Final week we lastly wrapped up 2022, a chaotic 12 months by any metric. Since this week has been comparatively gradual (for me, as I didn’t attend CES), and within the curiosity of maintaining issues lighthearted, let’s discuss what we’re going to do as players in 2023. I’ll begin — listed below are the issues I plan to do that 12 months to raised myself as a gamer and author.
First decision: I’ll try to work my means by no less than my 2022 backlog. If you happen to learn my listing final week, you understand there are a number of 2022 titles I didn’t get the possibility to play. However final 12 months I additionally had pesky private issues to do like get married, which minimize down on attainable sport time. So this 12 months, let’s see if we will’t chisel off extra of that to lastly play The Mortuary Assistant. Okay, I’m joking, however critically, I don’t like lacking main video games. It cuts down on my literacy as a video games author and provides me FOMO.
Second decision: I’m going to try to be a extra social gamer this 12 months. It’s time to lastly step from the pandemic hidey-hole. I shall try to submit extra about what I’m taking part in on social media and I’ll additionally attempt to stream. I shall additionally — shiver — try to play extra multiplayer titles. I like the gaming neighborhood. It’s how I met the opposite half of the aforementioned marriage. So I want to quash my mortification and revel in some gamer firm once more.
That’s all I’ve received (no less than so far as gaming goes), but when anybody else is making game-related resolutions, be happy to drop me a line on Twitter. May as properly get began on the second decision immediately.
On a (extra) private observe, I’m already making some headway on constructing my video games listing for 2023. I do know of no less than one new sport that launched on New Yr’s Day.
