On the seventh day of Blogmas, the gamers asked of me, six game and blog resolutions.
It’s the seventh day, of you hadn’t noticed from the previous two times I wrote ‘seventh’. Athena keeps the pace going, and I’m tagging along with the next part of the twelve days of Blogmas, with a post that’s a bit more on time. Today is all about resolutions seeing as it’s New Year’s Day! Let’s get going!
1. Don’t worry about the backlog
Similar to last year, I’m not going to worry that much about my backlog. I’m going to use it as something I can dip into when I haven’t got something I want to play right away. It’s a good thing to have plenty to fall back on!
2. Give up on more games
‘Giving up more’ sounds like a silly resolution, but it links into my previous answer. If a game isn’t clicking with me, I intend to give up on it. I’d rather lose the money I spent on it than the time I’d waste playing something I’m simply not enjoying.
3. Try to play online more
I’m not a huge fan of online gaming, but I’ll dip into it here and there. I wouldn’t mind doing a bit more of it with friends and other members of the blogging community. I find online gaming a touch intimidating these days as I lack the time to learn a game compared to the good old days, but I shouldn’t let that stop me.
4. Replay more
I’d like to take more opportunities to replay games I’ve enjoyed before. I tend to get so blinkered with the new releases that I forget about the ones I had actual fun playing. It wouldn’t be back to rectify that.
5. Avoid the Steam sale
Honestly, Steam has a sale every 8 weeks these days. I shouldn’t rush to buy something during it only to leave it in the backlog. There’ll be another sale. I’ll wait.
6. Stop blogging being a chore
I’ve not missed a single Sunday in nearly three years of blogging. It’s starting to feel like a slog here and there, so maybe it’s time for a break. Perhaps even an extended one. I’m not getting the same enjoyment from this that I used to, so I’m thinking about taking a step back and having fun gaming again. I’m not sure yet, but we’ll see.
That are your gaming resolutions for 2019?
