ENDED - Community Challenge: September 2017 - Sports, Sports, Sports - Is your whole life just sports?

September is quite the transition month in the US. End of summer, sure, but so many things begin in and around September - one of the most notable is SPORTS! As gamers, many of us don’t have the necessary athletic ability to partake in said activities, but we sure can play video games about them.

So here we go:


This challenge is earning achievements in games under some sport genre. I don’t want to get into the weeds about whether Horse Racing or Competitive Eating are “Sports”, so I may be a little lenient with the term.

Most games should be easy to classify - others may be more gray area.

Entry Methods:

  1. You can earn 1 raffle draw for every achievement in a qualified game.

Current Qualified Games: (not a complete list, but updating as questions or submissions come in)
Rocket League
Racing Games (i.e. Forza, Horse Racing, Kart racers)
Poker specific games (Prominence Poker)
Professional Wrestling

Non Qualified Games: (these do not count - also not a complete list)
eSports Games (i.e. Call Of Duty, Smite, Halo)
Collectible Card Games (i.e. Magic The Gathering)
Red Dead Redemption (despite containing Poker, Dice, and Horse Racing)

Good luck.

Upcoming months:
October: First Person Shooters
November: X Gonna Give It To Ya!
December: Right Jolly Old Elf

Are all racing games ok? Was wondering about things like kart racers, obviously not a sport but it seems that the racing month has gone and been incorporated with sports this month. Just wanted clarification if possible @Freamwhole. Thanks

I am counting Poker specific games. Not games that have poker elements.

I will count Kart racers as well.

We had a detailed discussion about what constitutes a sport during our last Titanfall boost. It is a fine line.

Rocket League - Certifiable
Rocket League - Storm Trooper

@Freamwhole Does Rare Replay count with RC Pro-Am & RC Pro-Am 2, Slalom, & Cobra Triangle as sports games within the game?

Only 4 out of 30 games but a bunch of achievements for them.:ok_hand:

6 in Fifa 14
1 in DiRT 3
1 in Rocket League
1 in OlliOlli
1 in Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012
1 in Pumped BMX + If being similar to OlliOlli makes it count as sports game

Since you are counting poker, I can only assume that billiards would count. Plus the fact that I didn’t play any other “sports” this month.
