Update (2017-02-02)

I went through the replies to the application post, and counted 74 users who reported they finished games they played in the challenge! Great work everyone! Some of you finished several games, but I just counted you once, since one game was the only thing required to finish the challenge. Some might have finished games but not updated, or written about it in some other part of the thread, so the real numbers are probably even higher.

It's a shame I was away from home for much of the month and couldn't keep up with the topic, but I'm very happy about how many participated and played some won games!


Update (2017-01-04)

After 24 hours, I counted 92 replies to the application post, and it's great to know so many are up for playing some games won on Steamgifts!

If you replied with the game you intend to play in January as a regular reply to the thread and didn't reply to that specific post, add a reply there as well, since I won't be going through every page of the thread at the end of the month, I'll only check the replies to the first post when I do the end of the month count-up.


Original message:

Happy New Year everyone!

Now, most of us here have won some games on Steamgifts, and few of us have played through all the games we won. Some might not have played a single of the won games, so how about starting the first month of the new year with a little challenge, and try to inspire each other to play at least one game won here on Steamgifts?
Why?

  1. Playing games is fun (if you don't think so, isn't Steamgifts the wrong place for you? ;D)
  2. Some stranger you met on the internet (in most cases) was kind enough to buy a game for you, why not appreciate that gesture by playing the game?

Let's start out with a game that can be "finished" / "beaten". Games with a story mode, or even a simple puzzle game with a finite set of levels. The goal for the month is to play and finish this game. It's OK to play a game you have already started previously, but this time make sure to play the game all the way through.

Reply to this post with a comment about what game you intend to finish during the month. At the end of the month, reply to your own post, telling us about your progress. Bonus points for taking screenshots :) I'll try to add up how many games we managed to finish together at the end of the month. If you play more than one game, that's great, but only one needed for this challenge.

If you have limited time and want to know how much time you would expect to spend with a game before finishing it (to know if it's doable in one month) I recommend checking How Long To Beat.

If you can't remember which of your won games you have played and which you still have to finish, a good tool to use is this script by kelnage. Especially good to keep track of games with achievements, since it lists achievement progress for games, so you can see which ones you have started, not started, and likely finished, going by achievements.

I hope some of you will join in this month, have some fun and play some good games! Doesn't matter if you until now have played most of your wins or not a single one - every game played this month is one more game won on Steamgifts that got some love from its new owner :)

Advanced users who are ready to fight their backlog for real might be interested in joining BLAEO, a great tool that syncs your steam library and makes it easy to sort your backlog into lists with a slick drag-and-drop interface, accompanied by a great community and nice social functions, a real inspiration for getting a good start with playing one's backlog.

Since all challenge entries are posted as a reply on the first page, the rest of the thread can be used for discussion, maybe "suggest a game I should play" and whatnot.

Too keep the part with entry posts clean until I do the final count-up of finished games by the end of the month, I'll avoid replying too much to the entry posts.

Too bad I was away from home for most of the month and only had my laptop, couldn't play this game for quite some time. I did finish it, but around 11 hours too late (if we go by the international date line), so this became a February finish instead of a January one. At least I played a good portion of the game in January :D

Time to do the end of the month update for this thread, I'll start checking the comments!

Perfect timing, as I was working on a post on BLAEO and it's gonna be part of my plan this year totally thanks to you, you inspired me to attempt what you did last year with no SG win unplayed.

I'll try not to limit myself to one, but for your challenge i'll go with Kathy Rain :)

Thanks again for the perpetual inspiration ;)

Completed FF. A good game (and story) marred by a poor port (had to play windowed on low graphics settings so as not to crash)
Kholat finished. Enjoyable as a "walking sim" but not what I was expecting. Seemed like random deaths occurred but probably just my playstyle
Offowrld started. Tutorial and some skirmish maps and campaign done. Relaxing Sunday afternoon game, gonna pick up the DLC when cheap so I get the "complete" experience before I continue.

I intend to finish braid, but that's cheating since I already started that one. The same goes for The Cave which I didn't win here but was given to me directly by a kind SG-user.

So for this challenge I choose Beyond Eyes, a game I won recently and looks pretty :)

Finished Braid and Beyond Eyes. Both interesting games which I enjoyed a lot. After a good run on The Cave I'm now focussing on a game I didn't win but started playing because of a win. I won Deus Ex The Fall and decided to start the series with the first one, which I bought.

It doesn't have any "credits roll" ending, and the gameplay is open ended. If you don't have any other good option, you could count achievement percentage and gameplay and set a goal for when to consider the game "beaten". I did the same with Cities: Skylines and aimed for 50% achievements (before there was any DLC though), took about 40 hours. It's a great game.

That's a pretty good idea. I'll try to set an achievement goal like that or maybe getting around building a somewhat functioning city :p I wonder how much does the DLCs change the game though?

I don't own any of the DLC, so I can't comment on that, but my achievement percentage shrinks every time a DLC pack is added :D
The 100 000 inhabitant achievement is a pretty good goal, by then you have a well functioning city.

Just remember that achievements are disabled if you add any workshop mods.

A lot. I don't have the latest DLC, so I can't comment on that one, but the other DLC change it quite a lot. One of them adds the option to play on a winter map, which adds a few challenges (frozen roads, heating etc). I'm not sure what After Dark adds exactly, but I'm pretty sure it was a nice amount of content.

Done and dusted.

The game started off with some religious undertones I didn't mind, they even added something to the story. But the last chapters got so preachy I was put off by it. Thankfully the pleasant sierra style visuals and posting my intentions in this thread helped me through it. All in all a distinctly average point and click that I'm not sorry I played.

Next up, 12 is Better Than 6.

2 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Had the morning off and figured that cleaning up around the house can wait.

12 is Better Than 6 was a fun little top-down shooter that seemed to borrow a page or two from Hotline Miami. Both the visuals and the mechanics were good and most importantly, the ai felt challenging enough without feeling cheap. The dialogue/story wasn't quite up to snuff. Seems the developers knew that as well since there was an achievement for skipping it.

I think I'll go for Traverser next. I played it some right after winning it but got stuck on a glitch and never finished it.

2 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I've 100% Traverser.

It hadn't magically turned into a well polished game but, even with the jankiness, I had a fun enough time. Though the puzzles were hard only in execution and it had a pointless walk 15 km chevo that took an hour of running in a circle after playing through the game and getting all other achievements.

I'll go for Zenge next, how long to beat pegs it as short enough to finish today. ^^

Zenge looked pleasant enough and the ambient music was nice but it wasn't really puzzling, a bit of a flaw in a puzzle game.

Started on Impossible Creatures.

2 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Finished with Impossible Creatures and a few others to boot.

Still really enjoyed the gameplay options afforded by the creature creator. But, having played the game before, the campaign was rather trivialized by knowing to add a regenerating animal to every splice. The story I didn't get too invested in. There was some lighthearted humor that got a few chuckles, but all in all I was in it for the average strategy game and the creature creator. The game didn't have achievements so a screenshot of the end will do.

Went on to complete Fable Anniversary. It was basically just a re-release of Fable tlc. Played on heroic mode, apparently it is a bit harder than the original but I really couldn't tell. The entire graphics engine has been upgraded and you can really see the difference (after looking at comparison shots). Old Fable looked good enough though, I would've been just as happy playing that.

Next up was Time Mysteries 3: The Final Enigma. Jumped in a bit late in the story but I got the gist of it. What can you say? It was a HOG by Artifex Mundi, good looking and on the easy side.

Then I went through Dispatcher, purely to say I've done it. Most everything about the game was bad. The RPG elements might as well not have been there. Didn't notice a difference between starting and maxed skills and some of the perks just straight up didn't work. There were questionable visual choices (no differences between a working door and a "wall" door among others). The horror element was a bit lacking as well. As far as I can tell the log files you find while playing can only be read on the start menu, so there's no suspense being built while playing and the monsters weren't really scary either.

After that I played through Mystik Belle. A short and sweet metroidvania game with some light inventory puzzles on top. Beautiful pixel art backgrounds with sprites that don't fall short either. Played through SotN recently and the gameplay here wasn't quite up to those standards but definitively sufficient enough. Had a blast all the way through.

Then I finished off LEGO® Jurassic World. Nothing really to say about the gameplay, you break stuff and rebuild it into other stuff. I think they captured the movies reasonably well. I don't think I've seen the first two since the 90s but the game helped bring back all the salient points and I could see the original scenes in my head. They couldn't salvage the audio though, the switch between new and old dialogue is really jarring to me.

Was thinking of going for LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham next, but I don't know if I have two back to back LEGO® games in me. We'll see what'll happen.

Had the time to complete a few more.

Moorhuhn Invasion (Crazy Chicken Invasion) turned out to be a rather bland gallery shooter. Not bad as such but I felt the half an hour or so it took me to rewrite the (local) leaderboard showed me all the game had.

Moved on to Spaceport Hope, a 2-D platform shooter made to fit into the 16-bit era. The shooting was simple and solid and it had more than enough weapons to chose from, in fact I didn't even try half of them. A small negative was the amount of enemies that turtled into an invincible state, stopping the action and forcing you to wait until they turned vulnerable again. The end boss turned out to suffer from invincibility as well and I had to apply a beta patch to be able to beat it. Ending on a positive note, the music was a good fit for the game.

Having just won INFRA I knew that had to be next. This turned out to be one of my top picks for goty 2016. There's a lack of final polish and some bugs one needs to overlook. But behind that is one of the most detailed and unique gaming experiences I've had. Some examples of the level of detail this game delves into that really struck me were the difference in day to day objects between locations. Whoever worked at the the hydro plant smoked Lucky Strikes, while the person living in the sewers left behind Marlboro packs. The office had a stainless steel Moccamaster where as the logging hut was outfitted with a white, plastic, store brand coffee maker. The one bug I encountered myself was easy to overlook because of the dev response, a patch was live the morning after I'd reported it along with a comment on why it'd been broken and what the patch did. The puzzles were reasonably easy with a few tougher ones strewed in. The game absolutely isn't for everyone but the narrative and atmosphere drew me in like very few have. I'll definitively be returning for part 3.

I'll start on LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham but there's no way that's getting completed tomorrow. ^^

I'm at about 50/104 won games finished overall (some I've started and not finished yet). I'll aim to get closer to 75-80 by the end of the year.

done with Grim Fandango! was curious about the game only because of some flash videos referencing it and it looked cool... and the game is HELLA cool! especially the main character, found him to be just, well, a perfect fit for the story of a point&click! he's unbelievably crafty, makes the sketchiest plans yet, they work, all because of his perseverance to make them work, all to accomplish a good deed.
logical and satisfying all the while, glad to have been there.

okay, Cladun X2 is super dangerous. it seems it doesn't have an end, as the characters tell you there's no escape, and there's just an endless list of dungeons to explore and defeat. the gameplay is fluid as hell, and that feels really good, but want something better?

something better is creating your own team of characters, being able to play them all, switching battle-styles when you feel like it, them helping each other with their perks and classes. thanks to the magic circle system, you can make crazy combinations to cover your weaknesses and make your perks even more insanely strong. but the best part?

ᵏᵉʳᵒ only started the game, and cleared 4 dungeons in 4 hours. now, the dungeons weren't long at all. ᵏᵉʳᵒ did replay the last one with all characters to level them up and try their battle-styles a bit, but no, what took the longest... was editing the equipment and admiring how badass it looks. not done editing it all, but just the spear and shields edit made the thing infinitely cooler. you can create edits for literally everything. characters body parts. weapons. armors. shields. EVERYTHING.

MUST. EDIT. EVERYTHING.

finished Bit.Trip Runner2 earlier (still playing to get that sweet sweet 100%), and it added some cool mechanics, especially the dance: dancing gives you additional score affected by the multipliers but takes time to complete, so ᵏᵉʳᵒ is trying to squeeze dances everywhere to get closer to the top scores (there are no achievements for that, but.... MUST. GET. SCORE.)

Happy new year dude! As a part of blaeo I totally support the initiative!
So this month ill be completing The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries. It has been at the top of my list of next games i was going to start. But wasn't able to do as much as i hoped in december, due too RL troubles. But am looking forward to some gaming now!!! <3 <3
I loved seasons 1 and 2 of walking dead telltale games. Played threw wolf among us and game of thrones telltale games as well not too long ago.
So have no doubts ill enjoy it even if a bit shorter (4-6 hours). So after completing i may have to pick another ^ ^

Alright, let's see.. Since I don't wanna "cheat" by playing games I've already started... and that list is very small :p

  1. My most recent win, Her Story
  2. Karmaflow: The Rock Opera - I actually installed this one several months ago but never got around to it, aaaaaaaand
  3. Homefront: The Revolution. This one I was actually pretty close to finishing but then I was busy for a couple of weeks and didn't get around to playing the last bit of it.

Will I finish all 3? Not sure, haven't had much time for gaming lately but eh.. should be able to do it regardless.

End of the month update

Okay, let's see. Started Karmaflow so far - finished world 1 & I'm guessing I'm close to finishing world 2 as well but I might actually give up on this one. Horrible performance, sound tied to framerate (really....? maybe if I wouldn't have 25-40 fps on a gtx 960 it wouldn't matter much), fixed camera on this one thing that made me die about 15 times just now before quitting... The concept is good, the music is good (when you don't hear a robotic voice because of the framerate), but the execution leaves A LOT to be desired... I might try it once again before the end of the month, but I'm pretty disappointed :/

Okay, disregard this comment. I did manage to finish Karmaflow after all.
Pros: Music, Concept
Cons: Controls, Camera (in certain sections), Sound tied to framerate (come on..), Poor optimization.

Did I enjoy it? Yes, but it was really frustrating at times. Considering the amazing cast for this game, I really wish the gameplay would manage to keep up with the soundtrack

Ninja Pizza Grill beaten as well. I guess not reading much about it beforehand was pretty helpful, since I didn't really expect the game to be based around a serious topic even though it literally mentions it in the game description :v

Okay so, end of the month update:

Games finished: 8

Her Story: 100%'d - Quite interesting concept, I'd say the awards this game received are well deserved.
Karmaflow: The Rock Opera: Beaten - Would've been nice for it to be optimized properly, but it was still an enjoyable experience due to the music (well, duh)
Homefront: The Revolution: Perhaps a bit repetitive after a while (the first couple of hours were the best part of the game in my opinion - it truly felt like you were entirely overwhelmed) - not sure why it still has mixed reviews on steam after they fixed the performance issue and many of the bugs present at launch, but I guess people just gave up on it.
Ninja Pizza Girl: I'm not a fan of speedrunning games in general, but this one was simple enough with a good message behind it, so I've enjoyed my time in it.
Toren: 100%'d - Pretty basic adventure game with several things being "mysterious" just for the sake of it, but since it was a relatively short game, it was still decent enough.
Hotline Miami 2: A completely different experience compared to the first one while also keeping what made the original one so successful - Maybe slightly easier due to certain characters being relatively powerful, but I'd say it's a worthy sequel.
fault - milestone one: 100%'d - all I can say is: WHY'D YOU PUT SUCH A CLIFFHANGER AT THE END? ;_; Now reading the next ones is an absolute must
Nidhogg: The forever alone experience - Playing this singleplayer might've been a bit silly but with multiplayer dead and nobody I could co-op with, I guess I "finished" it (I did finish the singleplayer "campaign" after all)

I'll try to finish Yesterday Origins asap (in for another challenge, until the 8th of January, slghtly started), and possibly a few other, shorter games from my old wins - there were another times when I didn't only join games I really wanted to play, but just was even slightly interested in, without paying too much mind to their quality.
Possible other games:
Pineview Drive
Blood Knights
Red Johnson's Chronicles
Leisure Suit Larry...
maybe Limbo 100%, which requires one-sitting play with 5 or less deaths (and I haven't even finished the game yet)
We'll see, plan is at least 1-2 extra wins but Yesterday, maybe Christmas gifts :)
editing here before I'd forget:
Yesterday Origins done, I'll likely re-return for achievements
Zeno Clash story done
Residue 100% done
Please Don't Touch Anything done
F.E.A.R. Extraction Point done
F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate done
F.E.A.R. 2 done
Alum 100%
(got the 1 achievement for staring Voxelized, it's a mess. done and buried? Same-ish with Grass simulator... not my proudest wins)
Namariel Legends: Iron Lord Premium Edition done
Leo's Fortune done
Jack Lumber done
LiEat 100%

I know about Limbo, it's just a friendly competition with a friend, who'll first 100% it (we haven't even played it in a year)
Pineview Drive... I had the feeling like that, it would just be good to hate it ticked off from my won list and never ever return to it.
Zeno Clash was a little trippy with a dash of "WTF is going on" but the design and combat is really nice :)

I think it's about time I play Lego Batman 3, I played the second one not that long ago as a bit of preparation and I wasn't too impressed with it, however the third one does have better reviews so I'm still hopeful I'll enjoy it as much as the other Lego games! I've also bought a bit of DLC for it as well seeing as they've rather sneakily started making achievements to require the DLC, not just the base game or season pass...

Finished everything yesterday night! While I don't think it's my favourite Lego game, I found it more fun than the second game and still wanted to fully complete it. I've taken a few screenshots of which I posted some of the better ones on my steam page, here's the stud fountain for beating the game - it reminded me of playing the old windows Solitaire and that crazy card animation you got for winning lol :)

I'll try to finish the main story in Fallout 4 - that should be fairly doable, even though I get sidetracked a lot...
I'll also finish Adventures of Bertram Fiddle: Episode 1: A Dreadly Business it doesn't have achievements and my time isn't logged properly, because I play it a mainly in offline on my laptop. But I guess it shouldn't take too long to finish.

But to be up to the challenge I want to beat a game I didn't start yet.I'll go with Trauma with no achievements. And maybe I even manage to start and beat Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock

Anything more than that would be terrible nice but not realistic :(

Played and beaten Trauma. Best thing to compare it to would probably be a HOG but that wouldn't do it justice. It's somewhat weird and many probably wouldn't even call it a game. I'm not very sure about what it wants to tell me and everything is quite vague. For people looking into alternative concepts for games, this might be quite interesting =)

Next in line is Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock. I guess I might not be able to get enough playtime to finish Fallout 4 - I'm at a point now where I have to make a decision - and I don't want to... just yet...

I made this plan at the start of January and installed the game at the same time. Still I didn't start playing it due to couple reasons; time constraints and computer issues. But finally I was able to solve both of these issues, and remarkably beat the game! I'm rather proud of myself, finally I don't have to be ashamed of neglecting such a lucky and good win! It was a really good game too, I'm thinking about creating a giveaway for it so others could enjoy it as well. I've only beat the game now and unlocked New Game + so there's still much playing to be done in this one, but at least I'm going the right way.

Armello - First game I won this year Last game I won last year. I started it yesterday, plan on playing much more this weekend. I'll count it as done when I've unlocked all cards (not sure if there's an achievement for that) and won at least once with every character (there definitely are achievements for that)
Forgot, I already finished Bird Story this month, but before I saw this post, so I guess it doesn't quite count ^^

Edit: Okay, so according to HLTB I'm already done, since the tutorial was the "main story" in Armello ... well, I'll keep playing and trying to reach the goals I mentioned, but seems like I need to add another game to the list. I did start Zenge a little while ago, so I'll add that to my list :3

Reply instead of edit, for the extra bump ;)

Played some more Armello, and I don't think I'll manage to get wins with all 8 characters - only managed to finish one MP round in 3 hours (first one crashed or something after about 90 mins, couldn't do anything anymore, like a round or two before the king died and someone would've won even without attacking) - so even if I play every free second I get, it's highly unlikely I win 7 more times this month :(

Finished Zenge! :D
Fun little puzzle game with really nice graphics in between, very calming overall as well. I needed a guide for some in between puzzles (mostly to see where to start), but the last 20 or so were actually quite easy, not unlike Hook or klocki difficulty-wise.

January was a "busy" month for me.
I beat Witness (first ending, two more to go) and Soma, both were totally amazing and joined my top10 of favorite games.
I doubt I would beat anything else from my latest wins, cause I need to "work on" games my friends gift me on Christmas first (Inside, Abzu, Hitman).

I've started Life is Strange since I'm super lucky to have won it after watching the play through of it, intended to finish it after my finals this week. :P
And plan on playing and finishing Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons this month also since I've bought a controller way back when I won it just for the game, and should really put it to good use. x3

Edit: Well, I failed the challenge. :P Totally underestimated the finish time of Life is Strange and my play style of touching everything in the game didn't help. Only finished it today. It's still a really good game tho. I'm surprised that at the end I have quite some emotional feelings since I've already watched all of the gameplay, and didn't like Chloe a bit. I still don't like her, but she's pretty brave sacrificing herself.

I eventually encountered the issue most negative reviews stated they had. The game is too repetitive. It becomes tedious and boring because you do the same thing over and over again with no variety and a difficulty scale that doesn't make much sense. (It wasn't too hard for me, but the jumps were very strange).

I did not finish it, I quit after 20 hours, but I wouldn't want to finish it honestly. Maybe if the game had voice acting...or better graphics...or something different than Avernum/Geneforge/Exile since I've already played and beaten every last one of those games.

I started to play Eventide 2: The Sorcerers Mirror yesterday and I intend to finish it soon. Btw does "finishing it" mean 100%ing it or just play through till the end of the game? Asking because this particular game has an achievement which requires you to play the game a second time with different decisions. I don't think that I'll do that.

I'm going to try to finish The Cave this month (with 2 characters since apparently you need 3 or 4 playthroughs to see all of them.)

Update: It's 02:35 on February 1st and I officially didn't make it. I guess too much time spent on the SteamGifts forums, too little playing games. Well what else is new :D I picked the Scientist, the Hillbilly and the Knight for my first playthrough and judging by the Cavepaintings im roughly 5 / 8 into the game. I've already played the origin levels of the Knight and the Hillbilly (I'm mentioning this because I assume the origin levels of each character take place at different points of the game) and I just did the the minecart puzzle.

So far I can say that the graphics are beautiful and very atmospheric, the controlls are a little off but since the focus is mostly on puzzling and not on platforming that's not a huge problem and the humor of the game is great. Below are a few of my favourite screenshots up until where I am right now.

Hm. Since i was gonna beat some wins in this month i've thought to myself - i've post my "achievements" here after i do so. So...
In the end i didnt have enough time to beat a lot of games but in January i've beaten few of those from SG.

  • Firewatch - it was very short but nice experience. Story could use one or two twists more but overall very nice title. Yes.
  • RPG Fighter League - rpg maker game focused on arena fights. Grinding and unlocking suff was a lot of fun since i like grinding levels :P Yes.
  • Three Heroes - Hm. Kinda meh gameplay with some bugs in it. Humour (not that great but still) saved after all. Yes.
  • Child of Light - christmas gift from Keo. I've liked it both storywise and gameplay. Art was spot on too. Yes.
  • Windward - nice and peaceful game. Maybe not that peacful afterall when most of the time you have to fight off pirates but i'm talking more about feeling ya have while playing. I've watched Sense8 while playing the game. Good times. Yes.
  • Alien: Isolation - Eh. I dont really like scary games :P But win is a must play after all so it is done. I've liked movies and as for game - it was ok but scary mostly with few jumpscares it had. And after you get your hands on flamethrower - nothing is scary anymore. Yes.

Child of Light is under playthrough at the moment, game is quite much different what i suspected it to be :)

When looking my BLAEO history per monthly games beaten, could perhaps have +10-20 titles on top of that. Perhaps these games after Child of Light:

Batman: Arkham City/Origins
DeadCore
Death to Spies + Death to Spies: Moment of Truth
Deponia Doomsday
The Evil Within + DLC content
Far Cry 2

You're one of the few users with 20+ wins and everything "beatable" finished, congrats :) Quite a bit above the Steamgifts average.

I was happy about having about 70% of my won games played and 60% finished, but I was a part of an event that added another 8 wins, so now I'm down below 60% again. I'm guessing I'll end the year with around 70-80% of my wins finished, maybe more.

Those are some nice games to play! Good luck in future giveaways, you could use a couple more wins ;)

There is only few of us o.o Thanks mate! :D

That's great percentage of completion. Indeed percentage goes down fast, when even few games get applied to the list. Holiday season made my steam account quite much fatter and now my total completion rate in (beaten/completed) games is under 80% once again, but deals and trades were so good for the games i wanted so had to pick them up :)

I'm certain that you will reach it towards end of the year even though new ones might be added into list! -.o I did keep little pause lately doing other things since didn't want gaming to become a chore.

Indeed there is great games on my gameplay list at the moment! Guess i will check up Hitman quite soon so can tell to my friend how it is and maybe get the full season 1 package with discount coupon from Square Enix Holiday box :)

Actually i find game to be really easy and i'm playing on Hard . Maybe because i do all the side quests and scavenge a lot so i have level and supplies to cut throu it relatively easy.

That's what I should do. I'm mainly doing the brotherhood of steel quests and I'm stuck on finding out what happened to the recon patrol. Ran into a group of super mutants that have kicked my ass 6 times now. But I have mainly vanilla weapons, so that's likely my problem. Took me a while to figure out how to craft and I'm still not totally sure. Trying to increase the shots on my laser musket but I can't find enough material to mod it

Am that one is quite hard if you just try to follow throu it non-stop. I think i had problems there as well so just stopped and did something else. Later then i got some levels and weapons it was cake-walk. So i suggest to just wonder into to some other direction ,you fill find yourself in some crazy story before long ;)

Advice taken. I won't bother with current quests right now. I'll just take a walk. As you said, I'm bound to run into some quest line or monsters to level up. Just not strong enough for the BOS line yet.

This is one thing i really see as superior to others in Fallout 4. Its 'notsobig' map is packed with content. Just point your cursor into some direction and few minutes later you will in middle of some interesting story or mystery to solve:)

Nice, congrats on the Fallout 4 win! Finishing it in one month could be hard if you like to do side stuff. I didn't do nearly everything and it still took me 90+ hours to finish the game.

if you plan to play it on pc, shouldn't you wait a bit more, maybe a few more patch for Dishonored 2 , wait until they iron a bit more technical issue first before play it

I've actually had no issues on my PC. I did on my laptop but that doesn't really matter. I run it at 50-60fps consistently with it dropping when its super demanding! I've played through 60% of the game so far :)

You can run 50-60 fps on Laptop or PC?

December has already been this month for me. I played four games that I won here, two of which I finished, the other two I didn't like so much so decided to skip about mid-way. The games are (links are to my short reviews): Please, Don’t Touch Anything (thank you m139), Journal (thank you planetoide), Fire (thank you Vee79) and Castle of Illusion (thank you ertitoagus).

For January I plan to play Nation Red (gifted to me by Nightshifty) and Never Alone (gifted by entropia). Other candidates: House of Caravan (gifted by Pesmerga) and Shank (gifted by Sisyphus17). Then, if all goes according to plan I'll start plaiying games that are bigger commitment in terms of time, and if I get to 50% wins played I'll start joining GAs with good odds again (I currently only join public GAs of wishlisted games, and these typically have thousands of entries).

Sounds like a good plan, and it seems you are quite a popular person too ;)

It felt great reaching 50% of my Steamgifts wins finished. For a while I was at around 70% played and 60% finished, but then I took part in the Simultaneous Giveaways event, and now I have a few more games to play through to get back to 60% again. Since I'm playing the games at a faster pace than I'm winning them, it's looking good for the future :D

I started and finished several games! I think I wouldn't be able to do that so soon but I quite enjoyed use my free time to beat them.
Now I'm looking for to achieve 100% of its achievement. At least some (now that I figured out that some are actually broken).
I'm currently playing Batman Arkham Asylum and I'm about to play Shank 2. :)

I actually played almost only games I won, for several months now. My intention is to finish Stardew Valley and get back into EU4, now that I have the latest DLC. Might find time for some won game in between.

That's nice!
I peeked at your wins and saw Transformers: Devastation there. That's a game I would move to the front of the backlog if I would have won it, I had so much fun with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance from the same studio. Also not that long, I've seen those who have finished it in 5 hours, but it takes longer time if you go for more of the achievements.

I like to go through my entire list of games and play the game I feel best fits the mood I am currently in to give the game the best chance of enjoying it. I may be in the mood for a difficult, action filled, first person shooter or I may just be in the mood to play a relaxing, childish, cartoonish, point and click. Being that I have over 6 times as many games that I bought myself compared to what I won here, I often end up playing games that I bought. I noticed this and felt bad about neglecting the games I have won, so I started picking games to play from what I have won.

I am currently playing 2 games, one being Qbeh-1: The Atlas Cube, which was a win and I will definitely finish that this month. Also, the last 6 games I have played and completed have been games that I won here. They were: The Beginners Guide, Super Win The Game, 35MM, Papo & Yo, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and The Banner Saga.

I do about the same thing, but I have enough won games to have at least one at the time that I'm in the mood for. Nice to hear that you're playing and finishing several of your wins!

One thing I tried last year was to not buy any games for myself, only for giveaways, and focus on playing my won games. Turned out to be a great way to fight the backlog :)

There are 2 situations where I will buy games for myself. If it is something I really want and it is discounted around 75% or higher while being about $3 or less. Or if it is a game I have any interest in that is a fairly cheap bundle. I don't like passing up on a bundle game that I want because the price is so good and I know that it may never show up in a bundle again. I have bought so many great games from bundles and then never saw them in a bundle again. I end up piling on games though because I really like indie games and there are so many I am interested in.

I'll play Deponia. Also i can confirm that BLAEO is a wonderful way to kill your backlog :)

It seems to work wonders for anyone giving it a real try.

I used to organize my library through the Steam client, planning on what to play by moving games to different categories, but now I rely on just BLAEO instead, so much faster and also more fun.
