The way we're classing them is (physical or digital) :-

Class 1 – Never fired up

Class 2 – Played for less than 20 mins (Doing a Matt)

Class 3 – Main Story/ Campaign incomplete

Class 4 – Unfinished Business eg, Cheevos, Trophies, Sidequests

The more I read this, the more inspired I become. I don't think I could abide by the rules because I'm far too impulsive and undisciplined.

That said, it has made me reassess the four foot stack of game boxes sat behind me and pick up Deus Ex again (which was pretty much a class 2) and now I can't put it down. It's all the XBLA ones I really can't face finishing. But if anyone's got that isometric Lara Croft game or ilomilo I'd welcome the opportunity to co-op it.

Im much the same as Dash ( no discipline  embarassed ) but im more than willing as well to help out PS3 or 360 on the co-op  side of the Year of Shame challenge if that helps any one out.

I'll give Skyrim a go with you all in December, may even start before then as it is a Class 2 game for me (well may have played half hour or so lol)

Do I need to pick up the DLC before December, or will I be okay playing without it?

Dashboxer…

The impulse buying is the main driver behind me (and maybe the others) taking on the challenge. Its going to be a matter of willpower…

 

Oh balls… I just had a thought…

The Dawnguard DLC adds a Vampire questline, and the Hearthfire adds a Minecraft/Sims element to it.

 

Both will expand the game, however I'm pretty sure you'll have plenty to do without them smile

Starting my POS tonight, have updated the blog with all the games listed.

http://adyhd.co.uk/about/

 

Two questions I thought of.

1. If my son gets a new game, can I play that?

2. Skylanders? Does the trade in rule apply to figures?

It'll go down the Midlife Gamer Extra feed – which isn't yet on the iTunes storefront but you can still have a subscription attached to iTunes (or your client of choice as it still has an RRS feed) – we'll make sure all details about how it can be accessed along with the other Extra shows

It will be on iTunes but not straight away, however should be on the front page once it's uploaded smile

As for game of choice, I'm currently playing Sleeping Dogs (not exactly on the pile, but trying to stop it going onto it). Once that's done, it's when the fun starts smile

MW3 and Borderlands are top candidates with a possibility of War Hammer which I'll also use for the Charity event coming up

I've made a start on the pile with Portal2 and Forza 4. I'm undecided whether to blast through and make all the class 1s into 2s or go through making each game a class 4 one at a time…

Found most of mine are class 3, so I'm going to try to start by getting all of those to class 4 or 5 before I start on any as yet untouched games.

 

That way I can resign myself to playing the game I pick in full, before I play something else.

Had my eye on the whole YOS challenge since it was first mentioned and I think it’s a great idea if you can stick to it but personally I couldn’t ever put myself through something like that.

 

I have a POS but I think its there for a reason, I don’t have any Class 1 or 2 games in my collection and the main reason for this is simply down to the fact that if I don’t get on with a game in the first few hours I generally put it down.

 

I get bored easily and a list of games that have met there untimely end due to this are Witcher 2 (PC and xbox360), Lollipop Chainsaw, KOA:reckoning, Spec Ops: The line, Darksiders 2, Sleeping Dogs and a whole bunch of steam games.

 

These are just the games that I still own not to mention the ones that I have traded in. I just have no desire to play the games as I lost interest in them. It’s not even a financial thing either I can afford these things so why deny myself something I enjoy. That may change if I ever start a family but a year without any game purchases of my own accord………Best of luck to you guys but I like shiny stuff laugh  

 

You're so wise… Like a minature Buddha covered in hair!

The reasoning behind my inclusion in this is that I simply cannot justify having such a extensive PoS any more!

I used to work in Game and took advantage of the discounts (especially with pre-owned stuff) and thats where my bad habit began. Now buying things on day of release just seems wasteful to me when I know I have in excess of 100 titles (across many platforms) that also demand my time.

If my PoS was full of crap, then I would not feel so bad but its not, and therein lies the rub!

So, if you check the front page of the site, the first YoS Challenge podcast is now up for your listening pleasure. Take a listen to get the full lowdown on the rules and stuff. Anyone else feeling manly (AKA stupid) enough to step up?

I've made early inroads into the pile, having got Portal2 up to class 4 and sonic3 to class 5. I also started on battlefield BC2 last night. It made me sad to select Normal difficulty, but I think its necessary if i'm going to get through the pile!

Yeah I know I selected Normal but I'm thinking I can reduce the pile of shames of the category 1&2s then come back to take care of business. Though I probably won't
