    I'm going to actually play through an entire Civilization game instead of starting a new one when it doesn't go my way

    I'm going to get through my backlog. The titles I have left to play are:

    Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions
    Spider-Man Edge of Time
    Infamous 2
    Darksiders

    After that, I'm actually going to immediately start playing a game when I get it rather than put it off for a month or two. Unless I'm in the middle of something when Mass Effect 3 comes out. At which point everything gets dropped for that.

    I will get a new Xbox 360 since my old one broke down.

    Not buy any new games - excepting Mass Effect 3 and MGS:HDC - until I start beating my backlog.

    Gonna try and make it to platinum league in Starcraft 2. I jumped up two leagues the first half a year the game was out, but I stayed on Gold this entire year. blah.

    I'm going to actually complete as many games as I can this year. It'll take a while but I'll still try.

    Man, I'm so guilty of this one too. That and restarting to reduce difficulty or otherwise stack the deck in my favour ...


    My resolution: to resist Steam sales. They're how I've ended up with a huge stack of games I'll never play ...

    1) Find a way to get interested in Skyrim.
    2) Play Mass Effect 3 'til I get every possible ending with either Bro or FemShep...unless the final product dissapoints me to the point of my becoming a weeping wreck of a man.
    3) Never buy another shooter.

    To have the time and patience to finish Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations.

    Attempt to beat various old video games (probably won't).

    That's funny. My patience was tested so much by previous AC games that I completely lost interest in Revelations.

    Really? You're one of the biggest ac fans I know.

    I just started Revelations btw. Good start, but it slowed down a lot since the intro.

    I'm still enjoying it, but yeah, it may be a while before I do another ac game.

    My new years resolution is still 1920x1080. I thought about getting a bigger monitor, but my GPU has enough work to do as it is.

    I rented it yesterday off a Redbox kiosk just to kill some time. I'm really not feeling it. Too much been-there-done-that. And some of the innovations (in particular the Den Defense minigame) have left me cold. I'm glad I didn't dish out $60 for it when it first came out (and now I've seen copies being sold at $40 over at GameStop).

    I would say these ones but I know there's no way I'm keeping them.

    To progress more than an hour in an Elder Scrolls game.

    Or if I don't have good resources (namely stone) after my first 2-3 cities. Or if I don't like the color of my civ.

    Well, I'm almost 50% done with this year's resolution. Regarding the first part, I just started Infamous 2 this past week and I intend to get some off it done this weekend...up until I pick up my Wii U. At which point I'll be dropping it again. So far I like the first Infamous much better.

    As for the second part of my resolution, that was a complete bust. I delayed most of my games this past year to some extent and I added significantly to my backlog due to some awesome Humble Indie Bundles and GOG.com sales.

    Well I sunk a hundred hours or so into Skyrim so I guess I made mine.

    I now want another Platinum Trophy before the end of the year...AC2 is the game. Stupid feathers.
