It's time to get ready for a new year, a year that we hope will be great for all of you! A year with lot of love, good fortune and happiness for all of you and your loved ones. But off course a year full of videogaming!

For this purpose and the succes of this years challenge we are repeating the challenge!

The Goal:

Let VGG'ers beat at least 5 games which accumelate to at least 50 hours of game time.


The Rules:


1 Enter a geeklist item in the geeklist before starting the challenge, games you beat before entering the challenge count but only for the regular challenge. Only games and hours played in 2017 count. To let them count for the hardcore challenge you need to enter the challenge before playing the games.
2 Optional: You may make up a list of videogames you tend to beat this year. If you are able to complete this challenge with the same ten games you have listed you will be eligable for the hardcore challenge microbadge.
2-1 As soon as you choose your list and updated your geeklist item then copy the list and post it as a comment under your geeklist item. Do not change this anymore as this is the way we can check if you kept to your list and are eligable for the hardcore microbadge.
2-2 You may add 3 alternate games that to this hardcore list so that if you get a game that you really don't like you don't have to play it to the end. Alternates have been limited to 3.
3 Play videogames!
4 As soon as you beat a game, tell us about it on VGG. Where you talk about it is up to you. This can be as a short review (we like that a lot) or just on the beaten videogames geeklist, but it could be in a play thread on the videogame page, ... but talk about the game, that's what VGG is for.
5 Adjust your geeklist item entry and make a list of which game you have beaten and how long you took to do it.
6 As soon as you have beaten 5 games and have at least 50 hours of combined gametime (you can play shorter games but need more entries then) you will receive the Complete challenge microbadge.
7 If you either hit at least 10 games beaten and got 100, 150 or 200 gamehours you will get another special microbadge for that.
8 When you enter the challenge or hit a goal, post about it in the thread. I don't monitor the list.

You can find the thread here: The 2017 Videogame Challenge!

Microbadges that can be earned: - new ones have been ordered

mb - earned by participating
mb - earned with 5 games beaten and 50 hours of gametime
mb - earned with 10 games beaten and 100 hours of gametime
mb - earned with 10 games beaten and 150 hours of gametime
mb - earned with 10 games beaten and 200 hours of gametime

AM2R: 5 hours (15 to beat, 10 in 2016)
Transistor: 11 hours

Firewatch: 9 hours
Shadowrun Dragonfall: 33 hours
New Super Mario Brothers Wii: 20 hours
Batman Arkham Asylum: 40 hours

Total Hours:

336

= Not beaten
= Beaten

Some thoughts on the list:

I wanted this year to dive into sequels of some games I have enjoyed. So you can see that reflected in Shadowrun Dragonfall, Dragon Quest 8, Transistor, Batman Arkham City, God of War II, AM2R and Metroid Prime 2.

Hitman is included as a safety valve of sorts, since I can get mobile gaming in much more readily. AM2R and Metroid 2 are in the alternate list since I am worried about my ability to complete those games. If I do, that is a huge bonus to being able to complete the challenge. If I can't beat the games I can still have a chance to complete the hardcore list. Costume Quest in my alternate list is another safety valve as I can easily beat the game if I run into challenges somewhere. I have no doubt about my ability to complete DQ8, but the huge time commitment is somewhat daunting. Happily I already have some 20 hours in on DQ8, so that will help take the edge off. I also included several 30 hour games this year, last year I tried to keep them under 20, we will see how that works out for me.

Hardcore list:

ABZÛ. A short, (hopefully) pretentionless art game. Should be a smooth ride. (finished, 16-02-17, 98 minutes; unfortunately I was mistaken about it being pretentionless).
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I did one playthrough, which I almost completed. I should round that one off, then do a second playthrough for the list.
Dishonored 2. Second playthrough, high chaos with Emily. I'll probably do a third playthrough too, to get some achievements, but that's no longer for the list.
Divinity: Original Sin. I want to play this with my daughter, so hopefully we can find the time.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. I started it and played for about an hour, after which I got to take my first in-game decision and promptly died. Looking forward to it!
Portal Stories: Mel. I played it two years ago on "story mode" difficulty. I now did an "advanced" difficulty playthrough (finished, 25-05-17, 11 hours).
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (finished, 08-01-17, 28 hours of which 14 in 2017).
Tales from the Borderlands. This was a Christmas present here on VGG. Should be fun.
Undertale. (finished, 09-04-2017, 7 hours)
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. (finished, 25-03-17, 140 hours for the base game, 20 for the Hearts of Stone DLC, and 20 for the Blood and Wine DLC; also finished a playthrough on Blood & Broken Bones difficulty and one of the base game on Death March! difficulty, for a total playtime of about 400 hours)

For the alternates, I pick three games that I do not own yet (two are not even out), and that all should be pretty challenging. However, I am probably going to play them all, so they should be good for the list:

South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Torment: Tides of Numenera (finished, 12-08-17, 37 hours)
Tyranny

Also played:
98 Cards (finished, 4 hours)
Bonsai (finished, 3 hours)
CrossCells (finished, 2 hours)
Day of the Tentacle Remastered (finished, 5 hours)
Deus Ex (finished, 45 hours, with GMDX installed)
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider (finished, 22 hours)
Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist (finished, 1.5 hours)
Firewatch (finished, 4 hours)
Frog Fractions (finished, 45 minutes)
Hook (finished, 56 minutes)

The Lab (finished, 2 hours)
Monster Loves You! (finished, 45 minutes)
Massive Chalice (finished, 15 hours)
Off-Peak (finished, 31 minutes)
The Old Tree (finished, 16 minutes)
Planescape: Torment (finished, 33 hours)
Portal (finished, 2.5 hours)
Portal 2 (finished, 6 hours)
Renowned Explorers: International Society (finished, 11 hours, though several more replays put me at 86 hours)
Sigils of Elohim (finished, 1.75 hours)
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords (finished, 50 hours)
Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (finished, 1 hour)
The Writer Will Do Something (finished, 15 minutes)
Torchlight II (finished, 35 hours)
XCOM: Enemy Within (finished, 30 hours)
XCOM 2 (finished, 35 hours, second time, 30 hours)

Okay, we're nearly 1/3 of the way through January, time for me to finalize my list. He said, now having edited the list thrice in the past 10 minutes:

WE ARE ALWAYS AMIDST AN RPG, AMIDST AN RPG, AMIDST AN RPG:
1) Risen 3 BEATEN! - 59 hours
2) Aztaka - BEATEN! 3 hours this year
3) Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing (6 hrs in) -- Servers are back up, but I find myself in the mood only occasionally.

Game in which I'll likely single-handedly top 200 hours:
4) Warframe - Given how much I play this, my goal has advanced to: Beat every level on the map AND get every warframe, although I hear the last few are quite difficult, but what the hell, let's make that the goal. -- Nope, burnt myself out on this one. Finished the map, but haven't gotten all the frames. The fact that I'm considering spending platinum to get all the frames just to call it complete is sad.

New games:
5) Crosscode - apparently an unfinished game. I sure can pick 'em!
6) Life is Strange
7) Remember Me (last-minute substitution pushing Grim Dawn to the "Want to play, but not hardcoring")
8) Grim Fandango
9) Valdis Story
10) Recettear (had played the demo a while back, never the full game)(last-minute substitution - blame Jythier for talking about enjoying it.)

Alternates:
A) Deponia
B) Wolf Among Us
C) Tales From the Borderlands

Other games I want to play but not included in hardcore list:
Shadow of Mordor
Mirror's Edge
Mass Effect 2
LA Noire
Freedom Planet
Grim Dawn

Games unlisted that I have beaten this year which means I'd have easily beaten this challenge if only Past Seth had any idea what Future Seth wanted to play:
*Soda Dungeon
*The Beginner's Guide
*Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
*Chantelise
*Victor Vran
*Spectraball
*Guild Quest
*Aveyond: Gates of Night
*Spaceplan
*Last Word

Updated for end of 2017. I didn't put time in a wide number of games, but holy crap I didn't realize I'd put quite as much into FS17!
Note that I haven't tracked mobile games. I've got nothing against those who do, but I just don't feel up to tracking that. On mobile though I've been playing a lot of The Battle of Polytopia, Hill Climb Racing 2, Pathfinder Adventures, Star Wars: Commander, Knights of Pen and Paper, Onirim, and some others.

2) Papers, Please (8 hours) - 6.6 hours
