What Are Your 2016 Gaming Resolutions?

The new year is upon us, which means its time to make big promises to ourselves that we probably won’t keep. My 2016 gaming resolution is to finally finish all of the Legend of Zelda games. What’s yours?


Confession time. I’ve played every game in The Legend of Zelda series, but I’ve only finished two of them—A Link to the Past on the Super Nintendo and its follow-up, A Link Between Worlds. I came dangerously close to completing Ocarina of Time back in the day, and most recently got really far in the Wind Waker remake for the Wii U, but I’ve never sealed the deal. I watched someone else play through Twilight Princess, which does not count at all.

But hey, with Twilight Princess getting an updated version this year, now’s the perfect time. I’ve got the Gamecube version of Wind Waker on tap, with the bonus disc that’s packed with more Zelda goodness. I am in a good place to get this done in 2016.


And no, that doesn’t include the CD-I games. Or should it? Hmm.

Either way, that’s my gaming promise to myself for 2016. Your turn! Is it time to attack your backlog? Will you finally get those last achievements in your favorite game? Tell us.

To buy less games. I don’t finish 90% of the games I buy. That isn’t to say that I regret buying those games cause I still have fun playing the majority of them and I totally believe you can buy a game full price, never finish it but still feel you’ve gotten your moneys worth. Still I’d like to start finishing more games and I think buying less of them is a good place to start.

Too bad for me this seems to be the year of the JRPG :(
