I decided to just rework my list completely as some ideas popped up. I'll leave spaces blank but will fill them up before the event starts so I'll edit this list accordingly. Here are the games I know I will be playing for this event.

 

[A] A Hat In Time

[D] Devious Dungeon 2 (PS4)

[F] Fifty Words by POWGI (PS4)

[Q] Queen's Quest 3

[R] Reverie (PS4)

[W] World of Final Fantasy

[Y] Yooka-Laylee

This sounds interesting and would also finally make me finish my Platinum alphabet as I’m still missing an X.

 

Count me in.

Hey,  I've got question about with games starting with symbol, like √Letter? Should I use R for Root (√), L for letter, or it depends on what I want to choose, similar to numbers?

Feel free to follow the same rules as Numbers.

So I took some time and whipped up a spreadsheet for this event.

 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gg1Cf7ENs83TqhZR2l6zHSosMA-SFUXFG4c0Kf5rg_8/edit?usp=sharing

 

1st page being a summary of all participants with letter completion status (Will be checked in) and total number of games completed as well as average Plat rarity. Than, on the bottom, you can access a different page for each participant with their list of games for each letter, what console was used, 100% rarity and start and end date for the games. I do not mind being in charge of the spreadsheet for the event (I find it pretty chill to work on statistics). The spreadsheet will probably be updated every week.

 

Feel free to chime in if you notice any errors or if more things should be tracked.

Just took a look at this and appreciate your work 👍 I forgot at the time I wrote it that the Jak games were also on PS4 so I'll mention it now but it's the PS3 versions I'm going to play.

I’m seeing a lot of lists and I hope it’s okay but my plan was to just play games normally and see what letter I just get, then fill in the gaps later.

I'm afraid you'll need to commit to a list before starting the event.. 🙂

I'll sign up. I'm a little worried about some of these letters, but I guess I have time to think about it. I currently own games that begin with every letter, except E and J...and I'm not really sure I want to do Q*bert.

 

I'll have an official list in December.

Then I’ll hit you back in December. 

 

Is this list rigid once made or fluid? Because the idea of forcing myself to play 26 games and not feeling a game after some months but having to play it seems harsh.

My final list. Not. Gonna. Change. It. Well, idk if I'll finish it, since there is huge chance that I'll play something else in meantime too, but I'll try my best.

 

I don't choose game without plat and I prioritize PS4 games over Vita ones, but probably i'll play one game on each platform (since I tend to play on vita when i don't want to turn on PS4). And if some game have version on Vita, I'll probably choose this one.

I will also say that PS Plus factors into this a lot as well.

 

When I started the Alpha Plat Rain I would put off letters I didn't want to do (or didn't know what I would do) to see what Plus was offering hoping to get a different game for free. Or maybe some game went on sale. 

 

With my Z choice it just happened to go on sale and I really want to play 999 so it was a perfect fit :)

So I've updated my list a bit thanks to the September Savings Sale on PSN. I also added a game I had elsewhere in my cabinet.

 

(A) A Hat In Time

(D) Devious Dungeon 2 (PS4)

(F) Fifty Words by POWGI (PS4)

(H) Habroxia (PS4)

(J) Jigsaw Zen

(M) My Time at Portia

(Q) Queen's Quest 4

(R) Reverie (PS4)

(S) Solo: Adventures of the Heart

(W) World of Final Fantasy

(Y) Yooka-Laylee

(Z) Zeus Quest Remastered

 

Had to put parentheses instead because bracketed S is strikeout.

 

EDIT: After seeing that Artifex Mundi decided to release a 4th Queen's Quest game, I decided to swap out for that one so I can play Queen's Quest 3. Also, it looks like Trine 4 might be easy to platinum. I had platted Trine 3 a few times but didn't like the buggy saves, here's hoping the fourth entry isn't bugged and I might put it in the list! ^_^

You can make as many changes as you see fit until January 1st 2020, but your list is rigid after this date.

@iXanon What are the exact rules in replacing missing letters? I only have 3 of them but 2 are X and Q which are so limited. It seems harsh that I would have to add in 8 additional games to replace those 3 letters but I would like to have a full list to work towards?? Cheers

If you do not have any unstarted games for a letter, you may have 1 FREE swap from ANY letter.

 

Any further swaps will COST you 2 games of ANY letter in it's place - they do not have to be from the same letter.

 

So in your example if you have you're going to swap 3 games, you'd only need to add 2 additional games to a list of 26.

Ok I misread it as the swapped game plus 2 more. I am thinking I may throw the Spyro trilogy in yet to replace some missing ones. I would like a legit list but genuinely have nothing for those letters. I had to move another challenge around to find a Z game LOL

@freddie1989 I was surprised that of all the letters, V was the one I had to swap from a backlog of over 400

So I've decided to make one final change to my list.  Several of those are PS Plus titles and I'm not super sure I'll be getting that back anytime soon (after this month, cause I don't own Last of Us and would like to try it) for a while.  So, with that being said, I've noted my changes below.  I'm also substituting three additional letters so alas, I will be putting in 2 for each (adding 6 to my total).  

A - Adr1ft
B - Bulb Boy
C - Civilization Revolution 2 Plus
D - Dead Rising
E - Evil Within
F - Fallout Shelter
G - Grow Home
H - Hollow Knight
I - Infernium
J (Substituting L and S) - Layers Of Fear and Shadow Warrier 2
K - Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
L - Lords of the Fallen
M - Maize
N (Substituting S and T) - Sheltered and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
O - Oxenfree
P - Prototype (PS4)

Q (Substituting D) - Darksiders Warmastered Edition
R - Red Faction II
S - Sleeping Dogs
T - Timothy vs The Aliens
U - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Remastered
V - Valkyria Chronicles
W - Wild Arms 3
X (Subsituting T and D) The Tenth Line and Divinty: Original Sin
Y -Yasai Ninja
Z - Zombi

I'm aware this revision doesn't give me any wiggle room and will likely result in me not getting all of them.  However, these are games I own out right and I have been putting off for some time now, so while IT won't see me nailing completion of everything, it will make me go out of my way to finally put some effort into them.

Important question before I post my list.

 

do games with multiple lists on different platforms count if I’ve already completed it on one platform but want to do it again on another?

 

I.E.  if I already had the plat in a game like Va-11 Hall-A on vita but wanted to play it for the PS4 plat, does that count?

There technically isn't anything stopping that in the rules. I personnally am doing that by doing Life is Strange on PS3 having already done the PS4 version. Maybe wait for 100% confirmation from iXanon.  just to be sure.
