I did a post earlier talking about the games we are all playing the most right now, the currently playing list if you will, and it hit me earlier: there is more to a game than just playing! There are challenges in each game you have to beat to see the finale of all things! Most games aren’t too hard to get through story wise, at least not the first time. But man, Digimon World Cyber Sleuth was a beast, it took me over 50 hours to beat just the base story! That aside, all of the major games I’m playing lately offer some sort of really hard challenge, and I’m betting yours do too! So let’s talk a little about it, see if we have made it through challenges in each others games, etc!
For one I’ve been playing Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection and the first Sonic game is a part of that. To this day I’ve never collected all of the Chaos Emeralds!! That’s a hard challenge for me, hard enough it has spanned decades, literally. Sonic Generations is a game that’s a perfect example of a game that’s not all that hard to get through story wise but offers a lot of extra challenges, plus all A ranks, and I’ve never achieved either in this game before, so I have something to aim for there for sure.
And Arkham Knight, omg, that game offers SO much more to do! Riddler trophies, all of the AR challenges and needing to get 3 starts with each character, and more! That game offers more to do than just about all of the other games I’m currently playing. Which on the one hand is great, it means there is a very high replay value, but man I feel overwhelmed when I see how much more I lack in the game overall. Sonic Heroes is a game that I have a lot to gain in too challenge wise but I’ve mastered that game 100% back in the day so if I can’t do it right now that’s fine by me, I don’t mind leaving that one uncovered right now.
I mentioned Cyber Sleuth a bit ago and I have the 7 Demon Lords to beat, and those guys are HARD, way harder than any other boss in the game bar none, so that’s a big thing for me to aim for. NASCAR Heat Evolution has a major challenge in the online field, as in playing online against other real people and winning races there. Winning against the A.I. is one thing, but it’s an entirely different beast when taking on real people, so that’s something to try to beat. There are a lot of challenges overall in the games I’m playing that I’d like to reach, but these are the biggest ones I’m aiming for by far. Sonic, Digimon, and Batman. How about you? Which game challenge(s) do you have your sights set on right now? Let me know in the comments!
