It’s day 11 of the Creative Christmas collaboration, where a group of bloggers are coming together to tackle 12 video-game-related questions based around a loose festive storyline. Following on from yesterday’s answer about the character you’d most like to borrow a party outfit from, the next question is:
Midnight eventually rolls around, which means it’s now time to pick a New Year gaming resolution to see you through the next 12 months. What’s your choice for 2018?
Last January, shortly after the beginning of Later Levels, I wrote a post about my New Year’s resolution to play more video games in 2017. It’s obvious I failed looking back on it now: I only ended up picking up one of the ten titles I listed that that article and seven are still sitting somewhere on my wishlist (with two being pushed back and not yet released).
While ‘playing more games’ is a worthy declaration, it’s not one which is easily achievable when you’re an adult. My other-half and I are still in the middle of house renovations, our work hours have been ridiculous lately and my stepson keeps us busy on the weekends. But the three of us enjoy gaming together and that’s not something I see changing any time soon, so perhaps I need to adjust the angle for my 2018 resolutions.
Those are my gaming resolutions for 2018 and with any luck, I’ll have a better shot at reaching them than the one set last January. I’m going to take this opportunity to note some for blogging here also as a way of keeping myself focused, so here’s what I’m going to attempt to achieve this year in terms of the site and WordPress community:
Hopefully I’ll be able to read this post in January 2019 and feel as though I’ve managed to achieve at least some of these declarations, if not all. Whatever your resolutions are and whatever you’re up to this evening, I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve.

The Creative Christmas collaboration is open to everyone and further details can be found in this post if you’d like to join in! Tomorrow’s question: You wake up the following morning, hungover but happy – you have an entire day of gaming ahead of you. You start thinking back over the video games you played during 2017; what was your game of the year?
