I want to be more selective with what games I play... a lot of times this year I felt like I was just going through the motions with certain games, and not really enjoying it so much. Have to be more selective!

I've started to recently understand how less can be more and by being a little more minimalist, I can focus on the things that I value the most without all of the other clutter getting in the way. I realize now that I used to enjoy gaming much more back when I did not have the money to buy everything that I wanted. In recent years, I've bought so much stuff that it just stresses me out since I will never have enough time to play all of it, so I try to just rush through games instead of taking the time to really enjoy them.

So, in recent months, I've started to reduce my gaming systems and game collection and I will continue working on that into the new year. My goal is to get my gaming systems down to just a dozen and keeping at most my two favorite systems per each generation and to reduce my game collection to no more than 5 to 10 games per each system. Then the stuff that remains will be my favorites and I will be able to focus and enjoy them without all of other clutter getting in my way.

Get a 4k TV with higher refresh rate so that I can enjoy higher resolutions and fps above 60. I think its time I moved up.

To buy fewer games and finish more of the games I've already paid for. I've got games like MGS V and The Witcher just waiting to be played but have had a hard time getting going with them because they're such a time investment. I just have to jump in and dedicate myself.

Also play more co-op with homies like @Heil68 and @cainetao11 because they're righteous dudes, and some day I too would like to be righteous, just like them.

To never buy a PS4 (sorry starting with the real easy ones first)

To rile up cows even more by posting in VR threads, maybe let "slip" more info LMFAO.

Own even more cows than I did this year, that shouldn't be too hard considering all the cow alts that pop up all the time.

Stay away from purchasing games digitally.

Now for some hard ones

Play more games, well not really more games just game more.

Post a little less on here, even though owning cows is so much fun :)

To never buy a Xbox X

Rile up all factions, since I am a verified unbiased poster. Maybe bring up Kinect(lol) the 500 million dollar blunder thats "integral to Xbox" that MS properly shit canned. LMFAO.

Own even more lems since the Xbox flopped in sales in gen 8 and will never overtake current gen 8 console leader SONY and the world class gaming of PS4

Stay away from purchasing games day and not play them when I could of waited for price drop.

Play more games, with friends

Post a little more on here, so I dont hardly post or really never had. I like spreading truth and to fight the injustices of people who are too attached to peice of plastic.

Yeah Mine is to plug my Pro in again and get online with you and Heil again LOL. X1X, Switch and WiiU have been eating my gaming time.

Buy less games on sales and only buy games that I feel strongly towards... I buy way too many games barely put 10 hours into them simply because they were hyped or popular games.

Moving from 1440p/60fps to 1440p/144Hz on my monitor. But most importantly, play lots of games as I always do in ever new year resolution.

  • Lay off on game purchases
  • complete a game or two a month

I have owned Zelda BOTW since September and still haven't opened it. Similar issue with digital copies of Fallout 4 and FFXV. Bought them on sale a while back and maybe put an hour into each. Gotta stop pissing away money unless I am 100% gonna play it a bunch right away.

Probably spend even less time on SW.

Otherwise, just keep doing what I do.

I should say working on my backlist and buy time to be more frugal and wait for sales on newer games... but I'm way too compulsive for that, plus I've said that for years, fact is I still acquire shit faster than I can play it. But, at very least, quitting smoking should free up a couple hundred dollars a month so that's extra money I can use toward my entertainment expenses. Maybe I'll upgrade my sound system next.

The Xbox didn't flop though, just because its not the sales leader ( mainly because Microsoft goofed up and not because of Sony dominating anything ) does not make it a flop, the system still sold millions and has a huge fan base, not hardly a flop.

I guarantee the most popular answer will be related to a backlog of unfinished/untouched games. We buy them in the sale, and then....

To appreciate the time and experience I have while I am playing a game; To not take that for granted and rush through game passively.

2018 is the year to save money by streaming PS4 exclusives on Youtube. It should offer the same experience to "playing" the games.
