Press Start: The Final Sprint to Beat 50 Games in 2020

If you've been listening to Ode to Games this year, you know I have a goal to beat 50 games in 2020. It started as kind of a joke goal I didn't think was achievable, but the quarantine gave me more time to catch up on my backlog this spring.


Here's a list of everything I've finished this year so far:


  1. Life is Strange 2

  2. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

  3. To The Moon

  4. Twilight Princess HD

  5. Groundhog Day Like Father Like Son

  6. No More Heroes

  7. Star Fox Zero

  8. Sonic Lost World 3DS

  9. Uncharted 4 (twice)

  10. Judgment

  11. No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

  12. Uncharted

  13. Animal Crossing New Horizons

  14. Final Fantasy VII Remake

  15. Uncharted 2

  16. Uncharted 3

  17. Super Mario Galaxy

  18. Final Fantasy VII

  19. Super Mario Galaxy 2

  20. Murder by Numbers

  21. Fire Emblem Three Houses

  22. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX

  23. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

  24. Ocarina of Time 3D

  25. Moving Out

  26. The Last of Us

  27. The Last of Us Part II (twice)

  28. F-Zero

  29. F-Zero Maximum Velocity

  30. Farcry 5

  31. Super Mario Bros.

As of today, there are 112 days left in 2020, and I have to beat 19 more games. 112/19 is roughly 5.9, which means I have to beat one game every 6 days for the rest of the year.


I'm very close to the end of Super Mario Bros. 2 and Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered. I'm a decent part of the way through Ghost of Tsushima, Super Mario Bros. 2, and Paper Mario: The Origami King.


I still think it can happen. I have a number of games in the backlog where I'm just steps from the finish line, and I have time to knock out a few longer experiences, too.


If only Fall Guys and Monster Hunter weren't so distracting...
