104 Game Challenge

104

Just like last year, this year I took part in the RetroCollect 52 Game Challenge. The idea was to complete, uh, 52 games in a single year. Back in June, I successfully became the first person taking part to hit the 52 game barrier. But I wasn’t going to stop there.

With the challenge over before the year was half done, I aimed for 104 games. The 104 Game Challenge, if you will. For the less mathematical of my readers, 104 is two lots of 52.

This week, with just 16 days left of the year to spare, I completed my 104th game. Which game? Lego Dimensions.

Now, some might say that I’ve played a lot of very short games this year, and it’s true that a large number of the titles I’ve finished have been the generally-shorter-anyway retro games, mainly for the Master System and Mega Drive. However, that’s not only allowed within the “rules”, but since it’s RetroCollect, almost certainly encouraged.

That said, there are a few very long games I’ve completed – and gone well past completion – this year. No Man’s Sky, for instance. That’s over 150 hours right there.  80 on Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, over 75 on Pokémon Y, and 30-60 each on Assassin’s Creed Unity, Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Marvel Avengers, Fallout 4 and The Witness.
