Well, it's a new year so shall we get into completing some games 'round here? As always, the goal of this challenge is to beat games on as many systems as possible in one calendar year. Nothing new there.

What is new however, is that in addition to monitoring the completion of specific systems, I'm going to keep up with the total number of individual games that everyone finishes. As you can see, everyone involved has their very own box which will serve to keep up both their systems and total games beaten. I've put mine in the format that I intend to use, but if everyone could just provide me with a list of their systems I can do the legwork of putting it together on this thread. Hopefully this will make it easier for everyone to keep up with their completions, as I realize not everyone is as anal as I am in monitoring their lists. Also, I've included everyone who was involved last year, but if you don't intend to participate, obviously let me know.

I'd like to give a shout-out to Razeak for coming up with the idea for this competition and I'm honored to carry the torch that he started. Well, that's about all I've got to say here, so let the gaming begin!

You guys are all making many great points. That's one of many things that I dig about this website and it's dedicated user base.

As far as this "challenge" is concerned, perhaps I have been kind of making up rules on the fly; for that, I apologize. I guess it is kind of stupid to exclude certain completions based on the aforementioned murky rules. I figure I'll just leave it up to each individual in how they want to count their totals. @Bleed_DukeBlue, I'm going to swap Power Rangers over from a miscellaneous completion to one of the PlayStation variety, as you originally stated.

I want to keep the original spirit of this challenge alive and did not deliberately try to muddy the waters. Carry on gentlemen and I really do appreciate your thoughtful feedback.

Gonna be going after my first games soon. Was going to play Assassin's Creed first, but my current setup isn't working right now. In order to make room in the entertainment center for a returning OG Xbox, I needed to free a shelf. That precipitated my entire room getting re-arranged. 360 out, up on the bookshelf opposite with the never used SNES since it's wireless. Then, it told me the console wasn't working. Figured, I'd tried something similar years ago and it did the same thing and reverted to working order once it got moved to a more traditional position. While I wait to get the Xbox and figure that all out, I'll move on for now.

Since I'm finishing up the last Harry Potter book and then the final two movies, I'll run through the HP games on PC. Mastered the first two, I've played PoA before, but I think I only beat it once on console. Never played GoF on. I think I'll get through the 5 I have in a week. I'll probably start up Earthbound as well so I can finally play it and sell the SNES since I need the money. Only bought it for this anyways. And as I go to bed I've been going through Fire Red and I'm just about to hit the Elite 4. So by next week I'll be able to knock off two systems at the very least.

Just beat God of War 3 on PlayStation 3

Amazing game, amazing trilogy! I loved and hated the ending. I won't give any spoilers and I don't want any in return but there better be some kind of explanation at the beginning of the new one!!!

2 consoles down 11 to go

@GamersLyf Thanks for sharing as that reminds me that I was 90% through GoW2 (on the PS3 via the Saga) so I can finish that and move onto 3 and knock the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 off of my list - assuming I can beat them both. I got fed up with 2 on my way to face Clotho and gave up, but I might just swallow my pride and lower the difficulty and get it completed.

2 is actually the only one I didn't have to lower the difficulty on. Each game has a gauntlet before the final boss which is where I had to lower it. The first one I was just tired of playing and wanted to finish it, the second one only took me 2 attempts, and the third one I lowered after the fourth attempt because I was just getting destroyed

Speaking of changing difficulties, I beat Blazing Chrome via the Nintendo Switch on normal mode last night. I hesitated to put it as a completion on here, as the game supplied me unlimited continues, which made it a mere battle of attrition. I played a bit of hardcore mode today and with only three lives and three continues to work with, the challenge was ratcheted up significantly. I still plan on trying to beat it on hardcore, but for now, my normal completion is going to have to suffice. wince

I'll play racing games at very hard, usually all you have to do is get use to the physics on those, but everything else I try to play on normal then if I'm not having fun I'll lower it. Then I just don't care about trophies, side quests, DLCs, and percentages. I'll take a look at a lot of side quests and if it has a story line that I feel needs resolved then I'll do it but I've never downloaded any DLC and I don't take a look at trophies or percentages until I'm done with the game.

I know this will probably get a negative score but that's how I game so deal with it cool smile

Interesting about the mini-gauntlet before the final bosses in GoW series, I don't recall that in 1, but I beat that a LONG time ago. I'm not great with remembering to block when facing 8+ enemies, so as I descend towards Clotho my health gets whittled down. I'm fairly sure I've got it on hard though, so that sort of stinks to get that far before lowering the difficulty.

I'm with you on playing racing games on harder difficulty. I do that with the Horizon series for sure to earn more rewards since the harder you make it the better XP/funds you earn. I can generally beat the races on the first attempts against Expert drivatars, with no ABS, no traction control, sim damage, only braking indicators of the optimal line, etc. I am lazy and don't use a manual generally since I don't want to pay that much attention, but I can switch to that if necessary.
For most other games I generally play on normal, I tried the Wolfenstine series on a level or 2 above what would likely be normal and it was difficult enough at times that I questioned my decision, but I left it higher and did complete it. Since many games like to have you beat it first before unlocking the hardest difficulty I never bother replaying on that unlocked challenge - too many games, too little time.

For Achievements, I tend to hunt them for completion goals. I like collecting all the stuff the devs put into the game. It can be time consuming and distracting from the main game, but I enjoy it. I did just finish Batman AK and that series was pretty nuts with the extras/collectables but I really like the rewards of the extra story/info/lore bits you get from collecting it all. Plus it can give me more entertainment/enjoyment for my $$. I was just playing some Rise of the TR tonight and played like 2+ hours and didn't advance the story at all, instead I went around and collected a bunch of stuff in (I think) the first big area of the game, so focusing on DLC and side quests/collectables/etc is something I will often do. Games like the Arkham and TR series make that more accessible vs. more linear games like say Gears of War where you have to replay a section, those I'm less likely to bother if I missed something, but missing things can annoy me at times.

Beat another PS4 game (and my first of the year on PSVR): Trover Saves the Universe. I knew nothing about the characters/cartoon they come from, but this was pretty hilarious (albeit dark) and incorporated some neat mechanics. My first time playing a platformer in VR.

I absolutely love Rick and Morty, so this game was a no brainer for me... I wish I had VR though, thankfully it can be played without it. I should really bump that up the list... I hear it's fun to plat also, though it takes some time, even though a few of the trophies are pretty tedious.

It was fun. Most of the trophies have been pretty easy. There are a bunch of collectibles that I haven't finished finding, but the game has stage select for those. There is one rough one, but I finished it early to get it out of the way. You have to make 100 shots with paper balls on a little basket. It might not be as frustrating without VR, but in VR, your neck goes all over the place, because you pop the ball up off the floor with a controller button but you kind of have to aim with your head from some awkward angles.

Almost ready to add Q.U.B.E. to my list of completed (for PC). It's not a long game and I had started it way back in '18. I'm now 100% WFH at my desk that has my work laptops and personal PC. I share monitors for them and get on my personal device during the day to keep up with personal crap and listen to music, so I've tended to try and get away from my desk/office in my free time. Thus I've hardly played a PC title in the last 20+ months, but the only consoles I have hooked up to TVs currently are my X1, X1X and Wii. I've knocked off my X1 and 360 games already and I'm not itching to play a Wii game just yet.

I have my PS3 near 1 TV, just need to hook it up again, but knocking off a PC title is easier.

Any opinions on sports games? Like I got the urge to play NBA last night, and I just did a dream draft. Turned to my ultimate options, created a Seattle expansion team, and am 2 games into the 1st season. Options allowed trades of recently traded/signed players like most sports leagues allow. So I parlayed an expansion draft team and the 5th overall pick into a really stacked on the cheap roster rolling 3 lines deep with 4 rookie draft picks (a 3rd pick Yao Ming esue shooting ballerina HOF big man, a late 1st Shaq esque HOF dream center, a mid 2nd serviceable 3rd rotation SF and a utility Mr. Irrelevant that I could use reliably anywhere as a giant SF to a mobile stop gap center as backup/3rd minutes), 2 other rookies (one came from one of my last trades where I forced the Spurs to go over their cap, so they declined a gem backup late 1st/2nd round 6th man center. The other is another 2nd round 2nd rotation big man with some range) either starting or playing significant minutes.

I only signed like maybe 5 players, and most of them just filled up the requirements at the end of free agency. Maybe one was in the midhigh 70's, a RFA I kept and ended up re-aquiring that is 75 and the starting SG. Other couple were guys the game drafted my for summer league I though were good, maybe a 75 among them. Ended up with something insane like 35-45+ trades, almost all of them 3 way trades, or something like my last ones where I parlayed a extremely bottom rung player into a backup after about 7 trades by trading each 1-1 player in about 30 seconds, probably handling over 20 picks over that time and ending with/using like 4 extra first rounds (including a top 5-almost assuredly top 3+ pick within 2 years) and 2 or 3 more 2nds. Team is a monster. PGs can all drive, can all hit open shooters when they roll out and drill open 3's with ease, big men threaten and space the floor, if everything is clogged up feed the big men down low since they all got stupid good moves, even they participate in the half run and gun style I play especially when I get steal or intercept before they can get back on defense with the plethora of defensive talent I picked up.Even my staff is god mode. Every one locked for 4 years, all A-B in everything (sort of cheated. My last run of this game ended up with this guy as the assistant when van Gundy retired after a successful 3-4 year contract and he was the best fit I've ever had and he was spotless when I stopped playing. So I just offered him the job as HC now as backup choice and he ended up getting it), and I still have like like half of my starting payroll left to give raises and extensions not to mention the cap going up by then.

All that being said, if I say played maybe 50% of the games and simulated at least until I retired a couple of these guys numbers would you consider that "beating the game?" Or like a be a pro where you do the same and end up playing until you retired?

I love playing the NCAA football and Madden games from time to time but it doesn't matter how many years I put in or how many championships/super bowls I win its still, in my mind, an unbeatable game. Although I think we've established this as more of a to each their own type of challenge so if you feel like you can say you beat it when you're done playing then I think that it should count. I just don't think we should be counting emulators as consoles but not sports games as games.

I like extreme sports. Every once in awhile a sports game comes out I love.

MLB Power Pros 2008 (DS)
MX. vs ATV Reflex
SSX Tricky
Skate
Rallisport Challenge 2
1080 Snowboarding
Excitebike 64

So for me if the game has really good physics I enjoy it. But I don't care for the standard yearly release games.

yes i think thats more than reasonable.

a season and a championship id say is reasonable as well.


its like a fighting game, clearing with one character and beating the "final boss", like beat bison in street fighter, id say counts, all characters is fine if thats what someone wants to do but i dont think is neccessary.


as far as emu's, everyone knows my stance on that, you played the game, so count it if you want, we are only competing against ourselves year over year. i count them, but only as a game that was actually on the system.

Agree with others, that beating a season in a sports title that has seasons would feel like beating it to me. Plus like @tonymack21 said above, you're really only 'competing' with yourself, so if you consider an pro sports title as 'beaten' from completing 5 games or 50 or a season or whatever, then that's your call.

I'm not a traditional sports video game fan at all so I really can't relate. I do like non-pro sports games like SSX and with a title like that it has a 'story' or at least the concept of completing all of the different trail runs to be completed, that's how I'd gauge it. I am a huge racing game fan and those can be hard to conclude that you've 'beaten' them. Rally games aren't too bad b/c there's generally a season and set of races to complete (similar to a full season in a pro sport or all of the trails for SSX). But say the Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport series, how do you 'beat' them? Even the Horizon series games aren't clear on what it means to beat them. So I think it basically goes to the notion of when you personally consider it 'beaten' then it is.

It's not like someone is going to start playing 1 Bulls vs. Lakers or Yankees vs. Red Sox or 49ers vs. Texans game in a slew of NBA Jam, MLB the Show or Madden titles and start claiming that they've beat Madden '95, '98, '04, '05, etc. on whatever system. I mean if they do, then congrats and who cares - that's not the intended spirit of this thread.

I would agree with that when it comes to sports game finishing a season would be like completing the game... a Season would basically be the "story mode" of the game.

MMO's can be a little tricky also. I am almost 60 on my main, kinda stopped playing for awhile, I really have not played much since early December besides a little AV here and there. However just because I hit 60 does not mean I finished the game since the game really starts at 60.... I would consider it finished when I beat Naxx. You beat all the main content the game has to offer. Raids like AQ 20/40 and ZG are kinda like side story. But some could feel different and have no intent on raiding or have the time so for others finishing could mean hitting lvl 60... I suppose that's fine also. So I suppose MMO's could go either way.

I'm on the board! As planned, my first tally for 2020 is a replay Final Fantasy V for the Super Nintendo.


Final Fantasy V is "peak nostalgia" for me. It wasn't the first Final Fantasy game I'd ever played, but it was the first one I played through on my own. I had just watched my best friend play through Final Fantasy VII in its entirety before taking it on myself, and with the follow-up still a year away, I decided to work backwards and play the fan-translated ROM on ZSNES.

FFV is how I learned that so many quirks of FFVII were actually tropes. Moogles, chocobos, Holy and Meteor magic, old engineers named Cid, etc. At that time, when we were still adjacent to the 16-bit generation, the sprites still seemed colorful and expressive. The job system - which allowed you to specialize in certain abilities before equipping them to your character - was nothing short of incredible. The developers intentionally made it so nearly every boss and dungeon could be "cracked" easily with a specific combination of jobs and abilities, which turned boss fights from slow grindfests into interesting puzzles.

People criticize FFV for being simplistic compared to its older and younger sibling. Twenty years later, I was definitely a little more aware of how basic the story and its progression were. In spite of that, watching crystals shatter still makes me feel like the world is ending, especially after watching the party struggle for an hour trying to save them. While later games may have developed the personalities of each character more, this game does a good job of making you feel attached to your squad. There's no character swapping and no party swapping; your four characters are all you have, and they're with you the whole time. We didn't see another Final Fantasy game like that until many years later with Final Fantasy XV, of all things!

Above all else, though, FFV's music is nothing short of enchanting. It makes incredible use of the SNES sound hardware, so instrumentation is almost as well crafted as melody. The music used from Bartz' hometown both literally and figuratively plucks at heartstrings, and the "Fate in Haze" cave theme is probably the best dungeon music in the entire franchise. FFV's "Dear Friends" arranged album ended up being the very first game soundtrack I ever bought, and no arrangement - either from a fan or from Square themselves - impressed me as much as it did on first listen.

I played through FFV first on ZSNES all those years ago. When Final Fantasy Anthology was released, I played through it again, dealing with the lame translation, awful load times, slow battle transitions, and other emulation snafus. I was salivating over the GBA release and loved the new translation, but GBA's sound hardware ruined the sound effects and music for me, though not enough to play through the game a third time. The sound, in fact, was wildly different in all three versions on all three platforms, which had me wondering for years... Which of those effects that I enjoyed - Holy, Bahamut, Meteor - was actually the sound the developers wanted me to hear?

For that and other reasons, I've wanted to revisit FFV for a while, but it's tough to knock out a 30-hour RPG these days with a wife, an intense job, and a baby at home. After falling down the retro hole last year, though, and with 2020 being my year of replays, this seemed like the perfect way to kick off a year of gaming. I'd play through the game on my commute using a SupaBoy SFC - not ideal, but at least the sound was pretty good - and on an Analogue Super Nt while I was at home. It was nothing short of glorious, and I'm debating transferring the save to the GBA version so I can pick through the additional content and start where I left off.

Just an warning MyPlayer for NBA 2K is really long and time consuming, it took me maybe 2 weeks or 3 to complete 1 season

Nice work, @Renaissance2K; both on your completion and enjoyable post. Everyone's list should be up-to-date.

And I totes agree with everyone else's sentiments regarding the completion of sports games. See, I'm not always an ornery jackass!

Sekiro downed. I would have been done awhile ago but I wasn't going to let the Demon of Hatred (optional butt-hole boss) live.

Well Q.U.B.E. is now complete, so that's a 3rd game and my first PC title - I will beat Portal 2 next month again for Frank's GotM thread, and likely others later as well, playing on my PC again has been alright, plus I've got more than enough games I'd like to try/beat.
There are a few hidden puzzles in QUBE that I missed, so I might do those as well and they have some speed run/DLC stuff I'll likely at least give a shot. Overall the game was alright, it tried to be a little like Portal, but the 'story' was rather campy/dumb. I spent less than 3 total hours playing it and I think I got it free or as part of some HumbleBundle I was buying for other titles. Plus I started it back in '18 and this thread got me to give it another go and complete it.

Full disclosure, I did look up a few hints from YT, but only when I got stuck for more than a few mins and could tell I was simply missing something small. I'd get my hint and go back to playing vs. watching the whole solution since I did want to solve it myself as much as possible. I only looked up 3-5 hints. I might try to complete The Talos Principle which I started a while back and is similar, as a first-person combat-less puzzle-type game. I think the Turing Test game is similar as well. Oh and I have QUBE2 on the X1 that I figured I'd try out once 1 was finished.

In my opinion, there's no shame in that. I'd rather keep the game moving along rather than come to a screeching halt because of some minor object/landmark that I overlooked. I felt like a dummy, but I probably used a FAQ to complete about 80% of Grim Fandango's puzzles. LucasArts games will tie your brain into a pretzel if you let them.

Did you buy this one for the RTT monthly challenge or have you had it for awhile? I've noticed that it's value seems to have decreased since a couple of year ago, but it's still a little steep for me.

What system would you want to count that for?

Topic   Can you complete a game for every system you own in 2020?
