I have a problem; I have way too many games. It’s true. Like many of my PC brethren, Steam is the major contributor to my scrolling game library. My only real dilemma is: I’ve played only a handful of them, and I’ve only completed less than half of those.
I realized my silly compulsion this past Winter Sale and tried to limit my spending, which really didn’t happen. I have over 200 titles and well over 50% of them have not been installed. Ever. My entire gaming “career” I have only completed maybe 15 games. I have what most doctors, mainly myself, have diagnosed as “Game A.D.D”; so I have decided that something must change.
I’m issuing a challenge upon myself to complete every title on my Steam, Origin, uPlay and any other physical version of PC/PS3/PS4/360 I own. The total listing is currently roughly 260 titles across the listed platforms. I have completed some of the titles already (Bioshock: Infinite, Spec Ops, Max Payne 3, etc.) but to add to the challenge I’ll complete those I’ve completed on a harder difficulty, if there is an option for that. Any of the titles that include a single player campaign of any sort will be what I will need to complete to classify the game as “completed”.
Now there are some oddities that pop up on these lists: MMO’s, online only titles and sandbox titles. With MMO’s I will reach max level on at least one character. Online only titles such as Battlefield, Team Fortress 2 and Chivalry I will achieve either at least 50% of the achievements or reach top level of “ranking” for the title. Sandbox titles like Garry’s Mod are unique. I will attempt to reach 50% of the achievements for titles like this as well.
This list will also include all new titles that I add to the list regardless of the type of game, all falling under the proper categories. There will be some new additions fairly soon such as South Park, Infamous, Final Fantasy, etc. For anyone that wishes to join me, or monitor me on my adventure follow me on twitter: @neverfraid, join me on Steam, Origin, uPlay: neverfraid. Battle.net: neverfraid#1633. Finally Ps3/PS4/360: theinternat.

where I’ll be streaming all of my PC endeavors.
Another thing I will be doing for each game that I complete is writing a review on the title. I’ve always been an avid writer and what better way to pair the two of my passions together. You can find my reviews here, or on the blog: http://corgis-and-games.tumblr.com/
I will warn you, I don’t do horror games very well (there are a couple) and I yell a lot at my games pretty consistently, just ask my fiancée. So if you want to hear me scream like a girl or yell at everyone ruining my “experience” feel free to laugh at, or rarely, with me. I’d be happy to have you along for the ride.
Let’s get with started!
