One Down, 159 To Go.

So when 2010 became 2011 I told myself that this would be the year I actually make a dent on my ever growing pile of unfinished games. A new Steam sale rolls around, I inevitably buy several new games despite the fact I have loads I could play which I bought in the last Steam sale. But no more! Before I allow myself to buy even more games, I need to actually play the games I have. So I set myself a new years resolution.

A gaming resolution (no, not 1650x1050 you jokers) I guess you could say. Today I made a start! I picked a game at random on my Steam list and the lucky winner was Big Brain Wolf. A point and click adventure puzzle game, quite similar to Professor Layton on the Nintendo DS with a sprinkling of Brain Training added in for good measure. I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed it, but then, I'm a big fan of the Professor Layton series so it makes sense I'd enjoy something which is more of the same puzzle wise. I even hung around after the credits to pick up the last couple of achievements.

Admittedly it's not the longest of games but it's a good start! I beat a game! I'm now halfway to the amount of games I finished in 2010! Now, what to complete next? Who knows, if you've a suggestion feel free to let me know and (if I own it) maybe I'll listen to you and then you get to read what I think about it later!

I wish I had the time to beat all the games I own on Steam.

Don't I know it. My steam games are slowly turning into this list of shame, but with no regrets.
 
When I'm old and retired, then maybe I'll get around to playing them. Too bad that's about 40 years from now. By that point I'm sure steam will just beam games directly into your head.

@ajamafalous: Heh, yeah I'm possibly being a bit optimistic here, it's likely I won't get around to playing even half of them between studying and work, but we'll see! A fun little goal for the year none the less.

a noble goal. maybe when you're done you can finish all my steam games so i won't feel bad about buying them and never playing them.
