My Challenge: Life of Daerphen
Monty Python pun intended
So here comes another idea of organizing and digging through my backlog. After doing the Bingo Challenge this year and finishing quite early I was thinking about the next theme for my backlog. From time to time I have a look at my library via https://www.lorenzostanco.com/lab/steam/. Its actually a nice way to filter you library by many different kind of filters, not just by name.
So I was playing with the filter “Release year” and noticed that I have quite a long list of years selectable.
The idea: Go through each year since I was born, pick a game that was release there (according to the Steam Store page) and play that game.
Its all about finishing games from different genres and years. But also getting a bit nostalgic. For example with games like Monkey Island of course.
- Steam Store page is the source
- Game cannot be completed/beaten/finished before 23.04.2023
- No yet decided if I will add more years and treat this like an endless challenge. Will be decided once all years are played until then
- Years might be missing, in case no year in my library available
- Games can be swapped, especially for later years with many more published games.
So here is my preliminary list
First - congrats on getting BINGO done, that was quick! ;D
Second - that’s a great idea for a challenge! I might be tempted to
steal borrow it from you. XD
Are you going to play in order or you will play whatever picks your interest first? What were the hardest years to choose from? :3
Well feel free to join. Not gonna play them in the order of release. Especially the older ones are in my opinion to hard to play in a row. Its not about the game difficulty but the graphics sometimes are hard to comprehend ;)
Maybe years between 1998 and 2005 were the hardest. Too much nostalgia there to choose from. Before 1998 there were hardly any decision making due to list size. Also the later years are also easier to choose because of so many games. I went through the list quite random to not have too much time to chose.
I will! Also this seems like a great theme for my GoG library. :D
Haha, yeah, I can understand that. Old games can be demanding. X)
I am quite surprised how few games I have around the year 2000, I would swear there were more of them. XD In the later years I think I will need to choose quickly or I wouldn’t make my mind… there are so many games I want to play. x_x
Good luck with the challenge and have fun! :D
Really nice idea, I am tempted to try this, too! Gonna take a look at those release years :D
That’s a cool idea, would definitely steal if I wasn’t in the middle of a challenge… (but i still might steal ;) ) Good luck!
