I hope it is okay that I host this? I haven't heard from Ash upon my question if this would be back.

Following text is taken from the original challenge of 2018:

2019 Alphabetical VG Challenge

Do you like playing multiplayer FPS, sandbox games or do you have games that you just haven't got around to playing? Then this challenge is just for you!

All game devices welcomed! PC, Play Station, XBOX, NES, Mobile, Atari, NES or arcade machines!

Its time to resurrect some of you favorite oldies, dust off the games you disregarded because you didn't like the first hour of game-play. Or maybe buy/rent some games in order to complete the challenge!

General Rules:
§1) There are 3 modes but all consist of playing at least 26 games that start with a letters A-Z.
§2) Complete by 12/31/2019
§3.1) You can alphabetize by the first letter of them game (ie. Super Mario, you can use the S but not the M), first letter of the series (Super Mario Odyssey, you can use the S or O) or first letter of the expansion (Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, you could use D or L.) If the game/series/expansion starts with THE or A ignore it and go to the next word (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, skip the T of the, you can put this under L or B.)
§3.2) If you game starts with a number then alphabetize the game as if the number were spelled out. (99 Ways to Die would be Ninety-nine Ways to Die there for alphabetized under the letter N.)

Challenge modes:
Easy: You want to make more time for video games but you are a busy person , you don't have time do this strict alphabetical nonsense.
-You may skip around the alphabet. Want to play Mario Odyessy first and maybe you will get into Helldivers later? Go ahead!
-List your games alphabetically in the forum.
-No play time restrictions (Hardcore has to play at least 5 hours per game) as long as you tried to play it then you accomplished that letter.
-If you choose a game and you don't like it at all, then choose another one or another one...ect! (Log your games changes, see example below.)
-You may list games that you have already played, but some game play is needed in order for it to be valid. (You have already completed all Mario Odyssey except for the last level. You must play some of that last level.)

Normal: Play for the enjoyment! You have spent a lot of money in the past and have quite a few unplayed games.
-Games must be played alphabetically. You must finish Game A before moving on to Game B.
-If you choose a game and you don't like it at all, then choose another one or another one...ect! (Log your games changes, see example below.)
-No play time restrictions (Hardcore has to play at least 5 hours per game) as long as you tried to play it then you accomplished that letter.
-You may list games that you have already played, but some game play is needed in order for it to be valid. (You have already completed all Mario Odyssey except for the last level. You must play some of that last level.)

Normal 1.1 - Same as above except games do not need to be completed alphabetically and there is a 5 hour play time restriction. (This mode will replace Normal mode next year. I changed it because I feel as though alphabetical order is just hard core on its own and is not needed in Normal mode. At least 5 hour game play is needed in order to make this a little more difficult than easy mode.

Example when you don't like games.
Steep - cool game, can't get steam controller to work with it.
*Subnautica - I have not a clue what I am suppose to do.
**Stellaris - 2hrs,3.25hrs

------Not necessary at all, but you can put reasons why you didn't like a particular game.-------
------Not necessary for Easy and Normal. List the hours played per game. -------


HardCore: Hopefully you did your research! You picked the games and you are sticking with it.
-Must list the games you are going to play 5 games in advanced. So list your games A,B,C,D and E before you start the challenge.
-Must play at least 5 hours or until you beat the game (if you beat it in less than 5 hours.)
-Games must be played alphabetically. You must finish Game A before moving on to Game B.
-Must log your games and play times on the forum.
-You can play an existing game as long as you play it for 5 hours. (Example: Multiplayer FPS, Sandbox, RPG's....)

Since this is the first second round of Alphabetical VG, it is (still) self-moderated.

I'm ready to go!

NORMAL MODE (the one with alphabetical order but without time restrictions). Alphabetical options will not be a problem with the ton of games on Steam that have amassed.
