So guys and gals, it's a new year again. That means plenty of people will be making new year's resolutions they likely won't keep ( lose weight / spend less money / stop smoking / stop masturbating to your sister in law / etc. ). So I thought it might be fun for us to make a few gaming resolutions, and then see whether or not we kept them come 2014. So feel free to publicly make a resolution if you so dare.
Here are my own personal 2013 gaming resolutions:
I will NOT force myself to beat any game that does not remain consistently fun and entertaining.
I have a habit of making myself complete most games I start playing, often way past the part where the game stops being fun (if it ever was). I'm not sure why I do this, some sort of overly dedicated mindset I guess. However, that ends this year. If I'm playing a game that I have to force myself to keep playing... something's obviously wrong and I'm wasting my time. I might finish fewer games now, but the ones I do finish will at least be worth the effort.
I will NOT buy any new game until I've read a terrible review, a mediocre review, and a highly praising review for said game.
I've bought way too many games lately, and I'm having a hard time storing them, let alone justifying the financial expenditure. I think by using Sarge's method I'll have a better understanding of all the angles of any particular potential purchase.
I will NOT fall into massive frivolous arguments on RHDN anymore.
I don't know what happened in 2012, but last year seemed to bring out the worst in all of us. I saw more pointless arguing on this board than ever before (IME), and 90% of it was utterly useless ego tripping shit. I will straight up claim to be the single most blatant purveyor of that behavior last year. Well, I'm done with that. I'm just going to say what I honestly think and if anyone disagrees I just won't care. Even if there's factual evidence to prove I'm right, I'm not gonna bother sourcing it. All that damned arguing never changes anyone's mind anyway. Water-slides everywhere! Let's all try to make this a more welcoming upbeat place to hang.
So those are my resolutions. Anyone else care to challenge themselves, and chime in with their own personal proclamation(s)?
