Summer 2010 Gaming Challenge

With the semester finally over, I don’t have to slave away at studying and writing countless essys anymore. So now I have a bunch of free time until August 16th, when class starts back up again. While I was looking over my video game library the other day, I realized that I had a ton of games, but had barely beaten any of them. The reason for this is that games just come out so fast, and especially with the flood of the Christmas season, so many good games all at once. In an attempt to play them all, I jump around between games a lot, getting maybe half way through if I’m lucky.

I still beat some games, but that feat is accomplished far too rarely for my liking. So in order to remedy this, I’ve decided that with my newly found free time, I have a chance to beat them all. For now, this only applies to current generation games such as Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii, but someday I plan to go back and complete all of my last generation games too. Anyway, with this current goal in mind, I have gathered all of my unfinished games, and they are listed below if you wish to take a gander. There are 28 games on this list, so this undertaking is quite large and should prove to be quite a challenge. My goal is to beat all 28 before the next semester starts.

Since challenges are more fun with other people participating and to hold you accountable, I invite you along for this journey. Go to your game library, pull out all of your unbeaten games, compile a list, and then start knocking them off. Here is my list:

1) Eternal Sonata
