Gaming Goals for the New Year – November 2016 – UPDATE

This month just came and went so quick, I can’t even believe it. As you can probably tell I’m not going to be meeting any of these goals this year. I way over extended myself this year, but that’s ok. Sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some. While it may have been a losing type of gaming year, other things were better. It kind of felt like a trade off in a way, but no one is here to listen to me babble on about random stuff, you want to see my breakdown so here it is.

2016 Gaming Goals

Have a total of 80 platinum trophies.
– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 62
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 65
When it came to platinum trophies this month I really hustled as I played a couple of games that had some pretty easy platinum’s. As always I will reiterate the fact that I did not just play these games for the platinum trophies, that I actually did want to play them. It just happened to be that the platinum’s were easy ones. Anyway, a platinum is a platinum and I got three this moth so go me.

Have a total of 8,500 trophies.
– Starting # of Trophies: 6,542
– Ending # of Trophies: 6,772
Look at that number this month? I really feel like a gamer this month since I had such a huge hall on those trophies. I mean, just look at them! True, 102 of them did come from my Name is Mayo, but the others did not and there are still a lot of them too. I’m really really hoping I can at least hit 7,000 by the end of the year.

Have 120 games completed at 100%
– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 99
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 104
While I may not hit the 120 that I wanted this year, I at least surpassed the 100 mark for these games and I consider that a good thing.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%
– Starting Completion Rate: 52.01%
– Ending Completion Rate: 52.96%
I can’t believe I’m so close to hitting 53%. I mean, if you think about it I’ve been struggling this whole year to reach 52 and here we are so close to 53. It really baffles me but I’m pretty happy. I think that overall I made a lot of progress even though I didn’t come anywhere close to the 75 that I wanted.

Start and get the platinum trophy or 100% completion on 30 backlogged games
– Starting Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 30 That Were Listed): 2
– Ending Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 30 That Were Listed): 2
I really really hate my backlogged games. The good news is, I didn’t really pick up all that many games this year on sale. Was it me or were the games just not there this year? I mean I found a couple of good buys, but nothing that good. Anyway, my backlogged list of games thanks me as I should have more time to play them now.

Get the platinum trophy or 100% completion on 20 already started backlogged games.
– Starting Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 20 That Were Listed): 4
– Ending Number of Backlogged Games Completed (Out of the 20 That Were Listed): 4
This number also stayed the same this month again because I haven’t played all that much other than Skyrim and the occasional quick game here or there. I even stopped playing Dragon Age: Origins which I couldn’t even believe myself, but when you’re limited on time that’s what happens.

Only pre-order 5 new games and save the rest for Black Friday and holiday sales.
– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 4
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 4
This number stayed the same because I didn’t pre-order anything again. I was supposed to pre-order a game then didn’t and then they released the pre-order information on Mass Effect: Andromeda which I thought would really kick my ass into place and get my pre-order in but I’ve just been meh on the pre-orders.

With this year being as crazy as it was, I’m kinda happy it’s all over next month and I have a whole new year to start on. A lot of these goals are going to change for next year as I have already been planning on what I’m going to be adding onto this list and taking off. Of course you’ll have to wait for that, but for next month I just plan on doing what I’ve been doing. We’ll see how everything goes and what goals I actually do complete next month.
