The lights are on
2011 is mere hours from being a distant memory as 2012 overtakes the previous year in what will undoubtedly be a violent altercation. The new year means resolutions, and while I have some not so important throw-away ones like eat healthier and learn how to do a back flip, I also have some important video game ones that I will write on a big dry-erase board and hang above my TV.My biggest one, is to try to step out of my comfort zone. I like shooters, platformers and action games, but I have never liked strategy games, and I tend to avoid turn-based RPGs. This year, I will try to experiment in those genres more so that I can get closer to becoming a video game expert and offer you guys better, more rounded opinions.I also want to get all the achievements in Dead Space 2... maybe. The only one I have left is beating the game on the hardest difficulty, and that's scarier than any of monsters that tried to sever my limbs in my first few playthroughs.What about you? When it comes to video games, what will you do differently in 2012, if anything?

Dive into my backlog and play some classics while playing the new games. Oh, and getting the new handhelds.
Platinum more games, and play more RPGs.
Play less Cod, More other games like I started near 2011's end, get a PS3, sell my wii, continue to play xbox, keep up hope for kinect games, oh and play some basketball/run/paint.
My resolution is to at the very least attempt to play every first party Nintendo game released for the 3DS this year, and to hit 1000 hours in Skyrim, I'm already 1/5 of the way there...
Make a schedule to progress in all my games,
beat the crap out of disgaea 1 and 2
