AAAAAAAAAAND WELCOME...to this ongoing blog that I hope takes off, or at least dies with dignity.
Isn't that feeling when the credits roll grand? Even better when you're treated to a really unexpected, yet really pleasant tune. Recently, I've had a really nasty habit of starting games, playing it for a bit, moving on, and not coming back until I forgot where I was. It's gotten really bad recently, and I just realized why:
I'm definitely not still hurting about them being gone. May the forums rest in peace...
Did you know DTOID used to have forums? Within them was a regular thread that allowed you to post your completed games and then someone would edit the master list and we'd see how many games we could beat each year as a community. Some people were insane (All hail Chris "Magnalon" Carter and StriderHoang) and easily surpassed 50 games. What I want is to be able to adapt that yearly thread into a cblog form for the community to enjoy and hopefully push other people like me to be more motivated to complete games and get that sweet closure. Because you finally completing a game (Or getting a Platinum in Bloodborne) didn't happen unless you brag about it!
Consider this your extra motivation to get cracking in your backlog.
The rules will be similar to the forums version. You simply list the name and platform of the game you completed as well as your total tally. And "completion" is a fairly flexible term. Generally speaking, whatever your end game is, we'll accept it. Caught all of the Pokemon in Pokemon GO? Mark it down, you deserve it! Reached Legend in Hearthstone or Elder Scrolls Legends? I'll take it, and congrats! You don't really need to list such specifics, but feel free to share. I'd also like to implement a Platinum/100% Achievement section as well, so list those if you accomplish it!
Because I know you're all super competitive
The rules are lax, and overall we're playing by the code of honor. However, here are some minor regulations:
GOLDEN RULE: This is Destructoid, we're better people here and I know it won't be an issue, but since a years worth of bragging rights may be on the line it's worth stating: Don't you lie to me. I will fuckin' find you and things will happen. Ahh, with that out of the way we can move on. <3
I am thinking of making this a list for the entire year so that you can list anything you remember completing prior to this post. And, to keep things spicy, we could do monthly leaderboards. So each month we'd crown the top three gamers. The DTOIDer in first place can declare themselves the Master of Games for the month, and most prestigiously, for the year. Imagine that, full bragging rights on DTOID for a year.
You can expect the master list to be reposted once a week. Please do post any updates you have on those new posts.
*Game tallies won't reset each month, but some people might drop off and be overtaken by others from month to month. EDIT: Haha, just kidding! We need some competition, so each month will have a separate leaderboard than for the whole year. That's more fun anyways, innit? So, starting July, let me know if you beat the game that month and I will mark that in the monthly post while also adding them to the master list seen here.
