The 26 Game Challenge: play a game a fortnight - 2016

Post by Nacimota » 01 Jan 2016, 11:38

Another year, another thread. Following on from last year, I am hosting once more...

The 26 Game Challenge (26GC) 2016 - Play a game a fortnight!

Yes, it's that time again. Following another Steam sale, you've bought/received a pile of gifts which will go straight on the ever growing heap of unplayed and unfinished games you've been amassing for far too long. 26GC exists to address this problem.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules of the challenge, which are as follows:
  1. You must complete 26 games by December the 31st, 2016 in order to complete the challenge.
Okay the rules are basically non-existent, just like before. This is because despite the inexplicable insertion of a leaderboard in the post below, the 26GC is not a competition. The spirit of the challenge is to set goals for yourself, so the strictness of the rules (e.g. what constitutes a completed game) is up to you. Have fun.

Sure, I internally kept a tally of what I finished in 2015 and it came to about 30 or 40 titles anyway.
Should be fun, sign me up.

Sorry, not 100% clear on the rules or how this works though. Do we have to designate a particular game that we are working on like you two have done however? I'm typically scattershotted amongst about 10~ or so games at a time and slowly work my way through whichever one I happen to feel like playing on any particular day as my mood changes.

Stoibs, you can do it however you like. Most of us end up with a couple in progress, but you can just post when you complete them if that's what you'd prefer.

You can list as many or as few games in progress as you want. The rules are very relaxed; this is basically just a way of motivating people to play through their games.

Sign me up. Given I've got Just Cause 3 and Fallout 4 on the go, a little encouragement to get through the main storyline rather than burn myself out with my usual wandering off to do side/fetch quests won't go astray.

I won't complete this again this year either, but oh well.

I'm currently working on Just Cause 3.

Cool, I guess if pressed at a stretch I'd say it's Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, and Underrail that I'm switching between and playing more-so than all my others.

I will join the failure train :)
Now to work out what I can add for both Rocket League and Elite Dangerous. As neither have a real end point... Hmm...

As for current in progress I'm going to add

I finished 8...

Do we just edit our original posts, or post an update each time we start / finish a new game?

Yeah, post a reply. I'm not going to go around checking if posts have been edited; if there are no new posts in the thread I won't even open it.

Ok I'm in.

Maybe we should post completion times or helpful recommendations for which games are short enough to make them easier to get finished?

You can if you like; I've found sites like HowLongToBeat to be good resources for that sort of information.

Over the last couple of weeks, I ended up making a shortlist of games from my library. I used this site to pick out a range of games (and to stop myself picking too many 40+hour RPGs). Really useful!

Mirror's Edge is still in progress, but I have also started Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (story mode).
