So in late December of 2008, I decided to resolve a few things for my gaming year 2009. Some have been updated. One eliminated.

My resolutions were to log a game for every day in a month. I'm 3 more logged plays away from achieving that goal, even though many were played online.

I resolved to play each game I owned at least once. I still may try that, but after thinking about it - I didn't want to waste gaming time on games like Killer Bunnies or whodunit when I could use that gaming time for good games like Cuba, March Madness, Acquire, etc. So that was updated to "play as many games as I own that I can/I like". I'm good there too. Always room for more, but I feel good about this one.

Finally, the resolution I eliminated. I wanted to reach the finals of Air Baron at WBC. I was able to win my opening heat - getting me into the semifinals, but again I met a semi table with bad luck and was unable to win. I did have a much better time playing in this years semi because I played with some people I know, people I consider friends. I told one after that it was more fun to lose that game than it was to win some games I'd played in the past. It's true too.


So the question becomes, what to do for 2010. I want to make the goal worthwhile, but also realistic. The fact is, I will be student teaching in the Fall semester, so I know my games played list will suffer. I don't expect to hit 30,31,30,31 games played during Student Teaching, so I'm going to borrow/steal umfpt's idea and resolve to play all of my unplayed games and rank them over the course of the year.

I'm looking for comments and suggestions about these games. My likes are in my profile and other ranked games. What do you think I'll like/not like about each game? Do you think I'll be able to play and rank all of them?

There are 19 games right now - Christmas will push that over 20 for sure. I'll be interested in seeing how soon I can get through the list.

another from my dad. My wife is a big Grey's Anatomy fan. When he told me what the game was about, I immediately though of that show. We should've tried it by now.
