Die 2
22: Torchlight II
23: XCOM: Enemy Unknown
24: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (Career)
25: Supreme Commander 2 (Campaign)
26: Company of Heroes (Campaign)

Listing your intention is pretty hardcore, especially with the play order put in. I've got my list, but I'm treating it as a product backlog with the intention of grabbing whatever suits me.

My plan, at least at this stage, is to have 2 games simultaneously in progress, and when I complete one I have another lined up to start right after.

On that note...
Completed
Mirror's Edge

In Progress

100% Liberation on JC3
I'm going to count this as finished, because for some reason my game keeps crashing at a certain point in the campaign and I can't seem to fix it. Took me ~25 hours to do. I feel accomplished.

I missed this comment somehow. Yeah it is a bit ambitious settign myself a list in order but I am goign to be pretty flexible on it and adjust it over time as my mood suits. It's more just to give me some direction with my backlog. Like you, I plan to have a few games in progress at once. Though if I have too many in progress I tend to get no where with any of them. So I'll probably stick to 2 or 3 and be fairly flexible with it all.

2 down, 24 to go. Though I feel like cheated a bit because I needed to drop the difficulty for the final boss fight. Methinks my general sucking at games is going to be the biggest impediment to getting finished quickly.

Completed the crap out of Black flag. First AC game I've ever synced to 100% too.
Well that's one down, soon to be two next week when RE0HD comes out I guess.

Pick a target... say 100,000 citizens... or an achievement you can get... something like that.
That is the easiest way, there are no strict rules with this, so it is something that you want to achieve from the game.

Bulletstorm is taking me longer than I expected, but I think I'm getting to the end. Trying to get through a few games before launching into Fallout 4.

Finally got around to playing A Bird Story tonight. Given it's only an hour long it's an easy knock off the backlog.

Sadly, it's nowhere near the excellence of To The Moon. The soundtrack is very good, but I didn't find myself connecting to the story - maybe as I never really cared for an injured animal as a child, who knows. Won't deter me from picking up Freebird's next game though.

100% sync and completion in Assassin's Creed: Rogue

Conveniently enough Unity seems to be at an all time low on Humble at the moment, guess that will be my next project.
