July: Steam Sales
Hey, you! You know how you sometimes buy games on sale, but then never get around to playing them? Let’s not do that this time. Play and finish something you bought/will buy during this Summer sale. If you’ve already finished all the games bought during this sale or didn’t buy anything - congrats! But maybe you still have some unplayed games from the previous sales that you could save from the depths of your backlog?
You can see a list of the previous Steam sales here - any major sale with the duration of at least 5 days counts. To see what you bought during the sales, check your “Account details” and then click on “View licenses and product key activations”.
Which games bought during a Steam sale will you play this month and during which sale did you buy them?
You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!
Name | Achievements obtained | Playtime | Status :-: | :-: | :-: | :-: | :-: name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished TOTAL: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games!
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
