So as I SLOWLY approach the top 2000 on the site, I must reflect on the insanely frustrating goal this was to make.
When I first made the goal, I had to get to 200K TT points, which is why I had that as a goal. When I get 200K, the 2000th spot was around 215K TT. Now as I'm about to leave the 2200s, the top 2000 start at 225K TT. The struggle is real.
I keep moving up by leaps and bounds, but the goal always seems farther and farther out of reach. Frustrating, absolutely, but I found a weird motivation and silver lining.
As my goal seems to be getting further and further away, I found that my need to achieve my goal is taking precedence in my gaming. Rather than watch it get further and further away and slip through my fingers at the end of the year and having a failed goal, I'm chasing it with extreme determination. Mainly because I have a little competitive nature with myself and if I set a goal, I want to achieve it. With all the other goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year, it would be a damn shame for this one to be the one I fail at.
And my backlog is decreasing! I held onto several games that were easy plats, trying to focus on big releases so I could enjoy the ones that were popular more. I knew I would get to them eventually. 'They're easy and I can crank them out, no problem,' I thought on many occasions. Well, now's the time to crank them out, clear out hard drives, shrink my backlog list! Damn all those puzzle and telltale games taunting me with their easy plats, but huge time commitments! Those plats are now mine, bitches, and so is this goal! Sly Cooper plats? On the list! Lego games unfinished? MINE! The backlog of easy, but not that much fun games will decrease!
But seriously, watching a 50K goal turn into a 75K+ goal and counting...I appreciate the challenge, but could it stop getting exponentially further away?!
