Gaming Goals for the New Year – September 2017 – UPDATE

I swear it feels like yesterday that I posted and update for August and here I am posting an update for September. Next thing you know, I’ll be posting my final update for December and creating all new goals for next year. Anyway, on with my goals and how I did for September.

Gaming Goals for 2017

Have a total of 100 platinum trophies.

– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 79
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 80
At least I was able to get one platinum trophy this month and it was a milestone one with number 80. This was because of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. I enjoyed this game so much that I just had to go back and play multiple time resulting in platinum trophy number 80. I was working on another platinum, but wow is the Shoppe Keep platinum taking a hell of a long time which is probably why no one has it as of yet.

Have a total of 8,500 trophies.

– Starting # of Trophies: 7,711
– Ending # of Trophies: 7,807
Missed that 100 mark again by 4 trophies! Ugh! That is simply just annoying as hell because I was so damn close this time around. I know that 8,500 is far off because the end of the year is right around the corner, but I’ll be happy if I could at least hit 8,000.

Have 150 games completed at 100%

– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 120
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 123
This number went up by three this month and it was because I was able to complete three whole games. That was no easy feat especially with the amount of time I actually had for gaming. Anyway, at the moment 150 is looking farfetched so I’m going to say that if I at least hit 130-140 I’ll be happy.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%

– Starting Completion Rate: 53.57%
– Ending Completion Rate: 53.88%
So I kind of have a love / hate relationship when it comes to this number. After a month of this number dropping drastically, it’s back on the rise again. It’s not where it was a couple of months ago, but I feel like it’s kind of getting there. If I can hit 55% by the end of the year, which I know seems impossible, I’ll be pretty happy.

Complete 10 RANDOM games featured in my I Never Finished…Because…blog

– Starting Number of Games Played from I Never Finished…Because: 0
– Ending Number of Games Played from I Never Finished…Because: 0
Surprise because this number is still at 0. I think it’s going to stay that way no matter how hard I try and it kind of sucks. Anyway, I’m going to have to come up with a better goal next year to get some of these games completed and off of my system. Right now I’m going to say if I can complete one game I’ll be happy.

Play and complete 20 RANDOM games in my backlog.

– Starting Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
– Ending Number of completed games in my backlog: 6
I totally forgot that I had the Hasbro Family Fun Pack: Conquest Edition and there was still a game on there that I didn’t play. I bought this game about a year ago and finally got around to playing Monopoly Plus recently. This was an easy 100% that took me less than 2 hours and it also helped me accomplish a little more of my goal. I probably won’t hit 20 this year since there are a bunch of new games coming out soon, but if I hit 10 I’ll be happy.

Only pre-order 5 new games and save the rest for Black Friday and holiday sales. – FAILED!

– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 8
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 9
Another month, another pre-order and I just couldn’t help myself as I pre-ordered South Park: The Fractured But Whole. I’ve been waiting for this game for a while and knew that I had to have it day one so I put in my pre-order. Still under 15, so I guess it’s kind of a win…

That was it for the month and I’m sure if there wasn’t some stuff I can’t control like Hurricanes and random shit at work that I would have been able to at least get closer to my goals. I’m not saying that I would have accomplished any of them this month, but it kind of seems like the odds weren’t in my favor this month as I tried my hardest to play as much as possible and it just didn’t happen. Anyway, I’ll continue to work on these goals and let you know how I did next month.



  1. admire your goals for being able to complete trophies and progress on games. That has never been and probably never will be my forte’. The preorders goal is super hard with the number of great games surfacing so I don’t blame you there lol. Keep up the great work!

    • Thank you, I always try my hardest to complete games and get as many trophies as I can, but it sometimes doesn’t work out.

      I didn’t expect the pre-order goal to be that hard this year! I was totally able to do it last year, but this year there were just too many games and the year isn’t even over yet.

  2. It is an impressive set of goals you make. I’d be tempted to do it but having the Xbox consoles and some Nintendo ones leaves me having to manage my time across more than just the ps3 and 4

    • Thank you, it’s an impressive set of goals that I mostly don’t accomplish. That’s a lot of consoles, I don’t think I would be able to manage more than just my PS systems. If you wanted to set goals though, you could do yours console specific.
