Your going to find out pretty soon that I may be a bit behind on a few things. But all I can say is thank God retro gaming is about the past, and I have time to catch up, and even learn about the bad stuff without experiencing it. Of course keep in mind this all refers to retro-gaming.
So here we are two days until the start of the new year. And of course at this time of year everybody thinks about their New Year’s resolutions. Sure I could talk about the whole losing weight, losing a bad habits, gaining this, losing that thing that everybody usually does when it come’s to New Year’s resolutions. But I decided that I would much rather make my New Year’s resolutions based upon retro gaming.
Usually when someone makes a New Year’s resolution it’s all about leaving comfort zones. Then again sometimes it’s not always about leaving comfort zones, rather it’s just about completing a list of things that you really want to complete and often procrastinate on. For instance I have this friend who makes a list of books that he wants to read through in the New Year, and he tries to get all the way through that list if he can before December 31st creeps up again. Like him I’m going to give it my best shot to work through my list and I’d like to encourage you to make some retro gaming New Year’s resolutions of your home and of course yours welcome to follow along with mine.
#1 Play a Final Fantasy
game, not necessarily to the finish but just to try to play it. I’ve never played one before and I’ve never had any interest to, but everybody rants and raves about the series so I got to give it a try guess.
#2 Finally finish Super Mario Brothers 3. I more or less had the game since it was new and all these years later I have yet to finish it.
#3 Not retro mind you, but play and finish Halo ODST
#4 Get an Atari 5200 and 7800.
#5 Play Starfox all the way through
#6 Leave my comfort zone and learn how to play both Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter 2.
#7 Find my PS1 and games, and if I can’t get a new one.
#8 Attend a retro video game convention
#9 Make my wife come to learn and enjoy retro gaming with me
#10 Keep writing this blog
Okay you have to admit it’s nothing totally crazy, but I’m leaving my comfort zone here and there and I have set some goals for myself. Not only that I made it an even 10 items to do.
With that being said dear reader do you have any retro gaming resolutions for 2014? If so be sure to share because I think we all like to hear what kind of ideas you have for the type of retro gaming you would like to do next year.
Thanks again for reading and Happy New Year!
