Spring Cleaning Challenge!

I was inspired by the Raptr contest called

Raptr Spring Cleaning Challenge: Tame your 2012 pile of shame

 I'm a pretty organized person so instead of a pile, I have a shelf of shamefully yet-to-be-played/finished games.  Some of the them are still wrapped.  There are reasons.  There are always reasons. I have imaginary rules for everything and I feel uncomfortable and unsettled if I break them.

The Raptr contest is basically this: you get one entry for each game on the list that you complete within the time frame.  For a game to be considered complete, you have to have earned the story-ending achievement.  

Since I have several games on the list, I thought I might be able to bang a few out before the deadline.  I have completed The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Far Cry 3, The Darkness II during the challenge, and am currently finishing Lollipop Chainsaw, Halo 4, Borderlands 2, and Call of Duty Black Ops II.  Unfortunately I finished Dishonored a few days before the contest started :(
The other games from the Raptr list that I have and could complete to get an entry:
  • Borderlands 2
  • Black Ops II
  • Final Fantasy XIII-2 (I seriously thought I had finished this one!)
  • Halo 4
  • Journey
  • Lollipop Chainsaw
  • Mass Effect 3
Most of those are tough and/or massive.  For instance, I accidentally deleted my super-complete Mass Effect 1 &2 save file when I started Mass Effect 3, and  I haven't been able to bring myself to replay them because it makes me furious at myself! And according to The Kate-Rules of Gameplay, I HAVE to replay them in order; ME is not going to happen.  I'm really glad I saw this challenge as I was inspired to play some of these great games that I have been putting off while I was working on other projects. Spring cleaning has never been so much fun!
