2014 — being one of the worst years of my life is coming to an end, when I say one of the worst years I really mean it now if I could sum it up in one sentence : 2014 can take 2006 and 2010 to dinner bang them both and never call them again bad, it really was horrible which is making me hopeful toward 2015 which sounds like a great year ahead (for gaming at least), for some reason I always like to make lists of things that I want to do the year ahead, I don’t think of them as “Resolutions” per se more like a goals list which I am hopeful to achieve in the year to come (things like make a billion dollar by sitting and farting will always remain in that list, Keep the dream alive!) but I noticed that I always make a few gaming goals for myself so I have decided to make it into a separate list and hope to achieve them while posting about them here, and the goals are :
- #5 Path of Exile, Diablo 3 and other online action RPGs
I have spend countless hours playing D3 and PoE in 2014 and for the most part I really did enjoy my time doing so but what I didn’t do is play them on weekly bases now going in 2015 I think I should set aside a few hours a week and try to keep up with Seasons and Events that occur in these games which I am really looking forward to, and I think for the starters I should start new characters and focus on a new build to play in a completely different way, yeah that sounds wonderful!
- #4 Expand the Horizon and Love the Souls series
Let me Love you…Why are you not letting me Love you?, as I mentioned in my anticipated for post recently I am not very into the Souls series but I have always liked expanding my horizons and expanding into uncharted territories so while not technically a Souls game but same developer same premise and looks faster and less dodge based so I am looking forward to it and hopefully after this one I will also pick up the Dark Souls 2 Remastered edition and give that one some love as well, again! Please let me love you!
- #3 A Storm is rising and I have to be a hero of that storm
I like MOBAs but there was a time just like my relationship with Souls I didn’t like MOBAs until I gave them some time and attention and before I knew it I was playing LoL and Dota 2 everyday, I haven’t played them in a while though but that is because I want to shift my focus toward Heroes, when the game comes out I am planning to play a match every night and try to enjoy it, and if I could put together a group of friends who want to play as well then that will be wonderful so I am very much looking forward to it.
- #2 Don’t try to get friends into games, make friends while playing that game
this is a personal point so I will try to be brief, for years I have tried to get my friends into games and I rarely had any success with it because they are just not into games the way I am but this year it worked with Destiny and my god what disaster that was, due to my unemployment and lack of social life I was able to play Destiny quite often but by the end of it the game started to feel like a group assignment and not a game at all therefore I think I am done trying to spread the religion and try to keep it to myself and play alone or with people I met in game more.
- #1 Pull up a chair by the Hearth!
it shouldn’t come at a surprise that the game I spend most of my time on in 2014 is going to be the game I spend most of my time on in 2015, to the most part I think Hearthstone could be the highlight of my year, I am planning to climb the ladder more in 2015 and maybe work my way to the high ranks and therefore more time and real organized training is required.
So here you go those are my list of gaming goals in 2015, lets hope next year is a good going to be a good one!
