Let us not forget that in the second (2018) edition, RJHarrison was the first to successfully complete all 50 challenges, a feat that has yet to be duplicated.

Cheers! Despite having less time for working on reviews at the present time, I'll still be following the topic closely. Looking forward to reading the reviews that start coming in for this year's edition!

Hoping to beat my lowly record of 13 last year, knocked off two in January which is a good start, but I'm also planning on playing at least five pre-PS3 games (which I don't review) this year, which would mean I'd need to be beat at least 19 games this year, probably a bridge too far, but I guess we'll see.
