As you all know we have been doing some community goals, in which we try to play games in different challenges and formats. As 2018 is drawing to a close we are close with a number of those goals but have not yet made them. An overview as where we stand:

Beat 1800 videogames

https://videogamegeek.com/geeklist/235210/videogames-beaten-...

At the moment we are only just above 1500 games beaten. But every game helps. Did you beat games but have not entered them, do it now!

Play the top 201-300 games on the VGG ranking list

https://videogamegeek.com/geeklist/234718/community-goal-201...

Very close to this. 8 games are still on the list to get played, no need to beat them 5 hours of game time is more then enough:

206 / Call of Duty
218 / Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U - Cricky 1 hour (26th Dec)
231 / God of War (2005) - Taibi (possibly)
253 / Suikoden - Taibi (possibly)
254 / Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
259 / Battlefield 3
269 / Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations - Cricky 1 hour (26th Dec)
276 / Paper Mario - andrewhodkinson 3 hours (24th Dec)

Play games on 5 different platforms

https://videogamegeek.com/geeklist/235508/community-goal-201...

We have 19 users at the moment, but we need 30 who have played on at least 5 platforms. So we are still looking for 11 users. Not yet on the list, go over there and do so now.

Collectively play on 51 different platforms

https://videogamegeek.com/geeklist/235516/community-goal-201...?

45 platforms have been played on and logged this year. Please help us with the last 6!

Yes I know we are still not done celebrating Halloween yet (btw: did you change your avatar?) but we are already preparing for the next big event and this always takes some time: Christmas!

Two of our traditional celebrations have opened up to sign ups!

ChristmasblankCards

Send cards to other VGG'ers and bring joy to everyone's heart at the right time of the year.

2016 VideoGameGeek Christmas Card Exchange

SecretblankSanta

Get a target and surpise him or her with awesome videogames for their christmas. But who is going to get you a present? (In my case probably Jonna)

We have beaten the first community goal of the year:

Community goal 2016: Let's together beat games from each year 1986–2016!

The participants should have received their first microbadge by now. Thank you all for the help.

We are still working on 5 other challenges:

1. Have the VGG community play games on each of the 118 platforms listed on the geek. 28 out of 116

2. Beat 1800 number of games in the 2016 Videogames that got beaten geeklist. 1274 games beaten so far.

3. Get the VGG community to play the top 100 games on the VGG ranking list as off 01.01.2016. 73 of 100 beaten/played

4. Let 20 users each play 5 games on different platforms. 12 out of 20 users completed this already.

As you may or may not know in 2016 we are trying to hit 6 common goals with the community. Since we're just a bit over the first half of the year I thought it would be nice to take a look at how far we have already got:


1. Have the VGG community play games on each of the 118 platforms listed on the geek.
Community goal 2016: Let's together play games from all platforms!

29 out of the 116. Yes two platforms were crossed of the list. But still this is a very hard challenge and all help is still needed!

2. Beat 1800 number of games in the 2016 Videogames that got beaten geeklist.
Videogames Beaten by VGGers in 2016

On the 15th of july, which we are as I'm posting we are just shot of 900 games beaten on this list. So we are a little bit behind the halfway point halfway the year but I think this will surely be possible to hit. I'm confident we will make this.

3. Get the VGG community to play the top 100 games on the VGG ranking list as off 01.01.2016.
Community goal 2016: Play the top 100 games on the VGG ranking list

56 out of 100 games. Nicely done, just over the halfway point with 6 months to go. Maybe these that are left will be harder to get played but we are counting on everyone to help us out!

4. Let 20 users each play 5 games on different platforms.
Community goal 2016: Play games on 5 different platforms!

We have 26 people registered to help us out on this one and 5 out of the 20 users goal have already completed this challenge. It's a fun multiplatform challenge. Come join.


5. Get 10 numbers of players together online for 4 sessions.
Keep an eye on our: Multiplayer forum

I'm afraid nothing has been done so far, multiplayer forum has gone a bit quit but hopefully we can still get this going.

6. Play a game published from every single year from 1986 till now, including 2016.
Community goal 2016: Let's together beat games from each year 1986–2016!

3 years (1999, 2006 and 2008) have not yet been beaten. So we are very close on this one.

Users who have been helping us out getting to one or more of these goals this year will also receive a special microbadge (series):

Microbadge: I helped complete a 2016 VGG community goal!
Microbadge: I helped complete two 2016 VGG community goals!
Microbadge: I helped complete three or more 2016 VGG community goals!

Thank you all so far for participating and let's beat these goals. I also want to thank three users in particular doing a great job in helping these goals been kept up to date:
