Happy New Year! Also, #bump#

Credit goes to tazzyboyishere for first starting this in 2016. Basically, there are 50 challenges outlined below that will require you to beat 52 games total. This isn't a competition and there's no prize for winning aside from a sense of accomplishment. This is just a fun thing to participate in while we all work through our video game libraries. It also gives us a place to discuss what we're playing. Feel free to join in!

Rules:
- A single playthrough of a game can only be used for one challenge
- Use your own judgment to decide if game fits in a certain category
- Games started in 2017 or earlier are fine as long as they're finished in 2018
- Please add your own games to the spreadsheet linked to below, which anyone can edit
- When using the spreadsheet, please don't mess with checklists/tallies that aren't yours
- There's a tab listing favorite games in the spreadsheet if you need help with Challenge 43
- If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I'll take your hand and you can take me here, up to the Satellite Cafe.

Time to do this again. I have a seemingly endless supply of short-ish Steam games to ensure that I reach 50.

Give a good greeting. Try not to give up. Sleep well, eat well. If you're troubled, talk to someone! You're likely to succeed if you try.

The topic only died four times last year, actually, and two of those were in November/December. The first two versions lasted five months each!

Besides, I used GMUN's auto-bump thing for this topic so this one shouldn't purge unless that breaks down somehow.
