Hey, Gamers! Happy New Year! I hope everyone managed to stay safe this holidays, and I hope you all had a good time spending whatever time you could with loved ones. I wanted to start this New Year off with a list of goals that I wish to achieve in 2022. Goals surrounding gaming, obviously. I’m usually the type of person to set myself a crazy amount of goals that are completely unattainable, but this year, it’s different. I feel like I actually reached my non-gaming goal last year, so I’m trying my best to keep having realistic goals and expectations. With University finishing for me this year, I’m hoping to have some more time on my hands to explore more games so I figured it would be a good thing to have some set goals. Here we go!
- Get the Platinum trophy in Detroit: Become Human.
I love this game, and I was so set on getting the Platinum trophy before Persona 5 Strikers came out. It was actually the first game I streamed on Twitch. I love the characters, the story and the number of endings it has. I think it’s the one game that I truly love the gameplay of, too. Of course, Persona 5 Strikers came out so I was occupied by that, and then I was/ am doing my AI-run of Persona 5 Royal. But I really want to get the Platinum in Detroit because it means a lot to me.
- Finish my Persona 5 Royal AI Takeover.
I am currently at the Kaneshiro boss fight. I have been sick on and off since the end of November, so streaming and my whole playthrough have had to be put on the backbench for now. But I love this challenge, and there are so many other challenges that I want to explore. I can’t wait until I’m able to say that I completed this run.
- Finish the Yakuza games.
Josh finished these games in a year. Less than a year, even. I know that I love the story. I’m on Yakuza 3 after playing Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2. It’s just one of those games that I just forget about sometimes, but I hope to be done with them by the end of this year. Not because I’m not enjoying them, but because I want to know the complete story and be able to talk to people about it.
- Play The Witcher 3… again.
So, for those who don’t know, The Witcher 3 was one of the first games I ever played. Since then, I’ve played quite a few games and read most of the Witcher books (I’m on the last few pages of Tower of the Swallow and I’ll probably start Lady of the Lake tomorrow). I feel like I understand how games work more, and I would understand the plot a whole lot more if I played the game again. I think it would be a completely different experience. I love the universe and the characters so I just want to take in as much as I can.
- Finish Dark Souls.
I’ve put a slight pause on my Bloodborne run, and we don’t really play Dark Souls 3 with Josh’s brothers anymore so Dark Souls is the last game I have that I can complete. More importantly, it feels like the only one that I have a chance to complete. Josh and I are going to get it on the PS5 because his PS4 is out of commission, so then we’ll be able to play it together again.
- Stream more consistently.
This is one that is much more complicated than it seems on the surface. This means getting my health in check, which is further complicated by huge waiting lists. It means being more organised, more – on top of things? I just love streaming and making new friends. I have a tendency of burning myself out with streaming because there are so many different aspects of it to consider, especially because I’m autistic.
- Have a decent island in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Our island is a mess. Like, a literal mess. I would like to get it under wraps and just- not perfect, because no island is perfect… but, okay. I want to be able to be satisfied with our island by the time 2022 is over.
- Try 1 new game per month.
This is much more specific than my original goal of ‘playing more games’. I know so many people play so many different games, but I tend to stick to my same old 3-5 games. 1 game a month is a minimum, and it’s realistic because I have PlayStation Plus. I want to try more games outside of my comfort zone, so having this goal will keep me on track.
- Get all of the story trophies for Catherine: Full Body.
While I do want to get the Plat for Catherine: Full Body, I think it would be unrealistic of me to have all of these goals and expect myself to conquer all levels of Babel. So, my goal is to slowly get around to getting all of the story trophies because, after that, all I really have to worry about is Babel. I can train throughout the year for that, too.
- Make this blog a safe place for Gamers.
This is a bit cliché and really I’ve been working on it this whole time, but I just want this blog to be a safe place. That’s why I’m no longer going to be putting out posts asserting my opinion. Instead, I’m just going to be sharing my opinion and the reasons behind it, and probably asking you for yours. My goal for this blog is so much different than it was when it started, and I love that. It shows growth and potential. I hope that this blog can be a safe place where people can come and read cool stuff sometimes, share their opinions sometimes, and just be themselves. This isn’t the type of gaming blog where it’s full of factual information. It’s full of emotion and love and passion. That’s what I have to share, it’s what I put out there and I hope that’s what you get out of it.
So, that’s it for this post, Gamers! These are some of the goals I wish to stick to and achieve in 2022. Do you have any goals you want to share? Let me know in the comments below! If you want to watch our streams, we stream on Twitch and our channel is 2nerds_1game. See you next post, Gamers!
