One Hundred and Forty-Two

The number in the title is the amount of games on my Steam list that I haven’t finished. That is approximately 33% of my total games. There are some I haven’t even played. After a whole bunch of Humble Bundles, Steam Summer Sales and other mass discounts, the games start to add up. I’ve always had this problem with finishing games though. Back in the PS2 era I would buy games cheap, play them for an hour or so and then get bored. (once I get my PS2 up and running again I might be able to give some of them a crack) So as I was looking through my list of games an idea struck me. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I want to finish all the games I’ve never got around to finishing. And while I’m at it, I thought it would be a good idea to document my progress.

I’ve decided to use a random number generator to decide the games I play in order to avoid choosing all the good ones first and leaving the ones I might not actually want to play until last. In fact I’ve already chosen the first game. I’ll reveal it tomorrow, alongside a description of the game and a guess as to whether I’ll actually enjoy it or not.

It’s my hope that this will be fun, and maybe slightly entertaining for readers. At the very least I’m hoping it will spawn some new ideas that I can write about.
