I was going to come up with some self improving life style resolutions this year, but after some thought decided to stick to a couple of gaming ones instead

So for the next year I am going to

1. Wait a couple of weeks after release before buying games - this year has seen so many drastic price cuts within a few weeks of launch, so next year I am going to benefit from these.

2. Aim for 10 platinums

3. Complete Skyrim (and pray to avoid the lag game save issue)

4. Play, complete and follow and understand the effing story in Metal Gear Solid - in HD.....

5. Persuade as many people as I can to buy Starhawk

To complete a game before I move on to another one. I have way too many unfinished games.

To complete Half-Life 1 & 2.

The only reason I bought the HL games all those years ago was to access Counter-Strike (1.3 - 1.6 were meh but Source was epic). I should really complete the campaigns so I can make a start on the HL2 Episodes and understand the story.

To platinum Uncharted 3...

My only platinum so far is Uncharted 2, and UC3 is easier than it, so should be a piece of cake!

This.

Mind it took me 2 year to plat UC2 and I haven't finished my first run through of UC3 yet. Still, no rush, it'll be a long time until we see UC4

It's a genre that I've overlooked since getting stuck on FF7 years ago and more recently not enjoying Fable II.

I've had Valkyria Chronicles sitting unopened on a shelf for months so this seems as good a game as any to start with. I bought a PSP 3000 recently and that console has many RPGS that people rate highly so I may look for those too.

As for other resolutions I'll stick to one I made on Jan 1 which worked out well for much of 2011; buy games I really want when they're cheaper.

You really don't have to wait long for the price to drop nowadays.

Mine would be

- finish more games i buy

- (as an extension to the first) stop giving up on games i have bought cheap and using the justification that i spent so little money on them if they just litter the shelve it doesn't matter

- get more platinum trophies and not just plan to and then get side tracked by new releases

buy a bigger hd for ps3

to finish the last 4 spec ops missions on 3 stars on mw3(pm if your any good and need these also)

since i have 18 plats already im goona have 30 by 2013( near with 3 or 4 or anyway so should be easy)

to get my kd ratio up in cod as i just run at red dots on map shooting and usually end up dying more than i kill

buy another move controller , as i need 2 for some games

buy somwhere to keep all the crap( rockstar drums/ mics/ charging cables etc) and get better way to attach them to ps3....ie long cabled hub running around back instead of front one with cables everywhere

Mine are (so far):

To play and finish more games.
To buy less games.
To be patient and wait until a price drop which will always come.
To read less about games as it takes up too much of my time.

I got a bit further in HL1 but I still haven't completed it. I will stick with it rather than starting over again with the updated Black Mesa re-creation.

Still not driving but got my Vita

Got none for this year, I have to focus on Real Life this year so I won't be shelling out for any new kit or software. I'll just play what I have. I have gotten into downloading demos from the PS Store.
