Creative Christmas: New Years Gaming Resolution

New Years Gaming Resolution - A response to Creative Christmas, Day 11

Continuing our journey for Creative Christmas; this is a collaboration formed by community bastion Later Levels, full of tasty festive posts from a growing band of WordPress bloggers.

Question: Midnight eventually rolls around, which means it’s now time to pick a New Year gaming resolution to see you through the next 12 months. What’s your [gaming resolution] choice for 2018?

Jon: Continue to regain that sense of wonder and discovery while playing a game and not rush through in an attempt just to beat the damn game.

Dan: I’ve got to get my backlog under control and finish some freakin’ games. Horizon Zero Dawn and the first Destiny must tumble first.

I’ve promised myself not to buy anything else, despite all the insanely tempting offers, there’s got to be a one in and one out rule. I’ve put my whole backlog on https://howlongtobeat.com and the challenge is on!

Multiplayer games are the problem. Do I play something on my own, while everyone else is playing Overwatch? Well of course not!

Disclaimer, anything purchased during the current Steam Winter Sale doesn’t count :p

Dan’s Wife: Get around to playing the Crash Bandicoot Remastered, which someone needs to buy for me!!!

Dan: Good job Santa came through then!

Woop: Every year, for the last 5/6 years, I have made the resolution to play through Half-Life 1 and 2, to the end. Maybe this year will be the year?

Dan: “They’re waiting for you Gordon, in the test chamber.”

I highly recommend playing them both, and the episodes. If you’d rather watch someone play it, I’ve been thinking of recording a play-through to test the whole YouTube thing.

If you finish either game, I’ll fulfil my promise to complete the first Mirrors Edge haha. They’ve rebooted it since I first made that promise!

Woop: Deal.

  1. I totally agree: nothing bought in the Steam sale counts towards current backlog. At least that what I’ve been telling myself after pulling out my card details…

    Happy New Year to you all, hope 2018 is good to you! 😀

    1. Happy New Year! Is steam games bought in the same not counting towards the backlog the same as Christmas calories not actually counting? If so then I’m on board with that theory!
