Gaming Goals for the New Year – October 2018 – UPDATE

Another month has come to a close and it’s really hard to believe that it has. This has been a crazy year so far and as everyone already knows, a lot of my goals are far from being accomplished. While I’m sort of fine with this, there is that little nagging voice in the back of my mind that says that I can do better. Here’s a breakdown of how I did this month.

Gaming Goals for 2018

Have a total of 125 platinum trophies.

– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 95
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 96
While I didn’t make as much progress on this goal as I did last month, I still moved up one notch and hit my 96th platinum. Only 4 more to go until I hit 100. I’m not really sure how this is going to go seeing that I’m playing some huge open world games that require a bunch of time which is what I’m always short on. I really want to hit that 100 goal though, so we’ll see how this goes.

Have a total of 10,000 trophies.

– Starting # of Trophies: 8,759
– Ending # of Trophies: 8,854
While I didn’t hit 100 trophies this month, I came pretty damn close and I think the final two months of the year will be the nail in the coffin as I hit at least 9,000 trophies which is what I’ve been striving for since I know for a fact I cannot hit 10,000 trophies this year, but then again there’s always next year for that.

Have 175 games completed at 100%

– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 138
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 140
This number moved up two more games this month, it would have been up one more, but Spider-Man decided to add some new trophies and that game has been gone from the moment that I platinumed it. There’s no going back for that game, but I can still move forward and completing another 10 games maybe difficult, but it’s something I’m going to strive for so that I at least hit 150 completed games.

Have an overall completion rating of 75%

– Starting Completion Rate: 54.67%
– Ending Completion Rate: 54.72%
I really can’t believe how much this number went up this month. I’m seriously amazed that it did. I’m not in anyway complaining, but at this point I’ll take whatever I can get when it comes to this crazy number. This might be because I started and finished two small games, but like I said I’ll take whatever I can get with this numer.

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

– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 8
– Starting Number of New Games Played and Completed: 10
This goal is officially completed! I couldn’t be happier as at least I accomplished one whole goal this year. This is mainly because I started and finished both Doodle Devil and I, Zombie this past month. I am completely surprised by this and am just blown away that I was able to accomplish this before the end of the year.

Play and complete 25 RANDOM games in my backlog

– Starting Number of completed games in my backlog: 6
– Ending Number of completed games in my backlog: 6
I’m pretty sure this number isn’t going anywhere, but you never know. Playing two open world games at once is very time consuming and to even think about playing something different at this point is just a little insane. Even if this is all I finish this year, I’m just happy that I was able to get 6 games out of my backlog.

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

– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 6
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 7
This number only went up by one this month because I’m pretty tapped out at this point. I’m so tapped out that I won’t even be pre-ordering Fallout 76 and will be waiting for it to go on sale. It’s part of being an adult. A really shitty part, but still part of being an adult.

So that was my month. I’m over the moon that I accomplished at least one of my goals, and that I progressed on a bunch of other goals. While I’m not going to accomplish all of my goals this year, I never do, I’m glad that I was able to make a dent in some of the numbers that I came up with at the beginning of the year. This upcoming month I’m going to try and finish Assassin’s Creed Odyssey completely while going back and finishing up a few little games that have been left here and there with a few trophies needed to get while I play Red Dead Redemption in the middle. We’ll see how things go and I’ll be giving you my final update next month before my final totals the beginning of January.
