Summer 2017 Backlog Challenge

Mission 100%: Summer 2017 Backlog Challenge

 

Special thanks to damon8r351 for originally hosting the challenge.

If you're like me, you've got an insanely large backlog and have no good reason you keep putting it off and watching it grow. Why not do something about it? Like previous backlog challenges, this event is a challenge to the community to select between 5 and 20 games from your backlog and complete them to 100% starting 00:01 AM EST June 1 and ending at 23:59 US EST on August 31. 

Now, here are the details and rules. 

  • Event Philosophy: This is a firm commitment to complete the games you say you will within the time limit, so choose games you know you can finish, and select a manageable number. The minimum for the event is 5 games, and the maximum is 15Once the event begins, the list is locked in. You can change your games as much as you want until 23:59 EST on May 31. If you want to add more games to your list or want to continue after finishing your list, you can add games to your list up to a maximum of 15. The object is not to just earn the platinum as applicable, but to reach 100% trophy completion for it. DLC is included and you will have to complete any new DLC that's released during the challenge. If you don't like DLC, don't put a game with it on your list. You can start late if you want, but you will be committed to whatever you put on your list. 
  • Eligible Games: Any game with trophies are eligible for the event, with a few exceptions. One game can have a completion percentage of up to 25%, but the rest must be 20% or under. Unplayed games and 0% games are fine as long as they're part of your backlog. Since I've been asked about it, preorders will be allowed as long as they're released before June 30. You can also do a game where 100% is unobtainable if you feel strongly about it, but you must complete all obtainable trophies. Individual episodes of a game that has separate trophy lists, such as in early Telltale games or Broken Sword on the Vita, count as a single game; therefore, Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse counts as 1 game, not 5. For this event, you may complete a game you have previously done for a different platform or region before the start of this event, but you may not do the same game multiple times during this event. Cross-saving a game for an easy completion will also be ineligible.
  • Eligible Participants: Anyone is eligible to participate, provided you are serious about completing the games you say will. However, if you have flagged games on your PSNProfile, you are banned from participating unless you hide the games, get unflagged, or use a different profile. No cheating!

I would like to join this next summer session too if ok. Will be carrying over some of my games from the current one, in particular Kingdom Hearts. I know I am a pretty average gamer as far as skills go but I didn't expect some of the boss fights to be as hard as they are. Still very enjoyable game so far

Do games you have started work on a blank account(one unconnected to PSN) count? I have Dragon Quest Heroes at 10% on an unconnected account and plan to transfer all the trophies when I platinum the game. If that's not allowed, I can start it up on my main at June.

 

Needless to say, I did leave the Spring event (under another account) in bad form but I am definitely feeling this! Already started logging all the games I have and which will work. (Two Kingdom Hearts games at 0%, World of Final Fantasy at 14%, etc.) I might join this event.

 

EDIT: Nevahmind, I already came up with a good list that I can hold off until June - I own 60% of the games.

I have way too many games in my backlog for my liking, plus a bunch of games I own that I haven't even started yet (thanks, flash sales and playstation plus) and I'm finally going to commit myself to doing something about it this summer since I'll have plenty of time, and because I finally bought another PS3 so I can dive into all of those PS3 games from years ago that never got completed.

 

I'm down for this, here's my list:

15 games total

 

PS4

- The Deadly Tower of Monsters (15%)

- LittleBigPlanet 3 (14%)

- Ether One (3%)

- Sniper Elite 3 (7%)

- Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (10%)

- Wolfenstein: The New Order (bought, unplayed)

- The Order: 1886 (bought, unplayed)

- Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (bought, unplayed)

PS3

- Far Cry 3 (24%)

- Darksiders (2%)

- Dead Space (bought, unplayed)

- LA: Noire (bought, unplayed)

- God of War (bought, unplayed)

- God of War 2 (bought, unplayed)

PS Vita

- Rocketbirds (bought, unplayed)

 

Lots of bought and unplayed games on this list, I finally want to dive into some of these. Thanks for hosting this event and giving me the motivation I finally need to complete my games!

Here, I think I'll join this event with a whopper of ten games - luckily half of them are really easy platinums that can be done in a day with guides and all are PS4 titles. (Still not got the money to fund both PS4 and Vita.) Other than World of Final Fantasy, the rest have not even been played yet, so they have no trophies on the account yet.

  1. Kingdom Hearts re: Chain of Memories (1.5+2.5 collection)
  2. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix (1.5+2.5 collection)
  3. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD (2.8)
  4. World of Final Fantasy (already have 14% on this)
  5. Dark Cloud (PS2 classic)
  6. The Tower of Deadly Monsters
  7. Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride
  8. Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart
  9. Nighmares from the Deep 2: The Siren's Call
  10. Eventide: The Slavic Fable

The last four are from Artifex Mundi, which created Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink, which I already platinumed. ^_^

After I participate (more or less) successful in the Spring Backlog Challenge atm, I'd like to join the next one as well.

 

Assassin's Creed Revelations (PS4) 0%

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell (PS4) 0%

Tales from the Borderlands (PS4) 0%

A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV (PS4) 0%

Tearaway Unfolded (PS4) 24%

 

This time I chose four games with a plat but I think for those games I need less skill than those games without a plat in the Spring Challenge.

I mean, the Olympics end well before this starts and everything on your to-do list has to be under 20% (with the exception of one game between 21% and 25%) before this starts anyway, so Olympics shouldn't cut into your time much.

I'll keep you enrolled. There's no penalty if you don't finish.
