Participating in Reddit’s “12 in 12” Challenge


About two weeks ago I stumbled upon a post that someone had made in a gaming subreddit discussing gaming backlogs and how to progress through them. Another user offered the idea to have a community support subreddit called “12 in 12 Challenge”. Seeing as I have a huge problem in keeping up with my gaming backlog, I was like “Alright. Let’s check this out.” Here is the basic rundown of what this challenge is:

A lot of gamers have built up a sizable backlog of games they haven’t gotten around to finishing or even trying for the first time. With bundles and sales so tempting, it’s easy to rack up a large library! Take the 12in12 challenge and knock down your backlog while having fun. A little community support can go a long way towards meeting your goals.

How It Works

  1. Organize your backlog.
  2. Pick 12 games that you want to complete.
  3. Play one each month.
  4. Post about your progress and encourage others.

You can find more information on the subreddit FAQ page here.

It seems pretty doable, so I joined! I haven’t really given much thought to what games I want to play, so instead of pre-planning the list I’m just going to make it as I go. I think that if I really put my mind to it, I can get farther than 12 games…but we’ll see. I have two really heavy multiplayer games coming out this month that I will probably concentrate on, not to mention a steady League of Legends habit.

Here’s to completing 12 (or more!) games this year!
