With the new year comes the start of a new gaming resolution. In 2009, I tried, and ultimately came up short in my attempt to beat three games for each one that I acquired. This year, I’m pursuing something far crazier and ambitious. My plan is to evolve my collection into something a little cooler, a little smaller, and a little more diverse, and to simultaneously reduce my backlog to no more than 10 games, all by the end of the year.
The tactics required for this are diverse, they involve:
1. Selling off games I no longer want, or which I will honestly never get around to playing
2. Buying the classic games I really want
3. Beating games with passion and intensity instead of letting them linger forever
To kick off this insane plan, I have delved into the deepest core of my anal-retentive nature, and assembled a complete list of my video game collection. This database, in addition to this blog, will give me something to manage over the course of this year as I slowly progress through the project. Enjoy marveling at my madness.
