    Default Do you have any specific gaming goals for 2010?

    Mine:

    1. Get to 20k+ Gamer Score
    2. Learn how to create snes reproductions for japanese games.
    3. Get as close to a complete US DC collection as possible.

    I think my goal is going to be to try and scan as much of my snes stuff as I can, then pack up the cream of the crop before heading back to school in Australia.

    1. Play more of what I buy.
    2. Get my collection organized.
    3. Buy some systems I've been wanting for a while (Vectrex, Amiga CD32, Wonderswan)

    1. Get a job so I can actually buy more game stuff
    2. Weed out the bad games I still have left to go through
    3. Finish beating the games I've completed many times for my videos and finally move on to uncovered ground
    4. Start fresh in my way of buying games - only getting ones I will think I would like and actually play them till I get bored of them when I get them. Emulation, video watching, genre search, game series search and ratings will help me select new titles.
    5. Get the other systems I'm really missing out on, like at least 1 form of C64 and Amiga.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    Yeah. Totally.

    1. Somehow get more hours at work, or get a job with more hours.
    2. Get my most wanted games first, then work my way down the list.
    3. Get a freaken wii finally so I can continue my Mario collection.
    4. Finish the game review video I've been putting off, and do my other game video ideas.
    5. Go to at least 1 gaming convention.

    - Complete my Japanese Shining Force collection. (This is actually really easy, just need a spare 40 that I don't mind throwing away)
    - Buy a PS3.
    - Further complete my Sonic collection.
    - Track down the free PS2 and N64 stuff that has been promised to me.
    - Further my Saturn and Dreamcast collection.

    This is while finishing my University degree and moving away from home!

    I'll try to get much simpler goals.

    -Complete a lot of my backlog.
    -Finish more games I haven't finished and try going to my favorites less often.
    -Learn how to romhack and try to atleast starting making a game(whether I quit early on or not is a different story.) I'd like to either do a remake of Castlevania or Castlevania 2 with SCV4 gameplay or would like to translate Tactics Ogre Let Us Cling Together for the SNES(and since I know no Japanese, I'd be using the PSX version as reference.)

    Just a few gaming goals for 2010.

    - Re-purchase a good chunk of my collection that I sold off two years ago.
    - Get BitThirsty.com off the ground.
    - Finally pick up a PS3.
    - Participate a little more on the DP forums.
    - Organize my current game collection

    My one and only gaming goal for 2010 is

    - Play


    It sound stupid but this year i barely played one game until the end, Suikoden II ... and it was my second time with the game.

    I hope 2010 will be a year where i can schedule a couple of hours a week.

    Complete my Neo-Geo CD collection

    Attempt to find a working 1581 drive without spending a fortune.

    Give the new Final Fantasy a chance by ignoring all the fanboy rhetoric and giving it an honest try.

    Finish some PSP JRPGs

    Buy a new PS2 to replace the dead V9

    Stay away from the Xbox 360 for another year and quietly snicker every time someone posts about theirs dying. That should be good for a couple of laughs a day. Keep my spirits up.
