  • BlackHawkBlackHawk Bible music connoisseur There's no place like Icrontian
    My condolences. All the GTA is going to be long.
  • ThraxThrax 🐌 Austin, TX Icrontian
    Yeah, like 10 work weeks of play time. UGGHHHHHh I don't even like GTA that much.
  • MiracleManSMiracleManS Chambersburg, PA Icrontian
    I hope you enjoy playing GTA III twice.
  • And that is the part of this whole thing that doesn't make sense.
  • MrTRiotMrTRiot Northern Ontario Icrontian
    Have fun with that. Think you'll be done by 2014?
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian

    And that is the part of this whole thing that doesn't make sense.

    ... Wait.... any of this makes sense?
  • TIL there is a game called VVVVVV .
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Yes, and it's not easy. I got several hours in but beating it is going to be REALLY hard.
  • And that is the part of this whole thing that doesn't make sense.

    ... Wait.... any of this makes sense?

    The part where you play games you own but haven't played before. But forcing yourself to finish/play 10 hours of a game you hate playing is dumb.
  • pragtasticpragtastic Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Like Super Meat Boy hard?
  • Faster Than Light is not exactly easy to beat either. This list is just overwhelming.
  • ThraxThrax 🐌 Austin, TX Icrontian
    I don't hate any of the games I've purchased. That's why I bought them. But there are some games, like GTA, that I can only take in moderation. NO PAIN NO GAIN.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian

    Like Super Meat Boy hard?

    Not quite as hard, but it's up there.

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian

    And that is the part of this whole thing that doesn't make sense.

    ... Wait.... any of this makes sense?

    The part where you play games you own but haven't played before. But forcing yourself to finish/play 10 hours of a game you hate playing is dumb.
    I think you're just mad that this will take us away from PoE with you :P Don't be a meanie pants.
  • ThraxThrax 🐌 Austin, TX Icrontian
    James Jennings is getting his 10 hours of "stick in the mud." I completed that challenge ages ago, but it's a game you cannot win. You merely get better at it.
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime Icrontian
    We'll be long done with our 2050 TF2 match before this list is complete.

    DAY 1:

  • TeramonaTeramona Consulting Tea Specialist Best Coast! Icrontian

  • WinfreyWinfrey waddafuh Missouri Icrontian
