Gaming Goals for the New Year – June 2018 – UPDATE

So another month has passed, and it’s another month that I haven’t seen a lot of improvement on my overall goals for the year. I’ve said it before on some of my weekly trophy blogs, but I’m kind of in this weird gaming funk at the moment that I can’t seem to come out of it. I’m hoping some well-deserved vacation time in July will help me with that. Anyway, onto my goals so that we can all see what little progress that I’ve made.

Gaming Goals for 2018

Have a total of 125 platinum trophies.

– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 88
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 88
So I planned on getting the God of War Platinum, but I never was able to finish that. I kind of got bored so I put it to the side and just forgot about it this month. I did work on Detroit: Become Human and am only three trophies away from the platinum. It’ll require three more playthroughs of the game so I’m really not looking that forward to it, but it’s on my list of platinum trophies to get.

Have a total of 10,000 trophies.

– Starting # of Trophies: 8,348
– Ending # of Trophies: 8,410
I feel like I kind of did OK this month in this department. I was able to get a decent amount of trophies thanks to playing some new games, finishing a game, and continuing to play Detroit: Become Human. I really don’t know what I’m going to do with myself gaming wise next month, but at least I’m close to a milestone which will be 8,500 trophies. I will say that I know for sure I will not reach the 10,000 trophy mark by the end of the year, but if I hit 9,000 I’ll be happy.

Have 175 games completed at 100%

– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 133
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 134
I finally finished King Oddball this month! Yay for small victories, you can read my review of that game here if you were thinking about playing it. That was about all I was able to complete, but at least it’s something. The 175 is looking like a really far away number, but I’m hoping it’ll be one of those things that by the end of the year I’ll just finish a bunch of games and maybe come close to 150.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%

– Starting Completion Rate: 54.75%
– Ending Completion Rate: 54.70%
This number went down…again. I really hate this number because it’s based on not really playing new games and just sticking to a game until you complete it fully. I used to be able to do this, but lately I just can’t stick with a game that long. I don’t know if it’s because of the lack of time thing or just a me thing, but this month I am not liking this number at all.

Start and Complete 10 new games that are not in my backlog

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 1
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 2
I started and completed King Oddball which was a new game and not one that was in my backlog so another small victory this month. This was pleasantly surprising and I’ll be happy if I can make it to 5 before the year is complete.

Play and complete 25 RANDOM games in my backlog

– Starting Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
– Ending Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
I haven’t even laid a finger on my backlog at all this month as I concentrated on playing new games so as always, this number didn’t budge. I feel like I play games from my backlog to a certain extent then get tired of them and always want to move onto something new. This sucks because I hate that my backlog is so huge and it’s probably filled with games that are awesome and I just haven’t had the chance to start or finish them yet.

Only pre-order 10 new games and save the rest for Black Friday and holiday sales

– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 3
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 3
No pre-orders again this month, but as we get closer and closer to the release dates of some games that I have my eye on this number will increase. I really doubt it will get passed the 10 games this year, which is a good thing so I’m at least happy about that.

And that was my month. It wasn’t the greatest month and it wasn’t the worst month, it was just one of those in-between months I guess. I’ve been having a lot of them lately and if I can get out of this little gaming funk that I’ve been in I’m pretty sure I can start knocking out some of these goals. Well, July is a new month and I want to try to start things positive before they all go to shit, so I’m going to say that I’m going to try my best to do better at accomplishing some of my goals.
