  1. So just clicking through the links... wow, Fight of Gods is a thing. That looks like the sort of game designed to offend. And looking it up, apparently it has. It was banned in Thailand and Malaysia.
  2. Without playing the game yet (obviously), I'd add that Suda 51 games have a history of being divisive. He has released several love-it-or-hate-it sort of games.

    So I mentioned this in the first post, but Challenge Game of the Month. It's a thing I'm going to do: I'm going to select a newly released game each month as a "challenge" title, and beating that game earns a challenge point (akin to a Bronze Challenge). With that said, what systems do people own? Should I stick to games on Nintendo systems, or mix it up a little bit?

    Beat: Nekopara Extra, PC Ranking on first post updated through this post.

    A few things. First, two more beats for me: Adventures of Lolo and Donkey Kong (both Switch, on the NES app). Lolo is a first time beat, Donkey Kong might as well be an annual tradition. Photos of these (and Katamari Damacy Reroll) in spoiler below. Second, I've added rankings into the first post. It's kind of silly at this point, but at least it's there and hopefully will encourage me to keep it (somewhat) current throughout the year, rather than wait until the last minute to count everybody up. It's a start. I'll probably create a spreadsheet later. Third, Chrom said he can make the "Gamer of the Year" rank happen. That's been updated into the main post. Fourth, Pichi makes a good suggestion about the 100 games challenge. Looking at the prior thread, not many people managed to achieve that last year. I might make one of the two proposed changes there, it's a matter of picking one.

    Partner Pikachu and Partner Eevee from the Let's Go Games. You can get them if you have save data from their respective games on the Switch. There is a Spirit Board challenge as well, though I haven't personally seen it pop up while playing.

    Nintendo just slapped that seal on everything, though. Even Shaq Fu!

    You can play whatever you want. But for the purposes of this thread, when it comes to emulation, we ask that you own the game. I've also posted the first batch of challenges. Feel free to suggest your own!

    I've always taken the intent of the emulation rule to mean if you own the game, you can play it on an emulator for the purposes of this thread. I am not terribly knowledgeable in the area of flashcarts, but I believe the intent is the same. One of the goals of this thread has been to beat the backlog of games we own. The Virtual Console has counted in past years and continues to count. The same is true of the Nintendo Switch NES app, as well as "Classic" consoles like the NES Classic, SNES Classic and PlayStation Classic. And, while I'm here, I'll note my first beat of the year as well. Like Young P, it was Katamari Damacy Reroll for the Switch.

    Video Games Finished in 2019

    Welcome to Video Games Finished in 2019! If you participated in prior years, you probably have an idea of what you're getting into. But if you haven't? Welcome! We encourage you to play video games. And more than just play, we encourage you to beat those video games! Do you have a backlog? Let's try to reduce that! As I'm flying by the seat of my pants here, there will be some kinks to iron out. But one thing we know is we'll be beating video games! So, without further ado... GAMES BEATEN: We're using the same criteria as the past few years: When you beat a game, post the name and the system. That’s it. No photo needed. We're going by the honor system here! So don't lie! After all, it's your backlog, so the lie hurts you most of all. You are encouraged, but by no means required, to comment upon or rate the games you've beaten. Was it good? Was it garbage? Let us know! Or don't! It's all up to you! If you want a way to keep track of your backlog, go to backloggery. RULES: 1) Make a new post when you beat a game, so I can easily see it and count it. Game and system is all you have to post. However, having either your first post be a master post or keeping a running total on each new post helps me double check and make sure scores are accurate. 2) NO EMULATORS UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY OWN THE GAME (or otherwise stated). 3) You may finish a game you started playing in a prior year and count it. That's fine. HOWEVER, please do not open up a save file from years ago that is right before the final boss, beat it, and then claim beat the game. That's cheap. 4) You can however, feel free to go back to a game you haven't played for year(s), start from the beginning and beat it and count it. That's fine. It is OK to beat the same game multiple years in a row. 5) Beating a game multiple times in the same year will only count once. This includes the same game on different consoles, remakes, etc. Consideration is offered to DLC campaigns, such as the Octo Expansion and Torna: The Golden Country. 6) There is no Rule 6. 7) Digital downloads count for the system you played it on, physical copies count for the system they were made for. 8) Mobile games in the nature of gatcha, slight story, etc such as; Fire Emblem: Heroes, Puzzle & Dragons, Star Wars: Heroes, etc, can all be considered complete after beating all stages. For example, every story mode and paralogue stage in FE:H, all normal stages in P&D, all light, dark, cantina, and mod battles in SW, etc. These requirements can change if more story missions or stages are added. Just finish the levels available to you. I won't hold it against you if you claim a gatcha game as beaten and more levels are added later. Of course, if this happens, you can't claim to beat the game a second time in the same year. Categories: 1) Console – Switch, Xbox One, PS4, Switch eShop, PSN, XBLA, Atari Jaguar, etc. 2) Handheld – 3DS, DS, Vita, PSP, GBC, 3DS eShop, PSN, Game Gear, etc 3) PC – PC and Steam Box 4) Mobile – Phone and Tablet games. 5) Overall – Add up all categories above to get a total NOTE: Since some PSN games have cross save functionality, you pick whether you beat it on PS4/PS3/PSV (if applicable). NOTE: Physical copies of games count for their original system, digital copies of games count for the system you beat them on. You might remember this as Rule 7! NOTE: Emulators count as the copy of the game you must own for it to count. Owning a physical copy of that game counts as the original system, owning a digital copy counts as the system you beat it on (usually PC in this case). Prizes: Whoever beats the most games will earn the "Gamer of the Year" rank. CHALLENGES: As in years past, picture proof is required for challenges. In fact, we're just recycling the rules from last year. You beat the challenges, you earn points! This might just be a for-fun sort of thing right now, as I haven't set up any prizes, but we'll see what we can do! RULES: 1) You must provide picture proof of each. 2) Your Ninfora username must be visible in the picture. 3) Each person may only beat each challenge once. 4) If beaten on an emulator, you must provide proof of ownership of the legitimate copy (unless otherwise stated). 5) Challenges will be added periodically as people beat the older ones. 6) If a previously beaten game with proof completes a newly added challenge, just make a note of it in your next update post. 7) You are in charge of keeping track of this section if you are participating. I will only be checking to make sure the games you are claiming for each challenge actually meet the credentials. I will not be pouring over games beaten lists to see if you beat challenges and did not post about them. Bronze (Worth 1 point each)  1) Tenth Anniversary: Beat a game initially released in 2009. 2) And They're Off: Beat a racing game. 3) Simply Spooky & Scary: Beat a horror game 4) When In Rome: Beat a game with a Roman numeral in the title 5) Do You Guys Not Have Phones?: Beat a mobile game. 6) Super Title 64 Advance: Beat a game with Super, 64 or Advance in the title. 7) The Power of Disney: Beat a Disney game (non-Marvel/non-Star Wars) 8) Portmanteau: Beat a Metroidvania game. 9) Baker's Dozen: Beat 13 games. Silver (Worth 3 points) 1) Three's a Crowd: Beat a Trilogy of games (Such as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy or the Metroid Prime trilogy). 2) For Shovelry: Beat three games featuring Shovel Knight. Gold (Worth 5 points) 1) 50/50 Raffle: Beat 50 games Platinum (Worth 10 points) TBD Challenge Game of the Month: Each month, I will select a newly released video game as a "Challenge Game." Treat this as a bronze challenge. If you beat the Challenge Game, it counts as one challenge point!

    So I'll post something this evening, after work. The only point of clarification I'd ask is regarding challenges: what do folks think of the existing challenges here? Should we recycle the 2018 challenges, or create a whole new batch for 2019? Or a mix? I, personally, have no problem letting the existing challenges stand as they are and just adding to them (as XLW does above). And if anyone else has challenge ideas, by all means, do put them forward.

    I was going to ask a similar thing, actually. I'd like to see this continue into 2019, whether it's hosted by a returning Gold, by me or by someone else entirely. By which I mean to say I have no objections to anyone else hosting the thread. I do have a few suggestions for challenges, if you're in need. Some are like those seen in this thread, the other is a "Game of the Month" style challenge in which the host selects a game coming out that month as a Challenge Game worth a bonus point if you beat it. Looking at January, options include No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again, Kingdom Hearts 3, the Resident Evil 2 remake or even New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.
