    I believe there is enough new games that are worth at least one playthrough. Yet, I haven't finished a single one of them since Age of Decadence, so I won't be harsh on myself with goals for this year:

    1. I want to finish:
    a) Divinity: Original Sin 2
    or
    b) Pathfinder: Kingmaker

    2. Try out: Hitman (2016)

    3. Beat some classics I haven't really touched: Splinter Cell (2002)

    4. Learn to play: Crusader Kings 2


    Everything is in the place already except for Crusader Kings 2

    Lord have mercy, I might be to numb already for that kind of load :shredder:

    I want to finish the following this year:

    Demon's Winter
    I've already made some good progress on this one, and it's a cool game to relax with late at night listening to heavy metal like back in the day :)

    Ultima IV
    I finished the NES version when I was a kid, but not the computer version. I've made some progress in this one, but biggest sticking point for this game is the mind-numbing combat. I just need to suck it up and plow through it, because I REALLY want to play Ultima V and VI.

    Might & Magic I
    I'm pretty far into this one also. Now that I'm done with the classic Wizardry games, I can devote a solid chunk of time to this one.

    Bard's Tale II
    I'm more than half way through this game, but the mind-numbing combat is a chore. I transferred my party over from BT1 using the "moderate transfer" option that caps your levels, but even so, my party is completely untouchable at this point so I feel like I'm just going through the motions.

    My goal for the start of the year was to learn how to play 4x and grand strategy games(, which I used FreeCiv and Crusader's King 2 as the game for that. Now that I already have a good idea of how to play those game(doesn't mean I'm good at them, just that I have the basics down and now it is just playing them[and different kinds of 4x/grand strategy games] to get better at it), my new goal is to get into computer wargames. I thank FEDSMOKER for telling me about those computer wargames.

    once you swallow the computer wargame-loving grognard pill, it's hard to stop. you gotta sate your addiction once you swallow it

    Goal: don't buy any game released in 2020, work on backlog and or games purchased that were released prior to 2020 (e.g. Yakuza Kiwami 2).

    I want to diveinto the Wizardy series and the Might and Magic games. There are plenty of games in my gog backlog that I haven't touched yet. I think this will be a good year to fall in love with some classic RPGs, as well as more point and click adv games.

    I've a fuckload of JRPG's to playthrough for starters:

    Tales of Zesteria (Halfway through)
    Dragon Quest 11
    Persona 5
    Final Fantasy 12 (have played it halfway through before, never got the whole way through)

    Then I'm gonna return to replay FFX for the 4th time to with the new HD remake.

    Also gonna return for another Dragon Age: Origins & Witcher 2 playrthough. And might have another Divinity 2 playthrough too.

    Want to finish Assasins Creed:Origins 100%. Prob just play like 1 quest every few days for 15-20min a pop.

    Also aiming to play through every SNES, Megadrive & Master System game I have in my collection (around 200 games). Possibly gonna get some more & go through them too.

    Most importantly, I aim to talk a lot of bollocks about all of them on here too.

    Keep burning through my backlog. Which means first I have to finally finish Might and Magic VI, which is still a long way down because it is such a huge game.

    graviteam tactics is essential. all of entries from that series is worth checking out. my first actual wargame was combat mission: barbarossa to berlin and i played that shit to death during my middle school years ages ago. you can buy all the old combat mission games on gog - they're all worth playing.

    for hex-based stuff, nothing beats john tiller. you can get his old stuff on matrix games for a good value

    Codex 2016 - The Age of Grimoire
    To get back to actually completing games. Over the course of the past year, it seems like something time consuming always comes up, whether it's an illness in the family, or needing to move house for my Grandparents or something else. After a long break I hate to go back to a run of a game. I always want to start over. Then I just lose motivation to play that game again for a while.

    I hope to have the free time to really finish shit

    Play as many if not more games than I did last year. That number was 30 something in 2019. I also want to do other things a lot as well, so I might not actually follow through with that. I may or may not pick up multiplayer shooters again.

    Buy a decent computer and play some new games. I exclusively use a shitty laptop and have barely touched anything released after New Vegas.
    I want to try:

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    Divinity: Original Sin series
    Doom 2016
    Dark Souls series
    Kingdom Come: Deliverance
    The new Deus Ex games
    Prey (2017)
    Mutant Year Zero
    and maybe The Witcher 3 (still need to complete the first one, then the second)

    Some classics I haven't played before that I would like to this year:

    Betrayal at Krondor
    Darklands
    Wizardry 6-7
    Jagged Alliance series

    And finally finish some things I have started before but never finished:

    The Witcher
    Wizardry 8
    Gold Box series
    X-Com: UFO Defense
    Prelude to Darkness
    Geneforge 2-onwards

    It will be like every New Year Eve gaming resolution: Get that backlog down and stop buying new releases. And like every year I will fail, the part about not buying new releases. :negative:

    Obligatory list of games I wish to beat or get better:
    • EU4 (DLC++). I have been playing this series since EU2 but for some reason I can't seem to handle the 4th entry into the series. Also I feel that the DLC kinda feature bloated the game to a point I don't know what to do.:retarded:
    • XCOM2 WOTC. Managed to finish XCOM EU on Classic+ Ironman after a dozen tries. But I feel retarded with Xcom2, various attempts at trying to finish a Commander+ Iron man campaign . After 13 failed attempts I downgraded to Veteran+ Ironman. God I hate those mission timers (and I refuse to use mods to make them longer, as I considered it cheating). Still stuck... :argh:
    • Ass Creed Odyssey.
    • War of Succession.
    • Pride of Nations.
    • Field of Glory: Empires.
    • DCS. Bought the Mirage in the last Steam Sale. I managed to figure out how to do the start up sequence and how to air to air (even using the radar). Still half of the cockpit is a mystery to me.
    • Manage to actually beat any of my FTL-like games I own (Crying Suns at the moment).
