Some people make New Years Resolutions, some people don't. I've promised myself to stop being so competitive when it comes to gaming.

It all came about after someone said it was impossible to finish Assassin's Creed: Unity at 100%. Of course, competitive me took it as a challenge and basically set out to 100% the game. This, despite not really enjoying the seemingly infinite amounts of side quests and trying to unlock ENDLESS amounts of chests that for various (stupid) reasons can't be unlocked. After joylessly grinding through a fair amount, someone pointed out that it would be far more helpful if I just left it, as that would look more representative of my feelings towards the game in the statistics that every publisher collects from their titles – not enjoying it, stop playing. I usually live by this; I never buy games I'm not 100% interested in and I stop playing when I stop enjoying it. But if someone challenges me... that's a different story.

My new years gaming resolutions will be as follows:
- Stop being so competitive, it's not good for sanity.
- Don't take on challenges I know I won't enjoy.
- Stop take EVERYTHING as a challenge/competition (stop being stubborn).

Those are some well thought out resolutions!

I guess mine would be to stop buying every title on launch day. I have a LOT of Xbox one games and I haven't finished half of them (heck, I haven't even booted some of them). When I couldn't buy Lego Batman 3 on launch day due to a credit card issue, I immediately went to town to buy Microsoft credit....I played it for 20 minutes and now it's in the sale. I waste a lot of money due to my need to have everything the instant it comes out and the backlog of unplayed titles takes away from the enjoyment as it becomes a guilty chore to clear the embarrassing list of unplayed titles on my dashboard.

So yeah, my resolution is to play the games I have before buying new ones

I say this every year, never stick to it, but hope to this year. Buy fewer games, stick to the ones I know I'm going to enjoy and actually finish and use the money I've saved for more important things. I get better at this each year but there's always at least 3 games I buy that I end up regretting doing so almost instantly, I want to see if I can cut that number down to a big, fat goose egg.

My only resolution is to get to a year on my current achievement streak (basically get at least one achievement a day). Currently on 249 days....

This. All day long, this.

I'm sat here looking at a shelf of games that I haven't started yet, or have only played a very little of. Not just for Xbox One, but for all platforms. My resolution is to play through them across the course of the year, to minimise the backlog. Every pre-Christmas launch blitz causes the same problem, but I've got games here that I just haven't touched. Dragon Age: Inquisition is one example. Decided I would play it all across Christmas. Picked it up on Christmas Eve, despite knowing it would be discounted in a few places within a day or two. Still on my shelf. Hasn't even been booted as yet.

As I enjoy the competitive Emma, I will make my gaming resolution as follows.

  • Get on Emma's competitive side, challenge her sanity.
  • Make random things like beards or hair or cats into competitions, but not beards because we have a Wookie on staff.
  • Ensure that our community manager takes everything as a challenge (Titanfall may help here).

My goal since getting the X and back into gaming is to finish games. I have a horrible history of never finishing games so I'm really trying to get that corrected. Been doing pretty good so far so I'm carrying that over for 2021. Also i want to finish all the Halos next year for the launch of Infinite.
