@slag: Not sure why I didn't get a notification for this when you left it or how I didn't see it until just now.

Regardless, I just knocked up that number to 3(!), I'd say spacing them pretty far apart from each other goes a long way!

@slag: I wouldn't say I'm totally against doing this again, but it's a serious time investment. I probably won't do 100 next year and scaling it back seems like a missed opportunity to do something else to me. I've been thinking about playing a good chunk of games that are widely considered "the best" since most of my game knowledge is through reading and watching rather than actually playing. Like I mentioned above, it was interesting to go back and see Doom and SotN first-hand since I'd never played them before.

I found playing through a series/developer's catalog helped a ton but there was definitely some fatigue. It can be kind of grating to play games that are so similar back to back but the presence of a strong narrative (or any narrative really) kind of helps. I felt the most fatigue when I was playing though the Lords of Shadow series because the games got less and less good as I moved from game to game.

Also, I'm definitely one of those people that has to play (or at least, try to play) every game in a series before I move on to the next one. Lighting Returns definitely looks like my jam but I'd like to try giving XIII-2 another chance before I pass on it completely.

@bollard: I don't think 50 games was a disappointment, I'm just a big fan of going hard or going home. I figured since I'm usually at home most of the time I might as well go as hard as I possibly could.

@roundlay: I actually streamed quite a few of the games on my list from start to finish; Strider, Zeno Clash, Freedom Planet, Volgarr, Revengeance(twice!!), Killer is Dead, Ground Zeroes and Remember Me. I have thought about cutting back the number of games I finish next year and just streaming all of them but I want to get a better stream setup going before January. I'm real close to getting there though!

I appreciate all the congratulations!(Is that a thing people say?) It doesn't really seem like I did much of anything but 100 games is a lot of games. It also feels kinda good to see I accomplished something I set out to do, which doesn't happen to me all that often!

@bluefish: Looking over the list again, the games that stuck with me the most at this point are Sakura Wars, Hylics and The Talos Principle. They're all fairly different and set out to do different things but they're the games that I kept thinking about (positively) the most long after I played and finished them. Games like Doom, Duke 3D and Symphony of the Night also stand out because they're all fairly old games that still hold up pretty well.

@j4yk: I'd like to think that I played a lot of good games (or at very least, decent games) but there were quite a few that I absolutely did not like that I played out of the 100. The only reason I didn't drop them is because by the time I was ready to quit, I checked and was already more than halfway through finishing them.

Austin said he named the main character, but is there a character creator in this game? Can you play as a lady if you want?

Yeah it's a new Fallout game... but does it have the Wild Wasteland trait?
