It may be extreme tiredness talking, or it may be me trying to get my money's worth out of my gaming, but I have decided to set myself a challenge to go through my digital gaming catalogue, starting with Steam, playing through each title (not necessarily to completion) and writing a review of each one based on my experiences.

I currently have 510 Steam games (I'm a sucker for Steam sales and Humble Bundles) so this will take me a while. If I ever finish it, I will move on to other catalogues, whether that's my PS Vita, 3DS, Origin (yuck, :)) or GOG, but I'm just interested in seeing how far I can go with this before I either burn out or lose interest.

Obviously some games are old, some are recent, so this will be quite varied. I'll put the list of those I've reviewed below incase anyone wants to follow this.

My limitations will be time (which is why this will take me a while). I have three children now - my youngest born almost two weeks ago, so I only get a couple of hours per night (at most) to play. And I will no doubt get distracted by other things. So again, this is more of a personal challenge.

Feel free to follow this and let me know what you think. My Steam ID is darkedgy if anyone wants to add me, just let me know who you are too. And perhaps I'll ask for suggestions on what to play next.

Every challenge has to have a start - so working alphanumerically, I'll start with 140.

(to give you an idea, I have also included total times played at time of review)

I eventually found the time to complete The War Chiefs. Am now playing through the second expansion. The review of War Chiefs will probably come with the Asian Dynasties as there is very little to add to my original review of AoEIII in the first expansion.

Steam...Why are you now telling me it's 565 games?

Slightly uphill challenge ahead of me still...

Surely Frozen needs to be reviewed? :D

My wife downloaded the mobile version (assuming its the same game) a while back - I think she intended it for my eldest to occupy himself with, but she got addicted to it for a while.

I haven't tried it myself...

I'm still here...been playing a range of games - Deer God, Frozen Snowball Fight (wish I hadn't) and Halo Master Chief Edition. Plus lots of other non-game related tasks too!

I'm with DL on Shadow Warrior (remake) it's one of the most fun video games I've ever played.

I also cannot wait for the sequel, it looks awesome! Really hope it sells as it deserves to as its predecessor was stupidly underrated IMHO.

In which case that's what is next on my list :)

At some point I'll have to move to the classic version - which will be interesting as I've not really played it since I got it in a steam sale. I'm used to playing the original before the remake :)

Was it the remake, or the classic I was meant to be trying?

It was the superb remake Edgy :)
