To start us off, here are mine:
My number one goal this year is simply to beat Resident Evil 7. I started it way back in March…2017 and have yet to finish it. The main reason it’s taking me so long is because I’ve committed myself to playing through the entire thing in VR (which I’m still absolutely determined to do). But between the hassle of VR setup, the sheer intensity of playing that game in virtual reality, and the slight VR sickness I experience when playing it for long stretches of time, this means I only tend to play it in short bursts
and usually with a multi-week break between sessions. But I’ve decided this is the year I’m going to go all in and finally finish it (and I’ve even told myself that I can’t touch the upcoming RE8) until I do. Wish me luck!
My second goal is a bit broader, and it’s to add another fighting game to my repertoire. The goal isn’t even really to get good at it, I just have a desire to invest myself in another one. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the one fighting game I play semi-regularly and that I’d consider myself remotely “good” at. Despite loving the genre and owning quite a few other fighting games, whenever I pick up a new one, I tend not to stick with it for very long, even if I’m enjoying it. So this year, I’d like to pick one and try to stick with it like I do with Smash.
And finally a very niche bonus goal: In 2019, I got back into Dance Dance Revolution after a couple year hiatus, and in the few months leading up to coronavirus lockdowns in the US, I found myself improving quite significantly. So once it’s safe again to do so, I’d like to regularly hit up arcades again to up my DDR game and get myself to the point where I can comfortably take on level 16 songs!
