You can't take it with you, you know.


post your new(ish) years resolutions for games and keep yourself honest. give yourself rewards for success or consequences for failure, if you choose.

here are mine. will probably drop a lot of the stretch games for games that release over the course of the year, or i'll get distracted by getting obsessed with an old game:

2021 goals:

  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Disco Elysium
  • Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
  • THPS1&2 Remaster
  • Arkham Knight
  • Final Fantasy Remake Hard Mode
  • Yakuza 0

(stretch)
  • Bioshock (replay)
  • Bioshock 2
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • Untitled Goose Game
  • Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze

Yakuza 0, earthbound, disco elysium, hopefully whatever yakuza game comes after 0... yakuza 1?

keeping it short because I will end up playing many many hours of the new Isaac expansion when that comes out

  • all the yakuza games 3-7
  • la-mulana 2

  • two other saga or saga-adjacent games i haven't played (saga frontier 2, unlimited, last remnant, treasure of the rudras, legend of mana)

i have a terrible habit of starting a game and even if i really like it, i'll put it on hold to start a different one, so they just pile up over time. i'm gonna make my goal to beat all the games i can remember being partway through recently before i pick up anything new.

  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses
  • Yakuza 0
  • Amid Evil
  • Doom Eternal
  • Pikmin 3
  • Super Mario 64 (120 stars)

playing for the first time but I can tell I will end up replaying it down the line... definitely a special game and maybe my favourite 16bit soundtrack ever. got the whole gang together & just about to go inside the pyramid

Finish the Dragon Quest series (finish 5, then 6-9 and 11)

Play all the Final Fantasy remasters (7 through 10-2, and the 13 trilogy)

Finish all 4 routes of Fire Emblem: Three Houses (I think I can finish the third in the next few days and then I値l only have the Black Eagles/side with Edelgard path left.

Speaking more generally I知 aiming for 2021 to be the Year of the JRPG, so I probably won稚 be able to finish all these along with all the other JRPGs I値l be trying as well, on top of all the non-JRPG games that I値l still be tempted into occasionally, so it痴 more of an aspirational goal than a realistic one, but this is what I値l have in mind this year.

The only real kick in the pants I need is to finish Super Metroid. I got to the 2nd Ridley fight and couldn't figure it out. Now it's been several months and I'm anxious that I've forgotten the controls and will only ever fail.

Simple goals this year

1. Don't buy new games just play what I have
2. Don't start up more than two games at once (stuff where you do a little a day like AC not counted)
3. Finish what I start unless I totally hate it

I'm planning on this too, starting from Kiwami (I already beat 0) You should make a simul-play thread.

My main gaming goal is to get through Yakuza, but I also want to become a "Persona Guy". Both of these things are putting a strain on my marriage because I can't stop saying Kuso and Temeeee to my wife every time she tries to talk to me.
