So I was recently looking for things to do while I patiently wait for Black Friday to get a Nintendo Switch and my mind drifted back to the Steam Spring Sale where Valve was trying to get users to play their old Steam games again soooooooooooo
I will be, starting today, going through all me old Steam games and at LEAST getting them to 25% achievement completion
The only games I will be excluding from this are as follows:
Games with no Steam achievements
Games I have 0% achievements in (They don’t count towards completion but you can if you want to)
Games that have too many achievements (Think Payday 2 levels)
Games that simply won’t run/crash too often
I’m challenging everyone else to do the same and play some of your old Steam games you’ve forgotten about or wrote off as just plain awful.
I have complete 6 games to at least 25% just today out of my 328 game library (98 games are eligible for this)
I’ve been trying to do something similar for the past year or so. I admit that i did play a lot of HOG’s but i actually enjoy those. It’s just that they aren’t that hard to perfect and sort of inflate the completion percentage. It’s incredibly annoying with games that have achievements locked behind DLC.
no worries, no offense taken
-think i’m just saying, the “challenge”, might be more or less so/“intriguing”, depending on ones library size/age/“played” too
i recall HL2 being one of the earlier games i just quit quickly on replaying, precisely because it had gotten achievements and i wouldn’t be arsed with that then -and not replayed it since subsequently,
I feel you! I have hundreds of games and only a few hours a day to play them. I keep buying games on good sales for when “someday” comes. I just bought Borderlands on HB’s spring sale but haven’t even started it up yet. Just no time! Last week, I didn’t play anything for 5 days in a row.
I wish I could do this! The ADHD will not allow it.
I play little bits of lots of games, or obsess over one game for all my free time in a week, get it almost complete, forget about it for months, come back, feel like I have to start over.
I don’t usually forget about them. They sit there in my library taunting me. Scrolling past everything I do want to play but have no time for, thinking, “Someday…”
Then, there are a handful of games that might be awful, most of them coming from giveaways. I have to try them to see. The awful games I remove from my library. So happy that I can do that!
Even though I won’t be able to keep up right now, I must say, great idea for a challenge!
can only imagine the pain it is for some that wants that…
i think i have 1 game currently that pisses me of on a single cheevo, because it’s “just 1 left”, but it’s ridic to get because of the games clunky controls combined with the achievement conditions,
-still that “it’s just 1 left” keeps nagging in the back of my mind “because it just seems so simple” to get one single final done…
It’s okay, looking at those achievements, there’s no way i’ll get a lot of them. “Start GMod 1000 times… Waste a year of your life playing GMod… Play with 10 friends… Your Workshop uploads got ___ thumbs up…” Not going to happen, i just want to raise the completion because that 3% it’s sitting at is hurting my overall completion rate.
