    Question: My question is can the game be started this year?
    Yes, they can but the 'beat the game trophy' part of it or the trophy related to the specific challenge must be done in 2020. If you started God of War and then walked away its not negated

    Question: The other question is once you place it in a category is it locked in or are you able to move games around if you decide something fits in a criteria better
    Answer: you can change at will, just announce what your moving

    Question: That is a lot to track
    Answer: Not a question really but I've done this on other forums for years, the best way is to check in weekly/monthly and see what you've done and how it fits. Until you get down to the last few you don't really need to usually go too far out of your way.

    Sign me up toast

    I have other goals for 2020 that will take precedent, but happy to be in this and see how it goes. If it looks like I am getting close I will likely go for a big wrap up towards the end of the year!

    As for the amount of tracking, that doesn't bother me at all... I am that guy that likes stats and keeping track of things a little too much laugh

    This looks like a lot of fun! One of my major gaming projects for 2020 is tackling the PS3 backlog and it looks like this challenge could dovetail quite nicely with that.

    I'll do my best, anyway smile

    Beating the story mode for Frostpunk (the A New home Scenario) is probably the most "snowy city" criteria possible.

    Also if you value your completion percentage, stay away. Fun city builder but that Extreme Endless mode is brutal.

    Glad I saw this - I need motivation to start playing more on the Playstation. Doubt I'll get anywhere near done, but this sounds like fun. Thanks for running it!
