A Gamer's New Year's Resolution: "This Year, I Vow To..."
It's a new year and it's time to once again set a resolution (or two, or three).
Do you have a gaming-related resolution? Maybe you resolve not to spend so much money on your favorite hobby this year. Maybe you resolve to finish every game you start (good luck with that, if you do). Maybe you resolve to try games you never thought you'd like. Whatever it is, stick to it!
I resolve to try more downloadable content, just to see if it truly does expand upon what I deemed to be a complete experience. I almost never buy DLC for a couple reasons: 1. I usually don't have the time; if a game is done, I have to move on to the next, and 2. As an old-school gamer, I believe what I initially purchased should be a complete product. And really, for the most part, it always is. I have no complaints about that; the idea that developers are always cutting content from games to make more money on DLC doesn't fly with me. I have yet to finish a game and say, "Yep, that felt incomplete in terms of content."
I also resolve to go through Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy Tactics at least once. 2013 was the first year I didn't and I miss 'em. I have a secondary resolution to this, which is that I will drop everything I'm doing when the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remasters come out, and I'm gonna play 'em. How about you? What are your video game resolutions for 2014?
