Gaming Goals for the New Year – July 2018 – UPDATE

Another month has quickly gone by as this year gets closer and closer to an end. Based on my already obvious failures and what not, I’ve started to plan my goals for next year. I’m an early planner. Anyway, I’m not here to talk about next year’s goals just yet, so let’s go over my current goals and see how I progressed with them this past month.

Gaming Goals for 2018

Have a total of 125 platinum trophies.

– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 88
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 89
There are a lot of games that are on my list of games to platinum, but I just don’t seem to be getting them lately. I don’t know if it’s from lack of trying or I’m just losing interest in the games that I’m playing. Anyway, it’s been a tough road to even crack the 100 mark, but this month I did make some progress and got the platinum trophy for Far Cry 5! This is all because of @tjarvinen86, so thanks again buddy for helping me get those last trophies I needed for the platinum.

Have a total of 10,000 trophies.

– Starting # of Trophies: 8,410
– Ending # of Trophies: 8,479
I had one really good week of trophies this month where I was able to get 24 trophies, but the rest of the month was just meh. Once again, I couldn’t pass the 100 mark as I inch my way closer to the 8,500 mark each month. At this point the 10,000 goal is totally not going to happen, but I would be happy with reaching 9,000 which might happen. Either way, I’m close to my milestone 8,500 trophy so I’m kind of happy.

Have 175 games completed at 100%

– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 134
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 134
Even though I got the platinum trophy for Far Cry 5, I still didn’t actually get the 100% making this number stay the same because I refuse to buy the DLC. I am playing some games at the moment that will be 100% done when I finally complete them, but it’s all in a matter of time.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%

– Starting Completion Rate: 54.70%
– Ending Completion Rate: 54.69%
Have I said how much I really hate this number? I got the platinum trophy for a game and this number went down…again. Since I can’t seem to do anything good with this number, all I really want to do at the moment is just keep it above 55%. I don’t’ even care if it’s 55.01%, I just want it past this 54.whatever% bullshit that it’s been stuck at.

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

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 2
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 3
I started Far Cry 5 when it came out day one this year and finally finished it so it gets added to this list of starting and finishing new games that aren’t in my backlog. A small victory here and I hope that I can at least bump this number up by a few more before the end of the year or at least get halfway there.

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 started playing Assassin’s Creed Syndicate this month, which is totally in my backlog and if I keep at it long enough I might even finish it this year increasing my number from 5 to 6. I’m not there yet, but I’m hoping that I will be before the year is up. I’m even hoping that I’ll get a few more games out of my backlog, but it’s just the matter of going through some games and seeing what’s going to be easy to get out of my backlog and what’s going to require a lot of time.

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
I haven’t felt the need to pre-order anything again this month, but I know that this will change quickly as more and more games are getting closer to their release dates and I’m going to of course want them. I still can’t see this number passing 10, but you never know by the end of the year.

Once again that was my month. In the upcoming months I really want to concentrate on finishing up these games that I have in my backlog, games that have been sitting there forever and need just a couple of more trophies to get me to the platinum trophy for the game. This isn’t going to be easy as some of them are huge games and require a lot of time, but there are those rare few that will just require some dedication and maybe a day or two of my time. I’m really pumped on finishing up games in my backlog so we’ll see how it goes and as always I’ll let you know how I progressed next month.
