Re: 2020 Gaming Goals and Resolutions

A few months into the year and I have been doing a good job of sticking to my resolutions.

I have to say I haven't collected for a system in a long time and I am really glad I got into wii collecting. There are so many great, unique experiences on this system and it is grossly under rated. I get there was a lot of shovel ware on the system (with 1200+ games in its library, how could there not be) but there really are some fantastic wii exclusives out there besides the token Mario/Zelda's etc.

I'm constantly stumbling upon new games and really enjoying what the system offers, I have also developed a new appreciation for the wiimote/nunchuck. There definitely are some games that shoehorn motion controls in and suck, but the games that use it well it just works great and is so much fun. I just think it adds a nice level of immersion for certain games and couldn't imagine playing games like red steel 2 or sin and punishment without them.

Looking back on the resolutions I made in January, I've made good progress so far, and have finished three of the seven games I mentioned. The titles I finished so far are: Beyond Oasis, Shining Force 2, and Shenmue II.

I'm currently focused on Wonder Boy in Monster World, but after that I might start up Super Mario RPG, which I also listed in my resolutions to revisit and play again.

I think I'm still on track to finish most of the games I mentioned earlier in the year. The only exception is Symphony of the Night, as I still haven't purchased it yet.

Hey look at that, we're quarter of the way through the year.

Make a significant dent in my RPG and strategy backlogs

3. Paper Mario: Colour Splash (Wii U)
4. Valkyria Chronicles (Switch eShop)

In April I'll probably try to play Herzog Zwei.



Focus purchases on gen 5 consoles and Nintendo portables

Mostly doing this. I picked up one or two other things, but I've also bought a couple of harder to obtain N64 and Saturn games, as well as a bunch of Game Boy stuff.


Beat more games than I buy
I'm about even currently.

On track so far - I have 13 games on the games acquired list and 15 on games beaten.

I didn't get around to playing one in April - it's been a tough month. I'll try and play Herzog Zwei this year and post my thoughts though!

February: The Firemen & Bishoujou Senshi Sailor Moon
March: Rastan & Rainbow Islands
April: Didn't play (meant to play Herzog Zwei)
May: Didn't play (meant to play Grandia II)

June should be fine though - I have SRPGs in progress and upcoming to play



Focus purchases on gen 5 consoles and Nintendo portables

Mixed. Recent purchases have been on Switch and Game Gear.

On track so far - I have 20 beaten and 16 purchased.


Beat one game for every console I haven’t beaten a game on in the last 2 years:
• PS2 – Freak Out
Vita – Undertale
• PSP – Yggdra Union
• GG – The GG Shinobi II
• 3DO – Star Control 2
• PCE – The Gate of Thunder
• NGPC – Cardfighters Clash
• PC – Discworld Noir

Still played none of these. But I did beat a Vita game already, so I'll mark that off.

With Atelier Iris 3 and half of the year being over, I've decided to update my progress on this list.

My next three games will be the final games on this list.

Then, I'm going to try to reduce my Unfinished to underneath 40. That might take a moment as I have been beating games slower this year or I've been playing some much longer games.

I have completed all of my console goals!! :D

All that is left is to focus on my main goal.

I'll also be able to pick and choose what games I want to play for the rest of the year. I might do some quick short games to hopefully get back on track as I feel like I'm a bit behind at the moment.
