When I told my wife my New Years’ resolution this year she laughed and said: “I don’t believe you.” I told her I wasn’t buying any new games this year and would finish the ones I already had. Then I thought about it some more and I agree with her I couldn’t do it. So I refined said resolution to buying only games that I know I want to play as soon as I buy them. Currently, there are only 3 coming out in 2020 that meet these criteria.
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX
- Cyberpunk 2077
I can confidently say that 20 days into 2020 I have purchased 0 new games on a whim. So far so good. I also decided that DLC for games I finish is fine to buy if I want to play it and free to play games I’ve already played are fair game as well. Right now my stable of games include Warframe, Monster Hunter World, Sanctum 2, and Kingdoms of Amular: Reckoning
I love New Year’s resolutions. Sure they may seem silly sometimes and cliche I think they’re still worth making. It’s a chance to look at the year ahead and think about, in a perfect world what would I like to accomplish this year.
We’re gonna get personal here for a minute. For the first time since I graduated college some 5 years ago, I’m content with where my life and career are right now. I spent the first few years out of college trying to figure out what I was going to do with a BA in History. In 2018, I started a career in IT and as of a month ago landed at one of the best places to work in my area. So I am really grateful that I can stop chasing the next job and settle into a place for a few years. Perfect timing for a less serious resolution.
