Steam Challenge: Oh Sweet Jesus, What Did I Sign Up For?
I often feel this pang of guilt when I look over my Steam list and see games that I’ve bought and never played. My number (101 games) isn’t much by any means (my friend Lasers has 247) but, I’m somewhat ashamed that I’ve probably only really finished maybe a quarter of the games on my list.
Then this appeared on my Facebook newsfeed.
“Beat every game in my library? Can I do it?” I pondered to myself, forgetting that I’d only been awake for an hour and thus am probably too tired to actually realize what the fuck I’m taking on.
Looking over my games list, I do notice some games that I can’t really “finish”; MMOs, only multiplayer FPS games. So, with that in mind, I add only one caveat: games I start MUST have a definite ending. I see Skyrim being a massive problem for me. While I’ve finished the main storyline before, there are a butt-ton of side quests to do. What counts as beating a game? Do I have to 100% it? Get all the achievements? Jesus Christ, what did I just sign up for!?
I plan on logging some Let’s Plays while doing this so you can see my progress while also updating you on the blog and Facebook page. If I can get Twitch to work, I might even do some live streaming. Obviously, this is a massive task and it’s probably going to take me all year to do it so I’m wondering who thinks I can do it, who thinks I can’t and do you think we can get Waterhouse to take bets?
Now, what game to start with?
